Adam Resurrected
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Gabriel Yared
Label: Caldera Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 20 February 2017

Caldera Records release the original score for the motion picture Adam Resurrected (2008), composed by Gabriel Yared. The film follows Adam Stein, a clown who is sent to a concentration camp in WWII. There he meets Commandant Klein, whose dog Stein pretends to be by behaving like an animal. After the war, Stein is sent to a mental asylum where he meets a young boy who pretends to be a dog. This encounter brings back old memories for Stein which will haunt him forever...

Once again Caldera release a rare, collectable soundtrack that has previously been unavailable. This time it's Gabriel Yared's score for Adam Resurrected. Over the course of 20 tracks (43 min, 05 sec) the listener is treated to quite a ride.

The album opens with 'Main Theme', which could almost be a classical piece of music in its own right, before moving on to disorientate the listener by throwing various different styles at the senses. We have the electronic 'Adam and Gina in Bed' which sounds like a low budget '80s nature documentary); 'Adam Hallucinates' could have easily been composed for a horror film; and 'Haifa Arrival' has a French sound to it, thanks to the use of accordion as the main instrument.

Personal highlights include 'Life and Death', which is an eerie, yet beautiful track; 'Adam and Davey', which houses one of the score's most notable themes; and 'Adams Idea', which is a bitter sweet track - perfect to close the album on.

This is one of those scores that feels like it's over way too quickly. There's a lot of depth here that make this a soundtrack worth adding to your collection.
