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.

Got this for same day release and immediately threw it on the stereo to blast the volume as it should be :) Let me say up front, I'm dropping one star ONLY because there are a few tracks I wasn't a big fan of when they came out and time hasn't greatly changed my opinion. That, of course, is purely subjective and ymmv. I haven't seen the movie yet, but from what I HAVE seen (extended clips and the like) this album plays a major part in the film and seems to capture the mood nicely. Even if you have never heard of the GotG or not, this is still a great album of class rock songs that I would recommend for anybody who's a fan of that period or needs a good introduction to great tunes that they may not have heard. One thing: I noticed some definite hiss on a couple of the tracks, and I believe this may have been deliberate. Given the way the "tape" fits into the story, preserving that old tape hiss reflects its origin and function within the movie. Or they may not have wanted to spend the time and money to remaster. I prefer to go with deliberate artistic decision :)

Since that first trailer I can't get the music out of my head - This soundtrack is awesome. ( hence the faux label )

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!

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.

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.)
