For fans of Jerry Goldsmith's score for Ridley Scott 1978 movie Alien, this two-disc Intrada set is the ultimate fantasy. Everything is here and then some. Disc 1 contains Goldsmith's entire score as he originally intended it with every cue in place, including those that were later cut from the film plus his recomposed versions of cues the director made him change (Goldsmith's original main theme, for example, appears without its signature heroic trumpet melody because the director thought it wasn't creepy enough). Disc 2 includes the original soundtrack as issued on LP plus six other bonus tracks of demonstration takes and even the brief except from Eine kleine Nachtmusik used in the film. The stereo sound here is fabulous, the performances definitive, and the liner notes exhaustive. And the score, like the film, is a classic of its genre. With its mixture of the ecstatic chromaticism of Scriabin, the skittering strings of Penderecki, the harmonic waves of Ligeti, and the atmospheric percussion of Herrmann, Goldsmith's score became a template for all subsequent science fiction/horror movies. But as this splendid release so amply shows, the original still can't be beat.

Tim Burton in 10 Albums

Through feature-length and animated films, Tim Burton has created a fascinating world of cinema over the last thirty years where poetic wonders meet gothic aesthetic and macabre humor. With few exceptions, he worked on most of his films with a specific composer, Danny Elfman. Without Burton’s images, Elfman’s music would not feel the same, and vice-versa. In 2019, the two artists proved this one more time with their last collaboration: the deeply moving "Dumbo".

Iggy and the Stooges: The Dawn of Punk

In 1969, a group of self-proclaimed numbskulls unleashed their distorted rock ‘n’ roll and nihilistic lyrics to the public. Fronting the Stooges was Iggy Pop, a guy whose dance moves almost seemed to resemble Nijinsky’s—only far more wild and far more rebellious. No wonder he was destined to become the godfather of punk rock.

Sofia Coppola on Air
