The names on this tribute testify to the extraordinarily wide appeal of the Italian film composer Ennio Morricone: not many people could get Bruce Springsteen, Celine Dion, Quincy Jones, Renée Fleming, and Metallica on one disc. And while the artists come from very diverse genres, the album holds together well. Things start off on a syrupy note with Dion's "I Knew I Loved You," a ballad from 1984's Once Upon a Time in America (to which Alan and Marilyn Bergman added lyrics in 2006). But fortunately the CD quickly recovers and goes on to survey most of Morricone's styles, from the dissonance of his spaghetti Western scores to his mod period to his lush orchestral vistas. Metallica goes all out with guitars blazing on "Ecstasy of Gold," a track they've used as a concert intro for years, while Brazil's Daniela Mercury and Eumir Deodato breeze through "Conmigo," and the French-British combo Vanessa and the O's resuscitate the pure '60s pop of "Je Changerai d'Avis," once performed by Françoise Hardy. As for ballads, listen for soprano Renée Fleming, who surpasses her previous pop-crossover attempts on the fragile "Sail Away." Morricone himself couldn't stay away: he wrote interstitial music to create seamless transitions between the tracks, and conducts three instrumental cues. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

I bought this album for the second time. The first one I lent to a friend and ended up giving it to him since he loved it so much. This album, not only makes you discover the greatest songs of Ennio Morricone, but it also makes you discover some of the greatest performers such as Chris Botti, Renée Fleming, Denyce Graves and many others. All songs are arranged so there are no pause between them. It's really one of my favorite albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Morricone Tribute Shows Maestro's Range March 22 2007
By Robert C. Cumbow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The tremendous range and diversity of Ennio Morricone's prodigious talent is on display in this tribute album by a surprising mix of artists performing their own renditions of the Maestro's work. Andrea Bocelli, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Herbie Hancock, Quincey Jones and Yo Yo-Ma are among the performers, and the performances range from good to great (though a couple of them weigh in as simply odd). Celine Dion's vocalization of the haunting theme from "Once upon a Time in America" opens the album, and is better to listen to than it was to watch on the Academy Awards. The music is continuous, with transitions crafted by Morricone himself, who also contributes a couple of the performances. I have only one complaint: the album label and liner notes do not identify the film from which each piece comes. As an intermediate-level Morricone Geek, I can identify most of them--but there are two or three I'd like to know more about.
5.0 out of 5 stars We All Love Ennio Morricone Oct. 14 2007
By Rimbeaud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Well as a lifelong fan of maestro Morricone since I first heard the haunting theme of Once Upon A Time In The West when I was a kid I would say this 'tribute' is quite nice, a harmless bit of fun, it doesn't all work but lets not be too po-faced about most of it, there are certainly tracks to skip like the maudlin opener Celine Dion's I Knew I Loved You..just give me the music who needs the bolted on lyrics or soporiphic Vegas warbling..no way baby! But there are some great things and what a surprise to find a reprised Mina's Se Telefonando from '66, one of the maestro's pure pop moments and this version by young anglo/french popsters Vanessa & The O's La Ballade D'o is really gorgeous and faithful, a good thing if it brings the maestro to a new young audience and the maestro brings me to a new young artist..hey why not? Overall an enjoyable romp through the Morricone legend.

OK, but not very thoughtfully arranged. Maybe I just don't see the order of it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed in Ennio Marricone's Latest March 30 2007
By Linda L. Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD was a real disappointment. It was contrived by using famous names to sing songs that should have been orchestred pieces. Yo-Yo-Ma-Plays-Ennio-Morricone was superb and I had expected some of the same quality which is not there.
