5.0 out of 5 stars Gold, if you're half as moody as me July 13 2007
By Harkanwar Anand - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Donovan's There is an ocean. Now, before I begin to say something about the soundtrack, I must tell you that "There is an ocean" is the best song on this cd. There is an ocean alone deserves hundred plus listens because it's lyrical flair. I now follow Donovan's discography quite frequently. It's a disquieting track in simple words.

The Kills' "Wait" will make you fall in love with music, yet again. I'm absolutely in love with the female vocals on that track, it doesn't make much sense when you wonder why it was included in the cd but it's there to make you screech in joy. "Ruby Tuesday" will leave you dazed and confused. It's poignancy over weighs it's catchiness, "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday, who could hang the name on you, when you change me every newday, still I'm going to miss...Dont question why she needs to be so free, she will tell you it's the only way to be"

I can't stand the track "Backward" and I think the Libertines song called "Arbeit Macht Frei" is not my cup of blackcoffee. Deep Purple's Hush is not bad, it's just got one catching "Na Na Na" line about it. Roots Manuva "Witness" is ridiculously appauling. Junior Parker "Tomorrow Never Knows" is a song that reminds you of God Tim Buckley at his peak. "Sleepy Shore" is great and has no lyrics, only ultra charmed lush instrumentals!

The King Crimson track will remind you of lands you've never been to. King Crimson's music, at most times, had this fantasy like landscape of sound that is quite addictive if heard in right proportion and taste. If you like :The Court Of The Crimson King, You should go check a song called "I talk to the wind" by the same band. Being an Indian, I have no opinion on the Indian chant by Cyrus, strangely.

John Lennon's BRING ON THE LUCIE made me realize how un-aware I am of the wonders of youth and how much there is to live for. The sound is downright fun and wins you over in thirty seconds. Amazing, really.

The last track of the cd,Jarvis Cocker's Running The World reminds me of the sublime spirit of music. The vocals remind me of Pulp/The Cure at their absolute word-defying best, the lyrics are ecstatically catchy.

Although there are around 4 tracks to despise from this soundtrack, I still would give it 5stars cause the sounds are so varied and catchy. I actually think is worth buying.

Q. The Movie?
A. The movie redefines "Gallantry" and I think you should watch it for our own faring well.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Song April 27 2008
By Sean G. Pace-scrivener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm not saying there's only one good song on this album, but most of the best tracks are widely available. This was worth the purchase just for Franco Battiato's cover of Ruby Tuesday. When I saw the film that was the one piece of music that really stuck with me (along with John Lennon's Bring On The Lucie). It's just a beautiful and slightly haunting track with lovely harmony.
The rest of the album; starts strong (Deep Purple), ends strong (Lennon), a few mediocre tracks. Depending on what you've got in your collection you might just want to download a few tracks instead of getting the whole CD, but overall it works well as a complete record and invokes some of the same gritty, cross-cultural uncertainty that the film does, which is the mark of a good soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eclectic journey Jan. 30 2007
By Ken Byers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Great Junior Parker cut of a Lennon-McCartney song, John Lennon doing a stunning song apropos of the film, plus the whole King Crimson-Pink Floyd tie in with the pig makes the CD worthwhile. The fact the music samples rap to electronica to classic rock to fun covers makes the low price a steal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vast Proportion March 18 2009
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The soundtrack set from the film "Children of Men" provides a mix of moods and styles. I bought the set because of one of my favorite Donovan songs, "There Is an Ocean," that was on his Essence to Essence CD that is out of print. When he intones, "There is an ocean of vast proportion & she flows within ourselves," it takes me away on a cloud of contemplation. Deep Purple's version of Joe South's classic track "Hush" rocks royally. Junior Parker's version of one of the least recorded Beatle songs "Tomorrow Never Knows" weaves a familiar spell, "But listen to the color of your dream, It is not leaving." King Crimson's excellent "The Court of the Crimson King" is a delight to hear again. John Lennon's "Bring on the Lucie (Freda Peeple)" shows how when he wasn't even at the top of his songcraft, he was still a dynamic singer. The set ends with the younger Cocker, Jarvis, on the unsettling "Running the World."

However, enough of this CD makes me want to skip over the tracks that it's hard for me to get a positive momentum when listening to it. Roots Manuva's rap "Witness (1 Hope)" is more than I need to hear. Michael Price's spacey keyboard noodling on "Sleepy Shores" probably worked well in the film, but hardly stands up as a musical track. The guitar on the Kills' "Wait" sounds out of tune and the vocalist sounds tortured, neither of which appeals to me. I actually have an old vinyl album by Franco Battiato, but I didn't care for it much more than I like his laconic version of the classic Stones' song, "Ruby Tuesday." "Indian Stomp" sounds like a renegade track from "Slumdog Millionaire." Unfortunately, there is enough here that isn't worth hearing outside of the context of the film that it sinks the classic gems on this set. Taxi!
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Film, Great Soundtrack Feb. 8 2007
By J. Zinke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This film was like nothing I have ever experienced, I say experienced because the film was more of an experience than an event. This is how films should be made, putting the audience right there in the thick of the action, but at the same time opening up parts of the mind that were either previously unexplored or under-developed. The soundtrack is a wonderful companion to the film; I bought it shortly after seeing the film for the second time, (saw it twice in the same weekend) and have listened to it nearly non-stop ever since.
