Product Description


Given his status as America's top male sex symbol, there's a perverse irony to Tom Cruise's virtually simmer-free performance in this would-be erotic thriller, Vanilla Sky, Cameron Crowe's remake of Spanish director Alejandro Amenábar's Abre los Ojos ("Open Your Eyes"). But ifCrowe stops just short of delivering another undercooked Tom turkey, his vaunted early years as boy-wonder rock writer--and the help of frequent collaborator Danny Bramson--informs the film with an exceptionally rich and eclectic pop-musicscore that leans heavily on unreconstructed psychedelia. Such was the Crowe-Bramson reputation that they secured original songs by no less than REM (the janglypop of "All the Right Friends") and Paul McCartney (a playfully obtuse title track that would otherwise be a stand-out on any modern Mac album), wrapping them in one sublime surprise, original and otherwise: Sigur Rós's hypnotic "Svefn-g-englar"; the gorgeous languor of "Have You Forgotten" by Red House Painters; star Cameron Diaz debuting as a singer (under the name Julianna Gianni) with Crowe and wife/film scorer/Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson in Wilson's equally dreamy "I Fall Apart"; the Monkees' psychedelic "Porpoise Song", Radiohead's "Everything in Its Right Place" and Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye". Constructed as the playlist of some strangely liberated FM broadcast that never was, this soundtrackis also a collection that proves that the best part of any turkey may well be the stuffing--sonic or otherwise.--Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic but some songs missing. 14 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
I love Vanilla Sky. It got to me more than any other film. Mainly because of Tom Cruises performance. One thing that stood out for me is the music. How do they come up with some of this stuff? Like the film, the soundtrack is a beutifull masterpiece. For those of you wanting the song that is playing when David Aames jumps from the building at the end, this song is from Sigur Ros. It is from thier album called () and it is Untitled Song #4. This song is criminally missing from the soundtrack. Which is amazing because it has a massive impact combined with the scene itself. Get it on ITunes now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 12 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Like other reviewers, I was temped to buy this soundtrack a long time before I had seen 'Vanilla Sky'because of its amazing mixture of sounds. I was surprised and delighted by just how well Crowe matches every track so beautifully to every moment, building up rich layers of atmosphere and emotion. I would highly recommend both the film and the soundtrack, a warm and exquisitely rich experience to watch and hear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crowe knows his stuff 28 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Perhaps other reviewers may have been expecting Jerry Maguire 2 having seen Cruise and Crowe linked again, but this film and soundtrack prove otherwise. The film is outstanding, proving intelligent and, contrary to other opinions, showcasing one of Cruise's best performances in years. This soundtrack album, although missing a couple of songs found in the film, notably Radiohead's 'I Might Be Wrong', it does include all the important, dramatic songs. The idea of a companion soundtrack is to accompany a film, and this succeeds perfectly, especially if you have seen the film, as every piece of music brings back to mind images from one of the best and most original films of recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars is this CD real? 27 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
Is what i was thinking when i clapped eyes on the tracklisting to Vanilla Sky. I havent seen the film, but it looks pretty cool, and if its anything like its soundtrack, it'll be the best film ever! Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, REM, Chemical Brothers and Bob Dylan, all on the same soundtrack! it's amazing to think that such huglely talented yet sorely under-rated bands like Sigur Ros and Red House Painters are all on the same CD which quite literally millions of people will listen to if they see the film. Props go to writer/ director Cameron Crowe for his brilliant choices for this film. If you haven't gotten around to buying 'Kid A' or 'Agaetis Byrjun' or 'Dig Your Own Hole', this is a cracking way to get the standout tracks on one CD. Top marks!

Oh come on! The movie was great! Though the movie leaned more on the love aspects compared to the original (I saw this movie without realising it was a remake), it still was excellent and well worth it. The good thing about Cameron Crowe is that he'll inject the best music in the movie and you won't get just the standard pop fillers or cheesy love-ballads but rather a well thought out accompaniment that enriches the movie experience. A superb cut from retro-psychedelia through to current day hot shots, it's not only a good soundtrack, it's as good a album there is at the moment.
Four stars only because I don't give out 5 stars. Watch the movie and buy the CD, then watch Almost Famous and buy that CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright Sunny Day Music 21 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
"Music From Vanilla Sky" is a well put together cd that contains chill-out, pop, rock, and indie rock music. "Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel, "Svefn-g-englar" by Sigur Ros, "Sweetness Follows" by R.E.M., and "Where Do I Begin" by The Chemical Chemical Brothers are some of the satisfying tunes on this cd. The "Music From Vanilla Sky" soundtrack is best for those who like café type beats from various artists.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bought this for two quid 19 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
OST Vanilla Sky was nominated for an Academy award. The film's soundtrack has been called "a music masterpiece" by The New York Times. The eclectic taste of the soundtrack has been said to be one of the reasons the movie has become a cult hit. However the CD is missing Spiritualised "Ladies nd Gentltmen...."

I love the following tracks on this album -

Radiohead - Anything in its right place
Paul McCartney - Vanilla Sky
Peter Gabriel - Solisbury Hill
Julianna Gianna - I fall apart
The Monkees - Porpoise song
Looper - Mondo '77
Leftfield - Afrika show
Sigur Ross - sven
Jeff Buckley - Last Goodbye
Bob Dylan - Fourth time
REM - Sweetness Follows

This ost is worth every penny.

Res ipsa loquitur
