Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

It's hard not to start feeling sentimental after hearing the loose collection of love ballads that comprise the Notting Hill soundtrack. The romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant is filled with the modern sounds of love--as sung by everyone from pop harmonizers (Boyzone, 98 Degrees) to classic soulsters (Bill Withers, Al Green). The Spencer Davis Group's "Gimme Some Lovin'" adds a garage-rock edge, but if you're not up for slow-burning love tunes, this soundtrack probably isn't for you. Two guitar-based score tracks from composer Trevor Jones fill out Notting Hill and add nice instrumental touches to the disc. --Jason Verlinde

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mix for forgotten romantics December 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I never considered myself a romantic but I really love this soundtrack. The bonus track "Everything About You" is a surprise good one, with what I thought was a line stolen from the movie White Men Can't Jump ("I love the way you bring me water when I'm thirsty in your bed"), a couple of oldies but goodies thrown in and unlike some instrumentals the ones on this CD are quite effective and not an automatic "skip" although pretty dry. A particular favourite along with "Everything About You" for me is "She" by Elvis Costello, and "Gimme Some Lovin'" is a good car ride song (makes you want to drive right on over to your boyfriend's place :)) Boyzone's "No Matter What" is fun to pay out and sing along to especially that all too distinctive Ronan Keating's voice "No matter where they take ush" and isn't anyone sick of "When You Say Nothing At All" yet? Actually this is just a fantastic CD for sitting around at home in your underwear alone, turning it way up and singing at the top of your voice. Too 'uncool' to take seriously, it's a great change for unwinding. Damn good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Love Album June 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
First off, let me say that I give the album two thumbs up and highly recommend it, both to fans of the film, and also those looking for a good, semi-predictable but also fresh, romantic cd which makes good background music for kicking back and thinking about love.
There are enough differences in the songs to keep it interesting, but they go together well too.
Although I'm not usually a fan of "boy-bands," and the like, I find I like all the songs on the album in their own way. I love hearing the first few beats on the cd, which really set the tone for the whole run of songs. That songs lyrics are also good, ie: "No Matter what the ending, My Life Began With You." Shania Twain's "You've Got A Way" is beautiful, Elvis Costello's "She" is haunting, poignant, and very reminiscent of both Julia Roberts as Anna Scott in the film, and of all those other women out there who are so fetching and so loved that all those little inconveniences kind of fade into the distance, ie: "She... could turn each day into a heaven or a hell." But he still loves her, right? Perhaps even loves her more.
Then there's the "The Smile on your face lets me know that you need me/the look in your eye saying you'll never leave me/ the touch of your hand says you'll catch me whenever I fall/ You Say It Best, When You Say Nothing At All" song. No comment needed, that one's great!
The two versions of "Ain't No Sunshine" are a nice touch, and in a way kind of reflect the tone of the album. The songs oscillate between being reflecting happy, current love, and love that's been lost (which reflects the film itself). But that's what's so great about the cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mix of tunes December 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed the movie and noticed the ideal placement of songs, so I went for the CD. I thought every song was strong and was intrigued by the inclusion of Elvis Costello, a much under-rated, but adored artist. Reminded me of the movie which is a testament to great use of music to support the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good mix of music to a good film December 31, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I saw this movie in the theater and while it was very good, I found myself paying more attention to the music. The end of the film where they play "She" by Elvis Costello and you see them walking along and sitting in the park, just enjoying life, that is one of the most touching moments I have ever seen on film. That song is simply beautiful. You'll realize after listening to the lyrics that most love songs are very poorly written in comparison. Kudos to the guys behind getting it put on the soundtrack- it saves it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind soundtrack February 17, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am not the one to run out and buy movie soundtracks..I do not even consider myself to be a romantic. Nevertheless, I've watched the movie twice and was completely taken. The song by Elvis Costello reflects every woman's hidden hope that one day we meet someone who loves us against all odds...

First off, I'd like to say that this is an amazing film. I've only seen it once, but I will be going to see it again very soon. The best way to describe it is that if it doesn't make you feel totally loved up by the end of the film, then you must have a heart of stone! With regards to the soundtrack, I've got one word for you: WOW!!! It is perfect for the film. It is probably the most impressive collection of love ballads that I've seen on any music release, and it's versatility is amazing in a way that it explores every emotion of we call LOVE!! 'When you say nothing at all' and 'From the heart' are wonderful tracks, and 'I do (cherish you)' came as an extremely pleasant suprise. Also I don't think that the Lighthouse Family could have done a much better job with Bill Withers' classic 'Ain't no Sunshine' (not to say that Bill's version is any worse though). All-in-all, this makes for the best soundtrack of the year, and maybe the best that I, personally, have seen yet!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A very nice Soundtrack for a good film June 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
My wife and I saw the movie in the theatre and purchased the movie on DVD and the soundtrack. We enjoy many of the songs on this CD. My favorite is "Say Nothing at All" by Ronan Keating, (one of the Boyzone members). The version of Say Nothing at All recorded by Allison Krauss and Union Station tops this version, but still a great recording. Boyzone's "No Matter What" written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Shania Twain's "You've Got a Way" are used in the closing credits of the film and two great songs. Bill Wither's great song "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" is perfect for one scene in the movie. The bonus tracks were added as fill since they weren't used in the film. Techno version of "Ain't No Sunshine" is okay. Costello's "She" isn't a favorite of mine. I believe his voice isn't right for this song. Trevor Jones original musical score I believe is especially nice. Al Green's "How to Mend a Broken Heart" is used well in the film, but does not appeal to my tastes. Hope you enjoy the CD and have seen the film.
