La Planete Sauvage - Original Soundtrack by Alain Goraguer

Long renowned as one of the most dazzling and original animated films to burst forth from the European quarter, Its soundtrack is actually as celebrated as the beloved film from 1973, Re-issued on wax by J Saul Kane's DC recordings around the Millennium and again a few years back, this is the latest definitive version from crate diggers extraordinaire Superior Viaduct. This OST is a wicked, groovesome soupçon of styles with the emphasis on funk, orchestral and astral tones to create a true 70's space-face classic. Sampled to hell for generations, make sure you bag this if you've not indulged previously. In this age of lavish soundtrack fetishism, there's a handful that truly ARE indispensible and work as well away from the movie as with it.

8/10 Tom 23rd May 2018

Alain Goraguer's soundtrack to the cult 1973 French/Czechoslovakian animated film Fantastic Planet (or La Planete Sauvage if you're feeling fancy), is a wonderfully weird, funky and sumptuous companion to the strange tale of humans living on a planet among giant human-like aliens.

With more than a slight nod to the likes of David Axelrod, the orchestral score makes extensive use of harpsichord, mellotron, funky bass, and some slightly porno-guitar wah-ing. The main musical theme of the album repeats throughout with subtle variations in tempo and intensity but there are enough moments of drama to keep things interesting. Bonus fact: keen-eared hip hop fans will recognize that this is where Madlib got his beat for the Quasimoto track 'Come on Feet.'
