[T]hese heartfelt retro collages call on a superstar guest list to evoke pop fashion of every era from the '30s to now. They call it a "fake oldies record", but there's nothing bogus about the raw emotion poured into soaring doo-wop gospel wailer I Want Someone Badly by Jeff Buckley, or in Cardigans singer Nina Persson's spine-tingling yodels on Appalachian Lullaby. -- New Musical Express

The movie wasn't much, but the soundtrack's great. It's got a bunch of really cool, unusual songs on it. It's really good at setting a mood. An absolute must for Jeff Buckley and Shudder to Think Fans. "I Want Someone Badly" is probably one of the most stunning examples of Jeff Buckley's vocal abilities. His voice was out of this world.

After over 10 years on the music scene, Shudder to Think actually join forces with the likes of Billy Corgan, Jeff Buckley, Liz Phair and John Doe. Pure pop tunes that at times take me back to the 60's age of pop. Almost all of the songs are beautifully crafted. Only thing is, this cd clocks in at about 35 minutes or so.

I loved this - I've always liked Shudder To Think a lot, but never thought they quite pulled off expressing themselves completely on a record. These songs are completely varied in style, but the underlying essence is all STT, right down to their wicked lyrics. I also was pleased that the guest vocalists are not all people whose bands I really care for, but I really enjoyed them here. "Erecting A Movie Star" rams itself into my brain every time I put this on - it's an awesome power-pop song, and Liz Phair sounds great backed by the STT vocals. "Day Ditty" with Angela McClusky is lovely, that one guy really does sound just like Neil Diamond, John Doe is the king of heartbreak and twang, and Jeff Buckley is straight from the soul. The styles of music they borrowed from are all favorites of mine, but it doesn't sound like rehashed 50's hit parade - the stylings are all STT.

after seeing shudder to think live, supporting pearl jam last february, they... well - they weren't very good. however, enter the 'first love, last rites' soundtrack, and we have a winner, for sure - with a little help from their friends (namely jeff buckley, liz phair and billy corgan), shudder to think produce a great bag of songs which are much easier to recieve than previous works - definitely the high point of the 'first love, last rites' movie too.

Jeff admired this band and it's no wonder. There are brains behind this music and a sense of humor. Some of it is even very pretty to listen to. Listen with an open mind and play it a few times to see what I mean.

The post-punk, musicians-as-artists, group Shudder to Think have again presented a project that keeps them from easily being classified or humbly approached by waywarded altrock kids. STT bring together some of the most talented and original voices in rock music today, while managing to craft for each voice a song that wholly complements it. Jeff Buckley appears on the gem "I want someone badly" (certainly to make his female fans swoon), Liz Phair provides her vocals for the tongue-in-cheek "Erecting a movie star", and Billy Corgan throws his high-pitched voice into the album's only punk song "When I was born, I was bored". Now these three are the "big names" that appear with STT, however the best tracks on the album are those with lesser know friends. "Automatic Soup" gives us a glimpse of STT doing their best Spent Poets impersonation. Lena Karlsson sings "The Wedding is Over" as though Dion Warwick was there listening in herself. "Just really want to see you" provides us with humour and Alan Sparhawk sounding like a 90's Neil Diamond. And I defy anyone who would dare claim that Nina Persson's vocals on "Appalachian Lullaby" aren't haunting and beautiful. All in all Shudder to Think has put together a soundtrack that reinvents the teen rock of the 50's & 60's. If there's going to be a band that re-presents the music of those decades it should be STT. They pull it off without sounding like retro-posers or art-f**s on parade.
