Like Hallowe'en...only better!

Advantages: It's a work of genius!
Disadvantages: It's taken too long to come out.

Carpenter himself regards this score as among his best. Which is true. While Hallowe'en had all the right atmospheric connotations for the film it complimented, The Fog is actually a very chilling score. It stands out by itself, to the point where the ...

A Clockwork Orange - The Way Wendy Wanted It

Advantages: Highly original realisation, still sounds fresh today
Disadvantages: None

I first encountered Wendy Carlos' brilliant electronic realisation of Beethoven's Ninth symphony (entitled "March From A Clockwork Orange") way back in the early 1970's, when a clip from the movie was shown on the BBC's "Film Night” (the part where ...

Track No. 8, "Overture to the Sun" is composed by Terry Tucker

Advantages: Wendy/Walter Carlos' treatments of Purcell, Beethoven, and her own compositions are inspired
Disadvantages: Two tracks on the soundtrack CD are not Wendy Carlos; they need to be properly credited

The Potless review, "A Clockwork Orange - The Way Wendy Wanted It" is a good review and well written. However, there is one glaring mis-credit - track #8, is titled Orange Minuet and is attributed to Wendy Carlos. In fact, track #8 of the original film so ...

Quirky, Catchy Album

Advantages: Fun filled rock n roll from a groundbreaking musical
Disadvantages: Some explicit content so not suitable for children

Well after watching the movie, I had to buy the soundtrack. Most songs from the film are on it, except Wise Up, Janet Weiss and Sword of Damocles (unfortunately!). Also, there is a fairly decent remix of the Time Warp which is worth a listen. For those ...

Vietnam meets Wagner

Advantages: Great choice of tracks to accompany the film
Disadvantages: No Beatles (revoution/helter skelter etc!!)

You have to admire Francis Coppola's nerve - using everything in his record collection from The Doors to Richard Wagner to accompany his breathtaking vision of the Vietnam war on acid. From the opening scene, with his brilliant use of Morrison's 'The End ...
