Apocalypse Now

Artist: 
Coppola, Carmine and Francis Coppola
Format: 
CD
Rating: 
9/10

Not so much a soundtrack as it is an abridged version of the movie that you can listen along with, the double CD Apocalypse Now focuses on narration and dialogue instead of music. Sure there's "Ride of the Valkyries" and that stupid (aren't they all) Doors song, but for the most part the atmospheric synth sounds are limited to background here and there. That's okay by me. I love the movie and this soundtrack evokes the same dreamy and poetic quality of the film in an auditory format—a headphones record if ever there was one.
