a soundtrack of unlimited beauty
on 15 January 2001
I felt compelled to write this review after reading the bland, unconstructive criticism of the other reviews. Yes, perhaps you should buy the original score if you want to OD on Thomas Newman's haughting but exceptional incidental music, but the diversity of this soundtrack echoes the aims of the movie. From the classic rock of Free to the indie brilliance of Gomez through the unnerving beauty of Elliot Smith, each track conjures images of one of the greatest insights into modern (American) suburbia, and defines each characters taste and aspirations.
If you enjoyed every second of the movie and you're a true music fan, you'll love this CD.
