So far, I think its by far their best score. I am listening to the stream on npr.

Trent's paino work on one of the first songs (I dont know) was incredibly beautiful.




Ok, its "just like you."

Sorry, I know it was on the sampler. i have been out of the loop as of late. Busy..

Thanks. I tried that link already. No pre-order option. Amazon or ITunes will let me access it straight to my phone.

It's new Trent music. I want to hear it as soon as possible, without resorting to a shitty stream rip. Hence my testiness on the issue.

If you preorder it from nin.com, you get it on the day in FLAC, how is that not the best option?

Will it download straight to my smartphone if I buy it from the site? It's fine if I just want to sit there and listen to it on my computer, but I'm a man on the move most days.

Also, isn't buying it from the site supporting Modlife? Yea, not happening.

I'm listening to it right now and.... HOLY FUCK!!! I think this is better than both of their soundtracks. I like some of the guitars they put in as well as the orchestration of it. Some of it is extremely moving and dark.

Nice stuff so far. On first listen it is quite distinctive from both TSN and TGWTDT. I agree with most people that it seems to be located somewhere between the two. Of course this comes from a first, incomplete listen in the office, but my first impression is positive. Some tracks certainly stand out (as in either kickass or haunting), but it's a cool soundtrack overall.

I hope not, it's probably a rip from Spotify, anyway it says "webdl" so it's a rip

It didn't on the one I grabbed.

I'm at Zurich Film Festival. My screening is in 8 hours but I have a friend (who's also a film critic) attending to the press screening as I am writing. I'll post my impressions later today (but I won't spoil I promise). Also there isn't much to add since I'm sure almost everyone on this message board has already listened to the score :)

If you have an Android phone you shouldn't have a problem downloading it to your phone. Only problem would be if you download it in anything other than mp3, then you'll have to either find an app that plays other file types (not sure if such an app exists, would be cool though) or just deal with the mp3 files and go all HQ when you're at a computer.

Prettybrokenspiral

Yea, I'm stuck with an iPhone 5 until January. Hence my desire for MP3 right now. I can get the FLAC files for my computer anytime; I usually do once they're widely available.

I'm just going to do like that one guy suggested and download it day of release. Something to look forward to :)

Rarely if ever do platforms like Modlife allow you to direct-download MP3s, you'll probably get a temporary link to a single ZIP file with the files on release day.

PS there is an iOS app, called CanOpener, which handles FLAC very well!

I doubt there'll be any, TGWTDT's were announced in advance - and they sold AWFULLY. There's still many left don't forget. And TSN had none, the three options were CD/Vinyl/BD-A

I think they still have TGWTDT deluxe in stock. TBH I think they sold badly because they were bad value. You got a lot less than the top-whack Ghosts DE cost for the same bux.

Goes without saying almost but no physical stock in local HMV today.

Usually they're right (and often that's to the annoyance of artists who didn't want a date out). And Modlife run by the artist's time, so, Trent time.

No kidding, with amazon prime it came out to less than half the cost of buying through modlife, of course the autorip option may not be available while waiting for the end of November. On the other hand, late autumn is usually a good time imo to listen to a lot of ambient soundtrack-y stuff. I haven't heard the full album yet, just the sampler. Waiting to hear new TR music is a futile effort though, who am i kidding......

I think there was some kerfuffle over the proposed budget for the sequel to Dragon Tattoo as well as the Steve Jobs biopic that never got off the ground. It could be just as well that Gone Girl is with another studio not affiliated with Sony.

Just saw the film, and the score is even more chilling sounding within context of the film. Much like I suspected Technically, Missing is used for the story's most important montage sequence, and it's pretty fucking awesome.

The movie itself was great and EXTREMELY close to the book itself, so whatever you loved or didn't like about the book, will be the exact same things you like or don't like about the movie.

For the most part everything was used, I think. Some tracks were used for merely seconds, but quite a few were used in full. Honestly, one of the most effective moments in the film soundtrack wise, is the scene that Consummation/ the hidden track is used in. Definitely even more unsettling and cringeworthy than the "Floor Buffer" track/scene from Dragon Tattoo. I can't get that scene out of my head, honestly.

From reading the book i can kinda guess what scene consummation is used in. Is the track "Just Like You" used? The end to that track is some of the most beautiful stuff trent has ever put out imo.

Yep Consummation is the scene you're thinking about and it's 3x as graphic as it was in the book.

Also, yes Just Like You is used really early on and the first half is used predominantly while the second half is background piano music for a dinner scene at an Amazing Amy book release party.

Probably cause there's not a whole lot to say beyond what he was already talking about. He also doesn't talk about Gone Girl all that much when you think about it. He talks about using an orchestra and the mood they wanted to set, but the whole interview seemed to be more about their process when doing a score.

It's always interesting to hear about what kind of new gear Trent has been playing with. That instrument he was describing sounds intriguing.

Yes, the term 'SOON' is just too important when it comes to any release from the NIN camp.

Next time we all should record those preview streams that are all over the place instead of a pre-order with no benefit at all.

let me add that some tracks were slightly different from the streaming on npr, someone will have to find the FYC CDs.
I enjoyed the movie, although a bit let down by the mix but that was likely due to the fact that I was sitting at the back of the cinema.
Also I'm not sure that all tracks were used.

I didn't listen to the stream on NPR, so I am 5 tracks in listening to it on Spotify for the first time. I gotta say I find it very refreshing. It's nice to hear a new sound from TR+AR, not that I have anything against what they usually do. I feel like they were falling into a pattern, but this is new take for them. Me gusta so far.

09-30-2014, 10:06 AM
downloaded this morning and started listening on the train. i'm about halfway through and i'm loving it.

my first thought was "trent and atticus have been listening to a lot of clint mansell's scores...they should all collaborate on something..." followed by "they've also been listening to a lot of boards of canada...and rachel's."

so i'm hearing a lot of influence from groups/artists that i like a lot, as well as T&A's usual style (but still a forward progression of it). like slave2thewage said, all the analog pads are gorgeous and lush, it's really nice to hear that kind of sound balanced with the live orchestration.

do you think that the four minute silence in "at risk" will be pressed into the vinyl...or will we get a locked groove?

In regards to somebody before hinting at Trent/Atticus/Clint Mansell collaborating on a score, initially this sounds like a really great and fun idea doesn't it? Especially given all parties are good friends. But then i thought about how Mansell essentially is tied to his computer programs for scoring and isn't a musician per say/doesn't really play any instruments (myself and Leviathant and maybe a few others from on here were at his NYC gig a couple of years ago and watched him play merely seconds of piano with his two index fingers while essentially being huddled behind his laptop and having an orchestra play his music). Maybe everything I just said might lead to trouble with the three in the studio. Or maybe Clint could take more of an Atticus role in the audio engineering cave. Just some food for thought.

Halfway through my first listen. In terms of atmospherics, this is one of the creepier things TR & AR have done. I love how things come and build up and out at you from the background. Almost feels like the Quake and TGWTDT OSTs had a kid who encapsulated everything wonderful about his parents (and whose cousin was The Fragile - damn I loved "Technically, Missing"). But that doesn't do it justice.

I think this is going to be my favorite T&A score. :D

man, i don't understand this. you know how trent and fincher have been telling us all this stuff about how they were going for this artificial-muzak-spa-make-you-feel-like-everything's-ok sound? the second half of Just Like You is exactly that. seems to be getting a lot of love around here, but to me it's just some aimless benign tinkling. the first thing i thought of when i heard it is the piano playing that Zach Galifianakis does in some of his stand-up. i mean, i guess it's kind of pretty, but to me when trent and atticus want to make something pretty they really come up with some devastatingly pretty shit. i find "Background Noise" much better in that respect. definitely my favorite melody of this soundtrack.

reading my comment over, it sounds maybe a bit mean. not my intention to put down your opinions, just wanted to share mine. i think all this will work quite well in the context of the film too. hope i'm right.

(p.s., i came back to edit the spelling on Galifianakis, but i nailed it on the first try!)

I think that only saves the metadata info in the foobar internal database, and ends up "resetting" eventually.

Descriptive metadata is typically added to WAVs upon creation and cannot be easily modified.

I don't think I would like another Ghosts (more precisely, another instrumental albums that is not a soundtrack to a movie). Ghosts served its purpose back then. Trent wanted to do this album/exercise ever since With Teeth (source somewhere in the faq). With 3 soundtracks, another Ghosts wouldn't make a lot of sense. Unless Trent really wants to be creative in a way that we haven't seen before. He can do what he wants, I'll buy it.

For those who want the download now, and don't want to rip it illegally, and don't wan't to buy it twice, I guess it's an inconvenience. But otherwise I wouldn't be doing any kicking of yourself.

The &/and thing is a minor annoyance, but it does have other implications. Play counts on social sites such as last fm will be wrong unless someone manually adds a rule there to rename one to the other. Artist recommendations will break. Nobody will ever agree on which is "right"'so there will be endless flame wars on wikis, music brainz, grace note, freedb, ets, etc. If you want a laugh see the quality of grace note data for "eno Hyde" releases

So this is my first time listening to something in WAV format and the amount of richness and detail I'm hearing is incredible. Is everything this improved? Because if it is, then I've got to really stop messing with MP3s as much as possible.

As much as I look forward to seeing how all of this fits into the film, of all three scores this seems to stand the best on its own two legs as just a great collection of music separate from anything else. This sounds like the best natural progression they've made yet with scoring, and if they stay on this track then I really do hope they continue to work with Fincher even more.

Just Like You is the prettiest thing Trent's made since Still.

i listened to the score about four times in the last couple days and then saw the movie tonight. i always love it when track titles are named after lines from movies, and it was cool to line them all up with the scenes. definitely not going to be able to listen to it the same way after watching the film, which is fine, as i loved it.

Saw the movie yesterday and I have to say this is the best work Fincher ever done. As for the music, it's truly amazing. My fiancťe found it the sickest TR/AR score and I have to admit.
You have to see and hear it on big screen, go!

hahaha no. she doesn't like seeing movies at the theater (unless it's a live rifftrax event) because somehow, something always happens to spoil her time (when we saw looper, i asked the group of middle-aged people next to us to stop talking and texting, and they threatened to beat the shit out of me). she also hasn't seen a single fincher film except se7en, so i want to get her used to his style so she'll appreciate it more.

also, to be honest, we've both been transparent with each other from the beginning. we got the ugly stuff out in the open early (i've always been an open book and with my last partner being as abusive and manipulative as she was, i wanted to make sure that wasn't going to happen again). but i definitely did think "i can only imagine how different of a dynamic this movie has for people in relationships who DO keep secrets from each other."

Well the score fits the film like a glove. Isn't as imposing as TGWTDT score yet stands out better than the previous two films.

I'm bias, but it was definitely one of the highlights of the great film. The score was so powerful at one point I actually felt sick. Amazing work and their best score yet. Also, the best Fincher since Zodiac and I loved TSN and TGWTDT.

Saw it last night. Amazing. I have loved several of Fincher's other films, (but not all of them), and even though I was excited for GG, for some reason I just didn't expect it to be as good as some of his others. Very wrong. This might actually be my favorite of his, now. The whole thing was just incredibly well done. The score was perfect. Soooo good. Go see it!

Saw the movie last night and it was awesome! I have to say in the first 3rd of the movie - I kept finding myself distracted by the score because I knew it so well. Also, there's some weird sound mixing in the early memory scenes where the score overpowers the dialogue to the extent that it takes you a moment to realize that you're not supposed to actually be following the words spoken but rather just feeling a sense of the moment. It was cool hearing the titles of the tracks in the dialogue throughout the film as well. Amazing film.

Huh. I came out of it feeling quite differently. I just got home from seeing the film, which I thought was well paced, the score serving to accentuate the twists within the scenery really quite well. I wasn't really totally hot on TGWTDT's score, which was appropriately bleak for the bleak landscape of that film, and I love listening to the Social Network score while I'm working, but as a film score it was very unusual - cool, but unorthodox. I feel like the Gone Girl score is actually their best yet at scoring a film. It was very tightly wrapped into the fabric of the film. If you thought it was barely audible, there was probably an issue with the speakers at your cinema. Now, I'm not here to change your mind, GanduGains. You think the movie was a mess, and I'm just noting that you're pretty distant on the critical spectrum from where I'm sitting. Sorry it didn't work out for ya.

I'm 2/3 of the way through the book right now, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how the movie pans out because it almost feels like the score is, at points, way too dark and ominous for what I'm reading....although from all of this thread's indicators, 'Consummation' will indeed score something very unpleasant. Hell, one listen made me uncomfortable. Looking/not looking forward to that...

Giggle...yeah saw it last night and my fiance's face during that scene was priceless. I will say I was taken aback as well, as Fincher takes said scene and delivers it more than the actual book does.

I absolutely loved the film and how the score fit in.


My only peeve with the score now is that the track titles aren't original like those of TSN & TGWTDT...where as these are titled as blatant signs on the roadmap of the story.

Granted some are a tad catchy but most are quoted within the book or film...no biggie though.

GO SEE THE DAMN THING IN THEATERS!


EDIT: And I have to say, I didnt really care about Margo in the book, but I absolutely LOVED the character in the film. Carrie Coon did such a great job with Margo.

EDIT2: Back to the topic of the score, especially Consummation and Consummation (Reprise) aka the track at the end of At Risk..I just relistened to it on my iPod and originally loved it...now after seeing the way Fincher used said "Reprise" in the film, it gives me fucking goosebumps and actually makes me very uneasy.

When you see the film, you'll know what I'm talking about. Without giving any spoilers away...Fincher is such as master because he can take an action we have seen in NUMEROUS films and just make it absolutely disturbingly graphic yet somehow so damn memorable...

Just watched the movie and it was amazing. I can't get over how Consummation fit into the movie and how I will never be able to listen to that song again without just stopping whatever I may be doing while I remember everything. Also, The Way He Looks At Me on the first couple of listens had me thinking it was going to fall somewhere else in the film, but holy shit I'm glad I was wrong because the way that song worked with that scene was intense and EXACTLY the vibe I got from the song.

Consummation (Reprise) already did a good job of making me uneasy, but yes, the film took that to a new level.

The building, "pulsing" distortion on the synth starts to make me wonder about my eardrums as the volume increases to an uncomfortable level. Playing the 3 minutes of silence before the reprise helps seal the mood.

Listened to the soundtrack a couple times before seeing the movie. I've never read the book. That being said, I thought the movie was very very good. One of the few movies I have seen in recent memory that I was still thinking about the morning after seeing it.

I'll put this next part as a spoiler for those who haven't seen the movie, since song titles might give away something, but, after seeing the movie, if I had to pick a group of songs that I think captured the mood of the movie overall, it would be the following:
Spoiler:
Like Home
Technically, Missing
Consummation
Like Home (again)

It's an interview with Fincher in which the person interviewing is saying something along the lines of "Trent said this film was darker than he had expected" or "Trent called this a nasty film", and then Fincher reflected on Trent's words. Just can't find it now.

Full interview on Film Comment (http://www.filmcomment.com/entry/interview-david-fincher):

I read that Trent Reznor [who wrote the score] said this is a really, really dark movie. Do you think it is?

I think there are certain conceits in the kind of story and the storytellingÖ Well, letís put it this way, I think he read the book or part of the book and he felt kind of the way you do. This is not me, itís about Midwesterners or this writer who returns to this small town. And then when it got to the third act, as absurd as some of it is, it began to resonate with him. That was shocking to him because he thought at first that Fincherís doing a popcorn movie. He hadnít read the script so he hadnít realized that once we had pruned back, we didnít have Desiís mother and we didnít have more than an impression of Amyís parentsóthey are much more caustic in the movie because they have only two or three scenes. Their suffocating presence in her life becomes more crystalline. And I think he was expecting to see something that was more polite.

Or more National Lampoon?

You donít get much from Trent when you show him stuff. Heís cagey that way. But when he came out of the screening, he was laughing, almost giddily. And he said: ďThatís so sinister in what itís talking about. It makes me feel bad about myself.Ē I donít really want to speak for Trent because heís wildly articulate.

But I'm not sure yet what you think the tone of the movie has.

I think there were people on the crew who thought we were making Fatal Attraction. One of those Paramount thrillers of the late Eighties or early Nineties.

Itís definitely not that.

But there are these TV spots that all dance the same gig. Have you seen the trailer? Does it seem as if itís selling the proper aspect of the movie that could possibly hook people without giving anything away? One of the things it took six months to negotiate in my deal was that they couldnít use anything in the trailers of Amy past reel four. Because if you do, you ruin the movie. People go to the movies to discover things. They want to see actors as theyíve never seen them before and to see them in situations you never imagined them in because hopefully you never imagined seeing yourself in that situation. I need that sense of discovery when I look at movies.

The main thing the movie ruins is the music. Especially if you've listened to it before hand in your car or on loud speakers. Because when you see the movie, the score is NOT loud at all. It's basically a faint background noise.

Yeah that does seem strange for a film score to not be much louder and to only be a compliment to the imagery you see on screen. How was it you said? Background noise? Pun intended

I'm surprised at the comments re: the score being background noise. It's not as upfront as TSN, which was a score-driven movie, but it's definitely there. During Amy and Nick's first meeting, I couldn't even hear the dialogue because the score was overwhelming. (In a good way, it seemed like they were making the viewer struggle to hear the characters like in the night club scene in TSN.) And then obviously as the reveals come/we enter the third act, the music becomes more and more of a character.

I know TSN spoiled us, but these movies aren't supposed to be the TR/AR show.

Yea, the score was out-front in some places and not so much in others. I think some of these comments on here stem from the one huge track on the OST being so quiet (which I'm sure we all expected to hear in the film with a big bang). But to be fair, there was a lot of dialogue over it so there you go.

Been listening to the soundtrack non-stop this week.


Went and saw the movie earlier today. It's phenomenal to begin with. One of the best book adaptions in a long time. Then again, it helps that Gillian Flynn who wrote the book also handled the screenplay. If you've read the book, you know how insane the ending is. It got tweaked just a bit for the movie. Still fucked up.


The soundtrack itself added a greater atmosphere to each and every scene that the music is on. Easily TR+AR have topped themselves yet again.

I enjoyed the previous two OSTs Trent/Atticus made, but something about Gone Girl feels off to me. The near-complete lack of percussion is certainly a perplexing omission. I'm all for atmospheric piano-driven music, but a lot of these tracks could have had more bite if more was added to the formula. Social Network and TGWTDT did a great job of mixing tender piano-based tracks with the more hard-edge cinematic thriller-type compositions, making Gone Girl feel very diluted in comparison.

I'm sure the soundtrack is great in terms of how it fit into the movie, but as a standalone work there's simply not enough going on to hold my attention. It's like they drew from the same well one too many times, came up empty halfway through, and were too stubborn to look for more water elsewhere. Other than a few tracks ("Technically, Missing" of course) the bulk of this collection can be downright meandering at times.

It's fucking beautiful. One of the best things Trent has ever done... Certainly the best soundtrack. This is music you put on in the background and it makes you feel like you're in Metroid (at one point). At some points it also reminds me of music from certain Japanese RPGs. From the beginning it feels very cinema-esque. I say this because it seems that Trent and Atticus seem to have really developed as film composers. I must listen to this more...

@GanduGains (http://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=4829) What do you mean? In the beginning of the movie I was actually saying to myself it is little too loud and it's getting in way of dialogues. Or do you mean elevator music in sense of uninteresting? I think it was really atmospheric and sets the tone of each and every scene (what stand out in my mind the most, is when Amy slipped throat of NPH, music in this scene really creeped me out). Listening to it before was .. interesting. I liked a few songs, but it was obvious to me, that most of these tracks are meant to be heard within the movie. And when I actually saw it, it just brings me back to that movie and to those particular scenes and the whole soundtrack just makes much more sense. Fe. I really like Technically, Missing even before I saw Gone Girl, because it is really good track on its own, but use of it in the movie was just amazingly perfect.

The fact that there's no consensus when it comes to the volume of the score means that the respective theaters must be at fault. If it seemed too quiet, you either were expecting something more bombastic, or your theater has shit sound.

or he's expecting it to be the front and center aspect of his movie-going experience, even though he doesn't like it...which is really confusing on a couple levels.

Yes, but the coolest parts of certain tracks weren't even in the movie.

They're called cues. It's a common thing; you know, video games, television, film, commercials...

Poo sound mixing and editing I think. Very poo poo.

Are you nine years old or something?

Fincher's films are renowned for their sound design, and considering that Fincher has essentially worked with the same people in that department since Se7en, I doubt like hell that the sound was mixed poorly.

Guys, I figured it out. This guy is Danny Lohner AND HAS BEEN ALL ALONG.

My guess is Hans Zimmer.

I can't help but to feel that there were some Ghosts influences in the soundtrack, which is totally not a bad thing.

Is it just me, or is Trent doing a lot more press for Gone Girl than he did for Dragon Tattoo? I wonder if that's an indication that the studio are going to get behind pushing the score as an awards contender this time.

I was thinking that not only was it an early Oscar push, but maybe that Oscar push is coming because TR/AR finally have time to devote to a couple of non-Fincher scores and a new Oscar certainly wouldn't hurt that paycheck?

If I recall TR's mom passed away not too long before all the Dragon Tattoo promotion wouldve taken place and Im sure he was busy with HTDA as well

Trent and Mariqueen also had their second child right before the film premiered, so I imagine he was pretty busy at home as well as working on other stuff.

Just came back from seeing it.

Good film, and very telling about relationships gone awry. It asks more questions about your emotional reactions than what's up on the screen.

Although the score was fantastic, I don't think it was as experimental as TGWTDT, although it probably is a better score.

I find myself returning to Consummation a lot. Such an ominous track! Haven't seen the movie yet, nor have I read the book, but judging from the track title and the music it must be a disturbing scene.

I've been playing that a lot in the car too. Almost like I'm expecting that would be the soundtrack to a car wreck or something.

Saw this last night - loved the film, though the ending is a little meh. Have been really enjoying the score over the last couple of weeks, and seeing it in it's rightful place was very satisfying, so many times I was smiling when I shouldn't have been! For the people saying that the score was more in the background this time, couldn't disagree more. I thought the score was upfront, but just perfectly pitched. This may now be my favourite score they've done, took a bit of getting used to, but now I'm hooked!

Side note - one of the producers was Reese Witherspoon.....how bizarre!

I'm sorry if this has been posted already. I haven't been able to keep up with the board much recently.

I haven't listened to it yet, but based on the preview I heard, Fincher discusses the music in his films, including TSN, GG, and the Closer remix in Se7en:

Haven't seen it posted yet, nice find.


Saw the film last night, it's the best implemented score Trentticus have done so far by a VAST margin. It fits very naturally into the film, and changes accordingly to what's happening in a scene.
As a stand-alone piece of music though, I think it gets wearing in the second half - there aren't enough strong melodies later on, and are too many reprises. Social Network still stands apart from the rest as a solo album.

Very much agreed with this. As a piece in service to the film, yes, Gone Girl is the best out of the three. As a stand alone album, The Social Network is still the best. The other thing to note, this is the first TR/AR soundtrack with not a strong opening musical piece. "Hand Covers Bruise" and "Immigrant Song" were awesome ways to start those two movies, those two helped me to get amped up with the film, not so much with "What Have we Done to Each Other?"

Just from cinema, liked it. The music certainly added an extra dimension to what's happening on the screen, i hope the CD packaging features Nick and Amy and some other faces, that advocate and that cop for example are great characters too. Though i don't pin any specific tracks to any actors, Affleck is in each of them for me now.

I find that the opening title works very well for Gone Girl. Both the film and book start in a questioning way, "What have we done to each other? What will we do?". 'What Have We Done To Each Other?' invokes that same sense of "questioning" thought, to me.

Agree completely that GG is the best score/film synergy of the three thus far. However, comparing 'The Social Network' to 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' is similar to comparing 'The Richard D. James Album' to 'Selected Ambient Works, Vol. II'. What is "better" will always be subjective, despite things such as length and intensity.

That scene and track in the film are fucking intense. Many people in my audience actually gagged.

What is it with these 'film score aficionados' who think they know better than directors what music to use in their films?

http://moviemusicuk.us/2014/10/06/gone-girl-trent-reznor-and-atticus-ross/

Completely weird to be that into film scores anyway, why not just listen to classical music that's written to be listened to on its own if you like it that much
