Holocaust 2000 / Sesso In Confessionale by Dominic Mann (May 21, 2006)
Grab your robes & holy water, itís Holocaust 2000 time. First off Beat's cover is one of the worst I've ever seen - ok so it's marginally more appealing than the covers provided by Cam but in truth what isn't. Unsurprisingly, for a movie about the Anti-Christ, Morricone has produced a score not unlike Goldsmithís The Omen and so you're right to expect the double whammy of orchestra and chorus though it's not on the same richter scale as employed by Goldsmith. If you donít have this in your collection, youíre not missing out like you would be if you say didnít have Exorcist 2 The Heretic. But if your bent is strolling through a cemetry or conducting a sťance and youíve tired of The Omen, then this contains the requisite chill factor. Beat Records has also served us up Sesso In Confessionale which was, according to the sleeve notes, a documentary 'about the common problems of sex.' Hereís the truth, I didnít notice too much difference between either scores. In fact Sesso is far creepier than Holocaust 2000 which makes you wonder how it was used in a documentary about sex. As a twofer itís a good deal Ė 35 tracks and 70 plus minutes of play time. Essential Morricone? No.
