Product Description

Product Description

Fox Searchlight Picture's February 2008 coming-of-age comedy Juno, directed by Jason Reitman (Thank You For Smoking). The narrative centers on whip-smart Juno (Ellen Page, in a breakthrough role), a teenage girl faced with an unplanned pregnancy from an afternoon with the charmingly unassuming Bleeker (Michael Cera). Juno finds her unborn baby the perfect set of parents in Mark and Vanessa Loring (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner), an affluent suburban couple who are eager to adopt. Along with the total support of her parents, (Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons) Juno conquers her problems head-on, displaying a youthful exuberance that is both smart and unexpected. The film was an official selection at 2007's Telluride, Toronto, and London film festivals and received the Best Film award at the Rome International Film Festival. The soundtrack to Juno mixes classic rock favourites with indie-rock gems.

Amazon.co.uk

New York singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson may be familiar to many, seeing as her existing infamy is based on being one half of acerbic so-called 'anti-folk' duo The Moldy Peaches who made ripples around the turn of the century with taboo-provoking pared-down romps against this, that and the other. It might be a surprise to find her ramshackle and largely solo performances heading up a film soundtrack, but to Juno's independence and understated qualities she turns out to be a remarkably good fit. She's mellowed a little with age perhaps, but then to counter that claim take the track "Loose Lips"; she rallies through a nonchalant stream-of-consciousness rant against such adversaries as President Bush, the Iraq war and self-harm/suicide, curling out blunt matter-of-fact lines like "call me up before you're dead, we can make some plans instead," that in the simple is as simple does context she provides resonate beautifully. Hardly lightweight then, but far from coarse or unwieldy. Like the film itself, she handles issues with straightforward clarity, an ambling pace and effortless humour. And to complete the soundtrack, a couple of typically twee compositions from Belle & Sebastian, The Kinks' "A Well Respected Man", Sonic Youth's excellently woozy cover of The Carpenter's "Superstar", the Velvet Underground's daft as elastic "I'm Sticking with You" and Cat Power (the queen of ramshackle) with the fragile "Sea of Love", make this a delightfully humbling listen. --James Berry

Well for the first time in my life, i went to see a movie because i had heard the soundtrack. This in my opinion is an amazing album although of course different people have different taste, saying that however i didn't know i was into this type of music until now. The Juno Sountrack is one of the finest things i've added to my music collection in a long time and since i recieved it last week it has not been off. I find myself singing the songs as i go about my business, and as the lyrics come from my mouth a smile can't help but form.

What i love about alot of the songs is the way in which they have been recorded, they sound like they are sitting on the couch in the same room as you, singing and strumming their guitars, and for you guitar players out there, the songs are so easy to learn and you WILL find yourselves playing along.

There are also songs in there from the likes of 'the kinks' and 'buddy holly' which add to the wide variety of talent shown in the album. For me though, the song played in the opening credits 'All i want is you' by barry louis polisar is my favorite, such an amazing opening to the album and indeed the film.

Anyways this i think is my first ever review, i hope i've been helpfull...

Buy this album.

This film, and the soundtrack, are both going to develop a huge, so-cutting-edge-it-bleeds cult following, and I absolutely understand why. Many of the songs on this album are very reminiscent of nursey rhymes - happy and innocent music that makes you smile. Kimya Dawson features heavily... which adds an undercurrent of cynicism to the whole thing, but it's not necessary to get embroiled in all of that. She's an inordinately talented singer/songwriter, and her disdain for this genre of music has resulted in her unintentionally creating something wonderful. Take a pinch of grass-roots folk, add a dash of nursery rhyme simplicity, and this is what you get.

It's music for girls in vintage summer dresses and plastic sunglasses and flip-flops who stand with their toes pointing inwards and hold a pink gerbera daisy in their left hand.

Tracks that stand out are I'm Sticking With You by Velvet Underground, and Anyone Else But You by The Moldy Peaches, which is Kimya Dawson's band. A lovely added bonus is Ellen Page and Michael Cera's (the two teenage stars of the film) rendition of the latter. It's a lo-fi triumph; adorable and shy and bound to make you grin from ear to ear. I'm Sticking With You is just a beautifully understated track. It continues the nursery rhyme theme with its lilting melody and lovely lyrics: "I'm sticking with you; cos I'm made out of glue/ Anything that you might do, I'm gonna do, too." It's delightful.

Anyone Else But You is much the same in terms of the atmosphere it creates - retro, lazy Summer afternoons holding hands with someone you adore.

The whole album is gentle, with the only "edge" coming from Mot the Hoople's (soft glam rock) All the Young Dudes and Sonic Youth's (almost ambient) Superstar.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 13 Jan. 2008
Format: Audio CD
"Juno" is the little indie movie that could, for this year -- an enchantingly witty story about a teenage girl who gets pregnant, and the smart decisions she has to make for everyone's sakes.

It's a smart, sweet, poignantly funny little movie, and that gets echoed in the "Juno" soundtrack. Like many a soundtrack over the past few years, it's got a great assortment of artists -- everything from classic rockers to Scottish mope-popsters. It's a warm folky little affair that leaves you with a wistful little smile at the end.

"If I was a flower growing wild and free/all I'd want is you to be my sweet honeybee/And if I was a tree growing tall and green/all I'd want is you to shade me and be my leaves," Barry Louis Polisar warbles over a strummed guitar and spurts of harmonica. For the record, this kind of music usually gives me hives, but the cheerful, fun flavour of it somehow made it palatable.

After a "doo-doo-doo" interlude by Kimya Dawson, the soundtrack bounces into the sprightly Kinks tune "A Well Respected Man." From there, the soundtrack slips smoothly into a series of folky pop tunes -- Buddy Holly's mellow "Dearest," a Mateo Messina song that is basically one minute of strummed guitar, Cat Power's poignant little folk ballad, Antsy Pants' bouncy little pop tunes ("I am a vampire! I am a vampire!"), and the Moldy Peaches' countryish "Anyone Else But You."

Kimya Dawson is the overpowering influence in this soundtrack -- including the "doo-doo-doo" interlude, she contributes five songs of rambling, quirky pop ("I was quiet as a mouse/when I snuck into your house/and smoked roofies with your spouse...").

For those who don't know, "Juno" is an award winning comedy featuring Juno (played by Ellen Page), a teenage girl faced with an unplanned pregnancy from an afternoon with Bleeker (Michael Cera from TVs "Arrested Development"). Juno finds her unborn baby the perfect set of parents in Mark and Vanessa Loring (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner), an affluent suburban couple who are eager to adopt. The film was an official selection at 2007's Telluride, Toronto, and London film festivals and received the Best Film award at the Rome International Film Festival.

Which means we're talking a total indie fest. The indie royalty are here with Belle & Sebastian alongside non-ironic covers from Sonic Youth and Cat Power and a song from the Velvet Underground. For the dads in the audience you get some Mott the Hoople and Kinks, with Buddy Holly in there for the stray gran who's wandered in on pensioners half price day.

Then there's the left field corner, largely taken up by Kimya Dawson, solo, with the Moldy Peaches and her new group Antsy Pants taking up 8 of the 19 tracks on offer. Heck, even the movie leads have a bash at a Moldy Peaches tune with Ellen Page and Michael Cera crooning away on 'Anyone Else But You'. Obviously, without seeing the movie, it's hard to tell how well the soundtrack works as an actual soundtrack, but as a compilation album, it certainly fulfills the criteria of a Best of Indie selection, hands down.

This became the fastest selling album on the iTunes music store, when it was released in America and makes the perfect present for the slightly fey, ever so put upon, sociology student in your life.
