9/10 Mike Staff review, 25 April 2014

I've already been having a bit of a gripe this morning about the overpriced soundtrack reissues that are flooding into our shop, with Mondo's new 'The Omen' reissue costing a wallet-lightening £30. Well this one isn't much cheaper but in terms of getting your money's worth I think it's a more satisfying package, with nice thick card sleeve with a built-in mini booklet with notes from George Romero and John Harrison, an art print and coloured vinyl. Furthermore the pressing here does the music justice, despite it being coloured vinyl everything's coming through loud and clear with no surface noise. Call me a stickler but I think if you're laying down upwards of £20 for an LP then this is the kind of quality you should expect.

It's not a soundtrack I've heard before, and in fact has never been released until now because the tapes were long thought lost, so technically it's not even a reissue despite being older than I am. They have clearly survived in remarkable condition and are beautifully mastered for vinyl here. The music is superb, it's a series of quite short tracks - 34 in total - but the little vignettes flow together nicely in a cavalcade of synth chills that never gets dull. Lots of spooky analogue synth sci-fi type effects in places, a bit of a B-movie feel but never cheap-sounding, fairly similar stylistically to Michael Perilstein's score to 'The Deadly Spawn'.

It's clear that a lot of care and attention has gone into doing this properly. Waxwork haven't disappointed me yet.

10/10 Dermot Customer review, 25th April 2014

This soundtrack has been available on vinyl before! Sorry Mike :) It came out on the Varèse Saraband label back in '82. I know because I actually have that copy! The tracks though were made to flow as a suite which meant there was only 9 tracks altogether. This new one seems to be split up so you can easily access the individual pieces. Anyway it is an absolute stonker with killer bass from the Prophet V, which, incidentally, the entire music was composed on. The special sfx are a treat too. No hesitation. Just buy it!
