Review

The soundtrack for Danish crime thriller Drive, composed and compiled by ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers and Captain Beefheart drummer Cliff Martinez (Sex, Lies Videotape, Solaris), skillfully blends icy, Krautrock-inspired electronica with retro-'80s synth pop. Opening with “Nightcall,” a moody, scene-chewing slab of Air and Röyksopp-induced electro-pop from French DJ Vincent Belorgay (aka Kavinsky), Drive rolls along on the strength of Martinez's spooky, Blade Runner-esque score, and cruises along effortlessly on a foundation of clock-like percussion, swooning synths worthy of an M83 album, and an independent spirit that tips its hat to nostalgia while careening over the guardrail into the future. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
