CD Reviews

Excellent late 70s rock soundtrack
Danno | NY, NY | 11/29/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you've seen Dario Argento's cut of "Zombi: Dawn of the Dead," you're already familiar with many of the tracks here. If you've only seen George Romero's definitive American version of "Dawn," you'll recognize fewer tracks. Regardless, even if you can't stand the zombie subgenre of horror films, any lover of rock soundtracks will enjoy this CD. Stylistically, this CD covers a lot of ground (including a pseudo-country tune and some twin guitar harmonies that would not be out of place on a Thin Lizzy song) in addition to the usual Mellotron + funk bass Goblin trademark sound. There's even a funny voodoo chant parody ("Safari") that proves Goblin had a sense of humor. However, the standouts here are tracks that rely heavily on electric guitar, grand piano, and saxophone. ("Oblio" and "Sexy")They remind me a bit of a stripped-down Pink Floyd.

I hope this doesn't seem as though I am saying the soundtrack is derivative. On the contrary, a movie with many moods demands a versatile variety of background music. Goblin delivered exactly what Argento seems to have wanted, and he was the film's producer. It's nice getting the soundtrack in a deluxe package along with out-takes and alternate versions as well.

One last note - this CD contains ONLY the music that Goblin recorded for the movie. It does not contain the Muzak that can be heard throughout the shopping mall that most of the movie takes place in. I've no idea where to find the music that George Romero used in his American cut of the film."
