9/10 Mike Staff review, 11 April 2013

Good old Clint Mansell has been up to his old soundtracking tricks again, this time for Park Chan Wook’s ‘Stoker’, with this entire LP being his work with the notable exception of the brittle, wonky Knife-esque electropop of Emily Wells’s ‘Becomes The Color’ (she also collaborates with Mansell later on the disc), a spoken word ambient piece by Mia Wasikowska and an original contribution by none other than Philip Glass!

Mansell’s contributions are often centred around sparse, heartstring-tugging piano, but orchestral and electronic elements are also used to great effect, with ‘Blossoming...’ being an immediate highlight with its brooding strings and bright xylophone tinkles over a base of pulsing electronic loops. In places he takes the theatrics to approaching Jerry Goldsmith levels, but mixes in the serious-minded playfulness of people like Craig Armstrong or Johann Johannsson and the creative heartstring-tugging of Nils Frahm and Max Richter. Mansell is of course an accomplished and mercurial composer in his own right at this point so I’ll stop patronisingly dropping names; his admirers will be delighted with this new addition to his already impressive canon.
