Top Customer Reviews
Some popular and vocally blessed songwriters are included here. Among them is Jem, with her pretty lighthearted "Just A Ride," Rachael Yamagata's playful "1963," and Ivy's rollicking love song "Thinking About You." A harder note comes in with Tegan and Sarah's "Walking With A Ghost," but there is also pop wunderkind Nellie McKay's "Won't U Please B Nice?" and Esthero's funky "Everyday is a Holiday With You."
And there's Astaire's dancey, poppy "L-L-Love," one of the less organic songs of the album. A more bluesy note enters near the end, with Magnet's guitar-pop "Where Happiness Lives," Dar Williams' lovely "Beauty of the Rain," and Madeleine Peyroux's piano-jazzy "Don't Wait Too Long."
I'm not sure who chooses the songs for movies like these, but apparently whoever did has some truly excellent taste. Bands like many of these -- especially the jazzier or bluesier artists, are often lacking from movie soundtracks, but they also add a charming delicacy to a very basic-sounding comedy.
Not that this is entirely perfect -- Joss Stone's "Super Duper Love (Are You Diggin' On Me?) Pt. 1" just doesn't fit in with the others. It's not a bad song, not at all, but it seems rather garish beside Yamagata and Ivy. And Rosey, a little-known funk-pop-hop singer, get shortchanged with a remix of "Love." Better to include the original.Read more ›
Anyway,jem's ride is way to overplayed,it's simple,everytime i was attracted by a soundtrack bang right out of the blue here is the song! so with this copy i must say that i have 4 copy of this song!... i love it but enough is enough.
Esthero's new song is very good (i love this band)rachael yamagata's 1963 is one of my favorite song of the CD even if i already have her album,happenstance which i love.the new tegan and sara single is not as good as i expected but it's nice though,but IVY is still on top with their very good song thinking about you,as for magnet and his sweet where happiness lives and dar williams with her beautiful beauty of the rain.Nellie mckay,madeleine peyroux and sara bareilles,whose songs look simillar,offer us a ressucitation of old jazzy-but quite nice sound.Joss stone's super duper love is getting old but still nice to listen to and my crush of the CD ASTAIRE with their love song catchy and very rock'n'roll (can't wait for the album to be available).
Well i think we're done,so don't hesitate,buy this soundtrack because you won't regret it exept for one or two tracks and rush to see the movie on theatre.
