Editorial Reviews

Composer John Powell pays homage to this film's Eurocentrism and modern setting with a spare, twitchy main title and other cues that evoke a winning cross-pollinization of the oeuvres of Thomas Newman and David Holmes. Combining organic orchestral elements with electronic flourishes to good effect, that jazz-influenced, post-modernist tack quietly propels the best moments here. The score's main shortcomings are predictable: Thunderous blasts of percussion cadences and thrash guitar that have become expected contemporary action movie cliches. Yet Powell manages to freshen even some of those with intriguing new timbres. Like the suspense caper genre itself, it's a score where the pay-off is not nearly as interesting as the getting there. --Jerry McCulley

John Powell is brilliant in his orchestration of this album. The first few tracks elquently capture an Italian aura. This is what I though:
1. Opening Titles - Aight, but starts off a little soft
2. The Italian Job - Cool, sounds a bit like James Bond
3. Venice Gold Heist - Nice blend of movie's numerous motifs
4. Boat Chase - Good, however ending differs from movie
5. Mourning John - I personally was a little bored by this
6. Planning The Heist - Nice precussion
7. Pawning The Gold - Never remembered hearing this in movie
8. Cable Chick - Another James Bond kinda song, cool guitar
9. Getting The Axe - Aight I guess, never listen to it much
10. The Devil Inside - Interesting in its own way
11. Bitter Suite - Good song, clever title
12. The New Plan - The BEST song featuring the BEST motif
13. Tunnel Run - Cool song with some heavy metal
14. Chopper Chase/Face-Off - Good, fast pased song
15. Golden - Same motif as 12, but guitar makes it cooler
The only thing that disappoints me is that the unused 35 minutes weren't filled with music from the film. For those who are having trouble identifying the songs on the film, here are most of them:
The Wrekoning - Boomkat = when Stella drives MINI back to store
California Soul - Marlena Shaw = the "arrival in LA" montage
ABC 123 - Jackson 5 = little Charlie stills bully's wallet
Go - Andy Hunter = MINI test drive in warehouse w/computer
Pedal To The Medal - Kazzer = 3 MINI's test drive in LA canals...

Format: Audio CD
John Powell's slick, cosmopolitan score for the "Italian Job" is a great addition to any soundtrack collection. The score itself works great and fits coherently in the film. Yet, in my opinion, a score achieves greater status when it can stand on its own.
Early in the score, Powell's work sounds similar to that of David Holmes' work on another film of the same genre, "Ocean's Eleven." Tracks like "The Italian Job," "Pawning the Gold," and "Cable Chick" scream David Holmes with heavy bass lines, twangy ryhthm guitars and off-kiltered rhythm loops. But as the score progresses, Powell's addition of the string and brass orchestra makes this score stand-out from other scores of this genre. These arrangements are placed so well within each track that it just makes for an exciting and fascinating listen.
Take for example, "The New Plan," a track that's worth the price of this CD alone. "The New Plan" starts off with a heavy 4/4 hip-hop beat laced with latin percussions. As the track plays, the orchestra hints and hits in syncopated moments within the rhythm. By the end of the song, the music has already played in full swing with strings, orchestra, synth effects, percussions and rhythm loops creating a wonderful fusion proving that synth scores and orchestrated scores can exist in one score if done right.
The detraction here is that the score runs a little short, but this should be no surprise from label Varese Sarabande. If you saw the film, you know there's more music than what is offered in the CD. One can only wonder.
