This review is from: 28 Days Later (Audio CD)
If you've not watched the film, then this OST will hopefully be enjoyable yet quite dark.
For those who have watched the film - it evokes all the emotions you felt during the film. In fact, this is a much more intimate experience. You close your eyes and visualise events from the film whilst surrounded by the music which intoxicates and heightens the emotional journey.
This might seem a bit whimsical, but it's true. You become a character in the whole 28 Days Later tapestry by listening to this. Some songs nearly bring tears to your eyes, others make the heart race (especially if you've seen 28 Weeks Later as well, and listen to track 18 [In The House - In A Heartbeat ]) whereas some of the tracks, such as Grandaddy's AM180 feel like a light release (you can almost feel the rush as you ride the shopping trolley round the supermarket like in the film).
In a nutshell - if you haven't seen either film then this is a good soundtrack, if you have seen 28 Days Later then this is a fantastic Soundtrack. It's only when you listen to a score after watching a film - that you realise how big a part it plays in building up your emotional response to what is happening on screen.
