At what point does one become a ripper? Not that I’m considering it as a career choice of course. I’m just wondering what extra stuff you have to do to get the accolade.
In the latest of Death Waltz's attempt to issue vinyl of every single film ever made (next week it's the turn of 'Drop Dead Fred') this is a wonderful soundtrack, mixing funky discofied beats with beautiful downbeat passages full of suspense and intrigue. The main melody which drifts through several tracks has a Bacharach-like melancholy to it. On ‘Phone Call’ it's led by soft flute and reverbed sax and at times, incredibly, it descends almost towards Talk Talk style jazzy melancholy. ‘New York One Night’ is pure New York 70’s glitter ball cheese, ‘Puertorico Club’ is a latin work out while ‘New York Day..One More Day’ is slinky downtown New York Jazz.
8/10 Andrew Customer review, 7th February 2015
Really enjoyed this pressing of the Ripper of NYC, I've not actually seen the film, but the music here is pretty cool. Nice cross section of mellow soundscapes, disco grooves and latin funk workouts, probably some stabby action takes place in an alley behind a bar or club or something. However don't let the thought of all that bad murder stuff put you off, this stands up as a decent piece of music in its own right, you of course get the lush packaging that Death Waltz have made their signature style. Tune in, freak out and let rip.
