For all of those people self-righteously criticizing the soundtrack of this movie as being a lift off of Peter Gabriel's work, perhaps you should do some more research before making such an uneducated critique. Peter Gabriel, too, took the music for the Last Temptation from a significantly more historic source. The instruments used on both soundtracks is the duduk, a classic instrument used in Armenian music, which dates back to biblical times. Hence the choice to use it in both this film and Peter Gabriel's Last Temptation Soundtrack. Gabriel was in no way the creator or innovator of that sound, those melodies, nor the mood set by them. Armenian musicians have been mastering the duduk for over a thousand years. This soundtrack was inspired by them, and paid homage to them, much in the same way Gabriel has done for many years. But Gabriel doesn't have the sole ownership on being inspired by international and ancient music. This soundtrack was powerful and moving, due in part to the appropriate choice of instruments and musicians. People should try to appreciate the music for what it is, and not where you THINK it came from.

John Debney's intense, melodic score adds much atmosphere to Mel Gibson's magnificent film, but can also stand on its own as intriguing and lovely listening. It uses a lot of background vocals and chanting to great effect, and fascinating instruments that give it a middle-eastern flavor; notable is the duduk, which is an ancient double-reed similar to the clarinet, often used in Armenian folk traditions.
It is a score that changes from gentle tenderness to percussive strength, always interesting in its many moods. A few tracks have lush string arrangements, and track # 9, "Mary Goes to Jesus" takes flight on wings of sound.
Other contributors to the score are Jack Lenz, Shankar & Gingger, with lyrics by Lisbeth Scott. The sound quality is terrific and total playing time is 54'09.
It is all at once inspiring, peaceful, and energizing music, and a score that I will be listening to many years from now.
See the film, and hear the music; this is the rare stuff that changes lives with its beauty, power, and truth.

I had access to this soundtrack prior to viewing the movie. It is moving, riveting, and soulful. I can almost envision the elements that each title represents. My husband has listened to it nonstop while at work for the past 2 days and has come home with a totally different attitude.
I highly recommend this especially as background music to listen to while meditating on Sacred Scripture. (Not too loud, just softly in the background.)

First off, I'd like to say it's sad that people are actually putting down fake (obviously fake. no, not because they gave it a low rating) reviews for this soundtrack. That is very petty. Just because you're offended by the movie (and it baffles me to no end why so many people are offended by this movie. L E M M I N G S.) doesn't mean you should stoop to writing fake reviews. If you have to lie to help your cause, maybe your cause sucks.
Basically if you liked the Gladiator and The Seige (particularly the opening song Skeikh's Abduction) soundtracks, you'll like this. It's like a combination of the two but more so if that makes any sense. This is something you'll want to listen to on a good stereo to fully appreciate. Whether you like the movie or not or are even intending on seeing the movie or not, this is a very good score.

Simply put, this is the best score I've ever listened to. And this isn't some yahoo saying that - I own over 400 movies scores which range from 1940 to 2006; and this is the cream of the crop. It contains some of the most moving, heart breaking, powerful, uplifting, tragic music I've ever heard. To say there aren't enough good words I can use about this CD is putting it mildly.

The score grabs your attention at track 2, and never lets go. Speaking of Bearing the Cross track, is there many more moving pieces of music you've heard in your lifetime? I sure can't say so. From there on, the music gets even better. Debney uses a wide array of ethnic instruments and his own brand of powerhouse percussion and aching strings to produce a listening experience like none other.

Then there's Mary Goes to Jesus, followed with The Crucifixtion. Unbelievable. Rarely am I almost moved to tears by music alone, but with these two tracks, I was. Then, eventually, we wind up at Resurrection, which is my favourite piece of music in the history of time. It's impossible to describe the power, the beauty, the undeniable spirit of this track alone. I remember my mouth being agape the first time I heard it.

Simply put - buy this score. There's a reason it's one of the most successful soundtracks of all time. Wether you're religious or a fan of scores or the exact opposite of both, I gaurentee this music will touch you in a way few others do. Absolutely perfect.

cheers

I love this music. It's a personal experience that brings what you're envisioning at home all alone or seeing on a screen in a theater right into your heart and soul. It makes the situation inescapable. You can't ignore that they are nailing the Man to a cross....He is dying for you and you can't stop it and He won't....He loves us enough not to. Can we wrap our minds around the idea of a love that deep in this world as we know it? I don't believe so. It's pain, it's hope, it's love, it's suffering, it's violent and it's peaceful........but most of all, it's perfect. Just like Him. This music brings those thoughts and feelings back to life inside me every time I listen to it. It fills me up when I'm empty and picks me up when I feel like I can't go any further.
