Perhaps the most underrated soundtrack of 2003. Before hearing this I was only somewhat familiar with the music of Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields, but while viewing "Pieces of April" at the movie theatre last November, I was instantly taken with this beautiful soundtrack and its striking relevance to the scenes in the film. Songs like "One April Day" by Stephin Merritt (written specifically for the film) speak for themselves: pure musical integrity with minimal instrumentation and arrangements that are in perfect harmony with the film. My other personal favorite is "Heather Heather" by the Magnetic Fields for its dark, desperate lyrics and eerie sound. The quality of the music & songwriting in this soundtrack is immediately recognizable (and, after hearing this, I now plan to familiarize myself with all of his music). Fan or not, don't take my word for it, check this one out.
