When I had recently pulled out Hurlyburly to listen to it again, I had forgotten how hauntingly beautiful this acoustic instrumental is. Here, the Rolling Stones influence is felt, with this song right at home on any early 1970's Stones album. The title of the song is borrowed from one of the film's best lines, delivered by Chaz Palemteri's character Phil, a struggling actor who is battling urges to commit domestic violence.

What I also love about this song is the understated layering of the instruments, intertwined with a mornful blues guitar solo.

A moving arrangement, among the artist's all-time best, a must-hear track!

Up to this point I always thought of DB as a great songwriting and a pretty darned good guitarist. After hearing this album I began to realize just how skilled and artistic he is in really fitting music to a film. This albums features a lot of different musical instruments from what appear in his other work. The female vocalists on this album are awesome - their voice matches the mood of the movie nicely.

This soundtrack has new versions of two songs from A Fine Mess - A Prisoner's Dream and Black Mamba Kiss. I think both are much improved over the earlier recordings. For some reason the track listing on the cd is wacked, with Black Mamba Kiss and Ahh My Baby reversed.

The movie is really good as well. Typical great performances from Sean Penn and Kevin Spacey, and surprising ones from Gerry Shandling and Meg Ryan. The DVD has some interviews after the film, including a few comments from DB about making the music.

Hopefully if David is going to do more film work, it will be of this level and intensity, and not some ditty for a frickin rat.
