Customer Reviews

Excellent book and hopefully movie

Before all of the movie bandwagon people start commenting all over this, I would just like to say that this is an excellent book that accurately portrays what a coming of age story should be like. The movie I've heard does it justice but this soundtrack seems like it definitely does too. Definitely preordering.


I'm a huge movie music nerd and I have to say that this album is something all in its own. It's a new sound and almost a breath of fresh air from other movie soundtracks. Needless to say, I love it. Definitely worth the buy.


Rob Simonsen starts with a few offbeat, but energetic arrangement. Both playful and experimental in style. Soon the soundtrack trades in its bouncy tunes for something more somber and pensive. You'll find yourself lost in a sonic world of low, drawn out tones, and ambient sounds. Just when you think you've adapted, you'll find yourself reemerging from the submerged soundscape Simonsen plunges you into. Slowly rebuilding the energy, but with new substance. Not quite the silly energy from the beginning. But something more paced, refreshed and rejuvenated.
The soundtrack is an actual journey, in which no track is the same as the one previous, but it's so coherent that you will be doing yourself a disservice if you don't listen from top to bottom.
