What You Will Hear: Playful woodwinds and pizzicato strings, mixed with some acoustic (Spanish?) guitar and a wide range of interesting instrumentation. Also, a wide variety of pop tunes peppered throughout.
Standout Tracks: Marmalade Harvest, Arrival In London, This Will Do Nicely, The Letter Home, Bear Bath, Escape From Millicent
Will you be humming along? An energetic theme takes over from the first moment of the first track.
The score this makes me want to dust off: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty - Theodore Shapiro (Not for any resemblance in sound, but for their shared endearing quirkiness.)
Will I come back to it? I will be revisiting the first half of this album. There was a pretty steep drop off after that. But, the tracks listed above are absolute fun. I don't know the history of the Paddington character at all, but this music made me like him immediately.
