Halloween is upon us, and it's time to fire up the VCR for some primo fright-fests. True lovers of the blood & gore genre know that Italian filmmaker Dario Argento and Pittsburgh's one and only George Romero are two of the best in the biz, and both turned to the Italian art-rock group Goblin when they needed otherworldly sounds to match their nightmarish visions. Goblin is one of the only rock bands that exclusively recorded soundtracks, and this collection includes some of its most inventive and creepy work. The jazzy, percussive, synth-driven tunes will be instantly familiar to anyone who's seen Argento's Profondo Rosso (1975) or Suspiria (1977) or Romero's classic Dawn of the Dead (1978). That's a fine triple bill if you have an adventurous video store in the neighborhood, but the music works just as well on its own, especially as background music for your Halloween party, or for a little vampiric necking.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goblin's greatest hits. October 26, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This packed to the gills CD collection offers fans and new listeners alike the pleasure of having all of Goblin's most famous themes on one disc. Profondo Rosso, Suspiria, and Dawn of the Dead are all accounted for. Also offered are samples from the lesser known, but still quite good, Tenebre, Phenomona, and Contamination. To make the collection even better is a sampling of their substitute scores for Patrick and Martin (replacing Brian May and Donald B. Rubinstein respectively) as well as their work for television. As a Goblin sampler it is one of the best you can get your hands on. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Perfectly Creepy Mood-setter July 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you're a horror fan of either George Romero or Dario Argento, you probably have this CD already or will soon buy it regardless of how highly I recommend it. I'll try and tailor this review to those of you who are curious about this Goblin CD and would like to know more before buying.

Despite their association with horror films, Goblin is not a heavy-metal band. This CD contains mostly keyboard-heavy instrumental rock that goes back and forth between jazz-rock and progressive rock. There are a lot of vintage keyboards to listen to here, from warm string effects courtesy of the Solina synth, to a variety of electric harpsichords and organs. Goblin wrote music with unusual syncopations and interesting dissonances, which often remind people of either the 'Tubular Bells' LP or John Carpenter's soundtracks. In other words, it hypnotizes you and then shocks you.

Two of the strongest tracks are "Suspira" and "L'Alba dei Morti Viventi." "Suspira" starts off playful and mischievous, almost like the music from a "Harry Potter" movie but then gets darker and scarier as the rhythms and instruments change and our attention is focused on a throbbing bass guitar. "L'Alba" is from the original "Dawn of the Dead" and features a heartbeat-like bass drum and intentionally plodding chord changes on the synth. It's the perfect score for a film dealing with the Living Dead (which is what 'Morti Viventi' is translated to in English).

No compiliation is going to be perfect, but if you're looking for suitably eerie mood music to listen to while reading horror novels you cannot go wrong with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the netherworld! November 13, 2001
By Simon
Format:Audio CD
Some of the spookiest music you will ever hear! I really enjoy the rhythm combination of the bass and drums and the eerie keyboard solos that take you on a trip of the unknown. The Jazz element is present too which adds a unique overall touch the this music. If you are a Dario Argento or Italian horror movie fan you will definately enjoy this. Play them often on The Crazy Coyote Blues and Jazz Power Show 1490 KOTY in southcentral Washington state.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect compilation of a great band! October 13, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This disc introduces the American audience to the Italian band Goblin in perfect manner. Along with their most famous themes, DRG included several rare tracks never before available on LP or CD! A truly enjoyable collection all the way through. A great way to introduce yourself or a friend to Goblin's unique style or for a long-time fan to complete the collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Goblin Primer May 14, 1998
Format:Audio CD
This CD makes the perfect introduction to the music of Goblin, a wonderful group of musicians who have composed some of the best film music in history. Their haunting themes for films such as Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebre and Notturno make for great listening, even if one hasn't seen the films they are from.

4.0 out of 5 stars dance with the devils October 17, 2005
Format:Audio CD
awesome horror prog from the italian masters! all the "hits" are here, the themes from Profundo Russo, Suspiria, Tenebre. Goblin's songs are full of haunting atmosphere and creepy hooks, but also plenty of songs feature romantic ambience and even some funky disco influence creeps in on a few numbers. now that is scary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! January 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is an amazingly creepy sound but wonderfully composed! Goblin are masters at their art. This is the perfect halloween soundtrack. This is a great CD and if there's any hestitation in your mind, then you must be insane, listen to some soundclips and see if you like. My personal favorite composition is easily the Susperia Segments.
