I am not the least bit surprised to see words like "haunting" and "aching" in the other reviews here. Desplat's score is the music of the lonely and of the dreamers. It's musical and shies away from being manipulative and bombastic like most of today's film music...it compliments the film yet is highly listenable on its own.
IF YOU TREASURE MELODY AND CRISP, CLEAN ORCHESTRATION, YOU CANNOT DO MUCH BETTER. I APPLAUD THE FILM'S DIRECTOR, DAVID FINCHER, FOR LETTING HIS VOICE AND VISION STAND EQUALLY WITH THOSE OF MR. DESPLAT.
Lovely orchestration and beautifully played, particularly the harp solos. The last track is one of the album's highlights.
The second disc is worth listening to for the film's source cues. Some fun stuff, but nothing earth-shattering. I give it four our five for this reason. It would have been more interesting to put more of Alexandre Desplat's score on the second disc!
