Eye To Ear III is third in 13 years Frith's collection of his written and recorded soundtrack music.The first 11 titles on this CD make up The Troja Suite,dark and in moments heavy and dynamic collection of quirky compositions for Hussi Kutulcan's "Drei Gegen Troja" movie soundtrack. Frith plays guitar,bass and keyboards, and has violinist,percussionist and trumpeter on support. If by any chance you didn't know this music is originally soundtrack when listened, possibly you could be a bit surprised:besides of some well crafted compositions (few of them even have funny a-la metal guitar attacks), many are too amorphous,unfocused and openly too long. As soundtrack, this music is great illustrative sound though.

Second part of the album is soundtrack to 2004 documentary Thirst (five compositions under common title "Water Music"). In this case the title is really representative - compositions all are liquid,almost amorphous, with strong influence of ambient and world music. Happily often balancing on the new age border,music never crosses it. Frith's guitar,bass,keyboards and violin are supported there by small orchestra of Eastern winds and strings instruments.

I never saw above mentioned films,but I expect both soundtracks could really work successfully with visual line.As separate musical release,these compositions are not essential to be listened with big interest though.
