    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    One of the reasons I love Akira is the soundtrack, excellent stuff, especially this:

  2. Maurice Picarda

    Maurice Picarda Actually, might as well flounce.

    Much has been said of the strumpets of yore
    Of wenches and bawdy-house queens by the score
    But I sing of a baggage that we all adore -
    The landlord's daughter!
    no-no, Reno and Ground Elder like this.
  3. TitanSound

    TitanSound Mr Beardy Drummer

    Anything by Lalo Schifrin, including, Enter the Dragon, Bullit and Dirty Harry.

    The Dark Knight has a cool score also.

    o brother where art thou? was something of a gamechanger for me (and for a lot of people - the recent interest in bluegrass owes it a huge debt imo).

    otherwise, morricone all the way. herbie hancock's soundtrack work is ace too.

    Yeah it's Casualty shorthand for violent man, as far as I can tell. Good to see that, twenty years since I first watched it, they haven't got any more subtle about blatantly signposting what's coming up next.

    i think the film has many MANY flaws but the soundtrack is near perfect.

    requiem for example is a aural representation of the final battle between humanity (the bikers) (represented by festival music showcased in kanada's theme ) those awakened by science (represented by the type of music in tetsuo's theme ) and those who achieve power through spiritual means (Shohmyoh)

    the soundtrack tells more of the story than the film does. the film hardly get to explore the religious aspects of the struggle all you really get is a cameo or two.

    i'm not going to say the film is bad just i can't ever watch it without considering what it could have been. the soundtrack on the other hand i have no such complaints about hence my positioning the soundtrack above the film

    Kid_Eternity "You might be a lord but here comes the king."

    I think it's one of the greatest sci fi films ever, I've read the comics and aren't bothered by 'what could have been' because what is great!
