I think this is one of the most accomplished scores of Thomas Newman.There are a
high number of interesting and unusual orchestral solutions contained by it.There are jazz tracks,excellent string work with harmonica,percussion,piano and brasses to illustrate the chase scenes,menacing,omenous and frightening cues to reflect to the dangers lurking near to Mike Sullivan and his son,and to the fears of them.There are some tracks that are melodic,elegiac and relaxing at the same time to illustrate Sullivan family' s need for peace,and dramatic cues to reflect to the crimes and the mental and physical suffering of the Sullivan family.There are slightly mysterious cues to illustrate the doubtfulness of the Sullivan family .There is even a track in which Newman uses a choir.Uillean pipes with guitars increase the dramatic potential of certain tracks.The album only weakness is that it is as long as 70 minutes 25 seconds,but still,rather good and a sure buy if you want to hear interesting,enjoyable and unusual orchestral solutions and motifs.
