BBC Review

It’s been said elsewhere in the press that the second soundtrack from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to accompany a David Fincher film is rather less impressive than the pair’s multi-award-winning score for The Social Network. But such critique stemmed not from hearing this three-disc, 173-minute offering exclusive of its parent picture; instead from experiencing it as last year’s American version of the 2009 Swedish hit – itself an adaptation of the late Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novel, published posthumously in 2005 – rolled at the cinema. What these arrangements might subjectively lack when matched to on-screen action is rendered moot as its electronic throbs, washes of eerie noise and ghostly drones take hold. At such a length it’s nearly impossible to remain focused on throughout; instead, it paints whatever else distracts the attentions several shades of grey.

Within a track like An Itch lurks myriad catchy electronic motifs, but each is half-choked by an overpowering atmosphere of dread which well matches the oppression apparent in the movie adaptation(s). These films are uncomfortable watches, the camera lingering on scenes of tremendous physical and psychological terror for those few moments too long. Reznor and Ross complement these visceral scenes with music of disquieting design, many of these 39 compositions (two of which are ‘traditional’ pop arrangements – a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song opening disc one, and How to Destroy Angels’ reworking of Bryan Ferry’s Is Your Love Strong Enough bringing the third disc to a close) creeping about the senses like an evil mist, shrouding hooks that dig deep and linger long.

In the sense that many a moment here is memorable, despite the testing run-time, …Dragon Tattoo must be declared a success. Away from the Karen O-voiced opener, a brilliantly rousing rendering of a rock canon classic breathed new life by these musicians’ unique approach – imagine it given an industrial once-over in the early 1980s, but then set to double-speed for its end-product presentation – a number of instrumentals hit enough bittersweet spots to hang around the grey matter. Amongst these are Cut Into Pieces (twitchy, haunted electro); Hidden in Snow (fevered Far-Eastern pulsations); A Thousand Details (Nine Inch Nails-echoing clangour); We Could Wait Forever (Omar Souleyman’s Syrian ‘folk’ as reworked by first-album-period Third Eye Foundation); and The Sound of Forgetting (one of the softer tracks, and really quite beautiful).

With this set lasting longer than the film itself, there’s no doubting that efficient editing would have produced a more manageable product for mainstream ears. Both Ross and Reznor receive A grades for effort, and commendations for their execution of this most-malevolent of soundtracks; but …Dragon Tattoo is such an exhausting listen that one might well switch to the music from Arthur Christmas before the fine, Ferry-penned finale comes into view.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross follow up last years Oscar and Golden globe winning score for the "The Social Network" with the score for David Fincher's version of Stieg Larsson's Novel "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". Just like with "The Social Network" Fincher asked Reznor and Ross to provide the score for his latest Film and it proves a wise choice as Reznor and Ross have crafted nearly 3 hours of dark, melodic and haunting music. This score bares no resemblance to their previous work with Fincher. This is after all "The Feel Bad Movie of Christmas" and it's fair to say that Reznor and Ross have crafted a perfect feel for the Film that itself is bleak and cold(It features a lot of snow) in presentation.

Just listening to "She Reminds Me Of You" with it's cold atmospheric feel including the eerie sound of chimes as you can hear a the sound of a guitar droning in the distance, it sets up the rest of the score well. Trent Reznor's wife Mariqueen Maandig Reznor provides Vocal effects on a number of the tracks and is probably best used on "While Waiting" which is as much sinister sounding as it is soothing sounding. "The Seconds Drag" even includes a ticking clock used to good effect. A lot of the time the music creeps up on you such as in "People Lie All The Time" which seems to use a synthesizer sound left over from the eighties before adding a beautiful sounding piano. Even "Pinned and Mounted" starts off tame before changing to add some big sounding beats".

Anybody thinking that Reznor was not going to include some big industrial guitars played over heavy beats can rest assured as on tracks like "A Thousand Details", "Great Bird Of Prey" and "The Heretics" which features a screaming guitar midway through.
