Escape From New York
This is the John Carpenter soundtrack that stands above all others to me. It is pure and somewhat minimalist and sets a tone and mood better than any soundtrack in the last 20 years. There is no question where the story takes place and that this is not a feel good movie. To the point of his skill. This was a pinnacle where his talent was strong and raw and his tool kit wouldn't be full of many of the flourishes that would water down some of his later work. As a huge fan of the original release this gives greater scope to the effort with the extra tracks some of which are quite good. Some of it I could have done without and I'm not sure the added dialoge raises the enjoyability any. But still very glad to own this release.
