Overview

In such films as Last Tango In Paris and The Last Emperor, director Bernardo Bertolucci has taken special care with the soundtrack music, resulting in albums that stood on their own. Stealing Beauty, on the other hand, is a "music from the motion picture" disc of 12 songs that range from Billie Holiday's "I'll Be Seeing You" to Stevie Wonder's "Superstition." The element that seems to bring the disparate tracks together is an overall low-key moodiness, whether John Lee Hooker or Portishead is performing. The draw for rock fans is liable to be Liz Phair's "Rocket Boy," though there are also some intriguing selections by Lori Carson and the Cocteau Twins, and it's nice to hear Sam Phillips' Beatlesque "I Need Love" again. Still, apart from the film, this remains a miscellaneous collection.

After watching Stealing Beauty I was excited to get the soundtrak. However upon receiving it I found that not all the songs of the movie were included in the CD. Of course Murphy's Law kicked in and the songs I really liked were no where to be found. Dissappointing.

This a super collection. Very emotional and mellow, very good relaxing sounds and voices. I highly recommend this. Soundtracks usually have the best collection of works and this one once again proves to be a STEAL.
