The cd isn't really a soundtrack. Well yeah it is, but is only has a few songs on it. I'll get a track listing in a moment.

Still not worth $2.99!

(j/k... Matthew Sweet is one of my favorite songwriters, and Jars of Clay are pretty good, too.)

Nope not a pricing error, I believe the CD only retails for something like $6.99. I picked it up the last time it was $2.99 back in Feb.

I think it is a pricing error, it should have been marked $.05

So I did a little digging and I discovered the reason this soundtrack was not a full fledged soundtrack such as we are accustomed to. It seems that Britney's label realized her last cd, self-titled Britney, was not doing well in the sales dept. Add to that the release of a dvd and a movie & her label believed the Britney machine was going into overload. It was too much for the masses so they scaled this soundtrack back so as to not take sales away from her other merchandise.

In case you cared.....
