Not scary? It scared the hell out of me! The "monster-esque" sounds in "A Sprig of Red Grapes" is horrifying, and the beginning of track 7 i think, with the lonely voice which is contorted and twisted...I was scared -less! But, of course, add on top of those two things, Mr. Jones' dark gloomy string work, and well, the scariest score i've ever heard emerges. The theme is just plain awesome in its simplicity and darkness. The whole score is incredible without ever becoming too complicated. It screams 1888, and It puts me back to that time whenever I listen. I can just imagine a time when everyone is scared because a maniac is killing erm...people...for our young readers and no one has a faint idea of who it is. Its a great score, everyone should have a copy regardless of if they like film music or not!
(Hey, its kinda funny, I said "hell" and "-less" but I wouldn't say "prostitute" odd)
