Mondo delivers on another awesome soundtrack! This soundtrack served as Grunge 101 to many fans discovering the Seattle music scene in the early 90's. And it should. Cameron Crowe's film was decent, but the soundtrack far outshined it. We can't recommend this highly enough to all our customers, even if it is a bit outside your normal purchases. Replace the long-lost CD of your youth or dig into why Seattle music was a thing in the early 90's/why it killed off so much glam metal.
The Singles soundtrack was released in early 1992, a full three months before the film opened, and it was an instant hit, eventually selling over two million copies. It’s the perfect snapshot of Grunge, Seattle at a certain place and time. Cameron Crow made Singles a full year before Grunge became one of the last cultural phenomenons of pre-internet times. The soundtrack is phenomenal, featuring every Seattle band that was hot at the time (except Nirvana).
Alice In Chains delivers ‘Would?’ a dark gothic grunger about former Mother Love Bone singer Andrew Wood (who died of a drug overdose). The spectre of Andrew Wood looms large on this soundtrack; his band’s fingerprints can be heard throughout the score. Their epic ‘Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns’ closes out side A, and both Pearl Jam and Soundgarden (featuring former MLB members) turn in some of their best songs. Paul Westerberg, fresh from breaking up the incredible The Replacements, has two solo songs, including the mini hit ‘Dyslexic Heart’. Also featured are The Screaming Trees, The Smashing Pumpkins, Jimi Hendrix and The Lovemongers, and let us not forget the incomparable Mudhoney with the barbed ‘Overblown’.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest soundtracks ever released.
