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 is 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

I really wanted this sound track, mainly because after seeing the film I couldn't get "Windmills of my mind" by Sting or "Sinnerman" by Nina Simmone out of my head (Yes I know they were performed originally by different artists but I like the versions by those artists!)
The CD is wonderful, though not in the order of the film, the tracks are superb and provoke excellent memories of a superb film.
However, seeing the film is not necessary here, this CD would sit well on anyone's shelf, with a fantastically romantic track by Wasis Diop and the superb orchesteral pieces to relax or inspire you.
This is the best CD I have listened to in ages.

I bought this after watching the film and thinking what a cool collection of music. I was not disappointed. The recording of Sinnerman by Nina Simone is incredible, dramatic yet smooth, as are the various piano solo's that litter the album. Sting's "Windmill Of My Mind' is another strong track. If you like cool jazz like music, you will LOVE this - its superb!

A short but sweet collection of original music and quality songs, that all feels like part of the whole, often a characteristic lacking in soundtracks of this kind. Conti's score is tight, trim and neatly performed and produced. It sounds lively and vibrant in places, relaxed, almost subdued in others. Simone's performance of 'Sinnerman' stands out from the pack as a superb jazz standard, and sits as the jewel in the crown of a rather nice, jazzy soundtrack, which is very listenable indeed.

Sting's "Windmills of the Mind" and Nina Simone's "Sinnerman" should be in every decent music collection. Much of the score written for the film is also excellent - with some very evocotive piano solos. Only reason that it isn't given 5 stars is because there could be greater range of artists represented.
Also a really enjoyable movie - in a freelance James Bond sort of way.

This album is a rarity in modern soundtracks - it doesn't incorporate any "inspired by" tracks in place of the music from the film that made you buy the album in the first place.
Bill Conti's music is cool and classy, blends of soulful jazz, carribean music and lounge style tunes. It also includes original recordings of "sinnerman" by Nina Simone - a masterpiece in its own right, and Sting's version of "windmills of my mind" which is an intelligent revisioning of the 1960s original.
This is the sort of album one could play at a dinner party or quietly with a glass of single malt. The Wasis Diop track is a masterpiece which may well lead you to some of his other albums the eponymous "Everything... is never quite enough" or "No Sant" are two which would well complement this album.

Downside? - there are a few bits of music from the film which I'd have liked to see at "bonus tracks" - perhaps they are being saved for a re-release when the Topkapi Affair is released into cinemas? - I can hardly wait!

I enjoyed this film and just had to have the soundtrack.

My brother bought me this as part of my Christmas present back in 1999.

This original movie score was composed Bill Conti, (he’s also composed other scores for both film and TV).

The composer wrote some wonderful melodies, some that were lyrical, flowing and romantic, and others were bouncy and cheeky melodies. He really did a fantastic job I feel. :-)

Also on this CD are the four songs that were used in the film.

I love playing this soundtrack as it reminds me of such a great film. :-)

I can highly recommend this CD to the fans of the film. :-)

Sting's cover (the term doesn't do it justice) is better than the original - delicious sultry cool production, sharp sleazy percussion, well tempered keyboards, phat, phat sound. Pure class...

A potentially routine remake of 60's classic love/drama commands a following all of it's own. THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR reflects the tantalising emotional balance of the lead characters played immaculately by Russo and Brosnan.
The soundtrack far from sitting in the background stakes a genuine claim in the "best supporting" category with a lush collection of painstakingly arranged, magnificently played orchestral creations augmented by songs from traditional Jazz as well as Central-American and African equivalents. A beautifully mastered recording of detailed, occasionally challenging but never self-indulgent playing.
We are allowed full renditions where half of the tracklist details said "songs" but are denied full exposure to the extended versions of the remaining cinematic backing. This is usually the wise path for OST releases, but a little short sighted for the remade THOMAS CROWN whose well-chosen selection of pieces easily stand critical listening without moving picture accompaniment. Occasional fade-outs suggest there was more to come before someone shouted "it's a wrap!" and we are left with just the bits that hit the screen.

I bought mainly for STING's mercurial treatment of the original's signature Windmills of Your Mind - an aural delight by itself. SINNERMAN is musical madness of the most addictive form. Remarkable for an ending lasting considerably longer than the song itself, here it is played out in full in a dramatic 10 minute plus complete working that simply has to be heard to be believed. It is captured here with sufficient intimacy to preserve even the connect of NINA SIMONES own fingertips stabbing furiously at piano hammers in the triumphant conclusion and the stick tips picking out surface variances on the high hat.
