EDITORS’ NOTES

In his score for The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Ennio Morricone reimagines the West with a barrage of uncanny choirs, wacky sound effects, and Spector-like walls of sound. Shocking fanfares lead to desolate moments with single instruments ringing out lonely cries. Eschewing all orchestral conventions, his legendary title theme employs an arsenal of unlikely instruments: shards of surf guitar, Indian drums, flamenco guitars, Civil War trumpets, loose castanets. His eerie, unnerving sonic choices bring the momentous thrill of rock ’n’ roll to film composing.

Brings back memories to my childhood thank you dad for showing me this beautiful movie

Insanely worth it ,

The ecstasy of gold & The good, the bad, and the ugly

What amazing songs. I prefer the ecstasy of gold over the main theme for normal listening, but it’s great for cliche moments.
The ecstasy of gold is a great song. I can’t explain it with words. Buy this soundtrack or the two with 4-5 star ratings. Just do it. The songs are incredible. You won’t regret purchasing them.
