Suspicious and Sinister,
This review is from: A Clockwork Orange (Audio CD)
Having to do a music GCSE has begun to enlighten me on the joys of classical music. Howver, after being recommended this by a friend, I have found one of the most excellent soundtracks ever recorded.
The opening piece, Title Music from a Clockwork Orange is a sinister peice, at times envoking terror within the listener. This piece sets a tone for the rest of the album. The following piece, the classical Thieving Magpies, although a happy piece, cannot be looked upon without suspicion of something evil. This continues with similar pieces in the soundtrack.
My personal favoruites on the album coincide with Alex's, Ninth Symphony, Second Movement. Both versions are very good.
There is also two very good laid back pieces, which marr the actual album. I want to marry a lighthouse keeper is an amusing track, which only adds to the tension induced. The outro, I'm Singing in the Rain, I can only visualise as Alex's face staring at the camera. Horryfying.
