"The Insider" was an intriguing film describing the true story of Jeff Wigand and how he revealed devastating information about the tobacco company, and then how a CBS reporter named Lowell Bergman took on the fight of his career to air the story on "60 Minutes". It featured great performances by Russel Crowe and Al Pacino, and taut direction by Michael Mann, but also some very cool music too. The music added lots of tension to many scenes, although I really didn't see what the lyrics of Massive Attack's "Safe From Harm" had to do with the film's plot or theme.
However, even without the film's scenes, the music is still great. It features cool synthesizers and electronic drums for a hypnotic effect. I especially love the first track ("Tempest"), which reminds me of the scene where Russel Crowe is watching the "60 Minutes" segment while thinking of his wife and daughter. Just like the "Pure Moods" series, this music is great for listening while you read, write, draw, or study.
My only reason for the 4-star rating is that the CD cover never mentions how long the songs are, and therefore I was a little surprised to discover that "LB In Montana" and "Palladino Montage" are about 40 seconds long, while "Safe From Harm" and "Sacrifice" clock in at about 8 minutes each. But this is just a minor problem, and until a "Pure Moods IV" is made, this CD works just as well.
