Interesting soundtrack from an interesting movie. Anybody remember the great grunge days of the 90s? Star tracks include Tori Amos' "Siren," Chris Cornell's "Sunshower" (one of his first solo efforts), and the throbbing make-out track from Mono.

"Like many soundtracks, I bought the soundtrack to the film 'Great Expectations' because there was a brand new Tori Amos track on it, and I *love* her. I had done the same with the 'Higher Learning' soundtrack, and was extremely disappointed due to the vomitory rap songs that surrounded Tori's gems. 'Great Expectations' pleasantly surprised me. Tori's track, the curious "Siren," is a piano-laced euphoria, her crystalline voice and Bösendorfer treading through a dreamy drum-driven soundscape (how 'bout that alliteration!) It is truly a masterpiece. "Wishful Thinking," a sullen, truthful tune by the ever-wonderful (and native New Jerseyan) Duncan Sheik, is the other masterpiece on the album. Highlights include the shocking ballad by former Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell ("Sunshower") and the poppy sunshiny splendor of "Today" by the smoky-voiced Poe. Overall, the songs, ranging from Iggy Pop to "Bésame Mucho", are journeys themselves in music."

"Like that sleak image of Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover, the soundtrack to this mediocre Dickens adaptation is sexy and sophisticated, for the most part. Tori Amos starts it out with loopy solipsism, but most of the songs on the record are joyous surprises - Reef's "Resignation" and David Garza's "Slave" are great fun, Mono does a subtly devastating update on Abba's "Life In Mono," and Pulp finds charm and pulse in "Like a Friend." I think most are agreed the true hero of the soundtrack winds up being Scott Weiland, whose "Lady, Your Roof Drags Me Down" is jazzy, unexpected, and threatens to explode in 100 directions at once."
