However, enough of this CD makes me want to skip over the tracks that it's hard for me to get a positive momentum when listening to it. Roots Manuva's rap "Witness (1 Hope)" is more than I need to hear. Michael Price's spacey keyboard noodling on "Sleepy Shores" probably worked well in the film, but hardly stands up as a musical track. The guitar on the Kills' "Wait" sounds out of tune and the vocalist sounds tortured, neither of which appeals to me. I actually have an old vinyl album by Franco Battiato, but I didn't care for it much more than I like his laconic version of the classic Stones' song, "Ruby Tuesday." "Indian Stomp" sounds like a renegade track from "Slumdog Millionaire." Unfortunately, there is enough here that isn't worth hearing outside of the context of the film that it sinks the classic gems on this set. Taxi!
Very well done--only nit to pick is that some parents may wish there'd been a version without explicit lyrics.
The rest of the album; starts strong (Deep Purple), ends strong (Lennon), a few mediocre tracks. Depending on what you've got in your collection you might just want to download a few tracks instead of getting the whole CD, but overall it works well as a complete record and invokes some of the same gritty, cross-cultural uncertainty that the film does, which is the mark of a good soundtrack.
The Kills' "Wait" will make you fall in love with music, yet again. I'm absolutely in love with the female vocals on that track, it doesn't make much sense when you wonder why it was included in the cd but it's there to make you screech in joy. "Ruby Tuesday" will leave you dazed and confused. It's poignancy over weighs it's catchiness, "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday, who could hang the name on you, when you change me every newday, still I'm going to miss...Dont question why she needs to be so free, she will tell you it's the only way to be"
I can't stand the track "Backward" and I think the Libertines song called "Arbeit Macht Frei" is not my cup of blackcoffee. Deep Purple's Hush is not bad, it's just got one catching "Na Na Na" line about it. Roots Manuva "Witness" is ridiculously appauling. Junior Parker "Tomorrow Never Knows" is a song that reminds you of God Tim Buckley at his peak. "Sleepy Shore" is great and has no lyrics, only ultra charmed lush instrumentals!
The King Crimson track will remind you of lands you've never been to. King Crimson's music, at most times, had this fantasy like landscape of sound that is quite addictive if heard in right proportion and taste. If you like :The Court Of The Crimson King, You should go check a song called "I talk to the wind" by the same band. Being an Indian, I have no opinion on the Indian chant by Cyrus, strangely.
John Lennon's BRING ON THE LUCIE made me realize how un-aware I am of the wonders of youth and how much there is to live for. The sound is downright fun and wins you over in thirty seconds. Amazing, really.
The last track of the cd,Jarvis Cocker's Running The World reminds me of the sublime spirit of music. The vocals remind me of Pulp/The Cure at their absolute word-defying best, the lyrics are ecstatically catchy.
Although there are around 4 tracks to despise from this soundtrack, I still would give it 5stars cause the sounds are so varied and catchy. I actually think is worth buying.
Q. The Movie?
A. The movie redefines "Gallantry" and I think you should watch it for our own faring well.
