The soundtrack to The Craft, a film about a coven of teenage witches, is the standard mid-'90s pop soundtrack. It features a number of alternative bands, from the good (Elastica, Matthew Sweet) to the undistinguished (Tripping Daisy), contributing rarities and covers. There are a few good tracks on the collection, but The Craft soundtrack is pretty bad, ranging from the dull to the downright awful. And out of all the mediocre music on the album, Love Spit Love's utterly clueless cover of the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now" ranks as the worst track by far, which is quite an accomplishment in itself.
