Soundtrack Throwback – Divergent (2014)


So, okay.  Not really a “throwback” since this just came out like three months ago so we’ll just say we’re looking back just a bit.  It might not be a conversation worthy soundtrack but it does have some smart points I’d like to mention. For starters, I dig The Mortal Instruments soundtrack more just because this music is catered more to the “popular” young crowd and is primarily centered around pop jams.  Now this is not a bad thing…but I tend to hear this stuff on the radio ALL THE BLOODY TIME!  Why does corporate radio rape my love of music with constant repetition?  WHY?!  A good strength of the soundtrack is that a lot of songs are remixes of pop songs letting them sound happily very different.  A few stand outs for me are the new Ellie Goulding  single, Pia Mia, M83, and BANKS.  Having listened through the album, I noticed that there was a slight inconsistency to genre which I didn’t think matched the album well at all.  It just seemed a bit modge podge-ish.  Well, despite my few dislikes, I did like at least 5 of the songs on the album so percentage wise I can’t argue too much.  But oh…why Snow Patrol?  WHY?
