Sony recently released a patch to mitigate these concerns. However, the patch only addresses the issue of potential virus infection. Uninstalling the software is still nearly impossible, and if attempted incorrectly can render your CD drive unusable.

One thing can be said for Cameron Crowe...his movies might falter a bit (as Elizabethtown unfortunately did) but he knows how to put together a banging soundtrack. Whether you've seen the film or not you'll probably get the urge to take a spontaneous rural road trip, or to sit out back and start up a campfire with friends, or to just chill with someone special. A mix of folk, blues, and country from today and yesteryear this album is a gem that flows from track to track.
The Nancy Wilson theme for the film sets the tone for the cd right off the hop - lots of guitars with a bit of banjo in there as well. Tom Petty's two contributions (Tracks 2 and 14) are heartfelt, relaxed tunes that are among the best on the cd. Elton John follows Petty & The Heartbreakers with a sweeping 70's power ballad, "My Father's Gun", which flows into the dreamy ethereal "This Time Around".
Ryan Adams provides what I feel to be one of the best tracks on the album with "Come Pick Me Up" a slow blues builder with a fantastic chorus - one of the few recongizable from the film. Country inches its way into the blues circle a bit with My Morning Jacket & Patty Griffin's tunes. "Sugar Blue" by Jeff Finlin is up next and takes on a unique modern country sound with a real bluesy vibe to it.
The 21st century is much more apparent on Wheat's "Don't I Hold You" a light-alt-folk-rock offering. Lindsey Buckingham's tune sounds like it was ripped right from the Garden State soundtrack but fits in equally well here. Then we go back in time again with the upbeat Hombres track "Let It Out".Read more ›
From this day forward I will never spend another dime on content that I can't use the way I please. If I can't copy it to my hard drive and play it using the devices I want, when and where I want, I won't be buying it. Period.

This was one of the best movies I'd seen in a while. It was quirky, funny, and sad and quite entertaining. Kirsten Dunst's performance was memorable. Read morePublished 2 months ago by William West
