Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rather than settle on a standard vacation to Hawaii, the two young friends in Brokedown Palace--played by Claire Danes and Kate Beckinsale--pick a more exotic locale: Bangkok. A few thrills later, the trip proves to be more than they ever imagined. The soundtrack for this messy adventure? Thankfully, it's just as exotic as the South Pacific. Filled with dreamy dance tunes with a dark underside, this disc is a compelling mix of mostly undiscovered tunes from the worlds of alt-rock and DJ cultures. Nelly Furtado's "Party's Just Begun" is a beat-driven folk tune, perfect for lovers of Ani DiFranco. Solar Twins contribute a perfect techno cover of the Clash's "Rock the Casbah" with dance beats, while Joi's "Fingers" is another East-meets-beats hybrid. Tricky with DJ Muggs, the Asian Dub Foundation, P.J. Harvey, and even Sarah Brightman round out this solid collection. David Newman's morsel of a score is equally globetrotting, with everything from conch shell atmospherics to dance floor rhythms. --Jason Verlinde

It's hard to imagine the original soundtrack to "Brokedown Palace" (originally titled "Two Girls") sounding any more fitting than this collection of post-modern artists punctuating a storyline working on many levels.
The lead track "Silence" (Delerium featuring vocals by Sarah Mclachlan) is featured here in its full version with sweeping chants and haunting vocals. Why it's taken over two years to reach a mass audience is anyone's guess.
The other obvious choice for single release is "Damaged" by Plumb. This slice of ambient pop catches you from the moment you first hear it on film. You'll find yourself playing this cut over and over.
Other notable tracks include Sarah Brightman's anthemic, inspiring "Deliver Me", and PJ Harvey's "The Wind" (taken from her critically acclaimed disc, "is this desire?")
Often soundtracks are an afterthought to a film whereas this album only complements a well thought out movie.

When I first heard this soundtrack I was at a friends house just lounging on the furniture. I heard the first few songs and I didn't know what the music playing was, but I was very intrigued. After about the seventh song, I sat straight up and asked her, "What is this? It's so captivating?". When she told me that it was Brokedown Palace, I was surprised because I had really liked the movie and I usually buy the soundtracks to the movies I like. So I went out and bought it right away, and I am so glad I did. I could go through the songs and their merits one by one, but there are a few that especially make this album great. With it's asian inspired melodies and techno beats (but sometimes soft and piercing) it can't miss. The best song on the album is "Deliver Me", sung by Sarah Brightman (of Phantom og the Opera fame as Christine). It is powerful and beautiful. Other great songs include the Solar Twin's version of Rock the Casbah(great to dance to!), Leonardo's Bride' song (a sweet folky love tune with a voice and guitar), Plumb's song ( soft and haunting), and Delirium's song with Sarah MacLachlan. I suggest thjat you go out and buy it, and maybe someday you will have people over who will be enchanted by the CD as much as I was.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly great soundtrack! June 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I bought this soundtrack before watching the movie as I thought the song from the trailer "Silence" by Delirium was amazing and I could not find any other cd with it.To my suprise I found the whole cd to be pretty good except for one or two songs.I especially liked it because it is very different from my other cds. It has an light ambient, exotic sound to it which very much suits the movie and is great for chilling out to. I really liked Solar Twins " Rock the Casbah ", the way the haunting melody blends into the heavier chorus. I can honestly say this is the first soundtrack I have bought that made me want to see the movie and not vice versa. So if u are looking for something different get this CD. U wont regret it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and beautiful!! March 17, 2000
By A. Penn
Format:Audio CD
This CD is amazing - if you haven't seen the movie, it will make you want to see it. "Deliver Me" by the wonderful Sarah Brightman alone will make you want to rush out and rent it. There are lots of gems on this album, including the opening track, Silence, with vocals by Sarah McLaughlin. This song, that was in the trailer for the movie, drove me absolutely nuts and I could not rest until I found it. On to covering The Clash, a brave venture in itself, which was done wonderfully by the Solar Twins. What a fun song!! All in all, I'd say that this is a well-rounded CD and one that any music fan would thoroughly enjoy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Passionately, hauntingly beautiful July 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
If you've ever felt scared, or different or hopelessly lost; if you've ever cared for someone or been in search of something meaningful, than this soundtrack is also your own. Open your hearts and your minds to the passion in the artists' voices and music and you will not regret it. This soundtrack is amazing. If the movie touched you in anyway, than this soundtrack will intesify that feeling a hundred times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent April 21, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is lovely and it fits the movie so well. It's also very refreshing. 'Damaged' by Plumb portrays emotion and it is so beautiful. Other tracks I love are 'Silence' by Delerium featuring Sarah McLachlan, 'Leave it Alone' by Moist, and 'Deliver Me' by Sarah Brightman. 'Contradictive' by Tricky/DJ Muggs is haunting and exotic. I love the pop/rock songs like tracks 3 and 4. The slow ones are breathtaking. All in all, this is unforgettable and it has a captivating score.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flowing Emotions November 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have never heard such a wonderful compilation of songs on one CD in my entire life. No matter what mood I'm in, I find a reason to listen to the CD. Songs such as "Damaged" and "Deliver Me" have the ability to take me to another place if I just close my eyes~they are that intense and emotional. Nelly Furtado's "Party" is great to listen to when I'm in a good mood. There isn't one song on the CD that I would consider bad, I love it. It's been my favorite CD for months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-done! June 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Brokedown Palace" is a mediocre movie made better because it refused to play its two main characters, Darlene and Alice, as bimbos. The soundtrack for the movie is like the movie itself because it strays from mainstream teenie-bopper songs and tunes and sticks with a deeper selection of songs and a powerful score by David Newman. Songs such as "Deliver Me" by Sarah Brightman, and "Damaged" by Plumb capture the feelings of the characters in certain scenes, while the opening credits song, "Silence" by Delirium, is a powerful mix of slow beats, foreign chants and haunting lyrics. David Newman's score uses a unique blend of cultural beats and rhythms with strings and standard score material. Like the movie, the soundtrack to "Brokedown Palace" is more than what it appears to be; you will be moved.

1.0 out of 5 stars CD in poor condition (vs condition advertised)
This CD was in pretty bad shape vs the conditions listed. Many of the tracks would not even play. It's pretty much worthless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exotic fusion music...very involving.
If you've seen the movie the music will remind you of particular scenes. Taken on its own, it's a great sampling of fusion music from or based on new music from the East.
