Score by Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein.

Emmy-winning composers Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein are bringing back all the eerie, synth sounds of the first season—and then some… The 34-track album will undoubtedly tantalize fans with the ambiguous track names—like “I Can Save Them.” – Anna Menta, Newsweek

“Soldiers” is a must-hear two minutes of chilling synths and punishing drums, with an emphasis on percussion that constitutes a first for the Stranger Things score. – Paste Magazine

The Netflix series “Stranger Things” is as much defined by its sound as by its story and visuals. – Kevin Lozano, Pitchfork

[“Glenn’s Wheels” is] an energetic piece that starts light and airy but suddenly dips in and out of a thundering, frenetic bass line. – Clara Mae, Nerdist
 
One of the most sought-after composers in modern film and television.  – Aaron Cooper, Bearded Gentlemen Music
 
Genre-defying score – Terri Schwartz, IGN

Score by Carter Burwell.

  
The composer has previously worked with Haynes on “Carol,” “Velvet Goldmine,” and “Mildred Pierce,” and this time around he creates a lovely music box of sounds to accompany Haynes’ new movie. – Edward Davis, The Playlist
 
Haynes emphasized the importance that music plays in the film. Haynes worked with composer Burwell to come up with a way to play down the emphasis on the dialogue, placing it instead on the score. – Variety
 
Utterly captivating, wholly necessary score. – Vanity Fair
 
Perhaps even more notable here is the work of composer Carter Burwell, who has created distinct musical moods for the narrative’s parallel threads. – The Hollywood Reporter
 
David Ehrlich writes for IndieWire, going on to praise Carter Burwell’s original score as tying the project up with “an incredible sense of cohesion.” – CANNES Reaction (EW
