Dec 30, 2019Uncut Gems is a triumph. The Oneohtrix Point Never albums occupy almost every different mood the human body is capable of expressing and now Lopatin’s soundtrack work is starting to do the same. We’ve had the moody, anxious Lopatin on Good Time and now Uncut Gems has allowed him to show his more thoughtful and emotional side.
Dec 17, 2019Manic as the source material may be, Lopatin’s score remains entirely surprising, which doesn’t mean shocking, per se. It’s more that it has a large blast radius in the movie, itself a funny character in an ensemble of unintentionally funny characters. Lopatin is brazenly and consistently there.
UncutJan 8, 2020Replete with the sort of shimmering, hypnagogic textures that characterises his solo work. [Feb 2020, p.30]
Dec 17, 2019Utilizing a variety of different sound palettes, from glossy synths to pounding drums and chanting voices, Lopatin uses the Uncut Gems score to give the listener effective moments of tension, dreamlike airiness and triumph, all in equal measure, making the listening a journey all in itself.
MojoDec 17, 2019Edgy, operatic, driving and frenetic. .. Restful listening, this is not. [Feb 2020, p.89]

Dec 31, 2019The worst Soundtrack for a major commercial film I've ever heard. Totally devoid of character connection. A jumble of poorly composed synthThe worst Soundtrack for a major commercial film I've ever heard. Totally devoid of character connection. A jumble of poorly composed synth cues seemingly randomly placed which often work against the emotion of the scene. I've read some reviews by some "super hip" persons. Is this just personal "taste"? Are any of them well trained musicians/composers, film music historians? I think not. Amazing how the creators and producers of this film, with all the wonderful composing talent out there crazily came up with and approved THIS. What a debacle. I surely hope this BS is not part of some horrible trend. Any and all musical styles have legitimacy, but when the creation is so inept in itself and then further mixed as film underscore to the clear destruction of the film, well I surely can't understand why the "composer" in this case shouldn't consider another profession.
