CD includes thirteen tracks that highlight some of the most prominent and emerging female musicians to date. The soundtrack to Monster-In-Law contains an eclectic mix of Grammy winners/nominees such as Joss Stone and Nellie McKay, to buzzworthy artists like Astaire and Rachel Yamagata. From Madeleine Peyroux's jazzy 'Don't Wait Too Long', and Tegan and Sara's acoustic anthem 'Walking With A Ghost', the soundtrack to Monster- In- Law is the perfect mix tape that will surely stand the test of time. New Line. 2005.
Its not exactly Oscar bait, but the romantic comedy Monster-In-Law
is still a valuable artistic undertaking--from a musical perspective, that is. In a just world, acts like Tegan and Sara, Ivy, and Rachael Yamagata wouldnt need Hollywood to expand their audience, but in our universe it helps. In return, this talented, mostly-female collection of vocalists, have made "Monster-In-Law" one of the best compilations of the year. Virtually every track on this album is a homerun, from "Won't U Please B Nice" (trademark bite from Nellie McKay) to "Don't Wait Too Long" from rising jazz titan Madeleine Peyroux. Sara Bareilles "Love on the Rocks," is a piece of pop so addictive that it will almost certainly land you in musical rehab. What more is there to say? Monster-In-Law
proves true love can exist
with a soundtrack. --Leah Weathersby
