It's free of the terrible compression of most modern recordings. The kids voices are so fantastically dissonant, and for that reason, it won't be everyone's cup of tea, as any music that uses dissonance musically tends to be hit or miss for people. But there is a lot of emotion behind it, and really brings you back to the movie experience as well. For those reasons, it has been on heavy rotation for me.

It is like 'the soundtrack to the adventures of pete and pete' in that I can listen to it as a standalone album, and a great one at that.

I usually enjoy bluesy soundtracks, where the music and images are thick with that delta sweat. Two relatively recent I enjoyed were:


The Hot Spot


Black Snake Moan
