Editorial Reviews

How To Be is a coming of age comedy about twenty-something musician
Art who gets dumped by his girlfriend, moves back with his parents and
hits a quarter-life crisis. The 23-track soundtrack features three
orginal songs performed by Robert Pattinson, the striking original
score by composer Joe Hastings and the quirky electronic sounds of
musician-actor Johnny White (The Rollercoaster Project), who plays
Ronny in the film. Other musical highlights include 'Old Man' by Love,
'Clear Spot' by elusive genius Captain Beefheart and 'Hammond Song' by The Roches (as heard in the trailer). Film written and directed by
Oliver Irving.

I had no real expectations when I bought this CD,other than I really enjoyed Mr Pattinsons songs in the Twilight movie, so was hoping for more of that...

That wasn't what I got, but on the other hand, I did enjoy the CD as
a whole. Mr Pattinsons songs were clever, though at times it was hard
to really decipher his voice, it seemed like background for the guitar.
I liked the lyrics for Chokin' on the Dust, but I liked Doin'Fine better.
It was a little clearer.

I truly enjoyed many of the other songs, especially Clear Spot by Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band...pretty unique lyrics.

If your looking for a simple and enjoyable CD, you will not be disappointed. If
you are buying it to hear Robert Pattinson, and his "sound" now. You may not like it.

I love this soundtrack. I skip over three tracks, two of them by Rollercoaster Project. Never heard of Joe Hastings before, but I love his arrangements and instrumentation. Simple, yet reflective of the story I imagine it to be -- haven't seen the movie yet -- given the dialogue provided throughout and the movie summaries online. Woe to anyone who expects to hear ROBERT PATTINSON singing on this CD; for it is definitely ART (the character with little talent) singing. Here's another side of Robert's acting skills and -- again -- I can't wait to see the movie. :)

If you liked the quirky movie you will love the soundtrack. It takes you throughout the movie with music. I find myself laughing or smiling when certain songs are played. The harmonica melodies are beautiful.

I swear I didn't just buy this because Rob Pattinson was on the cover! The CD is actually really good and I was very pleased with the time it took to receive it!

I haven't been able to watch the movie because it has not arrive to my country, but the first time I heard the CD I could imagine how funny and insightful is the story. It has been great to experience that feeling and I can wait to watch the movie.

I just recieved this soundtrack! And I must say that I truly love love they did the soundtrack, with the speaking and music. I truly love the music! And definitly of course Robert Pattinson and gifted talent of music! Yes I am biased. Rob is younger in this soundtrack, so Rob Pattinson fans will ttruly like and love this soundtrack with his muusic and speaking voice.
