"Citta Violenta" may not have the same cache as other Italian crime films from the 1970's but Ennio Morricone's excellent score has faired much better. The tracks effortlessly flow from the dramatic to subtle to psychedelic along with a touch of funkiness on "Svolta Definitiva". However, most of the time things are quite dark, to the point were you could imagine this being the soundtrack to a David Lynch or Cronenberg film. The kick-ass qualities evident on "Disperatamente" certainly evoke images of leading man Charles Bronson in his role as a violent assassin and the effortless "Riassunto" proves to be the perfect closer. It is easy to understand why Morricone fans rate this record so highly and you can add me to that list aswell. Please note - I've been forced to use an external link again so if you have any issues with it then let me know and I'll try to hunt down another one for you. Cheers.

Nothing wrong with this GREAT album, Mr.C! I think the problem with that previous one was caused by the uploader's hard drive "having a moment."

And you were right about "Riassunto"--I think it's my favorite track from one FANTASTIC album.

(who's Ennio collection is slowly growing)

Thanks for this!

Although not the best flick, the opening sequence is well worth watching—set up and chase scene with no dialogue, full on 70's zooms and graphics.
