After a season of committing high-risk, high-absurdity murders that contributed to a heart-wrenching conclusion, season five of Dexter finds the lawful evil antihero trying to pick up the pieces of his broken life while continuing to struggle with his inner demons. The soundtrack offers plenty of stylish, sun-soaked Latin and salsa music, from classic artists like Beny More to contemporary acts like the electro and hip hop-tinged Bomba Estereo. Selections from Daniel Licht’s atmospheric score round out the collection, capturing all of the drama and eeriness viewers have come to expect from the cable series.
Stanley Kubrick made his own musical choices for his films, many of them existing pieces that were forever redefined by their use. (Remember "Thus Spake Zarathustra" in 2001: A Space Odyssey?) For his final work, Eyes Wide Shut, he employed composer Jocelyn Pook to compose some evocative string-filled music (including one track, "Masked Ball," eerily featuring backwards vocals), but his score also included works by Liszt and Shostakovich, syrupy versions of "When I Fall in Love," "If I Had You," and "Strangers in the Night," a jazzy rendition of "Blame It on My Youth" by Brad Mehldau, Chris Isaak's cross between John Lee Hooker and Roy Orbison on his 1995 song "Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing," and, opening and closing the disc, a simple but intense solo piano piece by Gyogy Ligeti, whose work also had been used in 2001 and another Kubrick film, The Shining. The result was an eclectic soundtrack album that primarily was of interest to fans of the film who were in need of an aural souvenir.
