  1. Somehow, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World's music remains true not just to the comic, but to the work of everyone involved in the story at every stage, with plenty of fun and heart to boot.
  2. The clutch of songs performed by make-believe bands are complemented well by a supporting cast including Blood Red Shoes, The Rolling Stones, T. Rex and The Bluetones.
  3. With a soundtrack that captures the spirit of the comics with such fervency, conviction and discipline, Scott Pilgrim vs The World looks set to be a lot less dislikable than you might've hoped.
  4. Like a good mixtape, the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack works less as a primetime rock album and more as an entry point to some great work that those on the margin may have missed. And for what it's worth, it's the best soundtrack Cera has ever been associated with.
  5. Whereas many modern film soundtracks are glorified compilation discs with a seemingly random track selection, the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World soundtrack is very thoughtful in its curation and stands as a very accurate interpretation of O'Malley's fictional world.
  6. In the context of the movie almost all of these songs are great. But as a soundtrack album, Scott Pilgrim doesn't reach the same greatness.
  7. Like the similarly star-studded (but bland) "Twilight" and (insufferably twee) "Juno" soundtracks, Scott Pilgrim is something less than the sum of its parts.

As well as featuring all the songs performed by the various bands from the movie (Sex Bob-Omb, Crash and the Boys) there's also a great collection of songs from other artists included in the film such as The Rolling Stones, T.Rex, Metric, Broken Social Scene, Plumtree and a handful more. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the movie or even the graphic novels. Expand

    The movie is an achievement for visual comic adaptation and the soundtrack, while not as good, does it quite a justice. The fictional SexThe movie is an achievement for visual comic adaptation and the soundtrack, while not as good, does it quite a justice. The fictional Sex Bob-Omb could be successful in the industry judging from their four short tracks. The songs from The Bluetones, T.Rex, and Blood Red Shoes are the diamonds, but the album is appealing enough to keep me playing it every once and a while. Expand

    The movie is incredible. Everything about it is awesome and this soundtrack is one of them.
    A mash up of genres, decades and tones containing artists such as Sex Bob-Omb, Beachwood Sparks, Beck and The Rolling Stones, this soundtrack is great fun to listen to. Maybe if you haven't seen the movie it might all seem a bit random, so being a fan could help, but as long as you appreciate good songs you will probably like it.

    Sound track is good. But does no where near achieves as much epicness as the movie itself.
