I'm a fan of Edward Shearmur.. in all his projects (even in movies where I balk at his decision to score the film) I come away impressed with the music he provides.

I will give Christian some credit, this score isn't Hannibal or From Hell... its much much more subdued... Christian also hit the nail with his higher rating of the score for the film than on the album.

HOWEVER, Shearmur successfully puts an interesting sound into the film that I have never been a fan of. I dont find southern blues very appealing but somehow I like listening to shearmur's score. There are quite a few underscore tracks but the ominous mood Shearmur writes from the beginning makes picking this worthy of a listen.

The twang Christian speaks about is well done and well adapted to a thriller type movie. The movie is well done (a little confusing in parts) and the score definitely aids the movie.

Fans of Shearmur (or thriller type scores) should pick this up. It's worth it. On the first listen, it wont sound like much. But watch the movie and listen to the album a couple of times after. You will like this score.
