Lady in the Water soundtrack

by on Aug.26, 2006, under Audio

Lady in the Water is the latest movie from M. Night Shyamalan, and, like the previous 4 efforts, the score was done by James Newton Howard. The soundtrack consists of 12 tracks from Howard, plus 4 tracks of Bob Dylan covers by A Whisper in the Noise, Amanda Ghost, and Silvertide. Here is short review.

The overall character of the soundtrack is a subdued, haunting instrumental that evokes an appropriate underwater scene. It does punctuate on occasion with a slightly heraldic piece, but in general its a good background listening score – very mellow.

At times the score seems very familiar, but I can’t quite figure out what it sounds like.

The four Dylan tunes, which are supposed to appear in the movie, consist of an appropriately subdued “The Times They Are a-Changin”, done by A Whisper in the Noise; “Every Grain of Sand” with the Stevie Nick’s-like voice of Amanda Ghost, and rockers “It Ain’t Me Babe” and “Maggie’s Farm” done by Silvertide.

I have to admit, that this is isn’t in general the type of music I listen to (which is why it took about two weeks to post this review), but I find this is the perfect music for listening to at work…quiet enough to not disturb my coworkers.
