AllMusic Review by

Quirky, romantic comedies starring Drew Barrymore demand quirky, indie/alternative rock soundtracks, and the sixteen cuts that adorn the audio accompaniment to 2010’s Going the Distance, dutifully rises to the occasion, despite the exclusion of the song “Going the Distance” by Cake. Offering up a winning blend of indie rock royalty (Cat Power, Passion Pit, Albert Hammond Jr.) and post-punk/alt-rock icons (Pretenders, Replacements, The Cure), Going the Distance is the sound of you, the twenty/thirtysomething listener, pressing the shuffle button your smart phone/MP3 player.
