This is a good overview compilation if you're not that interested in the final tracks from the film, which are missing from this CD either for copyright purposes or whatever. This CD contains about 75% of the score and the major songs played during the film. This disc is great, my low score is due to the fact that, even if say "Street Fighting Man" by The Rolling Stones was kept off and the other three featured, I would have been 10x happier. So I basically made my own V soundtrack. For those of you wondering what tracks are missing they are:

The 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky (sp??) which *SPOILER* plays during V's blowing up of Parliament and the Old Bailey.

Ethan Stoller's "BKAB" which plays right after Street Fighting Man during the credits. You can find the song on his official site or MySpace.

Spiritualized's "Out of Sight" plays immediately after BKAB in the credits, this one can be found on their "Let It Come Down" CD

and THE ULTIMATE MISSING TRACK:

The Rolling Stones "Street Fighting Man"

Get those 4 missing songs and this CD and you just might have yourself The Complete V for Vendetta Soundtrack. I hope this helps you out.

Actually, the 1812 overture part from the movie, the exact part IS in the last track of this soundtrack labeled Guns and Knives and Cannons too. It plays at the very end of it! So if you are worried about not hearing the 1812 overture, it is there!

I was very interested in the movie V For Vendetta so as a result and being a fan of movie scores I said to myself: "I'll pick up the V for Vendetta score.."

So I pick it up, and what a surprize it was. This score is magnificent. It opens up fast, and ends fast. I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to describing scores but let me just say, this is a keeper. It's catchy, and fast. It's an amazing score and works stand-alone from the movie. You'll find yourself listening to it a lot.

Also..what's sad is that the "Spotlight Review" isn't even correct. First: The 1812 Overture IS on the soundtrack. Second: It's not surprizing that the songs in the end credits aren't on it, I wouldn't expect them to be. Besides, if you don't have the Rolling Stones song just by the CD it's on..Chances are you'll like it.

Overall: This score was a surprize to me and I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is. I would suggest everyone who enjoys movie scores check out Dario Marianelli's score for V For Vendetta.

I bought this two days after seeing the movie due to the fact that more than a few of the songs from Dario Martinelli were stuck in my head.

The first day, alas, was dissapointment. I got through the first five tracks and besides Julie London's beautifully sang "Cry Me A River" I wasn't impressed. But I decided to stick through it. Second day, I listened to tracks 5-10 and abruptly there was a lot more for me to be happy about. All these tracks start rather slowly, and I think originally that's what put me off. But if you wait a minute, or just enjoy it where it is, suddenly you'll feel a lot better about what you're listening to. The theme in "V" is rather catchy. It's dark but fast-paced, and I think that's what I appreciated about it.

Remember, Remember: Eh. Not exactly the best start. The crack of the drums is nice, but altogether it's a little too slow in the beginning to give attention. Give or take a minute and it get's more interesting, with the theme underlying all the strings and whatnot.

Cry Me A River: Beautiful. I love this song and Julie London has a voice reminicent of Billy Holiday. Soulful and something we can all relate to, this is a great track to cool down to.

"...Governments Should Be Afraid of Their People.": Not bad. The main theme sticks out in this one, and we get a look at the dark mood that prevails throughout the entire soundtrack and movie. Once again, if you're patient, the brilliance pops through.

Evey's Story: Not one of my favorites. The switch between the fast-paced violence of Evey's parents being black-bagged and the quiet memory in the beginning is a little too abrupt for me to really get into and adjust. I don't find myself liking the blaring of the French horns in this one, though in others it's fine.

I have no words for this soundtrack. More importantly, the praise goes to Dario. He has done two amazing soundtracks in the last year now that I think should get high amounts of praise.

Just last year, he completed the score for Pride and Prejudice. I think the movie was so/so but the soundtrack was beautiful.

But with V for Vendetta, I did not know he could get this dark! I think just by listening to this you can just invision parts of the movie. If you have not seen the movie, you can feel by the music how the character is feeling. The power of the tyranical goverment, the letter by Valerie, and most importantly, the climatic finish ending with "1812" Overture.

The two songs that I want to point out, "Cry Me a River" and "I Found a Reason" are played on V's jukebox at the begining and the end of the movie. They are so beautiful, one of the reasons I also bought the soundtrack. I am a fan of slow jazz music from the 40's, so hearing Cry Me a River being played... Wow.

If you are a fan of Dario Marianelli (Pride and Prejudice) and if you liked V for Vendetta (or if you didn't) the music is still amazing. Get it.
