We Are Sex Bob-Omb is a great track for the credits of the movie and to start off this disc. Scott Pilgrim reminds me of Zolof, it’s a very cool, catchy, female lead driven song. I Heard Ramona Sing has a very cool intro, but once the vocals come in the song starts to bore me. By Your Side is an okay song, it’s nice and soothing. O Katrina! is kind of forgettable as well. I’m So Sad, So Very, Very, Sad is the tiniest track but it’s kind of funny. We Hate You Please Die is pretty cool, kind of an indie hardcore mix.

Garbage Truck works better in the film, because the band isn’t supposed to be too great at this point. Teenage Dream isn’t really my type of song. Sleazy Bed Track has some nice moments but otherwise doesn’t do a whole lot for me. It’s Getting Boring By The Sea is a fun rock track though. Black Sheep is fantastic, one of the best tracks on here. Threshold is the point in the movie where the band really comes together, and this song is a great showing of it.

Anthems For A Seventeen Year Old Girl is a great song, the vocal effect got on my nerves near the end of the song but everything works well. Under My Thumb is kind of neat, I’ve never been a big Rolling Stones fan but this sounded better than most of their big, famous songs. Ramona is funny in the short acoustic version. Ramona in the longer, fully fleshed out version is a bit boring to be honest. Summertime is nice, it was a nice surprise hearing this on the record. Threshold (8-Bit) was featured in the credits and is a lot of fun. Some of the songs on here had to grow on me, while others are ones where I get why they only used a few seconds of during the film.

Final Rating: 7/10
