4.0 out of 5 stars Mathematics is the language of nature 7 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you've already seen the film, then you will know what to expect from this CD, if not, read with interest.
From the first track onwards the listener is confronted with a selection of Drum and bass and progressive dance tracks that go from being almost soothing and calm (Gus Gus, 'Anthem') to just being outright rude (Orbital, 'P.E.T.R.O.L').
Clint Mansell did an amazing job when he composed the score to the almost unknown film, his own entries to the CD are most welcome, with the 'pi' tracks starting and ending the CD as is appropriate.
Quotes from the film are scattered around the CD, those unfamiliar with the fim will be stumped with the relevance, those who are may find themselves reminiscing back to when they first didn't understand what was going on in Darren Aranofsky's directorial debut.
I would strongly recomend this CD to anyone who's seen the film, or even people who are looking for a compilation with a bit more "guts" to it than, say, "Ibiza sunshine cheese chill-choons 7 2002".
To those who are not fans of dance music, then you may well find this just as unpalattable, which is hte only reason I do not give this title a full score of 5, being a democracy and all

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping! 11 July 1999
By Ilker Yucel (oyucel@annapolis.net) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"PI" was certainly one of the strangest films I had ever seen, and I am a fan of strange movies. I have seen all of David Lynch's movies, so when a friend told me that "PI" was like Lynch's "Eraserhead," that piqued my curiosity. I picked up a copy and thought "migraine headache instigated by intense lighting, complex evocative story, and excellent assembly all throughout." The movie was a harsh experience for me...so much that I watched it twice a day for a week just to sink it in.
What gripped me most besides the visuals was the music. For a film as eccentric as this, the soundtrack is just as erratic. Who would have thought that a deeply philosophical message could be conveyed through danceable ambient electronica? I certainly didn't, and I was very impressed.
Clint Masnell's music is some of the best score music I have ever heard for a film. The combination of songs by Massive Attack, Orbital, Aphex Twin, Roni Size...all giants in the field of modern electronic music. Their music just evokes the raw emotions of tension and insanity of the movie through a sheer beauty of sound. I'd go so far as to say this was a better soundtrack than that for "The Matrix." Definitely one of the finest assembled soundtrack albums of all time. Hear the madness, share in the mayhem, buy this soundtrack!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Electronica soundtrack you'll ever find. 23 July 2002
By Go Bulldogs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Insane electronic music is what i call it. The soundtrack is just as trippy as the film was. The Clint Mansell dialouge really takes you back to Pi with his ambitious saying, "there are patterns in everyday nature." Some tracks begin with a dialouge by the crazed character, then the music begins. By far the Aphex Twin track, "Bucephalus bouncing ball," is the most amazing. You can actually feel the vibrations coming out of your speakers. The whole track is the sound of a ball bouncing making rhythmic sounds. Its incredibly done. Other amazing acts include Massive Attack with their song, "Angel," taken from their Mezzanine album, the trip-hop group Gus Gus, and the electronic groups Autechre, Orbital and Roni Size Reprasent. The album should be listened to as a whole to get the full effect. You'll feel like your inside Max Cohen's head and about to explode. Its a great listen to in the dark, when your driving, and when your on your computer. Do yourself a favor and don't pass this up. It can change your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love/Hate Relationships 3 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really like this CD. It's the only electronic stuff I have ever been able to listen to. However, I know a lot of people with otherwise similar tastes who think of this as nothing more but electronic garbage. So, be careful before buying it, unless you know you already like this kind of stuff. Otherwise, borrow a copy first and listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dance compilation so far. 24 Jan 2003
By experimusicdotcom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Usually we are plagued with (espcially in Europe), one dimensional trance cheese beat excuses for an album. Anybody for Minstry of Sound Chilled Trance Ambient Loser Volume 24. Pi on the other hand is the best of the lot, even better than Coldcuts Journeys by DJ lp (which is highly recommended to the D'N'B heads among you).
What this album has is a combination of IDM (Aphex Twin), Semi-Ambient Soundscapes (Spacetime, Autechre), Beat-Beat Driving Chamber music (Oribital), Drum'n'Bass (Clint Mansell), World Dance (Third from the Sun)aswell as mega accomplished artists like Roni Size, David Holmes and Massive Attack.
I was very impressed by Clint Mansell's tracks. His performance on the more classical and trip-hoppy 'Requiem' Soundtrack was amazing, but his D'N'B was really good aswell. Track 7 is one of the albums best tracks. I urge all Pi lovers to watch Requiem and for the more embracing listener, i suggest the soundtrack as it shares just a few similarites.
Oribitals P.E.T.R.O.L is an absolutly devastating piece of bigbeat and the Roni Size remix is truly excellent. Massive Attacks 'Angel' sounds slightly boring next to it. Aphex's 'Bouncing Ball' is the only let down as it just sounds stupid. Autechre's effort isn't as engaging as the excellent Spacetime Continuum, with its deep bass and moody soundscapes.
All in all this the best (and darkest) electronic compilation lp out at the moment. Usually electronic music sounds to repetitive and processed to listen to while completely capitive (i.e. at night while half asleep), however this album is perfect for just that, and that it an acid test to show if music is really engaging or just for the background. The other place to listen to this is obviously while driving. Just make sure you don't crash!

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL electronic soundtrack; captures the essence of Pi. 14 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Blending elements of Clint Mansell's amazing score with a whose who of electronic music artists this album is a stand alone piece of work.
I saw the film (a must see) and ran out picked this up and it exceeded my expectations.
The selection of tracks including selections from Orbital, Autechre, Aphex Twin, Roni Size, Massive Attack, David Holmes, Gus Gus, Banco De Gaia, Spacetime Continuum, and Psilonaut? is truly well thought out.
I guess I'm a fan.
