This is a wonderfully atmospheric score; Gavin Friday and Maurice Seezer are possibly the most underrated thing in music. If you can find their three albums (EACH MAN KILLS THE THING HE LOVES, ADAM 'N' EVE, and SHAG TOBACCO), do so. But where each of those albums had at least one tour-de-force piece of music to rally around, THE BOXER lacks one -- just as is mentioned above. "In The Shadow Of A Gun" is powerful, but sounds just like every other intense movie theme song, and "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" is almost obnoxiously uninvolving. The instrumentals are varied and fascinating, but almost all end before their chance at greatness. A beautiful but frustrating soundtrack.

We've come to expect dramatic film scores to have an Oscar-nominated love theme. So, when we don't get one, it feels like the score fell short of its potential. Still, the depth of mood and funkiness of the beats keep this album from being mediocre. Friday and Seezer take some liberties with the score, and I wish they'd left in some of the briefer cues (such as Danny's reunion with Ike). Of course, I'm being a stickler because "The Boxer" is one of my all-time favorite films.
The inclusion of film dialogue is a definite plus, and most effective in track nine ("Peace"). It isn't done as well in "You Broke My Heart"; they should've used Maggie's full soliloquy. It's almost like the "Moulin Rouge" soundtracks - the music worked as is onscreen, so let it be. I'm just glad they didn't resort to the loathsome techno-remix ploy that pops up on some soundtracks.
This score strikes a good balance between orchestral melancholy and urban trip-funk. Sometimes, the two styles merge ("Everything's Gonna Be Alright," "In The Shadow of A Gun"). The purely orchestral pieces have an Anne Dudley appeal.
It's pretty hard to get your mitts on this disc. If you enjoy Baz Luhrman's scores and/or Gavin Friday's solo work, the "Boxer" soundtrack is worth the hunt.

I really loved Daniel Day-Lewis in this movie. I usually am not crazy about those kinds of movies, but I gave it a try since I love to see Daniel Day-Lewis on screen. My daughter, however, likes DDL but couldn't get into this movie.
