This is easily on of the most underrated scores of the year. "Taken" is a masterpiece, both on film AND on this album. The music is reminiscent of Powell's "Bourne" scores and Eric Serra's "Bulletproof Monk" score. Top notch!

Some great tracks that go well with a movie that constantly keeps you on your toes. I really like the 'electronic' feel of many of the tracks.

Format: Audio CD
A xenophobic and downright nasty action thriller which somehow became a box office success, Taken is directed by Pierre Morel and stars Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, a former spy with `special skills', who is forced out of retirement when his daughter Kim (Maggie Grace) is kidnapped by a sex trafficking gang in Paris. Once in Europe, Mills runs around a lot and fights his way through the French underworld trying to save his daughter, encountering Albanian crime syndicates and evil Arab billionaires and delivering plenty of high octane energy and pithy-one liners, but it all leaves a nasty taste in the mouth, especially with its blatant "all foreigners are evil" undertone.

The score for Taken is by French composer Nathaniel Mechaly, who has been working in his native France for several years, but who has never had an international breakthrough until now. A lot of Mechaly's score is quite soft and understated; the "Opening" and the subsequent "Permission to Go to Paris" are little more than piano chords augmented by a soft string wash, while later cues such as "To the Airport", replace the piano with a gentle and attractive acoustic guitar. As the score progresses, however, Mechaly introduces a stronger, more urgent electronic element into his music, with energetic synthesized pulses and almost dance music-style rhythms. Cues such as "Pursuit at Roissy", "Pursuit at the Construction Site", "Escape from St. Clair" and "Pursuit by the Seine" have the same kind of vibe as John Powell's Bourne scores, with urgent percussive string writing and electronic beats driving the action along.
