Bad Girls-Bad Movie-but VERY good score! Mr. Goldsmith.....genius!
by

While I admitt that I never knew much about the film upon buying the extremely rare soundtrack, it made no difference to me how bad or good it was, because whenever there is a Goldsmith score, there is something to be interested in. The score touches on the delicacy and the roughness of the women depicted in the film. I knew Goldsmith would make the score worth hearing, even if the film was not worth seeing. I still haven't seen it, and I have no desire to. All that matters, is that I have the soundtrack by the all wonderful Jerry Goldsmith.
The first track "The John" is a soft, western epic feel, and it is the theme, which is a sweet, lushful piece of music. It plays this variaton well, and soothingly. The next song, "The Hanging" is a fun track to hear, certainly one of my favorites. It has it's rough moments, seeming to express a harsh conflict within the moment of which it was scored for, but the theme kicks in, and is played out more wild and free, with a flattering tamborine, much like the theme to "Supergirl"-which was a SUPERB movie, as well as score. Song three, "Bank Job" seems to be more tight, or tense, although a moment early on has a string based variation on the theme. The last moments of the cue seem to represent a chase? As I said, I have not, nor do I wish to see this film. The fourth song, comes from the ONE scene I did see, involving some conniving way to break the girls out of jail, and because this is like a game to the characters, the song is played out in saloon style piano based sound, with a fun and fancy free attiitude. "No Money" seems to be a moment when the film takes on a more serious feel, or tries to anyhow. It is good to have the range of the score spread out a little, so we don't hear the theme over and over again. "Ambush" is a terrific brake from the soft sensitive feel we hear previously. It has a tough feel, and a quick rush of several instances when the film must obviously have action taking place. "I Shot Him" seems to be more tense than anything else. I am guessing a moment when the realization of a horrid act catches up with one's conscience, and this character feels so torn by it all. It's great piece of drama on music just the same. "Joshs' Death" sounds like a confrontational moment, where the soft moments, and the jerky moments of Goldsmiths score tend to make the uneven feeling enhanced. "No Bullits" sounds like the end of the line, but still strong. The final piece, "My Land" is a very dramatic cue, including the theme, of course, and I guess it is the end title...but I'm not sure. This score as a whole is one HECK of a fun listen, and it keeps you involved all the way! It seems to suit the film, even if the film is bad, just like it's characters. Still, Jerry Goldsmith was a genius, and most of his scores are well worth it.

My Jerry Goldsmith Guiltiest Of Pleasures
by
Luis M. Ramos (July 8, 2003)
I found "Bad Girls" to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen, and somehow, it made me wonder how come Jerry Goldsmith came up with one of his best compositions ever for this piece of crap. When I found out that the movie was bad, I decided to focus on the music for the remainder of it.
For starters, the main theme is one of the best main titles Goldsmith has ever written: touching and epic at the same time. The action moments are fantastic, especially in 'The Hanging', 'Bank Job', 'Ambush', and 'No Bullets'.
You can call me crazy, but I think this is a fantastic score. In fact, I'd like to call it a guilty pleasure because, in spite of being written for a lousy film, I virtually listen to this CD twice in one playback. Frankly, I don't care what everybody says: the movie is bad, but Jerry Goldsmith's score is truly remarkable.
