In America (Soundtrack from the Motion Picture)

This soundtrack made In America the beautiful, lyrical movie it was. Repetitive pulsing notes, ethereal unpronounced chords hovering in the background, and a simple, single guitar line bespeak life's constant movement, mystery, and ordinariness. (Listen to "Some Things...", "Mateo...", "Third Wish.") Nor does it take itself too seriously - the mystical, arhythmic musing is punctuated with quirky, comical tracks ("All Our Troubles...). If the album is a bit monotonous, it's forgivable since it presents themes one wants to hear over and over again.
In a trance
I dont think I've ever heard a soundtrack that stays with you forever - this one does - and how fitting for this movie - a must see AND a must hear! Remarkable!
