Elektra [Original Motion Picture Score]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Elektra, the film based on the Marvel comic, follows a heroine who's been called "a lethal synthesis of grace and power" -- a description that fits the music on this soundtrack just as readily. Evanescence's "Breathe No More," previously only available as a live track, is a perfect example of that dichotomy, blending, as it does, Amy Lee's seething vocals and her bandmates' raging rhythmic retorts. On a similar note, Taking Back Sunday's "Your Own Disaster" captures the sort of vivid isolation that's attributed to the character Jennifer Garner portrays on the big screen, combining steely resolve and inner tumult with energy to spare. Those tracks are among the best of ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Elektra, the film based on the Marvel comic, follows a heroine who's been called "a lethal synthesis of grace and power" -- a description that fits the music on this soundtrack just as readily. Evanescence's "Breathe No More," previously only available as a live track, is a perfect example of that dichotomy, blending, as it does, Amy Lee's seething vocals and her bandmates' raging rhythmic retorts. On a similar note, Taking Back Sunday's "Your Own Disaster" captures the sort of vivid isolation that's attributed to the character Jennifer Garner portrays on the big screen, combining steely resolve and inner tumult with energy to spare. Those tracks are among the best of the passel of entirely unreleased songs on the soundtrack, but there are plenty of other interesting inclusions, such as a remix of Finger Eleven's "Thousand Mile Wish" -- presented here in a version that's eerier and more atmospheric than the original -- and Jet's "Hey Kids," which ranks as the set's most unabashedly upbeat track. All in all, Elektra is fun, fast, and furious, and you need not have cracked the comic in order to enjoy it.
All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Composer Christopher Beck (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) expands on his small-screen sound with the big-budget Jennifer Garner action film Elektra. Beck capably fuses Asian-inspired percussion, atmospheric programming and tense keyboard motifs into a serviceable score that is as effortless as it is forgettable. Emotional moments are carried by the usual low sustained note with soft piano, and action sequences are appropriately choppy and tense with the occasional slide into goth rock territory -- much like Underworld or X-Files soundtracks. Fans of video game music will find Elektra familiar and well-executed, but the overall atmosphere is lost without any kind of visual accompaniment, resulting in an experience that, when left to its own devices, goes in one ear and out the other.

    Good Music

    While it doesn't posess the power of the actual soundtrack, its music is powerful in its own right. If you are a fan of symphony with a little mix of Japanese in there too, this CD is for you.
