Various Artists - So I Married an Axe Murderer Soundtrack

There's really only one reason to own this soundtrack: "There She Goes." Both The La's original version and the Boo Radleys cover are worth owning. It's an all-time great power pop song.

Aside from the one real reason to buy this album, there is a fine Toad the Wet Sprocket Song which is available in their studio catalog, and an unrelreased Soul Asylum track which could have been a b-side for any of the Grave Dancers Union singles. Aside from that, there's not much. It's sad to see how much of this 90's music has dated poorly because it's the era in which I really started to love music. I don't think I ever need to hear "Two Princes" by Spin Doctors ever again. The same can be said for "Rush" by Big Audio Dynamite II. Other tracks on the album are ok, but nothing stellar. All in all it's not that great of a soundtrack. You'd be better off with The La's self-titled album.
