Extreme Prejudice | Jerry Goldsmith
Nick Nolte and Powers Booth star in Walter Hill’s modern-day western as classic childhood friends-turned-enemies: one now a Texas ranger, the other a ruthless narcotics trafficker.
Though known primarily as an orchestral composer, Jerry Goldsmith was certainly no stranger to electronic composition, employing synthesizer and ambient experimentation as early as the 1970s. No surprise, then, that his work here would embrace a similar counterpoint, eschewing conventional action and even throwback Western music in favor of a more modern, primarily electronic score crafted to underline the contemporary urgency of the film’s ‘80s era “drug war” storyline. Though Goldsmith often incorporates the use of orchestral strings to punctuate more humanistic moments, tracks like “Cash” and “The Set Up ” almost seem to belong more in the Giorio Moroder wheelhouse than anything traditionally Goldsmith. Other tracks, like “The Plan” and “No Friendlies,” opt for straight Moroder-style pop, complete with electronic drums and bells.
