    If David Gordon Green can get performances this good out of Prince Avalanche stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch then he’s on to an absolute winner--Explosions In The Sky and David Wingo are already there.

    All told, Prince Avalanche is a beautifully subtle and introspective score that highlights the strong points of its composers while serving the needs of the film it was written for.

    Dramatic tension exists throughout, but in ways Explosions fans aren't used to hearing from the band. [No. 102, p.54]

    It's an ensemble work, but the tremulous "An Old Peasant Like Me" is especially affecting. [Sep 2013, p.87]

    The soundtrack to David Gordon Green's slacker comedy works on a smaller scale, capturing fleeting moments in a series of reflective interludes that often pair long, sustained notes over plucked acoustic guitar.

    Spare bayou mirage score for Green's newie. [Nov 2013, p.94]

    A more significant or signature contribution from the band might have made the Prince Avalanche soundtrack a more intriguing listen and a more compelling stand-alone experience than the polite frictionless record presented here. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.96]

    I loved the movie which came out Summer 2013. That summer was so remarkable for me.

    I loved the movie which came out Summer 2013. That summer was so remarkable for me.
    But the music... It's so relaxing that I can't even realize why it's so hidden. It's the best soundtrack on the world.

    Skip this album and Manglehorn, if you want soundtrack listen to Friday Night Lights (legendary) or Lone Survivor, both epic in their ownSkip this album and Manglehorn, if you want soundtrack listen to Friday Night Lights (legendary) or Lone Survivor, both epic in their own right. This one and Manglehorn sound just different and in a awkward way. Expand
