If possible, the music for this second installment of the Omen legacy is even edgier than it's predicessor.
Instead of starting out soft and growing gradually louder as it did in the first film, the main theme begins at full throat, supported by a persistant downtreading of horns and strings that give the impression that the evil isn't just coming, it's here.
As was mentioned on the official review, the theme for this album is a direct derivative of the "Ave Santani" in the first film. John Williams applied the same technique in his "Star Wars" recordings. In "Episode 4: A New Hope" we were introduced to "Leia's Theme", which was then varied into "Han Solo and the Princess" for "Empire Strikes back, and then transposed again to create "Luke and Leia" for "The Return of the Jedi".
It is this thematic progression that makes film music so interesting. We sense in these twisting threads that the little boy isn't so little any more. He has developed into one purpose, and he will destroy anyone who stands in his way.
