This review is from: Labyrinth: Music From The Motion Picture (Audio CD)
So what is it, exactly, that gives Labyrinth its sheer brilliance? Is it the music, the story or David Bowie's domineering performance as Jared? It's hard to say, and the likely conclusion is that they all share the task of making a timeless classic, that nonetheless holds that 80s glamour. This movie could not be done today.
The soundtrack holds a tiny slice of the Labyrinth world. David Bowie is BRILLIANT. His songs make this album; superb, rocky interjections in an otherwise awesome bit of musical engineering courtesy of Trevor Jones (he does the 'non-Bowie' bits). This CD isn't just a soundtrack. It's an album in and of itself, and pure magic.
