Gothic Dramas

Ennio Morricone

Here's more of Ennio Morricone's signature disembodied, little-girl voices vocalizing the creepiest la-la-la's you'll ever hear. Written for television, this is a very nice collection in which less is decidedly more. "Follia nella Strada" and "Fuori della Realta" mix grim atmospherics and child-like worldless melody lines. Those into Morricone's more popstatic work won't find much to their liking here, but the atmosphere sure is convincingly chilly.
