Ennio Morricone has scored some of the best loved films in history, and some directors are smart enough to get him back more than once. Argento was one of those directors; here’s a collection of three great soundtracks Dario Argento brought the maestro on board to do.
An Ennio Morricone-Dario Argento Trilogy features Morricone’s work on The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, The Cat O’ Nine Tails, and Four Flies on Grey Velvet. He’s in full-on experimental mode in some places on this disc, in others he’s got the classic melodic-yet-doomy sound Morricone’s famous for. Newcomers to Morricone will revel in this, the rest of us love this because it’s an amazing listening experience.
Of the three films, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is probably the best, but Four Flies on Grey Velvet is pretty good in its remastered form. Some disagree, but it’s a favorite here partially because of, (rather than in spite of) its shortcomings.
