Following in the footsteps of Judge Dredd, this archetypical Silvestri action score pretty much gives the listener what he or she probably expects. However, even if Eraser is a very traditional score in terms of style and orchestration, you can't get away from the fact that Alan Silvestri is very good at what he's doing. The ostinato-driven chase cues, with accentuating brass and percussion, marching snare drums and dynamic melodic developments, work so well in the cinematic context. The sound is kinetic, muscular and heroically male. Surprisingly, the "Main Title" music Silvestri composed was replaced in the film, however on the album this rather peculiar piece is included. Eraser may not surprise the listener at all, but it's the kind of enjoyable, slick action music which never fails to give its audience goose pimples.
