My Favourite Albums of 2016: #17 Steve Moore - The Mind's Eye OST

As I’ve already suggested, 2016 was an excellent year for instrumental and soundtrack albums, particularly those that are centred around creating atmosphere and texture to films or TV shows that have haunting or horrible goings on. Steve Moore is already widely known for his work with Zombi and here we find him flying solo with 33 electronic tracks that recall the likes of classic scary flicks by the likes of Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci and John Carpenter. If you loved the Stranger Things music, then this will be up your dark street. Moore uses modern technology to create eerie pieces of 80’s referencing music that bear some resemblance to work by Goblin, Tangerine Dream and Jean Michel Jarre. It’s a creepy, nervy and spacey sounding soundtrack, with just enough variety. It has been hailed, rightly so, as Moore’s best work to date. As for the film itself? Well I’ve not seen it, but judging by the reviews I’d stick with the album (!)
