Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

By turns bold, sentimental, and decidedly loopy, director Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love has perceptively been described as a classic MGM musical without the songs. Which isn't to say it lacks for music; Jon Brion's glorious, stylistically baroque score matches Anderson's cinematic verve at every turn. Brion variously revives vintage Hawaiian pop-kitsch and Conway Twitty at his early Elvis-clone angstiest, and perfectly recasts Shelly Duvall's determined/desperate reading of "He Really Needs Me" from Harry Nilsson's underappreciated Popeye score as one of his major romantic themes; codependents need love, too. But the major touchstone for Brion's instrumental underscore is the elusive Reprise Records sound of the late '60s/early '70s, with arrangements that seem lingering homages to Brian Wilson's Smile, Van Dyke Parks's Song Cycle, and Randy Newman's Sail Away. The composer's own self-performed pop-waltz of a melancholy love song, "Here We Go," echoes nothing less than the Beatles in their Rubber Soul/Revolver prime; it was even recorded in their old Abbey Road studio and seems to coax musical ghosts from the very walls. It's no mean feat to be both smart and sentimental, but Brion's pulled it off handsomely here on this, the best soundtrack these ears savored in 2002. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars ...So Here We Go July 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Strange... Cartoon-sounding... Eerie... Beautiful...
Those are the words that come to mind when I listen to the score to one of my new favorite films, "Punch-Drunk Love." Composed by Jon Brion, this beautifully haunting score gets in your head and stays there (just like the movie). You pretty much feel a party of emotions when you pop this baby in.
While it can be very melodic and soothing at times, it can also get tense and rapid. A lot of the tunes on the score appear to be influenced by the song "he needs me," which was originally from the "Popeye" movie and was performed by Shelly Duvall. (The original song appears on the soundtrack as well). And you really get the feeling that you're watching some sort of cartoon when you play the CD. How strange I'd like something like this, but that's thanks to loving the movie so much.
My favorite tracks are "overture," "tabla," "punch-drunk melody," "he needs me," "hands & feet," "blossoms & blood," "here we go," "le petit chateau," hospital," and "third floor hallway." That's the majority of the album, but those are the songs I listen to the most. I really love Jon Brion's "here we go;" the lyrics really seem to hit home with me. All 17 tracks are a complete joy to listen to.
If you're a big fan of the film and you love a good film score, put "Punch-Drunk Love" on your list. This is a score that I can never get tired of. I'm glad that I have it in my CD collection and it is a frequent visitor in my stereo, I must admit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great PT Anderson/Jon Brion Collaboration May 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is another great collaboration between director Paul Thomas Anderson and musician Jon Brion. First, this is a great movie, and then an equally great soundtrack/score by Jon Brion, with the film and soundtrack working perfectly together. The disc is mostly instrumental songs, but also includes the songs "He Needs Me" "Waikiki" & "Danny (Lonely Boy Blue)" which are prominent in the film. This score is great on its own, which makes me recommend it more than the "Magnolia" score (again by the PT/Brion duo). These two are really able to team up and make the music perfectly complement the film.
Also, if you like this soundtrack, especially "Here We Go", go find Jon Brion's album "meaningless"

5.0 out of 5 stars best film soundtrack of the year January 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
captures the essence of the film perfectly...you get the Shelley Duvall song and Waikiki and much more.
It comes enhanced with film footage playing Jon Brion's Here We Go. This song is as much important to this film as Aimee Mann's Save Me was for Magnolia.
Unfortunately, I didn't hear it in the film. But I really love this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punch Drunk Pepperland November 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jon Brion is an excellent arranger, who has produced albums with Aimee Mann, Fiona Apple, the Eels and Rufus Wainright (among others). For the soundtrack to PUNCH DRUNK LOVE, Brion plunges into Davy Jones' Locker for an orchestral rediscovery of the Beatles' YELLOW SUBMARINE soundtrack album, side-two (composed and arranged by George Martin). The overture to Brion's PUNCH DRUNK LOVE soundtrack, in its waltz time, feels like it was plucked right from the brilliant second half of Martin's "Sea of Time." This soundtrack shifts back and forth between delectible orchestral pop, experimental instrumentals, incongruous vocal tracks and sweeping soundtrack melodies. These days, fans of George Martin's side of the YELLOW SUBMARINE album are few and far between. But for those of us out there, consider this a follow-up... cut from the same cloth... and not one to miss. File Under -- Pop Psychedelia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punch Drunk He Needs Me January 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this movie but admit I purchased the soundtrack on the basis of the quirky ballad "He Needs Me" by Shelley Duvall, love that song! Luckily the entire soundtrack is just delightful, and "Punch Drunk Melody" will be enjoyed by any fans of the music from D'Armacord and the Bellini films. Superbly gorgeous soundtrack, a great for collectors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance at its finest April 25, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Every time I listen to this CD, it takes me back to those moments in the movie that I love the best. There are so many little changes in score that make the whole mood shift. It is light and delicate, like the story itself. A definite must buy.
