Product Description

Original Motion Picture soundtrack for the new romantic comedy starring Jennifer Garner. After losing her fianc‚ in a tragic accident during his bachelor party, a would-be widow (Jennifer Garner) struggles to sort through the secrets he kept from her as she adjusts to her new life. Erin Brockovich screenwriter, Susannah Grant, makes this her directorial debut. Great, prominent soundtrack features Foo Fighters, The Magic Numbers, Death Cab For Cutie & More! A collection of songs with all the charm, allure and energy of the Garden State soundtrack.

Amazon.com

Fans of (largely) mellow songs by (mostly) American indie rock outfits should snap up this superior soundtrack. Representative of the mood is "Pills" by Gary Jules--an original song that feels as Cat Stevens–indebted as Jules's popular cover of "Mad World" on the Donnie Darko soundtrack. Foo Fighters' "Razor" and Paul Westerberg's "Let the Bad Times Roll" see these acts at their calmest. Largely acoustic and gently paced, the CD almost never raises its pulse, and even when it does, as with Audible's "Sky Signal," it remains appealingly melodic. While most of the tracks are from the mid-'00s, it's great to hear the Lemonheads's 1992 "My Drug Buddy" again--it still counts as one of Evan Dando's finest moments. And although the flavor is largely American, trips across the pond result in lovely tracks by the Magic Numbers who supply their customary Mamas and Papas-influenced harmonies on "Mornings Eleven," and by Gomez with their shuffling "These 3 Sins." --Elisabeth Vincentelli

Perhaps the oddest thing about being a music reviewer is the way that it causes such a social imbalance in my life. The average person watches a lot of television, sees two or three movies each month, and listens to whatever pleases them. I, however, watch very little television, virtually never go to the movies, and listen to dozens of albums that mean virtually nothing to me. It causes a social imbalance that ultimately renders my opinions on music obtuse, because I am clueless regarding most aspects of pop culture. I bring this up because I'm fairly certain that I will never see the movie "Catch and Release," but I've listened to the soundtrack a few times now, and I think it's great.

As a soundtrack, "Catch and Release" features some of the most intelligent and tuneful pop music I've heard in a while. You'd expect as much from Death Cab for Cutie and Gomez, but it's the more obscure acts who really bring something special to this collection. I've never heard of Blinker the Star, or The Magic Numbers, or Gary Jules, but if this is representative of their work, I want to hear more by them. The songs they contribute here are bright, imaginative and impossible to forget. As soundtrack fodder, the material is excellent. As a mix-tape of cleverly chosen and challenging music, it's virtually faultless. Foo Fighters kick off the disk with one of their best acoustic-based tracks ever, a pensive, moody piece called "Razor," and the pace continues for the next seventeen tracks.

This movie was amazing and beautiful. It was sad, adorable, and hilarious. The theater would actually crack up many times, and even once, we all "awwwwwwwwwww"-ed together. However, I found myself actually whispering to my friend, "I NEED THIS SOUNDTRACK!" This is one of those movies where you can't help but notice how perfect the songs fit in with the film. The music actually made the movie THAT much better.

I definately recommend this soundtrack to anyone who loves this movie, or anyone who is looking for a great relaxing CD to listen to while your driving, or just hanging around the house!

I was surprised by how much I liked the music in this "chick flick" -- the songs were a lot more deep and interesting than I expected (actually the film was pretty good and thoughtful, too, but that's not the point here). Anyway, good songs, they work well together, and it's really an enjoyable indie pop mix. Nice job, music supervisor!

I really liked this movie but love the soundtrack. I have discovered new artists from this movie like Joshua Radin and Death Cab For Cutie(heard of them, never listened before). I normally don't get into the soundtracks for movies but this one caught my attention, I recommend it to anyone.

I loved this movie. While watching it the music became a very important part of the movie so I ordered the soundtrack. It's great! One of my favorites. If you liked the Garden State or Last Kiss soundtrack's you'll love this one.

When I saw the movie in theaters, I recognized a couple songs, and loved some of the ones I had never heard.. so I knew I was going to get the soundtrack. And I'm soooo glad I did. It's a perfectly moodly and light sound that compliments the movie so well. This is one of those CDs, that though I have favorite tracks for sure, I can let the whole thing play and not skip around. If you like the genre (ie: you know you like one or two of these tracks), it's almost a sure thing that you'll like the rest of them too. Great CD all around.

This is a fantastic album! Anyone who likes Alternative Rock or Soft Rock would love it. If you liked the movie - one of the best I've seen in a long time - then it's a must have.

If you dig 90s alternative music you'll love this album. I was very excited to find the Lemonheads and Paul Westerberg (The Replacements) on the CD. I have throughly enjoyed listening to this soundtrack.
