Review of the Amer soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

cover - amer
We Release Whatever the Fuck We Want Records has started to gain attention for the interesting things they do to their records, and locked grooves are quickly becoming a hallmark. However, while the likes of the Dark Star soundtrack featured them at the end of each side, Amer's soundtrack 10-inch record begins with not just one locked bit of sound effect, but multiple instances thereof on each side. It's absolutely diabolical.

Review of the Lagrange Point soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

cover - lagrange
Upon dropping the needle on Ship to Shore's release of the Largrange Point soundtrack, one wonders just how the music to an 8-bit game for the Nintendo Famicom can sound so amazingly full. Honestly, the music on Lagrange Point rivals the likes of such 16-bit scores like Outrun, and it's all due to a chip inside the cartridge -- Konami's VRC7 sound generator integrated circuit.

Review of the L’assassino E Ancora Tra Noi soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

firenze-ost-rev
When the concept of a ‘film sonoro’ was introduced on last year’s release of Detto Mariano’s score for the Rambo knock-off, Striker, it turned out pretty well, creating a fun ambience of action pieces sprinkled throughout, but it doesn’t work quite as well here. The best thing Private Records’ imprint Stella Edizioni Musicali could have done with this release of Detto Mariano’s score for the 1986 giallo, Firenze! L'assassino E Ancora Tra Noi, was make it a double LP.

city-depths-ost
From the cover art, featuring a silhouetted man in a carpark, to the purple-tinged cassette, to the liner notes, Bryce Miller’s imaginary soundtrack, City Depths, is absolutely gorgeous in the way in conveys discomfort. As Miller states in the liner notes, the experience he’s hoping to communicate with this music is ‘a sense of uneasy stillness as the moon casts everything in darkness and shadow.’

Review of ‘Rocktober Blood’ soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

rocktober-blood
Heavy metal horror was such a short-lived phenomenon in the early ‘80s, one can barely call it a movement in horror cinema. The actual metal-themed horror flicks - ones with a band bringing evil to a town - can be counted on one hand, but to their loyal legions of fans, they’re heads and shoulders above the standard fare of the day.

Review of the BBC’s ‘The Living Planet’ soundtrack at Starburst Magazine

bbc-living-planet
Silva Screen’s continuing series of reissues from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop has absolutely delighted and amazed us, and the music from the BBC television series The Living Planet continues that trend. This LP is a bit of a departure from the past compilation releases, focusing entirely on the music of Elizabeth Parker for the 1984 documentary series.
