Hans Zimmer seems to be the man to go to these days for blockbuster films from the mind of Christopher Nolan, & Interstellar has plenty of the Zimmer trademarks he is known for. Wonderful atmospheric & powerful, this score evokes the huge scale of the film & vast emptiness of space & while not quite as dramatic & dark as 'Inception' it still serves to compliment the film perfectly. The church organ section using the organ in Temple church London is haunting & draws the listener deep into the film, in some ways this passage reminds me of Mike Oldfields 'Tubular Bells'. The vinyl package is especially good, gatefold sleeve with a wonderful full width colour still from the movie inside & a colour booklet about the score writing process & production. It is also I think good value being a double disc & cut to 180grams so it has that gorgeous heavyweight full depth sound quality so evident in 180gram pressings today. For the serious score collector this is an absolute 'must have'
For me, Interstellar is one of those movies that just does everything for me. I love the cast, the characters, the setting but most of all - the soundtrack.
This soundtrack came as a two disc vinyl. The cover art on the outside is off Endurance entering the anomaly, the cover art on the rear is off the cooper house. What the photos fail to show is the inner 2 page art work which gave me the chills looking at it. Opening up the vinyl treats you to a double page art work of the space crafts landing at Millars planet in the water - beautiful. The vinyl cover sleeve has a lovely gloss finish and comes with some pages of information about the behind the scenes and about the music and instruments used - a very interesting read.
The sound quality from the vinyl is noticeably better than that of CD and digital. Just set the record on your turntable, sit back, and let the music take you. 10/10
I have to say I absolutely love the sound track to the film Interstellar. I normally listen to it via Spotify, but I also have a love for Vinyl so all the albums I really like I buy on vinyl. So this is no different for me, it is a lovely gatefold duel LP it feels very high quality and also has an interesting insert which talks about the making of the OST.
The only shame really is it has 1 of 3 of my favourite tracks from the CD/Spotify version, I think Mountains, Coward & Detach are the cream of the crop, but it also has others which are not included in the digital versions. *Edit I tell a lie, they just have different names
1) Dreaming of the crash 2) Cornfield Chase 3) Dust 4) Day one 5) Message from home 6) Stay 7) The Wormhole 8) Afraid of time 9) A place among the stars 10) No time for caution 11) Murph 12) Detach 13) Running out 14) Tick Tock 15) Where we're going 16) Do not go gentle into that good night
Wow! What an album! I absolutely love this soundtrack...one of my favourites! Labeling is a little confusing. Took me a while to figure out that "Side A, B, C and D" is all written in morse code. It's a cool addition. And I was very sad at first because I thought they left out the song "Mountains", but it turns out they renamed it to "Tick Tock", so I was happy to find that song. Overall, a very very good purchase! Would thoroughly recommend this album! Best way to listen to it is on full volume... My house keeps shaking every time I play it!
Absolutely stunning soundtrack, epic scale-just the thing to give your hifi a good workout! This is one of the best albums I have ever bought, it is truly spine tingling! Sounds amazing on 180g vinyl, warm but richly detailed and powerful-a 'velvet hammer', if you like!
