Customer Reviews

why so many album only tracks?

Whoever is responsible for marketing this album is making a big mistake. Most of the key songs here are available elsewhere as individual tracks, and we real fans already have them. If you think I'm shelling out $20 just to get some dialogue and the Neville Brothers and Domaje cuts you're sadly mistaken. Make these songs available individually and you'll see a big jump in sales.

not worth it

maybe if they'd let you buy some of these tracks individually, they'd be worth buying, but as a bundle it isn't worth 25 dollars.


Some might complain that there are too many sound clips on this compilation, but they help tell the flow of the story in a way that makes you reminisce about one of the best shows ever put on TV (oh, sorry, it's not TV, it's HBO) -- but from the perspective of the musical storytellers. I always thought the quality of selection of the music in The Wire was one of the most subtle contributors to its greatness, specifically in the way that tunes were sourced from the character's lives rather than intended to cue the viewer to a mood. They served as character enhancers, rather than cheap stagecraft, which actually draws the audience closer to the story. The montage and credit music are great selections as well, along with the four significantly different renditions of Tom Waits' "Down in the Hole." There's so much wonderful stuff that's not here, though -- all of McNulty's driving and bar music should be it's own album -- and for that reason I encourage people to buy the physical CD from, or at least track down the short commentaries by David Simon, George Pelecanos, and Jeff Lee, as they do give additional color to the collection.
