Effortlessly blending all of the all-stars of the early 1990s Seattle scene except Nirvana, recorded JUST before they broke into the international music consciousness, "Singles" is both an amazing snapshot of a point in time and a great companion piece for fans of that music.
Songs unavailable elsewhere from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Chris Cornell, Smashing Pumpkins and Mother Love Bone is something of a dream come true for many music fans, and what's especially nice is that there's no filler anywhere on this album. Even lesser lights like The Lovemongers turn in great tunes, such as the band's rocking cover of Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore."
Sticking out as not being part of the Seattle scene is post-Replacements Paul Westerberg, but his two songs -- the only performer on the album to do two, although Chris Cornell performs both with and without Soundgarden -- are probably the best tunes in the collection.
While this makes a great companion piece to the movie, which features music quite strongly -- one scene even features a character stopping the action so his girlfriend (and the audience) can listen to a good section of Jimi Hendrix's "May This Be Love" (included on the soundtrack) -- it stands alone as simply a great album as well.
My strongest possible recommendation for fans of early 1990s rock music.
The biggest downside to this CD is the 2 songs by Paul Westerberg. I heard them and almost thought that they were a joke. Both of those songs are extremly poppy, with the chorus of Dylexic Heart being "na, na na na, na, na na na na na".
With that said having 11 out of the 13 songs is still good and all of the other songs make up for it. I would suggest this CD to any fan of the "grunge" area, any rock music from the early 90's, or being a fan of any of the bands stated above (besides paul westerberg. This is the only soundtrack i have ever thought of buying and i never regretted it. (The minus one star is for the 2 paul westerberg songs)

The Grundge era of the early 90s was a wonderful time for me, growing up as a teen. The music, album and movie were great. I still love the grunge music from that time period. Read morePublished on Feb. 20 2004 by Mike S.
