Mansell's best score yet

drchicago

If your a fan of this genius then this is a most own, if your not a fan, then your insane. Its another before score due to the fantastic electronic melodies used. All of Mansell's scores have been great, even the score for Doom was good! This is one of those scores that you will listen to constantly a long with his other scores, most notably The Fountain. This also isn't just a great score because it sounds so good, but it also works amazing well for the film itself. Moon is a fantastic film and his score contributed to the drama and added tension. Buy this soundtrack and also see the movie.

An Incredible Soundtrack

Chuck Sandwich

Clint Mansell never fails with his mastery of darker, haunting pieces. This soundtrack perfectly fits the movie it was composed for and is a fantastic listen.
If you're a Mansell fan don't hesitate. If you're looking for a great soundtrack to think or travel with definitely consider this a wonderful purchase.

Creepy / Wonderful

Just like the film, the music is both haunting and very atmospheric. A little like Requiem for a Dream in that sense. But probably not as creepy. Anyhow - it's a good sountrack!

About Clint Mansell

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 that 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 Crabb, then recruited the fourth Poppie, Richard March, and proceeded to release an EP as Wild & Wandering. On their next self-released EP, the band finally came to rest with the name Pop Will Eat Itself, stolen from an NME article.

Signed to Chapter 22, Pop Will Eat Itself put out a series of singles and a pair of albums that attracted a lot of attention. Eventually, they signed to RCA. After three albums, innumerable singles, and a fair amount of critical and commercial success, RCA dumped them. They immediately signed with their former A&R man's label, Infectious. After another pair of albums, the band began to fragment. Crabb split for his own project, Golden Claw Music, and in 1996, Pop Will Eat Itself split up.

Mansell moved to the U.S. after the breakup. He then proceeded to write the score to the movie Pi, and he produced a limited-edition U.K. remix 12" of the movie's theme. In addition, he has worked with Trent Reznor, both helping with remixes and appearing on Nine Inch Nails' album The Fragile, and has pursued film scoring aggressively, including the scores for Requiem for a Dream, Moon, Noah, The Fountain, Stoker, and Black Swan, the latter of which received a Grammy nomination. Mansell delivered more critically acclaimed scores in subsequent years, including those for Ben Wheatley's cinematic adaptation of J.G. Ballard's High Rise, the live-action remake of Ghost in the Shell, the first fully painted animated film Loving Vincent, and a short score for the Emmy Award-winning San Junipero episode of satirical anthology series Black Mirror. ~ Joshua Landau
