"If you're a fan of soundtracks driven by haunting tunes from electronic synthesizers, this one belongs in your CD collection. Very reminiscent of early Tangerine Dream soundtrack cuts (like the sexy train sequence in "Risky Business") that were typical from 1980 to 1986. Afficiados refer to this period as the "Virgin Years", and it is a by-gone era. You rarely hear this kind of music anymore -- although bits and pieces have been picked up and integrated into a newer musical form called "Trance." Composed by John Carpenter, my favorite on this CD is the Main Theme, followed by the entrance by the Duke. Greg Caton

This score is a Carpenter classic.

"After his famous Halloween theme, this score for his cult classic sci-fi actioner is probably Carpenter's best work. The now famous main title theme is terrific in and of itself, but The Duke Arrives and Police State/Romero and the President are just as strong. Carpenter fans, or just those who like quality synth tunes, will need no encouraging to buy this. Few composers know how to use the synthizer to its full effect, John Carpenter is at the very top of that short list. An essential for any Carpenter addict."
