Hard to believe that composer Jay Chattaway went on to fame with the music to the Star Trek Next Generation television series...but some of his earliest and best work was for Bill Lustig's grimy MANIAC film. Chattaway's electronic cues help ground the maniacs unstable frame of mind (obsessing over his dead mother) with lush, almost subtle pieces before laying on the more schizo sequences...revving up the intensity musically. It's a great all-around score that is minimal but very effective. It's great to finally have this on vinyl in an edition that doesn't raid your wallet.
