An alluring composition tailored for the film

"Few film scores are worthy of a 5 star rating in my book, but Wojciech Kilar's 'The Ninth Gate' is one of the few truly powerful compositions that really grab you.
This score really harnesses the nature of the film, which is a horrific thriller of the paranormal and evil. The music is predominantly orchestral compilations taken straight out of the film. There is no foul play in the presentation of this album. Every piece from the movie is included on the CD in immaculate quality and presentation. Sumi Jo is the soprano who is featured in several of the tracks. Although I've only heard of her from this album, her voice is amazing and it really compliments the tracks. The symphonic orchestral compilations are rendered in a very delicate way, balancing the power of the bass instruments with the highs of the violins and clarinets...The result is a very sharp presentation with no over-hanging lows. At the same time, however, the presentation is just soft enough, making it manageable to listen to at intense volume, yet precise in the highs without inducing listener interesting phenomenon...and VERY enjoyable to experience. The fold-out leaflet also includes all NINE engravings from the mythical book 'The Nine Gates' and explains them in short captions.I recommend this CD, buy it, you'll enjoy it."

"Powerfully dark and moving, this cd will dynamically change your mood if you allow it."
Better than the film

"This is one of those film soundtracks that made the movie better than what it was. I absolutly love Johnny Depp, but you've got to admit that the ninth gate was less then stellar.........but this soundtrack! Its just beautful in a prime evil sort of way. Definatly a mood setter if you are looking for soft, deep darkly moody music. I definatly recommand it, you won't be disappointed!"
