Amram's dark Americana unearthed on CD,
By A Customer
This review is from: Manchurian Candidate (Audio CD)
Using a harmonic vocabulary from the post-Alex North school of film composition, David Amram provides a nice balance of modern effects, rich string writing, and scene support. Unfortunately he also has the tendency to let his ideas run away with him, forcing the sound engineer to blanch back the volume on Amram's bold crescendos simply to allow for the dialogue to be heard. On the CD though the sound rings true, with no interruption from Frank Sinatra, and with very little audio analog hiss.
