Did a search and couldn't find an existing thread on this terrific score so I had to start one. Bought this disc in the '90s and played it a lot at the time but hadn't listened to it in a while so I du it out and put it on. What a beautiful and melancholic score. Love the sororities Young achieves using string orchestra and string quartet. It's an exquisitely scored film as well IMO.
Oh, it's one of my favourites too. Beautiful. The development of the main theme has a kind of James Horner-ish feel to it. Long-lined and unusually resolved. I think there was a time when Young was very heavily influenced by Horner. People will probably make a joke about that, but I hear a lot of Hornerisms in a few of his earlier scores. Goldsmith too, of course. And in HELLBOUND (was that HELLRAISER 2?) it's as if he's channelling Horner, but a Goldsmith-channelled Horner.
If that didn't make any sense, it doesn't matter. MURDER IN THE FIRST is great.
