On this particular album, the first five tracks are a mix of simple jazz, folk, and generally soft moody tunes. The last five tracks, however, are all performed by John Frusciante - Gallo's friend and collaborator.
The tracks performed by Frusciante apparently don't appear in the movie. According to Gallo, he listened to Frusciante's music extensively during the creative phases of the movie - including the actual filming. He was inspired by the music.
Understandably so. Frusciante's songs create a mood that one might describe as aching. Regardless, the guitar-work is profound. His choice of notes, along with the vintage tones that he and Gallo are both known for, produce a lasting effect. Frusciante's voice is an instrument in and of itself. His falsetto vocals aren't for everyone - they're an acquired taste. Either way, his vocals match well with the music, producing a remarkable package that should be enjoyed by all.
This soundtrack can hold its own against the best of them. If you like unique music that relates sadness or loneliness - this album is for you.
