4.0 out of 5 stars soundtrack for a film in your own head ?, 21 Dec. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cosmos (Audio CD)
having just watched the film "Sunshine " by Danny Boyle,i thought "that music sounds familiar"!
in fact the film soundtrack is by the Underworld best known for that horrible drivel "born slippy" lager,lager you know it from trainspotting (see the connection already eh ?),anyway back to my point,i researched this and found out that due to legalities you cannot buy the soundtrack from sunshine(other than as an itune download- no good if you don,t have an ipod or you prefer a better quality than the best itunes download rate which is currently 190kbps for itunes plus i think).
so , my point here is that for all those people out there who are trying to find the film music then this album is worth a try.
o.k. it,s not the soundtrack but if you play it on your hifi at the same time as the film i bet the mood you create is the same if not better.
yes , i also agree with the other chap ,i would have given 5 *s were it not for the rather rick wakemanly (sic) organ blasts in the final track.
but as for the other reviewer giving 1 star,who says he likes ambient music,the whole point of ambience is that it has no melody and very lttle if no musicality in the traditional sense - thats just it.
i have a good hifi;Naim cd5 into arcam preamp into 2 biwired arcam a90,s one for each B & W 730 loudspeaker and Rega p7 deck(not relevant to this item i know)and if turned up a little you can hear sub bass frequencies aplenty.also there are plenty of organic soundsources thats what Murcof uses,voilin,piano,cello etc etc as well as electronic manipulation and sampling - l know because thats what i do as well !
so,try listening again.maybe its just not your cup of tea,there is NO point in trying to change someones opinion if they just do not get something.i would not want to try to do that anyway.you have to come to your own conclusion don,t you otherwise its akin to a nanny state (!?!)slight cough there.
so, i would say to people give this a listen,you may like it and go on to buy all the other works( personally i like the versaille sessions best of all but again some say its not true murcof well its got his name on the cover - say no more )
love and peace

Thank you for your opinion.
As for punctuation errors I missed capitalisation sure because I can only type with one finger as I have Parkinsons disease so oh so sorry if my standards don't match yours !
As for giving details of my own hifi I was not boasting only giving reference so one could tell on what equipment I was listening on.
Love and peace to you.
Ps We all can't be a perfect as you however hard we try.
