It's nearly impossible to overstate how brilliant the filmmaking on display is in Jonathan Demme's five-time Academy Award® winning thriller - THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS. All of the film's key players are operating at their absolute best, and that includes Howard Shore, whose operatic, haunting and brilliantly composed score for the film is the synthesis of his masterful collaborations with David Cronenberg in the '80s. THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is not only an essential American film, it is an essential title for your soundtrack library. 

This expanded edition is produced by Neil S. Bulk, supervised by Howard Shore himself, and mastered by Doug Schwartz from the original two-track stereo session tapes, courtesy of MGM. Featuring original artwork by Rich Kelly, liner notes by Tim Greiving comprised of all new interviews with composer Howard Shore and star Jodie Foster and pressed on 2X 180 Gram Moth colored vinyl (also available on 2X 180 Gram Black vinyl).
