Usually, I avoid buying soundtracks. 'Cause for every good song, they contain two or three less than mediocre songs. »Eyes Wide Shut« is the exception confirming that rule!
This soundtrack contains perfect classical pieces, brilliant jazz, and the unique »Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing« sung by Chris Isaak, and used for the film's trailer.
Some of the tracks, like György Ligeti's tense yet pure compositions or the music from the breathtaking Masked Ball scene in the film, are highly dramatic. Others, like orchestra versions of »Strangers In The Night« and »When I Fall In Love«, are optimistic and light.
Well worth it, especially if you've seen the film. And if you haven't... well, do!

Wow - I had forgotten just how amazing this soundtrack is. Especially track 2 - the classic piece. So moving that it sent a chill and emotion through me. Chris Isaaks, Bad Bad Thing is a classic, and even if you haven't seen the film, the music tells the story. Highly recommend

When is a soundtrack not just a soudtrack? 15 Mar. 2000
By J. Lucas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When it's from a Stanley Kubrick film, that's when. Though it's not for everyone, the soundtrack to Kubrick's beautifully twisted final film, "Eyes Wide Shut", is a musical journey unlike any you've ever taken. Like the film itself, the "Eyes Wide Shut" soundtrack is a dreamlike experience, taking us from heaven to hell and back again. It is Dominic Harlan's riveting piano music that haunts much of the film, and, of course, every nightmarish note is here. We are quickly catapulted into that blurred reality that Tom Cruise's celluloid character spends his two evenings roaming the streets of New York in. Harlan's piano work has the same feel as Kubrick's film -- easily alternating between beautiful and frightening, real and surreal. Featured alongside Dominic Harlan's music on "Eyes Wide Shut" is the brilliant original score of Jocelyn Pook. Pook perfectly captures the film's beauty and menace in such themes as "The Dream", "Migrations" and especially (and most importantly), in the chilling theme, "Masked Ball". The masked ball scene appears midway through the movie and serves as the film's visual centerpiece and turning point. It is the moment where dreams and reality converge once and for all, setting the harrowing second act into motion. Jocelyn Pook's music in this scene -- hypnotic, frightening, and gorgeous -- does wonders for the effectiveness and power of this moment in the film, and is especially glorious when listened to through your headphones. All in all, the "Eyes Wide Shut" soundtrack is not merely a collection of recordings from an extraordinary film. It is a companion to that film, in which we trace Tom Cruise's footsteps through his two nights of dreams and reality, curiosity and jealousy, paranoia and revenge, and finally -- hopefully - truth and redemption. If you're up for the experience, it's a trip well worth taking.

Jocelyn Pook has a cd! 23 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I loved Jocelyn Pook's music for Eyes Wide Shut. It's really the only reason I would buy this soundtrack. However most people don't know that Jocelyn Pook released her own cd, Flood, a month ago. It's at amazon. You just have to go under classical search to find it. It's got the complete six minute masked ball song as well as migrations. I can't believe amazon doesn't list it as a recommendation for this album. Anyway I just wanted to let you know that the cd is out there and easily available. However, it doesn't have all of Ms. Pook's compositions for this movie which makes the Eyes Wide Shut soundtrack worth owning as well. If you are like me and loved her music and would like more of the same, check out her new cd Flood. It's truly magical!

Mesmerizing! 3 Dec. 1999
By I.M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After listening to the soundtrack of "2001:A Space Odyssey" i never thought i would find another album with such haunting tunes. I'm so glad that i'm wrong. Kubrick, once more, blends "his" vision of the world with "others'" sounds. The incredible diversity this soundtrack provides leaves me speechless. It's jazz, it's classical, it's pure rock, all wrapped up in one, shining just like a gem. They're the tunes, for sure, Kubrick had in mind. To perfect the film, to make it dream-like, to have it palpable. This is one of the rare soundtracks that won't disappoint you, but enrich your musical world just as Kubrick enriches your visual one.

Matches well the set and costume design of Kubrick's film 26 April 2001
By Christopher Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although Stanley Kubrick's final film "Eyes Wide Shut" was controversial and blasted by many critics, there is little doubt that the film exhibited meticulous and lush set and costume design. The film's soundtrack does an excellent job of matching the style of Kubrick's visuals.
The soundtrack opens with Ligeti's minimalist masterpiece "Musica Ricercata, II" performed by the precise Dominic Harlan. Next is the film's opening theme, Shostakovich's "Waltz 2 from Jazz Suite," a sweepingly grand piece given an excellent performance by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Chris Isaak's "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing" is the only rock music track on the entire soundtrack, but it fits in surprisingly well.
It is, however, the compositions of Jocelyn Pook which truly stand out. He first two pieces, "Naval Officer" and "The Dream" are quiet, disturbing mood pieces. "Masked Ball" is the track played during the opening of the infamous orgy sequence, and it features a chorus played backwards, forming a sort of black-mass atmosphere. "Migrations" is played during the continuation of the orgy, as the Doctor walks room to room. With its wild yell and frenetic strings, this is the climax of the album.
The big-band pieces can seem trivial compared to the artistic heights of Pook, but they add good incidental accompaniment to the film.
One of the better film soundtracks out there, EYES WIDE SHUT is worth getting, even if the film itself let you down for plot reasons.

For those who criticize music without understanding it 14 Jun. 2004
By "neu-neu" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Jocelyn Pook's Masked Ball song wasn't just a simple reverse of another existing song, not at all.
What do you obtain if you reverse the song used in the movie? You get a similar opera tunes with a rommanian greek-orthodox pray. Though, the music (not the voice) is now played backward.
So unless there was some big opera in rommanian churchs where all the musicians were on drugs, playing and reading their music sheets backward, this mean the only thing that has been "stolen" was the prayer's voice. The orchestral song has been made to put the reversed voice on. They didn't just "clic" on a reverse button and voila. Jocelyn Pook did write an orchestral score and only added a reversed voice on it. Now don't tell me that composing an orchestral song is easy as ripping a Beethoven track ala Puff Daddy.
