Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Air Studios, Lyndhurst Hall, London.

The soundtrack from the acclaimed 2011 Pedro Almodóvar film features instrumental music by internationally renowned film composer -- and longtime Almodóvar collaborator -- Alberto Iglesias, inspired by Bernard Herrmann's classic scores for Alfred Hitchcock's thrillers. Besides Iglesias' compositions, La Piel Que Habito includes four other selections: "Por el Amor de Amar" (the film's main song) and "Se Me Hizo Fácil," both sung by the exquisite flamenco fusion vocalist Concha Buika; a cover of Elliott Smith's "Between the Bars" by Chris Garneau; and "Shades of Marble" by Danish electronic artist Trentemoller. ~ Mariano Prunes
