As the silent correspondent for WAS known as Travisfkr recently told me, if Trent Reznor wins an Oscar for his work on the Social Network soundtrack, it’s a testament to the value of 90’s music and Generation X. The fact of the matter is that for the better part of the decade, maestro Reznor became quite friendly with Atticus Ross and together, they have crafted some of the most consistent NIN music ever, and they’re not letting up.
For this soundtrack imagine the Ghosts compilation from NIN but with the severe focus of the Fragile. That’s what this soundtrack is, ghostly, electro-organic, and brooding, but also precise to a T. It’s also quite a testament to the skills that have been honed to near perfection over the career of Reznor. Every note is meticulously placed and deliberate for the sake of creating something grand and the entire album unfolds wonderfully. Whereas other NIN nails focused on musical juxtapositions, here the music is more natural in how things are pieced together, or maybe we’re just familiar with previous musical exploits.
The point is that if you want a Score that is dark, creepy, brooding, ghostly and the perfect music to sleep to if you’re a fan of HP Lovecraft or Stephen King, look no further and enjoy the nightmares. :)
