EDITORS’ NOTES

No spoilers here, but if you've seen David Fincher's Gone Girl, you know that one of the movie's signature achievements is balancing a surreal mix of tones: love's first blush comes with a creepy footnote, while moments of terror are cruelly humorous. Frequent Fincher collaborators Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross reinforce these ambiguities with their mind-bending score. Comprised of synth washes and lonely pianos, ominous chords and angry squelches, these pieces express the aura of dread and confusion that haunts the film. Those wishing to relive one of the movie's nuttiest scenes can skip right to "Consummation."

Creative Fuel

Another fantasic score by Reznor and Ross. In addition to being a great listen while reading the book, it also serves as wonderful background music to any task. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross continue to be able to capture emotion digitally through electronic drones and haunting keyboard melodies. Where Dragon Tattoo gives a sense of mystery and sickness, Gone Girl gives a sense of facade (Sugar Storm), duality (Just Like You), and fear (Technically, Missing). Give this and their other soundtracks a listen while writing, painting, studying, or any other brain-heavy activity and you will not be disappointed with the results, this sort of music is pure creative fuel.

Trent's and Atticus best score yet.

I've been a fan of these two since "The Social Network" and their new collaboration doesn't disappoint. If you thought "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's" score was creepy, wait till you hear this. I'll make this short and sweet: If you love these two, but it.

Favorite Track:
"The Way He Looks at Me"

Another Oscar worthy soundtrack

Trent and Atticus are back at it. This should definitely be on the nomination board come Oscar time
