Fight Club – Dust Brothers (1999)

 


Fight Club
Composer: Dust Brothers
David Fincher has settled into a profitable working relationship with Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor, but it was the Dust Brothers (not to be confused with The Chemical Brothers’ earliest incarnation) who scratched, sampled, looped and programmed Fight Club’s spikey score into bloody submission. As befits a darkly scattershot film, the score takes in a wealth of styles, guitars and choirs brawling with synths and decks, as well as some cheesy stuff, some lo-fi, and something suspiciously reminiscent of elevator music. Somehow, though, it coheres, even if the album doesn’t quite hit the crescendo the film does, lacking The Pixies’ Where Is My Mind. I am Jack’s soundtrack to the end of civilisation.

21 Yes, but...
These aren't designed as 'Greatest-of' lists or even compendiums of the scores we love the most. Without being all highfaluting, the aim is to try to capture a moment in time - in movies and popular culture - and like them or not, The Bodyguard and Titanic soundtracks were HUGE. They sold more than 70m copies between them, dominated radio playlists and came attached to two huge hits. More

22 What a predictably boring selection for the 90's!
You left out some of the best soundtracks: Léon; The Straight Story; Se7en; The Thin Red Line; Grosse Pointe Blank; Cruel Intensions; Human Traffic; The Virgin Suicides; Kikujiro and instead you include Bodyguard and Titanic!? More
