Review

In keeping with the dark, baroque feel of Tarsem's surreal thriller The Cell, composer Howard Shore crafts a heavy, droning score that mixes Middle Eastern, industrial and symphonic elements. While many of these pieces -- such as "Tide Pool," "FBI Pathologist," and "Stargher King" -- work well in the film, removed from that context they become oppressive. "Sing a Song of Sixpence," "Valentine," "Catherine's World," and other quieter excerpts are not only more evocative, but easier to listen to as separate works. Though Shore's music for The Cell works much better as incidental music for the film, it's still a well-crafted and ambitious album that hardcore soundtrack fans may appreciate. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
