Lost Themes II

The musical world of Lost Themes II is also a wider one than that of its predecessor. More electric and acoustic guitar help flesh out the songs, still driven by Carpenter's trademark minimal synth. This manifests itself brilliantly in songs like lead single Distant Dream, which hitches a familiar Carpenterian beat to an expressive drum performance and rides it to a thrilling conclusion. The eerie Angels Asylum lets an ethereal synth line command the first three-quarters of the song, before turning over the melody to an acoustic guitar, and Virtual Survivor delivers a blast of the sci-fi menace that characterized his great scores for films like Assault on Precinct 13 and They Live. Lost Themes II delivers eleven compelling new tracks for which fans can continue to score the movies in their minds.
