Buy it... if you seek one of the most rhythmically and instrumentally creative scores of the digital era, and the highlight of the first dozen years of John Ottman's mainstream composing career.

Avoid it... if you are easily overwhelmed by wildly percussive scores that dazzle you with their fiendishly executed diversity of sound.

Ottman
Incognito: (John Ottman) This is one of those examples of a movie concept that should achieve cult status, but instead failed so miserably at the box office and thereafter that you have to sit and contemplate where it all went wrong. The concept of Incognito involves Jason Patric as one of the world's foremost forgers of classic paintings. When he decides to paint one last Rembrandt and pass it off as real (so that he can retire on the earnings), he gets caught up in the murder mystery surrounding the potential buyer of the painting. He has to prove his innocence by painting a Rembrandt in court, leading to one of the more interesting court scenes ever put on film. There's also a fair amount of chasing in the film as well. The task of scoring the project for rising talent John Ottman was one of infinite possibilities, and he took advantage of every last drop of creative energy in his system to write one of the most truly original scores in the digital era. The 1990's were known as the era of Ottman's most original works, with many of his scores like Incognito existing as hidden gems for fans only familiar with his superhero scores of the 2000's. Many collectors of the composer's works still, after ten years since Incognito debuted, consider the score to be Ottman's best achievement. It's difficult to argue with that assessment, for Incognito defines Ottman's early success with its wicked, deviant sense of style... a style that many film music collectors wish Ottman would rediscover. Incognito is a score that proves that less can indeed be more, for Ottman's ensemble consisted of only a modest 60 Seattle players. But the incorporation of a wild array of specialty instruments, the use of an old church as a recording location, as well as a controversial recording mix all give the score a sound unique to itself. In an era when film scores all begin to sound alike, and references can be drawn with ease between the new and old, Ottman's Incognito is a breed of animal unlike most others.
