Product Description

need ref

Amazon.com

There are but two kinds of people in the world: Those captivated by Baz Luhrmann's heady, postmodernist musical romp Moulin Rouge--and everybody else. Oddly, the film's initial soundtrack release may have been the project's most traditional element, marketing a slate of pop-star contributions that gave listeners a sometimes-skewed perspective on its true musical charms. This follow-up corrects much of that oversight, offering original film versions of "Sparkling Diamonds" (the lavish, Nicole Kidman-performed medley of "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" and "Material Girl"), Jim Broadbent's and Richard Roxburgh's loopy take on "Like a Virgin," as well as the lively Offenbach "Can Can" parody "The Pitch (Spectacular Spectacular)." It also pays homage to the efforts of composer Craig Armstrong, whose quietly compelling underscore often binds the film's other far-flung musical influences together, be they stately orchestral readings of Elton John's "Your Song," a dramatic arrangement for Kidman and Ewan MacGregor's original film duet of "Come What May," or his dark, melodramatic take on Queen's "The Show Must Go On." The first Moulin Rouge soundtrack collection flaunted the film's bold, cross-genre ambitions; this one chronicles its nakedly emotional heart and soul. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars An album no Moulin Rouge fan should be without June 1, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This Moulin Rouge Volume 2 soundtrack was a necessary complement to the original soundtrack, for we fans of the movie were desperately crying out for the original film versions of the amazing songs from the movie; the first soundtrack, as great as it was, in no way satisfied us with its assembly of cover songs and alternate versions of the movie's most moving and memorable pieces. I love this album, but I admit that I am baffled and disappointed over the fact that it is an incomplete collection; all of the film versions of Moulin Rouge's fantastic songs should really be available on one album, but you will find a huge gap here with the absence of any version of the amazing El Tango de Roxanne as well as no vocal performance by Ewan McGregor of Your Song (versions of both songs are available on the first soundtrack, however). Another confusing aspect of this CD, at least to me, is the fact that the tracks fall just short of proceeding along a chronological basis; I can't help wondering why they just didn't put Meet Me in the Red Room in its proper place in the sequence of songs.
The album opens with an instrumental version of Your Song taken from the "Rehearsal Montage" scene. This is followed by what is supposed to be the original film version of Nicole Kidman's amazing Sparkling Diamonds number, a song that was rather unabashedly edited and changed on the original soundtrack. However, the voice of Jim Broadbent cannot be heard during the sequence of the song preceding Satine's wardrobe change behind the skirts of the Can Can girls, so to my mind this is not truly the film version of the song. Nicole Kidman's singing of One Day I'll Fly Away is one of the most memorable moments of the film, yet sadly the original film version is not available on either Moulin Rouge soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars They redeemed themselves when they released this CD... August 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I purchased the first Moulin Rouge CD with the same great expectations that I usually have when purchasing the soundtrack of a new beloved film, expectations which are usually shred to ribbons when I get the CD home to listen to it, only to find that many of my favorite moments from the film (songs or pieces of the score) have been inexplicably left off. This purchase was no exception to that rule. However, I was later very gratified to find that, like the makers of "Titanic" and "Back to Titanic", the music makers of Moulin Rouge had wised up and produced a companion CD which finally included a list of songs that only now can truly be called "the soundtrack album" of Moulin Rouge.

The first CD is a disappointment to movie soundtrack lovers. Not only were half the songs and score from the film left off the CD, but they took the remaining songs and made them into mainstream pop songs, blurring the integrity of songs' purpose in the film. Still, there are many good things about the first CD, such as a complete version of "Come What May" not found in the film, as well as other songs that were only snatched at, such as "Lady Marmalade" and Beck's version of "Diamond Dogs". Nonetheless, these good points can't make up for the gaping holes where the missing music from key moments in the movie should be.

However, they redeemed themselves when they released this CD. If you missed the hilarious "Pitch" and "Like a Virgin" on the first CD, which were both highlights of the film, you will find them here. Also included are the film's version of "Come What May", which is very nice to have along with the complete, pop version of the song on the first CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The First CD March 5, 2002
By "kidzi"
Format:Audio CD
I found this CD to be much more enjoyable than the first Moulin Rouge CD. I think that it's a more 'pure' CD, because with the exception of the "On Day I'll Fly Away Remix" everything has appeared in the film. On the other CD, I feel that there were just annoying promotional tie-ins such as the Beck version of "Diamond Dogs" and Bono's "Children Of The Revolution"
I basically like att of the songs on this CD. "The Show Must Go On" is one of the major pinacles of the movie, and it is sung beatifully. The movie version of "Come What May" on this disc is simply beautiful. I personally find it the most sentimental of the three versions. (There are three. One on the first CD, this, and a remix that was left out.) The movie version of "Sparkling Diamonds" is great. I love the big, brassy sound of the instruments. The orchastrations on this CD are beautiful. My favorite is the "Accesion/Nature Boy" It is very depressing, haunting, and beautiful. The only thing I have a problem with sometimes is the "One Day I'll Fly Away Remix" because it can get annoying after a while, but I still love it! "Mett Me In The Red Room" does appear in the film. It is where Christian is waiting outside of the elephant and Toulouse Lautrec says "Incredible! Straight to the elephant!" It's just a fun song. It has a very good backround instrumental that for some reason reminds me of "Puttin' On The Ritz" And, last but not least, "Bolero" When I first paid attention to the credits, I was shocked and happy. It freaked me out that right in the middle of a piano/new age style piece of music appeared a techno drumbeat. I loved it when I first heard it, and am so happy they put it on the CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete the orignal soundtrack with this CD!
I think this album is out of print now which is a shame. The original soundtrack for Moulin Rouge! was not at all a complete soundtrack. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Why is there a 2?
I wished the Moulin Rouge soundtrack just put all of the songs from the movie into one CD rather than two. Not even all of the songs are even the soundtrack.
