An incredibly tense monster movie as original as it is scary, 2018 blockbuster A Quiet Place is the second directorial feature from John Krasinski. The score by Marco Beltrami is an absolute tour-de-force - it's basically another character in the film. It can be forceful and bludgeoning one minute, and quiet and reflective the next. His players twist their instruments to generate tones and textures not usually associated with them; the layers of sound and percussion on display are incredible. Opening track "It Hears You" is reminiscent of a classic Planet Of The Apes cue; it's disquieting and slightly wonky but has an incredible hook that immediately lets you know you are in horror territory. Contrastingly, "A Quiet Family" is a beautiful piano track that reminds you of the life the family lived before a world of monsters took over. The pianos are detuned and electronics are layered over traditional instruments to create something truly unsettling. 180g vinyl pressing with artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin adorning a 425gsm gatefold spot varnish jacket.
