The soundtrack to the 2005 romantic comedy, A LOT LIKE LOVE piles on loads of smart, heady pop that focuses on the intricacies of love and relationships. This winning collection of songs features Third Eye Blind's jangly 1997 hit "Semi-Charmed Life," Ray LaMontagne's Van Morrison-like ode "Trouble," Butch Walker's Paul Westerberg-meets-Lifehouse slice of self-doubt "Maybe It's Just Me," and Hooverphonic's lush, trip-hoppy "Mad About You." And while Chicago's soft-rock standard "If You Leave Me Now" packs in desperation amidst lush strings and Peter Cetera's croon, the Jet ballad "Look What You've Done" exudes frustration over a melancholy piano backdrop. Of the younger artists on the soundtrack, Aqualung particularly impresses with the orchestral "Brighter Than Sunshine," and Anna Nalick contributes "Breathe (2 AM)," which recalls both Fiona Apple and Alanis Morissette.
