CD Reviews

Would have it given it 5 but......
Alisdair J. Gordon | Glasgow, Scotland | 06/27/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In my respectful opinion, this is one of the great soundtracks - up there with some of Bernard Hermann's scores (and I'd swear I can hear the latter's influence here.) This is obviously music suffused with the spirit of the big, American city. The production on this CD is also absolutely amazing.

But - and it's a big but - infuriatingly, the best piece from the film is not on the CD. I'm referring to the incredible music from the title sequence. It's reprised to some extent on Track 14 but it's no substitute. I can't for the life of me understand why they left this off the CD!

So, four stars instead of the five it should and would have had if the title piece had been included."
