REVIEWS

"The level of detail and development in Reloaded shows exemplary craftsmanship, and there's not a single moment that I wasn't glued to my speakers." - Chris Tilton, Cinemusic Online

"Davis exercises the score’s musical highlights and creates a kind of tone poem for THE MATRIX as the music rises and falls, carries the powerful choral surges and mysterious motif riffs that characterize the Matrix, and as it matches the film’s hypnotically stylish action scenes with an increasingly furious sonic assault." - Randall D. Larson, Cinescape

"While we eat our hot dogs and watch our reality shows on TV (in our mind, that is), our real bodies are being harvested in a horrific, actual reality of machine dominance..." - Christian Clemmensen, Filmtracks

"Don Davis rips through air with knarly, intense -and exciting- orchestral score. Strings whirl, brass come unglued! 21 minutes of Davis music alone plus 16 minutes of his score with additional material by Juno Reactor. Their combined fury unleashes on dynamic, lengthy 'Mona Lisa Overdrive'. Disc two is a sonic tour-de-force!" - Doug Fake, Intrada

"The pastiche, the quick-cutting between themes and ideas, coalesces in this moment, showing in microcosm Davis's ability in this movie to develop small cells of ideas, even those from the first film, into a narrative that does not feel rushed or forced. On the basis of his work in this movie and the first Matrix, Davis should be moving quickly into the top rank of film composers." - Andrew Granades, SoundtrackNet
