Jonathan Elias

While he has come to be derided for his work in the pop-rock arena -- particularly his contributions to Yes' disastrous Union album -- Jonathan Elias has had a fairly lengthy career as an underscore composer for motion pictures and television, beginning with the music for Children of the Corn. Moving out of the movie business towards the mid-'90s, he went to work in the advertising business, gaining attention (and awards) for his music for various Energizer and milk commercials. An all-star orchestral album, Prayer Cycle, followed in 1999. ~ Steven McDonald

I absolutely love his stuff. It takes me on an adventure, much like Koji Kondo or Yasunori Mitsuda.

Love this stuff. And Yes's Union album was not a disaster, by the way.

many of the Pandora bios leave much to be desired. This is a good example.

Whenever I'm driving over Boulder Mountain in southern Utah, I always turn this album on. It is one of the most spectacular roads in the world, and this music enhances the experience. Definitely one of my favorite composers and albums.

Truly moves in a deeper way than mist I've found. The prayer cycle is an astounding composition, and even American River seems to expand my awareness of beauty and help my lightness of Being.

Agreed, this bio is really unflattering - - s e v e r e l y lacking. His music is beautiful, artistically composed.

So agree with last comments - this was great music - the bio is misplaced.

Why would you make such a terse and unflattering biography for this man? He's a musician and a composer, not a politician. He makes music. Derided? Really?
