Brazil [Silver Screen Edition 2006]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
The soundtrack to Brazil would probably be better known if more Kate Bush fans heard her rendition of the "title song," such as it is, as the second track of the album. The song, drawn from the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here, is only a tiny part of the sound collage that makes up most of the CD, a mix of spoken word quotes from the movie interspersed with instrumental music, some in period style and some bold, expressive orchestral pieces, all written by Michael Kamen.
