Normally we do not even bother with compilations or soundtracks, but in this case, an exception has been made. The Me Before You soundtrack, which is filled with Interscope artists, is a brilliantly well designed blended group of solid musicians that are needing a bit of exposure (Max Jury, Jessie Ware) and established superstars (X Ambassadors, The 1975, Imagine Dragons, Ed Sheeran).
What is interesting is that each track and artist brings their unique flavor to the party, but it is a cohesive set that does not breakdown at any point. Nothing feels particularly out of place and keeps the drama moving. The Me Before You soundtrack feels almost like a throwback to when you would make a mixtape (yeah, you remember those?). There was an art to carefully selecting the order and the specific song to make a comprehensive story.
In any case, it is probably one of the better structured soundtracks in quite some time. There was actually some thought put into the Me Before You playlist. If you get a chance, take a listen. You might be pleasantly surprised.
The Me Before You soundtrack featuring various artists is available now on iTunes and other major retailers.
