It figures that Goblin's soundtrack to Dawn of the Dead (Zombi in Italy) would devour everything in its path. The opening tracks are ominous, synth-soaked prog, but "Torte in Faccia" is a goofy barroom piano pastiche, "Tirassegno" dips into bluegrass, and "Risveglio" is a lovely jazz etude; the tribal drumming of "Safari" wouldn't have sounded out of place at the Paradise Garage. It's an incredibly prescient record: "Ai Margini Della Folla" anticipates techno by nearly a decade, and "Oblio" offers a foretaste of post-rock. The eclecticism suits a film set in a shopping mall.
