ACROSS THE UNIVERSE - MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE

A love story set in the 1960's amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, mind exploration and rock `n roll. Jude (Jim Sturgess) and Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), along with a small group of friends and musicians, are swept up into the emerging anti-war and counterculture movements with "Dr. Robert" (Bono) and "Mr. Kite" (Eddie Izzard) as their guides.

FEATURING SONGS FROM THE GREATEST SONGWRITERS OF ALL TIME, PERFORMED BY THE CAST INCLUDING EVAN RACHEL WOOD, JIM STURGESS, DANA FUCHS, MARTIN LUTHER McCOY, BONO, JOE COCKER AND EDDIE IZZARD

Package art will incorporate stills from pivotal scenes from the movie and a 16-page folder foldout poster with a strawberry image.

First of all, it's very difficult to properly review this soundtrack without seeing the movie. Each song is performed in a particular context ... very creatively, I might add ... and forming an opinion on just the song itself without having the visual that Julie Taymor put with it is not doing yourself, or the creative work, proper credit.

I just saw the movie tonight and it is brilliant. And each song was amazingly portrayed on film. While "Let It Be" was by far my favorite song (as well as gut wrenching scene), I swear I will never hear "Strawberry Fields Forever" in the same way. These songs really MUST be heard with the visual that Julie brilliantly directed. I cannot stress that enough.

This album is not about paying homage to The Beatles as much as it was to use the Beatles music to tell a story. And trust me, that it has done.

Ok so i pre-ordered this b/c i love the beatles and was very excited to get this. Now onto the bad part. The songs are great don't get me wrong...but there are at LEAST 4 missing from this cd in comparison to the DELUX EDITION (available on itunes). For example "Girl" "Dear Prudence" "I want you" and "If i fell" None of those are on this CD, great cd but not the one you want to buy!

I love this movie, so I love the soundtrack, because when I hear the songs I am transported back to my favorite scenes in the film. I think the singing is very well done and I really enjoy these versions of the songs. Normally, I'd say that I don't like them nearly as much as the original versions. That would be true if this was just a collection of Beatle's songs re-done by various artists. However, when we are talking about songs that tell a story in the movie, I have to say I enjoy the songs a lot more and (dare I say it) almost as much as the originals. I guess my point is that, although you may like this st if you haven't seen the movie, I think you will like it more if you have. However, if you do listen to it before seeing the movie, keep an open mind and please realize that, in some instances, the context in which the song is used warrants a rather different version from what you may be used to hearing. Oh, and I'd definitely recommend getting the deluxe version.

Interscope Records has released three variations of soundtrack albums from the film - a standard edition and two deluxe editions. The standard edition contains 16 tracks from the film soundtrack. The first version of the deluxe edition features 31 tracks - all of the vocal performances and one of the three instrumental tracks. This 31-track version is available solely at the Best Buy retail chain and in a digital version via iTunes. A second version of the deluxe edition is available at other retail outlets. The second version differs from the 31-track version in that it omits two tracks: "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" and "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?". The total time for these two missing tracks is 5 minutes.

If you can get the 31-track version without a lot of hassle, then do so, even though the singer of the 2 songs, Dana Fuchs, isn't considered a particularly good singer or actor and the two missing songs aren't highlights. I see no point in buying the 16-song single CD version when for $2 more you get more than 54 minutes of extra music.

The 29-track version is excellent and worth the money. Virtually every song is done in a manner very different from the original by the Beatles and yet it is very enjoyable and tasteful. Great, innovative cover versions, an amazing feat.

A final comment. Interscope Records is to be distained for releasing 2 different Deluxe versions and causing both buyers and sellers a lot of needless decision making problems. Obviously Best Buys made some marketing arrangement with Interscope Records but it won't generate enough extra cash to compensate for all of the bad PR and angst that this will generate.
