...and it was very good. The Score worked well inside it too, fitting the subject matter and especially the realistic, documentary-way the film was made. Outside of the film, however, it isnt really rewarding and only either for Beltramis-Enthusiasts or Fans of Atonal Music.
The only brighter spot it the Scores only theme, a wandering, thoughtful seven-note progression on guitar heard three or four times in the film and on album. Its most pronounced appearance, in the Cue 'The Way I am' makes a fine addition to any Beltrami-Collection. Otherwise, there isnt much to gain from this Album.

Music as Composed for the film: ***
Music as Heard on Album: *
Overall: **
