Stone Killer, The Roy Budd Project 3 PR5085ST, 1974
Stone Killer, The album cover

Roy Budd was still a young and relatively inexperienced soundtrack composer when he scored this poor Charles Bronson movie. The music, however, is consistently good. Budd's trademark use of deep, persistent bass and his typical rhythmic motif are strongly exhibited. There are lighter easy listening moments, some excellent analogue synthesizer work (the theme is particularly groovy) and good orchestral funk. This album obviously inspired much of the music to his later score 'Diamonds' in 1976, probably his finest moment along with his score to 1971's Get Carter.

Overall Rating: 4
