The soundtrack to Little Birds is one I thought I wouldn't really enjoy and, while there are tracks that I wasn't too keen on, on the whole this is an enjoyable collection of songs.
The album lasts for 37 min, 39 sec and consists of 12 tracks. Personal highlights include the hauntingly beautiful 'Alison's Theme'; 'This Town'; 'September Gurls' (which reminded me of Cheap Trick; and 'Little Birds'. In all honesty, other than 'Another Man Don' Gone' there wasn't a track that I wouldn't listen to again.
If you enjoyed the movie, then you'll love this soundtrack.
