Answers to Nothing (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Composer: Craig Richey
Artists: Nico Vega, Imagine Dragons and Brian Vander Ark
Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Available 31 January 2012

Against the backdrop of a child abduction case we follow five days in the life of the single parent detective assigned to the case, her best friend whose determination to get pregnant keeps her from confronting her husband's infidelity, a school teacher and his obsession with the missing child that pushes him to the edge of vigilantism, a beat cop grieving over the violent death of his wife, a recovering addict and her wheel chair bound brother preparing for the LA marathon, and a self-loathing African American TV writer's search for love...

Lakeshore Records's release of the soundtrack to Answers to Nothing contains just over 1hr, 05 min of music spread over 27 tracks. Of this, 18 tracks (almost 25 mins) are composed by Craig Richey. Richey's music is mellow and interesting enough, although to be honest it's not the sort of music I'd want to listen to all that often.

The main artist included on this album is Nico Vega, with three tracks performed by her. While I wasn't particularly keen on those songs, I did enjoy 'Hear Me' and 'Fade', both of which are performed by Imagine Dragons, and Coby Brown's 'Second Chance', while interesting enough, reminded me of Mike and the Mechanics 'Living Years'.

It's a strange mix of musical styles, but if you've seen the movie you'll know what to expect.
