With regards to Leone's westerns, how integral was the music of Ennio Morricone to the finished product? VERY integral! Put simply, those films would not be the same without the stirring music infusing each sweaty, elongated scene.
The thing is, to my mind, Cave and Ellis have actually bettered the soundtrack maestro Morricone with this release. This music is remarkable. Each tune is dripping with emotion, featuring melancholy minor chord changes executed on piano and strings. Warren Ellis' violin work is stunning - he makes the instrument ache and sob and scrape and cry. I have listened to these compositions on repeat play and literally weeped like a baby!
I was going to use this review to pinpoint highlights from this album, but - to be honest - I can't. Every tune is a winner. Just when you think the sounds can't get any more heartbreaking...THEY DO! This is the kind of music that evokes feelings of nostalgia, loves lost; a beautiful, irredeemable past.
I listened to this album with my brother last night. As the last tune "Song For Bob" played out, my bro uttered (without any kind of irony): "That is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard."
And d'you know what? He was right.
I urge you to buy this album. No, scratch that - I IMPLORE you to buy this album!
A final word - thank you to Nick Cave and Warren Ellis for enriching my life. I will take this music to the grave with me.
The music is just painfully beautiful and if you like gloomy music then it doesn't get any better than this. I've never heard of Nick Cave before this movie but this work has immortalised him (for me at least).
There are 5 extra-tracks that I've seen on youtube but sadly they are not included in this CD.
For me, that's the mark of a great soundtrack - it works brilliantly in the film, and when you watch/hear one, it makes you want to re-experience the other.
'nough said really
Faultless, beautiful and enchanting
How come classical composers of yore write something like this only to be exalted like gods and have their composition performed for eternity.
Then you have such masterpieces as this and not be commended in the same way?
This is without exception, the most beautifully haunting music you will hear in one lifetime. Unlike most scores which feed the image on screen, this feeds the soul.
Move over Beethoven, seriously.

A gentle, thoughtful soundtrack from a fantastic film. There are a couple of tracks which don't really work away from the film, but the majority of them do. Read morePublished on 2 Jun. 2013 by SwanseaScribe
