Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Drag­on Tat­too is Trent Reznor and Atti­cus Ross’ sec­ond col­lab­o­ra­tion with David Finch­er and yields an incred­i­bly dense, dark and icy col­lec­tion of music. Per­fect for dark nights and long dri­ves, this also fea­tures How To Destroy Angels’ cov­er of Bryan Ferry’s Is Your Love Strong Enough? and Karen O singing with Reznor and Ross on Led Zepplin’s Immi­grant Song.

With­out even seen the film itself, the film’s score has become an incred­i­bly pow­er­ful col­lec­tion of mem­o­ries to me. I often find myself day­dream­ing about cer­tain events in my life, lis­ten­ing to tracks such as One Par­tic­u­lar MomentPar­al­lel Time­line With Alter­nate Out­come. Drag­on Tat­too bears a dream­like but often dark and icy under­tone as if a mem­o­ry of a dis­tant past is try­ing to reveal itself.

Like with most of Reznor and Ross’ Work, the film’s score is lay­ered with beau­ti­ful­ly strange sound­ing acoustic instru­ments and syn­the­siz­ers, using piano, bells, and beau­ti­ful sound­ing atmos­pher­ic pads, this sound­track has a unique and unfor­get­table sound, unlike any­thing I’ve ever heard.

If you could give day­dreams a sound­track, this would be it!
