All in all, the album is interesting because it has a good vibe of appreciation of the maestro. Therefore, I would recommend it to anybody, who knows Ennio's work and to others beyond.
As of Metallica track. It is nothing of a surprise, because the original song is very well known, and the cover is the true Metallica cover. It sounds very fresh, with little nice guitar solo tweaks, it feels like the guys are in their 20's again, it is done with the same 'not-too-serious' attitude as Garage days where done back in 87. It made me feel good, and that's what matters.
It'd be logical if they will play the concert intro themselves for these few Europe shows they have this summer, and I hope to see that happen, since I got the Vienna gig tickets already through the Metclub, hope to get Moscow ones too.
Take care and enjoy.
I was thrilled to see Ennio finally receive an Academy Award this year! He deserved to receive many Academy Awards over the past 40 years for all his magnificent works. Next to Elmer Bernstein, I consider him my favorite film composer. Many of the selections on this album I had never heard before. Metallica playing "The Ecstacy of Gold" is absolutely reiveting! Andrea Bocelli is a perfect fit to sing Ennio's songs. Incidentally, Mr. Bocelli also sings two of Ennio's otherwise unknown songs on one of his older albums. Unknown to us in the USA only because Ennio has chosen to focus his life's work on mostly Italian film scores.
I only wish his scores were more accessable to us living outside of Italy. I have much of his film music, but it's still very hard to find. I truly feel that the genius of Ennio's music will not fully be appreciated until after he is gone from us.
So to anyone who really wants to know what a modern film score genius sounds like...BUY THIS ALBUM!!!
My only complaint with this compact disc is that it doesn't explain why he is so well-loved by the people who sing and contributed to the compilation. Not even an explanation as to why he is loved in the arts industry, it would have been helpful to have understood his brilliance in music and why is so highly regarded even though his name may not be as famous as his peers.
Apart from that exception, I enjoyed listening to the sounds, voices, and the music of Ennio Morricone who would not have made it possible.
