EDITORS’ NOTES

Writer/director/composer John Carpenter is the auteur behind such b-movie classics as Halloween, The Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China. His "Halloween Theme" is one of the most recognizable pieces of music in cinema. While Lost Themes is the 67-year-old visionary's first studio album, fans of his work will find these songs instantly familiar. Carpenter's hallmarks are all here: screeching analog synths, ominous arpeggios, gaseous clouds of spooky noise. The harrowing "Obsidian" is a mini-movie in itself, and "Purgatory" gets especially weird with its live drums and hammered pianos. The remixes apply this sonic palette to various techno and dubstep beats.

I can just sit back and let it roll over me

Boogie Girl

Most albums I only like one or two tracks. This one I can play through, sit back and just let the music roll over me. Favorite tracks are the driving Vortex and the mysterious Purgatory.
