Surprised this goes for a lot, its also kind of annoying since this is my favorite movie and I can't really buy the soundtrack because of those high prices.

Not even David Cronenberg movies are safe from discogs prices...

Howard Shore has written many fantastic scores, like "The Silence of the Lambs" or "Seven", but his best are the ones for David Cronenberg. Like Videodrome. This is his only purely synthesized score, and it's great. Like the film it is disturbing and extremely dark. And it's unique. The music appears to be rather simple: there's a bassline, there's an organ, there are electronic noises and breathing sounds. This does not explain what it does to me, though. I mean, Shore is a genius, achieving with limited means what others wouldn't get done with three computers, six samplers and twenty synths. This is no easy stuff on the album, it's even abrasive and really noisy at times, but for heaven's sake-check it out!
The first track is a perfect opening for the album-it's a music-and-sound-effects-track and contains some disturbing vocal samples-and it's so deep, very deep, as deep as the whole album. Also check "801 A/B"(oh, what a great name!), the best presentation of the film's main theme. And there's "Pins and Needles", a track that will break your heart. Pain and pleasure, indivisible.
