    Despite what the critics are saying about the movie, 1 thing is for certain, the soundtrack is masterful. Executive Producer Jay-Z did a fantastic job of putting this together. The stand out tracks to me are, besides obvious favorites Lana Del Rey & Florence The Machine, Jack White with his cover of U2's "Love Is Blindness", Coco O's "Where The Wind Blows", Emeli Sande & The Bryan Ferry Orchestra's "Crazy In Love (Kid Koala Version)", and Gotye's "Heart's A Mess". Excellent music all around and it is a very enjoyable listen from start to finish. Expand

    Despite the critics are saying bad about the movie, the soundtrack is really good. The highlights are Emeli with Crazy In Love, Jay-Z with $100 Bill and Lana Del Rey's Young and Beautiful. I recommend this.

    Excellently combining the classy 20's era jazz with modern day pop, The Great Gatsby soundtrack features a lot of consistently great talent and fun tracks. I found it consistently great throughout, (except for Gotye, never cared for them), with my favorites being "Over the Love" by Florence The Machine, "Young and Beautiful" by Lana Del Rey, and "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody" by Fergie, Q-Tip and Goonrock.

    Most of the cars in The Great Gatsby crash and so does Luhrman's soundtrack.

    The Great Gatsby Soundtrack is a fine example of what a film’s musical-mate can and should be; it mirrors many aesthetic elements of the film, augments the general storyline and adds depth and personality to the characters and dialogue on the screen.

    Gatsby manages to avoid the major mistake that many soundtracks have, which is not keeping a uniform style throughout the album. At the same time, The Great Gatsby Soundtrack also offers variation, though it comes at a small price. Some of the artists that get a share of the spotlight don’t live up to the standout performances of the album.
