The follow-up album brings quite a few noticeable changes to the process, which result in an even more fluid and thematic record. Lost Themes’ cowriters and musicians Cody Carpenter (John’s son) and Daniel Davies (John’s godson) both returned. Unlike their first album, when they often worked over the internet exchanging themes over the course of several years, this time all three brought in sketches and worked together in the same city, a luxury they weren’t afforded on the first Lost Themes

Closing out Lost Themes II’s playlist is Utopian Facade, a track that holds a note and accompanies the melody as it has an ethereal vibe that has a soothing feel for listeners to depart on. That is not the end though because there is then an underlying bassline that gives this Terminator-like piece a sense that things may not be as safe as they seem. Furthermore, not is all as it seems, because Lost Themes II has a brooding bonus track entitled Real Xeno. With its simple, low-toned bassline and an otherworldly, methodic melody from the synths, the piece builds up like a growing epidemic

Read: How John Carpenter’s Lost Themes Warrant Nine Films). As Carpenter told us last year, Lost Themes refers to the fact that the music on this album is meant to score the movies in your head. Which is why it’s so difficult critiquing this album; you either feel it, or you don’t. That bizarre power is all over Lost Themes and Lost Themes II. It’s hard to listen to either album, especially the latter, without blurring the lines between dreams and reality. Just as Carpenter confidently intended, Lost Themes II soars on intimate surrealism, and for that, it’s another brilliant success. As they say, can’t argue with a confident man. Essential Tracks: Distant Dream, Hofner Dawn, and Windy Death.

The only direct sequel John Carpenter directed in his career was Escape from LA, and the critical reaction to his follow up to anti-hero Snake Plissken's New York adventures in the post apocalyptic millennial hellscape of urban America was a mixed bag. In 1996 for the New York Times Stephen Holden wrote that the movie barely kept afloat amidst its conceit of "hopelessly choppy adventure spoof. In his over forty-year film career Carpenter has cultivated a reputation that rests on a take-it-or-leave-it attitude to camp glory. Either it touches your or it doesn't. He said that the process was freeing, and the album was quite good, extracting the best sides of his scores over the years. All that being said, Carpenter is not a man known for his sequels. And his follow up to Lost Themes, the aptly named, Lost Themes II, goes to show that some ideas, some sounds, and some themes have legible and reasonable expiration dates. Listening to the opening minutes of the album's introduction "Distant Dream" you miss the quieter and more restrained aspects of his music making.
