    Amazing new music from Shields.... The perfect soundtrack to a brilliant movie. [Dec 2003, p.89]
  2. Included are (somewhat disappointing) new tunes from Air and My Bloody Valentine mastermind Kevin Shields. [10 Oct 2003, p.124]
  3. Showcas[es] [Shields'] typically speaker-buckling white noise. [Nov 2003, p.126]
  4. As worthwhile as Shields' contributions are, it would be a mistake to let them eclipse the rest of this fine soundtrack.
  5. That's quite a timespan, though, and it does mean that one minute you're reeling from the hormonal stench of a roomful of anguished shoegazers and the next you're surrounded by happy little Japanese girls wearing anti-gravity shoes and doing Steiner dancing with wafty pastel banners. But that's just as it should be.
  6. For the most part, the tracks hang together and flow relatively well, orbiting the shimmering dreampop mass that serves as the record's unstated inspiration.

    Death in Vegas sounds more like MBV than Kevin Sheilds but other than that a lovely album.

    The soundtrack is successful in placing the listener back in the memory of a very good movie. As a stand alone album, probably not very good. Dirty Vegas track is sweet, the Japanese song is cool, and Just Like Honey recalls the powerful last few moments of the movie vere well. Expand
