This soundtrack is every bit as good as the film (once you get past the bad language) with its haunting refrain repeated on various tracks. There is an inevitable sadness that epitomises the story of the film, together with the heavy implied threat of violence and the tragic consequences of the characters' actions that Carter Burwell has captured unbelievably well.

Most of the mp3 downloads are not at the full 320bitrate,this may be because many of the tracks are soft and melodical and of a classical genre and it is argued that a lower bitrate is more suited to softer tracks.However,because of this,the tracks seem to be under recorded and sound a little flat. This said.the music itself sets the mood for the scenes within the film in an emphatic manner. Haunting and delightful snippets of beauty that is what I say.In my view a good soundtrack creates images of the scenes in the mind even when one is far away from the DVD player.In this respect,the soundtrack is a total success.

Unexplored possibilities 12 Dec. 2008
By Tivor - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you enjoyed the movie "In Bruges" as much as I did, then you know a big part of the movie's charm was its lyrical and haunting score. So as soon as I finished watching the DVD, I ordered the soundtrack CD off Amazon, ecstatic to hear the full-length versions of the movie's amazing music.

Unfortunately, I did not get the full-length versions as I had hoped. Rather, I got a collection of 1-minute-ish snippets of the music cues from the movie.

Look at Amazon's track list. Aside from the songs from other artists, you will see that all tracks except two are less than 2 minutes long. That's simply not enough time to develop a motif into a fully evolving musical piece.

And when the motifs are as beautiful as the ones in this CD, it's criminally frustrating to have a track end just when you are about to fall into its mesmerizing flow. So many tracks could have benefitted from having at least an extra minute (or even extra 30 seconds) added to its length to build up and develop more fully.

There is no question that the music in this CD has captivating hooks and excellent arrangements to go along with them. And if there was at least just ONE track (say, 5-6 minutes long) that allowed the music to unfold and explore more of its musical possibilities, then I would not hesitate to give this CD a full 5-star rating.

But as it stand, the CD feels more like a collection of snippets than a complete work of musical soundtrack -- an unfulfilled glimpse into the grand scope of what the piece could have been.

I had very high expectations for this CD, and I have to say, I am sorely disappointed.

Guilt and Sins and Hell and All That--In Bruges 12 Mar. 2008
By Corey Johnson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Carter Burwell is at the top of his game with this fantastic score.

In Bruges is a great film to begin with, and the score only adds to this. In perhaps his best work since Fargo, Burwell creates several beautiful themes with a limited range of instruments, and provides an interesting texture to a movie full of interesting textures.

Highlights include "Shootout, Pt. 2," which is possibly the best theme on the disc, and "Prologue," which is a wonderfully contemplative piano piece that lets Burwell's wonderfully understated composition shine.

Highly recommended, as the score manages to be an interesting standalone listen, as well as a perfect companion to the film.

Brilliant, Haunting Composition 21 Aug. 2008
By Gulshan Batra - Published on
There are movies where the soundtrack plays on, and it adds to the theme of the movie. Then there are movies, where the soundtrack adds nothing. And then, there are movies where the soundtrack more than adds to the movie.

The soundtrack of "In Bruges" must fall in the third category. I can't recollect many soundtracks that accentuate the mood of the movie it is supposed to hold up, especially a movie as complex as "In Bruges".

To be honest, I'd not heard of Carter Burwell before this soundtrack, but I was watching this movie earlier today, and the background music moved me so much, that I stopped the movie (was on DVD!), went online and bought the soundtrack right then and there! Burwell has earned his places of respect in my list - entering way up there, with the likes of John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Henry Mancini, Danny Elfman and James Horner.

If you liked the movie, you'll love the music.
Overall: 5 / 5.

I found that the music perfectly accompanied the move perfectly. I liked the movie immensely, and the music followed that feeling right along.
