This '90s update of the classic U.K. television series of the '60s was roundly criticized for its murky, convoluted plotting and quirky performance by Val Kilmer in the title role of Simon Templar. But its soundtrack--a typically market-driven collection of modern pop--is actually one of the better efforts of the '90s. Leaning heavily on electronica influences (Orbital's conservative rendering of Edwin Astley's TV theme, Moby's driving "Oil," The Chemical Brothers' "Setting Sun," and others), The Saint at least holds together as a cohesive musical statement, something many similar collections can't claim. Also includes songs by the Sneaker Pimps, Duran Duran, David Bowie, Everything But the Girl, and Duncan Sheik. --Jerry McCulley

"You know how sometimes a music can conjure up memories of a time in your life that is pleasant, or not so pleasant? That is what "The Saint" soundtrack and even movie does for me. I remember seeing the movie in 1997 - and the friends I saw the movie with. The club heads, the cars, and etc. This CD is real quality. I still love it today - so much so that I bought it a few times as the ones I had before got scratched - always around the Duncan Shiek track... This was out just when Sneaker Pimp's "Six Underground" was starting to get popular (before Ministry and every other mass "chill-out" compilation overplayed it), Duncan Sheik had released a feature cd maybe the year before that did very well in the US as did EBTG (Walking Wounded). But some of the hidden stand-outs that do spark up the good memories of when I saw this movie and when I lived in England - Underworld's Pearl's Girl, Polaroid Millenium's song and Daft Punk's "Funk". "Roses Fade" is also a cut that I really like with the guitar build-up in the beginning. I definitely recommend it. For me it is one of those special CD's that I cherish. Mind you some cuts I will pass through - but if anything it is because I had heard the songs too much in 1997-1998! (Fluke, David Bowie). Enjoy"

"Track #11 is what this soundtrack is all about!!
I can listen to this song over and over until I fall sleep and have my own weird dreams. But this soundtrack has a great collection of late 90's techno and fast tempo songs. It also has a great amount of the music that helps the movie along.
The last three songs are really what makes this a good album though.!! Loved them."
This is a great introduction to techno

"If your not sure what to buy when it comes to techno type music then this is a must have disc, this has some amazing music that you just can't ignore. Daft Punk - Da Funk is an incredible song which caused me to go and order a Daft Punk CD, the same thing happened with Orbital. I didn't think I'd even like the movie much less the soundtrack, I generally don't like soundtracks and have only bought two, the matrix and the crow, both awesome, the saint is right there with both of them and will definitely give you a good starting point for getting yourself into some techno music. This is definitely a platter you need to have."
