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.
