Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The original Blair Witch Project, the gothic Z-budget horror film that became the 1990's most unlikely blockbuster, was so impoverished it literally didn't have a score. Its soundtrack ultimately became one of those suspicious, quickly produced "Music inspired by" collections of motley rock tracks. The inevitable sequel was well-funded, though only a fraction as financially successful. Arguably, one of the producer's wisest investments the second time around was hiring Carter Burwell to produce the music. The musician has risen to the occasion here with one of his most experimental scores, an exercise in dark atmospherics using samples of falling water and rustling wind coupled with a relentless rhythmic thrust. The effect is an eerie, all too compelling soundscape of the mysterious forest and its impending terror; nary a recognizable melody surfaces until halfway through, by then suffused in a tense stand-off between the organic and the electronic. Although subtly reminiscent of The Shining, this is Burwell at his most distinct and inventive. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars "spine-tingling score, rivals even the scariest scores" October 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Milan and Carter Burwell have given it their best shot, and they've hit the mark, just in time for halloween..."Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2". Burwell scored "The General's Daughter", "Being John Malkovich" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", a prominent composer, but with this latest venture he steers away from the trend of loud orchestra, often heard in contemporary horror films, concentrating on the innate sense of fear, like the dark woods would evoke.
Carter creates chills not by what you see and hear, but by what your imagination invents due to his music's tone, relying on melodic and harmonic development, sounds of the forest build an emotional effect by clinging to the characters relentlessly.
Opening track is a good example "ROCK WATER WIND", sounds of water hitting rock, the wind...all of this is created by percussion and drums with rhythms wildly surrounding you and engulfing your mind completely..."RAIN" is another cue, which gives you a drifting feeling, never knowing to what purpose. Even unrecognizable sounds work as motifs, they recur through the score and become familiar, blossoming darkly at the end.
Milan, is always in there trying to quench the thirst of the avid "movie-music collector", this score is simply captivating to the listener...a great addition to your ever growing collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars It may be hard to believe, but the music is amazing March 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I had no interest in the stupid film, but I picked up the CD based on Burwell's previous work with the Coen's. NOTHING he has done before could prepare you for this EXTREMELY innovative and atmospheric music. Creepy and elegant, it is far more original than the work Burwell is usually hired to crank out. He must have been given total free reign here, whereas I think he is a victim of being too versatile and professional. Sure this is a slick record, and may lack soul, but it is great music for a long drive in the woods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better than the song CD (or the film) October 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Much of the music is built from forest sounds like rocks and water which were electronically processed to create otherworldly ambiences. There is also the modern air of ancient rituals - wiccan raves. An interesting change of direction for Carter Burwell after his more traditional scores for "Being John Malkovich" and "Fargo".
