Buy it... if you enjoy hearing rotations though rough percussive rhythms as a method of defining the heartbeat of the film.

Avoid it... if you expect to hear the development of any themes or motifs outside of the occasional references to the original 1971 Roy Budd score.

Bates
Get Carter: (Tyler Bates) Remakes are seldom half the quality of the original films that inspire them, and director Stephen T. Kay's 2000 update of the 1971 cult classic Get Carter is among the worst. Michael Caine returns, but not in the title role; instead, a miscast Sylvester Stallone is Jack Carter, walking the streets of Seattle in search of those who killed his brother. It's a standard revenge flick, but Kay's attempt to dramatize the story more than necessary led to a film that largely disconnected with audiences. The original film's score came early in Roy Budd's scoring career, and was a dramatic, but stylish minimalist effort that matched the menacingly mechanical nature of Caine's movements. The 2000 remake marked the most significant mainstream film at the time for Tyler Bates, who was obviously well informed about the Budd score before he embarked on his own interpretation of the concept. Bates makes several connections between Budd's work and his own, including the incorporation of the harpsichord effect that was so memorable in the 1971 recording. Also referenced is some of the thematic material for Carter, though Bates revises the sound for the 21st Century to such an extent that many people won't notice. Bates goes overboard to match the unrelentingly sharp edge of the story, offering tones that suggest the basic emotions of anger, revenge, and madness. Because the film also strays further into dramatic subplots, Bates likewise attempts to address the major secondary characters not with motifs, but rather with breaks in the strikingly forceful attitude that allow for organic elements to make themselves heard. Most of the score functions as an extension of the frequent song placements in the film, with like-minded cues serving as transitional pieces in between the alternative rock songs that can be heard on the film's other album release. Dominated by percussion elements, the score is essentially a series of looped rhythms that are accentuated where needed to coincide with the action on the screen.
