Buy it... if you appreciate B-rate orchestral space opera scores in all their robust glory, featuring in this case one incredible melodic track by Frederic Talgorn.

Avoid it... if you've always been dissatisfied with Talgorn's work in this genre because of the very fact that his glorious themes aren't consistently employed throughout his scores.

Heavy Metal 2000: (Frederic Talgorn) Let's face it; no matter what excuses the makers of Heavy Metal 2000 conjured for the existence of this pseudo-sequel, the film exists to take advantage of a target demographic that appreciates seeing exposed and massive mammary melons on an animated woman whose mission it is to kick ass across the known universe. Don't expect as many connections between Heavy Metal 2000 and the cult classic 1981 film Heavy Metal as there are between the animated sequel and the original French illustrated concept in adult magazines. The popularity of the sequel appealed to a midnight small venue kind of audience and, as you might expect when trying to win over mainstream critics with terms like "Federation Assigned Ketogenic Killzone" and frequent nudity, Heavy Metal 2000 made very little impact in the entertainment industry. One aspect that was very prominent in both Heavy Metal films was contemporary music, and the sequel once again made use of extensive song placements. Replacing Elmer Bernstein for the assignment of the score, however, was Frederic Talgorn, a very strong match for this kind of production. A veteran of producing scores for such B-rate science fiction and action films as Fortress and Robotjox, Talgorn had been known by a wider audience at the time for his conducting of spectacular re-recordings of famous modern film music themes under contract by the Varèse Sarabande label. For his original works, Talgorn is a talented artist with a knack for the employment of a full orchestra to create rousingly melodic soundtracks. His scores of the genre often feature loud and heroic brass-dominated themes, along with a substantial level of bombast throughout their lengths. Talgorn usually composed his works of the 1990's from his native European continent, acquiring the assistance of the region's symphonic ensembles to perform his scores, and Heavy Metal 2000 was created very much along similar lines. In this case, the group is the Munich Symphony Orchestra, and their performances resonate with the usual metallic sensibilities and tougher edge common to Eastern European recordings of Talgorn's work of the era.

NOTES AND QUOTES
The insert includes a short note from Talgorn that reveals little about the score. The packaging is noteworthy for its pictures of the nasty and naked lead woman being dragged around, taking showers, and cutting off heads with swords and various other lethal weapons.
