Another talented yet unknown composer
New and unknown composers seem to be coming out of the woodwork right now, and this is another example except this guy has been around for a while. He's had 62 years to perfect his craft, and it's sad that after all that time, the mainstream film score crowd has not heard of him, at least not here in the U.S. My favorite track here is "For Harriet". It is restrained for the most part and has an emotional impact without going over the top. This is another composer to add to my watch list, along with Nico Muhly, Abel Korzeniowski and Josh Kramer (one of my new favorites).
Strong Without Being Over the Top
I really enjoyed the album; it suited the atmosphere of the movie perfectly. The soundtrack, which is by long-time experienced composer Jacob Groth, packs a very subtle punch. Where it lacks that adrenaline-rush feel that some big-movie soundtracks supply, the music from this movie is insidious, giving the feeling of something creeping along imperceptibly-- that goosebumps feeling that seems to be faulting in many of today's OSTs. Definitely a good buy for soundtrack fans of any genre. My personal favorite is "Moving", which employs heavy drums and a bit of synthetic sound to get across the panicked, energized feeling. Definitely worth it.
