Mark Isham's score for Michael Cristofer's confused twenty-something melodrama Body Shots is something of a departure for him, relying more on propulsive rhythms than atmospheric instrumentals, although there is certainly some of that here. Clearly, that approach works for the film, since it is about young club-hoppers, but the end result is not all that compelling as an individual album because it gets a little repetitive. Isham did his job well and there are portions of the record that hold their own with his previous work, but overall, Body Shots the album is a little dull.
