Product Description


This 1991 companion to German director Wim Wenders's film sets a high water mark for the intelligent use of cutting-edge popular (and we are using that term in its broadest sense) music on film, deservedly cracking onto critical lists for the best releases of that year, period. The contemplative thriller's setting at the end of the millennium is answered by a remarkable repertory of artists including Talking Heads, Neneh Cherry, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello, REM, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Patti Smith, Jane Siberry with k.d. lang, T-Bone Burnett, Daniel Lanois and U2, a de facto dream team. Nearly all these performances were unheard at the time of release, and beyond the evident marquee lustre there is an underlying cohesion to the sense of yearning that prevails. Both Cave and U2 build powerful songs around the title theme, Elvis offers a brilliant Ray Davies cover, and the Siberry/lang classic, "Calling All Angels", summarises the spiritual underpinnings of this thoroughly modern, ultimately timeless classic in film music. --Sam Sutherland

5.0 out of 5 stars Can still make me quiver... July 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd the day after I went to see the movie and I remember listening to it over and over again driving my poor roommate nuts. Well it's been well over a dozen years and last night I dug it out and listened to the entire album. All I can say is Wow! I cannot believe the cd was still able to make me laugh and cry during all the same songs. 'Days' is definitely the BEST Elvis Costello song ever, but every song here is pure joy.
Realistically there are are very few perfect cds that could be considered as a DID, (desert island disc), this however, is one of mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST SOUNDTRACK EVER Aug. 10 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, and I don't overestimate it I hope - the greatest soundtrack of all times.
If you're hesitant about buying it, here are a few sales promoters:
- I didn't like the movie. Although the idea was amazing, there were a few problems there (lead actress gave dreadful performance, movie too long, people in it too serious, on the edge from becoming ridiculous, etc.). The soundtrack, however - impeccable.
- If you're not into soundtracks - it's not full of vocal-less tunes, but more of a compilation of songs, with a few short intervals in between.
- The cast of the soundtrack is impressive, but all artists gave songs of theirs that were never singles, a few can't be found anywhere else.
- Despite the variety of artists and multitude of tracks (19), the album is amazingly harmonious, and maintains a certain mood. It's therefore a great atmosphere CD, as well as a great driving CD. I wouldn't even change the order of the songs, that's how well everything here was thought of.
Many REM fans will agree that this song here is one of their finest ever, and it doesn't appear anywhere else. The dub remix to Neneh Cherry's 'Move With Me' is amazing, and I'm not a fan of hers. 'Days' sung by Elvis Costello, as well as Nick Cave's inning, are both painfully beautiful. 'The Adversary' is probably the best track. The only disappointing track is the one by Depeche Mode - could have chosen much better from their repertoire.
Buy it now, and you won't regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have! May 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best soundtrack collections ever produced as well as a superb film. It's a unique collection of the best "true" alternative music from the early 90's when alternative wasn't main stream!

5.0 out of 5 stars We come from a blue planet, light-years away April 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well, I'm certainly not going to spoil this album's perfect 5-star record thus far. "Until the End of the World" is the soundtrack to a so-so Wim Wenders movie (although to be fair, the film appears to be the victim of heavy editing, which renders the action sketchy and incoherent). The soundtrack, though, is a masterpiece of theme, mood, and sequencing. The songs flow into each other seamlessly, often it is difficult to tell where one piece and the other begins. Don't mistake the seamlessness for monotony, however: the songs are wonderfully diverse-it's a miracle that Depeche Mode, Jane Siberry, Can, and T-bone Burnett songs can all work together on the same album. Trip-hop, torch songs, acoustic blues, and postpunk all butt up against each other, proof positive that genre matters less than quality.
Other film soundtracks, such as Saturday Night Fever, and the Big Chill, capture a certain zeitgiest, make a bazillion bucks, and get their VH-1 retrospectives. Others come in quietly, sell steadily, and linger in people's album collections, sounding fresh every time they are played. UTEOTW is one of the latter group. "Calling all Angels" still gives me a chill when I hear it. The ironies of "Humans from Earth" still produce a giggle. Maybe best of all, "A fifth of Beethoven" and "Boogie Shoes" are nowhere to be heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attention Can fans!! Nov. 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first would like to echo the positive views of the other reviewers here--I don't like soundtrack albums as a rule, and I have never seen this movie, but this album is simply wonderful. It has the last released track by Talking Heads (the terrific "Sax and Violins"), and top-notch cuts by U2, Daniel Lanois, Depeche Mode, and the others. There is not a bad song on this album, it is beautiful, cohesive, and atmospheric. But for appreciaters of the seminal German band Can (who did soundtracks in the '60s and '70s for Wenders earlier films) this soundtrack is most notable for the inclusion of the last track I know of by that band--the sumptuous "Last Night Sleep." The track was presumably recorded during the sessions for the "Rite Time" reunion album, but IMHO is better than any track on that album. Even if you're not a Can fan (as most aren't), this album is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than a soundtrack... Aug. 20 2002
By A. Ort
Format:Audio CD
Many soundtracks are popular because of how well the music fits in with the movie and it bring back images from the movie thus their popularity. This one, however, stands on its own.
I saw the movie a long time ago and bought this soundtrack primarily for the music interludes containing pygmies singing. These clips are beautiful and haunting. But they make up a very small part of the album.
Then I listened to the rest of the album! Some of the best songs (in my opinion) from various artists such as R.E.M., Julee Cruise, Jane Siberry and Talking Heads are contained herein. The only popular song is the U2 song which is also the name of the movie.
I have listened to this album so much (and have seen the movie so infrequently) that I can not even remember where most of the songs occur in the movie.
If you are looking for a great slice of some different tracks from various artists and music that is moving and unique, don't miss out on this one. It is chock full of marvelous treasures.
