5.0 out of 5 stars Most original 25 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
Bregovic's music has got not only many balkanic influences, but it is also universal (see Ausencia). A very deep feeling comes from his ballads, while from his other songs a true love of life expands. It reflects perfectly the atmosphere of the movie and I can relate to all of the songs. Most original!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable Big Brassy Band 29 Mar 2009
By Faye Ku - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the soundtrack for the movie "Underground". If you watched the movie and couldn't stop hearing the big brassy band in your head for days afterward, this is the cd to have and to keep. I am so thankful they put this out, so I don't have to watch the movie over and over just to get my fix. Mesecina, mesecina, joj, joj... My little one who used to cry in the car constantly as an infant, for some inexplicable reason, when I put this album on, he'd calm down and fall asleep. Guess he likes blare and rhythm and energy in his music!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great soundtracks of all time 15 April 2011
By Christopher Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all, if you haven't seen Emir Kusturica's film Underground yet, do so now. You'll discover a masterful depiction of 20th-century Balkan history through metaphor, by turns comically zany and profoundly heartwrenching (I cried).

The soundtrack that Goran Bregovic created for UNDERGROUND is a wonderful stew of Balkan influences: gypsy brass, some old geezer singing in Romani, and great big drums pounding complicated circle-dance rhythms. Showing that today's borders are arbitrary, he also brings in three singers from the Shopsko region of Bulgaria, whose traditional vocal techniques include some striking yelps and leaps of sevenths. (One of these singers, Snejanka Borissova, has produced an album of traditional songs that merits attention from fans of Eastern European folk music).

But Bregovic's sound goes beyond these more traditional elements. "Ringe Ringe Raja" is a look back to 1960s bubblegum pop. "Ausencia", featuring vocals by the lovely Cesaria Evora, and the haunting "War" and "Underground Tango" display Bregovic's talents at orchestral scoring. "The Belly Button of the World" is a mashup of the Balkan elements, scat singing, ambient samples and a national anthem.

This is a soundtrack so addictive that I have to keep it off my iPod these days, lest I listen to it to the exclusion of everything else. I think any human being with a pulse would respond to Bregovic's zesty rhythms and joie de vivre, so I give this a very wide recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Underground" soundtrack 31 Jan 2010
By T. J. Glenn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie about 10 years ago, and I swear to god the music has been stuck in my head ever since, mostly in the background, waiting for me to find it again and put it on the stereo. Description? The stuff that stuck in my auditory cortex is kind of a crazy Serbo-Croatian mariachi band with some techno-esque rhythm overlay. Probably not for everyone but this has become the favorite car music for me and my kids.

The movie itself is a little out there, but the soundtrack is unbelievable!!! Definitely a soundtrack for the soul! It arrived very quickly and has been on repeat in my car ever since.
