A seminal soundtrack from the legendary John Carpenter – one of those key records that showed the world that he was as great of a composer as he was a director! The album's a Carpenter-esque masterpiece – lots of cool, spare electronics – used in ways that make the whole movie a whole lot scarier than even the images on the scree
n – a quality you'll definitely appreciate here as you listen to the album on its own! Some of the best sounds are the most subtle – spare use of basslines and keyboards that almost make you feel as if Moebius and Rodelius have gone over to the dark side – and these are mixed with just a few more "action" based moments. Titles include "Up The Wall/
Air Force 1", "Everyone's Coming To New York", "The Duke Arrives/
The Barricade", "Back To The Pod/
The Crazies Come Out", "Police State/
Romero & The President", and "Chase Across The 69th Street Bridge". Also features a few previously unreleased bonus tracks too!
