    All of this.

    Im warming up to it. The last minute and a half are superb, and I wish they would have focused more on that part. Sounds like the Halloween theme via The Background World.

    Then again, on third listen, I am enjoying the rest more. I wouldnt mind if Trent and Atticus helped out Carpenter for the upcoming sequel...

    Carpenter is doing a show in LA on Halloween. I wonder if Trent and Atticus will join him for a live performance.

    I saw his AZ show last year. It was outstanding.

    Not on Spotify UK at present, so there's this...

    Liked it - last couple of minutes is particularly good, and I liked the gothicness of the earlier portion - maybe should wait for a proper audio though - sounds muddy here.

    Apple have taken my money but won't give me the song. Keeps saying "item unavailable" when I try to download it.

    I would say it's closer to the Tyler Bates version of the theme than Carpenter's.

    Man, Reznor and Ross knocked it out of the park with this one.

    I think the whole point is that the last 3 minutes has the impact that it does precisely because the prior 4:30ish is similar to the original with just some flourishes added to give it a grander feel. Then that ending comes in and surprises you.

    This is fantastic.

    I'm a fan of Carpenter, but Halloween is probably my least favorite of his movie themes, so I kinda wish they've chosen something (anything) else from his discography. That said, those last couple of minutes rock.

    Slap my balls and call me Shirley this is great

    If this leads to composers covering Carpenter (or TRAR covering Carpenter) I will buy the shit out of that album

    This is delightful. A perfect treat for Friday the 13th.

    For those saying it sounds too much like the original—think of some of the not so great remixes (looking at you, Things Falling Apart) and ask yourself if you’d prefer something like that. You wouldn’t, right? On that same album, there’s the cover of Numan’s “Metal.” Would you say it sounds too much like the original or...

    Like “Metal,” this pays a lot of respect to the original with some trademark TR/AR flourishes (just TR with regards to “Metal”).

    Weird. When you go to the album on Amazon, it won't let you purchase the song separately yet. But you can here:

    First 2 minutes, zzz
    Next 3 minutes, ah well, you know, it sounds like the new version of Carpenter. It is the main theme.
    Last 2 minutes, OH MY GOD!!!

    Downloaded from Google Play no problem, it's OK, I'll probably forget it exists though. :-)

    Just so everyone knows, this is NOT the same as the new John Carpenter version. If you buy the album, you will NOT get the TR&AR version. This is the album version by Carpenter.

    ^^^ Aw, damn. I had assumed (without actually looking) that the album was all different artists covering Carpenter themes.

    As for the track itself, I really like it. I'm not crazy about the way the piano of the main theme is sort of muted instead of being piercing and reverb-y, but I'm sure it'll grow on me. I agree that the end is way more interesting than the rest, but I also like that the song builds up to it. Act I: TR/AR, Act II: Halloween, Act III: TR/AR + Halloween = Sex.

    i fucking love this. that high pitched droney/pulsey thing that fades in and out over parts keeps repeating in my head. it's both scary and fun.

    the climax is such a fucking tease.

    correct. there does not seem to be a physical version planned, either, unless they're keeping it completely under wraps.

    and also, remember the link that @zecho posted is to the newly recorded john carpenter version, not the TR&AR version, which is here.
