Rome, by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi (featuring Jack White, Nora Jones)

I really love this album, especially in feel and musicality. While it was inspired by the Italian directed (hence so-called spaghetti Western) movies of decades past, it has no specific plot and the lyrics and melodies can mold themselves to your own experience. However, I couldn't help but feel that some of the haunting melodies and softly desperate vocals might make for a wistful and sad soundtrack for many disaffected Catholics, hence the album title takes on a bit of irony for me (you may hear what I mean especially in the track "The Rose with a Broken Neck"). Enjoy!
