Buy it... if you want a blazingly unique superhero score for massive orchestral ensemble, gothic chorus, and modern industrial guitars, bass, and percussion.

Avoid it... if the domination of the score's majority by its industrial elements, led by overwhelming electric guitars, isn't worth 20+ minutes of more conventional and grand gothic style.

Ghost Rider: (Christopher Young) The story of Johnny Blaze has taken almost an eternity for Columbia Pictures to release on the big screen, with Nicolas Cage signed on to the title role many years ago and countless delays ensuing for a variety of reasons. Left in the cold since 2001 have been fans of the Marvel Comic, a source of inspiration that the film is reportedly very faithful to. The opening of the movie rides quickly though the circumstances of Blaze's deal with the devil, losing his soul to save a loved one, and then being forced to obey that evil when asked to hunt down the demons conspiring with the devil's son to control the world. The battle between Blaze's "Ghost Rider" alter ego and those demons is the fun part that the film details with great style, and the final year-long delay in the film's post-production process alone allowed the special effects artists plenty of time to dazzle. Composer Christopher Young is no stranger to franchise-style horror and action, with the genre defining some of the best material in his career; later this year, he is signed to fully take the Spider-Man reigns from Danny Elfman. The world of Ghost Rider is different, however, because, as Young states, "it's just a very dark storyline" and "had to have gothic in it." Since the location of the story exists outside of the cities, Young's first inclination was to create a gothic Western, though with the incorporation of guitar performances by two members of the Nine Inch Nails, "the score ended up more industrial than Western." Young is proud of the effort because the resulting mass of "cool evil" in the Ghost Rider score is a step beyond anything he's ever written before.
