Product Description

Amazon.ca

Mel Gibson staked $30 million and his superstar reputation on this painstakingly bloody interpretation of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, all the while dodging charges of anti-semitism and fostering excruciating cinematic gore at the expense of Christ's message (a notion that also begs some uncomfortable questions about this version's S&M undertones). But because the film's dialog plays out in ancient authentic language dialects, John Debney's musical score takes on an even more central dramatic role. In some ways an unlikely choice as composer (having cut his teeth on many a lightweight comedy and kidflick) Debney nonetheless rises to the challenge, first conjuring up a synth-laden soundscape whose gothic moodiness should be familiar to admirers of the work of Lisa Gerrard, then seasoning it with indigenous instruments, booming percussion and ancient modalities that give the score an almost palpable sense of time and place. As did Jeff Danna on his earlier score for the gentler, de facto companion piece, The Gospel of John, Debney eventually gets 'round to genuflecting towards some Hollywood choral and melodic traditions (the Gospels themselves having arguably helped lay the original foundations for Tinseltown's venerable three-act structure), but there's nothing cheap about his music of triumph and redemption, rooted as ever in roiling currents of ancient spiritual mysticism. Gibson's vision of the Passion has had many second-guessing his motivations and choices, but Debney's rich, evocative score proves there's nothing wrong with his ears. -- Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerfull! June 28 2004
By joaomsp
Format:Audio CD
I liked the movie! We have to see behind the scenes and the powerfull message beyond the images. I has so beatifull images and the photograph in wonderfull. this soundtrack is very beautifull and we can go deeper within the Passion than in the movie. It has so peacefull and insight movements in the tracks, and the female voice and chorus and atonishing. I feel myself very toutched emotionally and spiritually every time I listen to this score. I very good cd to add to your music collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Use of Duduk Armenian instrument May 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
I am just leaving this note for some person who thought duduk is an Azery instrument.Dear friend if you don't know where duduk music or duduk is originated please don't mislead other people as you are misled. Duduk is an Armenian instrument which was originated by Armenainian people. If you had a better knowledge of music or even your culture you would have known this.Duduk explains the intersting history of Armenian people in last years and after the Armenian genocide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, Moving Nov. 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love soundtracks, and have my favorites. But this is one of the most powerful I have heard. It is probably powerful because it evokes memories of the movie, which to the uncalloused heart, is an incredibly powerful love story.
The soundtrack is epic and deeply moving, from front to start. Whereas I normally skip a track or more on most other soundtracks, I listen to this one front to back. Great to work out with!

3.0 out of 5 stars All religious politics about the movie aside... July 18 2004
By Elvy
Format:Audio CD
Personally, I think the best song out of all of them was used for the movie trailer because it had a similar emotional impact the way the Gladiator soundtrack did. I have yet to see the movie myself, but what attracted me the most was the music. After listening to it, sometimes it's a hit and miss to the ears. Previous reviews I've read either rave about it, or think that it's a piece of recycled crap. It's neither in my opinion. The tracks each have their own distinct method which I'm sure was meant to enhance the scenes of the movie instead of overshadow them. Some songs I liked, others not so much (because they lacked impact). I'd highly suggest listening to the entire track in bits and pieces before buying it. Personally, I don't think it's as bad of a soundtrack as certain people are reviewing it to be. However, it's not the greatest. It has yet to compare to Gladiator's phenomenal soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Score June 6 2004
By Kenneth
Format:Audio CD
This movie wouldn't have stod a chanse of being sucessful without its wonderful score. The emotions that it delivers to the viewers are constatly present. Comparing it to another score for a film about Jesus, The Last Temptation of the Christ, this one's at lest 10 times better. A Score can really break or make a movie. This time it sureley made one. Excellent work by Debney.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Passion June 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
Great, powerful, moving music. Haunting and memorable. Echoes many of the great epic Zimmer and Horner scores.
However,
I heard that James Horner was going to compose the score then Lisa Gerrard. What happened to Lisa Gerrard? I think she would have done an excellent job. Her new album with Patrick Cassidy, "Immortal Memory" has some songs that sound as if they belong in this movie. I dunno, but I want to know why she didn't wind up doing the score.
And on the newest trailer (not the teaser with the great peter gabriel "Long walk home" song) there is a song that has the same melody of the "Resurrection" song from this soundtrack, except it features the duduk, many other ethnic instruments, and Gerrard's haunting voice. Does anyone know why this wasn't in the movie? Is there any way to get this song? Thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Breathtaking and Beautiful... May 21 2004
By Beth
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks that I have ever heard. John Debney was an unknown composer to me before first hearing about "The Passion of the Christ", and I have to say that his score for this film is equal to the integrity and beauty of many of my favorite scores, which include "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, "The Shawshanke Redemption"...Just to name a few....This score did not immediately blow me away...But after seeing the film and having my devotion and perspective of my relationship with Christ changed, I am moved each and every time that I hear this music. How anyone can even compare it to Peter Gabriel's score is completely unfounded. I do agree that the style is similar, because of the use of Middle Eastern instruments, but that is where the comparison ends. Gabriel's score uses the same melody over and over again and there is hardly any use of strings at all while each of the pieces on "The Passion" score are different and obviously mean more to the composer then just trying to be a breakthrough in scoring movies. "The Passion of the Christ" soundtrack is amazing and I hope that it will be given the recognition that it deserves.
