Clint Mansell evokes the beauty, the brutality, the love and the longing of this wonderful new movie by Duncan Jones. I was drawn to this movie and went to see on the promise of the soundtrack alone! You must see it. You must hear it! Genius.

I recently saw the film MOON, and it is by far one of the greatest science fiction pictures out there. Up there with 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Alien/Aliens, Blade Runner, Silent Running and Outland. Everything about this film, the great directing, writing, production design, costume design, editing, the non-cgi visual effects, the absolutely amazing performence from Sam Rockwell (oscar nomination please)...but my favourite aspect, was this soundtrack.

Clint Mansell is the top composer working in the business today, though so unrecognized by so many. Hans Zimmer, James Horner, John Williams and James Newton Howard seem to get all the attention, however Clint Mansell is masterful, with his great soundtrack to Requiem for a Dream and the absolutely mindblowing beautifully scored soundtrack for The Fountain, now with Moon as a part of his legacy, Mansell should soon be on his way to an Oscar nomination too, after getting snubbed out of one for The Fountain.

This is an amazing soundtrack...GET IT!

The test of all good music is whether it stays with you. Whether it's simple or complex, traditional or experimental, if it pops into your mind at odd moments you know you have a good piece on your hands. I keep hearing this soundtrack, not only in the film (which I recently watched again and remembered how excellent it really was), but also when it was used for incidental music on an excellent story podcast. I finally broke down and bought it, and I think it is going to be a fixture on my turntable.

Moon [Blu-ray] [2009] [Region Free], as you probably know, was a film about Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell), a lonely man on a lunar mining station with nothing but a robot called Gerty, his plants, a surprisingly detailed model of his home town, and the endless, beautiful, barren moonscape for company. The grandeur of the stars and the grey deserts he traverses in his moon rover, are spellbinding, and are given a sense of drama and purpose by Clint Mansell's soundtrack. It's a haunting mix of ambient atmospherics, that wouldn't be out of place on Brian Eno's Music for Airports, and more traditional melodies for piano and strings. It has a structure and direction to it that makes it fascinating, and makes great use of silences, whether to create a sense of space as echoes fade away or by abruptly stopping instruments, like radio signals suddenly cut off. In the same way that the

Seen the film twice and loved the soundtrack so much I ordered the CD as soon as it was available. The music creates an eerie atmosphere that works perfectly in the film but is also a fantastic piece of music in its own right.

Gosh. This is a rare thing indeed - a science fiction film (y'know, like a proper one!) and an accompanying soundtrack that successfully enhances the film rather than just sitting alongside it.

I must admit to having given up on finding great new Sci-Fi scores in film, having recently become in awe of Bear McCreary's talent in his wonderful final season 4 score for Battlestar Galactica: Season Four , so to find this felt like a real gem.

Clint Mansell's score is predictably sparse but surprisingly robust on repeated listens. It compliments the film perfectly and if you dig a little deeper, begins to throw up subtle changes in the few recognisable cues that emerge from the movie.

Special mention goes to the track 'Memories...' - it is a wonderfully affecting piece of music, containing nowt much but an ethereal piano, before a Cello moves in by way of a final refrain. My favourite track on the album.

In short, if you're a fan of the scores that accompany the classics that 'Moon' was unashamedly trying to emulate, you'll love this.

I saw this film soon after it was released in theatres and although I was impressed by the movie, it was the soundtrack that grabbed my attention as much as as the story. I had never heard of Clive Mansell before, but loved his themes so much I bought the soundtrack. I NEVER buy soundtracks, so this was a notable exception for me. Admittedly not every theme appeals to me, but the haunting piano led theme that serves as the signature theme to teh soundtrack and the film is truly moving in the way that great classical music is moving. Not very uplifting, as the subject matter required a darker and sombre feel, but a very rewarding listen, especially if you like soundtracks. Perhaps not for classical lovers, but I defy any true classical fan not to love the signature theme. I bought it on vinyl, a nice 180g slice of plastic in a thick gatefold sleeve, and now a nice addition to my ever increasing collection, and a nice oddity too.
