Classic Original Soundtrack by Queen- Flash Gordon

Let's not forget that Queen's guitarist Brian May did the original MAD MAX soundtrack, too. Both are very different approaches to very popcorn-type movies. Subtle details throughout the emotional swelling and guitar screams. Excellent woven moodscaping using 9-volt battery guitar pedal effects, something that I feel Jimmy Page nailed in his Death Wish 2 score. Nowadays (except for Hans Zimmer and Trent Reznor) not a whole lot of interesting film score approaches happening with big movie productions, as they are unfortunately more focused - and paid hefty- on the big giant 3 second 'boom' scares. yawn = boring. bye.
