Title - 'The Book of Eli' (Reprise Records)
Artist - Atticus Ross
If you are a fan of ethereal or gothic rock from the 80's and 90's, this movie score is right up your alley. The score was produced entirely by Atticus Ross, which is impressive considering this is only the second feature film that he's composed original music for exclusively.
Quiet as kept, Ross was himself was 1/2 of a rock band that both opened up for Marilyn Manson, and worked with a variety of other artists like Trent Reznor of NIN. So if you're wondering how a fledgeling movie composer hits the nail on the head composing dark music for a dystopian film, that's your answer.
Indeed, Ross' other film credits include co-writing and producing Go All the Way (Into the Twilight), the Perry Ferrell single for the hit film, Twilight, the score for the Allen Hughes vignette for the film New York, I Love You, as well as the music to the Hughes Brothers TV show 'Touching Evil'.
So, if you love ambient, electronic music, gothic music you will LOVE this soundtrack.
