Editorial Reviews

Product Description

CD No Back Inlay

Amazon.com

While not as much of a commercial success as Quentin Tarantino's later film Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs is today regarded as a classic, although happily one that doesn't take itself too seriously. With its out-of-sequence narrative involving a diamond heist, its desperate characters expressing opinions on music and cinema, and the constant radio play (all the film's music is from source cues), Dogs remains shocking and exhilarating. Even stronger on the CD is the implication that the story is somehow being told by Steven Wright's deadpan '70s disc jockey. Tracks include "Little Green Bag" by the George Baker Selection, "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede, "I Gotcha" by Joe Tex, "Coconut" by Harry Nilsson, and the one that will always remind viewers of the movie's grisliest scene, "Stuck in the Middle with You" by Stealers Wheel. --Stanley Booth

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously funny January 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I did feel a bit gypped when I paid the regular price for this half-hour CD, but for anyone who saw the movie and even moderately enjoyed it, it's a must-buy. With the dialogue included, it can even function as a kind of poor man's DVD.

One star for Little Green Bag. I never realized how good this song was until I heard it in full.

One star for Blue Swede's Hooked on a Feeling, which, although it only plays for a second in the movie, is a great song.

One star for the way Steve Wright pronounces 'Bohemiath.' It's worth buying it just for this. I'm serious.

One star for the Madonna Speech, and Lawrence Tierney muttering: "Chu...Toby Chu?"

One star for the way Steve Wright says: "...and Edison Lighthouse's...Love Grows...Where My Rosemary Goes."

The Coconut song and Stuck in the Middle With You are also great. The only thing I missed was any part of the dialogue which begins with Steve Buscemi saying: "How come _I_ gotta be Mister Pink?"

4.0 out of 5 stars A funky, good mix October 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Same goes for Reservoir Dogs as with Pulp Fiction--if you liked the movie, chances are, you'll enjoy the soundtrack. There are a few dialogue choices I would have added from the movie (such as why Mr. Pink doesn't tip, and why he has to be Mr. Pink anyway) that would have made it even better, but the Madonna speech and "Let's Get a Taco" added some sick humor to the mix. I, for one, will never be able to listen to "Like a Virgin" without thinking of Mr. Brown's interpretation of its meaning...
It's an eclectic mix on this soundtrack, but that seems to be the norm for a Tarantino film. From honky-tonk country ("Fool for Love"), to funk ("I Gotcha"), to just some fun-loving '70s ("Stuck in the Middle With You"), the songs on here wouldn't normally be ones you'd find together on an album, but seem to work well here, as they did in the movie. Most songs on the album were in pivotal parts of the movie as well.
It might not be a soundtrack I'd buy if I hadn't seen the movie, but this one compliments its film very well. Steven Wright's monotone DJ excerpts make a good lead in to some of the songs, but more film dialogue would have been preferable. A recommended buy for those who enjoyed the film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Songs for a Fun Movie April 27, 2002
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I love the seventies songs on this CD. The mix is great, and I love remembering how they fit so well with the movie. Such a great movie. The opening song, "Little Green Bag" is probably my favorite for the great beat and groovy tune. Thanks to that adiquate torture seen, I don't think I'll EVER forget "Stuck in the Middle with You." The "Coconut" song is a little weird, but nice. The rest were pretty good too. The dialogues were the best possible moments they could have picked. The Madonna speech had me laughing in fits.
A lot of people complain that the CD is too short. It is. Really. But that still doesn't detract from the quality. I can't stop loving this CD, thus the five stars I feel it deserves. Short, but very sweet.

4.0 out of 5 stars clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right December 13, 2005
By Mz. M
Format:Audio CD
If there's one thing I must give Quentin Tarantino high marks for is putting together some amazing soundtracks that both make for great listening and complement the film. After I'd first seen "Reservoir Dogs" (far later than every other decent movie-loving person on the planet), it struck me as being a good film with the potential to be truly great after several more viewings. I already knew it was going to become one of my top favorite movies of all time. But what gave it that special kick -- besides the simple but tight plot, the incredible actors, and the love of my life Steve Buscemi (did I just type that out loud...?) -- was the music. And even before I learned to fully appreciate the movie, I wanted -- no, *needed* -- the soundtrack. The songs weren't extraneous or inappropriate, but they effectively punctuated, underlined, and italicized certain scenes and made them even more memorable and meaningful than they would've been without the aural enhancements. As opposed to just random musical sounds laid over a scene, they actually fit in and occasionally lent some commentary if you think about it.

I can listen to this soundtrack over and over (much like the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack) and it's almost like reliving another layer of the movie. It also has the eclecticism of a free-form radio show, thanks to Steven Wright's "DJ"-ing. Okay, so this CD short. Okay, so some of the songs have been played to death already (did anybody catch the stupid Coke commercials that totally ruined the "Coconut" song? Feh...). It still works as a whole, film dialogue and DJ bits included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Cool November 28, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Reservoir Dogs" is one of the most creative and stylish movies ever put to screen. Quentin Tarantino's crime film features "Super Sounds of the Seventies" music which appears on the fantastic soundtrack album along with Steven Wright's narration of the songs. Also included is Harvey Kietel's classic monologue about how to rob a jewelry store. Let's also not forget "Stuck in the Middle With You" which I'll never be able to listen to the same way again after seeing the movie. It's the ultimate souvenier from this classic crime caper. This album is not to be missed by anyone who liked the movie. If you didn't see the movie yet get offline right now and go rent it and then buy the soundtrack. You'll thank me for it.
