The best thing I've heard in a long time!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Can it be that an original score for a movie is the best CD I've purchased in a long time? Absolutely! With their score for "High Art," Shudder To Think has created a beautiful, minimalist sound languishing in subtle textures of jazz, funk, and country... At times the music seems completely raw, completely pure, completely gorgeous. This CD will make you heady, I am in love with it! Check out tracks like "Cocoa Butter," "Mom's Mercedes," "She Gives Tone," "Last Lines," and "She Might Be Waking Up" - which plays over the end credits of the film - to see what I mean! And if you haven't seen the film yet, do try to check it out! Ally Sheedy is remarkable in it."
Ones Of Those Rare Perfect Albums
(5 out of 5 stars)
"First off, if you want to know what STT usually sounds like don't buy this album, if you want to know what they should sound like, buy this album for every single CD player you own. Anyone who truely knows and appreciates intelligent music will like or understand this album. To tell the truth I don't like STT, I discovered them when I saw "High Art" and I thought that this was their native sound and bought this album and some others, and this is the only one that doesn't make me wish that you could return CD's after opening them. I really hope the response to this experiment somehow influences them to produce more albums like this. Don't worry about the "only" review below that gave this album 1 star, that reviewer is obviously a STT fan, everything should be rated based on what it tries to be and not what it usually is. I am rating this based on it being well though out music and you won't ever see any other reviews from me for their other albums, that just wouldn't be fair!"
Subtle, viceral and intoxicating

"Sexy, trancey and lazy, Shudder to Think's soundtrack for High Art, like the film itself, trancends Hollywood stereotypes with its atmospheric, heady approach. Swimming in ambient influences and jazzy textures, at first glance it's a perfect background album. But with repeated listenings, High Art proves to be a layered, hazy sonic masterpiece."
