Who is this album for?
It's for anyone who wants to relive the aural magic matching that of the onscreen images of Soderberg. If you haven't seen it, it's as good as any other score by Martinez. It takes on a new tone, but the general idea is comparable to Solaris.

Why should I buy it?
It's a grade a score, but the reasons you should throw down your hard earned dollars are the following:
"They're calling my flight"
"Move away from the table"
"Merry Christmas"
"Handshake"
"Contagion"

And the supreme masterpiece of the score: "Bat & Pig".

These are those gems that don't just enhance the onscreen action, but actually work well as isolated compositions.

All in all, you won't regret your purchase if you agreed with me at any point. This is one of those really great soundtracks that pleases everyone who saw the movie, no matter what they are looking for in a soundtrack.

Attended the film "Contagion" yesterday, and, I found the soundtrack hauntingly beautiful. The musical score is a techno-jazz for the 21st century--hypnotic, intellectual and intriguing.

Cliff Martinez has been Steven Soderbergh's go-to composer ever since the director started out. When Soderbergh made his directorial debut with Sex, Lies & Videotape it was Martinez who did the score and what would end up being one of the most significant Director/Composer pairings in Hollywood. While Soderbergh does use David Holmes for certain projects he does rely on Martinez for the heavy stuff such as Traffic, Solaris and now Contagion.

The score for Contagion is a blending of tones and ambience that creates a world of suspense. The approach immediately gives the score a sound that evokes technology and science and considering the subject matter it's appropriate. It borders on being a science fiction score rather than a thriller score, but the emotions and beats all hit. Some people may find it hard to grasp the score since it lacks a certain structure that listeners are used to. If you are familiar with Martinez's other scores than his style won't be such a shock, but for newcomers this may not be the best place to start. The score does create a distinct and unique universe for the story to be told in, and that's the biggest accomplishment here.

Contagion isn't a dynamic masterpiece so don't go into it expecting it to be. It is an extremely well crafted thriller and Martinez matches every moment with excellence in his score. If atmospheric scores aren't your thing than this may not be the score for you. However, if you want to experience incredible sonic textures that tell a story than you should dive in head first into Contagion.

The essence of this music really moved me. The saturation of the complexities of the tonal variations and rhythmic impulses set this piece of work apart. I recommend this soundtrack.
