Haunting and Powerful...

If I had to describe this movie soundtrack in one word, that word would be: Haunting. This soundtrack is truly a testament to how effective music can be on a film. Though "Requiem For A Dream" is a terrific film, the sountrack made it what it is. I left the theatre more moved by the soundtrack and how it related to the character's plight that the imagery presented by the film. "Lux Aeterna" is the quintessential example of this with the almost horror feel of it. The strings in this soundtrack are so well presented, that I had an impulse to learn violin :). I highly recommend this soundtrack to lovers of the more modern classical style of music, and to those who loved the film. If you have yet to view this film, I recommend seeing it immediately, to witness the true effects of drugs upon the user.

beautiful and haunting

this soundtrack is incredible. even on its own, it's beautiful and haunting. definitely worth the nine bucks for all 30-something songs! five stars from me.

This is a good album. Lux Aeterna is a really good song, but wasn't the one I was looking for. The one I was looking for was faster and a bit more intense. If you're looking for that one, it's on the Requiem for a Tower album broken up in three 50 sec. segments. Someone posted a review on how to get them in the right order and it works.
