Another masterpiece by Mr Johannsson,
This review is from: And in the Endless.. (Audio CD)I'm a very keen admirer of Johann Johannssons work and this addition is very welcome indeed.
Firstly it should be pointed out that this is the soundtrack to the film Varmints which is only 24 minutes long. The film can be downloaded from the iTunes site as its not generally available on DVD. The book of the film is available on Amazon. It's not suprising then that this CD is short.
The CD is a collection of sweeping 'classical' pieces with the very clever use of sounds, soprano voice, choir and organ. Even without the pictures, the music is emotionally stirring and its no suprise that it reflects the emotions in the film. The soundtrack has won awards and many of the more pleasant reviews on imdb reflect the connection between the music and the film.
If you are completely new to Johann Johannson's work then I would recommend Englaborn but this is eminently accessible and engaging music. Well worth listening to.
