If you can’t get enough of the Hunger Games, even after all the books and the movie, check out this CD! This album stands out among soundtracks as it varies from the typical collection of epic scores that fill a movie. Instead, this becomes another look into the world itself, bringing together the voices and talents of several modern artists and groups such as Arcade Fire, Taylor Swift, Maroon 5, The Decemberists (and more!) showing off songs that were not in the movie. All of the songs on this album were created especially for this project, and each one brilliantly captures a moment from the first book/movie, often told from a new perspective. Lovers of genre-blending will appreciate the mix, as most songs blend folk and pop/rock, but with a little grit and grunge on the fringe, echoing your favorite characters’ struggles, triumphs and heartache.
