Reviews:

Citing as inspiration such seminal film composers as Elmer Bernstein and Thomas Newman, and contemporary symphonic composers like Tobias Picker and Morten Lauridsen, Carpenter had long imagined this project but it wasn't until she had the chance to work with Mendoza that it came to fruition. The result reprises 10 of Carpenter's songs in Mendoza's distinctively beautiful and cinematic arrangements to give the listener the continuum of a film soundtrack, albeit an imaginary one.
