This is one of my favorites from Isham. The unusual ensemble used for the suspense scenes (percussion, piano, electronics, and solo flute) really struck me when I first heard it, and got me interested in hearing more of his scores. The theme for Pesci's character is gently melancholic without any noir cliches. And no need to pit composers against each other, folks! (although it will be interesting to compare and contrast once the Goldsmith album arrives).

I knew when the Goldsmith one turned up it would be hailed as the superior score. Away you all go…this has always been a terrific work by Mark and combines the jazzy feel with a dark melancholia. Perfect for the film and another belter from the sensational Mr Isham!

His Black Dhalia score is fabulous. And Point Break. This one, not as engaging for me. But I’m an Isham fan nonetheless.
