Customer Reviews

On the fence with this. GREAT QUALITY THOUGH!So who's not a fan of this soundtrack if u love jazz and the recently deceased?First- I am just getting the feel of how soundtracks are not always what you wish for. They can thrown in parts easily dismissed and leave out best parts. It is what it is.Not super excited about the layout of the songs and doing the turntable complicates things as far as the song line up and timing.HOWEVER- the vinyl is great quality. Well- at least what I received. It's heavy and you can tell it was pressed properly with the right level of material.Not my favorite jazz line up or soundtrack- BUT- if you love this movie's soundtrack you'll get some key music.BEYOND THAT- IT IS TRULY QUALITY. Heavy vinyl. The pressing I got is perfect. I wish they had perhaps lined it up different song wise but it's still worth it. A lost expert and perfectionist. Perhaps snap this up before it's too late. Again- if you want this track- I know I received a great piece of vinyl. Heavy=good. So smooth. You can judge from there...3Essential for jazz fansI originally bought this album so I could review it for my history of jazz class final. Fans of the film will definitely appreciate the dark and moody sounds of the slums of New York, just as the film portrays it. The only problem I really had with this album is that the main theme is reused a LOT through the album. I wasn't paying attention to the tracks on my first listen through, and a couple times, I wondered if my CD player was on repeat, or if the main theme was actually 15 minutes long. Jazz fans, as well as those who enjoy film noir music, will enjoy this great composition either way, and fans of the film will enjoy this as well. Definitely one of the most outstanding film scores ever written.4A wonderful jazz album in its own rightA wonderful jazz album in its own right, this is not the Bernard Hermann sound of Hitchcock films, though there are hints here and there. As soundtrack albums go, with music written for specific scenes, I've found that most don't hold together well separated from the film, but this one certainly does!5A LEGACY OF MENACE--THE FINAL HERRMANN SCOREThis is Bernard Herrmann's final masterpiece before his all too abrupt passing, but what a legacy of menace he left behind. I have yet to hear how Scorcese get this legendary composer to score this little independant film he was making about a New York taxi driver on the ragged edge and create this magnificent musical moodscape. Even though the landscape of New York has been radically altered since the 70's this music is good to listen to when visiting the city and ought to be an antedote against the sterilized environment of Times Square and return some of the danger and excitement. It is a silly and trivial argument to say this is a lesser score than, say, Vertigo or Psycho or Citizen Kane and there will always he those who prefer one period over another. I like all the many facets of his career and both bother with what is better than what. This was an evolution of a composer probably finding no challenges in mainstream Hollywood and took on scores for Scorcese, DePalma, Cohen, and Traufaut in these final years and creating (in my opinion) some of his most haunting music. I would rank this as among his very best along with Vertigo, Farenheit 451, Psycho, Sisters, etc. The only bizarre inclusion to the CD are those weird bonus tracks that are attributed to Herrmann but it seriously doubt it as they trivialize what had gone before. One track even sounds dangerously close to a TV theme. Taxi Driver---the series??? Very bad and should be just ignored as something tacked on long after the fact of the original soundtrack.5Take a taxiGreat cd love this soundtrack5Five StarsPerfect soundtrack for a day inside, away from the nonsense outside. Love it. Fantastic film as well.5Bernard Herrmann soundtrackWhen Masters meet the talent erupts.5classicWhat makes a great film score. Well, if you watch and listen today, you'll find scant answers. Most films function on pop soundtracks or electronic cotton that is about as gripping as my espresso machine overheated.It was, of course, not always like this, and if you go back to the 1950s until about 1975, I can name you at least ten great film composers and ten times that many great film scores. I'll say Quincy Jones, Lalo Schfirin, Jerry Goldsmith, and I am leaving a lot--room fulls, of people out, just to make my point of how deep the bench was.One of the top hitters on that bench was Bernard Herrmann, who you probably know for one of a number of great accomplishments: he wrote the theme for the "Twilight Zone," and he scored most of the classic Alford Hitchcock films, including the classic shower string shriek in Psycho. Two of the 20th Century's most recognizable pieces of sound are Bernard Herrmann'sSo is the music from 1976s Taxi Driver. I probably don't need to tell you, but the film is about a cabbie going insane in 1970s New York, and, in the subtext about the trouble those retuning from Vietnam had readjusting to society that had changed on them when they were gone.Taxi Driver is one of those films you watch from the start and know that something is wrong--horribly wrong, and that though nothing has yet happened, it is going to be even worse than you thought when it does.Now there are a lot of ways to judge a film score, but here is one viable criteria: does the score make you see the movie, and even more important make you feel the film's emotions, when not watching.Well, if this is the yardstick, Herrmann's score measures perfectly across. Most of his work here is wrapped around tense a two note theme, followed by a soothing jazz interlude, and then just as you're starting to soothe, the two notes pierce once more.But so what? It doesn't matter how Herrmann gets you there, but that he does. There is a slow boil to this music, the feeling in the soft shadows that things can explode at any second. Herman is working with chemicals here: soft, deliberate, gentle. Nice to watch.But if he sneezes, if the wrong liquid drops into the wrong tube, all that softness and all that dark caution mean nothing.We all know what happens.5I would rate this his best. An amazing blend of sexy saxIf I owned every soundtrack Herrmann created, I would rate this his best. An amazing blend of sexy sax, quirky brass, and sick percussion. Not for the easy listener. More for the film music collector.5ANOTHER HERRMANN FILM MASTERPIECEBernard Herrmann is without question one of if not the best tv and film composers of all time. This was in fact is last effort and it proves to be another masterpiece. The suspense and mystery that he managed to create is unlike any other. There are many other fine articles on this work so I won't rehash all the previously written praises of this great composer. I hear hints of Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Journey To The Center of The Earth within the framework of this score, which for me is fantastic. He seemed for me to be at his absolute best when working within the suspense/mystery/thriller and fantasy tv and film score format. Some of my favorites and I do love them all are, Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, Journey To The Center of The Earth, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Vertigo, North by Northwest, ofcourse Psycho and The Twilight Zone and now I add this masterpiece to the collection. If you are a fan of incredible tv and film music scores or a Bernard Herrmann fan you must add this piece of work to your music library. Get it today if you don't already own it.John W. Shearer5
