The score to The General's Daughter was released by Milan Records. Here, for demo purposes, are some excerpts:
" The best aspect of the film was the score by Carter Burwell, who I think is one of the best composers in Hollywood today." - Todd McCarthy on Siskel and Ebert, June, 1999.
"... Carter Burwell’s score, which is rounded out by some wonderfully selected folk music, demonstrates how an imaginative artist can make something distinctive, even memorable, out of a potentially routine assignment that most composers would handle with predictable, hard-charging 'suspense' music; his approaches to musical backgrounding are always unusual and effective." - Variety, June 1999.
