Album Review

Dune was never going to be an easy film to score. Dense, overreaching, and confusing, David Lynch's interpretation of the canon of Frank Herbert surely didn't leave many stylistic decisions strolling in through the front door. Yet despite the soft rock pabulum of its past, Toto constructed a luxuriant and peculiar soundtrack that injects Dune with a barren majesty the film often failed to create on its own. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra lends these peculiar compositions a much-needed precision. Brian Eno helps out with the haunting synth hymns of "Prophecy Theme." Remarkably, Dune is perhaps the only Lynch film where one could not wish the discovery of Angelo Badalamenti to have come sooner. Equally prescient horror and throwback to Hollywood epics of old — there is nothing else to imagine but the organic, spiritual futurism of the film itself.

Toto and Dune

To say Lynch was over-reaching or Toto underachieved is to misunderstand the magnitudes of the task: Whilst some of the tracks, such as the the Robot Fight and The Floating Fat Man, are harsh - to merely pass by and scoff at the Trip to Arrakis, Leto's Theme, Paul Meets Chani and even Take My Hand is to pass by some of not merely the most eclectic (trite description), but some of the most soothing and harmonically enchanting music ever produced. And yes, it is produced - and possibly unrepeatable in a live and unplugged setting. Alongside Vangelis The Bouty, Bladerunner, Chariots of Fire and some of his other pieces stands Dune the standard, and the re-mastered soundtrack. That is right.

Great 80s electronica

The music for this film is beautiful, full stop.

Great Underappreciated Soundtrack

Probably cos it's from one of the 80's biggest flops - this is a fantastic soundtrack provides the movie with the rousing energy and majesty it sorely lacked. A big shame Toto never did more, as this debut effort is terrific.

The original members of Toto were L.A.-based session men who had played with everyone from George Benson to Boz Scaggs and wanted to create something they could call their own. They scored a hit straight out of the gate with the album rock hit "Hold the Line" from their 1978 debut. Their biggest success, however, came in the early '80s with a pair of smash hits, "Rosanna" and "Africa," plus the breakout, six-Grammy success of the Toto IV album. The band endured some major personnel shake-ups over...
