It's good to hear Hermann talking as you do here; and the music is wonderful; rich, resonant orchestrations that remind you of the films and the great time you had watching them the first time round. The music does stand alone - Psycho is still one of the most iconic pieces of music going, film or no film.
This is really awe inspiring music. The last track holds his own words into a monologue on why music in movies (scores) is so important. Only track I thought was included was Cape Fear, got to get that one from his other records. What an inspiration he must have been !
