Tangerine Dream - Transsiberia (TDI Version)

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1998

Transsiberia: The Russian Express Railway Experience is the soundtrack to a documentary of the same name.
The electronic music score is by Tangerine Dream (Edgar Froese and Jerome Froese).
Tangerine Dream soundtracks are seldom, if ever, middle of the road. They are either great works that stand alone well or they are complete flops when taken out of context.
This is a great CD. The imagery is clear and vivid, the sway of the rhythm creates the feeling of being on a train, and the soundscapes are appropriately cold and aloof. Deep listeners will feel the isolation of Siberia and the aura of royalty in the Russian heritage.
This is classic Berlin school electronica by the founders of the style.
It is essential e-music.

Tangerine Dream - What A Blast

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1999 / 2009

What a Blast: Architecture in Motion is another soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. It is for a documentary film of the same name.
The film is about razing buildings and the power of explosions and implosions. Edgar Froese and Jerome Froese have created an appropriately dramatic and active soundscape to accompany the images and to create imagery. This is energetic Berlin school e-music.
For fans of that style, this is a good disc.
A detonating soundtrack for a really outstanding video series about "Architecture in motion".
This release contains a bonus track.

Tangerine Dream - Zoning Soundtrack

Artist: Tangerine Dream
P: 1986/ 1996 

An Edgar Froese solo project billed as Tangerine Dream - he is the composer, producer, co-engineer and is responsible for all the instruments - the 13-track video soundtrack was released on January 25, 1996. The Movie was back from 1986.
Jerome Froese is listed as a co-composer on two numbers - The Conspiracy and Missing Link - and a saxophone is featured throughout, though the sound is probably programmed on a synthesizer. Each track is complete, with the clockings between 3:08 and 5:56, which is a plus, considering the abbreviated numbers that appear on other TD soundtracks.
Tangerine Dream was in a transition period as Edgar Froese was moving the group to its own label.

Vangelis - 1492 Conquest of Paradise

Artist: Vangelis
P: 1992
Vangelis at his VERY best - not one track can be disregarded as 'fluff or filler'. One of the best soundtracks ever made. Synthesizer and choirs at a monumental base.
This is the soundtrack to Ridley Scott's epic film about Christopher Columbus. The story focuses on Columbus' motivations and the consequences of that on the people around it. All this is brought to life by stunning visuals and a remarkable sense of detail. This movie needed an epic soundtrack, and Vangelis skillfully for filled this task.
The recordings on the album differ greatly from those in the film. Some episodes are identical but much of the music on the album is not actually in the movie, or appears in an entirely different form. Even more music appears in the film but not actually on the album. This makes the album seem more like a studio album than like a soundtrack. Many character themes as well as some passages for major turning points in the film (like the storm near the end) are not represented on the album.
What remains of the album however is not less desirable. A magnificent collection of melodic music, filled with choirs as well as appropriate synthesizers and native sounds this album sounds relaxing and exciting at the same time. It can be counted as one of the favorites amongst the fans.
It is also his greatest commercial success so far. Three years after its initial release it was used as personal theme by German boxing champion Henry Maske and re-released on CD single. This triggered a huge hype in Europe hitting the nr. 1 charts positions in Germany, Austria, Portugal, the Netherlands, Belgium and other countries, breaking many sales records (both single and album).

Vangelis - Alexander (Soundtrack)

Artist: Vangelis
P: 2004
Put the saga of history's greatest overachiever -- Macedonian emperor Alexander the Great had conquered 90% of the pre-Christian world before his death at 32 -- in the hands of Hollywood's favorite over-reacher, Oliver Stone, and the result is three-hours of epic blood 'n' bathos.
The soundtrack by Greek synth-score pioneer Vangelis Papathanassiou may be book ended by heroic orchestral/choral pomp of suitable scale and melodic dignity, but they buttress a far more compelling cocktail of primitive martial rhythms ("Drums of Gaugamela") and ancient ethnic-folk conceits ("Roxanne's Dance").
Though his film scores have become increasingly rare since the twin breakthroughs of his Oscar-winning Chariots of Fire and the sci-fi masterpiece Bladerunner, his work here argues that Vangelis' restless curiosity and musical range have only blossomed in the ensuing decades. With the exception of the final, club-targeted bonus cut, gone are his once overt electronics, replaced by a more organic, post-modern sense of fusion that evinces itself seductively on cues like "One Morning at Pella" and "Eastern Path".
Elsewhere, cuts like "Across the Mountains" and "Tender Memories" are powered by Vangelis' trademark graceful lyricism, a trait that helps set this score apart from sword 'n' sandal contemporaries like Gladiator and Troy.

Vangelis - Blade Runner (Soundtrack)

Artist: Vangelis
P: 1982 / 1994 / 2006
For a long period after the movie's original release in 1982, the music to "Blade Runner" remained one of the great unreleased soundtracks. Various theories have been offered over the years for why this should have been - the one that convinces me most is that Vangelis sided with director Ridley Scott in a dispute with Warner Bros over various artistic aspects of the movie, such as its ending and whether to use a voice-over or not. Vangelis has repeatedly stated that he abhors any interference into his own musical projects by "artistic nobodies" from the music-industry so he must have empathised with Scott and the fact that Scott finally got the version of the movie he approved of released in 1993 clearly prompted the soundtrack release the following year. This becomes even more clear from the personal note in the booklet from which it follows that it was Vangelis' very own decision to release the music at this point and not earlier, even adding some new pieces in the process of re-evaluating the movie plus music, a process which is itself very unusual as Vangelis hardly ever revisits past projects.
The movie is based (albeit very loosely) on a novel by cult SF writer Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) one of whose main literary concerns evolved around the tricky philosophical question "What is Human ?". This question and Dick's answer to it (i.e. "Human means Empathy") also form the basis of "Blade Runner" and manifest themselves at various points in it. So on one level there's the actual story with a few action-packed sequences but on a deeper, more relevant level there's the slowly evolving picture being painted of a future commercialised out-of-joint society where real people resort to transferring their hopes and ambitions to artificial animals cq. humans with a constantly blurred boundary between what's real and what's not.
All this must have appealed to both Scott and Vangelis whose contemplative music style appears tailor-made for the visually overwhelming and philosophically uneasy atmosphere of the movie. Examples of those atmosphere-enhancing pieces are both the Main and End Titles and the wonderfully loose 'Blade Runner Blues'. Others denote specific scenes, like the romantic 'Love Theme' which together with the 'End Titles' appeared earlier on the compilation album 'Themes' (incidentally: 'Memories Of Green', a Scott favourite, comes from the 1980 album 'See You Later'). The album fittingly ends with the emotional 'Tears in Rain' which accompanies the scene where the final runaway replicant Roy extends his empathy to pursuer Deckard just before termination.
Some vocals are provided by Mary Hopkin, Demis Roussos and Don Percival and a few key dialogue-samples from the movie are interwoven with the music here and there, but never in an obtrusive way.
As a conclusion: "Blade Runner" is possibly the best soundtrack album by Vangelis - the music, the movie and the ideas behind them certainly form another example of the many-levelness in which he revels.

Vangelis - Blade Runner (Soundtrack)

Artist: Vangelis
P: 19
88
This is the orchestral version (released in 1982) of the soundtrack, music written by Vangelis, from the movie 'Blade Runner'. Although the Vangelis soundtrack (released in 1994) faithfully recreates the original mood as well as having additional songs and different arrangements...
...the arrangements from this orchestral adaption are just as good and in some cases even exceed the official Vangelis soundtrack!
Specifically, the vocal parts from "One More Kiss, Dear" and it's "AM distant quality radio effect" works very well. Another favorite is "End Title" which has a Tangerine Dream type of arpeggiator/sequencer effect and isn't included on the Vangelis soundtrack. Finally, Memories of Green is just a wonderful arrangement. Whether or not you like the movie, the music is something very special. Very Nice job to Vangelis and to the New American Orchestra! Both versions recommended.

Vangelis - Blade Runner Trilogy (Soundtrack) (3 CD-Set)

Artist: Vangelis
P:
2007  
All music composed, arranged, produced and performed by Vangelis
Special three disc edition featuring unreleased & bonus material.
One of the best-loved soundtracks in the electronic music canon, the Blade Runner score is up there with the key works of John Carpenter in terms of its range of influence, and thanks to serial fiddler Ridley Scott and his incessant re-cutting tendencies, we now get to experience it all over again in an immense triple-disc edition released to coincide with the five-disc Blade Runner DVD odyssey that's currently doing the rounds.
The first disc features the score as was released on 1994's edition, while the second represents hitherto unreleased pieces and bonus material that appeared in the film but not on the original soundtrack release. The third disc is a special 25th anniversary revisitation of Vangelis' work on the film, comprised of new compositions based on the film. While the gratuitous sax scenes of the original soundtrack might have been a sign of the times, there's a certain garish quality to its usage on the new disc, but that said, it's still very much in-keeping with Vangelis' oeuvre, so no doubt fans will still lap it up, but it feels like an extra feature to the much-lauded material spread across those first two discs.
The foreword by the film's director, and knight of the realm, Sir Ridley Scott heaps praise on Vangelis' work, putting him right up there alongside contemporaries like Jerry Goldsmith and Hans Zimmer in the ranks of great modern film composers, but you'd also have to throw in some props for the amount of widespread public interest stirred up in electronic music in general, as a result of these compositions.

Vangelis - Chariots of Fire (Remastered)

Artist: Vangelis
P: 1981 / 2006
What can one say about this album which surely includes the best-known music by Vangelis? People who have just the one Vangelis album in their collection invariably bought either this one or the equally successful 'Themes'. Both the movie and this soundtrack won an Oscar of course and the first track 'Titles' has since then epitomized the Olympian ideal of excellence through sporting achievement. But the album also has a sort of spiritual feel to it, probably the reason why 'Jerusalem' by quintessential British religious composer Hubert Parry is included. This quality is evident in 'Five Circles', a rather stately piece having a Baroque touch, but even more so in the long closing piece. 'Chariots of Fire' could be described as a conventional piano-concerto - having a very contemplative atmosphere apart from a few lively outbursts. Vangelis (who is an absolute master of the inspired short form) clearly gave this a bit more thought than usual, showing that he can succeed in the long form as well, here aided by some excellent piano-playing. Most of its music wasn't used in the movie at all, in contrast to all the other pieces, which denote specific scenes.
A good soundtrack album and it makes one wish he'd released the similar sort of piano-concerto from material of the later movie 'The Bounty' as well.

Vangelis - L'apocalypse des Animaux

Artist: Vangelis
P: 1972 / 1986
L'Apocalypse Des Animaux brings together various pieces supporting the images in Frederic Rossif’s nature-inspired film of the same name. The music doesn’t so much describe the realities of nature itself but rather reflects a sort of philosophical reality. On one level, the association always get is how people in prehistoric times might have viewed nature: sometimes tranquil (as in ‘La Petite Fille de la Mer’), sometimes dark and mysterious (as in ‘Creation du Monde’) but always part of themselves. On another level the music manifests a sort of nostalgic longing back to those times which can nowadays only be glimpsed in the ever-decreasing world of animals, hence the apocalyptic title of the film. Although very relaxing music, it is this aspect of many-levelness (a feature of all Vangelis’s serious work) which sets it apart from New Age music.

Various Artists - Underworld / Evolution (Original Score)

Artists: Marco Beltrami
P: 2006
Composer Marco Beltrami (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines; Hellboy; I, Robot (Score)) picks up where Paul Haslinger (the composer from the original Underworld movie) left off, and lets the audience have it. With his penchant for melodic themes amidst complex action cues, Beltrami soars to new heights and plummets to new depths. Track 12 "Truckin'" is the cue to sample, with its orchestral assault and fantastic seven-beat charge. The album adds two original songs at the end, including a cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Something I Could Never Have" by up-and-comers Flyleaf.

Various Artists - Underworld / Rise of the Lycans (Soundtrack)

Artists: Various Artists
P: 2008
Rise of the Lycans is the third installment in the Underworld saga, and its soundtrack had a lot to cover in regards to the fairly epic movie. "Rise of the Lycans," thankfully, regains nearly all of the originality and thoughtfulness of the first soundtrack that was utterly lost on the "Evolution" soundtrack, and fully satisfies both as a soundtrack to the film and as an awesome mix.
Virtually every song on this CD is remixed or reproduced for an original Underworld sound, and the new material will satisfy any fan. The emo stylings of the "Evolution" soundtrack are thankfully nearly completely excised, leaving "Rise of the Lycans" in a darker, more industrially-based rock scene. The masterful remixing by the ever-talented Danny Lohner (credited on the Underworld soundtracks as `Renholdër') keeps the metal from being too harsh at the same time as keeping the softer tracks from being too lulling.
My personal favorite and the track featuring the most famous rockers is "Underneath the Stars [Renholdër Remix]," contributed by The Cure. The vocals of the lead singer float smoothly over the track as the remix blends with the original rock, and the song is lent great power by the blend of featured artists, a combination of The Cure, Puscifer, Maynard James Keenan (of Tool fame), and the ever-beautiful vocal stylings of Milla Jovovich (credited in her singing capacity simply as Milla), who contributed the luscious "Rocket Collecting" to the original "Underworld" soundtrack.
"Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" opens with Puscifer, who again contributes a fine opening, followed up with lush new tracks from Deftones, AFI, Alkaline Trio, and William Control (featuring Matt Skiba). The swelling sounds of the opening slip into some generally good tracks that don't leave you wanting, leading up to Combichrist's masterful "Today We Are All Demons [Beneath the World Mix]."
"Rise of the Lycans" misses a beat after this with some fairly mediocre tracks - in particular the emo-styles of Drop Dead, Gorgeous as they contribute the generally whiny and annoying "Two Birds, One Stone." The album, however, jumps right back from this dangerous ledge that "Evolution" unfortunately fell from with King Black Acid, ending with the lovely "Steal My Romance" by Ghosts on the Radio.
In the end, Rise of the Lycans is a slightly darker, more industrial sound than the previous Underworld albums, but it is a 7-League-Boot stride greater than the "Evolution" soundtrack and more than lives up to the great example set by the original Underworld soundtrack album.

Wendy Carlos - Tron

Artist: Wendy Carlos
P: 2006
We're certainly both as surprised and as happy as most of you will be. Disney just contacted us out of the blue, and informed us that they were going to release a CD of my original music soundtrack to put out in conjunction with their new DVD edition of the 1982 motion picture, TRON. They asked if we had a digital stereo CD master available. The catch was that they needed the new master, like ... yesterday!
The first thought that came into my mind was: "The sleeping giant awakes...!", a scene from some childhood story in which everyone lives happily ever after. Yet it's true, this one has a happy ending. It was VERY short notice, a good example of the old hurry up and wait (or is it vice-versa this time, something like that...?), but we were well prepared. I've mentioned several times before that we had finally made excellent surround transfers of the music master tapes, recordings which had become unplayable in the late 80's (there's a story on a previous news page). We suggested that we include some bonus tracks, music that didn't make it to the final original LP and cassette for reasons of space. Those masters had to be found and transferred, too. Liner notes ("Looking Back on Tron") had to be written. Most important, the whole thing had to be mixed to stereo and mastered with the same 20-bit Hi-D care we give our latest series of albums on East Side Digital: the best the masters can sound, short of altering them in any way artistically.
Fortunately, the sound for TRON was more recent than many of the ESD remasterings, and didn't need so much manual cleanup and massaging of tiny ticks, bumps, hums, hisses and so forth, that have become only audible on the latest audio systems. So the process went smoothly if intensely during a marathon week of whirlwind production over the Thanksgiving holiday. Hey, how could I refuse this opportunity?
This was a friendly surprise, a positive way to celebrate the holiday season at the end of a trying year on more of an up beat. All TRON enthusiasts should take note of the in store date of January 29th for the soundtrack CD's of the first CGI feature motion picture (with some notable breakthroughs in the music, too). The sound is beyond anything you've heard before: sharp and vivid, not like all those lame, overpriced pirate editions that thieves have sneaked out to fill the CD void (all faked from LP and Cassette transfers -- ick!).
