Product Description

While the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair couldn't really hold a candle to the magnificent 1967 original the soundtrack is a little better. Bill Conti's score -- while not as pungent as Michel Legrand's original -- is still effective and probing. One of the highlights of this version is Sting's version of the classic 'Windmills of Your Mind ' which brings a slight (and welcome) reggae element to this song. Nina Simone's 'Sinner Man' is almost as good highlighting her fabulous blues/jazz vocals. ~ Matthew GreenwaldOriginal score composed by Bill Conti.Valley Bill

Amazon.com

The Thomas Crown Affair is a caper story with a new (well, retread) twist: Pierce Brosnan plays a guy who can afford virtually anything, so he attempts to get something he can't, a Monet. It's a movie fitting of a polished, well-produced soundtrack, which is exactly what this disc delivers. Sting's previously unreleased version of the famous theme song "Windmills of Your Mind" lacks the suave psychedelic flair of Noel Harrison's original version (he won an Oscar for the song on the original Thomas Crown soundtrack), but should please his fans. Nina Simone's classic "Sinnerman" is a welcome contribution, and Wasis Diop's "Caban La Ka Kratchie" is a steamy world fusion tune. Bill Conti's score--varying from pulsating piano compositions to smooth jazz--rounds out the rest of this short soundtrack. For most, the real attraction here is the Sting cut. --Jason Verlinde

Customer Reviews

Great music soundtrack from the movie.
Mom Wie
The CD was brand new, and I love the songs, it came in the mail extremley fast, even though it was a week before Christmas.
Lena Kasper
This soundtrack, like the movie, is very nice, specially for the first song "Windmills of your mind" sing by Sting.

The Thomas Crown Affair Soundtrack (1999) has some true musical highlights including the obvious Sting version of "Windmills of Your Mind," which was a remake of a song found in the original movie. Another highlights include George Cordandt's "Caban..." and Bill Conti's piano theme found on tracks 5, 6, 8, and 9. The main drawback to this cd is it's short length. There are quite a number of songs missing from the film including the music of the heist, as well as the big band number from the dance sequence between Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo. Still a good album, and worth a buy from any fan of the film.

I have seen the movie many times and think its a great suspense/caper/romance movie. Actually, its a little bit of all that. the soundtrack fits the movie well. The songs from Sting and Nina Simone are excellent. And Bill Conti's jazz-style score ranges from the plinky piano tunes of the two "Glider" tracks to the smooth jazz lounge feel of "Cocktails". The only problem I had with this otherwise exceptional soundtrack was the lack of the theft sequence music. Although it was more rock than the rest of the score, the theft sequence theme would have rounded off this CD perfectly.

The whole problem with the Soundtrack is that the "nice" stuff, the stuff that made the movie feel "ritzy" and glamourous, the jazz and the piano, the Sting soundtrack and the rest of the stuff is here. But the music that rounded out the whole movie itself, such as the song from the lovemaking scene between Russo and Brosnson, is NOT here. The music from the original heist is not here. Hell, half the music from the whole thing isn't here. Which makes this, while a nice CD to listen to, NOT what I'd even want to buy. I listened to it, I returned it to the rack, and I walked out. I wouldn't buy it, and MGM better start figuring out the amount of space that a CD actually has, and what is DECENT music to listen to, and what is not.

There are 3 major songs MISSING from the CD. The first was played during the breaking out of the horse at the beginning. The second was during the hot dance scene and the major mistake was not including the music from the love scene following the hot dance scene. Maybe a second CD is coming - we can only hope. Meanwhile - does anyone have any info on the songs above? Artist's name? Anything? Otherwise what music that is on the CD is quite good but - geez I hope that the missing songs surface somehow.

If you haven't yet seen this smart, sexy, funny thrill ride of a movie yet, SEE IT! And if you have, and you loved it as much as I did, get the soundtrack! While watching the film, I kept thinking, "this music is fantastic! I hope there's a soundtrack!" And I was not disappointed when I purchased the CD. All of the great music from the film is here, including the sensuous "Everything" from Wasis Diop, Nina Simone's "Sinnerman," with it's charging rhythms, the remake of "Windmills..." by Sting, and Bill Conti's understated, intelligent score, which would be considered fine music even on its own. Who would have thought that a soundtrack could so completely compliment a wonderful film?

There are very few things keeping this from being a 5-star review. The music selected evokes incredibly accurately the wide range of emotions instilled by the film. The quality of the music is perfect. Listener might leave wondering, however, *why* the album's producers left out the beautiful tracks that they did.
The album includes obviously good selections, such as the sexy and haunting version of "The Windmills of Your Mind" by Sting, the sensual and wistful "Everything...(Is Never Quite Enough)" by Wasis Diop, the powerful and energetic "Sinnerman" by the great Nina Simone and the festive "Caban La Ka Kratchie" by Georges Fordat. An equally obvious series of selections are the (too) short tracks from Bill Conti's beautiful and emotionally wide-ranging original score.
But what about the great suspenseful and action-packed instrumental score played during the film's opening theft sequence? What about the several beautiful versions of "The Windmills of Your Mind," including the sexy big band version during the BVLGARI black and white ball? And what about the hot Latin number during the same scene? The album seems perfect in what it has, but incredibly off-base in what it lacks.
It remains a beautiful album. Buy it anyway...and keep Sting, Wasis Diop, and Bill Conti on "repeat," but hope we one day see more of what was missing from this album in its equally beautiful sister, *More Music from The Thomas Crown Affair*....

I didn't know this version existed. It was in limited release some time after the movie's release. This is a hot movie and the music is even hotter. Just happened to be on eBay and checking for this occasionally. I discovered that there is an expanded edition. It was a limited release but the cd contains music that is over 60 minutes long. I've got the DVD but always love rewinding to my favorite parts just to hear the music.
