Description du produit
In 1989 Nonesuch records released the The Thin Blue Line soundtrack record that interestingly included much of the voice-over and interviews from the film. With the exception of one track the music was mixed very low and "behind" the voices. In continuing with our mission to bring you prime material from the Philip Glass archive of recordings, we decided to release the original score without the voice-over along with the extra material that was written and recorded for the film but was never used. We returned to the original master tapes and have remixed the cues to better suit home stereo playback and to take advantage of the latest digital recording technology.

I eagerly went out and purchased the soundtrack to the movie, and was quite disappointed because it was the movie w/o the picture. All the dialog was on the disc (WHY????) So thank goodness someone reworked the score using a symphonic orchestra. They were very close to the original, but some of the instrument choices were a bit "generic," that's why I could only give it 4 stars. A verbatim track from the movie w/o any dialog as a TOTALLY original Philip Glass score would be a 5 star deal, all the way.
PS--w/o means "without." Sorry for the shorthand.
The original Nonesuch Records 1990 soundtrack release of the score was a unique CD in that practically the entire spoken word soundtrack of the film was included on the CD. This made the CD an interesting listening experience which brought to mind what old-time radio shows were like. It was a unique combination of music and spoken word. Some tracks didn't have any music at all. There were also some gunshots on the soundtrack- if you would forget when they were going to happen and had the volume turned up, you could easily blow your speakers.
The unique format of the original soundtrack CD prevented it from being a CD you could listen to repeatedly, otherwise you would find yourself speaking like a crazy Texan!
This new release on Glass's private Orange Mountain Music label is music only and there are no gunshots going off as well. This enables the music to stand alone and it is a soundtrack I'll enjoy listening to repeatedly. This long-awaited version is great to play on the car stereo. There are also tracks included on this release which were not included in the film and the original CD.
The sound quality of this CD is beyond reproach and sounds far superior to the original, as recording technology has dramatically improved since 1990.
The music is dramatic, sorrowful, and it has an atmosphere of frustration about it- it perfectly captures the atmosphere of the film and the claustrophobia felt by Randall Adams as he was on death row. Yet I find the CD very enjoyable to listen to and not depressing at all. With Glass's music there is always a glimmer of hope and positive thoughts overcoming negative thoughts even in the darkest moments.
If you enjoy other Glass CD's such as "Mishima" and "The Hours", you'll love THE THIN BLUE LINE.
Thanks to the entire crew at Orange Mountain Music for this fantastic release!
Well, I can't complain anymore - and I'll gladly stop. This soundtrack - without any dialogue, thank you - is available for our enjoyment and it has been making regular rounds on my CD player ever since. For those whove not heard the soundtrack before, but have some familiarity with Glass, this music probably sounds most (loosely) akin to "Dancepieces". The instrumentation is sparse, the pieces are inventive while maintaining an openness and accessibility, and the chord changes have a tendency to give you chills (well, they do to me anyway).
There are plenty of highlights: really the first five tracks are all brilliant (the third being rearranged as Glass's solo piano piece 'metamorphisis 1'). I also really liked tracks 9, 10 and 11 (which are all extremely short peices exploiting the same chordal theme). Also, track 19 (a longer peice for strings that I don't think made it into the film or the other soundtrack) has a calm but mighty sound that I've only heard Glass be able to pull off.
There are, to be sure, a few...well...bizarre tracks that almost sound more like a Michael Nyman experiment than something Glass would do. Two tracks use jazz brushes on a snare, playing a soft swing underneath strings that are playing in straight syncopation. A mismatch, in my opinion. Another two tracks (one of them track 20 - the 'hidden' track) use a surf-sounding guitar and a peppy - almost poppy - feel akin to Michael Nyman. Besides that, track 20 uses more studio effects than I've ever heard Philip Glass use. Very bizarre indeed (but you may well like it, and at any rate, it is very different)!!
Long and short, this album is a gem, even if some of the tracks are a bit eclectic. Glass is to be commended for creating a soundtrack that is a.) this compelling, b.) this diverse from track to track, and c.) simply put, this beautiful!
