One of the best soundtracks I've come across
on May 27, 2014
First things first, I'm a huge fan of John Green and The Fault in Our Stars. I'm a Nerdfighter. I've known about this movie since last year and I've been dying to see it and hear the music for the movie. That being said, when I finally heard about the soundtrack, I was nervous. I didn't know what songs would be chosen and how they would fit in with the tone of this movie (even though I haven't seen it yet, but I've read the book a few times so I have a feeling I know what the tone is). I've always had trouble with soundtracks because I haven't found a single one where I've liked every song. I'm pretty picky with my music.
So I purchased this soundtrack and wow. Just wow. The case itself (or the one I got) has the movie cover on it, like the picture shows. Inside the booklets are image stills from the movie with some popular quotes from the book. And the CD is adorable: blue with "Okay Okay" on it. Now, as for the actual music, I've made it through every song on the CD once, and I have to say that I like all of them. Sure, there are some that I like more than others, but I feel that way about every CD I buy. And I do feel that some songs capture the tone of this movie/book more so than others ("Not About Angels" by Birdy will give you a massive case of the feels). But I do like all the songs because they each bring something that fit The Fault in Our Stars so perfectly. If you're nervous that perhaps you might not like the CD, then I recommend finding the songs on YouTube or another website where you can sample them and judge them for yourself. But I would recommend this CD, hands down, to anyone who loved the book or loves the movie. Because of this CD, I'm more excited to see this movie than before and I was already bouncing off the walls in excitement.
