Boy from East L.A. meets girl from the "right" side of the tracks. Unfortunately, their relationship is threatened by mediocre music... er, societal pressures. For every worthy, evocative track that the Kirsten Dunst-starring Crazy/Beautiful's CD companion offers, two seem like recordings that a studio suit decided "the kids will relate to": Emiliana Torrini's Björk-lite "To Be Free," the Getaway People's Beck-lite "She Gave Me Love," and Osker's Blink-182-lite "Alright" might work in theaters, but here they just make the listener hope that the movie itself is better written than these leftovers. Save for the Dandy Warhols' "Sleep" (from 2000's masterful Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia) and maybe Fastball's "This Is Not My Life," the album hardly makes a good argument for the continuing validity of guitar rock--and was Seven Mary Three's "Wait" commissioned as a Goo Goo Dolls knockoff or a Bon Jovi homage? Latin hip-hop is better served, with excellent Mellow Man Ace and Delinquent Habits concoctions on board, but rock tunes by La Ley and Serralde are hardly as inspiring. --Rickey Wright

Each person of course has a personal opinion about everything, and may like the songs that I didn't and vice versa, but regardless, I would completely and totally advise you to buy this CD!!
The soundtrack to this film is virtually flawless in that the songs selected perfectly compliment the actions that were taking place on screen, weaving in and out as needed, without distracting from the actors and dialogue. No high octane MTV-like quick cuts and embolism inducing bass. I do think that Amazon's Reviewer was kind of harsh though. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the majority of people who buy soundtracks aren't fooling themselves into thinking that they'll be treated to mindblowingly original music. Unless you're dealing with an artist of Bjork's calibre, that ain't gonna happen. However, if you're the type of person that likes to listen to a soundtrack to get you in the right mood -- whether it's for dancing/singing along, or daydreaming, or maybe just to remember a movie scene by scene-- then this one is for you. My only gripe is the inexcusable omission of David Gray's song "This Year's Love". It's played at a tender moment in the film and definitely should have been included. Shame on you, Hollywood Records. Cheap tricks like this are the reason music fans will always continue to share files online. RIAA be damned.
P.S. Reuben, the song you're looking for is called "To Be Free" by Emiliana Torrini and it is on this soundtrack.
I would give the soundtrack ***** but it's missing that song so I must go with ****, but even without that song it is still one of my favorite soundtracks and CD's of the year. Definately buy it.
Right now, I'm just glad I finally found it.
