Product Description

The dark underworld of 'Sin City' has been captured in music by Rodriguez himself, along with composers John Debney (The Passion of the Christ, The Replacements) and Graeme Revell (The Crow, Pitch Black). Varese. 2005.

Amazon.com

Set in dark, slickened streets and populated by a stellar ensemble cast, this adaptation of Frank Miller's hard-edged, film noir inspired graphic novels plays like comic-book-come-to-life—not surprising, as Miller is credited as Robert Rodriguez's co-director (with a bit of help from Quentin Tarantino). The soundtrack to this bleak, compelling exercise in pure noir stylism is provided mostly by director Rodriguez, with an occasional assist from past collaborators John Debney (Spy Kids and its sequel) and Graeme Revell (From Dusk Til Dawn). While their largely synth-driven cues tend naturally towards brooding atmospheric soundscapes, their tense electro-rhythms are seasoned with bracing doses of sinewy, sensual sax and dotted with the occasional bongo flourish, details that musically evoke both a shadowy humanity and the film's genre-savvy roots. Also featuring disparate, yet wholly integrated contributions from techno-house savants Fluke (the hypnotic "Absurd") and 20th century Mexican classicist Silvestre Revueltas, it's the sinister flipside to the future-jazz sheen of Vangelis' classic Blade Runner.--Jerry McCulley

The music for "Sin City" had grabbed attention as soon as the trailer first showed. The instrumental version of The Servant's "Cells" made the film all the more appealing; it also made the song a favorite among music downloaders. No one, myself included, even put a thought into what kind of music the actual movie might have. I guess we figured it was going to be your traditional soundtrack.

No way, Jose. "Sin City" is anything but your traditional soundtrack. The first third of the soundtrack features music by Graeme Revell; John Debney owns the second third; riter/director/editor/cinematographer Robert Rodriguez contributes the final third of the soundtrack.

The soundtrack begins with the "Sin City" theme, written by Robert Rodriguez. It's a cool, slick song enhanced by the quiet percussion and hoarse sax. Robert Rodriguez has the next song as well, "One Hour to Go", before Graeme Revell takes over. Revell's score, which covers Marv's tale (played in the film by Mickey Rourke), is my personal favorite. It's jazzy, strong, and it fits Marv like the jackets that the character loves so much to wear. The most refreshing thing about Revell's music is his wide range of instruments. "Marv" is possibly the best of the Revell-composed music - it's slick, heavy, strong, blasting, a very cool piece. Some people may remember this from the trailer.

Next up in the film is Dwight's (Clive Owen) tale, scored by John Debney. Debney's music is more old-fashioned, vaguely reminescent of the Bogart-era of film noir scores. While Debney's music still includes the screeching sax, he goes much more for a light, fast-paced jazz soundtrack. A perfect example of this is "Jackie Boy's Head".

The final third of the soundtrack is music by Robert Rodriguez.

Now, i loved the movie, but the soundtrack blew me away! all the songs fit the movie perfectly. However, it is missing the instrumental version of "Cells" by the Servants, which plays on the DVD title menu

so, here you go:

Instrumental Version!

Trailer music is almost NEVER on soundtracks. If you bought it ASSUMING it was on there without even looking or anything (it's common knowledge these days that the song is an instrumental version of "Cells" by The Servant...currently they say they are NOT going to even release an instrumental version commercially).

If you bought a CD expecting a song to be on it without bothering to look, please don't rate the CD poorly just because of your error.

PS: just because a song is in a trailer for a movie does not make it the "main song" of the movie. It's unlikely it will even appear in the movie. Trailers are totally different beasts.

PPS: YES! this does mean that the instrumental version of "Cells" by The Servant, as heard in the Sin City trailers is NOT ON THIS DISC.

This was not an "omission" because this is the SCORE anyway, and NOT the soundtrack. Current comments from the Servant also indicate that it will not be on the soundtrack either--IF there is one.

ANYWAY...the music here is pretty good, pseudo-jazzy. It'd've been nice to include some old school "western"/country like the bars in Sin City have (here's hoping they have it in the film as well)...but again, that'd be better located on a soundtrack anyway.

To clear up the confusion about what is and what is not included on the soundtrack...

There are three trailers for the movie - the original teaser which opens with the full Josh Hartnett scene (and includes swearing and nudity later on), and two regular trailers. The music used in the teaser is music from the movie (in fact it's the first track on the CD). The music used in the second two trailers is the song by The Servants.

While it's a good song, I don't think it fits the mood of the movie as well as the actual score.

This soundtrack is fantastic. Rodriguez should continue scoring his own movies (with help, of course).

An impressive soundtrack that's faithful to its movie! The music by Rodriguez, John Debney, and Graeme Revell, is impressive.
