Composer Clint Mansell made his impact as a soundtrack composer known with his production of the Pi soundtrack.On that disc, the former vocalist for UK group Pop Will Eat Itself melded an abstract 20th-century classical sensibility to electronica with great (and eerie) results.On Requiem for a Dream--the follow-up film from Pi director Darren Aronofsky--Mansell repeats his magic.Here, teamed with the Kronos Quartet--one of the world's foremost (and most progressive) string quartets--Mansell fuses big-beat, ambient, and driving chamber music.The result is a mesmerising aural complement to an already mesmerising film.Dark, unpredictable, and thoroughly engrossing.--Jason Verlinde* Genre: Soundtracks & Scores

As befitting the style and themes of Darren Aronofsky's hugely impressive movie, it's wilfully repetitive and scouringly abrasive, Mansell using almost cheap sounding synth-sounds to offset the haunting beauty of the Kronos Quartet's strings and, I guess, remind us drugs are bad or something.
It's often an ugly soundtrack, and can get a LITTLE too over-familiar even on the first listen. But it's not made to be easy-listening, and as soundtracks go it's unusual, striking, and very dark.
