Last week, I promised you guys another dose of Jerry Goldsmith. Well, here it is, another treasure from the Illogical Contraption Vault of Insanity... The score to Ridley Scott's 1979 sci-fi/horror masterpiece Alien!!!
If you know Mr. Goldsmith's work at all, you already know what to expect: Top-notch, triumphant, dynamic, orchestral wizardry. This guy's catalog is a veritable museum of film classics, from horror to sci-fi to fantasy to drama to comedy and back. Alien is one of his best.
