Retro Spins: Against All Odds
Against All Odds opens on a sprawling space station, but the audience doesn't know it. Robots flicker to life, ejecting from ports along the wall. The camera pans to a large tinted window. the sun reflects across it from outside. The camera draws in closer, then pans down to show the Earth resting in orbit below...
I mean, maybe that's how it starts. I don't know. I've never seen it.
The soundtrack features a ton of artist I really like; Phil Collins, Stevie Nicks, Peter Gabriel, Big Country and Mike Rutherford. However, even then it doesn't necessarily blow me away. With the exception of the title song from Collins, the rest of the album is pretty sub par.
It doesn't help that six of the twelve tracks are reserved for the score. Mind you, I don't necessarily hate instrumental or score music in general. It just wasn't something I was particularly in the mood for when I fired this album up for a spin.
Sigh...I really need to dig through my soundtrack collection here. These past three have been kind of duds, and I really want to hear something fantastic.
