Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Elizabethtown soundtrack features new tracks from Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, and My Morning Jacket, who actually appear in the movie as a band called Ruckus. Other tracks featured on the album come from Elton John, the Hollies, and Wheat. Notorious rocker Ryan Adams also gets in on the action, supplying the song 'Come Pick Me' from his breakthrough Heartbreaker album. Singing the Crowe/Wilson penned song 'Same in Any Language' are newcomers I Nine. RCA. 2005.

Amazon.com

Director Cameron Crowe is known for paying very close attention to the soundtracks to his movies. For Elizabethtown, in which he revisits his Kentucky roots, Crowe has put together a low-key album full of gently moaning pedal-steel guitars, fretful mandolins, and men in full sensitive-balladeer mode. Whereas Almost Famous reached for the hedonistic 1970s, Elizabethtown tries to evoke a timelessly rootsy vibe through artists new (Ryan Adams, Wheat) and classic (Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham) alike. Petty, Buckingham, and Kentucky natives My Morning Jacket all contribute new tracks, while Crowe and film scorer Nancy Wilson wrote the theme song, "Same in Any Language," for I Nine to perform. But once again, it's Elton John who pulls the chestnuts from the fire. Just as his "Tiny Dancer" was the clear highlight of the Almost Famous soundtrack, an old Elton epic overshadows the rest of the Elizabethtown lineup. Culled from Sir Elton's 1971 album Tumbleweed Connection, "My Father's Gun" is the kind of superb fake-roots song that paradoxically makes the others contributors sound arch. Go figure. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't play this in your PC! November 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sony's copy protection scheme installs harmful rootkit software on Windows machines. This software can crash your machine, and make it easier for viruses to infect you. By design, it is impossible to uninstall without advanced technical skills.

Sony recently released a patch to mitigate these concerns. However, the patch only addresses the issue of potential virus infection. Uninstalling the software is still nearly impossible, and if attempted incorrectly can render your CD drive unusable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sony's Rootkit November 10, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
This CD WILL install a rootkit on Windows machines. If you intend to play this on your computer, then you're going to screw up your own PC. Sony will install files on your PC without your permission, files that can't be removed easily. You'll wish you listened to us if you buy this CD. Don't think we're telling the truth, go to

5.0 out of 5 stars A Journey to a Better Place July 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
First in regards to the copy protect thing - this cd gave me no problems but that might be cause the drive/computer I have it in has no burner.

One thing can be said for Cameron Crowe...his movies might falter a bit (as Elizabethtown unfortunately did) but he knows how to put together a banging soundtrack. Whether you've seen the film or not you'll probably get the urge to take a spontaneous rural road trip, or to sit out back and start up a campfire with friends, or to just chill with someone special. A mix of folk, blues, and country from today and yesteryear this album is a gem that flows from track to track.

The Nancy Wilson theme for the film sets the tone for the cd right off the hop - lots of guitars with a bit of banjo in there as well. Tom Petty's two contributions (Tracks 2 and 14) are heartfelt, relaxed tunes that are among the best on the cd. Elton John follows Petty & The Heartbreakers with a sweeping 70's power ballad, "My Father's Gun", which flows into the dreamy ethereal "This Time Around".

Ryan Adams provides what I feel to be one of the best tracks on the album with "Come Pick Me Up" a slow blues builder with a fantastic chorus - one of the few recongizable from the film. Country inches its way into the blues circle a bit with My Morning Jacket & Patty Griffin's tunes. "Sugar Blue" by Jeff Finlin is up next and takes on a unique modern country sound with a real bluesy vibe to it.

The 21st century is much more apparent on Wheat's "Don't I Hold You" a light-alt-folk-rock offering. Lindsey Buckingham's tune sounds like it was ripped right from the Garden State soundtrack but fits in equally well here. Then we go back in time again with the upbeat Hombres track "Let It Out".

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh, Come On!!! November 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was so looking forward to the release of this soundtrack. How dissappointing! Good music - BAD technology. I will NOT be purchasing this title until a version is released with copying capabilities. How ridiculous is it, not to be able to play a CD off of your own hard drive!?! 5 stars for the music, but I can't actually rate the product that highly if I can't even play it when and where I want to. I would rather do without Sony CDs, than pay $$ for such an unusable product. Yes, I know I could just use a regular CD player, but that's not the point - and it's not always convenient either.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! Won't buy it. January 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Not when there is malicious copy protection on it. Take it off and I'll buy it. What a shame that adult music (it ain't Hanson) like this has this horrible software on it that can destroy your computer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Problem with this CD November 12, 2005
By MarkMac
Format:Audio CD
Sony will not allow you to play this CD in your computer, without installing some very bad software. Read this article for the full story on what Sony is doing: [...]

From this day forward I will never spend another dime on content that I can't use the way I please. If I can't copy it to my hard drive and play it using the devices I want, when and where I want, I won't be buying it. Period.

4.0 out of 5 stars Itunes version is not copy protected March 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Sony CDs that are copy protected should not be bought - however this collection is available on Itunes w/out the nasty program - the music is good - I love Patty Griffen's song - one drawback - only one of the Tom Petty Songs that that were in the movie is on this sound track - "It'll all work out". "Learning to Fly" is Available on his greatest his album if you are interested.
