Product Description

The soundtrack to the upcoming movie with Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell features 17 songs from such artists as Mogwai, Nina Simone, Patti Labell & Mark Batson, Goldfrapp and Moby. Movie opens in wide release on 07-28-06

Amazon.com

Like the film itself, the soundtrack to Miami Vice is no 1980s retro-ride. Sure, it opens with "In the Air Tonight," but it's a cover by nü metal band Nonpoint taken from their 2004 album Recoil. Director Michael Mann's slick revisionist aesthetics are confirmed on two types of tracks. First, there are the dancefloor-friendly ones like "One of These Mornings" (a collaboration between Moby and Patti Labelle) and a house remix of Nina Simone’s "Sinnerman" by Felix da Housecat. Then there are the more atmospheric offerings, such as a couple instrumentals by Scottish band Mogwai and the last four tracks, that suggest the kind of steel-blue ambiance Mann is so good at creating (especially John Murphy's "Mercado Nueva" and Klaus Badelt & Mark Batson's "A-500"). Odder is the lack of local flavor: there's only a pair of Latin-flavored tracks, Arranca and Emilio Estefan, for instance. Not to mention that if ever there was a soundtrack that should have included at least one Miami bass song, it's this one. As for those who still associate Miami Vice with pastel colors and the 1980s, they're better off checking out the soundtrack to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City--a video game that's actually more faithful to the spirit of the TV series than the movie that bears its name. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

By M. Hoffman on July 25, 2006
Format: Audio CD
There was strange thing that happened to me. Way back in 2004 after seeing Collateral, I discovered a band called Mogwai. For two years now I would traverse the empty city streets in the middle of the night listening to Mogwai thinking "Mogwai songs should have been the soundtrack to Collateral." Well, as Vincent in Collateral said, "we're good together, twists of fate, cosmic coincedence."

Now all of a sudden two Mogwai songs will appear in Mann's new flick, Miami Vice. Most of this soundtrack is electronic music, with the two Mogwai tracks and Nonpoint's cover of Phil Collin's "in the air tonight." There is also 4 tracks from the "original score" at the end.

Here is what i think of every track:

1. Nonpoint "in the air tonight" (4:33): I was never into this band, or nu-metal, at all. People may not accept this. But, however, I was surprised by it. It is good, but it gives itself away too quickly. The Phil Collins song was a cresendo that built up in atmosphere before climaxing. Nonpoint's version is a regular verse/chorus/verse/chorus setup. Still is pretty good and could've been alot worse. 3.5/5

2. Moby feat. Patti Labelle "one of these mornings" (4:01): This is a differant version of the same song on Moby's album "18." I've already seen the scene where this song plays and it fits so perfectly. Just the speedboat racing accros the sea. I've alway loved Moby's music because he combines electro beats with classical melody's. Typical Moby here. I can't pick if I like this version or the album version better. Mann used Moby in spectacular fashion in Heat. Moby...over the face of the waters, ironic huh? 4.5/5

3. Mogwai "we're no here" (5:38): I love Mogwai. Cinematic rock music. All post-rock is cinematic.

Movie was nothing special.

But!! There were 2 killer tracks in the movie that are not on the soundtrack. Apparently they are from AudioSlave's upcoming release "Revelations".

The track titles are:

"Shape of Things to Come"

"Wide Awake"

I actually like this CD, I like how eclectic it is. It has something for every mood. However, my dissappointment about the omission of particular songs takes away my complete enjoyment. I couldn't believe they left out the signature song Numb by linkin park and Jay-z. That song played in the beginning and every trailer, amping the movie and setting the tone for the whole thing. I got excited every time I heard it, and then they leave it out! What's up with that? And, yeah during the movie I heard Chris Cornell twice and thought cool, never heard those songs can't wait for the soundtrack. Those songs, in addition to all the cool techno-electronica re-mixes, the great salsa song playing when they were in Cuba, and the love song by India Arie is what got me to buy it. The CD did not live up to its' potential for greatness. Had it had all the notable songs it would've been a definate 5 stars.

Michael Mann is one of those few directors who is just as known for the soundtracks to his films as for the movies themselves. Going back to his classic 1995 "Heat," on through "The Insider," "Ali" and "Collateral," Mann has garnered a reputation for selecting the perfect music pieces and songs to set the atmospheric, almost haunting tones of his movies. With "Miami Vice" the movie, Mann tries to pump up the storyline and characters for the post-80's era, the soundtrack does the same. Both barely resemble the original TV series, gone here are the 80's pop tunes by Journey and Phil Collins, they are replaced by more modern dance, electronic and even hard rock tracks that set the exact tone needed for a "Miami Vice" set in 2006. That said, ignore the haters who wish Mann would have stuck to pastels, his film is better than most cop flicks and the soundtrack is more interesting than most of the recent pickings in the soundtrack category. The set begins with the band Nonpoint doing a hard rock cover of "In The Air Tonight," the Phil Collins tune that became the signature theme of the show, it's a metal-edged version that also manages to keep the spirit and feel of the original with a little more intensity and less gloss. The album then goes into a very diverse mix of songs that embody the whole Miami atmosphere. There's Nina Simone's clubbish cover of "Sinnerman" that has a fun, almost futuristic feel. Manzanita's "Arranca" is a Latin-tinged track with a stylish, lush arrangement. India Arie's "Ready For Love" is a beautiful ballad with wonderful vocals. "Strict Machine" by Goldtrapp is one of the most fun tracks on the album, a club tune with candy vocals and a killer beat and catchy chorus, you've probably heard it on TV commercials.Read more ›

As director Michael Mann very selctively picked each song for this soundtrack, you know that a connoisseur was at work. Yes, there's lots of techno on this album, but it's really good stuff. There are some gems like King Britt's "New World in my View" ... a Sister Gertrude Morgan song, then a song by India Arie, and salsa musician Manzanita, as well as compositions by Moby.

This soundtrack really captures the mood of the film, but also stands on its own just like the film does. It's an interesting compilation of songs to say the least, but it's a CD that will allow the listener to discover some excellent music by somewhat overlooked artists like King Britt and India Arie, and perhaps by digging a bit deeper even New Orlean's Gospel legend Sister Gertrude Morgan.

Most certainly this CD should be part of most CD collections, ... and we all know how hard it is even in our days to get the great soundtracks of past movies like e.g. Scarface, etc., ... for whatever reason these albums can become scarce over the years.
