As the product description states above, this score mirrors the film by being appropriately understated and nuanced. The title track is both melancholy and haunting, a feeling which runs through the entire soundtrack. Other parts have quite a bit of tension. One gets the feeling that there is always something bubbling under the suface here -- nothing is as it seems, which of course, is the intention of the film. Alexandre Desplat did a stellar job.

Desplat does what few can in "Syriana," mixing the adrenaline of a John Powell score and the extremely understated compositional style of Philip Glass. With Syriana, Desplat has proven his worth as a truly contemporary film score composer, using high quality sounds and music to not only back up a film, but to actually work with it simultaniously. Even if you haven't seen the film, Desplat's score is still a work of art to be purchased and enjoyed.
Highly reccomended for avid film score listeners.

Would I be considered a purist snob if I say I like my electronic separated from my orchestral stuff? This film score combines the two ala Hans Zimmer, et al. I can just picture the recording sessions in my head: Alexandre Desplat sitting in front of a synthesizer in a big recording studio alongside the Hollywood Studio Symphony awaiting cues from a conductor. Maybe he's positioned behind the first violins or in the front where a piano normally sits for a concerto. The engineer Charles F. kettering once said, "Where there is an open mind there will always be a frontier." Fine. I can live with that. I've listened to Ravi Shankar's Concertos for sitar and orchestra and they're works of sheer delight. I see there is a concerto for steel pan & orchestra but I have yet to acquire it. It must be interesting. Also, if I can find a symphony or concerto that uses Turkish or Greek instruments that would also be a joy. Syriana does push the envelope a bit. Not only are you getting a symphony with electronica but you also get middle eastern percussion and flute. I guess I'll enjoy this frontier for now.

Great movie! Great Soundtrack. I have always been an Ennio Morricone fan, and now I am enjoying Alexander Desplat as he creates his own sound-"track record".
