This is the original release and not the 10th anniversary edition. But there wasn't an option for this when I posted it.

This is not the 10th Anniversary Edition - it's the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack from '94. Same photo on cover.

Not owning this "Bites".

"I have to admit I'm one of the people who bought this again even though I own the original version also. Maybe that's because I'm a slacker at heart and I'm still looking for my "Winona", but I'd say it's more for the great music. This soundtrack isn't as consistent as "The Crow" or "Singles" was, but it's a great snapshot of 1994, and fit the movie well. Of course the bonus here, besides the extra pictures and history, is the added six songs. I have to say I didn't really miss any of them before, and three of the six tracks are from Lisa Loeb or Ethan Hawke, but it's nice to have 79 minutes of mostly great tunes. If you have the original copy of this, I'd say you could pass on the 10th Anniversary Edition, since the best of what's here, was here before."
Worth the money!

"I graduated college the year this film was released and we bought it on VHS (hey, it was 10 years ago!) as a celebration and kind of a spin on what I'd be facing as a theatre major. I never could find the soundtrack and besides being an ultimate Winona fan, would recommend this to anyone in the mood for a flashback entering their 30s and feel like listening to the genre of the 1990s. "Reality Bites" is "The Big Chill" of our generation and so is the music. The best song is definitely U2 "All I Want is You". It was the most moving in the film and a good long song with true lyrics. "Stay" ("I Missed You") is a classic and so is "My Sharona". I wish the soundtrack crew had opted for Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way", but Big Mountain does an honest job. The point of the soundtrack is to relive the film and it succeeds. "When You Come Back To Me" by World Party is also integral to the opening of the movie. Ethan Hawke delivers the same powerhouse performance with "I'm Nuthin'" and on this 10th anniversary CD version "Add it Up" is awesome since it is the explosion between Hawke and Ryder. We also have "Disco Inferno", a song I would have missed on the original track - remember when Ryder is fired and Vickie offers her a job at the Gap, is turned down and slams the door - well she plays this! I really identified with her because she seemed older than the other graduates. "Tempted" is a classic no matter who sings it.Bottom Line: If you hold the movie in your heart like I do, invest in the music. It's teriffic!"
