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."
