This is one of the most memorable film soundtracks ever, a rival for that other great example of the art `The Good, The Bad, The Ugly'. Sergio Leone's direction was a breath of fresh air, and his use of music in his films was an integral part of his style and the films successes.

Morricone would often write the score, then Leone would film around the music, integrating it into the film in a way not really seen before. A prime example of this is the scene where a standoff is played out to the tune coming from a pocketwatch. Doing things this way added an extra depth to the film and packed a real punch.

Despite the reliance of the film on the score, the score can be listened to in complete isolation from the film with total enjoyment. Here we have a suite of tunes that defy my attempts to describe, but are an eminently enjoyable suite of orchestrations taken directly from the film.

This release is pretty basic. The sound is very good and is an excellent transfer, but there are no extras, dialogue or booklet. It's pretty basic, but worth it for the music.

This download is not the original version by Ennio Morricone, It's a cover version by Solisti e Orchestre Del Cinema Italiano. I already have this version coupled with "Diabolic, It's states original score & it isn't , it was just a waste of money

Of the three films of The Good, The Bad and the Ugly trilogy, my favourite is For A Few Dollars More, closely followed by the title film. I'd also say the same of the title tracks although, when it comes to the soundtracks as a whole, I'd say the opposite (i.e. that the Good, the Bad & the Ugly is a better soundtrack).

I really wanted to see this soundtrack as a classic, but there are two things that prevent it being so.
First, there is the number of tracks - eight, which totals to an unbelievably poor 15 minutes of music.
Second, track one is almost identical to track 8 (based on the music that the baddy's pocketwatch makes) & so you get even less bang for your buck & are basically left with track 1/8 & track 6 ('Per Qualche Dollaro in Piu' - the title track).
For comparison, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly soundtrack has over 30 minutes of music, has the title track & The Ecstasy Of Gold AND also has a rich tapestry of music among its 9 other tracks.

So, although the title track of this album is one of Ennio Morricone's finest compositions, I would recommend getting
