8/10 Mike Staff review, 26 September 2013

Many people are waiting with bated breath to see Jon S Baird’s celluloid adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s book ‘Filth’. Will the film be filthy enough to live up to its source material? Only time will tell. The fact that ex-PWEI dude Clint Mansell is involved bodes well. We now have in the office this beautiful gatefold LP with die cut front cover and Mansell’s score to the film.

It starts...bizarrely. We’re initially treated to a queasily saccharine take on ‘Winter Wonderland’ which had our Li’l Biz rushing out to the sandwich shop. I wager you’ll instinctively skip this one after a couple of listens. Thankfully ‘DS Bruce Robertson’ instantly brings in some tasty distorted guitar and pounding drums, then there’s the pizzicato strings of ‘The Games’ before we drop into the neoclassical atmospherics I was expecting from this record, although in general they’re more punctuated with cheeky crossover bombast than I had anticipated.

Mansell’s music has a real emotional potency and expressiveness to his coolly intuitive melodies when he does take things down a notch and the variety of potent textures at his fingertips here is impressive, from blockbusting sweeping strings and timpanis to crackling guitar distortion to patient piano tinkling and Godspeed-esque build-ups. It’s an irreverent yet bold and epic score to one of the year’s most anticipated films.
