Revelation 3D (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Composer: Jeff Danna (with songs by Akira Yamaoka)
Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Available 18 December 2012

In Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever...

Jeff Danna's (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Resident Evil: Apocalypse) score for the latest Silent Hill movie is a little hit and miss. It's not that the score is bad - far from it. It's just that there are a few too many tracks that are atmospheric filler material. These no doubt add much ambiance to the finished movie, but sound a little dull when listened to in their own right.

Personal highlights include 'Early Birthday Present' and 'Lost Souls' (in fact this was the only theme that I instantly recognised as Danna's trademark style); the atmospheric theme that is at the heart of 'Vincent Condemned'; 'Born and Raised In Silent Hill' and 'The Carousel/Red Pyramid Battles the Missionary.'

The album lasts for 1 hr, 05 min, 24 sec and contains 14 tracks. The last two - 'Rain of Brass Petals Three Voices Edit' and 'Silent Scream' - are interesting hard rock tracks by Akira Yamaoka.

While not an essential purchase, there are enough interesting tracks to make it worth seeking out.
