The Killing Fields
Artist: Mike Oldfield
This is hard to review because, while it may make a great movie soundtrack (I haven't seen the movie in question) ultimately this would have been a much better album had Mike made the tracks a lot longer and taken the time to develop them out into fuller pieces.
As it is, this is one of the more bizarre soundtrack albums I've heard - it is quite discordant in places and meanders all over the map musically. Most of the tracks are quite short and separate from each other, resulting in a very disjointed feel. No doubt it all works in context with the movie, but separately tracks like "The Year Zero" (multi-layered ghoulish vocals?!) and "Blood Sucking" just seem strange.
There are some gems hidden in here, notably some very nice full-orchestra pieces, but it's somewhat of an oddity in the Oldfield canon.
