For their intentions the songs aren't all bad,
Lana grabs on to Daisy's POV real well just as Florence + TM do Gatsby's. Jack White is Jack White.

@Trebor17 Go peruse any of the threads involving a death to gain some perspective if you really think my above opinion is the "worst comment ever".

Luhrmann and Jigga should not be allowed to read The Great Gatsby, let alone bastardize it. The result looks and sounds like an assault on the senses.....imho.

>implying that the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald are that far ahead of Jay-Z and Baz's successes

I was not implying, I was stating it and I was not measuring success. You think their work will stand the test of time like F. Scott's? I doubt that high school juniors will be viewing "Australia" as a historically accurate period piece in 50 years. I love The Black Album, but not sure it is up there with Beethoven's 5th as future HS music class material.

Seeing as how this movie appears to be based on the book only in the loosest of terms I am sure it can be enjoyed on its own.

This is the crappiest soundtrack of all time. Needs some good Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Ella Fitzgerald. I can totally see those guys backing this thing. Maybe some Tangled Thoughts of Leaving thrown in the background when they find Gatsby dead.

They could've made this so much better. But, I have a feeling that the movie will suck. I didn't have high hopes for it- but the soundtrack proves my theories even further.

Considering it was published in 1925, uh... yeah, yeah I'm definitely going to go out on a limb and say nobody will give nearly an iota of a fraction of a fuck about Jay Z's work that far in the future in relative terms.

I feel a little bad for liking the Will.I.Am track, but to hear "Shot him with a bang!" is so damn catchy. Also digging Where the Wind blows (Coco O), Hearts A Mess (Gotye), and Young and Beautiful (Lana Del Ray.)

The album isn't too bad. Based on the original material Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, and Ella Fitzgerald would have been perfect, but considering how Baz Luhrmann like's to bling out his movies, these aren't too bad.

all i'm saying is that bashing jay-z and baz for doing an f. scott adaptation is retarded because jay-z and baz are both incredibly talented


jay-z is one of the most important names in hip-hop


and while baz isn't the best in terms of plot, he certainly knows how to direct and has a pretty fuckin unique style. he directed the shit out of that romeo and juliet remake and moulin rouge is incredible.


f scott is so entry level literature anyways so i dont expect you guys to understand this

definitely agree with you there, and I apologize for my harsh tone, but reasonable doubt and such are fukn STAPLES in hip-hop, and I think this track is actually pretty tight. at least for current j.

I seem to like Florence & The Machine's soundtrack songs a bit more than their ordinary work. "Over The Love" is wonderful.
