AllMusic Review by

Director Wim Wenders assembled a modern rock Who's Who for this soundtrack, which includes tracks by U2 (both of which also turn up on their Zooropa album), Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Jane Siberry, and Laurie Anderson. The result is a moody, evocative set that works with the film and as a consistent collection of contemporary songs. (Almost half of the album is given over to selections from Laurent Pettitgand's low-key score.)
