This is an AWESOME soundtrack if you like mellow music that you can chill out to. There are only 2 or 3 tracks that have vocals, the rest are all Clapton grooving out. It's great to put on to go to sleep, or go to bed to. It's got a bluesy vibe but isn't over the top. So good I won't swap mine and have purchased it more than once when my original got damaged. Hope that helps!!

A Score By Clapton
Thomas Magnum | NJ, USA | 07/27/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Eric Clapton had never provided the score to a film, but he finally jumped into the film area with the soundtrack to Rush. The movie chronicles the tale of two undercover narcotic offices who in the course of their jobs become heroin addicts themselves. The album is made up of mostly instrumentals that has a dark and mellow nature that underscores the decent into drug addicted hell the two cops spiral into. Mr. Clapton himself was facing tragedy as he was recording the album, his four year old son Conner, was killed when he accidentally fell out of a window. To memorialize his son, he wrote and recorded one of most haunting and elegant songs ever written about the loss of loved one, "Tears In Heaven". The song would go on to bigger fame in it's Unplugged version, but the studio version is equally beautiful and worth buying the album for alone."
Clapton is God!

"Clapton is God! That was all I could say after listening to this. I mean his playing here is just down right amazing as always, but I wasnt expecting much when I listend to this, I just thought it was gonna be 'Tears In Heaven' and thats it. Boy, was I wrong or what? This is a mostly instumental album, except for the last three songs. But it is never boring, and it will never-not amaze you. Clapton plays with such emotion, I havent heard Clapton play with this much emotion since Derek And The Dominos were together 30 years ago. Claptons voice sounds great here. Now on to 'Tears In Heaven' the acoustic song. This is without a doubt the best song on the album in in the top 5 Clapton songs of all time! Its about him losing his kid who fell from like a 2 story window, so there is a lot of emotion behind it. I feel a close attraction to this song because around the time this came out my older sister had died, and my mom loved Clapton so she connected with this song and it makes me and her both stop and think every time we here it. This is a five star album any way you look at it!"
