[NOT MOVIE MUSIC] Yann Tiersen would like you to know that he is not a film composer. Yes, the music-box ditties on the Amélie soundtrack are what made the Frenchman famous, and his often instrumental solo work can be described as "cinematic." But spin his latest album, Infinity, at your next party, and you'll soon realize this ain't background music. Tiersen's compositions are cold, glistening soundscapes, erupting without warning into densely orchestrated power-pop with melodies seemingly plucked from a dusty tome of long-lost European folk tunes. If this were a film score, I’d watch the movie with my eyes closed.
