I'm listening to my remastered Birdy CD as I type this and after much deliberation I have to say that I am of the belief that this remains Gabriel's finest soundtrack work.
I also have (and adore) his contributions to Passion (Last Temptation of Christ) and Long Walk Home (Rabbit Proof Fence), but this CD continues to blow me away even more.
Perhaps it's the fact that some of these tracks are effectively "instrumental" versions of some of Peter's finest early songs (San Jacinto was an incredible experience for me Live at the Sheffield Arena recently - epic and amazing stuff)
I think it's fair to say that not all of this CD will please everybody - we are talking about Peter Gabriel here after all. He really seems to thrive on challenging the listener - even if that means on occasion his fans (witness his most recent studio album "UP" for more on that! - a superb release, but it was a slow-burner for me ... but I got there in the end!)
Overall, Birdy is Peter's strongest soundtrack score in my humble opinion - and it's also his most varied in terms of style. At this price (especially for the remastered edition) it has to be worth a listen, doesn't it?
-John

4.0 out of 5 stars Quiet and Alone 7 Jan 2007
By L. Hutchinson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album that showcased Gabriel's skill of not only making wonderful music, but also a film score: however, there is a difference here. This difference is that this album is not only a mixture of new material but also tracks from his two previous albums: "Peter Gabriel, Vol. 3" and "Peter Gabriel, Vol. 4", but they are now instrumental.

I have to say that I was delighted when I first listened to this album for the first time, which still continues with subsequent times I have played this album. There have been times when I have heard a number of tracks and wondered what it would be like if they were simply instrumental or some of the instruments were altered, as well as some of the production effects. Well this album does just that with further added experimentation that you would expect from Gabriel. However, please do not let the word "experimentation" put you off: Gabriel does experiment, but it is highly listenable, with his musical talent always bursting forward.

Unlike most soundtrack albums, this can be listened to as an album in its own right. It is very rewarding, it is an album that can be only described as "ambience". It is very relaxing and takes you on a journey. This may sound slightly clichéd, as most albums are journey carriers by some definition but this is just soothing and you can easily relax with it and let it take you on a mental journey. This has helped me with some self-therapy: by helping me delve into my mind. That is how powerful this album is. Please buy it. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 15 Nov 2006
By Peter Lee TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This album blew me away because it is a soundtrack with a difference. Most of the tracks are based on instrumental versions of the songs from Peter Gabriel's fourth album but treated in a much more experimental way. Hugely impressive for a first soundtrack album, this is a great album, and gives hints of the genius that was to come with "Passion" a few years later.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabriels First Film Score 30 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1984, Alan Parker Asked gabriel whether he would be interested in writing a score for his film about friendship during the Nam war, Birdy. Gabriel quickly discovered that the film created atmosphere of Claustraphobia. he then uses this within his work. Gabriel was also interested in reworking his earlier ideas and in this album he reworks, 5 Tracks from his 1980 album 3 and 1982 album 4. The Fairlight Synthisizer features hugely in this album and creates an atmosphere not creatable from organic instruments.
Gabriel Certainly in this album shows the now how to create atmosphere, feelings and even fear within his music. this is certainly a mini project against his epic 'Passion- The score from the last temptation of Christ' - 2 Thumbs Fresh! Keep them Coming!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gabriel's first sountrack work. 13 April 2002
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
This is the soundtrack to Alan Parker's 'Birdy' released in 1984. Gabriel took elements of the previous two albums & reworked them in with a few original pieces to score the touching film (probably Parker's best). Some of the tracks remain instrumental takes of the original- such as 'The Heat' (PG4's 'Rhythm of the Heat')-which is used in the surreal pharmacy scene in 'Natural Born Killers' & 'Snapshot'- which is 'Family Snapshot' reworked to fit the bird's eye perspective of the film. We also get short elements of songs like 'San Jacinto'. To be fair, this is not essential- as many PG-fans will have versions of these tracks in a more vocal form-the sleeve does carry a warning! This would be Gabriel's initial step towards composing a film score- which he did for Scorsese's 'Last Temptation of Christ' ('Passion'). Which is one of the finest scores of all time- up there with those by Phillip Glass & Ryuichi Sakamoto. But if you liked the film or would just like to appreciate an instrumental album that floats the flow of thoughts- then this is one for you!
