While the movie Amélie deserves and has received accolades, Yann Tiersen’s soundtrack should not.

Beginning as a mediocre sampling of Western-European sounds typical of the French composer’s work, the tracks quickly blend into four amorphous blobs of audio. Only three tracks, two of which were composed by others–distinguish themselves by having the variety lacking on the rest of the CD while the final tracks sound like weak attempts at previous tracks.
