Review

The soundtrack to director Scott Hicks' film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' (The Notebook, A Walk to Remember) romantic teen drama Lucky One features 12 songs from the likes of Joshua Radin, Mayfield, Early Winters, and Ponderosa. Book-ended by a pair of emotional, midtempo ballads (Jules Larson's bouncy "You Know It's True" and Brandi Carlile's yearning, nostalgia-fueled "The Story"), Lucky One's playlist, which does not include any portions of composer Mark Isham's score, stays true to its source material by focusing on confessional singer/songwriter balladry and punk-kissed emo pop. ~ James Christopher Monger
