Hauntingly beautiful
Bruce Aguilar | Hollywood, CA | 08/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What can I say about this score? It moves me so deeply. When I saw the film one of the many, many things that struck me was this wonderful music. I bought it right away and listen to it often. The melodies are so haunting, lonely and melancholy that it can break my heart listening to it. My favorite track is "The Morrow" wich is repeated, in variations again and again, always slightly changing the feeling or meaning. Beautiful! I'm sorry his work isn't more recognized. But don't let that stop you from enjoying some truly moving score work here. And while you're at it check out the film too."
The way a good soundtrack SHOULD sound

"An amazing piece of art. This soundtrack is how a true movie soundtrack should be done. Gattaca is a modern-day masterpiece, chilling in its reality, encouringing in its portrayal of the human spirit. After watching the hidden threads of romance, self-determination, science fiction, social commentary, and reality weave themselves into a beautifully complex movie, I thought that the soundtrack would a welcomed compliment. To my surprise, the music has a depth all to its own. Every theme in the movie is captured in the very notes of every song, but Nyman also captured the one thing that seemed intangible about the movie: the mood. Throughout the movie, one felt this eerily intriguing mood and Nyman captured that mood better than I have ever heard. Definitely, a treat for movie lovers and music lovers alike. Scores like these will be the masterpieces of the future."

"When I saw "Gattaca" I fell in love with the music which is composed by Michael Nyman (The Piano, Carrington, Drowning By Numbers, etc.).Nyman structures the music to really feel in your soul about what you really want in life and how you have to sometime make sacrifices. The music hits you in the SOUL.This soundtrack never loses a beat throughout its entire spin. What baffles me that Nyman who has never won an oscar for scoring was totally ignored even for a nomination for this wonderful masterpiece (Gattaca)....a shame....but of course John Williams, and Bill Conti get nominated time after time for the same ole schtick.Other wonderful compositions by Nyman are also one of my favorits "The Draughtmans Contract", and "Prosperos Books".Nyman is a truly gifted composer who still has not got his due.A wonderful CD with beautiful composition."
