Overview

The Man from U.N.C.L.E., the 2015 Guy Ritchie-directed Warner Bros. spy flick based on the '60s U.S. television series of the same name, offers a soundtrack with 17 tracks of the mixed jazz-combo-and-orchestra-original-score by Daniel Pemberton (Steve Jobs, The Counselor), and seven classic songs, including Nina Simone's "Take Care of Business," Louis Prima's "Five Months, Two Weeks, Two Days," and Solomon Burke's "Cry to Me." The stylish era-specific tunes enhance the setting of the Cold War '60s period film, and fit seamlessly among the swing-centric original music. Gone is Jerry Goldsmith's show theme, but on hand are jazz flute, harpsichord ("His Name Is Napoleon Solo"), organs, guitars, drum kit, percussion, and more, varied from track to track and alternating with or joining occasional strings or full orchestra ("Into the Lair [Betrayal, Pt. 1]"), to forge the '60s spy music sound that evokes James Bond or Mission: Impossible. Suspenseful, out of its time, over an hour in length, and cool to the nth degree, the soundtrack should both satisfy genre fans and stand out among the stream of cloying strings, superhero brass and tympani, and intimate piano fare that marks the majority of contemporary Hollywood scores. [A Deluxe Edition of the soundtrack was released with four bonus score tracks.]
