I really enjoy Coldplay from pre-Viva la Vida because I grew up listening to them before they were actually popular. This is a great album to listen to. Chris Martin has his calming voice as usual, and the song are great. My absolute favorite songs are "Clocks" and "A whisper" but I liked listening to the entire album from beginning to end. Yes, I would recommend this album to everyone.
I didn't like this album as much as "Born to Die." I also wished that this was the album that included some bonus songs because I was really looking forward to listening to "Lolita." I guess I have to look for the Born to Die edition of Paradise.
The soundtrack to Tarantino's movies are kind of...strange, but they fit with the movie. I guess that's not a surprise, but putting the music together on a CD can be a bit strange. It doesn't flow like a normal soundtrack, but I mean...it's Quentin Tarantino. You get a mix of just about everything on this album including sound effects. Who knew? Well, if you want a reminder of great this movie is, go ahead and get the soundtrack. Get it. I was really glad that "Don't let me be misunderstood" was on the disk because I really like that fight scene and the music went well with the boss battle. 3.5/5.
Some songs are good, some aren't. I wish I could say that I liked the music choices but I didn't, sorry to say.
I didn't find this score as capativating as some of Hans Zimmer's other scores but it was still a good listen. The most popular track is "Chevaliers de Sangreal" as it's heard on other movie trailers. My favorite track happens to be "Kyrie for the Magdalene" because of its fragile voices. It's a beautiful track really. I enjoy listening to it often because it's such a peaceful choral piece.
