Synopsis

Amazon.com
Elliot Goldenthal's score perfectly captures the mood of the film, from the opening notes of "Libera Me" to the reprise of "Born to Darkness" at the end. He builds on a few basic themes, adding excitement to the mix with the high-intensity "Louis' Revenge" and "Claudia's Allegro Agitato." As some of the track titles suggest, Goldenthal uses classical themes and techniques to compose his music, which works nicely. So well, in fact, that the Guns n Roses' rendition of "Sympathy for the Devil," appropriate as it was in the film, sounds like an afterthought here. The soundtrack is a little too repetitive to hold up well to repeated listens, but it's a fine effort overall, and one that holds true both to the film and to the Anne Rice novel on which it was based. --Genevieve Williams

Pathos and Romantic

"I found this CD very dark. Duh! But every time I listen to it, it takes me to a different world. The first song, Libera Me is soooo beautiful. You can actually feel the sadness and whole darkness of it. The reason I even wacthed the movie in the first place was because of the music. Although, the very last song kills the rest of it. When I'm listening to the whole CD and when I come to the end, the Guns N' Roses song, kills the whole atmosphere.That is my only complaint about this CD. Everything else is Perfect!!!"
Haunting Excellence

"This score... inappropriately called a soundtrack is wonderful. It captures the ambiance and quiet evil of the film and the character of Lestat was well as Louis' struggle to undo what he has become. Haunting is a word I would choose to describe this work best, because that is exactly what it is. Try turning out the lights and listening to this CD, and you will know what I mean."

"Goldenthal's music is superb and very fitting in capturing the mood of the movie, it also stands well by itself on this excellent soundtrack. The song 'Libera Me'is especially haunting. I was however, distressed to note that the many wonderful classical songs from the movie were not included; especially the Hadyn sonata that Lestat plays. Perhaps these songs would have not fit on this CD...but it is not complete without them."
