5.0 out of 5 stars Lay your head down, darling, the stars are softly shining 13 Dec 2011
By Storylover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For the magical, Glenn Close penned, Sinead O'Connor sung "Lay Your Head Down" alone, this is a wonderful soundtrack. Ms. O'Connor's vocal gifts are fresh and lovely, heartwrenchingly so, almost, in this lullaby which ends the soundtrack. What you get as you reach this magical focal point, however, is just as wonderful in its own right. Byrne has become one of my "composers to watch" with his wonderful gift for lyricism and perfect sense of tempo, propelling the music forward, never missing a chance for understated elegance. This soundtrack would have been right at home in a Merchant Ivory production, which is meant as pure praise, and gives you a bit of a touchstone for the feel of the piece. If you are looking for a well composed, sweetly Irish tinged, fully emotive soundtrack, you can't go wrong. And once more, "Lay Your Head Down" is not to be missed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Score From Brian Byrne 1 Mar 2012
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Irish composer Brian Byrne makes a high profile debut with his score to Albert Nobbs. The film revolves around a woman who disguises herself as a man in order to work and save money to one day pursue her dream. The score is very elegant and very proper if that term makes sense. The execution is delicate and effective as Byrne gently paints a portrait of a very intricate character.

The music is piano heavy with light strings. We open with the song "Lay Your Head Down", which has vocals by Sinéad O'Connor. This piece returns later in the score in instrumental form and serves as the grounding piece for Albert's character. The score is very shy and very slow at coming into full form, which mimics Albert's character. It has a touch of inspiration and it always feels like there is more underneath of what is being heard. There is a slight quirkiness to the quality of the music as well as a hint of mischief. However, the emotionally binding aspect is the sweet romantic heart of the score. Be it the romance in the film or romantic notions of Albert's dream. There is a quiet romanticism that underlays the score in a very beautiful way. The score overall is a great story told with a unique voice. Short track times hinder the flow just slightly, but that's as a listening experience. There is serious character behind the notes here and that's what appealed to me most.

Albert Nobbs isn't Byrne's first score, but it's likely the first score to bring him into a larger public eye. The score is very good and the execution is perfect. Don't expect it to grab hold of you because it's not that type of score. The music gently invites you into the world and into the character. It plays out beautifully and even though there are some weaknesses to it I found the experience delightful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful soundtrack! 18 Feb 2012
By Jennifer E. Lithgow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't rave enough about this soundtrack. . . I saw the movie, and could hardly wait to get home and order the soundtrack. It's just so delicate and beautiful, and I simply can't stop listening to it! And while the Sinead O'Connor song is okay (I know - I'm the only one on the planet who isn't head over heels in love with Sinead O'Connor!) it's the rest of the album that is blowing me away!
