Sopranos Vol. 2 Peppers & Eggs [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
For the second installment of music from his smash HBO show, The Sopranos creator David Chase has assembled a two-disc compilation that mixes classic rock nuggets such as Van Morrison's "Gloria" with eclectic fare such as Madreblu's lush "Certamente," an electro-pop tune with vocals that suggest an Italian Dido. The soundtrack opens with a fascinating cross-pollination of Henry Mancini's noir-ish instrumental "Peter Gunn" theme and the Police's stalker ode "Every Breath You Take," and throughout the album Chase adeptly mixes in allusions to organized-crime icons -- both directly via dialogue from the series and indirectly through the selection of songs. Among the obvious instances are Cake's rumbling tribute to ...

For the second installment of music from his smash HBO show, The Sopranos creator David Chase has assembled a two-disc compilation that mixes classic rock nuggets such as Van Morrison's "Gloria" with eclectic fare such as Madreblu's lush "Certamente," an electro-pop tune with vocals that suggest an Italian Dido. The soundtrack opens with a fascinating cross-pollination of Henry Mancini's noir-ish instrumental "Peter Gunn" theme and the Police's stalker ode "Every Breath You Take," and throughout the album Chase adeptly mixes in allusions to organized-crime icons -- both directly via dialogue from the series and indirectly through the selection of songs. Among the obvious instances are Cake's rumbling tribute to Frank "Chairman of the Board" Sinatra; Ol' Blue Eyes himself delivering the bossa nova-flavored "Baubles, Bangles and Beads"; and Bob Dylan lightly swinging through Dean Martin's "Return to Me." Even cast members Steven Van Zandt the guitarist with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and Dominic Chianese join this genre-busting mix: Little Steven and his band, the Lost Boys, contribute the Boss-like rocker "Affection," while Chianese a.k.a. Uncle Junior croons and whistles his way through the Italian folk song "Core'ngrato." Rounded out by the moody pop of Tindersticks, the deep soul of Otis Redding, the operatic stylings of Cecilia Bartoli, and the country twang of Kasey Chambers, Peppers & Eggs is a musical offer you can't refuse.

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
At the end of each episode of The Sopranos, a different song plays under the credits. Sometimes the song has been featured elsewhere in the episode, sometimes it is first heard at the end. What the songs have in common is that none of them are mentioned in the credits. Viewers may recognize the familiar ones, a song by Otis Redding, say, or Them's "Gloria." But many are unusual even if the artists are well known, and others are hard to identify. Some, in fact, are special to the series. Now, puzzled and intrigued viewers can be satisfied by this two-CD set, the second collection of music from The Sopranos, which ranges from opera singer Cecilia Bartoli performing a Vivaldi aria to Bob Dylan turning in a shambling, newly recorded version of the old Dean Martin hit "Return to Me," complete with a verse in Italian. As was true of the first album, this one is full of artists like Dylan who rarely agree to let their material be licensed, among them the Rolling Stones and the estate of Frank Sinatra. Some of the songs bear at least a glancing relationship to the subject of the series, such as the Kinks' "Living on a Thin Line" and the remarkable opening track, a medley of the Police's "Every Breath You Take" and Henry Mancini's "Theme From Peter Gunn." Others are just terrific, or at least ear-catching works. The moral contradictions of the series are exemplified by the segue from Pigeonhead's "Battle Flag" that makes prominent use of a 13-letter word that helps earn the album a parental advisory sticker, to the Campbell Brothers with Katie Jackson's "I've Got a Feeling," a gospel number. As on the series, somehow it all holds together without anybody getting hurt. Most of the time, that is.

    Sopranos nothing, check this out...

    I have to tell you, I normally don't dig S&M based bands, but Rump Whip are just awesome. Their new single, featured on ''Rump Whip Vol. 2 - Sausage and Cucumber,'' really makes pain seem like something I want to try out. A friend turned me onto them while we got bored with the Sopranos season finale, and I have to say, when he strapped that ball to my mouth and turned on this disc I was hooked.
