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 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 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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks ever Aug. 4 2002
Format:Audio CD
It definitely has to be among the top 5 soundtracks of all times. This outstanding work to go along with the road movie of all times, "Until The End Of The World," by wunder director, Wim Wenders, went beyond where most soundtracks had gone before it came out (1991) and set the pace for great soundtracks to come later on (The Insider, Traffic and others).
Simply put the soundtrack gathered the cream of the music scene: opening and closing tracks in charge of Graeme Revell/David Darling; mood swings in charge of Talking Heads, Depeche Mode, Elvis Costello, Lou Reed, REM, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Daniel Lanois and U2, among others; and one of the most beautiful songs of all times, "Calling All Angels" by Canadian Jane Siberry, topping it all.
The one big missing song from this album is the very special version of "Blood Of Eden" that Peter Gabriel rearranged for this movie, in one of its most beautiful moments: when Solveig Dommartin and William Hurt's plane peacefully lands after all electronic devices fail to operate due to a nuclear explosion. Otherwise, it's one of those perfect soundtracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated?...yes. Unforgettable?...HELL yes! Nov. 30 1999
Format:Audio CD
This has to be one of the most ignored soundtracks of the decade, and the sad part of that is it is one of the best soundtracks of the century. Graeme Revell has established himself as a great film score composer with movies like "The Crow," and "Strange Days," so his music here is no less poignant and ethereal. Very fitting and beautiful. U2's "Until the End of the World" was already a great song on "Achtung Baby," so merely a different version can't hurt too much. If anything, it is the title song so how can it be bad? Depeche Mode's "Death's Door" is a peaceful little song from the "Songs of Faith and Devotion" outtakes and it fits the mood of the film and the soundtrack very well. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, the Talking Heads, and Lou Reed, all dark in their own unique ways, but essentially the best at what they do, provocative emotional music. Same with Elvis Costello and Patti Smith, and REM make for a good addition. Julee Cruise's voice astounded me when she sang for "Blue Velvet" and "Twin Peaks," so to hear it again on this album was a beautiful experience. To put it simply, this album is bursting with great music that speaks to the soul, and it complements the film appropriately. The only complaint I have is "how can you do a soundtrack album without Peter Gabriel if his song was in the movie?" Yes they got Gabriel's pseudo-partner Daniel Lanois, but where's Peter? His song in the film made it all the more visceral. Other than that, this is one of the best soundtrack albums of all time.
