Album Review

Horror and drama soundtracks are old hat for Christopher Young — having wielded the manuscript paper for such films as The Fly II, Copycat, and Rounders — and he's back on the scene, with a sweepingly dramatic (and sentimental?) chip on his shoulder, for 2007's Ghost Rider. Soaring French horns and ominous, low-register male choral bits provide the meat for the theme, while heavy metal guitars and drums punctuate the action sequences. When he lightens up, Young gets quite melodramatic, but that's par for the course in these comic-book-adapted films. All in all, even with the occasional detuned "chunk-chunk-chunking" in place, the score feels lighter than the subject matter. For a film concerning demonic pacts, treachery, and an antihero who cripples evildoers by inflicting them with the pain and suffering of their own victims, the soundtrack doesn't quite match up to the doom and gloom as much as it should. ~ J. Scott McClintock, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Great score, but where is SpiderBait?

I loved the score, it was really good, but where is the (Ghost) Riders in the Sky cover by SpiderBait? It's such an awesome song, I have no idea why they would choose to leave it off of the soundtrack. By the way, the first stunt song is Crazy Train by Ozzy.

"Ghost Riders in the Sky"

At the end credits of the movie, there was this new song called "Ghost Riders in the Sky," Why is it not on the soundtrack since it was in the movie while the two ghost riders were riding together? That's the only song I want in the soundtrack. That exact version please.

Ghost Riders in the Sky

The cover of Ghost Rider's in the Sky is by Spiderbait. This song is played over the end credits, but not included in the soundtrack, big mistake on the producer's part.
