Gotye and Lana are what will keep this from being a 1.5.

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.

This movie is shaping up to be as terrible as expected.

@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.

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.

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

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.

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

I looked at The Great Gatsby recently and realized how small of book it is. Like damn, that means Of Mice and Men must be an hour read these days.
