Weird submitted by SaraP on July 24, 2019, 8:30pm The stark soundtrack to a film of the same name. It's stranger than his other stuff from this period. Be sure to watch the movie too... it's bleak!

A Soundtrack That Stands Alone submitted by Meginator on July 4, 2020, 12:13pm Being a soundtrack, this album captures a range of moods, all expressed beautifully by this exceptionally talented quintet. Davis’s trumpet cuts through the background to provide melodic lines that are by turns ecstatic and (more often) melancholy, with the instrument’s brightness often contrasting with the other musicians’ more muted approach. The bass carries much of the load, as well, with repeated motifs giving the album a sense of cohesiveness that carries through from the first track to the last. Effective as a soundtrack and as a standalone musical experience, this album is yet another testament to Miles Davis’s inimitable genius.
