Tindersticks : Trouble Every Day OST

5 / 10 'Trouble Every Day' looks like it's going to be a pretty sick movie. Vincent


Gallo and Béatrice Dalle star as a couple affected by a mysterious disease


that causes them to devour their lovers in a cannibalistic frenzy. Nice. And


not only that, they're munching flesh to a score of miserable jazzy farts


and dripping-tap-in-a-dusty-garret orchestral laments.





There's basically one proper song on this soundtrack, but it comes in two


forms, the truncated 'Opening Titles' theme and as 'Trouble Every Day'


itself. In its latter incarnation, it's a fantastic storm-brewing,


brass-stabbing, Nelson Riddle-goes-Tom-Waits, claustrophobic blues number.


It's more reminiscent of 'Curtains'-era 'Sticks than the North London sombre


soul revue of their recent 'Can Our Love...' collection. So basically,


y'know, it's another pretty great Tindersticks song that sounds quite a bit


like their other stuff.





It's not worth buying this album for, however, since the rest of it's made


up of frustratingly minimalist snatches of music, which no doubt make a lot


of sense when you're watching a French lass tearing through arteries. But


without the images it's a crushingly dull aural experience, even though some of it, like 'Houses' and 'Killing Theme', is beautifully arranged, all


swooning strings and insouciantly brushed drums.


Ironically for a soundtrack to a film about cannibalism, it leaves you


completely unsatiated.
