Sublime & Emotionally Evocative

I purchased this soundtrack only this morning to listen too on the way to work, and have since kept it playing all day in at least one ear. After spending months anticipating the release of the movie 'The Fountain' in Australia since viewing the preview on the internet, I suspected that the soundtrack was going to be good after becoming hooked on Clint Mansell’s rather frenetic offering for ‘Requiem for a Dream’ – which is another fantastic accompaniment to a film from director Darren Aronofsky. I honestly wasn’t expecting the evocative and emotional journey that the audience is taken on listening to this soundtrack. Mansell isn’t predictable in that his work is hardly consistent from movie to movie – his adaptability to a movie’s needs being a strength – but here he has managed to truly surprise me in creating something that while relatively simple in its instrumentation and composition, possesses an impact and depth that I found myself inspired and touched by. Whilst tracks ‘The Last Man’, ‘Tree of Life’ and ‘Stay With Me’ have significant appeal, it’s ‘Death Is The Road to Awe’ which is truly the standout example of what this album has too offer the listener and is the track to get if you’re after a flavour of the feast. What starts as a slow, moving instrumental piece builds to a climactic finish that I’ve listened to several times. While best enjoyed as a whole to experience the build-up, the last two minutes of this track is truly the most powerful - particularly from 7:35/-0:50 onwards, which is a sublime finish to the work. I’ve been informed that the evocative nature of this soundtrack only becomes more profound after being linked in the mind with key moments and images in the film itself, which by all reports is a visually spectacular - though dense - emotional journey with the ability to resonate with a viewer long after the first viewing (apparently some have seen it five times and still come out flabbergasted - not a bad thing if you ask me). I can’t wait to see it now, this soundtrack having sold me on its potential if only to see the imagery that goes along with this excellent composition. Glorious.


This piece takes you away and makes you believe in beauty, the melancholic type.... Its like a drug that makes your mind beg for more. Never rising too high to disturb the rythm of subtlety that Clint Mantell has created. Its awesome.

Achingly beautiful music

Soundtracks can be very hit and miss, but with The Fountain, Clint Mansell and the Kronos Quartet prove their mastery of the form. Haunting and emotionally powerful without ever being melancholic, this ranks as some of the finest music ever to accompany a motion picture. Truly beautiful music and thoroughly recommended.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Frontman for the sadly defunct Pop Will Eat Itself, among other things, Clint Mansell (b. January 7, 1963, Coventry, England) has played a lot of music. Affectionately known as Clint Poppie, he started out in 1981, forming a group called From Eden, which included future members of Pop Will Eat Itself, in the English industrial city of Stourbridge. After several years, the band broke up (they argued over who had performed better on The Tube). Mansell, along with future Poppies Adam Mole and Graham...
