About this item

Important Made in USA Origin Disclaimer: For certain items sold by Walmart on Walmart.com, the displayed country of origin information may not be accurate or consistent with manufacturer information. For updated, accurate country of origin data, it is recommended that you rely on product packaging or manufacturer information.
As soundtracks to Beatles-inspired movies go, Across the Universe -- the companion piece to Julie Taymor's pseudo-psychedelic fantasmagoria extravaganza that tells the story of the '60s through the tunes of the Fab Four -- has bewilderingly gaudy moments, but it's not as appallingly tacky as Sgt. Pepper or as stuffy as All This and World War II. Still, Taymor's overly designed fantasia is at once too tasteful and too garish, which is an odd combination for an odd movie -- and something that may be more gripping onscreen than it is on record. Dana Fuchs furiously channels Melissa Etheridge (especially on "Helter Skelter") when her performance is isolated as music, although the biggest surprise is that Bono not only looks like a dead ringer for Robin Williams in the film, but he sounds a bit like him too, with overly earnest readings of "I Am the Walrus" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." Much of the rest slides by agreeably enough. Jim Sturgess has the same plainspoken delivery as Ewan MacGregor in Moulin Rouge, which helps in love songs from "All My Loving" to "Something" -- and he does a credible job on the rockabilly revamp of "I've Just Seen a Face" -- while Joe Cocker steals the show with his slinky, funky, spacy version of "Come Together." And, apart from Bono and Fuchs' too-strong soulful belting, nothing is distracting -- but the biggest strength of Across the Universe may be that, when considered in its entirety, it mainly whets the appetite for the original recordings. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

My friend recently bought this CD for way more and found out that it didn't even have all the songs on the CD so I did some research and found the deluxe edition at walmart.com for half as much as she paid. I recommend getting the deluxe 2 CD edition over this one because its less for one, and it has more than double the songs.

I bought this CD as soon as I herd the alt versions of those beutiful Beatles songs. But I found that my interest wore out after a few listens. Of course, I knew these versions wouldn't be as good as the origionals, but they arn't particularly good versions and I havn't listened since a few days after I got the CD.

I saw the movie and fell in love with the music. Even though it does not have one of the songs that I love, it had all the others. I normally purchase my music via itunes but this is a cd that I had to have. Well worth it!

After seeing the movie, I rushed to get this CD. If you're a Beatles fan then this is a must! I was so afraid that they would butcher the songs, but they are amazing!
