Changing Lanes

The novelty value here is that the soundtrack consists of one long title track, all percussive frills, echoing synths and atmospheric noise. For fans of would-be cutting edge, ultra modern film scoring (although ironically with just a few minor alterations it could easily originate from the 80s) this could be your thing. Personally, despite one or two agreeable sections, it all smacks of self-indulgence and lack of creativity, which is a pity because David Arnold is capable of a good deal more than this.
