5.0 out of 5 stars Style AND substance... 14 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Apparently there are four tracks on here that were originally intended for Johnny Jewel's cruelly aborted 'Drive' soundtrack. However Hollywood's loss is our gain with an inspired album of imaginary scores which have been afforded the full artistic license they deserve, denied by the fatcat producers.

From pulsing, metronomic Italo-themed pieces to beautiful, melodic synth laments, this 2 hour collection astonishingly doesn't dip in quality over its course. All of the tracks instantly create a mini movie-scene in your mind with heady imagery and (perhaps obviously) provide a killer driving soundtrack.

The album is not slavish in its approach to homage with an eye as much on sleek futurism as on creating Fabio Frizzi/Claudio Simonetti facsimiles. The overall vibe is of an urban twilight with menace and intrigue just round the bend.
Along with the excellent 'Drokk' this is streets ahead of your average 'real' soundtrack. Highly recommended for fans of emotive 80's synth scores and slick Michael Mann-esque road warrior pretensions.

I was interested to hear a Drive like soundscape(s) album to know what might have been if I understand correctly.
I can only say, it's for the best.

There is a variety in the synthesizer like soundscapes which is good, but most tracks are just not that interesting to listen to.
You can imagine that it might work to create a certain atmosphere, but as a listening experience it is a lot interesting than
the Drive soundtrack.

I recommend to listen to the tracks or samples of them before you buy this cd. For me it was quite disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant soundtrack 15 Aug 2013
By Becky - Published on Amazon.com
I picked this up at a record store for 15 bucks. three LP for $15 is a bargain in my book. I've listened to them over and over for a few weeks now...Very impressed. I love the collection of these short soundscapes. Each of them is a its own different world. So u just go in and out of these worlds for 2 hrs...so brilliant. Music of the twenty-first century.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great album from Johnny Jewel. 16 Jan 2013
By stephen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm hooked on this album. The vinyl pressing is very nice. The album has a very cool ambient feel to it for most of the tracks. These themes for an imaginary film are compelling.
