Stewart Copeland's 'BEN-HUR, A Tale of the Christ - MGM's classic silent film'
11th October 2016
'The music — performed by full orchestra and Copeland on drum set and a battery of percussion that would make Neil Peart green with envy — is eastern modalities meeting blaxploitation fun, which, in meticulous build of tension, melds with the visuals of the Copeland-trimmed-and-edited film and achieves a powerful and surprisingly affecting, epiphany-filled ninety minutes.'
