This album should have been mind-blowing; the musicians, studio, producers etc but unfortunately it's amazingly unremarkable. I'm an unashamedly Morricone obsessive and desperately wanted to love this album - the best bits are when Danger Mouse rips off specific chord progressions or melodies. The whole album sounds like Air doing their finest Serge Gainsbourg imitation. The stand-out feature of the album is the bass production.
It's a nice album but it's nowhere near as ace as it could have been.
