Electronica artists are increasingly in demand as film scorers. Overall this is good news, and this heavily instrumental music fits especially well with action or sci-fi movies (cf. Pi). Since Plunkett & Macleane is set in the 18th century, choosing Massive Attack associate Craig Armstrong was a bit of an odd choice-one that's mostly paid off. Here Armstrong mixes up Carl Orff-style pomp, string-laden trip-hop, and a somber ambience reminiscent of late 1980s Goth. And despite Lewis Parker's inept (and incongruous) rapping, a cover of Talking Heads' "Houses in Motion" provides a soulful break from the heavy-duty atmospherics that make up most of this CD. We're not talking Miklós Rósza here, but this definitely is an encouraging piece of work. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

"I am still wondering why this guy is not a little bit more famous
His mix of very well orchestrated synthetic sounds with Gregorian like choirs are simply so relaxing.
If you are scared of flying, buy it and listen to it on your next trip, it is better than Prozac :-)"

"ok I gave this 5 stars because of those fabulous tracks such as "the ball" and the hanging one and the escape. They really are a fabulours mix of classical and contemporary music, but where did the other tracks go? The rest of the soundtrack is just loads of dark dingy music that really isnt worth listening too, and yet when you watch the film again there's a handful of songs that arent on there! why not?"
