Those of you who have seen this film - and if you haven't, then you must see it soon as it is one of the greatest ever - will know just how good this soundtrack is. Evoking all of the sensous colours and textures of the film that spans four centuries, this CD takes us from the stiff, bejewelled Elizabethan court (with Jimmy Somerville singing in fantastic falsetto) to the techno 1990s (with Jimmy Somerville singing in, er, fantastic falsetto), via the ice fields of the Thames (no, really), the sands of Constantinople and the drawing rooms of eighteenth century poets. Most of the tracks are purely instrumental and veer from the gently melancholic (Ice) to the thumpingly dramatic (The Maze). The final track, I Am Coming, is stunning. Lie on the floor, turn the volume way up and be transported...

If you like Philip glass. Michael Nyman and hi nrg disco then you'll like this. A wonderful film and this recalls the beautiful imagery and themes. File under modern classical. But with a little input from bronski beat!

There is one track on this CD worth listening to, and that's 'coming' from Jimmy Summerville. The rest is in my opinion a mish-mash of the most disjointed puerile rubbish put on disc. Avoid it like the plague!

Background of Orlando's scenes 9 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Overall, this is an excellent album. The Jimmy Somerville song "Coming" is faithfully reproduced here. I wish I could say the same for the second track "Eliza." "Eliza," as it is performed in the actual film, is a beautiful song and was the reason I searched so long for this soundtrack. When I saw its name on the listing I didn't think twice about purchasing the album. Unfortunately, Jimmy Somerville's scene of singing it in the film must be simply considered dialogue because this track only features the background instruments to that scene and the credits. There is only a bare, and extremely short, echo of its actually being sung. I was truly dissappointed. I recommend, as I should have done, that people listen to samples before they buy. But the rest of the album is spectacular.

Went back to the theatre to LISTEN to the movie the next day 30 Mar. 2000
By Peter T. Duffy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When the lights came up after "Coming" blew me away I sat there stunned. My friends patiently waited for me as I recovered. The next day I went back to a matinee showing and sat in the almost empty theatre drinking in the sound of this film. The soundtrack is absolutely wonderful! I relive the movie in part when I listen to it. I had a roommate when this movie came out who bought the CD and he fell asleep to it every night for a month. Some of the transitions on the soundtrack are a wee bit abrupt, but no more so than other soundtracks (better in fact than a lot) I've worked "Coming" into my DJ sessions and always get great comments. Well worth owning if you liked the movie.

Beautiful! 2 Mar. 2000
By Damien Ruud - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The score of this movie is more than magical, but the best reason to get it is for "Coming". This song has a "world beat" texture and the great falsetto of Jimmy Somerville adds to the mix. The song is basically having a person who has learned from and survived the past,is revelling in the freedom of the present, and embraces the future with open arms and all the hope and promise it brings. Get this for sure!

This soundtrack rocks 15 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I admit I bought this CD just for Jamie Somverville's song Coming. Coming just blows me away everytime I hear it. It is not often that you listen to a song that will make you dance and think. The song is full of contradictions. The singer is everything and nothing at the same time. Dying and being born at the same time. This jibes so well with the scene in the movie in which Orlando realizes that he/she is 'The same person but a different sex'. Its almost as if saying we are all really the same its just blind luck which type of body you get born into. The uplifting verse about being free makes this one of my all time favorite songs. We are all hopefully be(Coming) something better.

The song "Coming" is spiritually orgasmic 22 July 2003
By Yumi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I loved the movie, the soundtrack,the whole package (whatever the wrapping paper was).It was all Great! But the Jimmy Sommerville song is so beautiful!! I went and bought some of his other stuff but it wasn"t the same..
I wished he would do a Cd with that type of singing!
