Customer Reviews

Singles (Deluxe Edition)The question isn't really whether or not you should purchase the "Singles" soundtrack. If you are a fan of grunge music then this is a pretty essential purchase. The two Pearl Jam songs are among the best they've ever written, Soundgarden's "Birth Ritual" is pretty great, the Smashing Pumpkins "Drown" is possibly their most underrated song. Really there is nothing on this soundtrack that isn't worth listening to except the The Lovemongers (Nancy and Ann Wilson of Heart) cover of "Battle of Evermore". It's not terrible but it's a toss off that doesn't add anything to this record.But here's a not well kept secret about the "Singles" soundtrack: if you want it you can find it incredibly cheap. If there is any place near you that sells used CD's, whether it be a record shop or a Goodwill store, they will have at least one copy of this. Probably three or four. So the real question isn't whether you should buy this soundtrack but whether or not you need this expanded deluxe edition.I am usually not a fan of these sorts of packages. Usually the demos are boring and the artwork is almost never an improvement. But you know what? This is a pretty good reissue. The bonus disc is actually really excellent. I dug the Chris Cornell "Poncier" tape stuff. The live material is pretty good (Soundgarden and Alice In Chains). I enjoyed the demos well enough, and the incidental music at the end of the bonus disc is good. Nothing you hear here is revelatory but it does build upon the record.The accompanying booklet is pretty good as well. Cameron Crowe writes small items for each song, discussing how they came to be in the film. He does this for the bonus material as well.If you dig "Singles" then this reissue is worth your time and money.4It was all about the timingBoth the film and the soundtrack are one of those things that just happened at the right place at the right time. Singles wasn't an introduction to 90s alternative, most of these bands were all over MTV between 1990-1991, and Singles came along in 1992. According to the notes from Cameron Crowe, he lived in Seattle and made this movie around 91, but the studio sat on it until they realized the bands involved were becoming radio friendly hit makers, then the film came out. Crowe even addresses that many people thought (count me as one of them) that the Singles film was made in response to the rising popularity of Seattle rock, but it really was more of a hand-in-hand kinship of the Seattle music scene and Crowe's film.If you owned the Singles soundtrack (on cassette maybe?? I did!) in the 90s, it wasn't because you didn't know these bands, it was BECAUSE you knew these bands you owned it. While Alice In Chains would include their tracks on their next album, the Pearl Jam and Soundgarden/Chris Cornell stuff was so good, its a head scratcher that they never put them out on an album and relegated them to a movie soundtrack. The Smashing Pumpkins track is personally one of my favorite Pumpkins' song of all time: A long, guitar-oriented psychedelic opus... I'd argue there is no other SP track like Drown, and at the time, Singles OST was the only place to hear it. Including a Hendrix track is the ultimate love note to Seattle, and again what a great amount of thought went into picking that track. Rather than 'that one song everyone knows', they choose May This Be Love, a sublime, sweet Hendrix ballad.The bonus disc is a terrific addition to the soundtrack and well worth buying the Deluxe Version for.There are very few soundtracks (especially in the modern iTunes era) that are this well thought-out, that are this consistent from first track to the last. From the top of my head (and from my own collection), I could only think of the Pump Up The Volume soundtrack as being as great as the Singles soundtrack. Those 2 are probably the 2 best alt-rock oriented soundtracks you'll ever find.5a welcome reprisal (weird coincidence?)This past Thursday, May 18, I heard radio news that Cornell died the night before. The first song that came to me was "Seasons" from this soundtrack. I had the cassette way back when, and I have loved that song all these years.That Thursday night, my wife said it was time to replace her lost copy of the CD. I visited Amazon and discovered this 25th anniversary version. It arrived this morning, in hot Phoenix.No need to speak of the original (disc one), so brief comments on the extra disc.I had no knowledge of the "Poncier" ep, which resides here. Cornell demos, one of which (Spoonman) would find life on Soundgarden's superb album Superunknown a few years after. The three other songs from this ep should interest those who appreciate Cornell's music (though I assume most have heard these). Flutter Girl is wonderful, and sounds like it could have been a template for Black Hole Sun. The final song from this ep, called Missing, has a bit of mid-90s power pop vibe (Plimsouls-esque), and very different than any recordings Cornell made before or after.Next, after the Poncier ep, comes live recordings from AIC (the timeless and phenomenal Would?, followed by It Ain't Like That). Then, live rendition of Soundgarden's equally timeless and phenomenal Birth Ritual. Truly a snapshot of a fertile period in the history of rock music in North America in the 90s. And, to my jaded ears, still sounds vital.That this edition was released 48 hours after Cornell died seems a bit of a weird coincidence. Personally, I feel more saddened by his death than I do other musical icons deaths during the past two years. Chris's lyrics and otherworldly howl will resonate in my heart and soul as long as I live. His art touched my heart.I encourage anyone who appreciates this amazing time of great music exploding from this country to revisit this compilation. In some ways, it hits harder now than it did 25 years ago.RIP, Chris. Why'd you do it man?5Love it!Classic soundtrack. Both records sound great and I did not have packaging issues like some other reviewers. The bonus CD was included and two separate records were in there. The only bad thing that I could possibly say is that the paper inserts were very basic, but that's kinda a minor point. So happy with this purchase.5Brilliant soundtrackThis soundtrack is without a doubt the best of any in the 90's. This review is for the vinyl version. It is two LP's and one CD with the bonus tracks. The vinyl is a great pressing, no noise and high quality. The music is incredible and a snapshot of that period. It was great to hear Layne sing live on two tracks on the bonus disc, he sounded awesome before his drug addiction ruined him. And Chris Cornell...I cannot put it into words. His music has always had a special place in me. This album is a must have.5Fun for Die-Hard Fans of the Movie and SoundtrackIf you have the original soundtrack you probably don't need this one, but all the extras are pretty cool. Not masterpieces, but certainly enjoyable and they evoke good memories from seeing this movie like 4 times in college. So it is definitely a nostalgia-booster!5Great soundtrack to a good movie, plus cool bonus tracksBetter than the original "Single" release. There are songs on the bonus disc that were featured in the movie, and I thought to myself "Why wasn't this song on the original CD?" Now some 25 years later, the songs are on the deluxe version. Great music from Seattle, especially Mother Love Bone, I love their song "Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns" and this is actually different than the original song, this version is hard to find on any of their CD's. The deluxe version is worth it. The CD cover is a little bit bigger than regular CD covers [Jewel Cases], so it won't fit in an ordinary CD rack. 5/55SeasonsThe only reason I purchased this was to get the song "Seasons" by Chris Cornell. I fell in love with the song while it was being played in the Superman movie "Man of Steel". I've played this song to death and the rest of the CD is decent if you love 90's grunge.4Mostly what I was hoping for.This record is one of my desert island selections. It was transformative for me and has been on heavy rotation since I bought it the year it was first released. I know the CD and streaming versions very well, and this one will hit all of your nostalgia buttons the same way.Buying it on vinyl means that I can throw it in with the records that I collect intentionally, which I reserve for an audiophile system and only really play when I plan to sit and concentrate on the music. As such, I got everything you get with vinyl, and that is the only problem. This pressing is not what you would consider a "hot stamper." The remastering sounds great, and all of the detail of the original is there plus a little warmth and some detail I hadn't noticed before.However, it's also a noisy pressing. There is substantial surface noise on "Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns" and "Drown," and at least a few ticks and pops throughout the rest of both records.It does the job, and I won't be looking to replace it, and maybe my hopes were too high for a soundtrack album of grunge music that wasn't exactly meant to be examined at an audiophile level of detail, but it would have been nice to have this live up to some of my other top 10 desert island records, such as the recent rereleases of Kate Bush's discography, or the 180 gram Mezzanine from Massive Attach, for example.Three starts for a good remastering plus one star for even thinking to rerelease something like this, but minus one start for the noisy pressing.4The new songs are only on cd not on the records as part of the setAmazing album but the deluxe edition vinyl doesn t have the bonus songs on vinyl they re on cd which defeats the purpose of buying it on vinyl, why would you not press those songs on vinyl as part of the package very disappointed in this purchase for that reason, the vinyl sounds great and the packaging is beautiful, just don t expect the new music on vinyl. Also a digital download would have been nice since I don t have a CD player in my new truck.2
