Some good songs but the album doesn't hold up for me as a consistent music experience... I'd rather listen to the individual albums that these songs come from.

Darn good CD, with some awesome finds

"Unlike many soundtracks, which rely on heavily pimped singles and bands everyone knows and loves in order to make back money for a movie that may or may not be a hit, the Sopranos was already a hit when the soundtrack was compiled. So instead of hits by today's flavor of the months, we get a great compilation of largely funky and bluesy, really fun to listen to cuts. Of special greatness is A3's "Woke up this Morning" (A3 also did the best track on the "Life Less Ordinary Soundtrack" a great funky paen to mournful country called "Peace in the Valley"). Just about everything else on the album is really great. Frank Sinatra's "It was a Very Good Year" seems a bit out of place with the energetic, generally rhythm-based quality of the rest of the album (but hey, it's Sinatra, right?). The one song that really doesn't work is the one song I thought never worked on the show: Nick Lowe's "The Beast in Me". It's just a boring lament that made me wish for more the more skilled self-depreciation of Tom Waits. The new Eurythmics track is also an unexpected treat. Pick up this great album today."
This baby is almost as good as the show

"I, a 40 year old woman, a total girly girl, walk around the streets of New York City with my DiscMan on and I AM Tony Soprano. I am tough, nobody messes with me. It's the ideal soundtrack for life. With the one exception of the Annie Lennox song on the last track, every track on this CD is a gem, pure and simple. While I prefer A-3's original "Woke up this morning" off their Exile album, but I think the remix is somewhat more fitting to this collection. Frank singing When I Was Seventeen, Bruce with Mr. State Trooper, Bo Diddly's I'm A Man. You just can't beat this thing. I gave almost everyone I know this CD as their Christmas present. I think the fact that only one person didn't like it says an awful lot. Even if you've never seen the show, you really NEED to buy this. Then you too can walk the city lost in a world of tough guys and savvy chicks. You'll get that bop to your walk, the attitude. You will, if only for once in your life, be so cool it hurts."
