Buy it... if you seek a surprisingly enjoyable ten minute tribute to Jerry Goldsmith's title theme to Basic Instinct, translated for warmer, organic instrumentation.

Avoid it... if you expect to hear anything of merit outside of those Goldsmith influences on a frightfully short album.

Domestic Disturbance: (Mark Mancina) Early in 2001, the film Domestic Disturbance was mentioned as one of Hollywood's most anticipated autumn releases. It was to be a film of an intriguingly suspenseful plot that would carry it to deep riches at the box office. Unfortunately for Paramount Pictures, two deadly blows struck down Domestic Disturbance with a resounding thud. First, the film was just plain awful, predictably playing every cliche in the sub-genre of "thrillers involving insane family members" and providing no unique perspective to this already tired equation. With John Travolta as a boatmaker whose role isn't as extensive as the movie poster would make you think, Domestic Disturbance is the typical "your ex-wife marries a wealthy creep, your troubled kid knows the guy is a murderer, but nobody believes the brat until everything gets really suspenseful" kind of flick. Secondly, it was released just before the first Muggle-treasured film about a little school named Hogwarts. Thus, Domestic Disturbance disappeared off the charts after only one week of marginal theatrical success. Also problematic was the situation regarding Jerry Goldsmith's assignment to score the film. The composer had collaborated with director Harold Becker for Malice and City Hall many years prior, though after he had begun writing material for Domestic Disturbance (the extent of which is not known), his appendix ruptured and his subsequent hospitalization precluded his further involvement with the production. Stepping in to replace him was contemporary artist Mark Mancina, who provided at least a functional score for the film. It was one of those projects that fit a very familiar scoring formula for whomever would end up composing for the story, and Mancina (who performs the bazouki, guitar, mandolin, and piano in his recording) did a decent job in producing more than what was expected.
