    Soundtrack Alley: Aliens

    Soundtrack Alley: Aliens

    The eighth episode of SOUNDTRACK ALLEY here on CINEMATIC SOUND RADIO is a discussion between Erik Woods and Randy Andrews about the film and score to the 1986 James Cameron written and directed science fiction/action classic, ALIENS. It is the sequel to the 1979 science fiction horror film ALIEN. Set in the far future, the film stars Sigourney Weaver as Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, the sole survivor of an alien attack on her ship. When communications are lost with a human colony on the moon on which her crew first encountered the alien creatures, Ripley agrees to return to the site with a troop of colonial marines to investigate. The film also stars features Michael Biehn, Paul Reiser, Lance Henriksen, and Carrie Henn in supporting roles.


    The original score for the film was composed and conducted by James Horner, performed by The London Symphony Orchestra and recorded by the legendary Eric Tomlinson.  The original soundtrack recording was released on Varese Sarabande Records in 1986 and was expanded by the same label in 2001.


    On the program you'll hear Randy and Erik talk about various topics including when they first saw the film, its use of practical special effects, the production design, the sound design, how disrespected the music was in the film, accusations of Horner self-plagiarism, Horner's ridiculously short composing schedule, writing "Bishop's Countdown" essentially overnight, the use of "Resolution" in Die Hard, the "Alien Stinger", a detailed breakdown of six essential cues from the score and much more.

On the air since 1996, and it shows!

Mr Woods' professionalism and complete lack of snobbery elevates the show to one of the absolute best podcasts for orchestral score-lovers. Cinematic Sounds does not let even the most obscure mediums or unappreciated movies fly under the radar if there's a good score behind them; all pieces featured get the same professional yet sincere treatment. The show is informative, but never to the point of being excessively chatty.

Great for finding new orchestral composers and even the occasional underrated movie and game.

The best film music show

Cinematic Sound Radio is the best show about film music. 

As a major fan and supporter of this genre I have learned much from this shows. The quality is always top-notch. Even life-long soundtrack fans will find new gems to enjoy from this rich archive presenting highlights from every genre and style. The decades of shows will never leave you lacking for new material to enjoy. Each score is introduced with a comprehensive information about its development, composition, history, impact, and legacy. This show is for those who want a casual listening experience, audiophiles wishing to enrich their music selections, and soundtrack enthusiasts wanting to gain a new perspective on favorite scores.

The best score podcast

Erik does a fantastic job creating the music suites, and provides just enough information without upstaging the music. Whether you’re a new or long-time score fan, every episode of Cinematic Sound Radio is a delight.
