The film CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL stars two young talents (Kirsten Dunst, Jay Hernandez) bursting with energy and vitality. Accordingly, the eclectic, multi-cultural soundtrack is full of fresh, vibrant sounds. The disc kicks off with Mellow Man Ace's Spanish-language rapping on "Ten La Fe," segueing into Lily Frost's "Who Am I?" which wouldn't sound out of place on a LILITH FAIR compilation. An impressively diverse batch of stops are made along the way, everything from the wide-screen guitar-rock of Seven Mary Three's "Wait" to the arch alt-pop of Fastball's "This is Not My Life" and The Getaway People's funky "She Gave Me Love." While this disc may seem to be all over the map stylistically, it's the urgency of expression that provides a common thread throughout each of CRAZY/BEAUTIFUL's songs.
