For the modest price here, you are getting a broad look at Morricone's msuic over a multi-year period. When burned to CDs, you get almost four full CDs of music. Likely you will want to eliminate tracks after first hearing. Because of my taste in music, I eliminated longer pieces where Morricone was in his atonal avant garde classical mode. I doubt that a marimba concerto that sounds like factory machinery will appeal to many. Also, a few of the tracks seemed poorly recorded. I felt that way about the initial Algiers track (so when sampling don't use that as representative). There were a few tracks where the recording was live, and naturally one has to put up with audience applause. And, there were two tracks that cut off too abruptly on the final note. But all in all I was pleased. I think one of the reasons for getting such a collection album is to show you the mood of the overall music (for, say, a movie) and whet your appetite for more. I give this overall a 4.5 -- I listed this as 4 stars in the heading though because an individual cannot give half stars.

Succinct review: This set of music was clearly put together by someone who loves Morricone's music and is perfect for fans who already own a "greatest hits" collection and a soundtrack or two and are looking to expand their collection of this master's music.

Ennio Morricone is one of my favorite composers (others being Olivier Messiaen and John Zorn) and I was looking for a collection of his non-film concert pieces when I discovered this amazing download. I couldn't believe it was possible to download 92 tracks for under $12 - there had to be a catch right? Perusing the list of tracks, it seemed like it had all the essentials (Good/Bad/Ugly, Once Upon a Time in the West, the Mission, etc...) as well my favorite themes from Italian films I haven't seen, with a few strange absences (no "Fistful of Dollars" or "L'arena"?). Listening to the samples, I realized these weren't the recordings I've heard before. This is not a "greatest hits" of original movie score recordings, for that see the excellent "Gold Collection". It also isn't a complete overview of this composers amazing works (that would be impossible) or a collection of his more obscure/avant-garde works like "Crime & Dissonance". As the image says, this is a sample of "half a century of music composed, orchestrated and conducted by Ennio Morricone". These are recordings from live concert performances of this music, which is awesome because that means none of the music here is an exact duplicate of the aforementioned collections or soundtracks I already own.

The music spread across the 5 discs are not in a random order - each disc covers a decade (50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's & 2000's).

It's hard to think of a better deal on this website. The track for Malena alone is worth at least a buck or two, same for Rampage and Legend of 1900. I'm sure the 89 other tracks will also make it worth your while for the price.

For those who grew up with Leone and Morricone this is a very satisfying work and is highly recommended, for those who like movie scores as well.
