August Rush (Soundtrack) (Soundtrack)
by Various Artists
Released: Nov 2007
The concept behind the August Rush soundtrack is difficult to tease out. The album is a mix of Mark Mancina's score and established pop songs covered by guitarist Kaki King and actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who also appears in the movie. Yet August Rush is no musical, although it's about an orphan's musical genius. The soundtrack is definitely packed with feel-good jammers, especially "Bach/Break," which fuses the famous composer with anthemic alt-rock perfect for overcoming life's many obstacles.
