Patricia Arquette stars in this good vs. evil religious mystery thriller while Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan and Mike Garson score the movie's incidental music to create a perpetual sense of unease. The soundtrack begins with several conventional pop songs. Remy Zero's "Gramarye" is a track from their album that features a complex mix of ambient sea sounds and thick piano notes. Everyone's favorite merry pranksters Chumbawamba add a Stigmatic mix of "Mary Mary" that's as kinetic and close to the dance floor as politicos get. David Bowie charges up for "The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell," a robotic piece of machine rock. Sinead O'Connor rides the world beat groove with Afro Celt Sound System for "Release." Natalie Imbruglia delivers the Billy Corgan and Mike Garson signature track "Identify." The second half is instrumental music that succeeds as ambient tone poems, often featuring several tracks and rhythms rolled into one. --Rob O'Connor

Soundtrack is unbelievable If you like Billy Corgan from Smashing Pumpkins than I highly recommend it and It's his producing and composing. Not his constipated whiney I got to take a dump voice is nowhere on it thank god. I like his producing but not his vox he should just stick to producing!
Great Songs Great Score

"When i first decided to buy this soundtrack i didn't remember much from the movie Songs i mean even the score. So i bought it one saturday night and i thought great i probably won't like this cd at all. But it turns out that i love this cd. I must have listened to it at least 5 all the way through. The song collection is awesome it starts out with Mary Mary sung by Chumbawamba which is a very catchy song. the best song on here is Release sung by Sinead O'Connor and the Afro Celt Sound machine which has a celtic theme to it but has a faster pace to it. The it is Billy Corgan's And Mike garson's signature track Identify sung by Natalie Imbruglia. Now to the score which is composed by Billy Corgan himself. The score has alot of different themes to reflect Patricia Arquette's condition for th more tender moments he uses piano very effectively combined with a small orchestra. It uses more electronics and Synth music but it never gets over bearing it is a pleasure to listen to and i hope that more people buy it."

"Stigmata was one great movie, it was casted well, directed stunningly and dealed with a deep subject with due credit. It is one of the best movies I have seen related to the subject of the church and good vs evil. Whilst browsing my favourite DVD/CD shop I came across the movie sountrack and decided to opt to buy it and am glad I did.
Contrary to several people's complaints that the music from the movie was not on the sountrack, that is not correct, watching the movie before listening to the soundtrack, I did pick up 95% of the songs and the music sounds. What is most exciting about this album is that it incorporates music songs as well as music sounds that were played throughout the movie. Nearly all the tracks were supreme and yet at the end I did want to play it again. The Reflect pieces throughout the music tracks were mixed to create a mood of reflection within the innerself.
Well done to the movie and the soundtrack. What a masterful masterpiece."
