Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 3/4/04, p.64
3 stars out of 5 - "Greenwood's rigorously experimental but accessibly atmospheric score suggests [an instrumental] KID A and AMNESIAC...with eerie string and noisy jazz ensembles..."
Spin - 3/04, p.96

Product Description:

This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
Original score composed by Jonny Greenwood.

The varied sounds of Jonny Greenwood's score for the British documentary Bodysong will come as no surprise to hyper-attentive fans of Radiohead, whether they've devoured every interview with the multi-instrumentalist or have studied every detail of his contributions to that band. Each of these pieces was written and produced by Greenwood, with assistance from Radiohead engineer Graeme Stewart. A string quartet is present on four tracks, drums and horns factor in on two tracks filled with nervous energy, and brother/bandmate Colin Greenwood provides bass on another. Everything else -- a wide assortment of instruments, including electronics -- is handled by the composer. When separated from the film, the music remains a compelling listen. From track to track, the tempos and emotions jerk back and forth with unpredictable unease. Sounds dart as often as they drift, but there's a peculiar linearity at play that keeps the ears hanging on every note. ~ Andy Kellman
