Soundtrack of the year.
The music in this film was composed by some of the most talented poets of todays musical world (Florence Welch, The XX, Gotye) and many of the most popular Artists on the charts (Jay-Z, Beyonce, Lana Del Ray) with the intention of creating a hauntingly vibrant original score that would give the people of 2013 an idea of what the music of the New York 20's would have been like for people then.
This soundtrack is mind-blowing, with a huge contrast of ideas and sounds, each song takes you on a journey, and each song made the film itself lovable.
Soundtrack of 2013 along side "Django Unchained".
Pop culture trying too hard
Some well knowns feature on this album, but it feels like they are trying too hard to stylize their music for Gatsby. It's like the producers had a meeting and said "we want this album to have mass appeal, so lets get some 'now' artists like Will.i.am". Listened to as a whole, its a mess of quirky covers, pop stars trying to be 'period' sounding, and some random jay-z and nero. As many songs are "album only" it doesn't let us pick and choose only those we want so hence the low rating. If the selection of music was more cohesive, maybe more stars.
made the movie so much better than what it already was!! Best soundtrack for a movie that I've heard in a long time!
