PAUL LEONARD-MORGAN / Dredd (2012)

Paul Leonard-Morgan’s score is evocative of the gritty, dirty underbelly of Dredd’s violent world.  In that respect it’s a roaring success but a repetitive, noisy and abrasive electronic punch in the face that flirts with dark ambient and industrial soundscapes will alienate many casual listeners.
There’s an occasional frail, textured wave of hope attempting to break through the overabundant distortion but the thick bass keeps it cruelly subdued.
The timing seems a little haphazard in places; almost as if it was made by a bedroom musician dabbling in Cubase.  I assume that was intentional.
