In 1981, prolific film director John Carpenter made Escape From New York, a near-future dystopian action film which has inspired a whole generation of movie producers and musicians. Mr. Carpenter also took care of its soundtrack, originally out on Milan Records and reissued in 2000 by Silva Screen, and again now. If you haven't heard it before, it's a true journey into the depths of electronics. The double LP contains 27 songs, all representative of the chilling scenes in the film, ranging from vintage drones, to flurries of orchestral instrumentation, and even bursts of new age sounds. It's a mood record, and one which should be enjoyed with an open mind and an attentive set of ears. A classic.
