It's moving.

• Now Playing: The Gattaca Soundtrack

I strongly disagree with the reviewer. Perhaps his sensitivities have been overwhelmed by the quantity of music he has listened to. Quite a few of the songs on the soundtrack are amazing, and the rest fit well into the movie. What he finds boring, I find emotionally engaging. I am a big fan of piano and strings and perhaps that sways my opinion.

Each song reminds me instantly of the scene where it was playing in the movie. Some songs are sad and bring you into the headspace that is Eugene's plight, other's are upbeat when he fights back against the system.

For example, the theme song, "The Morrow", is elitist and sad. A perfect world, striving for ever greater perfection, despising anything imperfect, and is arguably fundamentally flawed itself. It is cold and distant, much like Uma Thurman's character.

This soundtrack captures the bleakness that is Gattaca and provides close to an hour of moving music. I suppose it either works for you or it doesn't.
