Think Italian prog band scoring an Italian horror movie and you're going to think Goblin. But you could also think Libra, the group behind the 401st Soundtrack of the Week, the score for Mario Bava's Shock.

The music isn't very much like Goblin, despite similar instrumentation and context.

There are lush synth atmospheres and propulsive electric bass. Keyboard has more of a voice than guitar, though "L'Atalena Rossa" is an exceptionally pretty acoustic guitar cue.

There are also several numbers of pure mood, like the creepy "L'Incubo.".

Fans of Goblin who also like their more amorphous music from Suspiria are likely to enjoy this.
