If you WANT to feel gloomy, it's powerful in a positive way
on August 23, 2001
So you've either been looking for the version of "When Doves Cry" that was in the movie, or the first soundtrack wasn't enough. Well, if the former is true, you simply have to decide whether it's worth it to buy a whole album for one song. But in the other scenario, you have a bigger problem. This album is nothing like the first. I enjoy instrumental music, but this CD just depresses me. The album is amazing in that it has so much power to bring a person down. "O Verona" is great when you want to crank it up and yell along with the music, and the instrumental version of "Kissing You" is incredible. The second half of the album, however, actually made me cry...something a CD without memories attached to it has never done before. Buy it if you're really into classical or if you noticed that you enjoyed the background music during the movie. Do not buy it if you're looking for an encore to the first soundtrack.
