All Music Guide - Doug Stone
Along with the James Bond, Pink Panther, and Peter Gunn themes, the title piece of The Good, the Bad & the Ugly is arguably one of the greatest themes ever written. The entire score ties with those from Midnight Express and Blade Runner as the greatest soundtracks of all time. Many imitated the profoundly unique, deeply haunting style of composer Ennio Morricone, but none could attain his level of brilliance. Hugo Montenegro comes very close in a pop vein. His version of "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" was a smash, and he weaves bells, marching chants, and myriad other sounds into a spaghetti tapestry that not only recalls the tension on the screen, but also makes for ...

The themes from A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More also have several great moments. Get this too-brief comp for its excellence and historical significance, but get Morricone's originals because therein can be heard some of the best music ever created.

    Did the editors see the movies??

    This is not the original album. Several tracks have been deleted, including two from For a Few Dollars More. My biggest gripe is there has been substantial editing, most noticeably on "Sixty Seconds to What?" The pocket watch chimes that make up the intro and ending were cut. For anyone who's seen the movie, it's pretty significant to the story.

    If you've seen the movies, or not seen the movies, it just doesn't matter. This is great music. I listen to it and the music follows me for days afterward. This is a little " bouncier and clearer" than the original soundtrack. Its just great!!!If the Old West were a melody, this would be it. Tell all your friends!! If this CD ever got damaged I would replace it immediately.
