I was listening to this soundtrack the other day and it reminded of how bad today's music really is. The music of the early nineties is far superior and more meaningful than anything Britney Spears or Backstreet Boys will ever come up with. I'm sorry but it is. That's why in the long run the artists that made alternative music what it is will be remembered and Britney won't. I long for the days when stuff like this was playing on the radio. Anyway, I love this album because it is an eclectic mix of diverse songs that just plain rock. It was cool that Crowe put in such old songs as "Battle of Evermore" and that song by Jimi Hendrix (I forgot the name of it). Plus there is an excellent song by Mother Love Bone (after this band split up the remaining members formed Pearl Jam) called "Chloe Dancer." This song is up there with "Stairway to Heaven" as a combination of two different songs that come together to form an excellent extended musical composition. Another great song is "Drown" by the Smashing Pumpkins. This is a long song that goes on when you think it should end. But, once you get used to the weird ending you realize the beauty of that ending. My favorite on this album would have to be "Seasons" by Chris Cornell. This is a reflective piece that has Chris looking back to his past to see where has been to see where he is going to go. I was listening to this song in the car the other day and it had been such a long time since I had heard the song that all the memories I had of myself listening to this song for the first time came rushing back as if a water gate had been opened. It was cool because the song talks about the past and how everything goes by so fast. Well, when I heard the song I was transported back to 1992 when I listened to this soundtrack all the time. I have fond memories of that time period. What a great feeling it was!

What got me into this Singles soundtrack was that i had heard that there was some unreleased Pearl Jam tracks. I went to my local A&B sound and checked it out. I saw a track by Alice in Chains (but i already had Dirt), a Chris Cornell track, a smashing pumpkins, and a soundgarden one. Seeing these bands i liked i decieded i might as well give it a try. This cd opened my eyes to other bands like the screaming trees, mother love bone, and mudhoney. All of the tracks by the bands i stated above were great songs, along with the song by jimi hendrix, and the love mongers do a fantastic cover of a fantastic zeppelin song.
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)

Back in the early 90's, Seattle was the hippest place in the country. From grunge music to coffee, Seattle was the center of cool. Cameron Crowe used the city and it's music scene as the backdrop for his second movie, Singles. This soundtrack is made up of mostly Seattle grunge bands and is a true gem. Many of the bands included here are instantly recognizable, but at the time of the movie's release they were young and fresh and just making a dent on the music scene. Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden & Smashing Pumpkins all released highly successful and notable recordings throughout the 90's and they all contribute excellent songs. Pearl Jam provides two numbers and they are among the band's best. "Breathe" is a classic PJ rocker in the "Alive" vein while "State Of Love & Trust" contains a classic Vedder lyric. Alice In Chains provides the short burst of energy in the pulsating "Would?" and Soundgarden's lead singer Chris Cornell contributes the reflective "Seasons". The two non-Seattle performers, Minnesotan Paul Westerberg & Chicagoans Smashing Pumpkins, give the album two of it's best songs. Westerberg's "Dyslexic Heart" plays throughout the movie and gives it its theme. It is a great piece of pop music and stands in contrast to the grunginess of the rest of the album. The Smashing Pumpkins close the album out with the feedback driven epic "Drown". Other lesser known Seattle bands who never reached the mainstream success of the previously mentioned bands given the album a nice balance. Mudhoney is a Seattle legend and they provide "Overblown" while a band who contained future members of Pearl Jam, Mother Love Bone's "Chloe Dancer" is quite poignant. Seattle godfather Jimi Hendrix is here as is the Lovemongers which is Heart's acoustic forary. All in All the album and movie is a time capsule of Seattle and is worth looking back on.

In the course of the two decades I have listened to music, my favorite decade for music was the early '90s when alternative (I hate using this world immensely) music was big thanks to the explosion of Nirvana and grunge (another term I hate using) music. One of the most defining moments in alternative music that particular decade was the Seattle-based film "Singles" (one of the few films I can stomach from Cameron Crowe). Not only did I love the film but the soundtrack was equally good. It had some of the hottest modern rock bands of the decade on one cd. Not only was it the soundtrack to an excellent film but also the soundtrack to generation x (ugh! another term I loathe). One of my personal favorite songs on the cd is by Minneapolis hero Paul Westerberg "Dyslexic Heart", an incredibly infectious song that I could not get out of my head when I first heard the song. The cd kicks off with one of the most premier grunge bands from the '90s, "Would" by Alice in Chains. It is one of my favorite songs by Alice in Chains with its trademark sludge guitars provided by Jerry Cantrell and nihilistic lyrics by Layne Stayley (R.I.P). Ironically enough, Cameron's wife Nancy Wilson (Heart/The Lovemongers) appears on the cd with her side project The Lovemongers. They do a fairly interesting cover of Led Zeppelin's "Battle of Evermore". All the songs are great. I love the Screaming Trees' "Nearly Lost You" and "Seasons" by Chris Cornell. "Singles" is evidence to what great music that came out of the '90s. Too bad the new millenium has proven jacksquat.
