Obviously a lot of people have seen the movie, as well as heard the title track. Among the soundtracks Ennio Morricone has made, it's hard to pick one, but I think the music to the Good, the bad and the ugly has to be the first choise thanks to having among the best tracks he's ever done. Obviously it's worth owning for the title music alone, but the last two tracks, The Ecstacy of Gold and Trio.. Ennio Morricone doesn't come better than that, and because of that, this is an essential buy

I was originally sceptical about buying this recording, as I have heard the title track more times than I would care to mention. However, I now realise it is one of Morricone's finest offerings. It contains all the Morricone trademarks :- sweeping strings, bittersweet chord changes and soaring vocals. It also contains some of the most compelling tunes he has ever created.
"Desert" is a sinister, brooding piece, building up on warbling strings. "Song of a Soldier" is a rather beautiful piece involving an infectious male chorus. The final number, "Trio", is in my opinion the piece de resistance. It builds and builds on waves of strings and a menacing acoustic guitar before climaxing with a heart rending chorus of strings and trumpet. Truly, it is a tune to bring up the goosebumps and send a shiver of electricity down the spine. Of course, this is what any music worth its salt should do.
For the price this album is a bargain, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys music that stirs the soul. Other compulsive Morricone masterpieces include "Once Upon a Time in America" and "Once Upon a Time in the West". At least one of his albums should figure in everyone's collection.

This isn't music that you can listen to on the sofa with the headphones on. It isn't music to have playing in the bedroom as you get up on a Saturday morning. And it's not music to have in the background when friends come round. So when do I get to play this?
In the car, that's when. Or at least it was in the days I drove round in a convertible. This is the most cool music ever under those conditions. Played extra loud, driving under the barrier into the office car park. All the looks you get from people that are saying "You are such a cool dude..."
Obviously it's the first (theme at start of film), penultimate (Mexican running round the cemetary looking for one particular certain grave) and final (three man standoff at the end) tracks that are the ones to blast out.
