5.0 out of 5 stars Wicker Park + Garden State = Cool Tunes. 26 Aug 2004
By wunderlost - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
cool songs of obsession and loss. like Garden State, the Wicker Park soundtrack captures a feeling, a feeling we all know. this album isn't just the soundtrack to a film, it could be the soundtrack to your _life_.

the Postal Service track alone is worth the purchase, but once you hear the _flow_ of how seemless this album is, it'll make infinite repeate on your favorite player.

other stand outs are the shins, the stills, death cab for cutie (acoustic), broken social scene (yeah!), and new comers the legends.

if you've heard of any of these bands, and want to check out more like them this album is a great introduction to some of the coolest artists happening at the moment. one could argue that this album, in its own way presents a perfect taste of the new "alternative" scene.

Garden State and Wicker Park are great companion records.

just buy it. you'll love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs, used in the movie but NOT on the soundtrack 6 Mar 2005
By Alena R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i might be mistaken, of course, but i've spotted that the following songs were in the movie, but, for some reason, not on the soundtrack.

So, if anybody is interested:

"Sálfraedingur", "Ég Átto Gráa Aesku", "Ég Sleppi Thér Aldrei" by Jóhann Jóhannsson

Mum - I Can't Feel My Hand Anymore, It's Alright, Sleep Still

The White Stripes - Good to Me

Tito Puente - Ran Kan Kan

Stereophonics - I Miss You Now

Clue to Kalo - This Dies over Distance

5.0 out of 5 stars An indie-rock history lesson worth taking! 26 Aug 2004
By K. B. Random - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The movie doesn't look too great, but the soundtrack is a who's-who of indie bands worth hearing. A rare acoustic track by Death Cab For Cutie ("A Movie Script Ending"), a seldom-heard Shins 7-inch from 2000 ("When I Goosestep"), and nuggets from The Stills, Snow Patrol, Mazzy Star and Broken Social Scene are Cliff Notes of why music still matters. But they're outshined by this collection's incredible highlight: The Postal Service's cover of the Phil Collins classic "Against All Odds". Ever gone to see a movie just for its songs? You might now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who the heck... 2 Sep 2004
By Berta H - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
is Jamie Wyatt??? I love this whole soundtrack. I was expecting a mish-mash of several styles and what I got was a mellow, Indie-Rock treasure chest. Light a couple of candles, relax at home or put it in your car to mellow out the crazy commute, I could listen to it anywhere. One of my favorite songs is Light Switch, written and sung by Jamie Wyatt...I have never heard of her and I want MORE!!! Okay, aside from Jamie, I really dig this whole album. Great job, Lakeshore, for putting it together so well.

5.0 out of 5 stars wordless 10 Jan 2005
By alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I hadn't read none of the reviews and only by looking at the tracklist I was sure this soundtrack was going to be amazing. Well, it goes further than that. I'm simply speechless with the taste, the love that seems to have beeen put in compilating all these mind-blowing tracks.

It's true that it's a good soundtrack to get relaxed with, listening to it at home, lying on your couch but it can also be desperating because of the introspective aura that surrounds it. "All I Do" by +/- is simply haunting, one of those blurring melodies that rises slowly, not arriving to a sonic crescendo, but bringing tears to my eyes everytime I listen to it.

It's this ethereal quality, this moody and hypnotic essence that really makes this cd stand out. It's a long trip, closing at nearly 70 minutes and until you get used to it you might start thinking that you're still on track #7. At least that's what happened to me, but I suddenly felt the urge to repeat it. Coldplay's cover of "The Scientist" closes perfectly the album, and being the original version one of my favourite songs ever, I was delighted with Napolitano and Lohner's approach. As with the original, I love this song not for the inherent sadness it has but for the strange calm it gives you.

Definetely, one of the best albums of the year, no matter 2004 or 2005. Do yourself a favour and discover it.
