As a composer myself, the critique herein, I can safely say, is wholly inaccurate and shows no understanding of Ennio Morricone's craft and artistry. Like all great composers, Morricone has created a style and sound uniquely his own. Great music, even good music, has no need to conform to so called decade styles and fads, therein gaining its identity unless it is the background for a child's movie. The sound tract for, In The Line Of Fire, corresponds quite accurately to the story line, mood, accent points, flavor and nuances of the script, while maintaining its vintage Morricone touch. In spite of the great variety of tone, timbre, harmony,driving rhythms and colorful orchestrations used by Maestro Morricone to help tell a story, one never comes away unaware of who the composer behind the set is. And one can always count on a great sweeping love theme, regardless of the subject matter.
