4.0 out of 5 stars PATTON DELIVERS ANOTHER FINE SCORE 15 April 2013
By nin/ja77 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
If there is one thing to expect with any Mike Patton release it is expect the unexpected, yes people will show up at his various gigs whether it be with Tomahawk, Fantomas or his Mondo Cane project and expect Patton to belt out Faith No More standards such as "Epic", "Midlife Crisis" and "Ashes To Ashes", of course each Patton project is unique and no two never intertwine. Recently Patton has turned his hand to scoring movies with much success whether it be the 100 miles an hour score for "Crank High Voltage" or the more string based score for "The Solitude Of Prime Numbers" and his latest score which is for "The Place Beyond The Pines" falls into the latter's category.

If anything his latest score is his darkest yet, once again most of the tracks are short and clocks at just in over a half an hour in length. "Family Trees" has a dark eerie feel to it as it opens with operatic vocals and has a Fantomas feel to its structure. "Forest of Conscience" starts out tame enough before becoming hauntingly dramatic at the 36 second mark, this one is meant for listening to in the dark to give the listener a feel of unease! "The Snow Angel" is a lovely piano piece of music with some good effects thrown in around the track. "Handsome Luke" is the perfect dramatic finale for Patton's score as it features background noises and a big thumping sound to bring it to a climax.

As well as Patton's score the album comes the album comes with four other pieces of music that are used in the movie but not scored by Patton including Bon Iver performing "The Wolves". It is really Patton's score that is the stand out though as it is dark and melodic. If you were a fan of Patton's work on "The Solitude Of Prime Numbers" as well as "A Perfect Place" you will enjoy "The Place Beyond The Pines".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Place Beyond the Pines 8 April 2013
Format:MP3 Download
There's a fine line between familiarity and understanding. None know this better than fans of Mike Patton, whose work lends a sense of incredulity regardless of the projects of which he's a part. Best known for having been a frontman of the band Faith No More, considered by many to be the progenitor of the rap metal (or nu-metal) subgenre, Patton's continued and furthermore developed his craft in niche-market bands like Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, and most recently the Native American-leaning Tomahawk, never reluctant to vary his instrumental interests or zany vocal savvy. A genius to some and a pure nutcase to others, Patton's prolific nature and incredible talent is impossible to deny. But a rare occurrence, even for Patton's catalog, is the scoring of a film, for which The Place Beyond the Pines writer/director Derek Cianfrance hired him in 2012. A longtime fan of Patton's, Cianfrance had always hoped he'd had a chance to work with the musical visionary, and capitalized upon it to score the film he'd written after 2010's Blue Valentine.

Not knowing what to expect is perhaps the best quality of Mike Patton's music. Be it psychotic vocal tendencies, mixed musicianship, or uncharacteristic structure, Patton's execution always thrusts forth confusion along with an easily identifiable recognition of buried genius, and his score for The Place Beyond the Pines is no exception. Patton is only responsible for half of the album, however, whereas the latter half is filled with no less effective songs from artists originating hundreds of years into the past.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brooding 16 April 2013
By Jon Broxton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Place Beyond the Pines is a crime drama directed by Derek Cianfrance and starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta. Set in Schenectady, New York, over a 20-year period, the film is a riveting drama about fathers and sons, and the ramifications that the actions of one generation can have on the next. Gosling stars as motorcycle daredevil Luke Glanton, who turns to a life of crime robbing banks in order to provide for his baby son, Jason, and the mother, Romina (Mendes), who accepts Luke's help only reluctantly. Luke's increasing desperation brings him into contact with Avery Cross (Cooper), a Schenectady cop with a family history of running for political office, who is dealing with a shaky marriage to his wife Jennifer (Byrne) and a young son named AJ, pressure from his own father, and his own discovery of corruption among his colleagues. The film takes some unexpected twists and turns in its second half - which I won't reveal here - suffice to say that Cianfrance's measured direction and languid pacing allows the film to develop into a slow-burning familial drama that is both hypnotic and engrossing, especially as the true depth of the generational secrets are revealed.

The music for The Place Beyond the Pines is by composer Mike Patton, who is still best known in the music world as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More in the 1990s, but whose musical experimentations have taken him to writing, producing and performing as a multi-instrumentalist across numerous genres and with dozens of collaborators. In the film music world, Patton made his debut writing music for the action movie sequel Crank: High Voltage in 2009, and he also wrote the score for the Italian-language drama La Solitudine dei Numeri Primi in 2010. The Place Beyond the Pines is his third feature film, and if the strength of this score is anything to go by, he may well have added another significant string to his already tightly-pulled musical bow.

But first, a word of warning to "conventional" score fans; The Place Beyond the Pines is not a conventional score. Patton's music is a combination of electronic tones, electric and acoustic guitar accents, and a sampled choir - as far as I can tell there are no live orchestral instrumental in play in the score at all. If you dislike any score music that doesn't make use of a traditional orchestral complement, give this one a miss, because it won't appeal to your sensibilities at all. For those whose tastes extend into the more unusual, however, The Place Beyond the Pines is worth exploring, as Patton certainly manages to do some interesting things with such a self-limiting palette.

Thematically, there is no real recurring elements which can be pointed to as a "main theme" or recurring melodic identity; the cue "The Snow Angel", which features a lonely-sounding piano motif and languid accompanying chords plays just once on the soundtrack, but features prominently in the film's trailer and re-appears several times in the film itself, usually as an accompaniment to a tracking shot following a forlorn bike rider winding his way through a lonely road thickly lines with trees.

Instead, Patton is more concerned with textures and moods, creating a sense of loneliness and general despondency through the music which matches the pervading tone of the film; in The Place Beyond the Pines, no-one is ever really happy, and the past weighs down heavily on everyone. Patton's score drifts hypnotically from one set piece to the next, alternating between light and dark, adding layers of gloom to the increasingly desperate central characters.

The highlights are certainly the cues where the chorus comes into play - the oppressively pretty opening track "Schenectady", for example, more than insinuates that something is not right in the city for which the film is named, before moving on through the combination of voices and twinkling guitars of "Beyond the Pines" and the unusual "Coniferae", which has a slightly skewed electric guitar riff and other processed effects. The conclusive "Handsome Luke" is a little more disturbing than most of its predecessors, making use of hard-edged industrial textures, a bigger percussion section, and brutally explosive, almost Goldenthal-esque sound design elements to capture the intensity of the film's finale.

Several songs and classical pieces round off Milan's album presentation. The dreamy rendition of Burt Bacharach's "Please Stay" by Liverpudlian band The Cryin' Shames from 1961 matches to mood of the rest of the score. The new recording of Italian composer Gregorio Allegri's 17th century liturgical chant "Miserere Mei" by Vladimir Ivanoff and the Osnabrück Youth Choir is haunting and moving, as is the spellbinding performance of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt's minimalist 1977 classical composition "Fratres", reminding the listener of why it has inspired similar textural experiments by film composers ranging from James Horner to James Newton Howard. There's even an equally mesmerizing cue from Ennio Morricone's 1969 score for the film Cuore di Mamma entitled "Ninna Nanna Per Adulteri", before the roughneck tones of indie folk rock band Bon Iver bring the album to a close with "The Wolves - Act I and II".

I can't quite explain why I enjoyed the score for The Place Beyond the Pines as much as I did, because it's not really the type of music I usually go for. It might be something to do with the way it gives the film itself an appropriately overwhelming mood of impending tragedy, or Patton's intelligent way of arranging his collages of sounds into fascinating musical effects. Whatever the reason is, I found The Place Beyond the Pines to be an oddly affecting, unusually fascinating score which veers significantly from the mainstream.
