On the soundtrack to Michael Mayer's adaptation of Michael Cunningham's (The Hours) novel, Duncan Sheik takes the sensitivity and tension of the film's plot and crafts incidental music and new songs that complement the movie well. Along with contributions from Dusty Springfield, Patti Smith, Yaz, Jefferson Airplane, a portion of Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians rounds out the excellent soundtrack. It's a well-curated soundtrack that is clearly aimed at a more mature adult contemporary-based audience, but that shouldn't preclude anyone from checking this out.
