And Another Thing...

There are times where I'll find a compilation or bootleg that I do not know the original source. I always try to give credit where it's due but sometimes it's impossible for me to know just where it originated. If you are a blogger or someone who happens to have made a particular bootleg or compilation and you find it listed here let me know and I will give you full credit...

Event Horizon/Michael Kamen/Orbital

Okay so this is probably the best Science Fiction/Horror hybrid since "Alien". No. I'm not kidding.

There's a lot of argument over Pal W.S. Anderson's films but most will agree that this is his magnum opus.

The score by Kamen is effective and adds to the tension that's prominent throughout the film. The soundtrack album actually takes his score and remixes them in a weird way. This would typically sound like blaspheme but I really don't mind it. Not here anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I would like to have the entire untouched score but what Orbital did here is really awesome. It's got those dancey elements ya know? But I really wouldn't want to dance to this. The remix work compliments Michael Kamen's work. The score is definitely there, it's just being put to a paticular dance rythm at times.

I really must suggest this soundtrack for download. Immediately.
