Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Having pulled often-stellar duty in both genres for many a year, film-scoring vet Alan Silvestri should know if the show-biz adage that drama is easy, it's comedy that's hard is true. For the Brad Pitt/Julia Roberts comic-romantic adventure The Mexican (the title refers to an antique pistol that must be smuggled back across the border), Silvestri taps a little of his recent history--and some sage genre insight--to conjure up a breezy, playful score that evokes everything from Leone's Dollars trilogy and traditional Mexican folk music to pastoral jazz flourishes and club kitsch. But a decidedly Morricone-meets-Bacharach sensibility prevails throughout, with the composer often lovingly tweaking the familiar banjo, harmonica, and choral clichés of the spaghetti Western into music that is refreshing even as it is strangely familiar. A handful of pop songs adds another layer of loopiness to the proceedings--especially the remix of Men Without Hats' chestnut from the early 1980s, "The Safety Dance," and the sprightly "El Cable" by Mexican exotica master Esquivel. --Jerry McCulley

Format:Audio CD
I thought the sound track to the movie was a great complement to it but after I bought it I felt that it did not stand up by itself very well. Its themes seemed too short and disjointed. But, I plan to play it on my CD player in random mode along with other CD's. Then I think it can complement the music it is interspersed with - depending on the music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing!! July 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really like this film and thought the original music was just beautiful. Unfortunately, the soundtrack provides full versions of prerecorded songs (These Boots..., Why Can't We Be Friends, You're Nobody...), which I didn't really care about, and only snipets of the music I bought the CD for. Most of the tracks on here are less than a minute long. I would just start getting into one and it would be over! I was so disappointed I don't think I will ever listen to it again, and consider it a waste of money. I'd rather watch the film again, just to hear the music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack for a good movie March 5, 2001
By J.R.
Format:Audio CD
The Soundtrack for "The Mexican" is not necessarily one of the greatest soundtracks ever made, but it does capture the essence of the movie. The distinguishable guitar plucks and the internitten catchy songs are great. Overall...if you liked the movie, you should like the soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Fun March 5, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Hot Fun is the best way to describe the soundtrack to The Mexican. It's fast paced, boisterous, and makes for great listening on any type of trip. Be prepared for drives to the grocery store to become a lot more exciting! The mix of vocal and instrumental selections add to the versatility of the disk and give it a unique flavor. Even if you haven't seen the movie, this CD would be a great addition to any CD collection!
