I really enjoyed listening to the soundtrack for "All is Lost". As one would imagine, the music in a film about isolation is incredibly important - music plays a more significant role in the story given the absence of dialogue.
It's interesting to hear vocalizations and whistling in "Virginia's Dream" [Track 3] and "Dance of Lillies" [Track 7] - it adds a unique quality to the music. I believe I am also hearing the sound of water in the music mix, which is nice. "The Infinite Bleed" [Track 4] and "The Invisible Man" [Track 5] are both good examples of how the music symbolizes what the main character is going through emotionally and the natural elements that he is up against. It's amazing how the use of a choir can simultaneously add both a sense of desperation and a sense of hope.
The album ends with an original song, "Amen", with Alexander Ebert providing the vocals.
