Editorial Reviews

American Hustle - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, premieres a new recording from Jeff Lynne (E.L.O.) called, "Stream of Stars," in addition to several poignant 70s anthems such as "Live And Let Die" by Wings, "I Feel Love" by Donna Summer, "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by Elton John, and many more.

A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that's as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving's unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell's previous films (Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter, etc.), American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.

Format: MP3 Music
Music: 4.5 stars; sequencing: 3.5 stars; economic value: 4 stars.

I just saw "American Hustle" in the theatre, and made a mental note to myself to check out the soundtrack, as the music plays prominently in the movie.

"American Hustle: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (15 tracks; 55 min.) is chock-full of excellent songs from the 1970s, some of them very well known (and deemed "classics") and others not so much (and deemed "forgotten nuggets"). First things first: regrettably (and for reasons totally unclear to me), the soundtrack does NOT brings the songs in the same order as they are played in the movie. Instead, the sequencing seems pretty much entirely random. The soundtrack starts here with Duke Ellington's "Jeep's Blues" (Ellington is a common interest of two of the movie's main characters), then we dive straight into Elton John's "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". One of the most hilarious scenes in "American Hustle" comes late in the movie when the character played by Jennifer Lawrence, a 'dumb blond' housewife called Rosalyn, cleans house and sings/dances to Paul McCartney's Live and Let Die, now playing upfront on the soundtrack. Another very memorable scene comes when Bradley Cooper's Richie and Amy Adam's Sydney characters go out on the town and end up dancing at a club to Donna Summers' classic I Feel Love, after which the movie shifts to another scene where other characters are singing/dancing along to Tom Jones' Delilah. Sheer delight! America's Horse With No Name, one of the first songs in the movie, is buried deep on here.

Where in the heck is Steely Dan's Dirty Work? Why was that left off the sound track cd? It was 1 of the first songs in the movie, and describes the American Hustle so well!

There are actually LOTS of songs missing - not just "Dirty Work" as others have mentioned. "Does Anybody Really Know What Time it is", "Evil Ways", "Papa Was a Rolling Stone", etc. (See below link.) If I'm going to buy a soundtrack, it needs to be more thorough - and in sequence - so you can easily relive the movie as you're listening. Loved the movie though, and the music was a big, big part of that.

Good collection of songs from the 70's, however, not period true for 1978. Regrettably, one of the best songs in the motion picture, Steely Dan's "Dirty Work" is left off the soundtrack album.

Like many other posts I was very disappointed that the Zep and Steely songs were omitted from the soundtrack but overall, this is a decent, enjoyable album/collection of songs and an even better, shall we say fantastic movie. Unlike other posts, I not only noticed the music was not from 1978 (Jeeps Blues is the giveaway - spoiler alert) but realized that it didn't matter to the movie - Perhaps it was simply the music on the radio at the time. If you don't already have these songs, this album makes a great background music/party album IMHO

I loved the movie and ordered this on the way out of the theater. I just really like the music from this time period. I guess it is the music of my youth, but I'm appreciating it in a new way as a 40-something. Great arrangements.

Nice, and love the Jeff Lynne stuff, but soundtracks are usually incomplete, as is this CD, with only 14 of the listed 30 songs at end of movie music credits (ie: "Evil Ways" is in movie credits - I suppose since it was in deleted scenes; and I have no idea what the last song is on CD "Irving Montage").

I wanted to pick this up even before seeing the film because of the amazing artists, but wouldn't allow myself to until I had. ELO/Jeff Lynne, Elton John, Duke Ellington, Danny Elfman, Wings... Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is one of my favorite songs from Elton and I never owned one of his albums, so it's inclusion here was perfect for me. There is a terrific cover of White Rabbit and the Bee Gees How Can you mend a Broken Heart (quicker than the Al Green version I'm used to) and America's A Horse with No Name lend-- at least in my mind-- a sort of vague continuity in a very eclectic album that contains disco, jazz, lounge singing and an oddly enjoyable song of revenge and tragedy by Tom Jones. The Duke Ellington track sets the mood beautifully and at the albums close we are treated to, short as it is, one of the best Elfman tracks to date, but the icing on the cake is a rare ELO track titled Long Black Road. it's so catchy I could just keep skipping back and playing it over and over, and I have.
