Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Thomas Crown Affair is a caper story with a new (well, retread) twist: Pierce Brosnan plays a guy who can afford virtually anything, so he attempts to get something he can't, a Monet. It's a movie fitting of a polished, well-produced soundtrack, which is exactly what this disc delivers. Sting's previously unreleased version of the famous theme song "Windmills of Your Mind" lacks the suave psychedelic flair of Noel Harrison's original version (he won an Oscar for the song on the original Thomas Crown soundtrack), but should please his fans. Nina Simone's classic "Sinnerman" is a welcome contribution, and Wasis Diop's "Caban La Ka Kratchie" is a steamy world fusion tune. Bill Conti's score--varying from pulsating piano compositions to smooth jazz--rounds out the rest of this short soundtrack. For most, the real attraction here is the Sting cut. --Jason Verlinde

The Thomas Crown Affair: Music From The MGM Motion Picture
C. A. Luster | Burke, VA USA | 03/26/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Overall pretty decent soundtrack. It is unfortunate as pointed out it is missing Cumenco by Chico Ofarrills Afro Cuban Jazz Orchestra and perhaps one other song. I am happy with what is on it including the long version of Sinnerman by Nina Simone, which is the song used while the men in bowler hats run around the art museum. A shorter version was used in the movie "Cellular". Several of Bill Conti's songs are a pleasure as well. Certainly a CD, although short, worth owning. Good quality and plenty of replayability.
