Deep & exciting !!!!
Lee Marie Sadek | 12/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me first assure people that this "instrumental" album (yet considered by some as background music )...is by far one of the best Pet Shop Boys' albums ever produced . All the essence of the PSB sound is here and amplified dramatically by the classical orchestra ; the music captures very well the subject of the film putting the listener right in the middle of the ocean : as soon as the music starts you will REALLY get the feeling of sailing !!! even the steaming mechanical sounds of the battleship make their way into the album to make your experience "closer" to this trip .
The expression "moving" is the best for describing the sound : from the ambient electronics that capture your body ...to the classical symphony that captures your brain ... or more accurately your heart !
Neil Tennant was absolutely right affirming that this piece of work is more than background music .
And MUCH MORE !!!...

"Wow!

I love this album! This is the best thing they've released in a VERY long time! Such an eargasm after Release - which, although better than most crap being made nowadays, was just so not THEM... and I couldn't get into it very much.

This is the kind of album you just have to allow to play from start to end - if you stop and start it at different parts of the disc, the soundtrack loses its power. I do, however, prefer certain tracks. My absolute fave was "The Squadron", which is probably the most thrilling track they've ever composed. The strings in it are stunning, and the buildup is so dramatic, by the time you reach the melody, it's like you're having some kind of orgasm. At least, after a joint that's what it's like! ;-)

I do hope they release the film with this soundtrack dubbed over it on DVD - I actually have never seen the original version, and so seeing the film for the first time with this amazing score would be mesmerizing.

Anyone who thinks the PSB are just another lame 80s gay pop band /who think they've lost their touch in recent years has to hear this."
Battleship Potemkin Sails Again!

"This film soundtrack, done by the Pet Shop Boys (Tennant/Lowe) is the latest new soundtrack to this classisc silent film (Battleship Potemkin) from the Russian school. Alone, the soundtrack is a bit strange because it fits the movie exactly, frame by frame, cut by cut. There are some abrupt changes and three songs. However it is a crowning achievement for Tennant and Lowe. I was most impressed by the performance as well. It's a live recording from Liechester Square in London, and it set a world record for the largest crowd ever to see an art film. If you love the Pet Shop Boys, You'll love this soundtrack which I count amongst their finest artistic achievements."
