TRENT REZNOR AND ATTICUS ROSS / The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (2011)

If ever proof was needed that film / music awards are nothing but public masturbation for the artists and industry, then this is it.  It's a 173 min 34 sec soundtrack to a 158 min film and I felt every second of that running time go by.
The film was unnecessary.  The score is almost unlistenable.  Not because it's ambient or drone, I generally like that kind of thing, but because it's uninspired and monotonous.  Upping the volume helps to hide the inherent emptiness but the tedium is inescapable.  Some of the track titles sum up the listening experience perfectly: I Can't Take It Anymore; The Same as the Others; The Sound Of Forgetting; and the best one of all, The Seconds Drag.

Songs of Note: You're Here; Great Bird Of Prey

I wouldn't even give this piece of shit a 1.

It'd be a big fat zero aka frisbee for me.
