Synopsis

Amazon.com
While not as audacious as the Trainspotting soundtrack (which effectively introduced the general public to electronica), this disc quite au courant also has strong marquee value. Beck's "Deadweight" is loungy, nicely juiced and very cool. REM's low-key, quasi-ambient "Leave" is an intriguing detour for Stipe & Co. All this plus exceptional cuts by Folk Implosion, Luscious Jackson, Sneaker Pimps, The Cardigans, and the Cheez Whiz splendor of Elvis Presley's "Always on My Mind." --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Missing One of My Favourites!
Jamie Fraser | Toronto, Canada | 08/23/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was pleased to see that most songs from the movie were included in the soundtrack, but the Oasis song, 'Around Are Way' that Ewan McGregor sang a few bars of in the movie was missing, and I would really have liked it if they had included the version of 'Beyond the Sea' that Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz sang together. That was one of my favourite scenes in the movie, and since Ewan has such a beautiful voice, I would have liked it if that version had made it onto the soundtrack."
Great Compilation

"I don't think there is one bad track on the entire CD. I never saw the movie, but LOVE this soundtrack. From ELVIS to Bobby DARIN, to Sneaker Pimps, this CD has it all. I loved it, very eclectic and just plain great music. BECK too!"
Starting to sound dated

"This used to be a 4-star album back when it first came out, but unlike other albums that seem to be built to withstand the test of time, the soundtrack to "A Life Less Ordinary" now sounds dated. Unfortunate indeed, considering how strong the opening is, with Beck's classic "Dead Weight", but in this case it is understandable why the used copies are flooding the Amazon marketplace."
