Mostly consisting of incidental music by Jon Brion but with other tracks littered throughtout, this OST is a work of haunting beauty. A mixture of ear pricking eerieness and frantic dream like sequences make this a constant delight. Worth owning just for the brilliant reworking of the Korgi's 'Everybody's got to learn sometime' by Beck though.

I would recommend knowing the movie well before you consider purchasing this as it is one of those soundtracks that is probably best appreciated as a companion. Enjoy.

33 of 36 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. M. Brown on 8 Jun. 2004
Format: Audio CD
Whilst the quality of the material in this collection is consistently high, Jon Brion's intimate, melancholic score fights to compete for mind-space with the contributions from other artists rather than merging seamlessly as they did they on screen. This is undeniably effective in creating an evocative, emotionally chaotic listen - deliberately trying to recall the films cut and paste style - but one feels that if the two disparate elements had been given separate CDs to strut their stuff they would have been easier to listen to. That said, it's a fault that can be overlooked and it doesn't change the fact that what music does exist on the CD beautifully captures the various themes of the film.
After opening the album with Brion's "Theme", a warm, multifluous track, we have ELO's little-known gem "Mr. Blue Sky", from their mediocre 1977 album 'Out of the Blue'. Used on the trailers, it's a brilliant Beatle-esque summation of the films quirky charms, and Gondry's direction. The Polyphonic Spree make two entries on the album, though "Light & Day" is the more fitting song, the latter "It's the Sun" lacking the emotional complexity of the film's narrative.
The songs that work best are those that Brion had a hand in: Beck's cover of the Korgis' 1980 hit "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime" reworked especially for the film, and his own "Strings that Tie to You" a plaintive track that flirts with the idea of romance, nostalgia and memories.

Jon Brion's compositions for the film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" are brilliant. They crop up all of the time on tv and adverts but that shouldn't put anyone off as they are inspired. I love them and I so wish they were all joined up into one long composition. Jon Brion's tunes are edgy, emotive and unique - it just leaves me wanting more. Other non-Brion highlights are Wada Na Tod (Lata Mangeshkar) and Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime (Beck). A great cd.
