The Saint ~ The Saint: Music From The Motio
This '90s update of the classic U.K. television series of the '60s was roundly criticized for its murky, convoluted plotting and quirky performance by Val Kilmer in the title role of Simon Templar. But its soundtrack--a typically market-driven collection of modern pop--is actually one of the better efforts of the '90s. Leaning heavily on electronica influences (Orbital's conservative rendering of Edwin Astley's TV theme, Moby's driving "Oil," The Chemical Brothers' "Setting Sun," and others), The Saint at least holds together as a cohesive musical statement, something many similar collections can't claim. Also includes songs by the Sneaker Pimps, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Everything But the Girl, and Duncan Sheik. --Jerry McCulley

This CD is real quality. I still love it today - so much so that I bought it a few times as the ones I had before got scratched - always around the Duncan Shiek track... This was out just when Sneaker Pimp's "Six Underground" was starting to get popular (before Ministry and every other mass "chill-out" compilation overplayed it), Duncan Sheik had released a feature cd maybe the year before that did very well in the US as did EBTG (Walking Wounded). But some of the hidden stand-outs that do spark up the good memories of when I saw this movie and when I lived in England - Underworld's Pearl's Girl, Polaroid Millenium's song and Daft Punk's "Funk". "Roses Fade" is also a cut that I really like with the guitar build-up in the beginning.
I definitely recommend it. For me it is one of those special CD's that I cherish. Mind you some cuts I will pass through - but if anything it is because I had heard the songs too much in 1997-1998! (Fluke, David Bowie). Enjoy
1..Excillent tracks by some of the most modern and cuttin edge artists of today.
2..Orbital's reworking of the original saint theam is beautifully rendered and perfectly mixed to create an air tight masterpiece.
3..The track by Uderworld is one of the best jungel/dance song i have ever heard.
4..Sneaker Pimps are always a please welcome addition to any album.
5..Duran Duran, David Bowi, Fluke and Daft Punk add to this Cd an exciting array of modern rock and infectious electronic groovs.
6..The version of before today by Everything but the girl is fantastic!
I absolutely love this Cd and this is a must have form anybody who remotely understands and respects good music.
