Award-winning film scorer Hans Zimmer (Gladiator, The Lion King) teams up with the Jigs (said to include the film's director, Barry Levinson) to fashion this spirited bout of Celtic revelry and Irish mourning. While director Levinson takes a comic approach to this tale of two wig salesmen bound by friendship but potentially divided by the politico-religious implications of their differing faiths, Zimmer's score features a series of tunes ("One Hundred and Ninety," "Day Job") that underlines the forlorn gravity of the situation. Titles such as "Toupee or Not-Toupee," "I'm a Dick" and "F**kin' Genius" also indicate that Zimmer mastered the film's comedic moments. "Dick" is ironically titled as it turns out to be a sensitive finger-picked ballad, while "Toupee" veers into synthetic rock territory with mechanical beats supporting amplified fiddles. Zimmer also incorporates elements of delta blues, as the mutated moans of "The Rant" and the dutiful slide work of "You Gotta Lose to Win" amply demonstrate. --Rob O'Connor
