Elliot Goldenthal's score for COBB is similar to the one he would do two years later for A TIME TO KILL (1996) in that it combines dark and brooding orchestral writing with old-timey source music. In this case: a hymn, rags and honky-tonk. Very effective. Goldenthal explains in the liner notes that his theme for this score was "collision" - the collision of Cobb's precise, almost "classical" study of the game of base-ball with the fanatical intensity of his play on the field.

The composer speaks of Cobb's internal psychological "collision". He doesn't and needn't mention that of all players in the history of professional baseball, no other man's reputation has been more inextricably built upon and bound up with such brutal violence and hostility toward others as Cobb brought to the park day after day. In Cobb's case, that conflict was with not only his opposition but also his own teammates. It commenced during his rookie season and continued for the length of his career. Something about Cobb which is usually overlooked in favor of more facile explanations of his behavior and attitude is that Cobb was a very proud Southernor, a descendent of leaders of the Confederacy, in fact, who made his living in the Yankee North. Excepting perhaps those occasions when the Tigers were in St. Louis to play the Browns, Cobb felt himself constantly to be in enemy territory - even "at home" in Detroit. Wherever he went, he was taunted and razzed. Cobb was always aware of his Southern-ness - and always agitated.

Parts of the score sound like two or three different pieces being performed at once.

A great score to the movie staing T-Lee and Arli$. I listen to this movie to help me unwind while i go to sleep or study for tests in my college dorm room. Hard to find but great when you do obtain.

Thank you Cobb and Ben Affleck (just because)

I thought this was the soundtrack from the movie, starting with the song from Laura's Place. It was mostly orchestra music, dark and brooding.
