We gave it an A-

Add this to your list of the 10 worst party CDs ever. Gabriel’s languid score to Miramax’s upcoming Aussie import Rabbit Proof Fence has the same ethereal grace as Passion, his Grammy-winning music for The Last Temptation of Christ. Gabriel applies studio magic to birdsongs, chants, and didgeridoo to create haunting soundscapes. For the masterful ”Ngankarrparni,” he mixed Aboriginal vocals with the Blind Boys of Alabama’s. Walk won’t get you dancing, but it just might make you cry.
