"This CD was somewhat done in the way that record companies used to release soundtracks; most of it is instrumental music played throughout the movie instead of cameo featured hits by artists who were too lazy to make a record that year. It's nice music; the movie was spectacular. There are two very nice songs on this CD, both sung by Luz Casal. One is a very sensual Un Ano De Amor (A Year of Love). The other is also very sultry, Piensa En Mi (Think of Me). They pretty much make the CD a worthwhile buy. If you like lounge music with a Spanish flare then you will like these songs. There is also a funny little euro disco instrumental that is kind of cool."
Fair for both Almodovar and Sakamoto

"Liked the film. ALmodovar was experimenting with styled-up Douglas Sirk melodrama, and Marisa Paredes is always great to watch. The score served the film well, but becomes a bit redundant on record. One main theme gets played over and over in many treatments long and short. It's a sad, mournful piece, quite pretty, but I wish Sakamoto had developed some additional themes for the other characters. The pop cuts by Spanish singers are great, especially "Un Ano de Amor" which had Miguel Bose in drag in the film singing a 60s-styled love-anthem that is quite catchy . Not Almodovar's best film by a long shot, though, and certainly not Sakamoto's best outing as a film composer."
