Bono chose to collaborate with a woefully underappreciated Gavin Friday for the soundtrack to this Neil Jordan film, with stunning results. The title track and "Billy Boola" predate the electronic movement in the states by a few years, but manages to sound vital and contemporary by any standards. Herein are the seeds of what U2 would try to reap on their Pop album. The other important original work is Sinead O'Connor's "You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart," written by Bono and Friday. It is one of O'Connor's most satisfying deliveries, and benefits, as does "Billy Boola," from the incomparable Jah Wobble on bass. --Scott Wilson

"'You Made Me the Thief...' was the reason I bought this soundtrack (besides loving the movie), and I have since come to enjoy the other tracks as well. Bono is great on the title track. (Bono on anything is good.) I also dig the theme. This soundtrack is eclectic, yet well blended in its genres of pop, hard rock, classical and alternative."
One of the Best Soundtracks!! Simply brilliant!

"The movie is so moving, and with any good movie, the soundtrack plays an important role in the overall success. It underscores the mood the visual is saying and this is a prime example of a mix of old, new and very old, talent and choices that work well to give this film such power and impact.Bono's dark and driving title cut, is vital, powerful and full of rage, simply perfect to kick off a move full of energy and rage. The soundtrack smartly moves then to using older cuts, like the old Irish pub fav Whiskey in the Jar, the marvellous Ray Davies' poke at English Carnaby era Dedicated Follower of Fashion, and Hendrix's Voodoo Child and Is this Love by Bob Marley. Finishing up with Sinead O' Connor poignant and haunting You Made Me The Thief of Your Heart....well it just does not get any better than this!"
It complements the movie, and life well.

"Overall a great soundtrack with a bit of most everything. No need to comment on the "Hendrix" and "Bob Marley" songs, they're both classics. The "Kinks" song is probably recognizable to most, and sounds like early "Who" for those that don't know it. "Whiskey In The Jar" is another great one, and recently covered by "Metallica" for those wondering. And the instumentals are all very nice, and add vibe from the film throughout the cd. But the best things here are the opener and closer. The song "In The Name Of The Father" is a great one from "Bono" and "Gavin Friday", and almost as good as "You Made Me The Thief Of Your Heart", sung beautifully by "Sinead O'Connor". It's a very emotional ending, to a wonderful soundtrack, from a great movie."
