This review is from: Black Swan (Audio CD)Darren Aronofsky's regular composer, Clint Mansell, delivers a terrifying, twisted minimalist score that resembles the most extreme madness of a horror film, as we descend along with the protagonist into the flames of insanity. Mansell's sinuous lines weave and writhe around chunks of Tchaikovsky's orginal ballet score, creating a daring disassociative mood. The CD loses a star only because sometimes there is more Tchaikovsky than Mansell, but this is a minor quibble.
Bleak, haunting and brilliantly unsettling - soundtracks are rarely this good.
