The first album from the Alloy Orchestra, a Boston-based trio devoted to the creation of new soundtracks for vintage silent films led by the late Caleb Sampson, is a sampler of passages from a variety of scores intended more as an overview of what the group can do than a complete artistic statement of its ow. Thrilling and often quite humorous, the music on Silents is of interest even to those who aren't particular film fans.

The opening "Plain Crazy," the complete score to a five-minute comedy short, has a manic giddiness comparable to Raymond Scott's wilder work (the use of duck call at one point sounds like a direct Scott homage; a similar passage using a squeak toy recalls the Bonzo Dog Ba. .
Seeing the Alloy Orchestra in person playing one of their original scores while the film is playing on the screen is an experience I always enjoy. Whenever they're in town, I round up friends and relatives to watch METROPOLIS, NOSFERATU, or some other silent classic. The Alloy Orchestra did an atypical score with a spooky waltz for the main title. The other selections for the film are also haunting, yet quirky - not like anything you'd expect for a typical score for NOSFERATU. And that describes their scores perfectly - they're quirky, beautiful, and very appropriate. I thoroughly enjoyed this album, the performances are vibrant, lively, original, and breath life into the old scores. The instrumentation has a great "organic" feel. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is interested in old film scores particularly silents.
