The Way Way Back

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The charming coming of age comedy The Way Way Back soundtracks its tale of 14-year-old Duncan's fateful summer working at the Water Wizz water park with bouncy '80s hits and indie rock. Bookended by songs from Edie Brickell and the Gaddabouts, the album's highlights include Army Navy's "Running Wild," Mr. Mister's "Kyrie," Wild Belle's "Shine," and INXS' "New Sensation." While the collection isn't as consistent as the soundtracks to like-minded films such as Juno or Little Miss Sunshine, it still has enough personality to be an entertaining set of songs.
