Silva Screen Records LTD presents "TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY" [Soundtrack], the score is by the celebrated composer Alberto Iglesias ... Oscar Nominated for Original Score The Constant Gardener (2005) and Original Score The Kite Runner (2007) -- and the list could go on, very accomplished film score composer.

Mesmerizing undertones of jazz, with light piano fingering gives this an almost dreamlike film sequence. One reviewer mentions central elements of Jerry Goldsmith (The Russia House), which is one of my favorite scores from Maestro Goldsmith. But, listen to the strings and counter melodies that extrude into the bleak air of the night.

Iglesias is right on with each track ... one can only hope this will receive some recognition for a mention in the award department.

This is one of those soundtracks/scores that you can play and listen with your conscious or subconscious, while reading a book or just under winding after a hard day.

Superb, but wonderful track missing Jan. 1 2012
By Rico Boothman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a sublime, madly atmospheric soundtrack to one of the best films of 2011. But Julio Iglesias's wonderful La Mer, which accompanies the film's final minutes, is absent. What gives?

A Quiet Little Masterpiece From Iglesias Dec 22 2011
By Kaya Savas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Alberto Iglesias is one of the best composers working today and like Alexandre Desplat he is due for an Oscar real soon. What makes Iglesias so stunning is his ability to adapt to whatever the story requires. His score for The Skin I Live In is an absolute masterpiece and is almost guaranteed to get at least an Oscar nomination. For Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy he crafts a brooding jazzy concoction that reminds me of Ennio Morriocne's old suspense scores. It's quiet, it's focused and it's brilliant. Iglesias hits another out of the park and is constantly reminding us how score should function in a film.

We open with a track titled "George Smiley". The music has a film noire feel and immediately instills Iglesias' trademark style. The score feels like it's from the 70's, it feels like it's from Europe, it feels classic and just has a nostalgic feel. Parts of it remind me of his score to The Dancer Upstairs as the music is similar in tone. There is always an underlaying layer of suspicion. Certain moments feel like character portraits as they subtly evoke small emotions. When tension needs to rise he has no problem getting the music to where it needs to be. Strings begin to pulsate to craft elegant tension if that makes any sense. It's a very unique score to the film, and that makes it difficult to write about. I just feel like every moment of the score holds me close as it whispers a story in my ear. It's a masterful experience.

With a filmography that includes The Kite Runner, The Dancer Upstairs, Che, The Skin I Live In, The Constant Gardener and many more it's an amazement he hasn't won an Oscar yet. This year has proven to be Iglesias' strongest year. His music is becoming more structured and thematic. That in turn translates into big emotions. Tinker Tailor Solider Spy is one of those scores that builds its own identity and quietly instills itself upon the listener. This score is a quiet little masterpiece that needs to be heard.

Terrific! March 14 2013
By A. G. Bell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Soundtracks often "make" a film. In this case, Alberto Iglesias' work adds a touch just subtle enough to really stand out. From the melancholy of a London street to the breaking of an intelligence man, there's just enough here to do the job, no more, no less.

The recording quality is wonderful, with a nice wide dynamic range, and mastering that lets you really hear the music for all it's worth, even if you're just listening with earbuds.

For those who've complained that the closing piece "Le Mar" as sung by Julio isn't on here, remember this is *Alberto's* score--and then go snag a copy of "En El Olympia", which has the song you're after. You'll probably like them both.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Alberto Iglesias June 28 2013
By David Mccorkle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a very interesting work by Mr. Iglesias. It is very somber and sometimes quiet, yet very well played. This is not the soundtrack, as some of the songs done by other artists is not here. I do recommend this if you enjoy music from movies. But remember, it is not for all.

A Must See. Sept. 14 2012
By MHarris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A beautifully crafted film. Quite a slow mover but I liked this. Amazing plot, outstanding acting and a pleasure to watch due to the muted hues and beautiful art direction. This movie is pure class. I was very taken by the soundtrack too. Moody and atmospheric - some pieces quite jazzy. I recommend it when driving long distances.
