The Music On Vinyl release of Marco Beltrami‘s score for the recent Carrie remake is absolutely fantastic in terms of … well, everything. Beltrami’s score isn’t presented here as a series of individual pieces, which is good. While there are slight pauses between each selection, for the most part, the Carrie score is almost arranged in such a way as to make it seem like one singular work.
Which is as it should, be really. Think of it this way: if a filmmaker has a visual aesthetic for the film, you’d want it complimented by a composer who can do the same thing with the score, and that’s what Beltrami has accomplished, here. Each piece plays like a movement to a larger work, rather than each scene being compartmentalized.
