The soundtrack to Danny Boyle's radical, zombies-as-rageaholics horror film 28 Days Later has a fittingly eerie, volatile score that captures the desolate paranoia of a post-apocalyptic London as well as the worst behavior of its undead denizens. It was rumored that Godspeed You Black Emperor! was going to score the film but that honor went to British composer John Murphy; although GYBE!'s music appears in the film and seems to have influenced some of Murphy's pieces, particularly "Rage" and "In the House - In a Heartbeat," which intersperse maelstroms of guitars with bleakly atmospheric passages. Likewise, the prickly-yet-dreamy guitars on "No More Films" and "Jim's Dream" also recall Radiohead as well as Godspeed. Tracks such as "Tower Block" and "The Tunnel" occasionally succumb to predictable-sounding widdly guitars and video-game-like beats and synths, but the claustrophobic dread of "'I Promised Them Women'" and "The Search for Jim" is both subtler and more effective. Soprano Perri Alleyne's pristine vocals grace "Jim's Parents (Abide With Me)" and "Taxi (Ave Maria)," which add just the slightest hint of spirituality and optimism to the proceedings.

[..] I love listening to a Movie Score. And this album composed by John Murphy is one of my fav. score. I love it as much as i love the film.
