Overview

Capitalizing on the release of Mandy Moore's Coverage album, the soundtrack to A Walk to Remember, the movie in which she had her first starring role, returns with a spate of extra tracks. Compared to the autonomy she shows on Coverage, Moore sounds a little unformed on songs like the single "Cry" and the Jonathan Foreman duet "Someday We'll Know," as well as on "Only Hope" and "It's Gonna Be Love," but nevertheless, her delivery on these songs has the sensitivity and intelligence that has placed her above her teen pop contemporaries as they exit their teen years. Switchfoot's earnest performances on "Dare You to Move," "You," and the group's version of "Only Hope" are pleasant enough, but also reflect the fact that most of the characters in A Walk to Remember seem to be afraid of rock music. Indeed, Cold's brooding "No One" and West, Gould & Fitzgerald's punk-pop by numbers "So What Does It All Mean?," the album's most rock-oriented tracks, are among the album's weakest selections. Rachael Lampa's "If You Believe" is both overworked and forgettable; perhaps it was included to make Moore's songs look better by comparison. However, Toploader's effervescent cover of King Harvest's "Dancin' in the Moonlight" and the New Radicals' "Mother, We Just Can't Get Enough" are charming in their own right and two of the best non-Moore tracks on the album. The bonus tracks continue the mixed-bag quality of the soundtrack, with the Breeders' alt-rock classic "Cannonball" upping the ante as Fuel's turgid "Empty Spaces" and Noogie's blandly pleasant cover of the Easybeats' "Friday on My Mind" lower it. The expanded version of A Walk to Remember also includes Moore's video for "Cry"; while this is also included on the DVD of the movie, that, along with the bonus tracks, may be enough for some Moore fans to check out this soundtrack again.

I just saw the movie yesterday, and I'v watched it like 5 times now! I love Mandy Moore, I think that her and Shane West did a good job together in the movie.The songs ''Cry'' and ''Only Hope'' were really good I think that everyone should have a copy of the movie and the CD! I think that I'm going to read the book next!

It was an amazing cd with great songs. I loved the movie and I loved the cd just as much. It has all the songs in the movie which really add to the story.

I was tempted to buy the soundtrack before i even saw the movie; however, I chose to wait. Now, after seeing the movie (a must see by the way) I'm thoroughly engaged by the soundtrack. The songs are just amazing. Switchfoot delivers awesome and emotional lyrics as does Mandy Moore. You can't help but fall in love with Only Hope (performed by both Mandy and Switchfoot). Dancin' in the Moonlight (performed by Toploader)is so infectious! These songs easily became the soundtrack to my own life. This is a must have for anyone who enjoys songs that make you feel good about life.

This CD is great and I can't wait to see the movie! All the songs on this CD are songs I could easily see going with the movie!!

This soundtrack has some of the most beautiful music on it. The Switchfoot version of "Only Hope" is rich and full of love as well as the more ballad like version by Mandy Moore. The Song "Someday We'll Know" sung by Switchfoot lead vocalist Jonathan Foreman and Mandy Moore is an amazing song. "Dancin' in the Moonlight" is wonderfully performed by Toploader. All in all this CD is definatly worth listening to, and most likely worth the money to buy it.

This soundtrack rules!!! Its got the best mix of rock and pop on it. Mandy moores version of only hope is so beautiful to listen to. On the other hand you've got switchfoots version which is equally as good and beautiful. I love Switchfoot, their music is great! Learning to breathe is my favorite song on the album, as i think the lyrics are just so beautiful. I like all the songs on the sountrack and im so pleasedi decided to finally get it!!!

I really like the mixture of alternative, 70's rock and R&B. I didnt even know that Mandy Moore was an artist when I rented the movie. ( I listen to classical music!) I like music that is uplifting or sings about faith, hope, and love. All of this songs are like that.

Anyone who likes this album (or the movie) needs to listen to Switchfoot. They are one of the most powerful bands out there right now!

the movie was awesome and the soundtrack was even better... I love her single ''Cry''! now I have it on two Cds! hehe. But the movie is totally a chick flick dont rent it for your bf to watch with you unless it is Velentines Day!!!

I'd never been a real big Mandy Moore fan until now. Her voice has matured beautifully, as is prominent most with "Cry" and "Only Hope." Switchfoot has an interesting, easy sound worth giving a try, and their haunting rendition of "Only Hope" is different than Mandy's, but still very good. All in all, a very good CD.

This movie actually introduced me to Switchfoot, the best-band-who-makes-the-best-music-that-I-feel-i'd-die-if-I-don't-hear -it kind of band in the face of the earth.The moment I heard Dare you to move I thought I had to have the CD, or be launched into outer space with a monkey.You and Learning to Breathe are awesome songs, especially Toploader's Dancing in the Moonlight.Switchfoot really is amazing, buying all their albums is extremely recommended.

Not only did I love the movie, the soundtrack rocks. the music has a very lite rock meets pop and metal feel. The love songs are great and you can jam out too.

I'm absolutely enamored by this brilliant song. The moment I laid my eyes on Mandy's beauty singing this phenomenal ballad, I knew how ideally symbolic it was for me. This song sings to my soulmate and expresses the entirety of our love. I feel this song was destined for me and my heart. Every day, this song resounds a wonderful melody to my soul.

I though it was going to be another High School movie but it turned out to be a sweet adventure. A soundtrack to keep for life!!!

this is a great movie. i saw it the first day it came out. and many more times after that. my mom thinks to many times. this was a great movie and they picked some really great songs to put on the sound track. i never really liked many before i saw the movie but now i love her. and as for shane west hes not that bad looking either and i love the fact that he has a song on the soundtrack!
Guest More than 1 year ago
Wow! The movie was great but the soundtrack makes the movie any better. It might spring a few tears with its love ballads but its alternative songs can leave you bobbing your head!
