"I bought this CD right after the final Kellie Martin episode because I had stopped watching ER until then since Season 5. I bought this cd to reminisce about the first few seasons, when Dr. Greene was so inexperienced and young and frightened, and when Susan Lewis was still there, and when Carter was just an intern. I love this cd so much because I can picture the episodes with the songs. My favorite would the the "See you next fall" Carter song, and also the Dr. Greene one from "Love's Labor Lost". This is a terrific cd, and I recommend it to all ER fans alike."
Great for ER fans, and people who just like dramatic music.

"OK...I have to lay my predjudicial cards out on the table. I'm not really an ER fan. Part of me still can't fathom why so many people set aside 10 P.M. on Thursday nights to watch a show filled with so many soap opera-style love stories, blood & guts scenes, and so many things that you don't expect to happen in a real ER, such as a post-football game brawl, since September 19, 1994. And yet my girlfriend can't get through a single Friday afternoon phone conversation without telling me what happened on the show last night. I know who everyone on the show is without my ever intending to.With that said, the reason I bought this CD is because I like the theme a lot. It's one of those themes that stick in your head after you hear it the first time. Two versions are included: the version we hear on TV every week, and a longer version that sounds like it was intended for the final credits, if we ever actually got to see the final credits roll.The songs by Marc Cohn and Duncan Sheik are terrific. The rest of the Martin Davitch score is fairly typical "ER" music: some fast-paced emergency operation scenes here, a few patient death scenes there, and love scenes way over there. I believe this is one of those CD's where the music has much more meaning if you're familiar with the episodes in which it appears, much like the "Miami Vice" soundtracks from the 1980's.But even if you're like me and don't make a habit of watching the show, you can still enjoy the score as a piece of the TV/film music genre: the Davitch pieces sound perfect for any kind of action/adventure movie."
Mellow piano and sharp orchestral type pieces - fantastic

"I love this CD. The piano tracks are excellent setting a wonderful mood. I especially love 'Goodbye Baby Susie', 'Doug and Carol' and 'The Hero'. Which are all the better if you are famillar with ER and the storylines the tunes relate to. The tracks with vocals have wonderful lyrics and the version of 'It came upon a midnight clear' is the best I've heard."
