Subtitled "Surviving the Northwest rock explosion," the film is a wry documentary about the rise and fall of Seattle as grunge central. The mostly-live original soundtrack covers every major (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden), mid-size (Posies, Mudhoney), and shouldabeen (Fastbacks, Flop, Supersuckers) act imaginable. Think of it as an instant collection of rare Sub Pop, Frontier and C-Z singles. --Jeff Bateman

Hype! was a great documentary chronicling the ups and downs of the Seattle grunge scene. This soundtrack has a really interesting selection of songs, not only in that there are several bands that wouldn't be obvious choices for a grunge compilation, but also that the songs they chose for the obvious ones are non-obvious songs (ie, the Nirvana pick is "Negative Creep"). It seems to be "missing" quite a bit though. Where are Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees, Dickless, and Candlebox? Where's the side project stuff like Temple of the Dog, Mad Season, and Brad? Where's all the rest of the interesting stuff the film delved into, like Coffin Break, Hammerbox, Zipgun, and Crackerbash (which had a prominent song in the movie, I thought this was a soundtrack?)? I guess they couldn't cover *everything*, though it would've been nice for this to be a double album with all the aforementioned bands represented. Despite that disappointment it's really hard to complain about this CD, as it contains 22 tracks of pure greatness, including several rarities, and, for everyone except the most expert of grunge connoisseurs, several bands that you otherwise wouldn't bother to check out. The liner notes are pretty weak, but that's just me nitpicking.

The fact is, this is 22 tracks of grunge, only a few of which would plausibly be in anyone's collection, none of which are hit singles or on hit albums, and all of which are excellent. Get it.

Like many people (although few would probably admit it), the mainstream hype over "grunge" is what got me interested in indie music in the first place. After renting the movie (it's really good), I realized that I had missed out on a lot of great dumb Seattle-area stuff. Not every song on this soundtrack is to my liking, but for the most part they rock, and it has pushed me out there, combing the cd stores for a bunch of new (to me) discs.

The term Grunge has got to be one of the only subgenre titles that its supposed progenitors are eager to avoid. Punks, Metalheads, Psychobillies, Rockabillies, Indies and Emos. These aren't mere subgenre titles; they are badges worn with the highest honor. Yet Grunge still has an almost toxic slime-like element to its name. Perhaps a touch appropriate, given that arguably none of the Big Four's musical stylings could be classified under that moniker. The selection found herein encapsulates the tongue-in-cheek style also represented in the documentary that this soundtrack belongs to. Perhaps the most commendable choice was to include only one track each from Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden. Not only one track each, but none are big singles. The brunt of the tracks belong to many of the bands who unfortunately were forced to exist on the periphery of the bigger-selling names. Tad, Dead Moon, U-Men, 7 Year Bitch, Green River. The only other place you'd be likely to find a selection like this would be on the Sub-Pop compilations. Another sign of the quality music here? Nearly all tracks are culled from live shows. You definitely don't have to be an ardent Grunge apologist to get some great mileage out of this. If you're interested in the history of this music mo(ve)ment, start with this, the documentary Hype!, Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge, and the aforementioned Sub-Pop compilations

This is such a good movie and the C.D. isn't bad either. I wish the song that Love Battery plays in the movie was on the C.D. I really like the fans in Seattle that they show standing in line for the gigs.The guys in Screaming Trees are really cool too, and so is TAD. My only question is whats happening up there now?

Ok- I'll start by telling you that I love every song on this CD. The main reason that kept it from getting five stars is the exclusion of so many great songs from the motion picture. I mean, the movie went so far out of it's way to showcase some of the best bands ever crammed on to a documentary, and then the soundtrack for the most part followed the mistakes that the major record labels made when signing seattle bands- They didn't go far enough! What about Zipgun, Coffin Break, Hammerbox, and don't even tell me that the bassline & drums from the opening song (Bandages by Crackerbash) didn't make you wanna jump out of your seat and break something. All in all, a good collection, but too many bands on here that everyone has heard of already and not enough of the ones that we haven't.

This was a really cool DVD to watch with some rare footage. If you want to know some more about the Music Community in Seattle from the early 80s to the mid 1990s...Buy it. If you aren't really into it and just want to hear about the Big 4 (Nirvana, Soundgarden, AIC, and PJ) don't buy it. Vedder has some cool interviews in here as well as Kim Thayl from SG, and Jack Endino. If I could change one thing it would be to talk more about the earlier bands(Melvins, Malfunktion, U-Men, Skin Yard, etc). But it was great regardless! And hey, anyone know the name of that Fastbacks song that they play in the end credits? I can't find it anywhere...they keep saying "Oh yeah..." Lemme know. Enjoy to those who buy it. Hope you like it.
