Rome

I am sitting round listening to Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi's Rome, an album inspired by films made in the sixties, with particular homage to spaghetti westerns. The concept appealed to me so much that I bought the album, even though Jack White and Nora Jones were on it. Not that I have anything in particular against those two, though a little Jack White goes a long way, in my opinion.



I can't decide if it entirely does what I want it to do as an album. Maybe I should be surprised that it even vaguely interests me, but still, there's moments when I reckon it just misses what it wants, though by and large I think I will admit that it is fairly successful.
