Editorial Reviews

Howard Shore again masters the mood with this foray into the seamy underworld of William Burroughs. In this story about a place called Interzone, full of sinister centipedes and slimy "mugwumps," there is nothing better at giving listeners the creepy-crawlies than the depressing styles of what many could instantly identify as "beatnik" jazz. This is the music Burroughs and cronies like Allen Ginsberg cultivated to forge an anti-white-bread counterculture that was Ozzie and Harriet's worst nightmare. Shore re-creates this music as Ward Cleaver might have heard it way back when. To be even more authentic to the period, he collaborates with Ornette Coleman and also incorporates the Thelonious Monk composition "Misterioso." This soundtrack's best moments, however, occur when Shore drops the beat pose and just shines darkly. --Joseph Lanza

5.0 out of 5 stars inspired March 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to this work since it was first available. I'm just now reviewing it though. This was one of those CDs that goes in the player and doesn't come out for a long time. It is just fascinating. This is an absolutely brilliant work from Shore featuring Ornette Coleman. I agree with the editorial reviews that one does not need the film to appreciate the soundtrack. Although, I do really like the film too.
I am a big fan of Ornette Coleman. It is difficult to compare this work with other Coleman work because the setting is o different. Coleman's soloing, and the use of his soloing, is insipred. In fact, that is a great way to describe this work - inspired (now I have a title for my review). Inspired by what? Burroughs, Naked Lunch, Cronenberg? I would love to know more about that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth forcing yourself to listen to. June 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Excellent soundtrack by Howard Shore featuring Ornette Coleman. The music is extremely moody, and not easy to focus on. In the film, the music often seems to be coming from the apartment next door, almost as natural sounds. Music has a beat generation feel to it, not a modern update. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible soundtrack May 19, 2012
By Peng!
Format:Audio CD
I just had to add this review. I've had this soundtrack for a few years now, and just put it on again today. This is a series of brilliant compositions played by orchestra and the inimitable Ornette Coleman so the compositions are in a sense really collaborations between Shore and Coleman. Not intrusive music, like another reviewer said, natural sounds as if played on a record player next door. The Simpatico/Mysterioso piece intertwines Coleman runs with Monk's Mysterioso. And then there's the Interzone Suite.

A highly recommended pastiche of themes and riffs.
