The Center of the World

The Center of the World


Six Degrees

Movie soundtracks are either blessings in disguise or just bummers because the tracks you wanted on CD weren’t included. Having not seen The Center of the World, the latter isn’t a concern for me. Instead, I get to “evaluate” this soundtrack based on its musical value. It’s subjective, but I always try to be as far as possible, especially since I frequently buy movie soundtracks and scores. That disclaimer out of the way, The Center of the World soundtrack is a mind-blower. Maybe I relate too much to the short description of the movie on the promo, but something tells me that many who have found themselves immersed “in the digital world” have found themselves “unaccustomed to normal social interaction.” This is the soundtrack for us. The soundtrack opens with Laika’s “Black Cat Bone,” and continues to lay the foundation for what I can only assume is an amazing film. Having heard a little over half the tracks previously on other releases, I focused primarily on the previously unknown tracks. They are each placed perfectly between the known tracks and flow like water down a stream. Nickie Love’s •Daylight Tripping” is probably my favorite of these unknown tracks with its sultry vocals and sexy hip-hop beat. If the music included on the soundtrack is any indication of the film’s quality, I’m going to have to find a theater that is showing the film. As always, Six Degrees doesn’t know the meaning of a lackluster release. Check it out.

Six Degrees Records,
