5.0 out of 5 stars hauntingly evocative 17 Feb 2005
By marty mcfly VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
this wonderful gem of an album was bought for me by a friend after we had been to see the australian film 'somersault' at the open air theatre on bondi beach. sitting there under the stars i found the music the perfect accompaniment to a wonderful little film full of sadness and discovery. i think its rare that a wonderful movie attracts an equally unique soundtrack, and only 'the mission' has the same position in my personal movie and music collections.
anyway, its a soundtrack so much of the music is atmospheric and its pretty slow going stuff with lots of instrumental pieces, probably brought to life by the film, but losing nothing in repeated listenings. the beautiful vocal on the track 'heidi's theme' is almost enough to make the tingling shiver down your spine erupt into a tear.
im off to find more stuff by decoder ring, i recommend you check them out too before they are all everyone is talking about...

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack / Not A Soundtrack 26 Dec 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
When they first received their rough cut of Somersault, scenes of the snow-covered hills around Jindabyne, (near the ski resorts of Thredbo and Perisher in Australia's Snowy Mountains), thrilled Decoder Ring with the prospects of the music they could match to the images. In quick order they received an AFI (Australian Film Institute) award for Best Original Score, and a Best Original Song award from the Screen Music Awards, for the film's title track.

For the larger part of its running time, Somersault is very minimal in execution, beautifully capturing the vulnerability and youthful naivety of the film's star, Heidi, and Decoder Ring have captured that youthful, edgy naivety beautifully. Despite the title, one of the most exquisitely lovely tracks here is `Rough Sex', others including `Alpine Way' and the Eno-esque `Electrocution (Hydro mix).

It's sometimes tempting to program out Lenka Kripac's two guest vocal numbers, (`Somersault' and `Music Box'), for their intrusion on the filmic nature of the other tracks, but really, it's all quite, quite lovely.

Instrumental bands are booming in Australia at the moment, with Sydney acts such as Decoder Ring and Prop, plus Melbourne's fabulous Silver Ray, and while they may all have built their success on the past glories of bands such as the Dirty Three and the Necks, there's no denying that the modern crop are really coming up with the goods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just about perfect 5 May 2009
By Christopher Missick - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If you are like me and enjoy a musical curtain while you work or study to close off all the other thoughts that distract or lead to procrastination, then you need to pick this one up. A soothing and contemplative soundtrack, to a contemplative and disturbing film (which is still highly recommended), then celebrate with a somersault and purchase this Decoder Ring record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous!!!! 22 April 2005
By TRUDY ~ - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This ablum is sweetly and hauntingly beautiful. Saw the movie, loved it, and realised when I was watching it that the score was adding SO MUCH to the movie. Brought the soundtrack right away and was blown away as I am new to Decoder Ring. I have listened to this cd hundreds of times since then and cannot wait to get their upcoming new album. For lovers of Sigur Ros, Radiohead, this album is a must-have. I could even hear traces of Hans Zimmer in places. The music is delicate, evocative, moody, poignant and takes listener on emotional and reflective trip. Amazing stuff.
