Buy it... if you seek a competent, effective suspense score that balances its extremely minimalistic portions with enough elevated style in its later cues to be recommended.

Avoid it... if only David Arnold's full orchestral bombast or hip urban rhythms alone are what you're looking for in a single score from the composer.

Arnold
Arnold
Enough: (David Arnold) In the 2002 domestic conflict film Enough, Jennifer Lopez plays the role of "Slim" (ironic, given all of the talk at the time about Lopez having her rear end artificially slimmed down), a working class waitress whose life becomes seemingly perfect when she marries a rich contractor and moves into the comfortable suburbs. Then, of course, the contractor becomes an abusive wacko, the wife runs away, the husband and his henchmen pursue her, and she has to save herself and her child by beefing up and training for the inevitable chance to kick in his face. It's the kind of redemptive story with enough cynical revenge built into its attitude to appeal to jaded American audiences. The plot offers some of the same dramatic and suspenseful elements that you could readily expect from director Michael Apted, whose collaborations with several top composers had already tallied to quite an impressive list (including James Horner, Danny Elfman, John Barry, and Maurice Jarre, among others). He chose to reunite with David Arnold for Enough, another assignment that allowed the young British composer to break out of his type-cast 1990's sound of wild, orchestral bombast. In his post-2000 scores, Arnold was becoming less and less of the composer that fans fell in love with in that honeymoon period. Casual collectors of Arnold's works will immediately recognize that this is not Independence Day territory, and the style of music you get with this package is far from Arnold's early works (but not as far as Changing Lanes, though). Given the need for a suspense score that makes you jump every time a person rounds a corner, Arnold drops both the orchestral style of ID4 and Stargate and the rhythmic style of Shaft and Baby Boy for this endeavor. He does employ an orchestra for the project, but the majority of the duties is performed by Arnold's synthesized keyboarding and drum loop sampling, this time at a much slower, less hip, and deliberate pace. A fair amount of sound design is employed to maintain a suspenseful soundscape, though Arnold fans will recognize most of the sounds as being familiar to his other works. It's not spectacular listening, which is often the case for any composer's work in this genre, but Arnold offers enough impressive material hidden in the murky atmosphere of Enough to make it a hesitant recommendation.
