By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE on June 21, 2008
Format: Audio CD
The "Dexter" soundtrack is very good. The CD includes the fabulous main theme of the show by Rolfe Kent, plus many other snippets of music and vocal clips from the series. Highlights include the peppy, electronic "Uruapan Breaks" by Kinky; the Latin-infused "Flores Para Ti" by Raw Artistic Soul, featuring Rafael Cortez; the energetic "Con Mi Guaguanco" by Ray Armondo; "Perfidia" by Mambo All-Stars; and the score tracks "Escalation," "Deborah Loves Rudy/The House," "Photo Albums," "Courting the Night," "Hide Your Tears," "Astor's Birthday Party," and "Blood Theme."

Most of the tracks are outstanding. The only minor problem is that the majority of the songs are only a minute or so long, which is a trend commonly found in TV or movie soundtracks. Still, the CD does a good job of capturing the macabre, Miami feel of the Showtime series.

One fun thing to note: The album comes packages in a blood-red plastic CD case, which isn't something you can see on the Amazon.com page. That in itself is pretty funny, and it's almost worth buying the CD just for that reason.

Overall, if you love the show "Dexter," I think you'll enjoy this soundtrack.

Every moody chord of every track of DEXTER emotes the often dark and always rich tone of this outstandingly well-produced series. Put yourself in Dexter's shoes for an hour of exceptional background music (with the excpetion of Any Williams' Born Free track). With more than a little resemblance to the BATMAN 2 soundtrack (remember all of those strings for Catwoman's slinky moves?) and a bit of Tim Burton as well, just, well, more grown up. Did I do a Google on the composers? you bet, and found a rich history of other work that looks worthy of checking out.

It seems less-than-Jake to just call this a soundtrack as much as an iconic album: for a subculture of soundtrack freaks, here's a killer album (good pun). For casual listeners, here's a jazzy aural dose of Dex between episodes and seasons. Artistically, I'd rack it alongside A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS as a stand-alone album. eerie Indian strains weave through classic movie adventure/horror passages: more Trans Siberian Orchestra than tv tunery. A perfect companion for pulling up a great book on a winter's night. It sounds as great on my office boom box as it does on a bigger system: nice bass; rich flavor. This is the art of soundtracking that is 100% perfect.

A few quotes from Dexter's first season make it warmly creepy, and for me, a guy who listens in the car while on those dark, long drives, this is wonderful, wonderful mood music, from Miami's latin sound through incidental pieces.

I'll admit to quickly downloading several tracks from iTunes: if you hate rap as much as I do, skip at least one track: an itunes exclusive rap bit that sounds like a 30 ROCK Tracy Morgan parody... of inane rap. But wished they'd have included these on the CD, GRRRRRRRRRR.

It's a TV soundtrack, so some of the clips aren't full-length songs; some are the same song done different ways; adn not all the music from the series is represented here. That said, it's fantastic. I listened to it several times, and I'm not much for music, so that should tell you something.

Yes, this is an excellent soundtrack and I say not just for fans of the show. A real work of art. But like some of the other reviewers here, I did not appreciate the completely out of place last track - the hip hop version of the end credits turned into a 'song', "Die This Way". I guess for people who are into rapping etc, it might be OK, but to me it was out of place and a terrible ending for an otherwise flawless work of art.

Interesting to note that last track was done by Jon Licht and Daniel Licht, whereas the other 'Mood' tracks were all just done by Daniel Licht. Google informs us that Jon is Daniel's nephew and also works on the show. If the producers do further albums of Dexter music - and I hope they do - please just leave the token/gratuitous rap out.

Thanks to the listen feature on Amazon, I could ensure all the best musics and melodies are present on this disc, that is mainly the music from Daniel Licht.
Dexter is a great show, and the role the soundtrack played in that success is probably underestimated.
This disc contains the captivating melodies heard throughout the beginning of the show - meaning mostly through all seasons since the musics were then reused in later seasons.

Daniel Licht deserves some sort of award for the "original score" selections on this CD. My vote goes for "best music CD of the last 20 years." I am only talking about the "original scores," not the jazzy latin songs on the first part which are OK if you like that stuff.

It is one of the best music CD's I have ever bought. No joke. There is something very special about the original scores. Hard to put a finger on it, but suffice it to say that there is something very satisfying about most of the original scores here. A few are downright magical.

While no music is for everyone of course, anyone who likes the show will probably want this CD.

There is definitely something unique about this music. When I have friends over and I have this music playing, they always say "what IS that?! I simply MUST have it!" It really catches their attention.

I have seen a complaint that there is one rap song on this CD. Yes, it is true: but I have to say that it is the one rap song I have ever heard that I like. Since it's foundation is the very good "blood theme," with some additional nice repeating piano bits, as well as some of the most wonderful female backup vocals I have ever heard (I sure do wish I had a song whose main focus was those great female vocals !!! ), it is simply a great song. If you like the TV show, I don't see how you could not like this rap song.
