Product Description

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Memories June 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
You know how sometimes a music can conjure up memories of a time in your life that is pleasant, or not so pleasant? That is what "The Saint" soundtrack and even movie does for me. I remember seeing the movie in 1997 - and the friends I saw the movie with. The club heads, the cars, and etc.
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

1.0 out of 5 stars indispensable to the Virginia Astley collector Sept. 20 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Being a Professional Virginia Astley Fan is a full time job.It meand living your life through your favourite singer,making a commitment,wakening up each morning and realising your favourite artiste has detrmined what music you collect.Virginia Astley is MY choice over all the world's music so obviously I collect anything made by members of her family. Such as her Dad,Edwin Astley,who found himself at No.5 in the pop charts in I997 with the "Saint" theme by Orbital. This soundtrack album which contained all the other music from the film,was bigger in the States than it was here. For me,this soundtrack album is an example of something Virginia Astley has thrown my way as I need everything with the name "Astley" on it. Its mostly of music new to me but I found it quite pleasant,especially the items by the Chemical Brothers,Daft Punk and Underworld. I mean listening to music blind,as it were,is a great way of finding out whether you rate it highly and I found myself looking forward to certain things every time they came round.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Astley's big band original. Nov. 5 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was disapointed with the lack of sophistication in the film score of the Val Kilmer version of the "Saint". I was looking for at least one cut of the original bigband recording by Sir Edwin Astley from the 60's TV show. It is really much more powerful and big band jazzy than the vague references to the original score feebly quoted in the film. The original score from the British show in turn had taken snippets from the soundtracks of the 1930's "Saint" films. These early 1930's scores had snatched and transmogrified bits of StLouis blues and Claude Debussy. It all culmnated in the sound track of the TV show staring Roger Moore.Even the character's creator, Leslie Charteris, commented that Elstree Studio's score was the best musical impression of the mood he had in mind when writing the stories. Astley's composition had been out on vinyl years ago. Maybe it is time for Elstree Studios to re-release a CD version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excillent Selection Nov. 16 2001
Format:Audio CD
In, general, sundtracks to such movies can be extreamly cheezy and pathetically generic. But htis Cd stands apart like a shining star. Following are the resons why this is my favourit Cd of all time.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Good, Some Bad, But Nothing Ugly July 23 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Honestly, most of the time this CD was in my player it was on "Repeat 1" for the opening theme. The Eminent Mr. Bowie's contribution to the mix was a great commentary on someone whose sense of self seems composed from media-influences, and I still catch myself murmuring bits of "6 Underground"'s basic yet stick-in-yer-noggin rhythms. I am not a Chemical Brothers fan, though, and "Setting Sun" did not change my mind. The surprise hit to me was "Atom Bomb"; though written for an entirely different source, it does describe the deeply-hidden wild side of Elizabeth Shue's character credibly well. Overall, I'd say it's a "Keeper".

5.0 out of 5 stars tremendous.. Feb. 28 2000
Format:Audio CD
This cd is far better than i had thought it was going to be. While listening to it, it kind of reminded me of, "The Boxer, The Jackal, and Great Expectations" soundtracks. I dont know why exactly: probably had to do with the non-mainstream terrific tunes.. Being a HUGE fan of, the mozart of our gen. as i call him,DUNCAN SHEIK's #13 track, "In the absensce of sun" it positively..amazing. It amazes me that that much beauty and complexity of sound could come from one beautiful and complex guy. Wow... Buy this CD...its awesome. (* most likely, you'll not be able to get the DuranDuran song out of yur head anytime soon :)
