Citizen X

Randy Edelman

" Citizen X is rather unmemorable "

Written by Thomas Glorieux - Review of the regular release

Citizen X is a rather somber affair, both the tale as its score. Randy Edelman became attached to the picture and provided his usual music to it. The score's a somber dark and serious affair, having some sort of color that keeps it all rather ok for the time being. It's strange considering it hardly shifts a tone or a pace, but somehow the score is interesting enough to a degree. The theme itself is decent, but screams for a full blown out version. The album itself is made for a background experience, because the moment it stops you'll hardly remember what you heard. Focusing too much on its dark intentions, Citizen X is a score for the fans of the story, and I'm betting that will not be an awful lot.

I suppose you could say it's decent and interesting to a degree, but still ...
Remains a somber affair, one could easily get lost in it.
