Editorial Reviews

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY AWESOME MIX VOL. 1 is the collection of songs featured in the film. Music plays a major role in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY as the 1970s songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way. Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, 'One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape (Awesome Mix #1) that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that's the only thing he has left of his mother and that's the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. He uses that as a connection to his past and to the sadness that he feels of having left all that and lost all that.'

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand with the galaxy's fate in the balance.

Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, which first appeared in comic books in Marvel Super-Heroes, Issue #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime and Benicio Del Toro as The Collector. James Gunn is the director of the film with Kevin Feige, p.g.a., producing. Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Nik Korda and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is written by James Gunn and Nicole Perlman.

Format:Audio CD
There's no doubting that Guardians of the Galaxy is the first truly fun movie you'll see all summer. In a summer where the truly fantastic movies' themes have been the daddy issues and nuclear nightmares of gigantic radioactive dinosaurs, and xenophobia in an planet where humans and apes struggle to coexist, halfway through the summer comes the first film that has been the total escape of the year. Sure, it isn't a perfect movie- there are some issues with pacing, and the villains' dialogue is a tad corny, and some underdeveloped character relationships, but none of that matters when you're having so much fun and reveling in the action, clever dialogue, amazing visuals and in general, the nostalgia that the themes conjure up such as elements of Star Wars, Indiana Jones and even The Avengers. But one thing that is perfect? Its soundtrack. I say without exaggeration that you will walk out with several of its 1970s retro gold tracks in your head. And since I've picked up the soundtrack CD on Friday, I haven't been able to stop listening to it since- it's been on my iPad, my phone, on the way to work during dinner, etc. And I can say that one listen is enough to get this effect going.

Mix tapes play a big part of the film's themes. The protagonist, Peter "Starlord" Quill, has a Walkman he keeps on him as he goes around and steals ancient artifacts from far-off planets- something he's had since he was a kid, and a tape deck on his spaceship. He has his "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" he has had since childhood, and its music, in addition to Tyler Bates' incidental music, is what makes up the heart of the film. And on its own, it's just as great, if maybe even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" is a very accurate title! July 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This might be the best soundtrack ever. And never has a soundtrack been so essential to a movie.The "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" is a major part of the plot of the movie and the music it contains is an awesome mix (hence the name) of 1970's music.

This is a must own for fans of 70's music and fans of Marvel.

Take the 12 songs from this soundtrack. Now, COMPARE them, RIGHT NOW, to the top 12 songs in the current 'Billboard Hot 100' chart.

What do you notice?

Enough said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Mix indeed August 3, 2014
Format:Audio CD
The score is perfectly suited to the film and the artwork (a reference to the film) is amazing. I'm actually dissapointed that they didn't release an actual tape for this soundtrack besides the CD. That would have been extra amazing, and I'd buy it in an instant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly an awesome mix! July 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been listening to this all day and never seem to tire of it. I saw the movie at an early screening a week ago and this is a great companion to the film experience. My hubby is waiting until he sees the film so he won't be spoiled on the exact songs included. As a child of the 70's I really love these songs...not in an ironic sort of way. In fact, I'm in the midst of a vinyl mid-life crisis so I have already ordered that version as well. I loved the movie and I love this soundtrack!

Haven't heard of the 18, but the 12 I've got are here, from Gunn's own website... a Deluxe 2CD package includes theorchestal score, so that might be the 18 you're hearing about... enjoy (p.s. - If you go out and buy a couple of 1970's music compilation CDs, you'll find these for WAY LESS.)

Correct track list order?
I found it on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2015381/soundtrack. Your first song is wrong...don't forget about him waiting to see his mom (I'm not in love).

They should release on Tape
Maybe they can do a limited edition set when it releases on Bluray. Get the disc and this on cassette.
