"Michael Gore's bouncy soundtrack gives the film a simultaneously nonserious and wistful subtext. At times, the soundtrack will resemble one of those perky 1950's business themes, but then in such tracks as "You're Going Back/Finale", mournful wind instruments underscore the sorrow of Albert Brook's character. Included is Barbra Streisand's rendition of "Something's Coming" from "West Side Story", which is somewhat distracting, but those of you who saw the film know that it describes Albert Brook's impending doom when he crashes into a bus. ("Around the corner, something big is coming! Come to me!")Extremely hard to find, as it was pulled from circulation fairly early, this is definitely a must-have for comedy buffs as well as soundtrack collectors."

"A score I have been searching for (in stores / online) for years. Finally I ordered a used copy online, and was I ever pleased. Michael Gore's bittersweet melodies and themes from Albert Brook's comedy bring back memories of watching this film as a child. A great score."
