My album of the year for 2001. I thought the film was outstanding, capturing Selby's horrific but humanitarian worldview and adding revolutionary editing techniques. But the star of the movie was the soundtrack. I was shocked to hear Clint Mansell was behind it. To me he was always head goon in PWEI. His additions to the Pi soundtrack stood up well to his more revered trackmates but this is miles ahead of anything he has ever been involved with. The use of the Kronos Quartet is inspired and as ever they play brilliantly and are superbly produced to fit Mansell's own
I love the use of strings, breakbeats and electonica. Of course, The film's structure leads to the OSTs symphonic, coherent structure. It's divided into three sections with memorable, recurring motifs. The clangs introducing the next section are thrilling.
The music is being used everywhere from the Lord of the Rings trailer to almost every documentary on TV, so even if you haven't seen the movie, it should seem familiar.
The music is dark, at time grating, but there is a underlying calm about it. It starts all beats, love interludes, and cool posing bits. By the second movement the feeling of unease has subtlety set in and the opening part of "summer" is my highlight of the album. The third movement is terrifying and very raw but it resolves into an almost catatonic final piece.
It's very ambitious, brilliantly realised and a must have. Buy it whatever the cost.

I saw "Requiem" last night and I'm still recovering. I don't know if I'd ever watch the film again (I'm not sure I could), but the music stood out from the start, no mean feat in an exceptional flick such as this. This album is probably not for everyone, but it's swelling chamber music mixed with brooding, threatening trip-hop beats complement the film perfectly. As to the music itself, it is utterly brilliant.

Having scored Darren Aronofsky's first movie 'Pi', ex-Pop Will Eat Itself stalwart Clint Mansell has returned for the director's second. Whereas the 'Pi' OST was full-on techno-industrial horror, this score is much more orchestral, mixing samples (including fragments of Mansell's favourite requiems), breakbeats and the Kronos Quartet, who add a steely, savage melancholy to the music. Spread over 33 tracks, divided into three overtures (Summer, Autumn, Winter), the music coheres into one bleak and devastating whole, finally fading into the desolate sounds of waves crashing on the shore, gulls wheeling and crying, and distant fairground noise, all of which gradually fades into emptiness. This is a truly brilliant soundtrack, strongly recommended.

I immediately purchased this soundtrack the day after seeing the film. As soon as I heard the music for the opening credits I remember saying to myself, "I'm getting this soundtrack tomorrow." And I did, and since then I have lost track of the number of times I have listened to it.
Composed by Clint Mansell, with the Kronos Quartet and their great violin playing and such, "Requiem for a Dream" is an outstanding score that really gets into your head. It's a score full of dread, sorrow, pain, sadness, fear and paranoia. It has an industrial quality mixed with haunting violins to enhance it even more. (Imagine music by Trent Reznor with violins added to the mix.) A lot of the tracks are short and some are repetitive, but I had no problem with that. Yes, it might've been nice to hear some of the tracks extended, but I really like the overall layout of the tracks and how they appear in the order as the do in the movie.
Although the entire album is amazing, my favourite tracks are as follows: summer overture, ghosts of things to come, hope overture, tense, cleaning apartment, marion barfs, supermarket sweep, sara goldfarb has left the building, winter overture, southern hospitality, ghosts of future lost, meltdown, and lux aeterna. As good as the entire album is, the overtures really steal the show. (Especially "summer overture.")
Of course you'll most likely appreciate it more if you have indeed seen the film, but I can see people who haven't seen the movie enjoying this well-composed soundtrack as well. It's really great music, and you'll never look at music scores in the same way ever again. "Requiem for a Dream" definitely gets added to my list of favourite scores. In fact, this may become my overall favourite. Only time will tell. All I can say is that I am loving every bit of it right now, and I hope that Clint Mansell does more haunting scores like this one. Don't let this remarkable score pass you by. You'll regret it if you do.

Brilliant, amazing, sublime, fantastic. take your pick they all apply. Clint mansell and the kronos quartet have outdone themselves. Its so good that despite being from a low key movie this sound track is one of the most recognisable peices of music composed in the last 20 years. OK this is inpart to the reqiuem for a tower recording but credit to the composers.

Of course the much-heard Requiem theme is absolutely brilliant, and this soundtrack centres largely upon that theme. It combines the wonderful ringing of the string quartet with electronic beats and mellower moments and this creates quite a unique soundtrack. It's highly recommended! In my opinion, it could have branched out a bit more. I ADORE the main theme of course but I think more variations on it would have been good - so much could be done with it and sometimes I felt the tracks didn't go far enough to expand on the original thematic content, but it's still a great CD.
