This soundtrack captures the emotional resonance of the movie and extends it beyond the snippets of musical score. Contain some of the best music of the grunge era as well as old favourites, this soundtrack is more than just a piece of merchandise. The product of ex-Soundgarden voaclist, Chris Cornell, the soundtrack sways from heavy to light without frustrating the listener. Contains the only legally available version of Pearl Jam's, State Of Love And Trust, worth the price alone, as well as original music from Chris Cornell. As with the film, the soundtrack highlights the cultural change and the youth that was emerging at the begining of the 90's. This is more than a mere soundtrack,it is the voice of a generation.

I hate this soundtrack. I truly despise it. Why? I'm 15. I missed it all.
Damn.
Other than that it is simply awesome. Thanks to this little gem (and I say gem, both it and the movie are rare as hell on the highstreet) I am a major Pearl Jam fan. And to top it off, this contains two of their greatest songs from the period. "Breath" is simply amazing. What it's about I'll never know (Doors I think; don't ask) but it is amazing. Greatest riff since "Alive". Add to that a few Cornell/Soundgarden numbers along with a spot of Hendrix and even the AIC classic "Would?" (Ironically their most bland and lyrically inferior song ever) and you have a soundtrack to rival anything. And yes, that includes Blues Brothers. This rocks.
Like grunge? You'll love... no, scratch that. You NEED This.

This is not just the perfect soundtrack to the movie "Singles", but to the time and place the movie was made in. This is a Polaroid snapshot of the angst-ridden rock that was pervading the airwaves of America, and to a lesser extent, the rest of the world. Like the songs on the radio playlists at the time, the music on the soundtrack comes predominately from the Pacific Northwest.

It opens with the Alice In Chains tribute to fallen soldier Andrew Wood, "Would?", which was one of the bands biggest hits (though, as is often the case, in no way indicative of their greatest work). The bassline alone signals what is to come. This was one of the few tracks which could be found on other albums.

The next track, "Breath", the first of two on this album by Pearl Jam cannot be found elsewhere (to my knowledge). Both it and "State of Love and Trust" are non-album tracks that should clinch the purchase of this album for any self-respecting Pearl Jam fan.

Chris Cornell's "Seasons" is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard - a pretty little acoustic ditty. I was expecting Chris' solo album to sound more like this, and was quite disappointed when it turned out not to be.

I have to admit to not being particularly enchanted by the Paul Westerburg contributions, but the Lovemongers (aka the Wilson sisters from Heart) put out a thumping version of Led Zep's "Battle of Evermore". Considering I like neither Led Zep nor Heart, I am constantly surprised by how much I enjoy this cover version! It really is good.

"Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns" is probably the best Mother Love Song released. They were a great band, and I love virtually every song I've heard by them, but (sadly) some good did come from Andrew Wood's death.

Grunge was an era, with so many diverse and different bands thrown on the bandwagon. This soundtrack, far superiour to the film, features the best of these bands. From Alice in Chains to Mudhoney, Soundgarden to Smashing Pumpkins. Mother Love Bone, relatively unheard of have a great track on. However, the crowning glory is two superb songs from Pearl Jam in Breath and State of Love and Trust, see's the band at their peak. An absolute must for anyone into the music of that era. The only dissappointment is that there is no trace of Nirvana on the record.

This soundtrack is amongst the very best soundtracks ever in my humble opinion. It is up there with absolute classics like Easy Rider for sheer quality. Nothing on it is weak, nor out of place. The compilation is exceptional and captures a snapshot of an era and as another reviewer eloquently puts it, the soundtrack to a generation. I remember the buzz around this record, not the film, but the soundtrack. It was evident before it even hit the shops that it would be something very, very special. For anyone in my position, 18 years old and into the rock music of the time, this was an absolutely essential purchase. I fondly recall rushing out on release day and picking up a copy with feverish anticipation. I was not to be disappointed.

Whoever put this together literally collected a snippet of the time, a snapshot of what was blazing hot and relevant. It features bands such as Pearl Jam and Soundgarden at their absolute best, just as 'grunge' took off and they were catapulted to massive fame. Cameron Crowe with his rock background clearly had his finger absolutely square on the pulse and grabbed the moment with both hands, at least in terms of the music!

In terms of what is on the album you have a pretty comprehensive selection of the best bands in this genre together with some more off-the-wall and classic stuff. Although it is quite an eclectic selection it is exceptional in its coherence and in taking literally the best many of these bands had to offer.
