I also agree. This is a fantastic score. The main title is as macabre as it gets, but the lovely "Edie's Theme" is a knockout. If readers want to treat themselves to a classic film score for the holidays, this is it!
One of my all-time favourite suspense scores ever since I bought the album way back when. I do agree, though, it really sounds like it influenced John Williams and that's not a bad thing. It's my favourite Andre Previn score....and this CD should have sold more. It really deserves it. (I'm not getting paid to say this).
Thanks for the tip Lukas. This is a title I always wanted to order, but somehow I postponed every time. It will be now part of my next SAE order for sure (still waiting for the previous one to arrive! )
