Product Description:

Original score composed by Hans Zimmer.
Personnel: Dominic Kelly (oboe).
The start of the soundtrack to the blockbuster sequel to SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, conventionally enough for a horror movie soundtrack, is all brooding strings and Edgar Allen Poe tolling bells--and a suitably chilling voiceover courtesy the film's star, Sir Anthony Hopkins. It segues nicely into the delicate "Aria da capo" from Bach's Goldberg Variations, played by the equally chilling (to some) Glenn Gould.
From then on we're propelled into the sonic equivalent of Hannibal Lecter's twisted psyche, signified by grinding electronica, leavened only somewhat by the macabre "Gourmet Valse Tartare," which conjures visions of meals taken without the full approval of the main courses thereof. Atonal orchestral passages punctuated by stabs of electronic percussion ensue, closely pursued by long, fugue--like pieces that masterfully invoke an atmosphere of foreboding and dread. Unusually for a soundtrack album, HANNIBAL is more that capable of standing alone as a set worthy of interest to the casual listener--and, dare one say it, even to vegetarians.
