Music from Vanilla Sky (Bandbox Exclusive Amber Vinyl)


The surreal dreamscape world that Cameron Crowe created in 'Vanilla Sky' wouldn't seem as bizarre and enigmatic without the help of the film's evocative soundtrack. 'Music From Vanilla Sky' is filled with some of the biggest names in modern music, with stirring songs from R.E.M., Radiohead, Paul McCartney, and Peter Gabriel all collected here, and that's only on Side A. These 17 brilliant tracks all help add to the ominous mystery and mood of the film, with lyrical and emotional cues hidden in the songs that help viewers make sense of Crowe's cryptic visual narrative. Bandbox's exclusive 2LP set is pressed on lovely amber colored vinyl in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of 'Vanilla Sky,' The compilation is accompanied by a 16-page zine featuring essays examining some of the standout tracks featured on the soundtrack, the secret Easter eggs hidden in the film, Cameron Crowe's impressive creative history in movies, music, and journalism, celebrated singles from R.E.M.'s illustrious past (the only band featured twice on the film's soundtrack), as well as a look at the legendary career of the film's star, Tom Cruise.
