Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Original soundtrack to the 2010 motion picture features four new songs by Beck under the guise of Sex Bob-omb and two versions of a totally new Beck track. Also on the soundtrack are tracks by indie heroes Broken Social Scene, Beachwood Sparks and Frank Black - alongside classic Rock anthems from stalwarts Rolling Stones and T.Rex plus a stellar inclusion from Britpop kings The Bluetones.

Review

The soundtracks to movies adapted from comic books are often marketing free-for-alls; promoting bands takes precedence over choosing songs that make sense for the film. However, nothing could be further from the truth for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music. Since so much of the comic revolves around the bands that the characters play in, the film was already somewhat protected from having a bunch of random songs crammed into its soundtrack, but the film's creative team ensured that the music was done right. Director Edgar Wright's other films (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, etc.) boast soundtracks that brim with personality onscreen and play more like mixtapes than albums in their own right; that feeling continues here with picks like Beachwood Sparks' "By Your Side," T. Rex's "Teenage Dream," and Frank Black's "I Heard Ramona Sing." The musicians who bring the comic's bands to life are just as cleverly chosen. Beck revisited his slacker-punk roots with the songs he wrote for Scott's band Sex Bob-Omb; though they're performed by Michael Cera and the other actors in the film, "Threshold," "Summertime," and "Garbage Truck" still have Beck's gloriously messy early-`90s vibe to them. Later, he contributes "Ramona," a dreamy ballad that sounds more like his 2000s work. Meanwhile, Broken Social Scene are Crash and the Boys, the rival band whose "I'm So Sad, So Very Very Sad" lasts a whopping five seconds. Every part of the soundtrack shows how much care went into it, from choosing artists like Broken Social Scene and Metric to nod to the story's Canadian setting, to the 8-bit version of "Threshold" that reflects Pilgrim's immersion in video games. The sweetest detail may be the song that started it all: "Scott Pilgrim," by the Canadian all-female band Plumtree from their 1997 album Predicts the Future, holds within it all the breathless true love and crunchy guitar goodness that sparked the comic. Somehow, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music remains true not just to the comic, but to the work of everyone involved in the story at every stage, with plenty of fun and heart to boot. -- All Music, Heather Phares

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but could use some improvement September 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a great soundtrack as others have stated.

However, the version of Black Sheep contained in the album isn't the one used in the film. This is the original version by Metric, not the cover song by the actress for Envy in the movie. I will not speak ill of Metric, but because this is a movie soundtrack, I quite disappointed the movie version of Black Sheep isn't on this album, including all those, "Oh, yeahs."

5.0 out of 5 stars Too good -- don't buy! August 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
DO NOT BUY THIS SOUNDTRACK!. The songs on it are completely awesome. You will listen to them over and over again, evenutally getting several of them stuck in your head all at once. It's very annoying! Just go listen to an album with a bunch of safe, poppy songs, like the Jennifer's Body soundtrack or something.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic but disappointing... January 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Though I love this soundtrack... they left out some REALLY good music.
Firstly, they do not have Matthew Patel's song, which is EPIC.
They also do not have the techno song from Roxy VS Ramona.
Scott VS Todd Base battle is not on it...
There's also music from when he is fighting various other people, such as Gideon, that are not on this CD.
Most of these songs are the reason I WANTED this soundtrack.
BUT, they do have all the Sex-bob-omb songs and The Crash and the Boys stuff.

Still worth the buy- but really sad that they don't have those tracks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome ST for an awesome movie November 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These are most of the songs from the movie.
The end.
Just kidding...there has seldom been such a loving melding of film and music, and the songs, while not always to my taste, are exactly what is needed in the movie when they appear. I found myself rather liking Sex-Bob-Omb, probably because the sloppy crunchiness sort of reminded me of my band in high school, where tightness played back seat to enthusiasm. Not that our songs were written by Beck!
My only complain is that this is not ALL the music. As has been stated in these reviews many times, leaving out Brie Larson's wonderful cover of "Black Sheep" was a major error. And there are two more complete Sex-Bob-Omb songs that are missing. I wish they'd made this more complete, and if they needed room...well, I don't think the world needs another copy of "Under My Thumb".
And many kudos to the cast members who played their own instruments and sang!! Only Cera and Larson had previous experience, and learning to play even basic rock like the Sex-Bob-Omb songs from zero to recorded-and-on-the-soundtrack in just a few months--while learning fighting and wirework and, y'know, acting--gets major respect from me. I wasn't as good on the drums as Pill for at least six months, and that was all I was doing in my spare time (although that may say more about my tragic lack of musical talent than anything else).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Books Have Come To VIVID Sonic Life! August 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
In reading the other posted review, I find it incredibly hard to agree with anything that was stated. Obviously, as with all music, your appreciation for the bands and the music is a completely subjective matter.

I can state, in no uncertain terms, that if you are a fan of the books (which I am, to the point where I have a Ramona Flowers tattoo on my arm!), and if you found even a little bit of enjoyment in watching the TRAILERS (which I have, repeatedly), then this soundtrack will make you incredibly happy. I have not yet seen the film, but I have absolutely no doubt that the music will fit wonderfully, both for the "fake" bands in the movie, and the real ones who have provided music for the soundtrack.

If you feel like reading about WHY this is such a great soundtrack, please check out my official review here:[...]
I hope this helps put to rest any doubts you might have had about checking this soundtrack out. The movie is going to SLAY, the books are phenomenal, and the soundtrack is both a fitting and fantastic addition to the expanding Scott Pilgrim world. And since music is one of the most important things about that world, we should all be rejoicing about the fact that the soundtrack, the bands included (real and fake), and the director of the film are so spot on.

5.0 out of 5 stars First full CD I've bought in a looooooong time August 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listened to the streaming soundtrack and had to have it.
A collection of great songs from various artists as well as new songs by Beck and Sex Bob-omb (Also Beck, I believe). Awesome music to keep me happy til the movie opens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vinyl edition of the soundtrack is a must-have November 12, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
First of all, the soundtrack is great just by a standpoint of song selection and sequencing. The Beachwood Sparks cover of Sade's By Your Side is worth the price of admission alone.

As for the vinyl pressing, it's top notch. Presentation is pretty low-key, there's not much in the way of goodies or pamphlets inside, but the translucent red vinyl looks awesome, and the sound quality is fine. It's a great addition to any record collection.

The film was a great adaptation of the book and really captured it's spirit. This is a book/movie/soundtrack about love and music. All fit together perfectly. This is just enough garage rock to get me going. Beck's work on this project really helped keep the sound where it needed to be. Studio quality with real production value but a sound that emulates that of resourceless garage bands.

Just what the doctor ordered.
