(5 out of 5 stars)
"The cover and Amazon's clumsy title gives the impression that this score is "L'anticristo" alone, while in fact it's coupled with the score "Sepolta viva"(Woman buried alive-from 1973) which takes up 13 of the tracks, while "L'anticristo"(The antichrist-from 1974) only consists of 2. These last 2 tracks are uninteresting to say the least, while the first score is the real gem. Overall I would describe it as 18. century baroque music, not pastiche, but instead with a recognizable Morricone style similar to his other romantic '70 scores. The main theme "Romanza a Cristina" is terrific. It's repeated 3 other times on the album with different orchestration each time, but with no apparent variation apart from that. Nearly all other tracks on this album introduces a new beautiful and romantic melody, and is a great listen all the way through. "La caccia" is a personal favorite. My italian is a bit rusty, but I think the translation is "The hunt", and the sound of it certainly fits such an event. Start off with horn fanfares, strings take over the theme and it developes into an exciting piece of music. A trumpet, harpsichord and more are added, until finally it ends similar to how it started with horn fanfares, now slowing down and fading away, truly amazing! If you like his other incredible scores for "La califfa" and "Questa specie d'amore", you will love this one as well(and vice versa). Well, I'm sure you will no matter what. Enjoy!"
