Plunkett and Macleane - Original Motion Picture Score by Craig Armstrong

Genre: Electronic, Classical
Style: Trip Hop, Breaks, Score, Downtempo, Contemporary
Year: 1999

Craig Armstrong proved with his Romeo and Juliet score that he can seamlessly mix several genres of music together to create a singular sonic experience. Many have complained that the modern sound of Plunkett and Macleane completely contradicted the movie's pre-industrial revolution setting. But it works in ways a period score would fail.

There's something here for everyone who uses a movie score for imagination fuel. Plunkett and Macleane is full of tension, booming bass, orchestra, angelic voices, nervous sound effects and haunting ambience, and exciting 'driving' pieces that are sure to get your blood flowing.
