ENNIO MORRICONE - LE CASSE (THE BURGLARS)
Here's a great soundtrack from Morricone-and another review from those masters of under-statement over at Dusty Groove.
Quite possibly our favorite Ennio Morricone soundtrack ever- THE record that first made our ears prick up many years ago, and acknowledge him as the genius he truly is! The very first note of the record grabs you immediately a heartbeat-like rhythm, pounding out very slowly before giving way to an off-tuned piano that steps and staggers into the groove. Other tracks follow in a majestic blend of strings, space, weird woodwinds, and even a few funky bits all cast with a perfect blend of dark and sweet throughout! The sound is amazing mindblowing at every twist and turn and the range of themes here is a bit wider than other Morricone soundtracks from the period making for even more excitement!
