Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Based on Irish writer Roddy Doyle's novel and lovingly directed with admirable restraint by the sometimes bombastic Alan Parker, this quirky 1991 tribute to the enduring and universal power of American R&B took some cynical criticism for its reliance on Baby Boomer-era classics such as "Mustang Sally", "Take Me to the River", and "In the Midnight Hour". But that sword cuts two ways: by casting a motley crew of real musicians, including the guts 'n' gravel-voiced young vocalist Andrew Strong, Parker didn't have to do much coaxing to reveal the obvious respect and affection his players have for this music. The material may not be fresh, but the love with which it's played is timeless. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars addictive listening 21 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After watching the film, many times, felt compelled to purchase the cd, glad I did - brilliant listening, totally addictive, and with a unique sound of their own, have sinced copied it for the car. Tried to purchase Andrew Strong's debut cd but with no luck, still waiting

Format:Audio CD
Andrew Strong's powerful vocals combined with the soulful backup vocals are perfected by the great tight arrangements of these American Soul classics. The movie storyline is only fair but it's more than made up for by the incredible music created by this band and singers. The hardest working band in Dublin.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have 8 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
the wonderful soundtrack of the Commitments, vol 1+ vol 2 in a wonderful Deluxe edition and a fancy and respectable package. include 5 songs of Andrew strong.

i do not think there is a compliment that was not told on the wonderful cover of the songs (include Midnight Hour,Chain of Fools, At The Dark End Of The Street, Mustang Sally and more ) and about the strong voice of andrew strong.

but this is a wonderful item to keep.

2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music! Very poor mastering. 5 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First of all this review is not about the music, that is truly excellent. This is probably one of the best soundtracks ever, and almost definitely the best soul music soundtrack.

Also the CD sleeve/package is very nice.

The big problem in this edition is the audio, which is heavily compressed, resulting in excess of noise and listening fatigue. I'm 100% sure of this, since I made an analysis of the sound wave with Audacity. This is a clear example of loudness war (refer to [...] if you wish to know more about what "loudness war" means). Avoid this remastered deluxe edition, better the vinyl version (for sure) or probably the first CD edition of the album (since older CDs are usually less compressed than many newly remastered editions). Remastered is good if well done, but this is definitely not the case.

The Commitments are very good. I bought the CD for "Mustang Sally": the way they interpret the song is beautiful. I enjoyed listening to the other songs as well. Thank you for the music.
