For the Greeks, Midas was the king that had the ability to turn everything he touched into gold; nowadays we have some kings that have kept that ability, and when you put together two of them; Jack White and Danger Mouse an album like Rome gets created, add Italian composer Daniele Luppi and Norah Jones to the recipe and 18K of pure gold tracks will rise.
The album is a trip to the ’60s and ’70s Italian film scores and features several of the musicians who performed on those movies soundtracks, all recorded in Rome.
This is a beautiful album, like Danger Mouse said “It’s a very visual album” and all the phenomenal work involved in it really creates a unique atmosphere. If you dig it and its looking forward on buying it, vinyl sure its the way to go; that full rich sound will make that unique atmosphere as real as it can get.
Stoned Tracks:”The Gambling Priest”; “Season’s Trees”; “Two Against One”; “Black”; “The Matador Has Fallen”
