Ghost Rider [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - J. Scott McClintock
Horror and drama soundtracks are old hat for Christopher Young -- having wielded the manuscript paper for such films as The Fly II, Copycat, and Rounders -- and he's back on the scene, with a sweepingly dramatic (and sentimental?) chip on his shoulder, for 2007's Ghost Rider.
