Format: Audio CD
Erstwhile Pop Will Eat Itself singer/songwriter Clint Mansell has become a much sought-after Hollywood movie composer over the years. He is of course best known as the "house" composer of Darren Aronofsky's movies, all of which he has scored, starting with "Pi" in 1998. Now comes Aronofsky's latest movie, and hence Mansell's latest soundtrack.

"Noah: Music from the Motion Picture" (23 tracks; 78 min.) starts with the brooding " In the Beginning, There Was Nothing", which sets the table for a majestic and epic orchestral film score, the likes of which we haven't heard of in a while, If you've seen the movie, you know that the orchestral score plays along virtually every minute of the 2 hr. 20 min. movie. What we get here is about half of that, nicely arranged to fit just onto a single CD. As is often the case for these soundtracks, you can almost figure out the movie's plot from just looking at the track titles ("The Spirit Of The Creator Moved Upon The Face Of The Waters", "Forty Days and Nights", etc.) but I suppose it's pretty much unavoidable. My favorite tracks from the soundtrack include "Sweet Savour", "In Sorrow Thou Shalt Bring Forth Children" and the orchestral closer "Day And Night Shall Not Cease". The soundtrack thankfully also includes Patti Smith's somber but beautiful "Mercy Is", a new song from her which plays over the movie's closing credits. (She is backed by the Kronos Quartet, incidentally.)

In all, this is quite the soundtrack, and Clint Mansell proves once again that he is a top-notch Hollywood movie composer. If you like his earlier work, or if you like epic orchestral scores in general, you cannot go wrong with this. "Noah: Music from the Motion Picture" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

This music is wonderful, and it immediately transports you into the heart-wrenching conflict that God had with man. From the opening track, the bass and cimbasso (it is like a cross between a trombone and a tuba) begin a low, rhythmic theme that feels like evil (or a snake) is creeping up on you. It is like the opening of Jaws. Then the trumpets start one of the main themes, eventually being taken over by a flute, which feels like the longing or searching of the heart for something. This track ends with a pulsing bass and bells being tolled, as if a precursor of what is to come. It is a musical poem evoking many feelings. I had not heard of Clint Mansell, an English composer, before this soundtrack came out, but I will keep an eye out for more of his music in the future. He uses very interesting instruments like the cimbasso, the mellotron, bass guitar and moog to create a very unique sound that captivates you and holds your attention. He has sectioned the tracks into four major themes: Wickedness, Innocence, Judgement, and Mercy. One of my favorite tracks is track 3, the violin plays a theme that feels like a sadness coming from God where he regrets how his creation has changed, and then you have the evil, Jaws-like theme come in and takes his creation away from Him. I love track 7, Make Thee An Ark, for it has a very meditative beginning, and about three-quarters way through a wonderful cello solo, and it ends in a moving theme and a pulse that it triumphant and strong. If you have read any of my other reviews, you know I make reference to music can be used to picture many images which is what is so wonderful about music soundtracks. In some ways for me, track 8, evokes a western feel with the way he orchestrates the guitar theme, the strings, and the vocals.Read more ›

Clint Mansell really nailed the score that this film needed and deserved. Never have I ever been filled with such a sense of impending doom as I have been while listening to this score, and that is exactly what this film needed. But this score does not simply sink to the depths of despair appropriate for a spiritual tragedy on a global scale. It also highlights the wonder and beauty of the imagery and miracles depicted. "Noah" takes us to the highest of transcendent highs on cues such as "Make Thee an Ark", elevating its simple but lush orchestral theme for Noah and his family to religious heights.
The wonder of God's merciful provision is relished in this cue, as well as the deeply emotional string driven "In Sorrow Thou Shalt Bring Forth Children". The string-work in this score is magnificent, provided by a deeply beautiful, Celtic/Appalachian texture that always borders on immense sadness even in its happiest moments. The plucking of an acoustic guitar is also prominent throughout the score, adding pleasant melodies, as well as an awesome representation of the coming floodwaters in "The Flood Waters Were Upon The Earth". "Day and Night Shall Not Cease" is an appropriately restrained, but still exultant, orchestral piece celebrating God's deliverance and covenant.
More notable than these moments of profound beauty, however, is how Mansell represents man's wickedness and God's judgement throughout the score. Never have I ever experienced a feeling of ominous dread in the same way I have while listening to this score. "In the Beginning, There Was Nothing" introduces us to the theme for man's wickedness, a loud, terrifying piece driven by churning bass strings, dark, terrible brass and clanging, jarring percussion.
