I really, really liked Aki Kaurismaki's film The Man Without A Past, but I hadn't really thought about it for a while since I saw it. Then it so happened that I heard some of the songs on this here album the other day, and suddenly all my impressions instantly came back. This is a good collection of music that goes between soulful rock and more traditional music, with a couple of groovy Japanese surf songs for good measure. Obscure old-time rock outfit The Renegades finally gets its moment in the sun after forty years, and there's a fine blues standard here from Blind Lemon Jefferson, as well as a dignified Finnish romance that reminds me of certain Russian songs from the early twentieth century. But the show is stolen by the Finnish band Poutahaukat, who actually appear in the film as the Salvation Army band. There are no less than four of their songs here (though one replaces the usual vocalist Marko Haavisto with Anniki Tahti, an aging Finnish singer with, apparently, a long and glorious pop career in her homeland - she plays the Salvation Army manager in the film), and they're all good. I don't know a word of Finnish, but I can say that Haavisto is a very expressive singer. Seriously, listen to "Paha Vaanii." It's not loud, and yet it's energetic and impassioned, with a gentle sort of power. Truly, the spirit of rock transcends the barriers of language. "Stay" is another favourite of mine; stylistically, it sounds a _lot_ like something off the 1993 album Laid by the British band James, except with different vocals.
Finland is a fine place. It is the home of good film makers and actors, Nokia cellular phones, good hockey players, the sauna (pronounced "SOW-nuh"), and apparently at least one rockin' band. I resolve to go there someday. Thank you.

I liked the movie and the soundtrack follows what was on the movie. What I liked about the soundtrack is it had different songs from Finland that I have not found available in the States. Most Finnish music for sale is either traditional or newage but theres nothing that spans the median. For those who crave the music of foriegn lands &/or like the 50's era style music you'll likely like this cd. I would advise listening to the samples to make sure. Hope you enjoy and happy listening!

This is an interesting CD with an early sixties surfing vibe, combined with a little classical and some other odd stuff thrown in. The Finnish band Poutahaukat is terrific-and the other artists were interesting too.

Marko Haavisto sounds like a cross between Elvis and Chris Isaak,with a little twist of his own. Hopefully, we'll hear more from him. I bought the CD after just hearing part of "Stay", and I'm glad I did.

Aki Kaurismaki obviously worked very hard to create an eclectic and appropriate soundtrack that created the proper mood for the film. He has a very keen ear for music.
On this album, you'll find Japanese lounge music (Motto Wasabi by Maso Onose), Finnish folk music (Paha Vaanii by Marko Haavisto and Poutahaukat, Bandoneon by Antero Jakoila and Lukki by Tapio Raufavaara) and a smattering of folksy pop-like tunes with the exception of track five. Half of the album is in Finnish and the rest is instrumental with a smattering of English language songs.
To be honest, the album really isn't good for numerous repeat listens, as intriguing as it may be for the first few times. The music is obviously best when framed within the context of the film and not isolated as a CD soundtrack.
