I’ll admit that A Walk Among The Tombstones was something of a disappointment to me. I found it to be somewhat slow and dour as a movie, and to be honest the soundtrack absolutely reflects that feeling.
The tracks are somewhat slow and ponderous, and in that they fulfil their duty to the film they accompanied. I looked Carlos Rafael Rivera up on IMDB and to be fair to him this is his first feature film credit as Composer, and from the PR information we were issued prior to reviewing the soundtrack he is an accomplished musician and composer.
To sum up, there is by no means anything wrong with the A Walk Among The Tombstones soundtrack, but I would not in general recommend it for anyone unless they are particularly fond of the film. I’m not sure who else would gain enjoyment from listening to it.
