Gentle, beautiful sounds from a master composer and a vocalist from another world.
Upside of this disc is the unique combination of different types of songs and music that fit rather nicely.
Downside is much of this music is already available through other Lisa Gerrard collections.
If you are new to her sound, this is a great one to start with.

"The Insider" was an intriguing film describing the true story of Jeff Wigand and how he revealed devastating information about the tobacco company, and then how a CBS reporter named Lowell Bergman took on the fight of his career to air the story on "60 Minutes". It featured great performances by Russel Crowe and Al Pacino, and taut direction by Michael Mann, but also some very cool music too. The music added lots of tension to many scenes, although I really didn't see what the lyrics of Massive Attack's "Safe From Harm" had to do with the film's plot or theme.
However, even without the film's scenes, the music is still great. It features cool synthesizers and electronic drums for a hypnotic effect. I especially love the first track ("Tempest"), which reminds me of the scene where Russel Crowe is watching the "60 Minutes" segment while thinking of his wife and daughter. Just like the "Pure Moods" series, this music is great for listening while you read, write, draw, or study.
My only reason for the 4-star rating is that the CD cover never mentions how long the songs are, and therefore I was a little surprised to discover that "LB In Montana" and "Palladino Montage" are about 40 seconds long, while "Safe From Harm" and "Sacrifice" clock in at about 8 minutes each. But this is just a minor problem, and until a "Pure Moods IV" is made, this CD works just as well.

Excuse me, people. I only read about this Martinez-guy, but the film credits mention Michael Brook, and if you ask me, most of the musical contribution is from Michael Brook, who worked a lot with Brian Eno. If you like this soundtrack check out Michael Brook albums. He did some more soundtracks like ALBINO ALLIGATOR. He also did a soundtrack for a film called CAPTIVE in 1985 which is out of print. Both CDs are highly recommended if you like The Insider. Michael Brook uses mainly guitar synthesizers and if you have the chance to see him performing live go for.
And the Eno piece has been used numerous times before - see DUNE for example.
For people who like Robert Rich and dark ambient: Gaudi is awful like a marshmellow(has been mentioned above). You better check out the real stuff like "A troubled resting place" (great compilation of his best works) or Rich & B. Lustmord - Stalker.
On Steve Roach: some of his best albums in my opinion are "World's edge", "Dreamtime Return", "Well of Souls", "Desert Solitaire" and "Cavern of Sirens". Very dark and only done with guitar synthesizers is "Midnight Moon".

An absolutely haunting and wonderful soundtrack. I can listen to this over and over again.
I wonder if I would love this music so much, it it wasn't for the fact that I think Michael Mann's film is a great film. I don't say "great" very often. The film is such a great mood piece to me, and of course so much of the film works because of the acting, Mann's direction, and the MUSIC.
Love it, love it, love it...

Usually you have to see a movie and like the movie itself to be able to fully enjoy the soundtrack too. In this case both the film and the movie alone would be superb, but together it's perfect. What can you expect if you buy this album? I think it is enough just to mention the main authors of the soundtrack: Lisa Gerrard, Jan Garbarek and the Massive Attack. The music is mostly by Lisa Gerrard (ex-Dead Can Dance), so if you like Dead Can dance, it is a must. The special edition of Rites made by Jan Garbarek for the film is very good too. You may think, that Massive Attack might not fit this company, but it does, although it's style is a bit different. If youl ike this album, you may also look around for some Dead Can Dance album. The film was directed by Michael Mann who was the director of the movie Heat too. The soundtrack of Heat is great. There are two Lisa Gerrard tracks on that album too.

An excellent movie with an awesome score is always a bonus. This films score is not only beautiful but well defined. Lisa Gerrad lends her vocals and skill to make this a unique musical experience. The lead track Tempest has no lyrics but its tone and driving drums and throbbing bass tell a tale of urban bliss turned into a paranoia and surrealistic hell. The rest of the tracks all supplement this theme the only dissapointment was the Massive Attack song which was good but personally its not to my taste.

I love this album! The music by Lisa Gerrard and Pieter Bourke is beautiful and stirring. The soundtrack has two pieces from their 4AD album "Duality". Three of the tracks that I like are 'Tempest', 'Sacrifice', and 'Meltdown'. The three pieces by Graeme Revell are good, but not his greatest work. The other three artists on this album are quite good, too. I like Lisa Gerrard and Pieter Bourke, so their music being in the film did not annoy me at all. Despite the complaints of one critic, I think the music worked well in the film - adding more points to an already excellent film. If you liked the album, check out the other album that Gerrard and Bourke did together, "Duality".
