Really appropriate and well done
on May 14, 2013
You know how when you are in a museum, and you see bowl of fruit and you just sort of walk by it because it's boring compared to everything else? Yea, that how I feel about this soundtrack if it had been purely 20s music. I think that's what the OTHER Gatsby movie is for.
People - HELLO!!! This was an appropriate and proportionate interpretation of music in this movie!! It fit the storyline to a perfect T! I couldn't have been happier with it, and I haven't stopped listening to it since it's release. And considering the director and his other films, anyone expecting a liner soundtrack is seriously responsible for their own disappointment. See the other movie if you want a Jazz age soundtrack. If you want a compelling arrangement that will carry the storyline beyond the screen, this is the one for you. I only wish they would include the instrumental versions of the songs, but maybe in a few weeks it'll come out.
