Descripción del producto
Este álbum contiene la música de la sexta y hasta el momento última temporada de la serie norteamericana MAD MEN, subtitulada ‘On the Rocks’, una de las más premiadas, exitosas y mundialmente aclamadas de los últimos años. No en vano el Gremio de Escritores de América la votó entre los grandes shows de TV de todos los tiempos junto a legendarias series como Los Soprano, Seinfeld, The Twilight Zone o MASH. Destacando fragmentos de canciones tanto de los años 60 como contemporáneas, la serie también tiene una distintiva voz musical a cargo de David Carbonara. Su fantástica combinación de música actual y jazz de la época caracteriza a la serie de la misma forma que lo hacen su diseño de producción y su vestuario. Su larga carrera incluye bandas sonoras para entre otras, “Spanking the monkey”, “El gurú del sexo” o “Chocolat”.

Creating a score for a series that captures the eclectic styles of the `60s and how they changed over the decade, has to have its challenges. What I like about David Carbonara's music is that, like the sets, props and costumes on Mad Men, it's authentic. There's no nod to contemporizing it to make it more marketable to "today's tastes." What results is music that stands on its own, written and played by its own rules.
The latest album of Mad Men soundtrack scores is called Mad Men: On the Rocks. It's a blend of new selections with some previously released tracks.
There are quite a few Mad Men albums out there, so I tried to sort them out. Basically they fall into two categories. The score albums contained instrumental background music primarily composed by Carbonara, but also a few selections by other composers that have been performed for the series soundtrack by Carbonara and the studio orchestra.
The compilations, which are not necessarily "official" Mad Men albums, are collections of hit songs and obscure gems, many sung by the original artists, from the `60s, which were either featured on the show or might have been.

* Mad Men: Night Cap (2013)
* Mad Men: On the Rocks (2013)
Compilations of Classic Songs Played on the Show:
* Mad Men: Music from the Series, Vol. 1 (2008)

* The Many Moods of Mad Men: A Musical Companion (2 Discs) (2013)
The very first album, "Mad Men: Original Score, Volume 1," is available for download but is hard to find in CD form, at least for a reasonable price, plus you can also find some of the selections from that 2009 album on "Mad Men: After Hours." I have not yet been able to determine if there was ever a Volume 2 of "Mad Men: Original Score."
Volume 2 of "Mad Men: Music from the Series" is also hard to find but is not available for download.
"Mad Men: On the Rocks" is pure, magnificent soundtrack score music. Here is the track list with comments:
1. Pacific Coast Highway*
Not to be confused with the 1969 Burt Bacharach instrumental, but an equally fine bossa nova that is a great way to open the album
2. The Man With The Miniature Orchestra
Pensive piece suggesting "Moonlight Sonata"
3. Beautiful Girls
Iconic Mad Men piece that reminds me of the theme from The Artist
4. Betty Home and Sally's Story
Tense, tightly wound, much like Betty and Sally
5. Bunny's Bop
Energetic jazz number, reminiscent of the Mannix theme
6. Hurry Into The Far Away Places
Haunting and dark
7. Drapers Ruse
Another iconic theme, with vibes and flutes
8. Summer Man
Soul searching; sounds like a trek through a hot, barren wasteland
9. The Arrival
Calm, cool, Route 66-style
10. Hotel Bossa
What the the "smart set" hears when they stay in classy digs
11. Lights Out
12. For Number Four and Anna
Don is lost and alone
13. At The Codfish Ball
Odd, disturbing waltz as if heard through a looking glass
14. Don And Betty In Rome
Even tempered with a tense undertone
15. Like A Good Girlfriend*
Bouncy and "Peanuts"-like
16. First Kiss
17. A Little Kiss
Light bossa beat, very bachelor pad
18. The New York Times
Impending trouble ahead
Don's award winning TV commercial
20. Christmas Conga*
Merry music masks the forced fun
21. Pete's Not Talking
Music for the petulance of Mr. Campbell
22. Betty's Call
It's not good news or is it someone selling aluminum siding
23. A Beautiful Mine (Performed by RJD2)*
Extended version of the Mad Men theme
*Previously released on Mad Men: Night Cap
The biggest thing I wanted was the theme which is over 5 minutes long in this version. All of the songs have a cool jazz vibe and would also make good ringtones due to their SHORT length.
I thought it also had creative aspects, for example, a rendition of a track from a famous Western movie. Just like film soundtracks can make great CDs (scores by Basil Poledouris, Ennio Morricone, Ramin Djawadi ...), this one shows that TV soundtracks can also be very good.
One can listen to this many times it's so melodic. As other reviewers note, it's authentic 1960s music. The music has been a key part of the TV show and it evokes the era quite well.
