Product description

Brand new


In this soundtrack to a near future where the video camera is the "mind's eye," Howard Shore re-creates the angst he usually achieves with an old-fashioned analog orchestra with a Synclavier II synthesizer. For some purists, this would be a lackluster venture into cost cutting, but for those who have seen and even bought into Videodrome's depressing sci-fi message, the results are thematically precise and satisfying. These metallic drones inspire a strange sense of '80s nostalgia. Images of wandering through some sinister Atari game come to mind. The computerized voices that begin the disc with "Welcome to Videodrome" are deceptively saccharine, and the rest of the tracks proceed to inundate the listener with those feel-bad timbres so common to "industrial music" but without all the self-importance. --Joseph Lanza
