Review

Review Text Combining Bruce Broughton's saccharine score with a jumble of seasonal pop hits, the soundtrack to the 1994 remake of the Christmas classic Miracle on 34th Street is as much a product of test-marketing and Hollywood groupthink as the movie itself, pleasing no one in its attempts to please everyone. Clocking in at under 30 minutes in length, the disc assembles only a few of Broughton's original themes. The haunting "Bellevue Carol" suggests the depth and complexity of the composer's best work, but other selections like "Overture" and "Signing" are too self-consciously festive to resonate. The remainder of the collection features overly familiar material like Elvis Presley's "Santa Claus Is Back in Town" -- and for listeners who actually like lumps of coal in their stockings, there's Kenny G's soul-crushing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." ~ Jason Ankeny
