I didn't find any thread (no pun intended) about this score.
I would be very surprised if it's not the next Oscar winner.
Nonesuch Records released this lovely cue on YouTube:

That is a lovely cue. It kind of reminds me of music from the Golden Age like something Alfred Newman would compose. (Maybe it also sounds a little like Debussy?)

Thank you for this! Pre-ordered and listening to the single at the moment. What a lovely cue. Cannot wait for this to come out. Just gorgeous.

Greenwood is really underrated imo. Also the author of what I consider arguably the best score of the new millennium, There Will be Blood....and Williams is my all time fave composer so I don't think I'm biased.

I've seen Phantom Thread, and it is a fascinating, gorgeous film.
The performances, direction, cinematography, design, scoring and costuming are excellent. What is fascinating about it is that it harkens to older classical find, British in particular, but has this very subtle off-center, almost perverse undercurrent about it. Its pure Paul Thomas Anderson, but its almost like early David Lean mixed with David Lynch. It's long but it's a pleasure to watch such masterful filmmaking and performances. The film has almost non-stop underscoring - both original music, classical pieces and period popular music. Often each sequence is almost like a musical movement. I plan to get the CD too.

Too bad with Nonesuch releasing it the CD will be AGAIN placed in some unprotective paper piece of crap...

When anyone gets a copy, please, confirm how it is actually packed...

The cue posted sounds pretty good!

I've never heard any of his work, save for the piece linked in the OP which is truly lovely. Very evocative of the "Golden Age" sound. I hope Mr. Greenwood has a long and illustrious career.

That is a lovely cue. Now I'm even more interested to hear the music and see the film. I'm glad the film seems to give Greenwood a more relaxing canvas than The Master did.

That cue is gorgeous. I find it very evocative of the 1950s, the time period this film is set in.

I haven't seen this film yet, but I haven't heard anything but the highest, most effusive praise on Jonny Greenwood's score. And the praise isn't only for the music itself, but specifically how it functions as a film score in relation to what the film is about and who the characters are. I'm very excited and intrigued by "Phantom Thread" and its score, and look forward to seeing it when it gets its wide expansion next month.

Do you know if the usual suspect web sites i.e. SAE, Amazon et al will have it, or only Nonesuch ?

Excellent film and score

I found the film neither brilliant or profound or much of anything other than a bore. The score was okay, nothing more. My opinion. I used to think Anderson was interesting, but I can't stomach any of his films from the past decade.

THE MASTER was great, but I can't stand INHERENT VICE. Hopefully, this will fare better. With Daniel Day-Lewis, he already has my interest. I find the score fascinating on album, although at times chilly and slightly grating.

Interesting to read the different comments about this film/score. Personally, found this to be absolutely wonderful on many levels: The acting , cinematography, storyline and score. It seems to all come together and would highly recommended this to anyone. In any case, this is definitely one to be seen on the big screen. Regarding the score specifically, I look forward to hearing a recording but at this stage can say that it serves the film very well. Hope you all enjoy it too!

I tried playing parts of this score in the car over the weekend through Spotify and the beginning was certainly a bit shrill at times so I didn't get very far. Will try to give it a fuller listen later and see if it catches me.

Likewise I had the same issue with Mr. Greenwood's score. For some reason I cannot connect to any of his music.

I didn't find it brilliant or profound, I found it funny. It was almost a parody of its genre.

I'm afraid I too fall into the "indifferent" camp on this one.

There's so much more interesting stuff being written in other parts of the world right now, Japan especially, that I don't feel the need to heap praise on myopic scoring like this, just because it's "actually orchestral" and thematic in approach. Struck me as a real bore, personally.

I'm sure it supports the film just fine.

His talent is inarguable but I still think HARD EIGHT is his best movie.

To the topic at hand, has a(n upcoming) CD release been confirmed?

ETA: Nevermind, I see Nonesuch's site has the physical release as February 9.
