The movie has an ad for the soundtrack about twenty minutes in. It's not a huge ad, but it seems very out of place. The music by itself is okay, if you are into slightly ethereal, lyrically-focused bands. As with the movie itself, many teenagers cling to these bands as if they can do no wrong.
Sally: No. It's boring and I would fall asleep and neither of us would get any.
The soundtrack also contains WONDERFUL music by The Shins, Frou Frou, Remy Zero, Zero 7, Iron and Wine, and Coldplay, among others. Perfect.

I dunno, he's kind of garden state.
