5.0 out of 5 stars soothing music 31 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have watched this film so many times, and recently found myself humming the tunes and wishing I had the soundtrack - so onto Amazon and quick purchase. It arrived almost by return and in excellent codition (I always go for a 2nd hand if one is rated excellent condition). Very happy and hours of listening ahead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gardener revisited 1 Nov 2013
Format:MP3 Download
Saw the film years ago and loved it visually. Great story. I somehow missed the music. It was on tv playing in the background this week, it was superb. The music stands alone as atmospheric and enjoyable. Downloaded the album. Great choice. You don't have to be a fan of African music to find this enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the amazing music? 25 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's ok.
It's nice.
Pleasant enough.
But if you're looking for that gorgeous, lush, exciting music from the trailer for the film, don't buy this (cos it isn't on there!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 27 Mar 2006
By Jennifer Cassone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Some soundtracks I hear in films sound worthy of the purchase once I leave the theater, yet when I get the cd home I think to myself "Come on! What a waste". Not so with this one...the music is just as moving in my car or on my Ipod as it was in the theater.

The Constant Gardener was a truly amazing film, and Alberto Iglesias certainly had a challenge in matching such a diverse and gorgeous work with music that could be equally powerful. Iglesias rose to that challenge and delivers a true work of art. An added bonus in this soundtrack are two songs by Ayub Ogada. If anyone is looking for some music that's different and beautiful, he is the answer.

The only weird thing on this soundtrack is that the songs don't appear in the order they did during the film. It works out however, since they flow perfectly on the cd together.

5.0 out of 5 stars WoW! 27 Sep 2005
By Randy Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack is in turn joyous, haunting, boisterous, and sad. The movie is a tour de force, and the soundtrack is too! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Alberto Iglesias does it again! 8 May 2006
By Manny Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For those who have followed the musical production of Spanish-born Alberto Iglesias, you will be surprised with his work the score he did for the film "The Constant Gardener". Famous for scoring the five most recent movies by Pedro Almodovar, Iglesias reinvented the style that made him famous, blending in sounds and instruments from Africa. The result is a soundtrack that ranks alongside 2005's great soundtracks, which made last year one of the most prolific ones for movie music.

"The Constant Gardener" is a solid body of music that serves as a great place from which director Fernando Meirelles (City of God) can launch the visual concepts that make this one of the best movies in recent times. Along with the work of Alberto Iglesias, you can spot the voice and strings of Ayub Ogaba contributing the the uplifting musical mix. Overall, this is a soundtrack not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Graspy and quite dramatic 7 July 2006
By Julio Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Spanish composer Alberto Iglesias has created the music for several movies by Pedro Almodovar, being the latest ones for "La Mala Educación" and "Volver". He's always been succesful with Almodovar and now he gives the musical background for a foreign movie. Once again, he succeeds in this most fascinating score by creating the right atmosphere to the drama in the movie. The interesting thing is that the music has the same dramatic power even if you're not watching the movie. Some themes are magnificent, such as "Tessa's Death" which opens the album. I would recommend this CD to:

1. Alberto Iglesias'admirers.

2. Audience who saw the movie and enjoyed it.

3. Listeners who enjoy a well-crafted movie score, intelligently executed and brilliantly produced.

4. Refined soundtrack collectors.

5. Followers of New Age music.

I wouldn't recommend it to:

1. Rap admirers.

2. Hard-rock fans.

3. Spectators who go to the cinema and believe that the only thing there's in to see (and listen) in a picture is sex, blood and violence.
