I bought this after seeing the film and liking the soundtrack. Since then, this album has consistently grown on me and still gets played on a regular basis. Some great funk, some more chilled out latin tunes, all with a soulful melodic touch. This CD is quirky and interesting, and takes pride of place in my collection. You won't be disappointed.

Fans of the film will not be disappointed, the soundtrack manages to capture the essence of the film, throwing in aspects of Funk and Latin beats that not only make you want to see the film again but in my case created a huge desire to travel to Brazil itself, such is the passion and energy of the score.

In a nutshell...if you loved the film, you will love the soundtrack

I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this CD. I haven't seen the film...indeed it doesn't really appeal to me, but I heard a small section of this on the trailer and was hooked. It doesn't disappoint. On here are jazz and funk numbers which are meant to recreate the 60's and 70's style music and this is exactly how I imagine the general funkiness of the period. Overall an excellent CD- nothing new- but simply fun!

Praise and Worship in the City of God 31 Mar 2005
By Michael Dalton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Michael Talbot's music epitomizes what I would think of as "sacred music." The way he combines truth, beauty and artistic excellence is truly inspirational.

What's impressive about his work is how much attention he pays to detail. I realized that when I read the liner notes in a past recording. I could see how much thought goes into his work, and that's evident once again on City of God.

The title comes from Augustine's monumental book by the same name. The cover art features a painting of Augustine's imagined city. It's also the theme of the title song and serves as a fitting summary of what this recording is all about. "Let us build the City of God / may your tears be turned into dancing / for the Lord, our light and our love / has turned the night into day."

When a friend of mine heard the opening electric guitar chords, he was as surprised as I was. That's how the song "City of God" starts. It's a fuller sound and the electric guitar is prominent around the chorus. "Blest Be the Lord" and "Sing to the Mountain" follow the same pattern musically. All have kind of a world-music sound with harmonizing that is reminiscent of the Talbot brothers. These songs reflect the joy that can be found in being part of the city of God.

But if you prefer John Michael Talbot's quiet side, have no fear. Most of the songs are done in his familiar style. Especially comforting are "Here I Am" and "Hosea," where John Michael sings as if God was speaking. "God Beyond All Names" and "Shepherd Me, O God" are chants that start quietly and build to a choir of petitioners. They will draw you in.

Most of the songs are all vertical in nature-sung directly to God. Lyrically, they are not overly complex, which makes them easy to use in a church setting. These are songs that John Michael Talbot has sung in congregations throughout the world.

This recording is a follow-up to the popular Table of Plenty that was released in 1997. Having never heard it, I can't make a comparison, but I don't believe that those who enjoyed the early recording would be disappointed with this.

City of God does more than soothe-it offers up simple praise and worship.

City of God - John Michael Talbot 6 Sep 2005
By JME - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I didn't fall in love with this CD immediately like I have on some of his early works. The format isn't what I expected and caught me off guard. Though I am still listening to the CD and it will probably grow on me. To me his early music was very grounding and this is more upbeat.

Not Up to Par 13 Feb 2014
By Glenn A. Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been a John Michael Talbot fan for 40 years. He has written great songs, played amazing guitar, and made many great albums. This is not one of them. The whole family (all fans of John Michael) listened to this "new" album this past Christmas. We universally disliked it. It lacks inspiration and sounds old. There was nothing to remark positively about except one or two songs at the very end. We still greatly respect John Michael, but I would not advise anyone to purchase this album. We listened to it once and may never put it on again.

Absolutely love it 21 Mar 2013
By Patti Rusczyk - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love City Of God especially because it has all my most favorite songs. In fact I am so pleased with City Of God that I ordered a CD for my car. If you want Catholic songs that can bring you to tears by touching your soul you should definitely buy City Of God.
