For the 1979 cult sci-fi movie L'umanoide (The Humanoid), directed by Aldo Lado (credited as George B. Lewis), the legendary Ennio Morricone composed a score of catchy, futuristic, synthesizer-based arrangements with great electro-orchestral disco grooves and dissonant atmospheric soundscapes, marking quite a departure from his usual style. This is the first release of the complete soundtrack on vinyl. Limited edition of 1000 transparent blue LPs.
"A weird later Ennio Morricone soundtrack – and one with some surprising use of electronics and keyboards too! The maestro has used electric instrumentation on other scores, but this one has a pretty different feel – a handful of tracks that have more of a future-sounding quality, fitting for the movie's sci-fi story – mixed with a few others that are more atmospheric, and with more familiar Morricone elements at play. Overall, the whole thing's pretty great – and the sound is really more early 70s than you'd guess from the date of the movie – no clunky 80s keyboards, and still more 70s analogue elements that have a nice degree of warmth, even when they're trying to sound a bit cold" Dustygroove
