5.0 out of 5 stars Very atmospheric, very evocative, very nocturnal November 5, 2005
By Tivor
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I watched the movie Stay, I knew I had to buy the soundtrack CD. I didn't realize how much I was going to like it.

The movie Stay has a very dream-like quality, and the soundtrack does a masterful job underscoring it. Most of the songs are very laid back, awash with pad sounds with subtly effected solo instruments, like guitar, piano or cello. The overall production value of sound design is very high. The pad sounds in particular are really nifty, sounding like strings or choirs, yet not exactly, but at the same time, not sounding synthy or electronic either. While some of the sounds are obviously electronic, you never feel like you're listening to an electronic music. The 16-member (!!!) music team Asche & Spencer did a great job keeping the sound very organic. Also, whole CD has a subtle reverb-y resonant quality that makes you feel like you are standing at the end of a long tunnel, which fits the movie perfectly well.

And when it all comes together in the end credit music "I'm never gonna sleep tonight," it's truly beautiful. Piano, guitar, cello, strings, organ, and then choir.... Great buildup.

The motif is rather simple, but with masterful arrangement and sound design, this works to its advantage in creating a very atmospheric, very evocative, very hauntingly nocturnal soundtrack.

I'll be listening to this one a lot. Especially when I'm driving at night.

4.0 out of 5 stars The song that comes and goes in Stay... June 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD

the name os this song is These Eyes, written by Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman. The one we hear three or four times during the movie is performed by The Guess Who.

Other nice songs from this soundtrack are:

- Angel from Massive Attack

- Cold Water from Damien Rice

- Aleph 2 from Photek

- Something's Got To Change from Holly Marilyn

- Who Am I from Peace Orchestra

Hope to helped you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surreal music from a surreal movie January 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Good album full of ambient, dream-like tunes that fit well with the mood of the film.

For those wondering: the song that plays during the strip-club scene is called "Angel" from the album "Mezzanine" by Massive Attack. I highly recomend this one as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Heavenly August 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From the "slim" reviews written and "little" promotion I heard about the movie "Stay", I had an interesting feeling. The notion I had was this, if a movie, nowadays, doesn't get a great deal of promotion or advertising, then it is probably a great movie (and has a great soundtrack). For some reasons, at least recently, a lot of lousy movies are promoted. One can figure out the entire film while watching a 20-second ad for it during a commercial break. My conclusion is because many people want to watch the same movie over and over, just with different actors/actresses and in different places. "Stay" is so philosophical and psychological, that it could turn off many people who just want to enjoy a movie and not think. Which is fine, I guess. Nevertheless the fact remains; "Stay" was promoted as a thriller/horror film. This was a big mistake, because it isn't really a horror or thriller. There are couple spooky parts, but over all the film is surreal, fantasy, mystical and/or dreamlike. "Stay" is a great movie and worth seeing, but the soundtrack can be enjoyed with or without seeing the film.

As for the soundtrack, it paints a beautiful background and framework for this movie. It is haunting, soft, abrasive and obscure. There is definitely an ambient quality about the cacophonies behind this dream child. Asche & Spencer did a beautiful job painting images of ghouls at midnight and lovers longing to be reunited, all at the same time. If I had to compare the type of music, it would fall somewhere near Brian Eno, Cliff Martinez and even some selected Depeche Mode instrumentals. My initial exposure to this soundtrack was before I saw the movie. As formerly noted, the movie wasn't in the theater very long. Therefore, I waited until it was released on home video.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovative and Insightful Experience August 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music to this unique and touching film had to go beyond the normal background soundtrack. It certainly delivered. When I saw the film, it was the music that enraptured me. Ethereal, sublime, and poignant, it grabs your very heart. It feels as if its a meditation on quiet, pensive, and disturbing human emotions. Absolutely breath-taking. Pure genius and recording innovation!

One of the best features about the movie was the soundtrack and as soon as I watched the movie, I knew I had to buy the soundtrack! So eerie, sad, and calming and beautiful! Definitely one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard!
