Alien: Resurrection
John Frizzell

Review

There is nothing quiet like an Alien movie to get the heart pounding, and Alien: Resurrection is (in this respect at least) not different from the movies it follows. Some big names have scored the music for these SciFi horror flicks: Goldsmith, Horner and Goldenthal. Frizzell joins this august company with the most visually stunning of all four Alien movies.

The score is everything you could hope it would be: dark, brooding and laced with tension. Great for science fiction adventures that need a bit of kick in them, even better for late night roleplaying sessions. There is a wide musical canvas to choose from: brooding, dark, mysterious, tense and heart pounding to name a few. There is the whole smattering of human emotion here.

My favourite track would have to be the opening titles, which typify the movie as a whole. All in all, a great science fiction score which is a must have for roleplaying.

Overall, a good score but short and loud.
