AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack for the 2010 comedy drama It’s Kind of a Funny Story relies heavily on Canadian indie rock collective Broken Social Scene. The group scored the film, which stars Emma Roberts, Keir Gilchrist, and Zach Galifianakis, and contributed a brand new track, “Not at My Best,” along with its 2005 hit “Major Label Debut” -- a recording of the full score was not released concurrent with the soundtrack. The rest of the soundtrack is populated by the usual assortment of quirky indie rockers like the Middle East and White Hinterland, solid veterans like the Damned, and offbeat international artists like Rachid Taha and Maxence Cyrin, the latter of whom provides a gorgeous instrumental piano rendition of the Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind.”
