Michael Mann is known for the exquisite style in his films, and his soundtracks. Here is another great example, following the masterful soundtrack to "Heat," of Mann showing great style not only in film composition, but musical as well. The music here by Lisa Gerrard and Pieter Bourke is brilliant, powerful, stylish and moving. The first track, "Tempest," casts it's hypnotic spell from the first note to the last. What we have here is a great use of talent with electronic music combined with orchestral. There is an intensity and suspense to the music apart from the film, which is also brilliant. "Safe From Harm" by Massive Attack is especially unique and effective. Every musical piece is done with care and brilliance. This is musical genius vibrating into life. The music here is both beautiful and dark, powerful with a certain edgyness and sadness. "The Insider" was a great movie, one of 1999's best and the one worthy of the Best Picture Oscar, and it's no wonder, considering it has this great music to back it up. I wasn't surprised at all when Gerrard and Bourke received a Golden Globe nomination for their great music here. And let's not forget the effective score contributions by Graeme Revell, especially the track "Polladino Montage." Michael Mann's work is all style and genius, both in film and soundtrack compilation. He knows what artists to get and what type of music to use. Great soundtrack, unforgettable music.
