Yeah so I haven’t actually seen the film, so I cannot comment how the soundtrack complements the movie (but lets face it, the majority of people who purchase this CD are doing so for the sole reason that it contains new Polyphonic Spree music).
So you get about 13 Poly band tracks, a couple of Tim Delaughter solo acoustic songs, couple of instrumentals & the two Elliott Smith songs.
Most of music has a short, work-in-progress, demo feel to it (apart from “Acceptance” which clocks in at a whopping 30 minutes, but is quite a good song, consisting of a single acoustic guitar riff, accompanied by various other musical instruments coming & going throughout the half hour).
The simplicity of a lot of the songs is quite a nice contrast to the usual OTT of the bands music (if you got 25 members, you don’t really have much of a choice), although it is a little frustrating that some of the songs are underdeveloped.
Highlight for me would be the 2 versions of “Move Away & Shine” which are strong enough to feature on any of the bands proper albums.
So if you have the rest of the Polyphonic Spree’s back catalogue, this record is defiantly strong enough to include, & not just to complete the collection, good.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can have all you ever want in a dream. 16 Sept. 2005
By Galador42 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
According to the liner notes, Thumbsucker director Mike Mills was working with songwriting genius Elliott Smith on the songs for the movie when Smith passed away. Months later, while struggling with the editing of the movie and the aftermath of Smith's death, Mills attended a Polyphonic Spree concert that changed and moved him so much that he sought out Tim DeLaughter of The Spree and signed him to finish the musical score to the film. "The Spree saved Thumbsucker," says Mills.

The album has a lush score representing Tim DeLaughter and The Polyphonic Spree at their very best, from the powerful and jubilant single "Move Away and Shine" to the sublime and mellow "Acceptance" (which rolls out comfortably for thiry minutes), punctuated with several songs by the late Elliott Smith.

Usually I leave the movie theater wanting to get the soundtrack, but now it's the other way around. This score makes me want to see the movie, as I'm sure it has to be something very special.

5.0 out of 5 stars genius music for a genius film 31 July 2006
By kevin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I find it extremely irritating when a reviewer with limited knowledge of a film (or, even worse, when a reviewer hasnot watched the film) takes it upon themselves to trash a soundtrack. The qualms I have with this practice are purely due to my aesthetical opinion: certain films require certain types of soundtracks. Some films, like Almost Famous and Snatch, work best with track lists full of imposing titles and in such a circumstance the music, for a moment or two, becomes the focus of the film. In films like Lost in Translation and Thumbsucker, the music never takes a dominant role over the film itself; instead it plays the role of a constant emotional supplement, accurately and beautifully rendering the action on screen through sound. The soundtrack, to any who has watched Thumbsucker, is an amazing work of art and a case study in complementing an amazing film with amazing, yet not overbearing, music. Any viewer, any fan, and any colleague of Mike Mill's will have the same positive reaction to this soundtrack after watching the great film it supports. Reviewers who review soundtracks without watching the movies they stem from, take note: this album was intended as a complement to great film, not a compilation made at the director's whim...I sincerely challenge you to watch the movie and claim that these songs, soaking in emotion, are dry and banal!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbsucker and A Tribute To Elliott Smith make me a happy guy! 5 Oct. 2005
By Dave Dickerson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Just picked this up with A Tribute To Elliott Smith here on Amazon and I am glad I did! The Elliott tracks on Thumbsucker are manna from heaven for a Smith fan (obviously) but the Polyphonic Spree stuff is really growing on me as well. Can't wait to see this movie - with music like this in it you can't go wrong.
I also ordered A Tribute To Elliott Smith since Amazon recommended it and I am overjoyed with it as well. This was indeed a good week to be an Elliott Smith fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elliott Smith fans shouldn't think twice. 2 Oct. 2005
By Tristan C. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Elliott Smith's two covers on this album are probably the most delicate beautiful songs I've ever heard in my life. Cat Steven's "trouble" is so fitting to the last moments of his life, it nearly brings tears to my eyes. If you are a fan of Elliott Smith, you cannot live without these two songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Match 5 Oct. 2005
By Alex M. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Polyphonic Spree and my all-time favorite, Elliott Smith, are perfect together on the soundtrack to such a great film. Worth picking up just for the cover of "Trouble." "Move Away and Shine" is another highlight.
