5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing!, April 20, 2006
This review is from: Brokeback Mountain (Audio CD)
The film was impeccable, and so was the soundtrack. When I saw the film, the amazing music score really got my attention. It was so remarkable & so moving that you couldn't even overlook, and it really captured the essence & emotion of the film flawlessly. If you liked the film, then I'm certain that you will also like the soundtrack because the music is one of the best things about the film. I've cried so many times after watching the beautiful Brokeback Mountain, and I couldn't help it but wept after listening to this inspiring soundtrack. It was so beautiful, heartbreaking and haunting that I was moved & touched so profoundly & deeply.

Gustavo Santaolalla's sparse, romantic score perfectly sets the tone for the film's panoramic countryside, while Willie Nelson's haunting, spoken narrative on "He Was a Friend of Mine" creates a mood as captivating as the one on Emmylou Harris' version of "A Love That Will Never Grow Old." Santaolalla's music for movies has involved a certain amount of experimentation, his work here is just subdued. The film had song usage in mind from the start, and Santaolalla also wrote multiple classically-inclined country ballads that have both been very well received by Country music collectors.

I would also recommend this soundtrack to all of you who haven't seen the film. I've shared this soundtrack with six of my friends (they haven't seen the film back then), and ALL OF THEM told me they got chills after listening to it. Now, five of them have bought both the DVD & soundtrack because they simply loved it.
