While the soundtrack to Zach Braff's 2004 film Garden State has some great songs on it, it really didn't grab my attention to much because I already own the respective albums that contain most of the songs contained on the album.

That doesn't make it a bad album. I mean, there's nothing bad about The Shins or Simon & Garfunkle. It's just that the album offers too many songs that have already been releases on previous albums.

The only real new gem on the album is Iron & Wine's cover of "Such Great Heights" and Frou Frou's electronic "Let Go".

Maybe I'm being too harsh on the album. I mean, it's not too different from a mix CD that I might have made myself. It's just that I was looking for something new.

If you're looking for some rare and new tracks, don't buy this album. If you are, however, looking for some catchy songs that make a great backing track for one of the best movies of 2004, then you will enjoy this collection.
