I also have (and adore) his contributions to Passion (Last Temptation of Christ) and Long Walk Home (Rabbit Proof Fence), but this CD continues to blow me away even more.
Perhaps it's the fact that some of these tracks are effectively "instrumental" versions of some of Peter's finest early songs (San Jacinto was an incredible experience for me Live at the Sheffield Arena recently - epic and amazing stuff)
I think it's fair to say that not all of this CD will please everybody - we are talking about Peter Gabriel here after all. He really seems to thrive on challenging the listener - even if that means on occasion his fans (witness his most recent studio album "UP" for more on that! - a superb release, but it was a slow-burner for me ... but I got there in the end!)
Overall, Birdy is Peter's strongest soundtrack score in my humble opinion - and it's also his most varied in terms of style. At this price (especially for the remastered edition) it has to be worth a listen, doesn't it?
I have to say that I was delighted when I first listened to this album for the first time, which still continues with subsequent times I have played this album. There have been times when I have heard a number of tracks and wondered what it would be like if they were simply instrumental or some of the instruments were altered, as well as some of the production effects. Well this album does just that with further added experimentation that you would expect from Gabriel. However, please do not let the word "experimentation" put you off: Gabriel does experiment, but it is highly listenable, with his musical talent always bursting forward.
Unlike most soundtrack albums, this can be listened to as an album in its own right. It is very rewarding, it is an album that can be only described as "ambience". It is very relaxing and takes you on a journey. This may sound slightly clichéd, as most albums are journey carriers by some definition but this is just soothing and you can easily relax with it and let it take you on a mental journey. This has helped me with some self-therapy: by helping me delve into my mind. That is how powerful this album is. Please buy it. You will not be disappointed.
Containing elements from his previous Studio Album PG4 or Mask that have been re-worked such as Wallflower.
Highly Atmospheric, Haunting and Sad, and the film isn't bad either.
Very very good and highly recommended.

Sure, some of it may be classed as 'recycled material' but, if you're a Gabriel fan, you'll appreciate the emotion of this stuff.Published on 5 April 2014 by Mr. S Bailey
