SAE is shipping out.

Anybody else like Martinez work for The Knick? I find it to be refreshing.

Me! Like everything else Martinez ever does, his work on The Knick is pure magic. Loving it!

I love this one...then again, I like almost everything Martinez puts out.

Interesting how Martinez chose to contrast the 'old' with the 'new'. His work giving what I feel is cold/clinical and with a sense of horror to the goings on. I suspect Soderbergh was thinking Martinez would be a 'sound' choice.

I feel exactly the opposite. Martinez' music always takes me right out of the scenes of this otherwise excellent series. It just doesn't feel right. Call me old fashioned but I much prefer Korzenioswki's approach to 'Penny Dreadful', great stuff!

Good thing the production team didn't listen to you or we would've missed out on one of the best scores of the year!

The emotion felt when seeing a scalpel cut through flesh. Electrical shock. Heroin use. Clinical, white, sterile, disease presentation. I felt the music served these well, in the most modern of sounds. To me Martinez offers somewhat of a light on the hill for the most modern era of film music directions, I maybe alone in this regard.

The vinyl edition will be interesting to hear.

I agree in absolutes. Martinez has been a favorite of mine since discovering him on Traffic. I'm glad that Soderbergh introduced us to him with sex, lies, and videotape and I stand firmly by knowing that he is a talent beyond most others.

Nobody listens to me...I didn't say he was a bad composer but one of the best scores of the year...??

Yeah, I think it's one of the best of the year too -- at least in the tv category. Thank God there are composers like Martinez who dare to go against convention and do stuff like this (scoring a period drama with smooth electronic textures and beats). There are many who try to copy him these days, but there's only one Cliff and he's instantly recognizable.

I "hear" you Luc, embrace your malevolence.

Haha, will do. I know he's not one to 'overscore' a picture but I find his noodlings always rather bland. I know he's well respected in the filmmusic society and he comes accross as a real nice guy who cares but his music is just not for me. That's the reason I'm giving the World Soundtrack Awards a miss this year (for the first time in a very, very long time).
