Bad from the motion picture by David Graney and Clare Moore..underrated gem

This rare soundtrack to the 2003 Australian movie crosses several genres including jazz, lounge, film noir and even some quiet soul funk. The interesting thing is that it was all done by the same composers, David Graney and Clare Moore. David and Clare have come up with a score that resembles scores to movies like Ocean's Eleven and Pulp Fiction with shades of Ry Cooder and David Holmes. Whilst essentially a soundtrack album, this is one that can be listened to on its own and still be entertaining (even with the snippets of dialogue added in, which aren't obtrusive). It reminds one of those crime thrillers from the 40s and 50s but with a contemporary sound. Possibly one of those underrated gems for soundtrack collectors. Oh, and the movie itself is one very funny black comedy.
