Album Review

While the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair couldn't really hold a candle to the magnificent 1967 original, the soundtrack is a little better. Bill Conti's score -- while not as pungent as Michel Legrand's original -- is still effective and probing. One of the highlights of this version is Sting's version of the classic "Windmills of Your Mind," which brings a slight (and welcome) reggae element to this song. Nina Simone's "Sinner Man" is almost as good, highlighting her fabulous blues/jazz vocals.
