Without a doubt, the best Original Score - soundtrack album I've ever bought. No vocals, just ambient and consistent theme throughout, with the exception of the last track (too bad about that). Ambient mellow Jazz, reminds me of some tracks from Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me - also a must-have CD. The Iberian groove is certainly there, a loner on the road, intersperced with orchestral (strings) riffs that are gigantic. Melancholic, moody and intelligent stuff here. Night-time listening, best on a great sound system.

I had been waiting years for this CD to finally be made available.
I intially only wanted it for the very last song - Tajabone but I have definitely enjoyed all the movements and scores on the CD .
It is well worth the wait.

The music on this CD is so quintessientially Spanish yet it is totally unlike anything I have ever heard before. I loved the music when I watched the film and it has remained one of my favourite CDs since, that is almost 7 years now!

The secrets in a mother's heart 26 Jun 2000
By Ignacio Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
All about my mother is one of the best 1999 films. And so it's this soundtrack. Alberto Iglesias did a marvellous job turning into music the emotions of the film. The dramatic songs in this album certainly evoke a sense of longing present in the movie. Every one who loved this movie - the deepest, honest and maturest in Almodovar's career - must buy this CD.

Simply Wonderful MUSIC 24 Mar 2004
By ALEX - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Todo sobre mi madre", is the perfect complement for the movie with the same name. Alberto Iglesias (Spain 1955) manages him self to create a superb Soundtrack that made us - all the ones that enjoyed the movie first than the audio CD - love and treasure this MUSIC. The perfect mix between the music and the movie is proven all over the film, since the beginning. The scene when the main character is going back to Barcelona, when the wise chosen "Ismael Lo" (Africa 1960) performs his Tajabone, was a breath taking moment for everyone at the movie theatre... we could hear the wows! coming out everyone's mouth, after the camera (and the music) flies over Barcelona and later on the typical architecture of the city. The rest of the music is just a very nice complement to the drama in the movie, but acts like another character too. Without this wonderful music we will have an empty movie. I strongly suggest this CD to any "Todo sobre mi madre" lover and/or an Iglesias (Talk to her, The red squirrel, Lovers of the artic circle, ...) followers...

Prismatic, haunting, wholly unified listening experience. 15 Feb 2000
By L. S. Slaughter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Queston 1: Why doesn't AMAZON have this cross-referenced as ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER for American consumers? Anyway, not familiar with Iglesias until I saw the stirring ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER by Maestro Almodovar, so I ran out and hunted this down the day after. Next to "Talented Mr. .Ripley" (also an incredible score by Gabriel Yared), this stands as one of the best produced original scores of the year. Moreover, Iglesias' shimmering original cues are seamlessly integrated with two cuts by Argentinian Dino Saluzzi's avant-jazz bandeon, and Ismael Lo's sweet, brief vocal. This CD is perfect for reflective listening, driving through night streets, and, yes, timorous, melancholy lovemaking on a rainy afternoon, and it will weather any criticism from soundtrack purists. At once pretty and intelligent, and never saccharine. While the film represents an apex for Almodovar's maturing talent, this CD rates as his most unified soundtrack, aside from, maybe, the much more raucous KIKA. It's definitely worlds away from the arch-emotion and schizophrenia of TOCANES LOJANES (High Heels) which had R. Sakamoto repeating some very sad themes over and over with little or no development or variation. In any event, one could almost describe this CD as Ambient. It sort of floats in space and rejects being pinned down into cues or songs, and has been carefully sequenced to create a total listening experience. Pedro's fine hand is all over this, but Iglesias is a talent to watch out for.

Fantástico 25 Oct 2002
By "jumsmuj2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am a young male from New Jersey. I grew up entirely in English, and only recently have I found myself deeply engrossed in my Castilian studies of Spanish. I really owe it all to Todo Sobre Mi Madre. An absolutely, incredible film which takes you on a journey you will never forget, into the mind of its main protagonist, Manuela. On the emotional roller coaster that is Manuela's life we are accompanied by some of the most entrancing music I have ever heard. The simple meoldic hooks on the piano, the complex music of the violin, and the sound of Spain in the subtle guitar. The whole movie is an absolute feast for the senses, and the music is no exception. This soundtrack is wonderful, and I suggest it for all.

More than a perfect musical framework 21 May 2003
By Manny Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not many times does a score or a soundtrack to a movie provide such an excellent framework to the movie it's meant to accompany. This work by long-time Pedro Almodovar collaborator, Alberto Iglesias, does just that and it is able to stand by itself as well. We own both the movie and the soundtrack, and watching one or listening to the other, years after the original release, still have a fresh feel. Both works, Almodovar's and Iglesia's, are able to stand the test of time, and Alberto Iglesia's works have a characteristic that allows you to almost "see" the song: they are packed with Spanish passion that you can feel whether you're sensitive about music or not. All in all, this soundtrack is one my alltime favorites. I highly recommend it.
