2014 Best Soundtrack Winner

Boyhood

I wouldn’t necessarily want to listen to it as an album, but within context no collection of music did more to act as a companion to a film this year.  The music works both as a catalog of a recent time period and as a means of bringing things out of certain scenes and making you see recent popular music in a new light.  It managed to turn “Yellow” by Coldplay into a from a bloated rock song into a childhood ode and even somehow managed to show how “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” could seem like a pretty cool song if listened to at just the right age.
