This production of Poe's Fall of the House of Usher is nothing less than spectacular. The cover gives a long list of credits which is evidence of the many unique facets of the production. Brad Hill has composed an original score which evokes Poe's wonderful, moody prose. Battista has just the right voice and inflection to create the atmosphere of escalating terror. Wonderful sound effects (galloping horses, creaking doors, etc.) reflect brilliant editing. A warning on the cover states that the tape may test the limits of the ordinary sound system. While a Sony Walkman gave no problems, a more sophisticated system made the story even better. S.B.M. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 92]
