The first volume of this soundtrack was definitely one of my favorite purchases of a CD, ever.
S.R.W. Phillips
The soundtrack was wonderful and I highly suggest if you like classical and vocal music, that you should buy this CD.
Carl Hart
I get chills and start to shake just listening to it, and rarely does any kind of music do that to me.

One of the most important parts of "Romeo + Juliet" was the soundtrack, and I'm not talking about the pop soundtrack (songs mostly found on Vol. 1). I was ecstatic when this volume was released, because it had the music I REALLY wanted to hear on it: the Wagnerian "O Verona" has such audio impact and sets such a tone for the movie, and the "Young Hearts Run Free (Ballroom Version) is a great techno song performed by Kym Mazelle.
The real gold on this album, however is in Quindon Tarver's choral-pop performance of Prince's "When the Doves Cry" -- wow, what a voice, and what a great arrangement! Another bonus, the instrumental track from Des'ree's "Kissing You" is absolutely beautiful with its longing piano and the achingly scored strings. (When I first heard it, I wanted to play it at my wedding. Now I just settle for singing to it karaoke-style everytime I hear it).
In total, this volume really is more of a treasure than Volume One from "Romeo + Juliet" (who can stand to hear "Lovefool" one more time??) It has great instrumentals, and creates the real feeling of the movie.

When I heard that they were putting out a modern opera-style soundtrack to Romeo + Juliet, it immediately went to the top of my list of CD's to buy. It was a great addition to my music library, and to this day gets listened to often. The music is awesome, the kind that grabs you by the heart and doesn't let go. All the tracks are fantastic, but the best sequence starts with track 20 - Mantua, and continues through 21, 22, and 23. For a great experience, turn off the lights, close your eyes and listed to those 4 tracks. I still jump every time the gun shot echoes out in "Death Scene"... Heartbreaking, that scene, both in the movie, especially with Claire Danes' wonderful acting, and on the CD, where you get to hear the music and see it in your mind's eye. Buy it today, or borrow it from a friend, listen to it, and then buy it!

The first volume of this soundtrack was definitely one of my favorite purchases of a CD, ever. I was disappointed that some of the instrumental songs and also the version of "When Doves Cry" was left off, so, by the same token, I was overjoyed when this one came out.
The weeping strings on most of the songs for the love scenes captures the mood of the greatest love story ever told perfectly, and the dialogue involved is a great complement to the music. Also included is the aforementioned version of "When Doves Cry" (inferior to the original Prince version, of course, but still great), which showcases the enormous talent the young boy who sings it has. They also stuck in the more upbeat, techno pieces that accompanied the more intense scenes in the movie for good measure, making the soundtrack eclectic and unlike anything I have ever heard to date.
This is definitely some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard, and some of the coolest. It is a great addition to a CD collection and a definite if you already own the first volume.

Format: Audio CD
I decided to buy this album because of the Introduction to Romeo track, which -- from the sample -- sounded like Radiohead's B-side "Talk Show Host" with woodwinds layered over softly. Genius, right?

And on the whole, most of the music on the album meets expectations. Eclectic bunch, from the orchestration of O Verona to the hip-hop and rock influenced pieces like the aforementioned Introduction to Romeo. Some of the more poppy tracks, including Young Hearts Run Free and When Doves Cry, I don't personally like at all. But most of the other compositions are very well done.

The problem is, there is dialogue from the movie inserted in every track. And I mean every track. Now, every so often I am certainly for some tasteful insertion of this kind of thing. But it gets really annoying when it's used without any kind of discretion at all; it really detracts from the music.

Case in point: the chilling woodwind arpeggio which opens the track Fight Scene gives way to wonderfully done string arrangements, but in the middle of this we have Tybalt and Romeo running lines. In my opinion, it's unnecessary and disruptive and really brings down an otherwise top-notch arrangement.

An exception is Mercutio's Death. This track contains a really well-delivered and fitting bit of dialogue which leads into a choral passage. But on other tracks, there's just too much of the talking mixed in.

If the dialogue's not going to bother you, then by all means get this album now. Also, I haven't seen the movie, so maybe I'm just not getting the whole re-creation aspect of it properly. But if you've bought the album not so much to relive the movie but to listen to in wider contexts, you may find this small qualm off-putting, like me. Otherwise, a really fine purchase.

I finally got around to buying this cd. I was looking for a particular song. You know the song that they used for the "X-Files" and "The Mummy" trailers? It has the chorus or chanting in the background. Well, it's on this cd!!! It is entitled "O Verona (Reprise)" Listen to it if you don't know what I'm referring to. At the same time, the rest of this soundtrack is great, I highly recommend it!
