Synopsis

Amazon.com
Jim Carroll's harrowing saga of growing up troubled in New York City makes for a solid film with an excellent soundtrack to match. Cuts by a Vedder-less Pearl Jam (joining Carroll to rerecord his 1980 fav "Catholic Boy") and Soundgarden (offering the gloomy "Blind Dogs") merit the hype. P. J. Harvey gets extra mileage out of the brilliant "Down by the Water," Green Apple Quick Step's "Dizzy" is a winner and there's the curiosity factor of a, frankly, awful solo debut by Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. --Jeff Bateman

Someone gave me this one and I have never really listened to it all that much. There are performances on here by The Cult, Flea, The Posies, The Doors, Soundgarden PJ Harvey and a track by Jim Carroll with Pearl Jam. Great lineup.

It's a slam-dunk.

"Like anyone, I picked this up because of all the bands I liked on it. But the real bonus is that the bands I didn't know are just as great, or these songs anyway. One of the well known songs on here is "People Who Died", by the "Jim Carroll Band". All the songs involving him are good. The tracks from "PJ Harvey" and "The Cult" are good. Obviously "Riders On The Storm" is classic. The songs "Coming Right Along" and "Strawberry Wine" are suprisingly good as well. The only disappointments here are from "Flea" and "Soundgarden". Neither song is bad, but I expected more from them. This also has a few inserts from the book "Basketball Diaries"."
Great Soundtrack

"This was an awesome movie and a it's a great soundtrack. The "songs" by Jim Carroll are different and if you buy this CD for any reason, it will have to be for the song "Strawberry Wine." Plain and simple, the song is amazing."
