For those who have followed the musical production of Spanish-born Alberto Iglesias, you will be surprised with his work the score he did for the film "The Constant Gardener". Famous for scoring the five most recent movies by Pedro Almodovar, Iglesias reinvented the style that made him famous, blending in sounds and instruments from Africa. The result is a soundtrack that ranks alongside 2005's great soundtracks, which made last year one of the most prolific ones for movie music.
"The Constant Gardener" is a solid body of music that serves as a great place from which director Fernando Meirelles (City of God) can launch the visual concepts that make this one of the best movies in recent times. Along with the work of Alberto Iglesias, you can spot the voice and strings of Ayub Ogaba contributing the the uplifting musical mix. Overall, this is a soundtrack not to be missed.
