This is seriously a soundtrack I've been dying to get. I've grown up with both the music and movies by John Carpenter, but There's Something In The Fog that makes it the best soundtrack of them all. Carpenter is well known for his awesome semi-progressive synthesizer scores, but on this one he really manages to capture the restless and gloomy atmosphere.
Pressed on high quality 180 gram golden vinyl, this release is aptly titled "Blake's Gold Edition" - a reference to none other than the original film's evil ghost. The packaging and artwork is sheer DWRC quality, with awesome original artwork by Dinos Chapman and surprisingly interesting liner notes by John Carpenter.
This is a must-get collector's edition of a must-get soundtrack for every horror and prog fan. Get it and watch out for Blake's revenge!
