In which of the Leone`s films, by your opinion, Morricone did the best music score, and what about it did you like the most?

This is purely personal....
in 1976 (Easter Monday), I watched 'The Good, Bad, Ugly' on UK TV (BBC1.)........
...wasn't prepared for Morricone's score......!!!!!
....Can't even begin to explain how I feel about the 'Dollar' themes.......the whistling....the guitar twangs....the .....
NEED I GO ON!!!!!!!!!
........which brings me on to the thread about the fantastic 'graphics' for the 'Dollar' Trilogy........
Boy.......just sat down and watched them ........for the millionth' time ....the opening credits... the rotascope.......the colours....the music.........!!!!
It blows my mind every time that I sit down to watch these fav. films of all time.....
....is it just me... or was Leone brilliant!!!!!!!.....

I absolutely adore all the films score's for Leone's films. Ennio Morricone is really a genius. A highly talented and innovative films composer. Nobody till this day sounds like him and nobody will ever.

If I had to pick one score that I liked the best, it clearly be Once Upon a Time in the West. It has everything you'd want in a film score. The music is thrilling, touching, beautiful, exciting, and mind blowing all at the same time. It's an extraordinary soundtrack.

I can`t explane how it`s make me happy to read such comments. Those two genius deserve to be praised in this way. I couldn`t agree more with you all. If I had to pick one score I would probably picked OUATIW too. Every simple thing in this movie is masterful. But, who can choose, Leone and Morricone are so great... Once again, thank you for your nice comments.

I enjoy The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West the best.

The music to The Story of a Soldier (I think that's what it's called) was really beautiful. Morricone and Leone go together like Lean and Jarre and Williams and Spielberg.

I agree with you. Expecially, music that plays before the shootout in the GBU is tuly masterful. Better say, whole movie is masterful.

Yes, Lean was a great director, and he and Jarre were a great duo, but in my opinion no one could mach Leone/Morricone. For me they are unbelievable, unrepeatable... I can`t find right words to express my opinion about them (I don`t think that the problem is that I don`t know English language perfectly)... I think that they are totaly unique and that no one can even come close to them.

All of Morricone's music is great. The soundtracks to OUATITW and DYS are my Leone/Morricone favorites overall.

I forgot to mention Hitchcock/Hermann...a great team.

As someone who purchased his first soundtrack albums in 1968 (GBU 1st, then Return of the Seven) and listens primarily to soundtrack albums in my truck: in my opinion GBU has the best use of music in ANY film, ever.  No, not just the Ecstacy of Gold, the final shootout, "Father Ramirez", etc, the film just uses scoring better than anything else ever. 

Once Upon a Time in The West, For a Few Dollars More, and Once/America are great too, as are early James Bond films, Warner Brothers Korngold classics from the late 30s (Adventures of Robin Hood, Sea Hawk, Captain Blood), and others.  But GBU will always stand out as best music score in a film, and pretty damn great as stand-alone music (the expanded soundtrack albums, what a great find a few years ago!).
