VARIOUS ARTISTS The Sopranos (1999 UK 14-track CD album featuring music taken from the classic HBO series including tracks by Frank Sinatra Bob Dylan Little Steven Cream Bruce Springsteen Bo Diddley Elvis Costello & The Attractions Eurythmics and more complete with a fold-out picture sleeve inlay)
HBO's Mafia masterpiece The Sopranos is a remarkable television series--it's witty, creative, and truly unique. The same praises could be sung for a show's soundtrack, an odd but fun mix of beats, classic rock, and--what else?--Mafia-staple Sinatra. Alabama 3's theme "Woke Up This Morning (Chosen One Mix)" gets things off to a lively start, as does bluesman R.L. Burnside's "It's Bad You Know" (from his Come On In remix album). Bob Dylan's "Gotta Serve Somebody" (from his Slow Train Coming album), Bruce Springsteen's "State Trooper", and Elvis Costello's "Complicated Shadows" aren't tracks you'll hear on the local classic rock station, but they work perfectly here. And when was the last time you heard both Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul and Nick Lowe on TV? In short, a great, eclectic collection. --Jason Verlinde

No home should be without this.... Or should I send the boys round!!!!!!
What we have as the result of their work is a rag-tag band of different styles of music which segue into each other with no warning. Although the soundtrack keeps coming apart at the seams in terms of playing order, it is impossible not to sit back and ignore the fact that what you are listening to is perfect in tone to a slice of New Jersey Mafia life.
The first half of the CD is so pitch-perfect that you can forgive the inclusion of Los Lobos and Wyclef Jean which mar an otherwise equal second half.
To kick off with A3's "Woke Up This Morning" and journey through Mafia stalwart/favourite Frank Sinatra, an eclectic Bob Dylan and soulful Nick Lowe before finishing on a soft and poignant note with The Eurythmics is a very rewarding listen. Whether it will be to everyone's taste will be another matter. If not, I think we need Tony, Pussy and Spider to do a little persuading.....
Not all of the great music used in it's first season makes the cut but it's fun to locate where the songs on the soundtrack are used in the series. R.L. Burnside- 'It's bad you know' is used after a surprise revenge scene on a boat while Bruce Springsteen's 'State Trooper' is the closing theme of the first season finale.
Frank Sinatra 'It was a very good Year' is used as the Second Season Opener so if you've only seen the first season your not aware of how it's used. Overall the show makes you love much of this soundtrack and I'm a big beleiver in reliving the moment.
This soundtrack is not as good as Peppers and Eggs.
