Review

Eric Serra, composer of Goldeneye, comes up with the weirdest score I have ever heard for an equally weird film that I quite enjoyed. The music varies from the exotic to the romantic. The bonus track is very, very unusual, a lot of fun, but definitely out of the question for use in roleplaying.

This is a science fiction only soundtrack, both because of its subject matter and the style of music which is a mixture of orchestral and synthesised. The broad range of moods and emotions evoked by the track make it great for a broad range of applications, but mainly for description and event backgrounds.

One strange score.
