First thought while watching the movie? Hmmm, this is better than anticipated. Second though? Please, let there be a soundtrack! Thoughts now? How loud can I crank the speakers in my car w/out blowing them? Enjoy! ;o)

I have watched Sahara several times and have recommended it to friends. The characters make the story POP and I wish they would do a sequel.

HASH(0x9aaa618c) out of 5 stars This is a soundtrack, not a score Sept. 3 2005
By Joshua Catone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The soundtrack to this movie was excellent. Some great classic rock (sure it's mostly pop favorites, but nonetheless a nice, tight little collection). As some reviewers have pointed out, the music is what really kept this movie afloat by adding energy to the action sequences and distracting the viewer from the cheesy, sub-par plot. The added material here isn't that great, and I always thought it sort of silly when they add music not from the movie to the soundtrack with the "inspired by" heading. Even so, it's a good soundtrack if you like classic rock... great car music that I'm sure will make it into my rotation during commutes to work.

One thing that needs clarification, apparently, is that this is a soundtrack NOT a score. There is a difference. Soundtracks consist of pop-music-type songs that appear in movies but were not written expressly for the movie (for the most part), whereas the score is the music composed FOR the movie. I have not heard the score for this movie (though it is available, and Clint Mansell is an excellent composer, so I'm sure it rocks), but I tend to think much of the African music was part of Mansell's score. So if you're looking for that, check out the score CD, rather than the soundtrack.

HASH(0x9aaa61e0) out of 5 stars What happened to the music from Africa? May 1 2005
By milomannn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For a rock and roll album this has some good tunes but what brought me to look for the album was the great music with an african sound. There is only one cut with this beat. The producers missed a good opportunity to be unique.

HASH(0x9aaa6618) out of 5 stars Missing the African music? Nov. 28 2005
By N. Weis-Sanfo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I personally was excited for the CD to come out but like many, was disappointed not to see any African artists highlighted considering it takes place in Africa. (I don't count the last song since it's not even credited to an African artist.)

Although I didn't stay for the movie credits, I did recognize a few songs and can recommend a couple more Malian artists. Check out the following albums: "Niafunke" by Ali Farka Toure, "Sou Ni Tile" by Amadou & Mariam, "Baro" by Habib Koite, "Mouneissa" by Rokia Traore, "Moffou" by Salif Keita, and "Tassoumakan" by Issa Bagayogo. These are just a few of my favorites from Mali.

HASH(0x9aaa6ac8) out of 5 stars Missing the Point May 8 2005
By T. H. Frye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The excellent african tracks that were included in the credits at the end of the movie have been omitted from the soundtrack. Those pieces of music were the essense of the movie. 70's rock tunes are great, but didn't have much to do with the vibe of the plot. This is strictly a commercial album and should probably have A Pepsi ad on the cover.
