"By its cover, this collection of Morricone film music may not look like much, but in fact it is one of the best around. It is especially good for those people who are looking for something that is not just spaghetti western stuff.That side of Morricone is represented here, in Fistful Of Dollars, but you also get a bit more obscure (but great) music from Il Federale, The Antichrist and Extrasensorial to name a few.Highlights include 'Il tangone' (a beautiful tango from the film I Basilichi), the very fun 'Monachine can can' from Le Monachine, plus six wonderful selections from the film I Malamondo. I Malamondo is renowned as one of Morricone's most interesting and varied soundtracks, and these six tracks display that well, from twangy guitar swing to dreamy vocal tracks to a cute, quirky horn and percussion piece. (Hint: if you can track down an Italian compilation called "Dancing With Morricone" you get most of the tracks from I Malamondo which aren't on this album).I will say this, however: the Anthology "Fistful Of Film Music" is probably the best selection of Morricone's work, including some well-known and some more obscure pieces. I recommend going for that one first. But this is an excellent followup."
