Minimalist, un-atmospheric but strangely likeable by Shawn Watson (March 4, 2004)
Ry Cooder is a great musician with massive talent and he's always Walter Hill's first choice to score his movies. I loved Cooder's music for Last Man Standing but his score for Trespass is well...ugly. It's grungy, dirty and filled with lots of strange sounds. I'm not sure why he took this particular route but it doesn't exactly match what is happening onscreen.
Some tracks, such as the opening credits are in typically undeniable Ry Cooder style. Others are twisted and craggy, but they grow on you. Tho more like hemorrhoids than a head of hair. The second last track 'King of the Street' is simply awesome and is Ry Cooder performing at his best. It's worth buying the CD just on it's own. The final track is a tacky country western song that you'll like but not admit to.
