Byzantium Soundtrack Review: this is a review of the film score Byzantium by Javier Navarrete.
Byzantium, a vampire thriller with a score from Javier Navarrete. What’s not to like? A lot unfortunately. You begin to sense that this score is going to disappoint big as soon as you listen to ‘Main Titles’ which is just ambient noise with some sound fx and a single piano note. How could he fill almost 2 minutes of that!? Well ok it gets slightly better. In ‘Secrets’ we have the beginning of a nice piano melody before the ambience comes back in style with some added chorals, very subtle.
Unfortunately most of the score are long-winded ambient sounds that one could have mistaken for an FX track. I found only one redeeming track and it’s a very nice piano and string piece called ‘My Mother’, but even if I gave it 5 stars, it’s really 4.51 at best.
Yeah this was pretty bad, and I am so sad because vampires and Navarrete sounds so exciting! Bleh.
10. My Mother
