Ennio Morricone offers one of his best efforts for a Hollywood film, with an unforgettable main theme, a beautiful love theme, tension cues, dramatic, violent music that is also sometimes epic. The score is mainly dark and fatalistic, in a style that the Italian maestro would continue one year later in his Oscar-nominated score for Bugsy.
 
The soundtrack album of State of Grace released on compact disc by MCA in 1990 was quickly out of print. The album, remixed and edited by Morricone and his sound engineer Sergio Marcotulli for listening purposes, omitted several important passages, in addition to some cues that were not used in the final cut. More importantly, the mix made for the film was completely different from that of the album, with a positioning of the orchestra that offered a different perspective of the score. This expanded release has been newly mixed and mastered by Mike Matessino from the 3-track masters preserved in mint condition in the MGM vaults. On CD 2 we have included the hard-to-find MCA album prepared by the composer, freshly remasteredÑand it has never sounded better.
 
The package includes a 16-page full-color booklet with liner notes by Tim Greiving, discussing both film and score and featuring quotes from director Phil Joanou.
