Overview

Nothing special here, just your average miscellaneous various-artists compilation masquerading as a soundtrack album. The contemporary love-story plot opens the door for various contemporary performers (PJ Harvey, Moby, Ed Kowalczyk of Live with Neneh Cherry) singing downcast songs over trip-hop beats, along with licensings of previously released tracks by Bonnie Raitt, Cracker, and others. There is a taste of Chet Baker in the saxophonist/singer's rendition of "Everything Happens to Me" with the Charlie Haden Quartet West and composer John Barry's "Remembering Chet," one of two excerpts from the score. It all makes for a moody, low-key collection, little of which is memorable.
