Penguins March

Alex Wurman, The March of the Penguins
LP, Warners

Penguins! Linux lovers will probably check this out just because the OS mascot is a penguin and penguins are generally kind of cute.

This CD is actually the score for a movie where lots of penguins march about the place in an environment that is both beautiful and forbidding. The score is neo-Romantic but more in a chamber group kind of way than an overblown orchestra way. The tones are organic, smooth, and analogue and the whole thing, while tracing varying movements on the screen, is quite tranquil.
