While the film "Away We Go" was pretty good, I really enjoyed the music. I decided to buy the soundtrack based on the initial viewing of the movie. I was pleasantly surprised. I had never heard of Alexi Murdoch, and I don't know why. He has an amazing sound and he should be heard more often. While the other songs are enjoyable (particularly Bob Dylan's Meet me in the Morning) it's Murdoch's incomparable sound that makes this album a must listen to!

This cd is so so SOOOO gooood! Alexi Murdoch is the primary artist on the cd (and he's AWESOME, btw) but there are a few other 'gems' on here too... George Harrison, Bob Dylan. It's a lovely album full of music and one that is sure to lift the spirit of an ailing heart. So beautiful! If you've happened upon this review by chance and you've not seen the movie that the soundtrack derives from? Stop what you're doing. Right now! Stop! Type into the Search engine here, "Away We Go" in Movies and TV and buy it! Or, be sure to catch it on your movie channels at home ~ ohmygosh! Such a sweet movie! Waaayyy overlooked by studio bigwigs ~ should have gotten way more publicity! Either way you go, I promise, you won't be disappointed. :) Have a groovy day! xo

I mean, i usually can tell who is playing in most pop soundtracks, but i was fooled by Alexi Murdoch, a Nick Drake, John Martin and Jim O'Rourke sound and sing alike. Very interesting to say the least. Not very original, but who really is these days. I like it.

After seeing this movie at home, I was immediately moved by the music. I went on Amazon and ordered it right away and have not been disappointed. Highly recommend the soundtrack.
Bonus, it shipped and was in hand in 2 days, now that's what I call instant gratification.
