The atmospheric Promised Land established the young James Newton Howard as a composer with an uncommon grasp of mood and nuance. A series of beautifully pastoral themes capturing the mysticism of everyday life, Promised Land is one of the few scores of the late '80s not shackled to the sound and sensibilities of its moment in time. With the great David Grisman contributing mandolin to several tracks, the music boasts a folksy, rural beauty that's undeniably fetching.
