Boomkat Product Review:
The legendary director / composer achieves the milestone of his debut solo album with 'Lost Themes' for Sacred Bones. For the first time, after directing and scoring 15 films - including stone cold classics such as Halloween, The Fog, Assault on Precinct 13 - he lets the listener conjure their own imagery to accompany his signature mix of thrumming synth arpeggios and dramatic guitar solos in nine newly written 'Lost Themes'. It's likely to be loved by collectors of '80s synth horror soundtracks, especially if you have a high tolerance for overblown production... However, the remixes fare much better, with Silent Servant turning 'Vortex' into a proper, gothic EBM charge, and PAN boss Bill Kouligas making a rare remix appearance with the swarming harmonic convolutions of his 'Fallen' transformation.
