"The soundtrack for About Time, the 2013 British romantic comedy from Love Actually writer and director Richard Curtis, dutifully reflects its story's time travel premise with a 17-song set of (mostly) previously released selections from the likes of The Killers ("Mr. Brightside"), Groove Armada ("At the River"), Amy Winehouse ("Back to Black"), and Nick Cave ("Into My Arms"). Ben Folds offers up a new, heavily orchestrated version of his sentimental 2001 ballad "The Luckiest," while ex-Dream Academy mastermind Nick Laird Clowes offers up a pair of wistful piano pieces ("Golborne Road" and "The About Time Theme") from his evocative score."
James Christopher Monger, Allmusic.com"
"Soundtracks to Richard Curtis movies are an event in their own right. This one is a wonderful event. The range of artists is perhaps more eclectic than, say, Love Actually, and is perhaps more contemporary - well, it is for me anyway. Of course I have my favourites, as you will have yours. Amy Winehouse is a superb if sad presence, whereas Jimmy Fontana (Il Mondo) is lighter and more bouncy. Sugarbabes ("Push the Button)" and t.AT.u ("All the Things She said)" may be a bit too "pop" for some tastes, but the following track - "When I Fall in Love" (Barbar Gough et al) restores the pace, and perhaps the peace. The track most directly referenced in the movie is Nick Cave's typically haunting "Into My Arms." Very evocative once you have seen the (excellent) movie.All in all a very good album, and a pleasant way to sample artists you may not know so well. It will probably work better as a complement to the movie, but also stands on its own as an intelligent collection of music.
