Bombay the Hard Way combines the production and beats of producer Dan “the Automator” Nakamura with the groovy, vibrant, and mysterious music from classic Bollywood productions. Whether the music is whisking me off to exotic desert lands, a GoGo club filled with the criminal minded, or an action packed race against time, the album, loaned to me by a co-worker (thanks Sarafina!) has been easing me through the work week just fine.
Peppered with bits of dialogue lifted from the films like, “Sorry baby, better luck next time”, “I'm a gambler!”, and my favorite, “What?! There is a time bomb inside of 125?!” the album totally puts you in the mood to watch some vintage Bond-inspired action, or at least hope that Joel Hodgson and Mike Nelson can also get their hands on these.
It's a great companion piece to previously recommended Crime and Dissonance by Ennio Morricone.
