Soundtrack is great, however I wish that they had recorded full songs for the ones we hear snippets of in the movie. I wonder what it would take to get Diego Luna to do a full version of "Creep"....

The movie was amazing and artistically beautiful so owning the soundtrack was a must. And, it did not disappoint as the music is mesmerizing.

I love the music from this movie and was excited to receive the soundtrack as a gift. If I could change a couple of things about it, besides actually including the lyrics to the songs, I'd make a couple of the Diego Luna tracks, Can't Help Falling in Love with You and No Matter Where You Are, longer than the short blips that they needed for the movie. I would have appreciated more of these heartfelt tunes and less of the Just a Friend by Biz Markie, which wasn't in the movie and isn't necessary to fulfill the soundtrack. But even without these changes, this is an excellent soundtrack with The Apology Song, in all its iterations, standing out as a marvelous bit of music.

Really great arrangement songs by Gustavo Santaolalla especially The Ecstasy of Gold. Too bad for the other cover songs, it was very short just as in the movie, like Creep, Can't Help Falling in Love, why don't they make in full version just for the cd's, but still love the soundtrack

This soundtrack is something I just had to have after I rented the movie (which I intend to buy at some point). Live Life is a nice upbeat song that I keep finding myself humming as I go about the TV station, but the real standouts here are the songs that were sung in the film. I Love You Too Much is one of my favorites, but the real knockout is I Will Wait, which helps set the tone for the rest of the film and makes me wish they'd finished out more of the song even after Carlos dragged Manolo away in the actual film. There are some score cues added to flesh out the album, along with some beautiful Spanish versions of the songs, as well as some more whimsical additions like Just a Friend and Do Ya Think I'm Sexy from the serenade scene. (I'm debating making Do Ya Think I'm Sexy my ringtone for a while - it's the right length and would make me laugh before the call to come).

The music on this soundtrack is beyond amazing. As a musician I can say that the composition was well thought out and heart and soul was poured into each melody. If you know about music you will understand what I mean when I say that. Some musical pieces are made to sell while other pieces, such as the ones on this cd, are a reflection of an intimate moment that allowed such beautiful melodies to come together to create something so special and unique.
The combination of English tunes with an ethnic tone is GENIUS!!! If you want to take a trip to amazing places that will bring your entire world to a halt while experiencing chills and peace at the same -to finding yourself unable to dance along, this masterpiece is for you!
