I still don't know what to make of this score. On some level, it's awful. It's badly dated, it's annoying. On another level, it's perfect. Perhaps Michael Winner knew what he was doing when he chose Page to score Death Wish II and III. The brutal cynicism of the films, the exploitation streak, it was perfect ground for Page to pen some evil, menacing tracks. Bluesy, then synth-heavy, it's perhaps one of the better elements of what is easily the worst film of the series, a real accomplishment.
Oddly, Page's score to III has never been available, at least on CD. This is nowhere as good as the Herbock disc for the original Death Wish, which is a lot different than the music in the film.
This disc isn't available, and I'm still amazing it was ever available. Death Wish II is easily one of Cannon Films' low points, a downright nasty movie, dripping with cynicism, courtesy of super-hack director Michael Winner. Recommended for Bronson addicts, incidentally, as well as Page fans, Zeppelin fans, and fans of the tremendous artwork (like the blueprints).

Cool score to a exploitation thriller Jan. 1 2002
By Dave Felter - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The other reviews here are ostensibly by Page/Zeppelin fans, I am merely a Bronson/action-thriller fan, but I felt like chiming in because I love this soundtrack and have loved it for almost 20 years. Even as a teen first seeing 'DEATH WISH 2' I recognized it for what it really is, the sleaziest, nastiest, most depressing kind of exploitive junk ever shown in theaters, but you know what?, I still love it(!) It is after all, not without it's dubious charm. Unlike the first entry in the franchise, Bronson's character actually finds and punishes the hoods who violate his family, say what you want but that is pretty entertaining (in a base kind of way). Now on to the score-probably the best element of the film. Page combines bluesy rock songs with effectively creepy backround music to create a sense of menace, and he does it as well as any established film composer would've. The sequences involving Bronson preparing to do evil to others are given an extremely chilly vibe by Page who seemed to really tap into the character's violent mindset. Sort of a shame that Page hasn't done more filmwork considering how accomplished this job was. Finally on cd (I've had this on cassette and vinyl!) get this if you love Page, or you love interesting thriller music.

Jimmy Page -The Master Aug. 2 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This work is a very good example at how talented Jimmy Page is as both a guitar palyer, and composer. The Bone chilling sounds of swooping guitars and urgency of the chase scene music are both very well put together, I searched for this cd everywhere before finding it here and I have to say it was worth the wait. Great for any Jimmy Page fan, or anyone who likes strange and original soundtrack work.

Jimmy Page comes out jamming in his first post-Zep effort Sept. 5 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Death Wish 2 is Jimmy Page's first post-Zeppelin production. A large departure from the usual Zeppelin fare produced to date, Jimmy captures an urban funk feeling and surrounds it with his unique style of surrealness. Written to support a Bronson suspense thriller, the album is filled with tracks that evoke chills and tension. This is not to say that Jimmy doesn't flat out jam. Favorite is "Jam Sandwich" which drives from beginning to end. "Whose to Blame" with Chris Farlow on vocals preambles later work captured on "Outrider", very rough and bluesy. This album is a MUST HAVE for any die hard Page fan!!

Truly Evil Music from Page Aug. 10 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In the early 1970s, Jimmy Page was commissioned by occult film maker Kenneth Anger to produce a soundtrack for his Crowleyesque feature, "Lucifer Rising." After a well-publicized falling-out between the two Crowley devotees, these tapes were buried. After coming across a bootleg copy of this soundtrack, the linkages between Lucifer Rising and Death Wish II Soundtrack became evident. Page brings a bit more structure to his work for Anger and adds some straight ahead rockers to provide fans with a very interesting album. Some songs such as "Jam Sandwich" and "Big Band, Sax and Violence" are very funky and feature stellar soloing from Jimmy. All in all, a must-own album for hardcore Zep and Jimmy Page fans. This album is tremendously better than Outrider.
