I rarely buy a soundtrack before seeing a film, but I make the exception when it is Nick Cave or a Cave/Ellis collaboration on the basis that the quality will always be there.
This album is no exception. It is a gentle, moving and atmospheric collection of compositions, a few with vocal refrain, but the majority are instrumental pieces.
The soundtrack is driven mainly by piano and that 'trademark' mournful violin, making this a genuinely soulful and rewarding listen.
I shall now watch the film (which Cave Scripted) and see if it lives up to the soundtrack.
