How to Deal

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Capturing the seesawing emotions of a teenager balancing love, friendship, and family, the How to Deal soundtrack boasts sugar-rush highs and head-in-hands lows. Adapted from Sarah Dessen's popular young-adult novels, the film stars pop princess Mandy Moore A Walk to Remember, The Princess Diaries as Halley Martin, a teen skeptical about love who has to deal with tragic events when the boyfriend of her best friend, Scarlett Alexandra Holden, dies in an accident, leaving Scarlett with the discovery that she's carrying his baby. Providing the soundtrack to Halley's mood swings is a cast of artists both familiar and unknown. The disc leads off with the buzzing single ...

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Capturing the seesawing emotions of a teenager balancing love, friendship, and family, the How to Deal soundtrack boasts sugar-rush highs and head-in-hands lows. Adapted from Sarah Dessen's popular young-adult novels, the film stars pop princess Mandy Moore A Walk to Remember, The Princess Diaries as Halley Martin, a teen skeptical about love who has to deal with tragic events when the boyfriend of her best friend, Scarlett Alexandra Holden, dies in an accident, leaving Scarlett with the discovery that she's carrying his baby. Providing the soundtrack to Halley's mood swings is a cast of artists both familiar and unknown. The disc leads off with the buzzing single "Billy S" as in Shakespeare from 14-year-old newcomer Skye Sweetnam, whose energy and radio-friendly sound is matched by 30-something ex-indie-pop queen Liz Phair, who captures giddy love on "Why Can't I." Beyond those pop bursts -- and rockin' cuts from high school grads the Donnas the boy-bashing "It's on the Rocks" and British retro-rockers the Music the Led Zep revelry of "Take the Long Road and Walk It" -- the predominant mood is meditative. There are two versions of Cat Stevens' '70s folk-pop hit "Wild World" -- the original plus Beth Orton's acoustic cover -- and memorable album cuts from John Mayer the winsome "Not Myself" and the Flaming Lips the psychedelic pop of "Do You Realize??". Fleshing out the album are several songs from fresh new talent, including Aslyn's strings-laced ballad "That's when I Love You," Tremolo's Radiohead-esque "Promise Ring," and ECHO's breezy, jazz-meets-electronica "Surrender." Moore's emotional journey in How to Deal is set in gorgeous relief with this inspired soundtrack.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
In keeping with the newfound seriousness of her music and film careers, the soundtrack to Mandy Moore's How to Deal is considerably less fluffy than the music for her previous cinematic effort, A Walk to Remember. Indeed, How to Deal includes exactly zero tracks by Moore, opting for a mix of alternative and classic rock, including the Flaming Lips' "Do You Realize??," the Music's "Take the Long Road and Walk It," and Cat Stevens' "Wild World." With the exception of Skye Sweetnam's decidedly teen-y song about William Shakespeare, "Billy S.," the album makes no acknowledgement of Moore's teen pop past, although it does feature girl power in various shapes and forms, including the Donnas' "It's on the Rocks," Beth Orton's "Thinking About Tomorrow" and "Wild World," as well as Liz Phair's "Why Can't I?"; ironically enough, this song is the closest to teen pop the album gets, save for "Billy S." The soundtrack also has its share of slightly saccharine ballads, such as John Mayer's "Not Myself," Aslyn's "That's When I Love You," and "Promise Ring" by Tremolo, but these are balanced out somewhat by the swooning, Jeff Buckley-esque "Waves" by Marjorie Fair and the breezy electronic pop of Echo's "Surrender." All in all, How to Deal is a solid soundtrack that should please fans of the movie.
