9/10 Mike Staff review, 15 October 2013

What a treat! The 2LP soundtracks to George Romero’s ‘Day Of The Dead’ just hit our office, with one LP on lurid yellow and the other on a spooky green marble. It’s in a chunky thick gatefold with lengthy liner notes from the Romero and composer John Harrison as well. This label Waxwork did a great job on the recent 'Re-Animator' repress so any of you who got that one will be confident in the quality of this one.

The score is a lengthy one, and often more lighthearted than one might expect from such an iconic ‘80s zombie flick, with the pulsating Carpenter-esque scares sharing the stage for lengthy tension building exercises and the occasional bit of light relief, all vividly captured in bright ‘80s synths. It’s quite melodic too, and some of the big swelling synth chords keep bringing to mind (but not in a bad way) the ‘80s-aping soundtrack for the meticulously observed cult TV horror parody 'Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace', although it seems almost dismissive to compare a work on this scale to mere satire...it’s a true classic synth score which admirers of Carpenter, Frizzi, Perilstein et al will be delighted to add to their collection. I certainly am.
