The Soundtrack to The Fountain is an intense, emotional but rewarding experience, but be warned! this is not the run of the mill, orchestral style that seems to permeate movies these days, in an all too predictable way. This is more a case of The kronos Quartet meets Mogwai in a dark alley for a good dust-up. If you are familiar with God Speed You Black Emperor/ A Silver Mnt Zion's anthemic post rock orchestrations for guitar and strings you will no doubt love whats on offer here.

Clint Mansell lets his inspirations show thru with a few nods to Phillip Glass and the afore mentioned GSYBE. A brooding emotional sound bulds on repeated(in a good way) piano refrains and strings to represent the various story lines present in the film, that gradually build into a stirring, emotional and intense finale on "Death is the road to Awe" The album is worth it just for this track alone.

Format: Audio CD
You can tell a lot about a movie by its soundtrack -- comedies get cute pop tunes, action gets harder stuff, and drama has somber compositions.

But the exquisite genre-bender "Fountain" was graced with a sweeping, celestial collection of songs, which were a collaboration between composer Clint Mansell's group, the Kronos Quartet, and the Scottish experimental group Mogwai. It's filled with the sorrow of death, the joy of love, and all the feeling that music can muster.

It opens with a gentle piano solo, which trickles into a web of slow, ominous strings. "The Last Man" opens the album on a somber note, and moves down the emotional scale from jagged unhappiness to a gentle, slightly achy sound. As it blossoms out into a rising violin solo, your heart will be breaking.

Then it dips into more uncomfortable turf -- the eerie "Holy Dread," with its hints of chants, dark drums and rattly noises, and the shimmering swirling guitars of "Tree of Life." But then Mansell and Mogwai move back into the orchestral mood -- sweeping, shimmering melodies with a sort of spacey feel, and dark-edged neoclassical instrumentals.

It rises to a heart-pounding climax in "Death is the Road To Awe," with the music getting louder and more intense, and picking up tempo... before exploding into what sounds like an angelic rock song. The final song is very different in tone -- very quiet, mellow and almost happy.

Well, Darren Aronofsky's movie is full of death, war, sorrow, love, space travel, and immortality. Somehow it's not too surprising that a normal soundtrack wouldn't do, and that a mixture of neoclassical instrumentals and space-rock are needed to really accentuate the beauty on the screen.

Very rarely do films scores so perfectly match the film they are intended for and this score for the excellent film 'The Fountain' is one of those rare occasions. It's rare for even part of a film score to move me, but this one managed it time and time again.

Absolutely wonderful in all ways possible. Even if you couldn't get to grips with the film then at least give the score a try. It's well worth it.

While I liked the Darren Aronofsky film quite a lot - and its certainly not as bad as most people would like you to believe - there is simply no denying that Clint Mansell's soundtrack is the best thing in it. As with his previous collaboration with Aronofsky for Requiem for a Dream, this is outstanding, managing to complement the film without distracting from the stunning visuals. Masterful.

This is a fantastic soundtrack by Clint Mansell. It marries perfectly with the happenings in the film, reflecting and enhancing them, drawing you in to another world and helping to make viewing it an intense, expansive experience. The music has elements of repetition (both within and between tracks), sadness, foreboding and ultimately resolution, but is beautiful too and it really gets inside your mind. It reminds me of Philip Glass more than any other composer. It differs from Glass quite a bit - in my opinion it's less repetitive and dark - but my guess is that if you don't like Philip Glass's music, it is likely that you won't like this either.

Watch the film if you get the chance and you will see how the soundtrack enhances it, but this music can very much stand on its own too. You don't need to have seen the film to enjoy it and I actually think it outshines the (excellent) film. One of the very best film soundtracks and highly recommended, though will not be to everyone's taste.

I'm probably biased as I already love Mansell's stuff (especially Moon OST) but this is quite fantastic stuff. Brilliantly slow building pieces that convey awe and wonder. The combination of the Kronos Q and Mogwai is genius. Essential.
