00:34 - Clint W. Not sure about the train scene from Joe Kidd. Unforgiven might be my favorite Eastwood western. The other Sergio Leone non-Eastwood westerns are great too.
00:18 - Erik M. I forgot about Bronco Billy, which I haven't seen. Paint Your Wagon is not really a western from the looks of it, so that one doesn't count. :P (okay, it seems I ended up talking to myself again)
00:13 - Erik M. Zaphod, I'm sure I already spammed it before but here's my Western list (IMDb): [link] All "real" Eastwood Westerns, as you can see.
00:11 - Erik M. Clint W, isn't the train scene in Joe Kidd similar... or a rip-off, of the train scene in How the West Was Won? I've only seen Joe Kidd, so I don't know yet.
00:08 - Erik M. Clint W., all the movies I just mentioned I haven't yet seen (seen nearly 40 westerns in total for the record), so I'm looking forward to them a lot. Yeah, I've heard about that train scene, which apparently is classic as well.
00:07 - Zaphod Haven't seen anything of him after Gran Torino, but that movie was indeed excellent.
00:06 - Erik M. Actually I own quite a few non-western Eastwood movies. Yeah, I'm definitely a fan, though Gran Torino was his last excellent (and interesting) movie, sadly. Wish he stopped after that one (with acting at least).
This is exactly how I like GTT. Some of the his slowest and more ritualistic compositions with rare use of drum work create what that is probably his best effort in my opinion. The only elements of GTT which I miss on this EP are those weird spoken words and samples but these are minor problems, considering that this EP is mostly instrumental. I must listen to the rest of his EPs which I have not checked yet but this EP is better than all of his (great) full length albums.
Perhaps his most "focussed" affair yet. Seems to follow a very common theme with regards to the style which seems to revolve around a more simple structure of lengthy, elongated drones and ambience. Certainly not a bad thing but I don't think it's as good as 'Preferring Human Skin...' which I feel delves much deeper into the sound whilst being generally more interesting and effective a record.
