Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Original Motion Picture soundtrack for the new romantic comedy starring Jennifer Garner. After losing her fiancé in a tragic accident during his bachelor party, a would-be widow (Jennifer Garner) struggles to sort through the secrets he kept from her as she adjusts to her new life. Erin Brockovich screenwriter, Susannah Grant, makes this her directorial debut. Great, prominent soundtrack features Foo Fighters, The Magic Numbers, Death Cab For Cutie & More! A collection of songs with all the charm, allure and energy of the Garden State soundtrack.
Composers: BT; Tommy Stinson.
The soundtrack to Jennifer Garner's charming romantic comedy sounds like a who's who of the subtler indie rock on offer around the early 2000s. The well-chosen contributions include the Foo Fighters' acoustic "Razor," which conjures memories of Nick Drake, and the British band the Magic Numbers' perky slice of pop psychedelia, "Mornings Eleven." There's also a shout-out to indie artists of yesteryear courtesy of the Lemonheads' "My Drug Buddy," and an appearance by the Replacements' legendary leader Paul Westerberg, whose fatalistic "Let the Bad Times Roll" has a certain ring of truth, while the U.K. band the Doves strip down their characteristically larger-than-life sound for the charmingly understated "There Goes the Fear."
