"One of the great movie-going events of the year was the screening at the Barbican (Piccadilly) with Neil Brand's bluesy new score played live..."
Philip French
The Observer
June 2004

'Above all else, Brand’s score has breathed new life into an already outstanding piece of work. He, along with the combined efforts of Brock and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, has taken each of the film’s signature themes and developed them to an unprecedented degree. At times humorous and sweet, at others threatening and frightening, Blackmail, with this score, is surely as powerful and effective as any of Hitchcock’s most acclaimed achievements.'
