It is worth noting that, for the orchestrations, Goldsmith turned to regular David Arnold collaborator Nicholas Dodd, and the symphonic know-how he brings to each score on which he works is apparent √ê there are several moments that, in terms of the orchestration, recall the more tender moments of Independence Day, fanning further the flames of the debate about just how much of Mr. Arnold√ïs success is because of Dodd√ïs input. It is also perhaps important to mention that, for the first time, Dodd has received a composing credit, for the end credits song √îKeeps This World Alive√ï, which is performed with a corny Cockney accent by former Herman√ïs Hermit Peter Noone. On the whole, though, Diamonds is a sweet, wholly enjoyable score Cues worth a special mention include the first presentation of the main theme in √îDiamonds Main Title√ï; the Rodeoish √îHarry Drives√ï; the sadly short √îAunt & Uncle√ïs House√ï, in which Goldsmith tosses his main theme back and forth between different string soloists; and the gently moving √îMarriage√ï, which features some superb horn work. The heart-melting 4-minute finale √îCompartment in Box√ï is likely to go down as one of the most beautiful individual cues of Goldsmith√ïs career, while √îLance√ïs Girl√ï is an interesting anomaly, coming across as a peculiar combination of Quentin Tarantino-style √ísurfer√ì music and traditional Indian bhangra.
