Yet Another Winner

"I didn't know how I was going to like Nenette Et Boni when I ordered it. The soundtrack CD was out of print, quite obscure and the one review I read was lukewarm on its charms. But I ordered it anyway because I liked everything else that Tindersticks had done to this point.
As it turned out, I had inadvertently ordered yet another winner by Tindersticks. The remastered soundtrack is good enough for five stars alone. It is a pastiche of mostly older songs, rearranged and rehashed into a mostly instrumental film music format.Though I'd heard it all before in other arrangements, I still could not get enough of the music. I let the CD play over and over again while my brain absorbed every note and the tunes became part of my consciousness.
As good as Nenette Et Boni is, the real star of this remastered set is the bonus CD called Mark's Moods. It too is mostly instrumental, but the best songs are the stunning vocal renditions of Buried Bones and Don't Look Down which were first presented on Curtains. They make the excellent originals seem flaccid in comparison. The best instrumentals on the bonus disc are No More Affairs, Paco's Theme, and a dreamy rendition of Let's Pretend that is evocative of the southwestern soundscapes performed by Calexico.
If you are not yet a Tindersticks fan, its time to become one. They stand as giants among contemporary bands and deserve far more recognition than the US music press gives them. I recommend this CD without reservations. If the amazon price seems high, order it new through an amazon partner. I ordered from fiesta music through amazon and got fast and excellent service at half the price amazon was selling it for."
Breathtaking and Surreal

"When I first heard this album, I listened to it over and over and over. I would love to have company over and surprise them with this. PICTURE: Wine, candles, nice conversation, and this in the CD player. Wow!!!"
