first of all, the movie was just plain lame. if you thought "kids" was genious you'll love it, but if you've got commen sense don't waste your time.
that said, don't let the bad movie fool you. the soundtrack is pretty good. it starts off with a cover of X's "the unheard music" that unlike most covers, actually does it justice.
track two (bee bee's girl, sonic youth) is by far my favorite and the reason i wanted to hunt down this album. it's a mellow, simple song that despite not seeming to be very catchy will get stuck in your head for days.
the rest of it is decent as well, but some of the songs i could do without. i get bored with bands that scream through thier songs.
all in all, it's decent. even though the album cover makes me cringe it's worth a listen. it's one of those albums you won't listen to often; you'll save it for those days when you're feeling completely bored and cynical.

Aside from the praise that this soundtrach deservedly gets, with cool bands like Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers and Flaming Lips, the only bad song that sticks out is a really uninspired UNKLE song. Why choose this song, a tune that I can't remember in the film, to Ministry's excellent 'NWO' which was really prominent? These are slim pickings though, because the soundtrack is amazing nonetheless!!

Good tunes, new ones I've never heard of. Gooders, for sure. I liked the movie, not enough to own it but the soundtrack is worth owning, so DO IT! I did. It's a mix from the 90's.

Get it straight March 1 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SubUrbia (1997), directed by Richard Linklatter, is NOT a remake of the 80's movie of the same name. It has NOTHING to do with it. That aside, it is a decent film with an awesome soundtrack. Unlike most rock soundtracks which try to include as many "current" or "hot" artists like the Scream soundtrack and all the movies that followed it, SubUrbia tries to capture a feel. Like the charcters in the movie who graduated high school back in the early half of the ninties and are still living in it, the soundtrack includes tracks from Sonic Youth, the Butthole Surfers, the Flaming Lips, and others who hit their peaks back in the day too. However, this is not a lame comeback album for anyone. From the opening Elastica track (with vocals from stephen Malkmus (sic) from Pavement) to the simply awesome "Sunday" by Sonic Youth, this album is all killer, no filler. And they even had the guts to end it all with Gene Pitney singing "Town Without Pity". Definitely one of the best soundtracks of the decade, and even though two of the songs aren't even from the nineties, one of the best soundtracks TO the decade.

it's just a good rock album June 9 1999
By jkgst12@pitt.edu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
man, this is awesome! i couldn't stand the movie. don't watch it--turn this into the soundtrack for your own life. "Feather in Your Cap" has got to be my all-time favorite Beck song. This version of "Sunday" is perfect, as is "Bee-Bee's Song". and then to end with "Town without Pity"? how cool is that?!

Who said slackers are lazy and unmotivated? April 7 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Suburbia is a record that maintains its integrity more than anything. It works with the combination of artists that appear. An earlier version of Sonic Youth's "Sunday" is raw and distinct. The underrated Girls Vs. Boys crafts a cool song called "Bullet Proof Cupid". Additionally, songs from Beck and the Butthole Surfers blend in well with the overall mood of the record. Kudos to Richard Linklater for putting bands on the record that have earned a place on a moody, innovative soundtrack instead of throwing out bands that are the "thing of the moment" with no passion and musicianship.
