A Walk to Remember [Bonus Tracks]

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Capitalizing on the release of Mandy Moore's Coverage album, the soundtrack to A Walk to Remember, the movie in which she had her first starring role, returns with a spate of extra tracks. Compared to the autonomy she shows on Coverage, Moore sounds a little unformed on songs like the single "Cry" and the Jonathan Foreman duet "Someday We'll Know," as well as on "Only Hope" and "It's Gonna Be Love," but nevertheless, her delivery on these songs has the sensitivity and intelligence that has placed her above her teen pop contemporaries as they exit their teen years. Switchfoot's earnest performances on "Dare You to Move," "You," and the group's version of "Only Hope" are ...

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Capitalizing on the release of Mandy Moore's Coverage album, the soundtrack to A Walk to Remember, the movie in which she had her first starring role, returns with a spate of extra tracks. Compared to the autonomy she shows on Coverage, Moore sounds a little unformed on songs like the single "Cry" and the Jonathan Foreman duet "Someday We'll Know," as well as on "Only Hope" and "It's Gonna Be Love," but nevertheless, her delivery on these songs has the sensitivity and intelligence that has placed her above her teen pop contemporaries as they exit their teen years. Switchfoot's earnest performances on "Dare You to Move," "You," and the group's version of "Only Hope" are pleasant enough, but also reflect the fact that most of the characters in A Walk to Remember seem to be afraid of rock music. Indeed, Cold's brooding "No One" and West, Gould & Fitzgerald's punk-pop by numbers "So What Does It All Mean?," the album's most rock-oriented tracks, are among the album's weakest selections. Rachael Lampa's "If You Believe" is both overworked and forgettable; perhaps it was included to make Moore's songs look better by comparison. However, Toploader's effervescent cover of King Harvest's "Dancin' in the Moonlight" and the New Radicals' "Mother, We Just Can't Get Enough" are charming in their own right and two of the best non-Moore tracks on the album. The bonus tracks continue the mixed-bag quality of the soundtrack, with the Breeders' alt-rock classic "Cannonball" upping the ante as Fuel's turgid "Empty Spaces" and Noogie's blandly pleasant cover of the Easybeats' "Friday on My Mind" lower it. The expanded version of A Walk to Remember also includes Moore's video for "Cry"; while this is also included on the DVD of the movie, that, along with the bonus tracks, may be enough for some Moore fans to check out this soundtrack again.

    Awesome Songs from a wonderful movie

    This CD is wonderful...There were some songs that are not on this CD from the movie but most are. I think anyone that buys this will think of the movie when they hear the music...at least I do when I play it.
    I would love to know if there is a way to get the rest of the songs?
    I have had no luck...If you love the movie buy the CD you will not be sorry you did...It is very soothing and emotional at times.

    A Great Album to A Great Movie

    This is perhaps the best album to a film that I've heard in years. All the songs capture the spirit of the story about two teens falling in love. It will make you want to dance and cry as well. The heart of this compilation is surely Only Hope. This is for Walk to Remember what My Heart Will Go On was for Titanic. Sadly though, this album contained no score cues as Notebook and Message in a Bottle did. Very upsetting, considering the music was so wonderful! It was composed by Mervyn Warren, by the way. Even so, the album is sufficient.It covers the emotional rollercoaster that is the story. My favorite song besides Only Hope would be Someday We'll Know. Tapwater and Flood are also great, though they ARE NOT on this album. Check those out.
