EDITORS’ NOTES

A slow-moving locomotive of icy disquiet—that’s what powers this sonic accompaniment to the film adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ hit suburban thriller. More than anything, it’s a showcase for Elfman’s supreme adaptability. The discordant piano of “Something’s Not Right” updates his gothic playbook, the bustling synth on “3 Women” swaps out the strings, and “Memory”—a brooding hunk of post-rock—is about as far as you can get from The Simpsons theme.

Masterful and Classic Elfman

This is a great film score. One of the truly best by Danny Elfman. I have followed his career for 30+ years, and he has composed many a fine score. I would defintely rate this as my favorite electronic/sampled score by him. Some acoustic textures seem to be worked in too, but it's mostly electronic.
Most importantly, he's created melodic/textural fragments that weave in and out of the score that work perfectly to picture. Yes, I saw the film as well, and I couldn't have asked for a more heartbreaking, beautiful, lonely, mesmerizing, or wonderful score than what I got here from Danny Elfman! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
