Product Description

Original Soundtrack by Mercury Award winner/nominee Jon Hopkins. 'How I Live Now' is the big-screen adaptation of the award-winning young-adult novel by Meg Rosoff, directed by acclaimed Academy-Award winning director Kevin Macdonald (One Day In September, Marley, The Last King of Scotland) and starring Academy Award nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones, Hanna) as Daisy. London based Jon Hopkins, a classically trained pianist who has collaborated with Coldplay and Brian Eno amongst others, received a Ivor Novello nomination for his score for the Sci-Fi classic, 'Monsters' and he also co-wrote with Brian the music for 'The Lovely Bones'. He also scored the Andrew Douglas/Bryan Singer feature film 'You Want Me to Kill Him'. 'How I Live Now' features the single 'Garden's Heart' by Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) & Jon Hopkins, a Jon Hopkins Remix of Daughter's 'Home' and Amanda Palmer's 'Do It With A Rockstar'

While I am listening to this album I have to keep in mind that it is a soundtrack and some tracks are contradictory to my overall listening experience.
I do agree with the first reviewer about tracks 1 and 9. I would add track 16 as well - all three, for me, are difficult to integrate as a whole piece of work. Otherwise musical ideas of Jon Hopkins translate very well without the movie narrative.

My favourite tracks are 2. 3. 7. 14. and 15. The Hawk is hauntingly beautiful.

The first track is just awful, but oh my word, the rest is amazing. THE most beautiful and moving music, can't stop listening to it on my headphones. Just wish some of the tracks were much longer. Daughter's 'Home' is ace, but spoils the flow a bit for me.

When I found out this was being made into a movie I was so excited but didn't think much about what the score would be like as I don't usually like war theamed soundtracks but once I seen it and heard this hauntingly beautiful music I had to buy it. Well done Jon Hopkins. The remixed daughter track is really good to. It also includes one of my favourite female artists Bat for Lashes to. Can't fault it.
