If you've seen the movie and liked it, you'll love the soundtrack....if you haven't seen the movie you'll still like the soundtrack.
Elisabeth Coco
I was drawn by the unique use of the sound of a typewriter as part of the musical theme.

Well, it's so good to know, that once the great composers, such as John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith, Maurice Jarre, and so on, will be gone, the film music lovers won't be left with the void of silence. Dario Marianelli is one of the greatest hopes of film music today. His masterful Oscar-nominated score for Pride and Prejudice drew attention on him right away, and we are not dissapointed in him this time either. Marianelli's music for the beautiful romantic drama Atonement starring Keira Knightley and James MacAwoy, and directed by Joe Wwright(who directed P&P, as his brilliant first feature film) is nothing less than great. His themes are sweeping, and fluent, like a buquet of floating emotions. I particularly liked the use of an extraordinary percussionlike sound, a circa 1935-typewriter, which is, no dobt, a unique choice of the composer. Altogether I can state without regret, that Dario Marianelli's own musical style and presence in the world of modern film music is firm as a rock, and his Gloden Globe-nominated score for Atonement can aspire easily for a well deserved Academy Award for best original score in 2008.

Dario Marianelli is becoming a composer of such high quality, that it is pure listening joy to hear the composer of "Pride and Prejudice" now EXCEED that masterful work with his sweeping romantically lush soundtrack to ATONEMENT.To have the talent of French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet playing throughout a superior film is one thing,but to let the music simply stand alone for pure listening pleasure is the hallmark IMO of the superior film soundtrack.This is only one of two soundtracks that I feel worthy this year to purchase.Marianelli is heavy in the string department.His music puts a certain rhythm to the film and this swiftly paced soundtrack emulating typing and hurried footsteps is simply exciting.It is so easy to remember the film when I hear the soundtrack,but if I had heard the soundtrack first, then I WOULD have made a point to see the film.All in all,Marianelli is my man to which John Williams,Hans Zimmer,Howard Shore et al need to "pass the baton".
PAY WHAT YOU MUST! NOTE: this soundtrack WON THE GOLDEN GLOBE!!!!!!!!!

"Atonement" is hands-down the best original film score of 2007. Dario Marianelli composed intense, dramatic, passionate music to enhance this amazing movie. This CD is an incredible collection of edgy classical music. All of the tracks blend together seamlessly, and there isn't a single bad song on this album. My personal favorites include "Briony," "With My Own Eyes," and "Come Back," which incorporate clicking typewriter keys into the music for an amazing effect. Other noteworthy tracks include "Love Letters," a sweeping romantic piano melody, and "The Half Killed," which is chilling and dramatic. This is a fantastic score, and if you are a fan of the film "Atonement" or are just looking for some great music to enjoy, you should definitely purchase this CD.

Let me preface with this is my first review ever.
I watched the movie a couple of weeks ago and the first time I saw it, I sort of emotionally floated through it not exactly sure where it was going (I guess I should have read the novel first). After the denouement ending revealed the plot twist, I had to watch it again, this time understanding the symbolisms and subtle hints given in the movie. During my second viewing, I went through an entire tissue box with emotions. Especially during the scene at the Cafe. I have now watched the movie four times (yes it is that good).

Now, on to the soundtrack, I listened to the soundtrack a few days later and discovered that a large part of the emotion comes not only from the movie, but from the haunting score. If you have seen the movie, don't be surprised if you uncontrollably start tearing-up while listening to several of the songs. It is so hypnotic that it will stop you from what you are doing and visually pull you back to the movie (almost like in the film "Somewhere in Time"). I have listened to the soundtrack at least 20-30s times already and it will probably stay in my CD player until after the Oscars. If you have not seen the movie, listening to the soundtrack will surely compel you to do so.

The musical score to "Atonement" is exactly what every person needs when they read the book! As a person who has read the book and seen the movie, the music is another flawlessly created device to further engulf the reader into the story. Naturally, pieces of this composition were disregarded during the movie, but listening to them now makes the story that much more appealing to read and watch again! Having the chance to listen to such pristine music allows an audience member to hear every device the composer can use to enforce a particular mood and provide even more detail to characters! If you loved the book and the movie, you will definitely love this album that creates a world unto its own! This is definitely worth listening to, even if you have not read the book or seen the movie!

Atonement's visuals are lavish, lush and yet have strong sense of melancholy. Dario's score is absolutely gorgeous. There are no "action cues" of timpani and trumpet bombast; instead he uses the rythmn of a typewriter and classical strings to imbue a sense of forboding. The score fits seamlessly into the movie in ways remeniscent of the Lord of the Rings Complete versions, from the repeated typewriter motif to the harmonica theme and of course the highlight of the score, Elegy for Dunkirk. If you like beautiful, innovative music in a different vein from most sweeping strings and blaring brass scores, this is one you will love.

On Atonement Soundtrack?
The music from the commercial is definitely coming from the soundstrack to "Atonement." If you are considering buying it, it's definitely worth the price! It is the same composer and if you have seen "Pride and Prejudice" starring Keira Knightly and enjoyed that music... Read More
