5.0 out of 5 stars I Love it July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
Jon Brion makes me re-think everything that went on in the beautiful movie. Especially "Theme", and Row." They remind me of the movie, and since the movie is so great, this soundtrack makes me feel good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Significant due to Jon Brion's compositions June 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
Jon Brion's compositions on this CD are phenomenally delicate. They possess a kind of ethereal beauty that I have trouble explaining, particularly "Phone Call," "Spotless Mind," "Collecting Things," and "Bookstore." I liken the feeling I get from listening to watching the sun rise, or looking up at rays of light from underwater. While I'm not a fan of some of the other songs on here -- those by The Polyphonic Spree and Willowz especially -- there are a few other gems, like Beck's "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes," and Electric Light Orchestra's more upbeat "Mr. Blue Sky." As some others have said, I think Jon Brion's music could stand alone. Perhaps it would have been a better move to make a score rather than a soundtrack. However, it doesn't dampen the effects of his music -- it's worth the buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing June 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
This music may have been very effective in the movie but it doesn't translate at all well to CD. I like Jon Brion and enjoyed his score for Punch Drunk Love but ultimately I found this soundtrack very dull. It's disappointing since the music was one of the things that really stood out for me in the movie. The main problem is that most of the pieces are too short, a few don't go for more than about ten seconds. This is annoying and doesn't allow you really get a feel for the material. Even the lengthier parts are generally cut off just as they are beginning to get interesting, the best example being track 3 (the name escapes me). The only redeeming features of this soundtrack are the first track, "theme", which is an absolutely lovely piano-based piece (I just wish this would have been repeated in different variations, as is the case with a lot of other soundtracks) and the contribution from Beck. I am a big fan of Beck and it's a really good song, though not as good as anything on his Sea Change Album. Some of the other songs just don't fit in with the mood of the score and it all just adds up to a very uneven listening experience. Make sure you give it a listen before you buy as I'm not sure that it would have much replay value for a lot of listeners.

As I wrote in my review of the movie, Jon Brion's score brilliantly accentuates the scenes in "Eternal Sunshine" without threatening to overshadow them. This is my first introduction to his music, and I'm quite impressed. But beyond that, it is able to stand on its own, as it does on this CD, without moving pictures as its backdrop. How often does that happen?
Favorite tracks include "Theme," "Peer Pressure," "Elephant Parade," "Strings That Tie to You," and "Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes." One star off, though, for the inclusion of the Willowz, which, as others have pointed out, breaks the mood Brion carefully sets up. Five stars otherwise--four, as it is.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a film in a catagory by itself, and same goes for the soundtrack. The soundtrack is really a score (literally) to a brilliantly visual film. This record takes you on a musical journey, just like the euphoric visual effervesence of the film itself. If you liked the film, please as a favor to yourself buy the soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic moments April 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Wonderful. A few of the songs do not mesh as well with the overall atmosphere of the CD, but otherwise, Jon Brion's compositions are innovative and timeless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. April 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack amazes me. I've been listening to it over and over again without tiring. The songs convey the emotion of the movie and the scenes in it, and you can almost see the scenes playing again as it goes. That is how deeply they are tied.
Listening to the soundtrack just makes me feel happy and wistful at the same time.
An excellent listen. I'm not sure if I have a favorite song. Or maybe the entire CD is my favorite song.
