Traditional Irish instrumentation mixes with classical orchestration on the soundtrack to Waking Ned Devine, and the results are impressive, to say the least. On "Red Herrings," a traditional fiddle-and-whistle lineup gets truly funky, and other tracks brim with the playful innocence of a tiny Irish hamlet. The Waterboys' single "Fisherman's Blues" is, of course, included as well. But the score that Irish composer Shaun Davey has created is magnificent--a delightful mix of old and new with some truly great playing. --James Hendrickson

After watching this movie I knew I had to get the soundtrack. It is a tribute to the cinematographer as well as Shaun Davey. When I listen to the CD, the magnificent Irish landscape comes back alive in my mind every time I play it, which is almost daily. The CD ranges from traditional upbeat Irish folk to more mellow meditative music. Note: this is mostly an acoustic album, but if you liked the music and want to remember the mood you felt when you left the theatre ( If you are a fan of this movie, you know what I mean ) then short of popping the DVD into a large screen surround sound home theatre, this is the next best thing.

You don't have to have seen the movie to appreciate this incredible music -- although if you haven't, it is a personal loss, for the movie itself is a great fable -- a tale of friendship, with twists of irony and dancing (at arm's length) with the devil; it's one of those tiny jewels that oftentimes gets lost in the shuffle of big budget extravaganzas. And unlike so many films where music is inappropriate or overrides the story, Davey's score is a tale in itself -- fresh, vital -- ranging from the lone sounds of ancient rhythms and pipes to combinations that bring the old into the new century. It is the soul of Ireland, one foot in the past, one in the present, with all the beauty and sadness that entails. If you have any feeling for Celtic music, this is an album that will mesmerize -- even haunt you -- and uplift you -- with a rich heritage of sound lurking in incredible thematic variations -- one of those pieces where the music becomes part of your own head and heart. It's a winner.

The best movie soundtrack, period. I have collected quite a few and there are always a few songs that I could do without. Not here. From the beginning to the end, you may not be able to fight the urge to dance a jig or sing out loud. If you loved the movie, there is no question that you can't do without this CD!

If you ask me, the song 'The Parting Glass" is worth the entire album. The first time I saw that there was a soundtrack I knew I had to have it because of that one song. It is the song that really cut an impression into my mind the first time I saw the movie. The rest of the album is great, but that is the song that truely stands out in my memory. Another great song is 'The Lotto Man Cometh'. It is another song that sticks out, but not as far as 'The Parting Glass'. I would highly reccomend this album to anyone who cares to buy it.

The first time I heard "The Parting Glass" was during the conclusion of a documentary about the last game at Tiger Stadium in Detroit. This song played as Al Kaline, the Hall-of-Famer, took one last look around the empty stadium before heading down the tunnel for the last time. The tears flowed and I knew I had to find a copy of this song. I was, therefore, delighted when I watched "Waking Ned Devine" and this was the last song played in the movie. Since buying the CD I have played this one song over and over again. It alone is worth the price of the entire CD. Highly recommended.

This is the first soundtrack that has not disappointed me, even a little. Even Jackie's spoken tribute to his friend Michael at the funeral is there. If you loved the movie you will love the CD. It is the first time I have heard the Waterboys and "Fisherman's Blues". I know, where have I been? I have ordered more of Shaun Davey's music because of this movie and this soundtrack.
Shaun Davey, it is sheer poetry. THANKS

Wow, what a CD! One of my favorites of all time, this is a fantastic bit of Irish music. I agree with all the people below that "The Parting Glass" is worth the whole thing. What a song! It will bring tears to your eyes because of its perfect beauty and simplicity. However,just because they have one heavenly song doesn't mean that the others are any less wonderful. The Fisherman's Blues, performed by Mike Scott and the Waterboys, is a rolicking bit of Irish rock. The Lotto Man Cometh contains a beautifully haunting whistle descant, and Michael's Ride will make you get up and dance very single time you hear it. An Angel Will Cry is a gorgeous duet between a bagpipe and a violin. These are just a few of the 15 fantastic songs on the album! If any reader out there is curious about the music being too much of a backround soundtrack, I can honestly say that only one comes even close to being so. Each one stands alone.

I finally have a CD player in my car. Guess which CD was first to sound its tune while I was driving? 'Waking Ned Devine' is relaxing . . . haunting . . . optimistic . . . bringing smile to my face. The CD samples folk music, Irish Rock, Blues, windpipe as well Celtic meditative acoustic tunes. The funny as well as touching themes are invigorating. By the way, do yourself a favor. See the movie too.
