2001: a space odyssey is an excellent soundtrack and if you loved the movie like I did than I highly recommend this soundtrack. In the movie all the songs they used were classical pieces which all sounded great and every single one of them was worth listening to.
The CD features all of the songs from the movie in the order that they come in and it features some of the same songs more than once like "Also Sprach Zarathustra" and "The Blue Danube".
"Atmospheres" is the overture song and is a great place to start the album with it's very soft horns that get louder throughout the song. "Also Sprach Zarathustra" is my absolute favorite song on the album. I love every second of it with it's loud horns and drums. This songnwas used when at the beginning when you see the opening credits, when the ape discovered that he could use the bone as a tool and when Dave Bowmen turned into the star child. "Requiem for Soprano, Mezzo Soprano, Two mixed Choirs and Orchestra" is a very haunting track with voices and an orchestra that sound very future like. This song was used when the monoliths were discovered and at "Jupiter and Beyond". "The Blue Danube" is a very nice beautiful song and it was used when the spaceship was traveling to the moon. "Lux Aeterna" is also a haunting track with some voices at throughout the song. It was used while the astronauts were traveling on the spaceship. The songs "Gayane Ballet Suite, "Jupiter and Beyond" were used when Dave, Frank, and the other astronauts were traveling on the Discovery with the new Hal 9000.
There is also some supplemental material which includes another version of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" which is done by the Sudwesfunk Orchestra instead of the Vienna Philharmonic. It also includes other versions of "Lux Aeterna" and "Adventures".

This is the best CD to date of the music and sounds of this fantastic yet most realistic film of man's future destiny in space and beyond. I was glad that much of the orignal music from the original album was on this CD. They did a good job with this one.

I think so - the only serious competitors for the title that I can think of are the soundtracks for Tarantino's Pulp Fiction and Scorsese's Mean Streets.
Stanley Kubrick was widely acknowledged as a master of selecting just the right music for his films, a gift that is nowhere better demonstrated than it is here.
Can you really picture anything other than "Also Sprach Zarathustra" accompanying 2001's title sequence? Anything other than "The Blue Danube" running behind the film's first spaceflight scene?
The reals gems here, however, are the stunning pieces by Gyorgy Ligeti. His "Requiem..." is probably the most disturbing piece of music I've ever heard; his "Adventures" (best heard in its unaltered version, which is thankfully included) among the most suspensefully comic.
Highly recommended to anyone with a passion for great music.

One of the greatest things about Stanley Kubrick's magisterial 1968 sci-fi epic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY is the cagey way he puts certain classical pieces to work in the service of the film. The soundtrack to this groundbreaking movie must almost certainly rank as the best use of classical music ever put to film, aside from Disney's original FANTASIA.
Thanks to Kubrick, no one can forget the imposing "Sunrise" of Richard Strauss' "Also Sprach Zarathustra" (as done by Herbert Von Karajan and the Vienna Philharmonic). Nor can anyone forget the scene of the wheel-shaped spaceport rotating to the strains of Johann Strauss' celebrated "The Blue Danube", or the Stargare sequence, which utilizes three works by Gyorgy Ligeti--"Requiem", "Atmospheres", and "Adventures." Although one can rightly complain about "The Blue Danube" being split into two sections on the CD, like the movie itself, the 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY soundtrack is essential listening for classical music buffs and movie music buffs alike. It comes vigorously recommended.
