The soundtrack comprises the third non-aliased solo release by Mike Patton, who wrote, produced and performed all tracks (with the exception of some percussion parts), released on March 11, 2008 under his own Ipecac Recordings with special edition copies of the album being released with a bonus DVD containing the film.[2] The score itself is 10 minutes longer than the film because Patton "got excited"[1] and has been well received by critics with allmusic giving it a four out of five star rating and crediting Patton for the "depth of his orchestral arrangements" calling them "surprisingly mature".[2]
