Dont let the dreamy picture of Ryan Gosling sway you, this is pure soundtrack loveliness. Scored by Cliff Martinez whose first job was composing for Pee Wee’s Playhouse but might be better known for drumming for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Captain Beefheart, The Dickies, Lydia Lunch and The Weirdos. This is his second project with Nicolas Winding Refns (Drive) and hes Steven Soderbergh’s composer of choice, from ‘Sex, Lies and Videotape’ through ‘Solaris’ and ‘Contagion’. This was composed with help from Gregory Tripi, Mac Quayle and M83’s Anthony Gonzalez (Oblivion ST). This is full of edge of your seat cinematic moments but there are some Southeast Asian inspired pop tracks with actor Vithaya Pansringarm’s ballad on ‘Can’t Forget’ and Actress Ratha Phongam on ‘Falling in Love’ and ‘Youre my Dream’. Also some very cool elements on Track ‘Bride of Chang’ and ‘Wanna Fight’. Its all so amazing, its hard to pick a favorite!!
