I love it and will listen to this CD again and again.
Melissa N.
This would be great shame because the use of music to evoke powerful emotions from the audience in this film is quite masterful.
Jon Broxton
Portions of Tchaikovsky's ballet "Swan Lake" are heard throughout the score, and it serves the music well.

An intense psycho-sexual drama which touches on a number of themes ranging from parental oppression and body dysmorphic disorder to sexual repression and the search for perfection, Black Swan is the latest film from the challenging director Darren Aronofsky, the man behind films such as Requiem For a Dream, The Fountain and The Wrestler. Natalie Portman stars in a tour-de-force performance as Nina, a young and talented ballerina in the New York City ballet, whose personal life is dominated entirely by her overbearing mother Erica (Barbara Hershey), herself a former dancer. Artistic director Thomas Leroy (Vincent Cassel) decides to promote Nina to the leading role in their new production of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, as the expense of prima ballerina Beth (Winona Ryder), but Thomas is concerned as to whether the naïve and virginal Nina has enough `dark side' to play both the White Swan and the Black Swan on stage. Into this mix comes the free-spirited and sexually adventurous Lily (Mila Kunis), a transfer from the San Francisco ballet; before long, Nina and Lily embark on a dangerous relationship with is part-friendship part-rivalry, which threatens to shatter Nina's already tenuous grasp on her sanity.

In Aronofsky's hands, the world of professional ballet never seemed more brutal. Little girls the world over dream of donning a tutu and becoming a ballerina princess, but the reality is much more demanding: backbiting understudies who would see you broken to get your part, endless hours of grueling routines, and feet which bleed from being en pointe for hours on end are par for the course for these perfectionists, so it's no wonder they start to go a little crazy.

While Clint Mansell's soundtrack for Black Swan is haunting, beautiful and just what we would expect from him (in a good way)--the "soundtrack" as this is being marketed. It is missing eight fantastic songs which I hope get released on a separate album or deluxe edition as they cannot be found anywhere else. The songs are:

Danka Jane - The Chemical Brothers
Outside the Lines - Sepalcure
The White Easton - Al Tourettes
Illicit Dreaming - Kavsrave
Electric Hands - The Chemical Brothers
The Nina Frequency - The Chemical Brothers
Dark Sygnet - Jakes

First off, I must say that I have not seen the movie "Black Swan," but I want to.

The soundtrack is simply beautiful. Portions of Tchaikovsky's ballet "Swan Lake" are heard throughout the score, and it serves the music well. Clint Mansell does not disappoint. Happiness, sadness, madness...can it get any better than this? BUY the soundtrack. My personal favourite track is "Night Of Terror," but every track is worth it. Like the swan at the end of "The Ugly Duckling," the resulting musical transformation is beautiful, spreading her wings and flying into the sunset. You'll enjoy it all, even if you haven't seen the movie.

If you've seen the movie you know how beautiful this score is. The music in this score is as haunting as Natalie Portman's performance. If you are looking for one score to purchase, it should be this one.

I am very happy to have purchased this soundtrack. The music is really beautiful, dark and haunting. I absolutely loved the movie as well; so for any fans of the movie or of Clint Mansell's previous work, you will not be disappointed by this purchase. Track 6 and Track 10 are especially my favorites. The original Swan Lake music is still very much present but it has a modern feel - Again, I am very satisfied with this purchase!

When Clint Mansell scores a Darren Aronofsky film it's usually reason to take notice. Aronofsky and Mansell are one of those director/composer collaborations that shows how important score is to a film. There is a reason that Mansell has scored every single one of Aronofsky's features. Their last outing together resulted in one of the best scores of the decade without a doubt. The Fountain is an absolute masterpiece and in my opinion Mansell's best work. If you haven't heard that score I highly urge you to check it out.

For Black Swan don't expect something similar to Mansell's previous scores. With Black Swan Mansell had to step back and take himself out of the score slightly to adopt the music of Tchaikovsky. Swan Lake was a huge part of the story (for obvious reasons) and Tchaikovsky's masterful music to that ballet had to be part of it. So what Mansell has done is infused Swan Lake into his score. I guess you can look at it by saying the "Black" in the score is Mansell and the "Swan" is Tchaikovsky. There are lots of dark undertones that have Mansell stamped all over them, but he never shies away from letting the spirit of Swan Lake take over.

The score becomes a ballet in itself if you are familiar with Mansell's style. He dances around the iconic music with his own styling and tries to bring a fresh modern approach to it while still retaining all that makes it so special. The score is delicate but always has a brooding undertone that suggests something is growing. It all lends itself to the story and to the character of Nina.

I do understand the importance of utilizing Swan Lake in this score and how it needed to take up the space that it did, but somehow while listening I was wishing for more Mansell.
