By NeuroSplicer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 16 2008
Format: Audio CD
The ICE STORM is one of the best films ever released. Ang Lee proved to be one of our great contemporary film directors and he sure did justice to Rick Moody's book. In fact, most people who enjoyed both will tell you that, surprisingly, they prefer the film over the book. One of the main reasons (besides great directing and solid acting) is the unforgettable music.

From the opening titles, Mychael Danna's hypnotic melodies take you effortlessly two generations back, in affluent yet creepy American Suburbia. Unfortunately, the opening titles theme is NOT included in this release (hence the star withheld). I would have loved to be able to listen to it while driving without Paul's (Tobey Maguire) monologue on top but no luck.

The same is also true for a number of memorable instrumental pieces. In fact, Mychael Danna's pieces on this soundtrack are limited only to Tracks 1-3. The rest are songs from the era that make a small or greater appearance in the movie.
Nevertheless, Danna's composition and execution are so powerful that this soundtrack deserves a place in your life.

Indeed, "the void we emerge from. And the place we go to when we die".
Everything in between is music.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Not Enough Score Feb. 1 2000
By Eric M. Byrne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As I was watching the film the music of Mychael Danna's fantastic score began to come through and talk to the audience. Danna's music was telling us what the characters were not saying, but unfortunately the CD only contains two tracks of his work. Though there are nice songs for nostalgia, the CD could have been a great deal better with more of Danna's haunting, somewhat spiritual, music.

Great music, but yes, more score! Oct. 19 2001
By Rebecca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As I was watching this fabulous movie, the score was playing throughout. As you watched the naked trees swaying back and forth beneath a gray, cold sky, the music gave you a feeling. For me it gave a feeling of warmth, a feeling of familiarity. Actually, the music sounded a lot like the music in "American Beauty" which in some ways was like "The Ice Storm." The story was backed up with fabulous music, and while I love the music on this soundtrack, more score is needed. Probably the best song on the soundtrack, in my opinion, is "I Can't Read" by David Bowie. It's a powerful song, especially when it is played at the end of the movie, which is pretty emotional and thoughtful. It's wonderful.

...mixed results June 5 2002
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Loved the movie and I wish I could say the same for the soundtrack. This is one poorly compiled collection of songs that concentrates too much on the nostalgia part of it leaving out much of the music score. In my opinion that's a cheap way of releasing anything. As you are watching the movie, the persian pipe in the opening scene, which will repeatingly play through out the movie isn't included on the soundtrack...that's a bit of a mystery to me. Granted Shoplift and Finale are good tracks but they don't make up for that missing track and it's prehaps one of the most achingly sad and haunting piece of film music you will ever hear. I think that's one of the problems with nostalgic motion picture soundtracks, they often neglect the music score part of it and instead you get songs that you are more formularized with. That may be fine but I think that the instrumental tracks stir your emotions and all the other tracks are just sort of there in the background that you hardly notice. Mychael Danna is a great composer and unfortunately "The Ice Storm" doesn't showcase his talents all that well.

the music, not the film March 26 2013
By Donald E. Gilliland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It appears that I clicked the correct link to review this CD, but it also looks like most of the reviews on this page are discussing the film and not the music. Well, I never saw the film but I picked up this CD in the sale bin of a local shop recently and enjoy it quite a bit. If you lived through the early 1970s, most of the music on here will strike a chord with you. It's a weird mix of musical styles, from soul to samba, but it's a fun one and I think it all works well within the context of a movie soundtrack. It starts off slow with some slow, fairly mainstream film scores, then a below-par Bowie song (not bad, but he's recorded so many more memorable tunes), and then the tunes really start to fire with selections from Traffic, Frank Zappa, Jim Croce, Nilsson, great covers of "Montego Bay" and "Help Me Make It Through The Night" ... and more. Just to hear Cornelius Brothers& Sister Rose and Free on the same CD makes me smile. Good memories, good tunes!
