Anywhere But Here

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Moira McCormick
Feeling nostalgic for Lilith Fair? You'll want to check out this glossy soundtrack to the new film starring Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman, about the complicated relationship between a mother and daughter who hightail it out of their dead-end town for the glitz of Hollywood. It's a 100 percent femme fest, featuring both big names -- k.d. lang, LeAnn Rimes, Sarah McLachlan, Carly Simon -- and up-and-comers. The vibe is overwhelmingly mainstream-pop singer-songwriter, with much lyrical emphasis on following dreams and yearning to be free.

Feeling nostalgic for Lilith Fair? You'll want to check out this glossy soundtrack to the new film starring Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman, about the complicated relationship between a mother and daughter who hightail it out of their dead-end town for the glitz of Hollywood. It's a 100 percent femme fest, featuring both big names -- k.d. lang, LeAnn Rimes, Sarah McLachlan, Carly Simon -- and up-and-comers. The vibe is overwhelmingly mainstream-pop singer-songwriter, with much lyrical emphasis on following dreams and yearning to be free. There are plenty of standout tracks, though, starting with lang's theme, "Anywhere but Here," an irresistibly poppy offering that showcases her delicious crème-caramel voice to perfection. Spice Girls successors 21st Century Girls kick it on peppy bubble gum anthem "Scream and Shout"; Carly Simon and daughter Sally Taylor weave heavenly harmonies on the ballad "Amity," and Australian star Marie Wilson makes like Indigo Girls' Emily Saliers on "Free." The most intriguing cuts on ANYWHERE BUT HERE are all at the end: Irish thrush Sinéad Lohan whispers the somberly pretty "Everything Around Me Is Changing"; violin virtuoso turned quirky singer-songwriter Lili Haydn conjures visions of Björk on "Come Here," and punky iconoclast Bif Naked delivers the highest-energy cut on the album, "Chotee." Composer Danny Elfman's "Anywhere but Here Score Suite" closes out the album on an atmospheric, wordless-female-vocalizing note.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The soundtrack to Susan Sarandon and Natalie Portman's 1999 film Anywhere but Here features a diverse collection of female artists like Pocket Size, Marie Wilson, Sinead Lohan, Lili Haydn and Bif Naked. k.d. lang performs the title track, Leann Rimes contributes "Leaving's Not Leaving," Carly Simon and Sally Taylor duet on "Amity," and Sarah McLachlan sings "Ice Cream." Representing two generations of women in rock, Anywhere but Here is a fitting complement to the film's mother-daughter relationship.
