The Fly / The Fly 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Howard Shore's masterpiece, 8 Aug. 2013

This review is from: The Fly / The Fly 2 (Audio CD)
David Cronenbergs terrifying meditation on metamorphosis achieves its legendary status as one of the best scyfy horrors ever in no small part because of Howard Shore's awesome operatic soundtrack. Shore's avant garde yet melodic soundtrack heightens the horror, pathos, and fear we feel as we follow Seth Brundles tragic transformation from a geeky likeable scientist into a nightmarish and insanely hostile mutant desperatly trying to cure its condition. Standout pieces include the Overture, Stathis Enters, where the hapless Stathis Borans enters Brundles lab in an attempt to rescue Veronicca Quaiffe from Brundlefly, the music expertly ramping up the tension to the moment when Brundlefy pounces on Stathis. The following sequence, The Jump, where Brundlefly melts Stathis's arm and leg highlights Shore's masterful grasp of avant garde composition. Shore also demonstrates his ability to highlight pathos with his music for The Last Visit where Ronnie visits Brundle to try and tell him about her decision to have an abortion, and Brundle makes his famous insect politics speech and Shore perfectly captures both the sadness and horror of the moment. All in all one of my favourite soundtracks that rises way above the usual generic Hollywood soundtrack offerings.

Christopher Young's Soundtrack for the Fly 2 is quite good and serves the film well but The Fly 2 whilst not a bad film, pales next to Cronenbergs The Fly, Christopher Young is a good composer and has written great scores for films like Hellraiser and Hellraiser 2, and his score for Fly 2 has some good moments but I would rate it 4 stars. Shore gets 5 stars as does this disc because I think the score for The Fly is almost perfect.

Brilliant album. I played it 5 times in a row the first time I evr heard it. This 3 CD boxset gives you loads of extra tracks and remixes. This is what Hawkwind are about, cosmic rock at its best. Magnu is awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars True electronic music., 25 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Zeit (Expanded Edition) (Audio CD)
Zeit is a great album if you like the early space music of Tangerine Dream. Yes its long and some might see it as challenging but for those who enjoy the music of Ligeti, Arvo Part, and enjoy soundtracks like Forbidden Planet they will find much to enjoy here. This is real electronic music not sugar coated new-age pap for the fan of commercial music who wants to dip their finger into the electronic music world. Sadly TD of late have done far too much sugary music and this album reminds us of how awesome they used to be.
