OST: “Paper Heart” (Lakeshore Records)

Paper Heart is a mockumentary by actress Charlyne Yi in which she goes around do discover what love is. She then falls in love in Michael Cera and we sit back and watch the wackiness begin. Yi and Cera both play themselves and they also decided to help score their film with some prodding from director Nick Jasenovec.

Nick, you should have kept quiet because this “score” is the worst piece of score music in a very long time. I think I can honestly say a group of 1st graders in music class have more talent then Cera and Yi in making music.

Think about all those Kill Rock Stars, K and Sub Pop cute little pop-punk artists that blossomed for a couple of years. The sound was very spartan, sparse but they had talent. Yi and Cera sound like they were given instruments for the first time and told to play them while being recorded.

And Yi trying to sing???? Who do I sue for ear damage and making my cat go crazy in attacking my CD player?
Paper Heart may be a little “personal” film for Yi and Cera but next time, save 100.00 bucks and hire a band that knows how to at least play a little.

Just bloody awful.
