more uniquely carpenterian synth-rock from the cinema veteran  - a record where analogue synth tones sparkle, pulsate & arpeggiate, meeting live drums, electric guitar licks & even some acoustic plucking.

having been rightfully returned to the forefront of the discussion of music & film's crucial intersection by 2015's 'lost themes', carpenter returns to show his imitators how horror synths are really done. “demonstrates the 68-year-old cult filmmaker’s enduring flair for minimalist instrumentalist that would ideally be paired with images of Adrienne Barbeau fleeing a Lovecraftian monster or Kurt Russell in an eyepatch.” - Uncut
