My litmus test with soundtracks is if they survive a good listening experience on their own as either classical pieces or showtune type songs and this one does it better than most.
Establishing a simple, repeated lullaby early on, Javier Navarrete's entire score builds on this tune, exporing deeper, darker, and ever more complex tunes with every track before returning to the simple melody at the end.
This CD includes musical cues not actually used in the film, although after repeated viewings of the film and listening to the soundtrack dozens of times, I'm hard-pressed to tell you which are which. The music--all of it--is so beautiful that the listener is almost immediately lost in the world it evokes. And even at nearly an hour and fourteen minutes, the music rarely repeats itself and never gets old.
An excellent companion piece for anyone who enjoyed the movie or anyone who loves beautiful music. Highly recommended.
This soundtrack is simply amazing. I've been to the Pan's Labyrinth Official site before I watched the movie and I was blown away by the background music on the site. I left the window open and I was delighted to know that every song (or almost every song) is looped on there. Since I didn't know the name of the melody I was hearing, it melded together into a euphoric delight. In part, this is what drove me to watch the movie. I believe this is the most beautiful soundtrack I have ever heard for a movie. I have a little misgiving for bumping the Gattaca soundtrack to number 2 on my list now. I can't wait to lie in bed dreaming of returning to Pan's Labyrinth.
(PS. for the complainers about the trailer song, it's by X-Ray Dog and called "The Revelation" as far as I know it was recorded for the trailer so it's not released anywhere, but the crafty might have luck finding it on the internet)

Extremely beautiful from start to finish. I love that many of the pieces are versions of the main theme. Some are dark, some are magical, some are soft, some are sad. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Francisco Partida

Navarrete's somber and hauntingly beautiful lullaby is a classic. Although I love movie scores, very few of them stick with you in such a way that you still hear them in your head... Read morePublished 17 months ago by S. Farris
