5 stars Goblin have become the masters of Moog-rock (and more importantly, Italian Symphonic Prog) with the soundtrack for SUSPIRIA. Dario Argento collaborated with the soundtrack to this film (he advised the use of the buzuki). Unlike what other people have been saying, the main theme (also called "SUSPIRIA") does not have a resemblance to "TUBULAR BELLS" ("PROFONDO ROSSO", on the other hand, does). Claudio Simonetti's chants and shouts during the main theme ("La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la" and "WITCH!!!! WITCH!!!!") are very much infamous AND famous. Only two themes, "BLACK FOREST" and "BLIND CONCERT", don't make it into the movie, although I don't see a reason why not. (It might be because Argento and Simonetti decided to not include those two in the movie, but we'll never know.) All the others ("SUSPIRIA", "WITCH", "OPENING TO THE SIGHS" (in the credits only), "SIGHS", "MARKOS" (which came from Phillip Glass' "MUSIC IN SIMILAR MOTION") and "DEATH VALSER") made it into the film unscathed (well, in snippets, but they made it into the final product). The soundtrack I have is the one that is in the SUSPIRIA 3-disc set (2 DVDs (The film and the Documentary) and 1 CD [the soundtrack with three added tracks]). A must-have for any GOBLIN fan (LIKE ME!) or any Prog-Rock fan. 5 STARS!
