Product Description


Boy from East L.A. meets girl from the "right" side of the tracks. Unfortunately, their relationship is threatened by mediocre music... er, societal pressures. For every worthy, evocative track that the Kirsten Dunst-starring Crazy/Beautiful's CD companion offers, two seem like recordings that a studio suit decided "the kids will relate to": Emiliana Torrini's Björk-lite "To Be Free," the Getaway People's Beck-lite "She Gave Me Love," and Osker's Blink-182-lite "Alright" might work in theaters, but here they just make the listener hope that the movie itself is better written than these leftovers. Save for the Dandy Warhols' "Sleep" (from 2000's masterful Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia) and maybe Fastball's "This Is Not My Life," the album hardly makes a good argument for the continuing validity of guitar rock--and was Seven Mary Three's "Wait" commissioned as a Goo Goo Dolls knockoff or a Bon Jovi homage? Latin hip-hop is better served, with excellent Mellow Man Ace and Delinquent Habits concoctions on board, but rock tunes by La Ley and Serralde are hardly as inspiring. --Rickey Wright

4.0 out of 5 stars Crazy/Beautiful Soundtrack June 2 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I think that the Crazy/Beautiful soundtrack is an accurate collection of the music from the movie (with the exception of David Gray's This Year's Love, which I think should've been inculded). I loved the movie, so whenever I listen to the soundtrack I reminisce about the scenes in which each song was played. I have to say that there are some songs that I do skip over, and with that I can't give this 5 stars. I listen to this cd and become very calm, but it is interupted completely by songs such as, Mellow Man Ace's Ten Le Fe, Osker's Alright and Deliquent Habits' Boulevard Star. I find these songs to ruin the peacfulness and quietness of songs like, I Want To Believe In You, by Lori Carson and Paul Haslinger. There are also some very fun songs like, She Gave Me Love by the Getway People (a personal favorite) and Sumpin' by the Pimps.
Each person of course has a personal opinion about everything, and may like the songs that I didn't and vice versa, but regardless, I would completely and totally advise you to buy this CD!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Average Compilation May 31 2002
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what's wrong with me. Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age because once upon a time -- in my younger, snobbier days -- I would've ripped a cd like this to shreds. Movies depicting teen angst and the tepid soundtracks that accompany them are a dime a dozen, yet somehow Crazy/Beautiful manages to stand out from the pack. Kirsten Dunst must have some powerful mojo to make me run out and buy this thing. Her portrayal of an out of control teenager was both heart-wrenchingly tragic and sublimely touching in all of the right places. I'm a hard-assed *itch, but she's one of the few actors that can make me almost cry.
The soundtrack to this film is virtually flawless in that the songs selected perfectly compliment the actions that were taking place on screen, weaving in and out as needed, without distracting from the actors and dialogue. No high octane MTV-like quick cuts and embolism inducing bass. I do think that Amazon's Reviewer was kind of harsh though. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the majority of people who buy soundtracks aren't fooling themselves into thinking that they'll be treated to mindblowingly original music. Unless you're dealing with an artist of Bjork's calibre, that ain't gonna happen. However, if you're the type of person that likes to listen to a soundtrack to get you in the right mood -- whether it's for dancing/singing along, or daydreaming, or maybe just to remember a movie scene by scene-- then this one is for you. My only gripe is the inexcusable omission of David Gray's song "This Year's Love". It's played at a tender moment in the film and definitely should have been included. Shame on you, Hollywood Records. Cheap tricks like this are the reason music fans will always continue to share files online. RIAA be damned.
P.S. Reuben, the song you're looking for is called "To Be Free" by Emiliana Torrini and it is on this soundtrack.

I saw the movie four times this week since it came out on video Tuesday and I love it. It was a very good teen drama and one of the best and most underrated movies of the year. As soon as I saw the movie I had to rush out and buy the soundtrack and I'm glad I did, it's GREAT. I want to give it 5 stars so bad but I can't because it's missing one of the BEST songs from the movie called "This Years Love" by David Gray. It's an amazing song and I don't see why it wasn't put on the soundtrack. It was a BIG part of the movie and really stood out. The soundtrack is great and features almost every song from the movie but that one. And I do love the soundtrack but I must say I was very disappointed that song wasn't on it. That was a HUGE mistake not to include it. Anyway, if you liked the movie and the music then definately buy the CD, but that song should have been on here and is definately missed. Other than that both the soundtrack and the movie are very good.
I would give the soundtrack ***** but it's missing that song so I must go with ****, but even without that song it is still one of my favorite soundtracks and CD's of the year. Definately buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Atypical review Sept. 10 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While I may not have actually purchased the CD yet per se, I'm determined that I'll love it (and yes, in the full sense of that word; I'm going to cherish an inanimate object) for one simple reason: it's got the track Shattered, by Remy Zero. I've been looking for this incredible song ever since I saw the movie Suicide Kings four years ago. This haunting melody alone is worth twice the number on any CD sticker. I'd drive to whatever no-name, po-dunk, "Bob's Shack O' CDs"-style place I had to, just to get this. To find it here on Amazon, and me with a credit card in hand, well, some things just fall into your lap. Lucky me. It's an unbelievable shame that there isn't a sample of Shattered available here right now, because unless a song that cures cancer and simultaneously teaches me how to dance is on the album, Remy Zero has the best track hands down. I'm exaggerating, yeah, but you'd agree with me if you could just hear the song.
Right now, I'm just glad I finally found it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collective Soul - After All March 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
I know many people who may be searching online are frequent visitors to pages like this, so I wanted to do my good deed for the day to help people who were wondering what song was being played in the airplane scene in Crazy/Beautiful. I saw another post on here referring to that song as Collective Soul's song "Turnaround"... This is wrong. The song is by Collective Soul and is called "After All". It sounds similar to "Turnaround" and is also on Collective Soul's new Cd "Blender" I know at least one person was looking for this info. If you want to hear the song, in the post-Napster age.. you should get Bearshare or another program that runs on the Gnutella network and download until your heart is content. It is a shame that the Collective Soul song and the David Gray song were not included on the Soundtrack, they are both very good songs.
