A number of reviewers on Amazon's US site have taken this soundtrack to task for its omissions - and, yeah, I was really surprised and disappointed "99 Luftballons" wasn't included (although only 20-some seconds were used in the film perhaps the filmmakers didn't realise the indelible mark it would leave!).

Still, this being the age of the internet and MP3s it is very easy to make your own 'Complete' Watchmen soundtrack as several websites have already posted the movie's tracklisting.

First off, I bought both soundtracks, the Various Artists and the Tyler Bates Score edition (which, incidentally, is VERY good - has an intensity and darkness that the film's pop tunes overshadow). Also, the CDs come with terrific internal artwork - honestly, worth the price of buying them alone.

Currently on Amazon the Various Artists edition is about £9 and for a few extra £s you can pop over to Amazon's MP3 download section and create you own version of the soundtrack: I ripped the original CD into my computer then supplemented it with 6 others featured both in the movie and its trailers, all downloaded from Amazon's MP3 catalogue. I then burned them all onto one 80 minute CD (an * denotes the additional songs which I downloaded).

The only thing that matches the brillance of this movie is the excellence of its soundtrack. Each song perfectly matches the scenes of the film, and My Chemical Romance's Desolation Row is particularly worth a listen.

Only complaint is that the movie score, by Tyler Bates, is inexplicably sold as a seperate CD.

The soundtrack suits the mood of the film, MCR do a good stonking version of Bob Dylans "Desolation Row", balanced by its artists quiter moments such as the lovley sung "Unforgettable" by Nat King Cole, "Pirate Jenny" by Nina Samone and Leonard Cohan's "Hallejuya".

May not sell in the millions but at least it's an album not runied by needles excerpts from the lines read out by its actors that often ruin the overall feel and sound of an album thats meant to be a soundtrack to a hit film.

What a treat! Not only is the movie amazing, but this soundtrack album is amazing too. Featuring some classic blues (Nina Simone, Jimi Hendrix), decent rock (Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan) and much more besides. The choices are very unusual for a film like this but they do work remarkably well in the movie and they make a terrific album. Leonard Cohen's original HALLELUJAH is one of the highlights, and of course the fact that Hendrix is on a superhero album is uniquely symbolic! Even if you hate superhero movies but just love great music then this little compilation is a real stand-out collection.

This compilation from the fantastic film 'Watchmen' (see my review) captures all the notable original-artist music and adds an extra track from the associated disc 'Tales of the Black Freighter' :

Watchmen - Director's Cut [Blu-ray] [2009] [US Import]
Watchmen - Tales Of The Black Freighter [Blu-ray] [2009]

I think the only track 'missing' is '99 Red Balloons', used at the start of the "Diner Rendezvous" scene albeit for less than 30s.

Amazingly, this disc bucks the 'norm' for soundtrack compilations by having all the tracks in the same order as they appear in the film, save for the opening track (which actually appears last in the film !).

The reproduction quality is very good and listening this disc really does prompt recollections of the movie. By listening to it I also discovered that a long section, 'Pruit Igoe & Prophecies', which I thought was original score is actually by the Philip Glass Ensemble; it is the background music to the lengthy Dr Manhattan 'flashback' scene and is quite superb.

If you loved the film and thought the soundtrack was good then CD is a must !

I think this is a really good CD with some absolute stonking good tracks on it but if like your a really good rock fan then there are a few really bad ones. My advice to you is to not buy the CD i think that you should just pick and choose from the amazon mp3 store as you get all the ones that you want and don't have to get the others that you don't want.

The movie uses a lot of songs for it's soundtrack, however the scenes that involve original music (like when there's a monologging regarding the Comedian for example, or a few of the other Dr Manhattan scenes) are not including into this soundtrack. They are available on youtube however.
