Synopsis

Amazon.com
This is another Milan collection that assembles choice soundtrack highlights while putting some thought into fashioning a consistent listening mood. Represented here are tracks from hit films of the '80s and '90s. It showcases several noted composers with many textures and styles, all placed in a sequence that builds dramatically. Among the highlights are Maurice Jarre's symphonic musings for a barn-raising in Witness, Astor Piazzola's futuristic tango from 12 Monkeys, the quirky delights of Wojciech Kilar's "preacher theme" from The Truman Show, John Lurie's Mystery Train strains, and Howard Shore's junkie-jazz variations from the main theme to Naked Lunch. Most important, each track manages to capture each film's distinct character--just enough to pique listeners' interests without boring them with repetition or virtuoso overkill. --Joseph Lanza
