The new soundtrack for 1925 film classic Battleship Potemkin is an ambitious project by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe of the Pet Shop Boys. At times, it echoes the haunting scores from John Carpenter's horror movies. Battleship Potemkin is a silent film masterpiece about a revolt by Russian sailors against their superiors after being fed maggot-infested meat. In some respects, it is a horror movie. The film was re-released last year for screenings at film festivals worldwide, where it was shown with the soundtrack. There are moments when the score is effective in arousing strong emotions, such as the nine-minute track Drama in the Harbour. But there are also over-the-top electro-pop songs such as Nyet that border on banal disco. The album highlight is After All (The Odessa Staircase), an easy-listening song with anti-war lyrics. Along with No Time for Tears, the two tracks prove that Tennant and Lowe are the reigning masters of catchy electro-pop music.
