Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Includes exclusive, rare & non-album tracks from The Postal Service, Lifehouse, Death Cab For Cutie, & The Shins plus songs from Snow Patrol, Stereophonics, Mum, +/-, The Stills, Mazzy Star, & more.

Amazon.com

If one needs a compelling introduction to the emotional gravitas that too often gets overlooked in fashion-obsessed indie and modern rock circles, this largely introspective song-score compilation may be just the ticket. Like its spiritual '04 twin, Garden State, it's a collection that eschews attitude for mature reflection via expected contributors like The Shins, Stereophonics and Mazzy Star, an oblique, obligatory cover or two (Postal Service's seductive reworking of Phil Collins' "Against All Odds"; Jackson Browne's "These Days" in an alt.pretty take by Mates of State) yet achieves other compelling moments from newcomers (the straightforward torchiness of Jaime Wyatt's "Light Switch") and veterans (Johnette Napolitano and Danny Lohner's stark, gritty acoustic reworking of Coldplay's "Scientist") alike. Other standouts range from the hip, hypno-spacey murk of "We Have a Map of the Piano" by Mum to the crafty, Beatle-esque pop of Lifehouse's "Everybody is Someone." --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicker Park + Garden State = Cool Tunes. August 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
cool songs of obsession and loss. like Garden State, the Wicker Park soundtrack captures a feeling, a feeling we all know. this album isn't just the soundtrack to a film, it could be the soundtrack to your _life_.

the Postal Service track alone is worth the purchase, but once you hear the _flow_ of how seemless this album is, it'll make infinite repeate on your favorite player.

other stand outs are the shins, the stills, death cab for cutie (acoustic), broken social scene (yeah!), and new comers the legends.

if you've heard of any of these bands, and want to check out more like them this album is a great introduction to some of the coolest artists happening at the moment. one could argue that this album, in its own way presents a perfect taste of the new "alternative" scene.

Garden State and Wicker Park are great companion records.

just buy it. you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs, used in the movie but NOT on the soundtrack March 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
i might be mistaken, of course, but i've spotted that the following songs were in the movie, but, for some reason, not on the soundtrack.

So, if anybody is interested:

"Sálfraedingur", "Ég Átto Gráa Aesku", "Ég Sleppi Thér Aldrei" by Jóhann Jóhannsson

Mum - I Can't Feel My Hand Anymore, It's Alright, Sleep Still

The White Stripes - Good to Me

Tito Puente - Ran Kan Kan

Stereophonics - I Miss You Now

Clue to Kalo - This Dies over Distance

5.0 out of 5 stars An indie-rock history lesson worth taking! August 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The movie doesn't look too great, but the soundtrack is a who's-who of indie bands worth hearing. A rare acoustic track by Death Cab For Cutie ("A Movie Script Ending"), a seldom-heard Shins 7-inch from 2000 ("When I Goosestep"), and nuggets from The Stills, Snow Patrol, Mazzy Star and Broken Social Scene are Cliff Notes of why music still matters. But they're outshined by this collection's incredible highlight: The Postal Service's cover of the Phil Collins classic "Against All Odds". Ever gone to see a movie just for its songs? You might now.

5.0 out of 5 stars wordless January 10, 2005
By alex
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't read none of the reviews and only by looking at the tracklist I was sure this soundtrack was going to be amazing. Well, it goes further than that. I'm simply speechless with the taste, the love that seems to have beeen put in compilating all these mind-blowing tracks.

It's true that it's a good soundtrack to get relaxed with, listening to it at home, lying on your couch but it can also be desperating because of the introspective aura that surrounds it. "All I Do" by +/- is simply haunting, one of those blurring melodies that rises slowly, not arriving to a sonic crescendo, but bringing tears to my eyes everytime I listen to it.

It's this ethereal quality, this moody and hypnotic essence that really makes this cd stand out. It's a long trip, closing at nearly 70 minutes and until you get used to it you might start thinking that you're still on track #7. At least that's what happened to me, but I suddenly felt the urge to repeat it. Coldplay's cover of "The Scientist" closes perfectly the album, and being the original version one of my favourite songs ever, I was delighted with Napolitano and Lohner's approach. As with the original, I love this song not for the inherent sadness it has but for the strange calm it gives you.

Definetely, one of the best albums of the year, no matter 2004 or 2005. Do yourself a favour and discover it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who the heck... September 2, 2004
By Berta H
Format:Audio CD
is Jamie Wyatt??? I love this whole soundtrack. I was expecting a mish-mash of several styles and what I got was a mellow, Indie-Rock treasure chest. Light a couple of candles, relax at home or put it in your car to mellow out the crazy commute, I could listen to it anywhere. One of my favorite songs is Light Switch, written and sung by Jamie Wyatt...I have never heard of her and I want MORE!!! Okay, aside from Jamie, I really dig this whole album. Great job, Lakeshore, for putting it together so well.

4.0 out of 5 stars loved the soundtrack - soundtrack of my life January 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
okay...despite alot of comments...i loved the soundtrack.
not only was the music great but it reminded me of my own life. in december of 2004, i found out my cousin's best friend was seeing my boyfriend and my cousin never told me about it. so the movie was very therapeutic for me, as was the soundtrack since i have a new boyfriend who thinks more fondly upon me.
"we all have a map of the piano" is the song that plays while "Lisa" is dancing at the Chicago Dance School. and its downright beautiful. And there are great songs on here like "The Scientist"...the original by Coldplay is better to me, and Aqualung do a great job on "Strange and Beautiful". Overall I was very impressed and moved by the film and the music. I walked passed it several times at my local video store, but I finally decided to rent it on a Friday night...and i thought it was great.

the movie kept you going from start to finish and there is a great twist the won't leave any romance movie watcher unsatisfied. 4 words: great movie,great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any Shins, Postal Service fan August 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Wicker Park soundtrack delivers some truly refreshing and emotional tracks that only add to the film. Even if you haven't seen the film or are not planning on seeing the film this is a must have soundtrack album for any Shins or Postal Service fan. Wicker Park delivers some new and rare tracks from these great bands and is a definite must have for any indie or alternative music fan!
