The Most Underrated Soundtrack of '99,
This review is from: American Pie: Music From The Motion Picture (Audio CD)
I bet the first thing people noticed when the bought the soundtrack was "Where's Barenaked Ladies' One Week? or Hole's Celebrity Skin? or even Oleander's I Walk Alone?"
Believe me, I said the same thing. But the soundtrack is still a good one. Tonic leads the way with the only track to hit the airwaves with "You Wanted More". That song was the whole reason why I bought the CD. But after awhile the soudtrack was a pretty good one. One artist that was Bic Runga's Sway which you may have heard from the Lilth Fair Samplers/Albums they gave out at the festival. Blink 182's Mutt was a good track which resembles their old tunes compared to their recent ones. Dishwalla, Super Transatlantic, and Shades Apart added some great songs that made this soundtrack a good one.
As you may notice most of these performers are under the Universal label and out to look for exposure ( which worked with me, I now follow Bic Runga and Super Transatlantic's work).
To pretty much sum it all up, I was dissapointed that all the songs in the first paragrah were not in the album but with the unheard bands with catchy and soft tunes made up for it! Good soundtrack to listen to and I highly recommend it!
