Totally stupendous and fantastically matching the movie.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was totally taken in by the beauty of the music. It is the kind that makes you float along with the movie and can hear it anytime anyday. Can't take my eyes off of you, the best and the music score accompanying Julia Roberts as she rides the horse at the end were the most breathtaking."
Decidedly unusual.

"The first thing I noticed watching Conspiracy Theory was how well the brassy, playful music fit with the equally unusual opening credits. Carter Burwell clearly eschewed a pompous thriller score for one that reflects the quirky subject matter. The resulting effort is sublimial, working in all the right places, concluding with a truly majestic, soaring finale. Remarkably, this final theme is heard only once before the ending, and only briefly. The restrained use of this trump card makes it all the more hard-hitting.Truly one of the most innovative and lovely scores in recent memory."
There is no conspiracy here, just great music

"I don't know much about Carter Burwell and his music, but this soundtrack is great. Burwell conducts a 200 plus size orchestra for this film with instruments including violins, violas, cellos, basses, flutes, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, french horns, trumpets, trombones, tubas, guitars, percussion, keyboards, and a harp. The size of the orchestra is evident in all of the tracks, for the sound is large and wall to wall. "Overture" contains the groovy theme of the film, reminding me a little bit of Chris Boardman's Payback. "Conspiracy Theory" is the other track with this groovy theme. In addition, there are several action music cues, present in "NASA Strikes!", "Brain Gravy" (I think this was served in my old high school cafeteria if i'm not mistaken), "Wheelchair Chase", "The Catcher", among others. They contain big, bold brassy sounds and running snare drums and electronic percussion keeping it moving. Not quite a 5 star score, but it comes close and i'm liking Burwell's music more and more and I think you will too."
