The action-adventure mystery "Sherlock Holmes" is helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie. Robert Downey Jr. brings the legendary detective to life, and Jude Law stars as Holmes' trusted colleague, Watson, a doctor and war veteran who is a formidable ally. The soundtrack to "Sherlock Holmes" features music by Academy Award, Golden Globe Award and Grammy Award winning composer Hans Zimmer. Enhanced CD includes free digital download of the Soundtrack in 5.1 Surround Sound.

I love the movie and the soundtrack is one that I listen to.

Hans Zimmer has crafted a great score for the film, Sherlock Holmes.

If I had a theme music playing in the background, this would be it.

The soundtrack for this movie was spectacular and this is a good CD, but it's missing some of the music that was in the film. Mostly noticeably absent was the the great Irish music vocal, "The Rocky Road to Dublin," by The High Kings. This song made the Holmes fight scene even more dramatic, and it also made the credits at the end more enjoyable. I was disappointed to find that it wasn't included in the soundtrack CD.

This version of Sherlock Holmes is apparently the 223rd occasion the ubiquitous detective has been portrayed on either the big or small screen, but as far as I'm aware this is the first time Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary character has been a traditional Hollywood action hero. A succession of actors - from Basil Rathbone to Peter Cushing and Jeremy Brett - have portrayed Holmes as a thoughtful, cultured, albeit rather eccentric English gentleman, and although Doyle's novels have often spoken of his prowess as a bare knuckle fighter and swordsman, as well as his drug use, Holmes was never an `action man' in the traditional sense. It seems the filmmakers have made a rather unfortunate misjudgment of character on this film, making this Holmes a young, bare-chested hunk rather than an analytical mind.

The film is directed by Guy Ritchie, the former husband of Madonna and the director of such popular hits as Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, and stars Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and Jude Law as Holmes' faithful assistant and confidante, Watson. The plot revolves around the dastardly Lord Blackwood (Mark Strong), an occult-worshipping aristocrat who, following a series of brutal murders, is captured, tried and subsequently executed, but seemingly rises from the dead to continue his reign of terror. The film also stars Rachel McAdams as Holmes's American paramour Irene Adler, Eddie Marsan as Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard, and Geraldine James, Kelly Reilly, Hans Matheson, James Fox and William Hope in smaller roles. For the film's music, Ritchie turned to composer Hans Zimmer, who began his career in London with the late great Stanley Myers, and as such has an affinity for the city and its cultural heritage.

Have not loved a Zimmer score this much since "Da Vinci Code".

Just when you think you have Zimmer figured out and expect him to churn out his usual style of music he knocks you out with this fun and very strange score that features an amazing mix of synths and an unusual orchestra. According this interview I read they had the piano I think right side up or something like that on one of the cues. And I could have sworn I heard an alto flute on one of the tracks. Woodwinds in a Zimmer score? What's the world coming to.

The album starts with the engaging and highly entertaining "Discombobulate" which is just blast to listen to. When the track started I was ready to yawn but then the trombones kicked in and the fun started. The track sets up what I imagine is the movie's theme, which is done with a banjo if I'm hearing right then joined by the rest of the very odd orchestra. Zimmer even throws in a solo violin towards the end and what I could have sworn was an accordion. This track alone is worth the purchase of the album, so much fun and craziness. And all this time I thought Zimmer was humorless.

The humor doesn't stop with the first track, the 3rd track "I Never Woke Up in Handcuffs Before" is a crazy, crazy piece of music that sounds like something you'd hear an Indian bar. Zimmer pretty much has the unorthodox orchestra attempting to play the main theme and doing a very poor job of it. Sounds like a middle school band rehearsing for the main theme, which just makes it hilarious. Not sure if this was an aleatoric performance or actually written, but it's funny as all hell. Once again shocked that Zimmer has a sense of humor.

But it's not all fun and games as there are some tender moments here and there which also works fine without feeling out of place.

The High Kings version of "The Rocky Road to Dublin" is a good version, but if you want the one form the movie you should buy "The Rocky Road to Dublin" form the Dubliners since that is the one form the movie.

One of my pet peeves are soundtrack's where the order of songs is not in the chronological order as they appeared in the movie. I usually come to amazon and find that someone has already posted a review and put songs in the proper order, but it looks like no one has done that thus far with this soundtrack.

The format I'll use for this is:

Proper Order # / Soundtrack Track # / Track Title / Appearance Time in Movie (H:MM:SS) / Comment (if any):
1 / 7 / Marital Sabotage / 0:28 / intro of movie as horses appear
2 / 9 / Ah, Putrefaction / ~14:00 / Partial Track used - played during 2nd half of dinner while Holme's tries observe details of Mary and fails miserably
3 / X / The Rocky Road to Dublin (Live) / 15:34 / By the Dubliners: Not part of soundtrack - I bought this track separately and added it to my playlist.
4 / 4 / My Mind Rebels at Stagnation / / Multiple Ques: Ride to Prison to speak to Blackwood, and Most prominent;y is @ 3:00 into the track, which is Blackwood's first (staged) execution
5 / 5 / Data, Data, Data / 28:00 / Irene Adler Theme - Played during multiple sections of the movie (crushing walnuts with her fist, and drugging Holmes at the Grand Hotel)
6 / 2 / Is It Poison, Nanny? / ~31:15 / Multiple Ques: @ 1:30 into track, it's the second half of Irene's Introduction conversation, and as she walks (non flashback) to meet with Moriarty
7 / 3 / I Never Woke Up in Handcuffs Before / 34:19 / Appears in multiple ques - flashback of following Irene, and during first fight with Dredger at Reardon's home.
