Album Review

Mark Isham's score for Simon West's film, The Mechanic (starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster) was recorded in Prague with the Czech National Orchestra as well as electric guitars, an array of keyboards, percussionists, and drum machines. Here, the organic and the synthetic come together in a seamless whole to reflect everything from nearly unbearable brooding tension, explosive drama, haunting scoundscapes, and eclectic side paths into neo-classical, jazz, near-ambient, and rock music. Isham has become a composer of real vision; he understands that action films are served far better by subtlety and understatement, suggestion, and nuance, rather than simply bombast. This collector's edition brings together not only the score as it appeared in the film, but also contains all of the cues that were left out, thereby creating a long, enduring, focused work that stands on its own wonderfully as a listening experience.

What song was playing on the record player?

Pretty good for Isham!

I normally don't listen to his work (other then The Crazies) but when I heard he was to score this movie I got interested... I listened to some preview tracks but my favorite is "The Mechanic" track, I assume the main there... can't wait to see the movie now!

Real names of songs?

The name of melody in recordplayer is Schubert: trio in E-Flat, OP. 100. This soundtrack only has short background music for certains scenes in movie, thus, names of tracks. DOES NOT have the real songs/melodies used in the movie, too bad.

8-30-11 Name of song (girl singing in bar) is "Better off Dead", her name is Linnzi Zaorski. enjoy

Born September 7, 1951, to a musical family in New York, Isham began studying classical music (specifically trumpet, piano, and violin) as a child. His family later moved to San Francisco, where Isham played with several local orchestras. However, he was also interested...
