Varèse Sarabande release the soundtrack for the original motion picture The Founder. The film features original music composed by Carter Burwell, with classic tracks by artists including Doris Day, The Ramblers, Bob Gaddy And His Alley Cats, The Dixieaires, and a special performance of the beloved classic 'Pennies From Heaven' by stars Michael Keaton and Linda Cardellini. The film tells the story of Ray Kroc and his popularisation of McDonald’s...
In truth I'm not normally a fan of soundtracks that mix the score with eclectic various artists tracks. However, in the case of The Founder, this mix works rather well. This is probably down to the fact that the songs chosen are era specific and represent tracks that have pretty much stayed low key over the years. And, it's always nice to hear a Penguin Café Orchestra - even if it is one that you've heard a million times before.
Carter Burwell turns in some interesting, if instantly forgettable, themes here. It's not the sort of album you'll still be playing in a few months time, but for a little light relief this is a good, sturdy score. The album contains 32 tracks (1 hr, 04 min, 05 sec).
