A motion picture soundtrack, when done properly, should transport you right back to the movie. It should be a perfect mixtape flowing from one song to the next seamlessly. Almost Famous is a near perfect movie and the soundtrack reflects that perfection. Having said that be aware - the track list on this “deluxe edition” version differs from the original release. Several songs from the original are omitted and a couple are added in. Additionally there are a few tracks listed as “previously unreleased” “Almost Famous” versions which are really just the original song with movie dialog dubbed over. Compare this album’s track list with the original to see the differences. This really doesn’t amount to a bad purchase, and it’s still a fantastic album, but it is different and not exactly what I thought I’d be getting.
