Wow. Just wow. I'm listening right now to this amazing score by this italian master and I'm enjoying every note of it!!!!
Siliotto understands the feelings the characters go through and it shows because the music is very emotional. Th sadness of Frank Castle (a.k.a The punisher) is evident in cues such as "The massacre" (a clear highlight of the score)or "God's gonna sit this one out".
I had forgotten that thrillers or action films could carry such deeply emotional underscore.
I'm sorry but IMHO this one score shows how many untalented composers work nowadays in Hollywood. Would have been this music written by the likes of a Revell, Debney, Beltrami or one of those Mediaventures clones and we would have been talking about a dull, uninspired techno noise.
I think it's time for Hollywood to hire other clearly superior talent from Europe. I had never heard of Carlo Siliotto and when I knew of his work on The punisher I thought "well at least it would be different from the usual crap we are used to in these type of films"
Boy was I right!!!!
In the meantime, I'll listen to Siolotto's The punisher a lot.
