This is a must hear motion picture score, espicially if you enjoy the oriental sound. It sucessfully incorporates both traditional oriental sounds with modern. Do not overlook both the music and the film, both are amazingly underrated, you wont regret buying this.

I loved the interweaving of Chinese traditional instruments such as erhu and flute with contemporary drum loops and electronic sounds. I think this film and score are both underrated.

Carter Burwell's Corruptor score is very ambient in nature, and uses a lot of Asian-inspired sounds and instruments. The theme track presented in track 1 is carried throughout the album with elements that appear in crucial scenes. With respect to a great composer, the score has some great moments, however, some scenes have redundant sounds which are much more ambient in nature than thematic...an example of this are the percussion in some tracks which are nonstopping. This truly is a score to a movie and is particularly enjoyable to a fan of the film itself.

I recommend seeing the film and then, if you are impressed, buy this album.

BTW: The song "baby I'm so lonely..." in the movie, which many people keep asking about is by Alex To.

The Corruptor, was one of the better reviewed action films to come out in years. And the score, was surprisingly really good. At 43 minutes in length, this score, composed by Carter Burwell - manages to take you on a memorable, wild, and emotional ride. Each track, with flutes, guitar, and a nice sized orchastra - it sounds like its trying to do something different. Death Driving Through Chinatown was a crazy and fun little piece - and Funeral In Chinatown is a very emotional, and memorable track! Believe me when I say this - this cd is one of the few scores that is really worth the price you pay for it! Buckle up tight, because this score - will be stuck in your head for months and months to come!

I LOVED THE MUSIC (THE SCORE) FROM THE MOVIE AND I MUST SAY THE MUSIC CLARITY WAS GREAT BUT THE LENGTH COULD HAVE BEEN LONGER AND MORE OF A SELECTION THEN JUST THOSE FEW
