Gangs of New York

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - L.D. Beghtol
The stirring soundtrack to Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York captures the Irish flavor of 1860s Manhattan with a mix of contemporary and traditional music that should please fans of the Chieftains and Angela's Ashes alike. Loosely based on Herbert Asbury's classic book, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Cameron Diaz in an epic revenge story set in Lower Manhattan's lawless Five Points district during the Civil War Draft Riots. The sweeping soundtrack, lovingly assembled by production virtuoso Hal Wilner, Scorsese, and Robbie Robertson of the Band, includes both fascinating archival recordings of traditional Irish classics -- such as "Unconstant ...

Barnes & Noble - L.D. Beghtol
The stirring soundtrack to Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York captures the Irish flavor of 1860s Manhattan with a mix of contemporary and traditional music that should please fans of the Chieftains and Angela's Ashes alike. Loosely based on Herbert Asbury's classic book, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Cameron Diaz in an epic revenge story set in Lower Manhattan's lawless Five Points district during the Civil War Draft Riots. The sweeping soundtrack, lovingly assembled by production virtuoso Hal Wilner, Scorsese, and Robbie Robertson of the Band, includes both fascinating archival recordings of traditional Irish classics -- such as "Unconstant Lover" and "New York Girls" -- and new tunes with an old-world sheen, most featuring banjos, jaunty tin whistles, fiddles, and celestial hammer dulcimers set against thrumming hand percussion. Academy Award–winning composer Howard Shore's poignant elegies, "Brooklyn Heights, 1-3," are the real treasures here, along with melodic jewels by Linda Thompson and Peter Gabriel, not to mention the brooding closing-credits number by U2, "The Hands That Built America."
All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Like T-Bone Burnett, Robbie Robertson is a lover and collector of music old and new. While Burnett's work on the hugely successful O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack shoveled in award after award, Robertson's equally impressive musical supervision for Martin Scorsese's 19th century epic Gangs of New York went largely unnoticed, despite the inclusion of U2's Oscar-nominated "Hands That Built America." This is a shame, as the 18 tracks compiled by Scorsese and Robertson -- chosen from a cache of hundreds -- are a smorgasbord of British folk, Civil War, and turn-of-the-century standards that act as a map for each of the film's bloodstained "points." Modern pieces such as the Afro-Celt Sound System's tribal pipe dirge "Dark Moon, High Tide" and Peter Gabriel's "Signal to Noise" fit seamlessly with folkier contributions from legends Linda Thompson and Finbar Furey. Composer Howard Shore -- already deep within "Middle Earth" -- captures the menace and cold beauty of pre-New York City with the same devastating impact that won him an Academy Award for his work on The Lord of the Rings, providing a brief respite from the machine gun staccato of Chinese-opera and fife-and-drum tunes. The song choices mirror the city's burgeoning multicultural explosion at its inception, offering careful listeners access to the "real underground," and letting them decide who's really in charge. Gangs of New York is a fascinating, informative piece of audio magic.

    Pathetic

    Stay away from this cd. The music on this cd gave me seizures it was so bad. Obviously a very quickly thrown together soundtrack. Save your money and get something else.
