CD Reviews

Do not buy this version, it's incomplete
James Luckard | Los Angeles, CA | 07/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brilliant music, but DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY on this shortened American version. It is the same as the original German version and is missing five tracks from the vastly superior second European release, which has the complete score. (Except for one track that was taken from Tiersen's Amelie)

Why they stupidly chose the incomplete album for the American CD is beyond me, but you can find the 23 track complete European version for only a few dollars more in most stores, or find it here at Amazon.

On the cover, instead of the photo of the mother and son, the good version that you want will have just the title, in white and black text, on a red background.

On that page here at Amazon you'll find my review of the album, which includes the correct film order of the music, if you want to reedit it, as I did."
Great filmscore
J. Carpenter | Montgomery, AL United States | 05/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you've not seen Good Bye Lenin! the score is still beautiful. The piano is very light and very touching, but then the score gets more complex with a woodwind quartet(?) and continues gaining complexity with the addition of strings to the quartet. It helps to know why the music is so sad in places, of course, you get a clue as to what's going on in the movie with track titles like "Mother will die." All in all, it's an amazing movie with an equally amazing filmscore."
Der DDR Nostalgia!
Uncle Borges | Via Lungomare 6 | 02/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great film, brilliant soundtrack, Deceptively simple in its complexity and highly, highly addictive. I listen to it as I punch the keys. Together with the Argentine's genius Santaollala's score for The Motorcycle Diaries, this is one of the strongest soundtracks in recent years.
Yann Tiersen, composer's name. Bravo!"
