Mercurial Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood's second foray into film scoring (his haunting work on Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 masterpiece There will Be Blood should have landed him an Oscar nomination) finds the budding composer in a much more plaintive state of mind. Based on the book by Japanese author Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood follows a love-lorn pair of college freshmen as they navigate the emotional wasteland of 1960's Tokyo. Peppered by three tracks from Krautrock legends Can, Greenwood's score is largely string-based, with full orchestral arrangements that eventually give way to a simple string quartet. Dreamy, evocative, and distant, Norwegian Wood's tone resides far from the quivering, feedback-laden rage that fueled There Will Be Blood, but the minimalist attitude remains. Part Arvo P?rt and Part Brian Eno, Greenwood continues to impress. ~ James Christopher Monger
Professional Reviews
The Wire (p.47) - "Greenwood's settings for string orchestra are unabashedly beautiful..."
Record Collector (magazine) (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 --- "Greenwood's odd, slightly disturbing work sits perfectly with the magical, creative confusion that is Can. It's a harsh, brave listen for anyone daring to lend their ears."
