Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
The original soundtrack and score for the motion picture The Book of Eli, was composed by Atticus Ross, who has worked with the Hughes Brothers on two previous occasions, as well as artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Korn, and Jane's Addiction. Despite his extensive work in television and cinema, this marks Ross' debut into feature film scoring. Ross worked with his wife, Claudia Sarne, and brother, Leopold Ross, at his home studio in Los Angeles before going to London's Abbey Road Studio to finish with an 80-piece orchestra.

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
The original soundtrack and score for the motion picture The Book of Eli, was composed by Atticus Ross, who has worked with the Hughes Brothers on two previous occasions, as well as artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Korn, and Jane's Addiction. Despite his extensive work in television and cinema, this marks Ross' debut into feature film scoring. Ross worked with his wife, Claudia Sarne, and brother, Leopold Ross, at his home studio in Los Angeles before going to London's Abbey Road Studio to finish with an 80-piece orchestra. The score contains a well balanced mixture of electronic elements, rock instrumentation and ornamentation in places, and beautiful classical elements with excellent dynamics, layered, expansive textures and effects, without once sounding overdone. Given the post-apocalyptic nature of the film, and the sonic impressions offered in its trailer, what transpires here is actually quite understated as a listening experience -- a real positive. It allows the tension in the soundtrack's own sense of narrative to develop slowly, purposefully, and effectively. The cues, whether they be adorned by strings, synths, guitars, drums, or operatic voices, are equally balanced and utilized not simply as workmanlike devices for furthering the story in the film, but to adorn a work that can be widely enjoyed apart from its cinematic counterpart.

    Nothing like this in a long time.

    Every once in awhile, a score comes along that just gets me out of the movie chair and onto B&N.com. "Book of Eli' is one such. The Vangelis 'Blade Runner' comes to mind when what to compare it to. Nothing can touch that of course, but 'Book of Eli' brings out the emotions in similar fashion. Having been pleasantly surprised by the movie itself (GO SEE IT) the music compliments the film. The fist time I heard the heavy strings on 'Panoramic', I simply got chills. Atticus Ross is very new to me, but I will follow future scores with anticipation. A unique sound like Bear McCreary. Track 14 is more of such a great thing. Wish it was longer but then I wish most of my score collection was longer.
    The picture on the front captures the feel of the movie quite well.
