Music to make you shiver

"Opening with the intense bass and drum of "Cat O Nine Tails", you quickly realize you are dealing with a collection that beckons full attention. The music here runs the gamut of emotions like all of Morricones best. Each piece here merits investigation. Every song is like a microcosm of sounds and melodies. They also have nice humor; such as the Fu'r Elise bit thrown in the middle of The Devil In The Brain. This collection includes a few never before released tracks too. Usual fantastic DRG packaging with exstensive liner notes."

"Nicely recorded two disk set of samples from various giallosand horror films scored by Morricone. I found the samples from _TheCat O' Nine Tails_, _A Lizard in a Woman's Skin_, and _The Smile of the Great Temptress_ to be my personal favorites, but there's nary a track on either of these disks that I skip over. The only quibble I have is that some of samples feel too brief, and make me want to hear the full soundtrack, which is more a compliment than anything. The extensive liner notes aren't bad (mostly informative, and annoyingly vague or obvious in spots), but do contain at least one glaring mistake: they claim that the late Sid Vicious starred in _Copkiller_, a film released in 1983, some four years after his death (I believe John Lydon, Mr. Rotten himself, was the correct Sex Pistol in _Copkiller_). Still, the set is quite a bargain at the price, I feel, and recommended to present and future fans of Morricone's music."

"Ennio is the master of soundtracks, especially when it comes to horror. This double cd set is so scary it made the hair on my arms stand up. Little children chanting devilish things to spine tingling organs to freakish violins. This cd will make you feel creepy and warm all over."
