CD Reviews

Great score
R. Riis | NY | 02/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An offbeat film but a lovely score which was nominated for an Academy Award. The music is somewhere between the classic Italian cinema score style of Nino Rota and what would today be called "lounge" music. The best track is #9, which became the standard "More". The booklet reprints only the notes from the original LP sleeve, but the excellence of the music makes this a worthwhile purchase for film music fans."
Truly Beautiful!

"I have always considered "More" to be the most beautiful song that I have ever heard. The score from Mondo Cane has the most beautiful orchestration & arrangements of this song. I can't stop playing this CD. For me, music is one of the greatest gifts to mankind. The music from this CD is one of the most valuable things that I own."
This is a great record

"Well , this soudntrack had an academy nomination back in 1963 . Oliverio and Ortolani have a great melodic sense and a good sense of humour.They wrote "China tarantella ""Hong kong cha cha cha " . "More " is an outstanding melody anyway you look at it or listen to it. It may be simple but you won't forget that melody after the first listening...
Of course certains sounds belong to the 60s and sound a little lounge, but no more that certain sountracks of the age...
Ortolani is one of great italian soundtrack composers , so I suggest that you buy this cd."
