EDITORS’ PICK: Michael Andrews, ‘Donnie Darko’ Reissue

Death Waltz's 'Donnie Darko' reissue

Death Waltz's 'Donnie Darko' reissue The Artist/Album: Michael Andrews, Donnie Darko (Death Waltz, 2012)

Our Review: Shadows slowly envelop the slow-burning frames of this film score, in the same way shades of darkness lurk just out of reach in its midnight movie source material. Of all the Death Waltz reissues that put the UK label on the map last year, this may be its most subtle. And with two tear duct-tapping covers of “Mad World” arriving at the very end, its most haunting.
