This review is from: Rome (Audio CD)
A short and sweet production which, at thirty-five minutes, doesn't seem at first glance to deserve all the hype surrounding it. However, the artistry that has gone into producing this album, a very modern homage to the best spaghetti-western soundtracks, makes it well worth buying. Norah Jones and Jack White provide throaty, sensual vocals for about half of the tracks, but the real stars here are the instruments. The album is sustained by beautiful strings, soft percussion and gently chirruping electronic additions that compliment the orchestra rather than reducing it to techno rubbish. Despite some very slick production the music retains a rawness which is a pleasure to listen to. This is clearly a labour of love, and after two listens I remain completely bowled over by it.

From what I have heard on YouTube this album is brilliant !! The whole album is there and I listened to it on Saturday and loved it.
