It’s an intimate and deep score and you don’t get a furious string cue like “Cadenza” every day. That one alone is worth the price of the score. Welcome once again Lorne Balfe inside your soul. He keeps coming with different stories covering the entire range of feelings you could think of and this is why he is one of my favorite composers. Just keep them coming, Lorne… –Soundtrack Dreams

Lorne Balfe’s ‘Blackwood’ Score Supports The Spine Tingling Moments Through Melody And Structure
Blackwood feels more like a character journey that ends with a revelation instead of your traditional let’s try and scare the crap out of you type of score. Lorne starts us off with a wonderful main theme that he uses throughout the score. The score is heavily anchored with that theme plus some great melodic structures, and that makes it very accessible for the audience. We are placed in the footsteps of the characters and the narrative that way. Lorne employs some chilling builds and uneasiness techniques to build that mysterious ghostly atmosphere. There always seems to be something bubbling under the surface, and it feels the music is always about to pull the sheet off the secret revelation but you’re not sure if you want to see what’s under there. -Read the full review at Film Music Media
