This score fits the film like a glove, which is why it was nominated for an Oscar last year. However, by itself it tends to get repetitious and monotonous. I'm not saying that I don't like this score because I do think it's really great. The music consists of full orchestra, 5 pianos, and wordless vocals by Charlotte Church, which adds to the complexity of the score. The music is not an easy listen, especially the first time because there is so much going on. "A Kaleidoscope of Mathematics" is one of my favorite tracks with awesome piano rhythms and a repeating 3 note vocal motif played over a full orchestra. This material is reprised in "Creating 'Governing Dynamics'", "Cracking the Russian Codes", and "Closing Credits". After the fifth track, the music shifts to the dark and ominous side, since Nash and others are realizing what is happening to him. "Nash Descends into Parcher's World" contains low and ominous strings, along with dense piano chords, which is what most of the music consists of from here on out as in "The Car Chase", "Real or Imagined", and "Alicia Discovers Nash's Dark World" to name a few. Slightly brightening things up is a love theme between Nash and his wife, Alicia. This is not a gorgeous love theme as you might expect, but more of a somber theme with a slight sense of light to it. It is fully orchestral with strings carrying the load as in "First Drop-Off, First Kiss", "Of One Heart, Of One Mind", "Saying Goodbye to Those You So Love", and "The Prize of One's Life...The Prize of One's Mind". This theme forms the melody of the Charlotte Church song, "All Love Can Be". As usual, there is over 70 minutes of music featured, which in this case is way too long. It gets repetitious at times, but don't let that keep you from purchasing this.
