James Mangold's mind-bending, postmodern thriller Identity features an equally complex score that borrows freely from the idioms of Bernard Herrmann's classic music for Hitchcock's films, as well as from the more subdued, electronic-tinged music that soundtracks many current horror films and thrillers. "Prologue" fuses brooding, poignant melody with creepy-crawly sounds that lie just beneath the surface; "Settling In" mixes tablas and crunchy electronic beats with spooky, sitar-like guitars; and "No Second Chance" mixes the famous, stabbing strings from Psycho with some abstract percussion. "Lou Is Dead" is a particularly scary track, with slashing cymbals, rumbling drums, and strings that sound like muffled screams; even quieter pieces like "Orange Grove" and "What Have You Done?" have a muted tension to them. Indeed, Identity is such an effectively tense score that it doesn't necessarily work as a listening experience outside of the film's context; nevertheless, fans of horror film music should enjoy the soundtrack both as a part of the movie and as a well-crafted piece of music.
The whole album
This is so unfair Apple!!
An interesting, yet complex score from Silvestri. Loved the mix of both twisted suspense and emotion via violin, as well as the nod to the Psycho theme in No Second Chance . The best tracks are Settling In and Suicide Jumper.
I was very surprised at how good this was. This soundtrack really brings suspense to the movie.
