Midney's film score writing empire
(2 out of 5 stars)
"On this project, Midney brings all his early age talent of movie score composing to bear on while attempting to link it to his true calling (at the time) of disco . Yet paradoxically, this album is the least suitable music for the dance floor in his entire body of musical work. Midney tried to have it both ways and ended up with little of either (i.e., disco music and an origional film score). This musical work is replete with sound effects of "Star Wars". If this album is disco to any extent, it's only in a dry technical manner.The first track is afflicted with a very poor disco-izaton. This very well might be disco in the technical sense but it certainly hasn't any soul or heart in it. It's dry and bare music. The disco-ization is cheesy until the 2:32 mark, after which it slightly improves. This track is also the track featuring the greatest number of sound effects on this album. This track and the following two tracks aren't danceable. The second track enjoys better disco-ization than the former. The third track (a love theme) is befittingly a slow tempo track. It also has an intimate romantic ambience to it, yet it's not slow enough for slow-dancing lovers. The last track, "Star Wars", is the most fun track. It is also the best marriage of disco and the origional "Star Wars" score to be found on this project, regardless of this marriage falling short of perfection.This disc suffers from a technical problem that other Midney discs share in common: the tracks' time notes rarely match the actual duration of those tracks. I'm talking here about differences of more than 1 or 2 seconds! For instance, "Star Wars" actually lasts 6:01 and not 6:30 as noted on the disc's case's back. Displaying such carelessness is unforgivable. Why nobody had noticed this flaw is beyond me."
