Format:Audio CD
I was mesmerised by the film Passion - both a visual and audio feast. Shortly afterwards I bought the soundtrack - Passion - and have enjoyed listening to it ever since. However, there were a number of pieces of music in the film not on the soundtrack. I was really pleased to discover that "Passion - Sources" includes a number of these and provides other pieces of world music which inspired Peter Gabriel. From Baaba Maal's Call to Prayer to Antranik Askarian's Song of Complaint, this entire album will bring to you the warmth, colour and sounds of the Near East. A great album to relax to and switch off from the world around you...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely background music 25 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As the other reviewer said, if you liked Peter Gabriel's "Passion" you should get this. This album contains all of the source material which inspired Gabriel's own music, and PG himself produces this collection but doesn't appear on it. Nice background music, and a good companion volume to one of the greatest soundtracks of all time in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful 16 May 2011
By Kiwirob
Format:Audio CD
A superbly emotional, evocative album that is years ahead of its time, I have only recently got into Peter Gabriel's older work and I have to check the date on this as I was convinced it was recent.
Very different, yet very Gabriel, take a chance as I did and enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Tour of the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia 22 May 2006
By Zekeriyah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD is one of the two soundtracks for the movie "The Last Temptation of Christ". The other one, "Passion", deals more with Peter Gabriel's performances. This one deals with the more traditional Middle Eastern music used and sampled for the film. This CD is perhaps the greatest introduction to Oriental (Middle Eastern, Indian, African, Persian, Turkish, etc) music that is available. It covers an incredibly diverse range of styles and cultures. The songs on here range from wonderful songs performed by excellent artists (NFAK, Hossam Ramzey, Shankar, etc) to authentic ethno-music recordings. The first song is a wedding song from the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan himself, giving a magnificent look into the traditions of Pakistan. NFAK's song is one of his best. This is followed by Senegalese superstar Baaba Maal performing the Call to Prayer, which is an integral part of Islam. I strongly recommend you understand and respect that when listening to this track. Returning to South Asia, we are treated to a lively, upbeat Indian number from Shankar and the Epedemics. Following this is a beautiful, ephemeral flute song entitled "Ulvi", performed by Kudsi Erguner, one of Turkey's greatest musicians. Hossam Ramzey, gives a lively Egyptian Raks Sharki number entitled "Fellahi" (farmer). I was very impressed with this one. It gives a view of Ramzey at his best. Next is a sample of traditional Egyptian Arab music. Then we are treated to a celebratory bar song from traditional Ethiopian musicians. Those unfamilar with Ethiopian music will be pleasantly surprised by this. Then we get a Perso-Indian performance by Mahmou Tabrizi Zadeh. This song fascinates me to no end. After that is another historic ethnic recording, this time from a Moroccan wedding celebration. As the NFAK song above showed, wedding celebrations are perhaps the greatest opportunities to hear music in Islamic cultures, so this shouldn't be too surprising. Next is a number by Abdul Aziz el-Sayed, which was recorded for the brothel scene, but was used for the Lazarus scene instead. And then we get a lively number from the African band Fatala, with lively percussion and vocals. This song is lively and uniquely West African, but fits in very well with the other selections. Next is the song from Nass el-Ghiwane (an excellent Moroccan group) which wound up being used for the brothel scene in the movie. Following closely is a performance by the Egyptian Gypsy group, Musicians of the Nile. And finally, the CD closes with a traditional Armenian ney flute performance, which I found both haunting and ephemeral. Its easily one of my favorite songs on the CD.

Overall, this is an excellent and diverse CD. The music on here, which saw use in "The Last Temptation of Christ" is wonderful and inspirational, whether from Christian (such as Ethiopian or Armenian) or Muslim (such as Pakistani or Egyptian) sources. It is beautiful and wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The depths of 'Passion' 12 Oct 2009
By Carl Richard Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Sources" explores the roots of Peter Gabriel's "Passion" from the movie "The Last Temptation of Christ". Fascinating look at the diverse world musical influences behind one of the most moving soundtracks of all time. Each of the tracks on this album provides a hint of what inspired the transcendent masterpiece found on "Passion".

A very rare ethnic collection of music jewels. Main highlight is Baaba's Maal call to prayer,a song that is very difficult to find anywhere else .

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting And Enjoyable Even If You Do Not Understand The Words 30 Dec 2013
By Stephen Mann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Someone who knew of my liking for the work of Peter Gabriel gave me the Passion soundtrack album but did not listen to it for years as I have no interest in or liking of the film the music was written for, finally gaining an appreciation for it in its own right when I built some new Soundtracks To Work By playlists.

I also enjoyed immensely the Middle Eastern stuff on Big Blue Ball even though I do not have even one word of the various languages in which the songs are sung in my vocabulary.

So it was inevitable that I would at least listen to this album, and I bought it last week. It is packed full of Middle Eastern original pieces of various provenance, all of them exotic and evocative soundscapes.

There is little point in my describing each track since I don't understand the language(s) in use. Read Zekeriyah's review for that. I'll just say that it is what I expected.

I like the album and will probably come to love it in the fullness of time. If you enjoy the sort of music and instrumentation used on Passion, or if you've enjoyed the sorts of music you hear as "local color" on any movie that takes place in the Middle East this will probably float your boat.
