Ridley Scott and Marc Streitenfeld are a great team. Scott's film, Body of Lies, is a great alternative for those who avoid the standard, been-there-done-that James Bond spy thriller. James Bond films are great if you need to turn off your brain and drool, but Body of Lies is a wonderful alternative.
This album contains the musical score from the film. The score is wonderfully original. Streitenfeld's score captures the emotions and the overtones of the film. Moreover, the score captures the feeling of angst, betrayal, disorder, and madness which permeated the film. In other words, this musical score, like all memorable scores, is the heart of the film.
I enjoyed Streitenfeld's score for American Gangster, and I believe his score for Body of Lies surpasses the former. This score seems more diverse and more engaging. Also, this score seems more conscious and thought-out. (Listen to the score for American Gangster and you'll know what I mean.)
This is a great score for a great film; it's different and unique (like the film).
And for the record, Guns and Roses need to shut up; they suck.
