Most motion picture scores, unfortunately, are bland when removed from the visual stimuli of the movie images. Not so for this magnificent Howard Shore penned masterpiece. Like the movie for which it was written, the score is spellbinding and provocative. Each individual piece is complete unto itself, never failing to deliver its unique impact. The score in its entirety takes the listener on a fantastic and passionate journey emotionally and aurally. What sets this artistic work apart from countless others is the unique styling offered by Howard Shore and the stellar guitar playing by Grammy winning classical guitarist Sharon Isbin. Her subtleties on "Billy's Theme" evoke the anguish and deep emotional conflict that Leonardo DiCaprio portrays onscreen. Such a powerful performance is rare on any recording, unheard of on a soundtrack or score. G.E Smith's slightly processed electric guitar adds yet another dimension. I generally do not buy "movie" music, but this is a CD that I do own. It is a fabulous recording and worthy of critical listening.

It's beautiful - not much more I can say - Howard Shore wrote a wonderful score - sorry about the rhyme!

I don't understand why I was not warned that when I bought the new soundtrack from the movie The Departed that I would only be getting 14 songs out of 36 songs more then 1/2 the songs were missing. I love what I got . I give the CD 4 stars. But what drew me to wanting the soundtrack was the balance between the soft sounds of classical guitar and the hard sound of Irish and Boston Rock.
I was expecting this but it cut out all the Hard sound and left all of the soft sound. So now to balance it out I'm going to have to pay $0.99 x 14 downloading MP3's to complete the sound track.
And that kind of sucks.

Comparable to the case of the Goodfellas soundtrack, this is missing quite a bit of material. Why is it so hard to make a thorough compilation that has few, or no, omissions? I don't get it. I won't buy this based on the fact that it has absolutely none of the NYPD Emerald Society Pipes and Drums compositions on either of the two disks released. If this is the score, then where are the scores? Not putting the "Theme from Symphony No. 5 in E Minor" Dvorak (performed by NYPD E.S.P.&D) is simply inexcusable. That was a very poignant moment in the movie, the funeral scene at the end, and is near impossible to find. Anyone know where to find this?

By Tyler T. Kutz on May 13, 2008

I am an avid soundtrack listener and a huge fan of Howard Shore. His Lord of the Rings scores are among the first soundtracks I owned. After being a rather disappointed by "History of Violence", I wasn't expecting much from this. Boy was I wrong.

Shore proves himself as a master composer. For this score he worked almost strictly with guitars. There is some percussion, and also what I think is synthetic string (but you use a guitar for that too I think...if anybody knows for sure please correct me in a comment). What amazed me was that despite the "limitations" of using only guitars, Shore achieved a richness and depth that many composers can't get using an entire orchestra! Apparently Shore doesn't have to be commanding the London Philharmonic to produce exceptional music.

Billy's Theme and The Departed Tango are my favorites. I also recommend "I'm Shipping Up To Boston", the song by Dropkick Murphys that also is used in the film.
