Another masterwork

"Jerry Goldsmith created soundscapes that sometimes surpassed the films they were written for in evoking emotions and revealing character. For Logan's Run, Goldsmith came up with one of his most brilliant creations. It opens with stark, electronic sounds, effectively mirroring the cold future society depicted in the film. Only when Logan breaks out of the domed city and into the natural world does Goldsmith allow the full orchestra to come in, warming up the music just as Logan's worldview expands. This release finally captures the full range and power of the score in pristine sound. And, heck, I even like the Love Theme tacked on at the end..."

"I've not had the chance yet to hear the revised CD version of Logan's Run.
Years ago when this movie first came out,
everywhere you went this music was played.

My favorite is the main them..its very futuristic yet a chilling song at the same time.

One of Goldsmith's greatest achievements

"LOGAN'S RUN is a significant score, in my opinion one of Goldsmith's very best, and certainly among the most memorable sci-fi scores ever - a unique listening experience with lots of "futuristic" electronic sound, all of it beautifully constructed. Most of the music derives from or interpolates a simple thematic conjunction of two 3-note motives which form a very non-tonal "melody". For example: B - C - D flat / B - C - D. This "melody" is inverted, too, and it's just about everywhere throughout the score.

During the first half of the film, in reflecting life within the dome the writing is almost entirely for synthesizer or strings (maybe with percussive piano). Later, at the point where the two protagonists (Michael York and Jenny Agutter) escape to the outside and for the first time experience the natural world, Goldsmith's palette becomes the full orchestra. At that moment, a theme which had been introduced in the fourth cue, "On the Circuit", suddenly bursts into color in "The Sun". It is reprised in "The Monument" and again in "End of the City". This may be Goldsmith's most yearning and romantic melody; it's almost agonizingly beautiful.

This disc has about every note JG wrote for the film and the cues are sequenced properly, too - a fabulous release from the good folks at Film Score Monthly. Highly, HIGHLY recommended!
