Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Repeating the feat that accompanied his directorial debut, Garden State, Zach Braff has again put together a tastefully assembled compilation of music. The track listing reads like a cherry-picked bouquet of refined American singer-songwriters (Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann, Rufus Wainwright, Ray Lamontagne), sprinkled with literate-yet-popular UK combos (Snow Patrol, Athlete, Turin Brakes) and the lone international megaband (Coldplay, already on Garden State). Based on the selection, Braff is the kind of guy who isn’t afraid to show his sensitive side (that’d be the American songs, especially Apple’s "Paper Bag" and Aimee Mann’s "Today’s the Day"), but who also likes to hang out at soft-rock clubs with his cool mates (that’d be the British songs, especially Snow Patrol’s "Chocolate" and Turin Brakes’ Simon & Garfunkel-like "Pain Killer"). Really, it’s a win-win combination—except for those who prefer their rock more rocking, since the mood is, overall, really mellow. (Note that Michael Penn score isn’t represented here.) --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Zach Braff must love me -- he made me a new mix tape August 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Given the immense success of the Garden State soundtrack, it's little wonder that Zach Braff was asked to produce the soundtrack for his new film, The Last Kiss. As Braff himself has said, the album can be considered a sequel of sorts to the Garden State soundtrack -- the mellow tone of the new album is very similar. Overall, however, the Last Kiss soundtrack exudes a slightly more mature vibe than its predecessor, which isn't surprising given the closer-to-30-than-20 themes of his new film.

Highlights of the album include Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek," a truly unique standout, as well as Athlete's "El Salvador," a fun song that's guaranteed to have you singing along. Lesser-known artists shine -- Joshua Radin's "Star Mile" immediately conjures up images of Paul Simon -- while better known names like Coldplay and Fiona Apple contribute strong offerings, as well.

I'm a big fan of soundtracks as catalysts for discovering new music, but many can be hit and miss. The Last Kiss soundtrack, though, doesn't include a single track that I'll be tempted to skip over. If you enjoyed the Garden State album, then this is a shoo-in; if you're unfamiliar with many of the artists but generally like the singer-songwriter alt vibe, then give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Beautiful Soundtrack From Zach Braff October 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's the highest compliment when you buy a soundtrack before you see the first frame of the film. Zach Braff had great success with Garden State because the songs were great and stood by themselves. He also specializes in introducing new bands that people should hear.

In this case, he balances the mix nicely. Opening with Snow Patrol's "Chocolate", he shares a great track for people who only know their big single "Run".

Joshua Radin is introduced to a larger audience with the beautiful "Star Mile". It has sweet vocal elements that recall Simon & Garfunkel's "The Boxer".

Turin Brakes comes next as a newer band with some nice harmonies in "Pain Killer".

Coldplay's "Warning Sign" anchors the record with a great song from a few years back. Recorded years before the massive success of "X&Y", it sounds new again.

The Cary Brothers' "Ride" blend acoustic guitars, strings and floating vocals for a beautiful song.

Athlete's "El Salvador" sounds a little like a British Barenaked Ladies with a Beck influence.

Imogen Heap's stunning "Hide and Seek" can't be on enough soundtracks. First appearing on The O.C. and then on her "Speak For Yourself" CD. It's almost not fair to compare it to the rest of the CD. It's just too beautiful.

Rachael Yamagata's "Reason Why" is reminiscent of Sarah McLachlan while Ray LaMontagne's "Hold You in My Arms" almost recalls Jeff Buckley.

Remy Zero picks up the pace with the rocking "Prophecy" while Fiona Apple contributes "Paper Bag. Aimee Mann slow things down with "Today's The Day". Amos Lee offers his great vocals with "Arms of a Woman". Rufus Wainright mixes multiple styles on "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk".

5.0 out of 5 stars One of these things first September 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Zach Braff has a better musical inclination than I. I must admit. What's amazing about this soundtrack is how it has to strike a note with anyone remotely into any music. It's like a refreshing Garden State Volume 2. It's a step ahead, more ambitious but the wind around the music is the same. Mind you, there is no "New Slang" or "One Of These Things First"

I've only heard this cd some six times but I know I will like every song on it,soon. Chocolate sounds better in this album than it did on the Snow Patrol album (for some reason) "Star Mile" is the star song of the record. It is about a guy who leaves this girl who was the one who loved him when noone did. "Pain Killer" will sound good after I watch this film."Warning Sign" surprised me. It somehow makes things look majestic. Excellent. Cary Brothers' "Ride" is the album's "Caring is Creepy".El Savador is good,too.However, "Reason Why" is just plain boring. "Prophecy" can give me a short attention span. One of the three best tracks on the cd is "Arms of a Woman" I mean , WOW!

The Last kiss is basically a cumulation of diverse talent meant for diverse moods which might come under one bracket. You can hear these songs the day your first child is born, the day your girlfriend breaks your heart, the night when you're feeling dull and life seems to be happening somewhere else. It's like a book which is unlike the many on a shelf. This is meant for neurotics, too. "Cigarettes and chocolate milk" is another different track that will lighten your mood. "Paperweight" somehow makes me impatient but someday I will hear it.

p.s - I don't like chocolate milk. Not at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars The real J Frank Wilson February 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I was totally blown away by "Last Kiss" when I first heard it as a teenager a little over four decades ago. I was so excited by this song that I bought the follow up "Six Boys", and then the only other 45 rpm that I know about by J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers, "Speak To Me". I bought this CD because it was the first time I had seen what I have on 45's (other than "Last Kiss" which is in a myriad of anthologies) in CD format. "Six Boys" is to me a forgettable song about a teenage girl's funeral. At the time, everyone I knew assumed, as did most of the DJ's on the stations I listened to, that the dead girl who was at the center of "Six Boys" was the one who died in "Last Kiss". More realistically, probably someone assumed that one dead teenager song should be followed up by another. Musically, "Six Boys" had little in common with "Last Kiss", and it went nowhere on the charts. Their third release, "Speak to Me" begins with a great bass hook, as does "Last Kiss". I loved "Speak to Me" from the time I first heard it. It has been going through my head for years, so I was quite excited to find it on CD. Musically and lyrically it comes straight from the Buddy Holly / Roy Orbison tradition, with a bass line that seems more Motown.

The rest of the CD would be of interest to people who want something that sounds like the kind of rockabilly band that might have played at a high school sock hop in the early to mid 1960's. There are covers of Ray Peterson's "Tell Laura I Love Her" (another classic dying teenager song) and Roy Orbison's "Only the Lonely", as well as other songs that invoke a similar mood.

I highly recommend this people who know and like or want to know more about J.
