Prisoners Soundtrack CD released on Watertower Music

WaterTower Music has announced the release of Jóhann Jóhannsson's soundtrack to the Alcon Entertainment thriller Prisoners a Warner Bros. Pictures release starring Oscar nominees Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain), and directed by Denis Villeneuve. The album will be available at all digital retailers, and a CD will be made available through Amazon.com A vinyl edition of the album will be available through NTOV/Cobraside in early November. "Prisoners" topped the US box office in its first weekend and has been acclaimed by critics. The score has received its fair share of plaudits: Associated Press: "Even the moody music by Icelandic composer Johan Johannsson will make you shiver. Just try getting it out of your head as you leave the theater." Film music mag: Prisoners is certainly one of the more interesting scores to appear since Johnny Greenwood's brilliantly bizarre There Will Be Blood, while doing far less "if that's even possible - a score that communicates riveting ideas with the most deceptively minimal of efforts - It's art music that just happens to be a film score, and pretty much completely outside of the box in a cool Icelandic way."
