Goblin is best known for their movie scores, like Suspiria and Profondo Rosso (Deep Red), but with Roller, these guys can prove they can make great music without the help of a movie. The title track has a nice theme with some sinister pipe organ, which would work great in a horror film (which is what they specialized in to begin with). "Aquaman" starts off more relaxed with electric piano, and Moog from Claudio Simonetti, before it goes into a more rock-oriented passage. "Snip Snap" is a rather funky number, with lots of clavinet and Moog and some jazzy electric piano passages. "Goblin" proves they can do an extended piece, and it's just simply amazing! Even the drum solo doesn't weaken it. It's full of great themes, some fantastic, and at times funky jams. For some reason or another, the band never thought too fondly of this album, which I can't understand why, as I feel this is one of their best releases. This is a great place to start if you don't know Goblin. This was the first Goblin album I ever tried, and I don't regret it.
