Okay, so I'm the 1st, and maybe last, person to review this CD. I came across it when looking at the Luaka Bop website and was intrigued - I've found a few very good and pretty obscure albums put out by them. Altho I'd never heard of the movie - or heard any of the music - when I saw some of the artists (David Byrne, Zap Mama, Lou Reed, etc.) and found that I could buy it for less than $1, it looked like a good bet.
It turned out to be even better than I hoped. While not every track is great, several are - especially "God's Child," "Tango Apasionado" and "Egg Cream." This CD is a steal!
4 stars for content, 5 stars for value.
God's Child alone makes it worth the purchase

"The soundtrack is quirky just like the movie. But David Byrne's collaboration with Selena, God's Child, is one of my all-time top-25 songs. In fact, according to my last.fm account, it's the 4th most heavily played song for me. Byrne really understands other music cultures and this collaboration between two performers with vastly different music styles creates a song that's better than either of them alone."
