Crown Vic
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack


Composer: Jeffery Alan Jones
Label: Plaza Mayor Company Ltd
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 15 November 2019

Plaza Mayor Company release the original soundtrack to Crown Vic, with music by Jeffery Alan Jones. The movie revolves around one explosive night in the life of a seasoned LAPD veteran as he takes a young cop out on patrol and shows him the brutal reality of life behind the wheel of a Crown Vic...

Given the movies premise, Jeffery Alan Jones delivers a textbook atmospheric soundtrack for Crown Vic. It's an electronic score with a lot of heart. There's a little too much background atmospheric noise for my liking though. And while this is no doubt perfect in the movie to create tension, it doesn't work quite so well well listened to in isolation.

Talking about the music, Jones said: "I wanted to create the city’s heartbeat through the music. A rhythmic pulse, always intriguing, in its somehow twisted dark beauty. The cityscape drones, it weeps and is intensely frightening. My aim was to support the narrative and expose the subtext without being noticed. The score lives in the shadows and underlies the complex emotions in both the characters and the city at night. Beautifully dark and sprawling; yet suffocating in its own despair."

And he's certainly managed to achieve all of that. It's just a shame that it's not really a score that works as well when listened to on its own merits.
