5.0 out of 5 stars Best score ever? March 25 2011
Format:LP Record
I just got this and I forgot how much I love this score. Carpenter's a genius. Love the vintage synths and drum machines on vinyl.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical of Its Genre July 19 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of soundtracks driven by haunting tunes from electronic synthesizers, this one belongs in your CD collection. Very reminiscent of early Tangerine Dream soundtrack cuts (like the sexy train sequence in "Risky Business") that were typical from 1980 to 1986. Afficiados refer to this period as the "Virgin Years", and it is a by-gone era. You rarely hear this kind of music anymore -- although bits and pieces have been picked up and integrated into a newer musical form called "Trance." Composed by John Carpenter, my favorite on this CD is the Main Theme, followed by the entrance by the Duke.

5.0 out of 5 stars This score is a Carpenter classic. Jan. 8 2002
By Chadwick H. Saxelid - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After his famous Halloween theme, this score for his cult classic sci-fi actioner is probably Carpenter's best work. The now famous main title theme is terrific in and of itself, but The Duke Arrives and Police State/Romero and the President are just as strong. Carpenter fans, or just those who like quality synth tunes, will need no encouraging to buy this. Few composers know how to use the synthizer to its full effect, John Carpenter is at the very top of that short list. An essential for any Carpenter addict.

4.0 out of 5 stars escape from new york one of carpenter's finest Sept. 15 2001
By Jonathan Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really love this reissue, I have the Dagored vinyl reissue released in 2000. First this is a must for musicians that collect vintage synths and drum machines, I recognize some of the sounds from early 80's synths I have. Carpenter has taken soundtrack music to a new level and the fruits are represented on this record better than any other I feel. If you can find this issue of the vinyl it comes highly recommended. I think the record sounds much better than the reissue CD. Not to mention it comes with a full color movie poster of the Italian cut of the film "1997:Fuga Da New York". I think that in the near future people like John Carpenter and the Italian band Goblin will get their due as trailblazers of electronic music and soundtracks. "You Are The Duke!" Donald Pleasence
