5.0 out of 5 stars This movie would have been so much better if... Aug. 23 2003
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
the director, let Pink Floyd and/or Jerry Garcia do the whole soundtrack.
First, to those who want to buy or already own the CD, pay no attention to the other songs on the disc besides the songs from Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia.
First, the tunes from Pink Floyd;
"Heart Beat, Pig Meat" might as well be called the Father of "Speak To Me" from Dark Side Of The Moon, for that both the former and the latter have the same format, sound effects of nothing to do with nothing over a laid down backbeat. This song was used as the introduction to the movie where a bunch of hippie radicals were discussion politics and the government.
"Crumbling Land" is drastically mis-labeled by David Gilmour in the liner notes by saying that the song is a "regular country-western tune". I'd say that, that is utter bulls&!t. The song is absolutly no way country or western, that is the label that is given to other tunes on this album like "Tennesee Waltz" by Patti Page. This song is more folk-rock, then country-western. When I listen to this song it reminds me of the open road, soaring down I-95 in the back country of Pennsylvania or New York, watching the miles fly by, and seeing rolling hills pass me by. Isn't that what the title itself refers to? On this song we get multiple layered harmonies by David Gilmour and Richard Wright, which is something that had to have inspired Crosby Stills Nash & Young.

Without a doubt, this is one interesting soundtrack due to the diverse line-up of contributing artists. The best songs would be the three Pink Floyd numbers "Heart Beat, Pig Meat", "Come In Number 51", the somewhat country-like "Crumbling Land" and the Grateful Dead's "Dark Star". A total of nineteen cuts on this 2-CD expanded reissue of the 1970 film score. 'Zabriskie's Point' displays each artist's full-hearted attempt to provide a decent piece for the movie's love scene on the beach. But apparently none of the songs were suitable for the film's director Michelangelo Antonioni. It's been noted from Floyd bassist Roger Waters, "It was a sheer hell, there was no pleasing this man whatsoever". With this reissue, you get four extra tunes by Jerry Garcia and four extra instrumentals from Floyd as well. I liked "Love Scene Version 6" the best. Other performers on the CD include Patti Page, the Youngbloods, and Kaleidoscope.

The "Zabriskie Point" soundtrack was re-issued a few years ago, and this is a most welcome reissue, overseen by the (as usual) reliable folks at Rhino. What originally was a single CD soundtrack now comes to us in 2 CDs.
CD 1 (11 tracks, 36 min.) contains music by a variety of artists, including 3 tracks from "The Pink Floyd" (sic). It shows the band in pre-Atom Heart Mother/Meddle mode (all Floyd music for the soundtrack was recorded in Nov/Dec 1969). "Heart Beat, Big Meat" is a great mood piece along the lines of "Speak to Me"; "Crumbling Land" could have fitted nice along Meddle's "Fearless"; "Come in Number 51" is a retooled "Careful With That Axe Eugene". Jerry Garcia contributes the "Love Scene" accoustic guitar solo. Strangely there is also a 2 min. excerpt from the Dead's "Dark Star" that starts and ends with no rhyme or reason and begs the question: why? (Deadheads know what I mean).
CD 2 (8 tracks, 55 min.) is completely new. It is divided up between 4 Jerry Garcia tracks (more accoustic "noodling"), and 4 Pink Floyd tracks. The latter are fascinating, and what makes this reissue so good. "Country Song" is another one of those classic early-Floyd ballads; "Unknown Song" (a/k/a "Rain in the Country" on bootlegs) is a great instrumental with many undertones. "Love Scene Version 6" is Pink Floyd doing the blues. "Love Scene Version 4" is Rick Wright in piano solo (even if credited to the entire band).
In addition to the new music, the reissue comes with a fascinating 40 page booklet, with great liner notes and quotes (Roger Waters on the recording sessions for director Antonioni: "It was hell, sheer hell", haha!). For any Pink Floyd fan, or anyone interested in a slice of 1969/70 psychedelia, this is very much recommended, even if (like me) you've never seen the movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars From the Standpoint of a PF Fan March 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
This album is a sort of "cult classic" that tends to be enjoyed mainly by Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd fans, and I am of the latter group. I'm afraid I'm not that much of a fan of the non PF stuff on here (though that "Dark Star" bit is quite enticing), but what drove the rating up from the 3 stars I considered giving the album as a whole, was the quality of Pink Floyd's work. Some of the other bands' works are not very enjoyable at all, and the liner notes, when describing Pink Floyd's work, seem inaccurate in places. These are notable flaws, and if I could give a 3.5, I would--but, given Pink Floyd's output, I chose to round *up*.
"Heart Beat, Pig Meat" seems in a strange way to foreshadow some of Mr. Waters' later interests in television and politics. Put in the form of a musical soundscape, however, it takes on a whole different flavour from his later lyrical harangues in Amused to Death. But, the ultimate message seems to be the same: the utter inanity of it.
"Crumbling Land" is a beautiful ballad that, although I can't hear clearly enough to be sure, seems to benefit from multiple layers of vocals including both Mr. Gilmour and Mr. Wright (the same combination that makes "Echoes" or "Burning Bridges" so beautiful). Unfortunately, no lyrics for this or any other song come with the album, so on some of it we're left to guess! But, what I can hear sounds beautiful, and the music certainly is wonderful. It doesn't seem at all "country-and-western", as it is described in the booklet, however. Other (non PF) songs on this CD seem more suited to that title.
"Come In Number 51, Your Time is Up" is a remake of the Pink Floyd staple "Careful With That Axe, Eugene.

Pink Floyd on another soundtrack? Why not! The creations for this War-Farce movie were experimentative creations of the band and are very hard to find. Read more

There are two possible questions that could be asked here:

2. I already have the original, should I now buy this. Read more

This soundtrack has high and low points (much more high points). As low points, I can include the Kaleidoscope's songs (straight-forward country). Read more
