Minimalist composer, electronic whiz kid, and frequent Steven Soderbergh collaborator Cliff Martinez wraps an Eno-esque blanket of chilly sunlight and subdued dread around the Josh Hartnett thriller Wicker Park. Martinez's hypnotic work on Traffic and Solaris complemented Soderbergh's intimate narrative style, so it's no real surprise that he attacks the suspense genre with the same amount of elegant subtlety. Plot boilers like Wicker Park are at their most effective when the lights are low and the only sound is the mounting of a boot at the foot of the stairs, and Martinez's ability to lay back and let the blood pressure rise is apparent throughout, utilizing loops and whistles — as well as strings — like Thomas Newman scoring an episode of The X-Files. As a stand-alone listening experience, Wicker Park suffers from a lack of memorable motifs and cues, but makes for a delicious and melancholy soundtrack for a rainy afternoon in the attic.
Love the Dark stuff!
I'm not familiar with Cliff Martinez, but I'm on a kick finding new composers. I'm really kinda digging this stuff actually. It's different and refreshing. I like the electronic/orchestral build ups and it kind of reminds me of a cross between Brian Tyler and Harry Gregson-Williams, especially on the track "What Shoe Size". Also reminds me of a couple tracks on Josh Kramer's "Beginnings" cd, especially his song "Tense".

Along the lines of what Cliff has done so well with music he has done for movies such as "Traffic", and "Solaris" for director Steven Soderbergh. His work is always interesting, consistent and admired by colleagues such as I. G
I love Cliff Martinez and have several albums, but why doesn't this album have a track #8?
