Seventeen tracks and alternate takes from the Italian cut of Dawn of the Dead, only some of which are heard in the various American cuts of the film.

"L'alba dei morti viventi" is a stately opener, deploying heavy bass and drums, church bell and guitar, while the wobbly and instantly recognizable synth threads its way through a couple of passages here and there. The alternate take offers different instrumentation and a more urgent feel. After the opening fanfares, "Zombi" settles into a catchy cop-show groove, mixing impressively intricate percussion, a groovy bass, and chanting. "Zombi (Sexy)" sounds like something played in a seedy nightclub in the wee hours of the morning, and "Zombi (Supermarket)", which features a very nice Hammond organ, provides a great showcase for the band's tight sound.

"Safari" is a pastiche of tribal drums and chanting. "Torte in faccia" is a jaunty little number that sounds like a silent-movie soundtrack to a day at the beach. "Ai margini della follia" is all electronic weirdness which begins to bear a certain resemblance to "Zombi", due the driving beat that eventually kicks in. The first alternate take of this tune sounds like parts of the original crossed with the treated zombie wails of the very last bonus track, while the second alternate take provides further electronic nuttiness. It's good if you can stand the constant bleeps.

The breezy "Zaratozom" is propulsive electro-rock with plenty of guitar. "La caccia" offers an almost regimental beat and keyboard melody, plus mandolin flourishes that give it a classical feel. Thanks to the use of fiddle, "Tirassegno" has an upbeat and rustic quality. "Oblio" sounds like an offcut from Dark Side of the Moon, complete with saxophone, suitably sparkling guitar, and plaintive piano.

This is the only release I know of that features nearly all the music featured in the film. All perfectly recorded, with every track neccessary to complete the zombie experience. There are only 2 reasons I give this 4 out of 5. The first is that the DeWolfe library music on the film is not included. This is a minor gripe and not really noticeable unless you look for it. The second is bigger - the Mall musak that was very recognisable from the film is inexplicably not on the CD. Overall, this is highly reccommended to fans of the film.

This album really surprised me. Separated from the movie, hidden depths are revealed to the music. It has scary, organic textures as well as thumping, uplifting sections, all very typical of Goblin, but perhaps undersold by Romero's film( the Argento version is more accommodating of the band apparently) Best Italian soundtrack artists, save perhaps morricone.?

Dawn of the dead soundtrack, while upbeat in (body) parts leaves you feeling haunted...it's the perfect cd soundtrack to accompany the end days as darkness descends upon the world with sheer Hell. Do not be afraid (to enjoy this cd) til the end of time!

A Great Goblin Soundtrack Gets Refurbished 23 May 2006
By John Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I reviewed this CD awhile back, so I won't go into details about the songs on this CD. However, as happy as I was when I purchased the 1998 CD, I was greatly disappointed with the sound quality, which sounded like it was recorded on gauze tape. Apparently, someone at Cinevox felt the same way, for in late 2005/early 2006 Zombi was reissued on their "Gold Tracks" subsidiary (the spine reads CD MDF 606). Is the Gold Tracks reissue worth the additional investment? Absolutely! The remastering breathes new life into the recordings and with the additional volume and clarity, the bonus tracks certainly stand on their own.

The downside? Unfortunately, Cinevox managed to omit the beginning "pickup" notes on Safari, Torte in faccia, and Tirassegno. Casual listeners will probably not notice, but to the people who grew up with the album it's a little bothersome. Also, the last track, Zombi (the living dead's voice!); on the 1998 reissue it's in mono. Here, it's given a stereo "bounce" with a half-second delay on the right channel: it's still an awful track.

The packaging is a digipak-foldout of the original 1978 album release cover with a MUCH better design than the 1998 CD. It comes with an eight-page booklet with more photos but with the same synopsis.

Overall, a fantastic soundtrack gets a desperately needed makeover. I give the 2006 release 4.5 stars out of five. Buy it!

Excellent late 70s rock soundtrack 29 Nov. 2007
By Danno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you've seen Dario Argento's cut of "Zombi: Dawn of the Dead," you're already familiar with many of the tracks here. If you've only seen George Romero's definitive American version of "Dawn," you'll recognize fewer tracks. Regardless, even if you can't stand the zombie subgenre of horror films, any lover of rock soundtracks will enjoy this CD. Stylistically, this CD covers a lot of ground (including a pseudo-country tune and some twin guitar harmonies that would not be out of place on a Thin Lizzy song) in addition to the usual Mellotron + funk bass Goblin trademark sound. There's even a funny voodoo chant parody ("Safari") that proves Goblin had a sense of humor. However, the standouts here are tracks that rely heavily on electric guitar, grand piano, and saxophone. ("Oblio" and "Sexy")They remind me a bit of a stripped-down Pink Floyd.

I hope this doesn't seem as though I am saying the soundtrack is derivative. On the contrary, a movie with many moods demands a versatile variety of background music. Goblin delivered exactly what Argento seems to have wanted, and he was the film's producer. It's nice getting the soundtrack in a deluxe package along with out-takes and alternate versions as well.

One last note - this CD contains ONLY the music that Goblin recorded for the movie. It does not contain the Muzak that can be heard throughout the shopping mall that most of the movie takes place in. I've no idea where to find the music that George Romero used in his American cut of the film.

Dawn of the dead!! great album. 27 Mar. 2002
By Dylan Gatenby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love the four main songs to this album called
-L'alba de morte viviente
-Zombi (sexy)
-La Caccia
-L'alba de morte viviente (alternate take)
The opening theme is worth buying this album first off.
"La Caccia" is an upbeat techno-jazz song one of Goblin's best.
It's featured twice in the film. (Romero must have liked it.)
Zombi is a great techno song. It's featured when Roger, Steven,
and Peter are in the mall running from the Zombies.
I give this one five stars......next to the "Get Carter"
soundtrack this one's the best.
Badminton for Mummies 9 Jan. 2009
By Billy Pilgrim - Published on Amazon.com

Now I love horror movies, and I love movie soundtracks. The 1978 Dawn of the Dead is one of my favs. (The '04 version ain't too shabby either) And the music really caught my ear and stayed with me. I remember when I first saw it, the music snippet/sound fx they play in the opening, it left me with the feeling, "OK not your dad's zombie movie." so you could imagine how happy I was when I found out in 1998 they released a 20th. anniversary edition, with music from Goblin (who independent of this have an impressive body of work in their own right, definitely worth checking out). Of course like a dummy I lost that copy and voila! Amazon to the rescue. The tracks Zombi, La Caccia, and L'alba del morti viventi are among the best and any die hard fan will recognize them immediately and be glad they were added, because you know sometimes you buy a soundtrack and they leave out that one track that makes it for you? Well thankfully this is not the case here. All the great eerie, atmospheric and in some cases psyched up music is here. This is good for film buffs and anyone adventuresome and in the mood for something different. If you like this you might also want to try out the Day of the Dead soundtrack too. Although John Harrison took over the musical duties for that one but it's still great. As a stand alone and as an entry in the Romero Living Dead franchise. In short. I loved it. A gazillion stars.
