Psycho [Complete Original Motion Picture Score]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Varese's original soundtrack to Psycho finds Joel McNeely conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra through Bernard Herrmann's classic original score. This album is the first time the entire score has been recorded for an album and its remarkable how eerie and evocative the music is, even when its separated from the film. Psycho stands as one of Herrmann's finest moments, and even if many collectors and film buffs would prefer the original soundtrack recording, this version is essential for fans of the composer, since it is the clearest, cleanest edition of score yet produced.

    Superb!

    A terrific soundtrack for one of Hitchcock's best films. The arrangements are excellent and the music itself is both haunting and captivating. It doesn't sound exactly like the original film score, but it's the closest and most precise score out there. Trust me it sounds extremely close to the real thing, so close that most people won't be able to tell the difference. Those with an acute ear for music will no doubt hear a few slight differences. This is one of the best film scores ever released. Buy this album, you won't be sorry.
