To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Scrivo con rammarico questa recensione perchè la selezione delle tracce è perfetta, peccato per la qualità di registrazione. Per tutta la durata dell'ascolto si sente un fastidiosissimo fruscio di fondo e in aggiunta il volume di registrazione è estremamente basso. Ho restituito l'articolo.
Terrible compression producing harsh tones on what should have been an epic reproduction, produced on a single thin disc material and presented in a cheap package. An positively low rent presentation which clearly deserves better. The sort of offering that one might expect given away free in a Sunday newspaper.
Ich will diese CD zum Geburtstag verschenken. Allerdings überlege ich, ob ich nicht noch einmal in einen Laden gehe, um zu schauen, ob es vielleicht eine andere Hülle gibt - für 16 € erwarte ich etwas ansprechenderes. Die CD ist nur so einer dünnen Pappe verpackt. Das schaut aus, als ob es eine kostenlose Beilage in irgendeiner Musikzeitschrift o. Ä. war. Es ist mir fast peinlich die so zu verschenken, es sieht einfach billig aus. Ich denke aber, dass ich auch bei "Sa...rn, nichts anderes erhalten werden. Es ist nicht jede Generation mit mp3 Player und Co. vertraut. Zu den Songs kann ich nicht sagen, aber das ist ja in der Regel sowieso Geschmackssache. :-(
Morricone was a master of writing music that made mediocre films SEEM better than they actually were. Best evidence of this IMO was "The Mission" which, on the advice of a friend, I yawned through several years ago. Had it not been for the soundtrack, I would have been sound asleep thirty minutes in. This CD is a compilation of literally, the good, the bad, and the ugly. (Okay, you can stop groaning.) They range from breathtakingly beautiful to annoyingly tedious. I suspect that the annoying tracks served the action on the screen well, but on their own don't hold up as anything you would want to play repeatedly unless you are an ardent film buff and can mentally associate the music with the action.
Possibly my expectations were too high as was dissapointed in the overall music. Probably 2 selections on the cd were good and the remaining ones I did not really care for. If I wou k d have gad an opportunity to hear the entire cd before buying it I would not have purchased it.
Many songs are on the CD, however, most are only a few minutes long. Could have easily cut the number of tracks and lengthen each one or expanded the discs to 2 and still lengthen the songs. Not recommended.
