Unfortunately the 'new' soundtrack for this film is simply highly repetitive discordant synthesized/sampled music. It is not good.
Metropolis is a brilliant film and I remember seeing on the BBC a version about 40 years ago where the music changed with the scenes and plot development.
It does not here, which is disappointing. The music and visuals do not match.
It is no good just slapping down your fave track of the moment and hoping it will work. More effort needed.
Also bear in mind that this is a cut of the film - it actually runs far longer.
