Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Lisbeth Scott (vocals); Hector Pereira, Greg Doering, Tony Clarke (guitar); Martin Tillman (electric cello); Anthony Lledo (drum programming).

Composer Harry Gregson-Williams (The Chronicles of Narnia) made his first foray into the Western genre with Iron Man director Jon Favreau's 2011 adaptation of the popular graphic novel Cowboys & Aliens. The score, which fuses the patriotic action cues of Alan Silvestri with the dusty guitar- and horn-laden patina of Ennio Morricone, owes a lot to Greg Edmonson's genre-bending work on Joss Whedon's Firefly series, but Gregson-Williams strikes a nice enough balance between whimsical and melodramatic, ending up on the spirited rather than the contrived end of the spectrum. ~ James Christopher Monger
