Entranced by the movie, I just knew I had to get the soundtrack. Since the town in which my high school was in did not have this stocked, I had to go into the neighboing major city. Believe me when I tell you that the trip was really worth it. I still adore listening to the CD to this day.
Although Jewel is the only anoying track (what is her problem anyways!)it's inclusion should not stop you from buying this CD. From Letters to Cleo, to Love Spit Love (who's cover of the Smith's is ironically used in Charmed!)there are plenty of awesome tracks to override anything too cliched and poppy.This is one of the best CD's for spoky etherial music.
Since the movie is supposed to be dark humor, it is only fitting that the tracks are majority the same. Even if they share one song, newcomers should not get this CD expecting to hear something that reminds them of the Charmed TV series; the girls in this film are outcasts, and three of them abuse their powers by letting their over inflated egos do harm to others.In otherwords, the CD's supposed to be dark, cynical and gloomy

I remember about a year ago when I saw the Craft. Not Only was I shocked on how amazing it was, I loved the music. So when I found the Soundtrack in the store a couple weeks ago I had to get it. I found that almost all the songs are ones that I'd want to play over and over again. Especially the Love Spit Love, Our Lady Peace, Letters to Cleo, and Matthew Stewart. I also loved "under the water" by Jewel. This soundtrack has a good mix of alternative music, and some softer almost poppish tunes. I recocmmend it to anyone. This soundtrack has the ablilty to match the mood of the move, dark, moddy, and witchy.

This is a hell of a soundtrack!.All(And with that I mean all) the songs are great!.Specially the ones by Our Lady Peace "Tomorrow never knows"(Amusing!), Love Spit Love "How soon is now?"(Fantastic!) and the girl touch song by Letter to Cleo "Dangerous type".
I just couldn't stop listening to them with my discman.God! The movie rock and the soundtrack kicked...You know, A..S.
It is worth buying it, don't skip the chance to do it.
FINAL GRADE: A

I love this movie, and I loved a lot of the songs in the movie, so naturally, I had to get the soundtrack. I was not dispointed with it, I constantly listen to it, I love it.
1.) "Tommorrow Never Knows" by Our Lady Peace - Definitely not my favorite song, at some parts it's boring, and they're saying the same thing over and over. But it's still good.
2.) "I Have The Touch" by Heather Nova - I love this song, Heather Nova is so talented. And I know it's a cover of Peter Gabriel, but it's one good cover!
3.) "All This and Nothing" by Sponge - This is a good song, it's unique, and dark. I really like it
4.) "Dangerous Type" by Letters to Cleo - I love Letters to Cleo, they're terrific! This song is excellent, it's my 2nd favorite song on the CD.
5.) "How Soon is Now?" by Love Spit Love - One of the main reasons I bought this CD, I heard it in the movie and really liked it, and then I heard it in the Cruel Intentions preview. It's a terrific song, it seems witchy to me.
6.) "Dark Secret" by Matthew Sweet - Matthew Sweet is terrific, if you look in the CD booklet, you can see how many guitars he can play, I'm impressed. He needs to be more well known, he's got so much talent. I love this song, it's great
7.) "Witches Song" by Juliana Hatfield - It's slightly boring, but I like Juliana Hatfield, she's very talented, but this song dosen't impress me
8.) "Jump Into The Fire" by Tripping Daisy - I don't really like this song, it gets kind of boring, it reminds me of suicide for some reason (You can climb a mountain/You can swim the sea/You can into the fire, but you'll never be free). It's dull but I can sit through it

A mostly dull collection of unnecessary remakes (Juliana Hatfield does Marianne Faithful? Really?), but it has three songs that hint at a spunkier, fun collection. Letters to Cleo's "Dangerous Type" takes The Cars original and makes it playful, Spacehog's "The Horror" is far from a great song but it's absolutely an atmospheric original. And Elastica, go-to band for fun soundtrack songs, outdo themselves with "Spastica," a catchy, clever two-and-a-half minutes of twitchy fun. If only the rest of the album could have the same attitude (and I'll give credit to Tripping Daisy and All Too Much do worhty filler).

Sure, The Craft may have been a teen movie based in Witchcraft, comparable to today's The Covenant, rife with cinematography issues and plot holes... The film aside, the music was very archetypal of the turmoil of the 90's.

However, this soundtrack features music that was quite prominently played in scenes (which is sometimes quite rare.)

Are the songs unique? Perhaps, but they are unique in the way that they have been interpreted by these popular bands of their time. Why? Because most of the songs are covers by other groups, classic songs that have been redefined and restyled.

Love Spit Love and their ode to The Smiths with their version of "How Soon is Now?" evoking an interpretation that almost seems original and genuine. Our Lady Peace and their wonderful rendition of the Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows", I know I will never look at the original song quite the same way. Even lesser known groups such as Letters to Cleo offered their reditions of classics and featured their cover of The Cars classic "Dangerous Type" and Heather Nova with her tribute to Peter Gabriel's classic "I Have the Touch."

However, aside from the covers of classic rock songs, it features new music from artists we never heard of again, such as Warning and Juliana Hatfield.

Groups that you may not have heard of, shaping music in the 90's with the new at the time alternative rock genre. This soundtrack really is quintessential 90's at its best. How else can you say the 90's without Spacehog writing our soundtracks?

An overall wonderful and ecletic mix of songs to "witchen" anyone's mood.
