Album Review

Composer Paul Haslinger is no stranger to darkness. The classically trained pianist and former member of Krautrock ensemble Tangerine Dream has a gift for moody soundscapes as evidenced by his cinematic 1999 world fusion record Score. He stays true to his muse on the Underworld soundtrack, peppering the gothic fable with one brutal dirge after another, leaving a trail of carnage littered with mid-'90s industrial waste. To Haslinger there is no post-Nine Inch Nails universe; The Crow has not yet begot The Matrix. Like an oily, inner-city river, he fills every ounce of space with clanging metal and distant wailing synths, pausing only on the fleeting "Suspended Memories" to dabble in soft piano and open water. Despite its monotony this unflinching approach works, offering a glimpse into what Ministry could have been had they entered the world of film music — they turned the pounding, single-note melody into an art form. Amid this cacophony lies the heart of Underworld; its pulse is pure and devoid of irony. The vampires and werewolves may rule the city in their tight leather pants, but it's Haslinger who makes them dance.

Awsome...a MUST buy CD

This is an awsome album. I loved this CD but now I love it even more because it is now complete with the Red Tape song that I have been waiting for for a long time. If you love Underworld this is the CD for you. I highly recommend it. Paul Haslinger's music really is a piece of art.

Love Haslinger!

I'm a little bummed to see that the album is by song only, but that aside, it's really meaty suspense/action/horror music, mostly created with orchestral samples, as credited in the end of the movie. Paul Haslinger writes some really cool stuff (check out SLEEPER CELL); he's up there with Patrick Doyle, Kerry Muzzey, and Alexandre Desplat as "composers that I wish I could hear in movies more often." Thankfully they're starting to pop up everywhere lately!

Eternity and a Day!

the way Haslinger starts soft with a beautiful piano solo then softly moving to the rest of the orchestra (and I think, choir) with that beautiful and haunting melody was pure beauty in sound.
