This soundtrack is so true to the story of the film , it also stands alone as a masterpiece as a sort of concept CD. Anyway the lowdown: Sarah Maclachlan's 'Angel' and Alanis Morissettes 'Uninvited' give virtuoso performances. It's a consistent CD every track is either cool, rocking, or melancholy. The last 4 tracks are my fave by Gabriel Yared who won an Oscar for his score on 'The English Patient' he also scored the music for 'Betty Blue' Message in A Bottle' and 'The Lover' , The 14th track ( City OF Angels ) is so emotive climaxing in a crescendo of Angels screaming in a mass falsetto of heartbreak and lament.
There is nothing to compare it to with exception to ' Passion / The Last Temptation Of Christ'.
I recommend this to anyone as its musical variation , lyrical consistency , and EFFECT is timeless , buy it today and I can guarantee you will be buying some of the other stuff from the compilation of artists who appear on this soundtrack.
Someone once wrote of Guardian Angels , that it is the flapping of Angels wings that makes our heartbeat and when your heart is broken they take you soul to God so he can reincarnate you in to a new host so you have another chance of finding truelove.
Whoever wrote it must have had this CD.
