Product Description

The idea of remaking the Rat Pack's infamous shaggy-dog story cum Vegas heist thriller may have seemed ludicrous without a Rat Pack. But that didn't deter ever-inventive director Steven Soderbergh, who's again wisely teamed with not only Out of Sight star George Clooney, but that underrated project's Irish-born club mixer turned scorer David Holmes, as well. The resulting soundtrack is a spunky, cross-cultural joyride that careens from Perry Como's "Papa Loves Mambo" to the loopy hip-hop of Handsome Boy Modeling School's "The Projects," while paying some gratifying visits to Percy Faith, Arthur Lyman, Quincy Jones, the terminally cool Claude Debussy, and, of course, King Elvis along the way. Holmes's own concoctions are as smartly retro-hip and seamless, slyly intertwining cool jazz-funk and smoky cine-Muzak with some dance-floor grooves that keep the musical tension boiling. The sharp dialogue snippets that bubble throughout seem a quirky throwback to soundtracks gone by, a sometimes oversized olive in Holmes's inviting musical cocktail. --Jerry McCulley

I picked up this album looking to add the cool filler tracks used in the movie's score (you know the jazzy upbeat riffs) into my MP3 player mixes. You get those (and the Elvis "A Little Less Conversation" track) but there were two things that ruined this soundtrack for me.
1. Almost all of the tracks contain dialogue voice overs from the movie, even the catchy tracks I was looking for weren't just music, they all contained dialogue to get in the way of the music.
2. Even the Elvis song I wanted to get a copy of was faded out before it was over (something that happens to all of the tracks here) and blended into the next track on the CD.
I guess if my description fits what you're looking for then pick this up. If you are looking for the same thing I was then I might suggest listening to this at the library or someplace else before spending your money on this.

This confusing, contradictory mishmash of musical styles and movie dialog is a disappointment. It strikes me there's some production inside joke or theme going on here, yet we consumers aren't allowed in. Some of the music is quite good, but the album's pace and structure defeats that. Most frustrating is the constant presence of movie dialog, intro'ing songs, concluding songs, smack in the middle. It's unbelievably intrusive, highly annoying, and ruins what would otherwise be a fine soundtrack release.
All tracks segue, which most often does not work well.
This first track sets the dialog tone right away, nine seconds in, with Daniel Ocean's parole hearing sliding right in over Percy Faith's "Theme For Young Lovers." The theme has no chance to even begin to become one, dim and tinny in the background of George Clooney being very, very cool. You'll find the same on Track 4, "The Plans." It's more talk from the boys, with some good jazz relegated to the background. If I wanted movie dialog, I'd play the DVD and capture my favorite bits on my own.
Track 2, "Boobytrapping" moves into what we're looking for, good supporting music from the film, just the music alone. But the last 25 seconds is more intrusive film dialog.
Then we get right on into it, with the ridiculously out of place "The Projects (PJays)" at Track 3. It's a stupid knockoff rap about livin' in da projects. Sure, it was in the film, but it's got nothing to do with the rest of the tracks on this CD, thematically, conceptually, or musically. Why is it even included? The cynic in me reasons that it makes an unadulterated (no movie dialog to be found) appearance here as part of the contract for permission to use the song in the film.

I loved the movie, largely due to the great scoring, and was excited to hear the soundtrack, despite the other (not-so-kind)reviews I read here.
Yes, there is dialogue on the CD, but most tracks do not have movie excerpts, and, on those that do, the dialogue is usually only at the beginning or the end of the track, and is not more than 20 seconds long. At first I didn't like the dialogue, but the more I listen to it, the more I like it.
David Holmes' scoring is incredible; he creates gritty-cool lo-fi funk tracks that are rough yet at the same time incredibly cool. Most are acoustic-based with some electronic touches beautifully added as garnish.
There are also a number of other tunes from other artists -- Elvis, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Perry Como, Arthur Lyman, Quincy Jones, Percy Faith, and a beautiful rendition of "Clair de Lune" by the Philadelphia Orchestra. While I bought the soundtrack to hear David Holmes' scoring, the other tracks added to the experience and tied the soundtrack together and helped recreate the mood of the movie.
I still would have liked a bit more of the original David Holmes compositions, but what's on the disc is great, so I can't complain. It sufficiently recreates the hip slick feel of the movie while still leaving the listener with enough leeway to create his own mood.

Having enjoyed David Holmes' previous work with another Steven Soderbergh film, "Out of Sight," it was only obvious that he score the fail-proof "Ocean's Eleven." David Holmes is a shoo-in when it comes to scoring heist/caper films because his jazzy lo-fi grooves and delicious funk licks compliment the workings of a film of this nature, not too mention that he understands (and supports) Soderbergh's style: Cool, inventive, and never predictable.

Owning both the consumer version of the Soundtrack and the Academy Awards Promotional CD of this score (Given to Academy Members for "their consideration" to nominate the work promoted) it's clear that the Consumer Version available to the public doesn't sacrifice what I believe a soundtrack CD should do, recreate the film's tone and feel through music and audio cues. The dialogue in the CD actually grows on you after a few listens, and as a "keepsake souvenir" of this fine film, you won't be disappointed. But as a score lover or David Holmes fan, you might find screenwriter Ted Griffin's snippets quite distracting.
Now for the score itself (not the Consumer CD which I am rating here). Of course the dialogue is missing (and rightfully so) on the Promotional CD, yet after listening to such cues as "Ruben's In," or "The Plans," you begin to realize that David Holmes' score works on such great levels because it actually compliments the dialogue in the film, which many composers tend to put on the backburner. Not to mention Soderbergh and Holmes work well together because Soderbergh's image-rhythm cuts and compositions fit so coherently with Holmes' jazz and abstract funk styles, styles that are rather risky for scoring films. Holmes seems to favor thick bass lines and off-kilter percussions.
