Well, they can't all be gems.

But it's interesting to note that Price ended up working with Scorsese, someone who also uses music is sometimes very effective and dramatic ways. Imagine a Pelecanos book adapted by Price for a film to be directed by Scorsese. Now that would be some soundtrack.

Maybe Nick Hornby can do some additional dialogue.

And speaking of Scorsese, I'm still not sure how I feel about the ambitious and defiantly over-the-top GANGS OF NEW YORK (though DiCaprio was woefully miscast), but the soundtrack definitely kicked.
