8/10 Jack 25th June 2015

Like the film itself, Cave's music is desolate and unforgiving, a bleak and dour musical depiction of a bleak and dour world. His score is mainly string based, with textures here and there for woodwinds, piano and, oddly, a tinkling celesta-type instrument that occasionally creeps into the mix, giving the score a child-like feeling. The majority of the score is thematically limited, and is instead content to present a series of ambient, almost droning orchestral textures, although there are one or two cues that stand out.
