Composed by Mike Patton (best known as lead singer of the alternative metal rock bands Mr Bungle and Faith No More].
With it's heavenly voice intro and strings, a guitar with reverb glides in and you are immediately transported to Twin Peaks land with an opening track called Schenectady. It's obviously a place where nothing much happens as the pace is slow and eerie.
Family Trees is a fractured track punctuated with high choral voices which certainly gets your attention. The deep guitar returns for Bromance another track with sinister overtones which displaces you even more. There still is no evidence of a melody here just tones until a melancholic piano is introduced.
It's almost like an experiment, no structure just notes thrown onto a magnetic stave, some clinging on repetitively in the background whilst others drop off when done with. It's curious and hypnotic and chilling.
The cue Evergreen is startling with its interweaving voices.
Powerful and confusing and challenging to listen to, I found this score unnerving and in some tracks momentarily beautiful.
