Album review: Stoker score by
Clint Mansell

VIDEO: Clint Mansell — In Full Bloom

Some soundtracks aren’t worth buying, but Clint Mansell’s always are.

The composer who provided the music for the Requiem for a Dream and Moon movies continues his good work here on Stoker, a gothic mystery thriller directed by Park Chan-wook.

Mansell refuses to impose any single emotion on the listener in his finely nuanced score, which conveys the film’s fear, sorrow and beauty by subtly evoking the spirit of each instrument.

An epic pop collaboration with Emily Wells and a piano treat from Philip Glass make this decent record a great one – where orchestral, electronic and acoustic live happily ever after.
