The news of a new project by Spike Jonze will always be received with enthusiasm on my part; but when said project happens to have a score by Arcade Fire, tumultuous excitement is the only way I could describe my level of anticipation.
It is not often that we fall in love with a score before having seen the actual film and I’m blaming this on the very late release date for ‘Her’ in the UK (February 14th!) and the fact that we live in the 21st century. If you have forty minutes to spare and want to disappear from the world for a little while, I’d urge you to listen to this. It is beautiful and I am in love and I cannot wait to experience all these feelings that this beautiful score has beckoned in me, in the solitude of my bedroom, through someone else’s eyes on the silver screen.
