Makes melancholia seem pleasant.
on 23 July 2004
This soundtrack captures the melancholia of the film spectaculiarly without bringing you down. The energy of 'chase' performed on early synthesizers is a stirring introduction to this epic film. Composer Moroder captures the essence of the story and his music is interesting by itself as it is early synthesized sounds, quite experimental at the time this was recorded. There is a blues number 'Istanbul Blues' sung by David Castle in Traditional blues style and there is the piano solo 'Loves theme' accompanied by early synth strings. Overall great music.
