Abbey road sessions is a look (albeit not a very detailed one) at the Music Marco Beltrami composed for the 2006 Remake of The Omen. It's interesting enough and seeing how a great composer like Beltrami comes up with his music is a delight but the documentary which can be found on the DVD release of the omen also is very and fatally brief. Admittedly it's worth 10 minutes of your time and John Moore is funny when he appears but really after watching it all your left with is an urge to hunt out more about Beltramis composition, which is rather dissatisfying. The music itself is very good and I felt that in the movie it was overshadowed by what happened on screen but watching this doc really makes you take notice of the tunes and their undoubted quality. They probably aren't as good as Goldsmith's for the original movie but all the same it's a soundtrack worth buying.
