4.0 out of 5 stars Abstract soundtrack matches the movie perfectly, 17 May 2014
This review is from: Under The Skin - Ost (Audio CD)
Recently I saw “Under The Skin” in the theater (more on that later) and I made a mental note to myself to check out the soundtrack. The movie score is courtesy of British musician Mica Levi (a/k/a Micachu).

“Under the Skin: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” (12 tracks; 47 min.) starts with the creepy “Creation”, which plays as the movie opens and we get introduced to the two aliens. “Lips To Void” is an epic 7 min. slow-burner of abstract strings. After a couple of short intermezzos (“Andrew Void” and “Meat to Maths”), we get another epic track, the 7 min. “Drift”, which makes us feel as if we are adrift in deep, deep space. “Lonely Void” is musically the companion piece of “Andrew Void”, with similar leidmotifs. “Bedroom” and “Love” is really two sides of the same medal, and one of the few ‘safe’/non-experimental pieces on here, as the character played by Scarlett Johansson tries the domestic life. “Alien Loop” plays over the end titles of the movie. In all this is one fantastic soundtrack, very abstract, which matches the movie perfectly. If you are familiar with Micachu’s music, this soundtrack may be a surprise but in the end is as experimental as is her ‘regular’ music.

A few words as to the film: I didn’t really know what exactly to expect, but I can assure you that it far surpassed all expectations I had going in. This turns out to be an original, off-center, science-fiction movie that is as creepy as it is mesmerizing. And Scarlett Johansson's performance as the alien will blow you away.

Bottom line: “Under The Skin”, both the soundtrack and the film, is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
