Synopsis

Album Description
The Departed has been hailed as director Martin Scorsese's most powerful film since Goodfellas. With critical acclaim, major stars and all the punch of an explosive crime drama, The Departed is set to be a box-office smash. The soundtrack album features songs from all-time greats The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, The Allman Brothers Band, Roy Buchanan and Badfinger along with a collaboration between Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, Van Morrison, and The Band. Add cult faves The Human Beinz, current South Boston punkers Dropkick Murphys, an R&B gem from LaVern Baker, a country- pop selection from the immortal Patsy Cline, and a pair of selections from Grammy® Award-winning score composer Howard Shore and The Departed's soundtrack album promises to be as widely popular as the film.

CD Reviews

Missing song
JOHN H. PARK | Arcadia, CA United States | 12/06/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The strongest song of the whole film, without a doubt, is the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter". Of course, the soundtrack doesn't include it."
Wonderfully captures the feel of the film
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 07/19/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Departed finally won Martin Scorsese the long overdue Oscar he has so very much deserved over the years. Like Goodfellas and Casino before it, The Departed utilized a soundtrack of previously available songs to set the mood and capture the feel of the film, and this soundtrack succeeds on just about all counts. The blistering live rendition of Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb" by Roger Waters, Van Morrison, and The Band starts the disc off, and is followed by classic tracks from the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers Band, and Patsy Cline. Sandwiched in between these older acts and the two score tracks contributed from composer Howard Shore, is the instantly catchy "I'm Shipping Up to Boston" from punk favorites the Dropkick Murphys, which you'll no doubt remember nodding your head to when watching the film. There may not be anything featured here that you haven't heard before or seen somewhere else, but the soundtrack for The Departed is a blast regardless and wonderfully captures the feel of the film. In those regards alone, the soundtrack, much like the film itself, is a pleasently wonderful treat."
