The film, “P.J.”, also has an incredible score by composer Neil Argo, which goes along well with the cast's fine, performances and the beauty of New York City. Needless to say, the two are a match made in movie heaven.

Reviewing the soundtrack....” I am pleased to report that Mr. Argo's score for “PJ” is a hidden gem, one that I sincerely hope is made available to the public at some point. This intimate orchestral score was a very pleasant surprise, reminding me a little bit of the low-key work of Elmer Bernstein. The opening “P. J. Main Title” is a gorgeous (though brief) piece of music that hooked me immediately.”

The main theme for SURVIVORS is a wonderful, richly orchestrated melody for a full ensemble of woodwinds, French horn, and violins over cello, while that for SAFARI is a muted synth and percussion dominated theme. The music throughout the CD is relaxing and absorbing, tranquil and persuasive.

“P.J. proves to be a restrained and subtle backdrop for this intimate film. Argo’s score is a pleasure to listen to, made all the more so by the fine summarizing “End Title,” a beautiful piece of music in its own right.”
