4 New & Used Starting at $3.00


It became the norm in the 1990s to throw together a film soundtrack featuring some of the more popular "alternative" bands of the day in the hope that this would gain the soundtrack a modicum of credibility, if not success. The soundtrack to the movie S.F.W. is no exception to this rule, although it does manage to put together an entertaining group of songs that, for good or bad, reflected mid-'90s alternative rock. Opening with one of Soundgarden's finest moments, "Jesus Christ Pose," the tone has been well and truly set, and the fact that elsewhere songs by Hole, Marilyn Manson, Suicidal Tendencies, Monster Magnet, and Babes in Toyland appear should come as no surprise. Where this album succeeds is when it gets a little less predictable. The psychedelic "Can I Stay?" by Pretty Mary Sunshine is no less than superb, Chris Cornell's solo take on "Like Suicide" is haunting and near-perfect, and Paw's "Surrender," while more or less standard fare, is performed with plenty of energy. Predictable, maybe. Commercial, certainly. But any soundtrack that can include both Radiohead's anthemic "Creep" and the silly thrash metal of GWAR's "S.F.W." is worthy of a second listen.
