Cho Young-Wuk's standout soundtrack gets a deluxe pressing for RSD! The Korean composer has scored nearly 50 films, but Old Boy was the film that really launched his career. The dark mood conjured here perfectly fits Park Chan-Wook's cult revenge film - sad trumpets wail into the night, strings descend into misery, and cellos emphasize loss and despair. Touches of John Carpenter and Hans Zimmer add a sense of melancholy over much of the music, giving a sense of pain and anguish that the main character goes through on his quest for the truth. This Record Store Day pressing is presented on double colored vinyl (translucent blue + green), complete with gatefold jacket, printed fold-out insert, and obi strip.
