Powerful, moving, and truly beautiful musical experience Aug. 3 2005
By J. Manges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This movie truly moved me when I saw it earlier this year and I remember walking out of the theatre remarking to my friend how I could feel the music that accompanied it and how I was going to buy the soundtrack when it came out. I purchased the soundtrack and have been listening to it almost non-stop - it is beautiful, provocative, and moves you. Mark Isham did an amazing job finding the right type of music to accompany such a powerful movie - and also set the music apart - to stand on its own. My favorite tracks are "No Such Things as Monsters", "Crash", and "In The Deep." Wonderful music - wonderful movie.

The music makes the movie June 2 2006
By Rich Stoehr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There's a particular scene in the movie "Crash" that literally left me breathless when I first saw it. On this soundtrack, it is the scene that goes with track 10, called "A Really Good Cloak." Those who have seen the film probably already know which scene I'm talking about. In listening to Mark Isham's score by itself, months after haveing seen the film, I ran across that track again and found that it had the same effect on me. Just listening to the music, I became short of breath, I got chills down my spine, and at one particular point, I felt the sting of tears first welling in my eyes, then spilling down my cheeks. I was seeing that scene from the film again, as clearly as if I were watching it all over, and feeling the same thing as before. All because I was listening to this beautiful, haunting music.

After I gathered myself a little, I tried to imagine that same scene with different music, or even with no music at all. While I'm sure it would have still been a powerful moment in the film, I don't think it could have ever been so affecting, so purely poignant, as it was with that particular piece. Clearly, Isham crafted that piece meticulously for that scene, with just the right mix of wonder, awe, and beauty to bring the viewer (and listener) right to the point where I was. Quite frankly, anyone that can listen to that piece and not have it affect them at all...well, they're made of sterner stuff than I.

The thing is, the whole CD is sort of like that. The music is excellent on its own. It is ethereally beautiful in a way that we rarely hear anymore. Vocals float up out of sweeping electronic harmonies, singing words I don't comprehend but can nevertheless feel and glean meaning from. Strange, slow rhythms counterpoint with dark ambience to create rich and complex moods. Truly, just in terms of composition, this is heady stuff.

But when it comes down to it, this is still music composed for a film, and in this case, it is the music that made the film such a good one. The same film with different music simply would not have been as powerful or as affecting as it was with Isham's score. The music is married to the film and to the story it tells, and like any good marriage it manages to elevate the film to something higher than it might otherwise have been.

What Mark Isham did with the music for "Crash" is nothing short of remarkable. He has created music which can evoke moods and feelings all on its own, but once brought together with the visual medium of film, it suddenly takes on more depth and meaning, while adding depth and meaning to the film as well.

The music was made because of the movie... but in the end, it was the music the made the movie as good as it is.

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!! June 12 2005
By Vic G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The best score of the year! Mark Isham who composed the music did a wonderful job narrating the multiple storylines through a beautifully crafted score. He captured every emotion by creating a mood that extended the characters depth. I was very moved by the film and the score puts me right back in that moment. In this day of big budget movies and scores it is refreshing to hear music that actually heightens the movie experience. This CD also features the song "In The Deep" by Bird York (the great piece that plays over the final montage) along with one of my favorite all-time songs "Maybe Tomorrow" by Stereophonics. If you liked the film you will LOVE this CD. FYI, There is also an "inspired by" album that is as equally moving. WOW - they got it right twice! Nice one.

Very Relaxing June 21 2005
By C. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I saw the film Crash, I kept repeating to my girlfriend throughout "what wonderful Music". The music by Mark Isham easily stands on its own though. like Brian Eno and composers of that type, the music is best played during relaxation or study periods where you're free to let the music carry you away. 6, 8,10, and 13 are my favorites (gauranteed to move you), and Bird Yorks "In the deep" and the Sterophonics "maybe Tommorow" (steller songs themselves) round out the disk. A must buy!

This "Crash" is a life affirming experience June 20 2005
By D. Layer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mark Isham has quite simply created some of the most beautiful and perfect music ever for a film. The soundtrack is a potent and vivid reminder of the exquisite visuals from this amazing movie. If track #8 and/or track #13 do not create an out of body experience for the listener, you'd better check your body. And Bird York's haunting "In the Deep" is a mesmerizing vocal capturing the very essence of both film and soundtrack. A must- hear cd from a must-see film. Highly recommended.
