Album Notes

Original score by David Holmes.

While the 1998 crime caper OUT OF SIGHT was the first film to bring together a suave George Clooney character, the maverick vision of director Steven Soderbergh, and the lively compositions of Irish electronica artist David Holmes, the 2001 remake of OCEAN'S ELEVEN perfected--and popularized--the collective aesthetic of those elements. The soundtrack to the hugely successful heist flick deftly blends snippets of ELEVEN's dialogue and vintage pop tracks--most notably Percy Faith's swooning, elevator-ready "Theme for Young Lovers" and an energetic remix of Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation"--with Holmes's groove-oriented, 1970s-inspired originals, resulting in an album that successfully captures the mischievous verve of the movie, particularly on the cool, calculated, and exceptionally funky "Boobytrapping."
