The Romeo & Juliet Soundtrack This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Happiness, violence, love ... are these all words to describe "Romeo and Juliet ... the soundtrack"? Yes, the soundtrack. Along with the new '90 version of the William Shakespeare's classic play comes a soundtrack with as much intensity as the movie.

On this CD, there is a great variety of songs to ensure listening pleasure for every type. From beautiful ballads to alternative songs to gospel, almost every genre is represented. For lovers of pop music, there is "Lovefool" by the Cardigans, a peppy and catchy tune getting airplay on radio stations. "#1 Crush" by Garbage, also a hit, is a haunting number also being played often. If you're in the mood to get mellow, there's "Kissing You" by Des'ree. Anyone who saw the movie remembers this beautiful song, which is rightfully nicknamed the love theme of "Romeo and Juliet." Into R&B? Well, you aren't left out. Gospel-like, up-and-coming R&B artist Quindon Tarver shows his vocal talent in the inspirational song "Everybody's Free (to feel good)."

Aside from all of these fabulous numbers, there is a great added feature. Not only does this CD play music, it also doubles as a multimedia CD-ROM ready to be used on any PC or Macintosh computer. As soon as it is loaded into your CD-ROM drive, you have pictures to be downloaded. This feature is especially great for all the Clare Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio fans out there!

Another bonus is the attractive cover. Once opened, the inside is just as impressive. It features extensive layouts of the scenes from the movie, as well as quotes from the play.

This CD is highly recommended for any music- or movie-lover. Whether you loved the movie, hated it, or didn't even see it, this wonderful ensemble of music will definitely be a worthwhile investment for any CD collection

Anyone know the name of the artist that did the art for the CD itself? Not the booklet or the cover art, but the actual CD art that shows a sunset with some palm trees with angels in the trees?
