Magnolia: Music from the Motion Picture
You can debate the merits of the movie, with its heavy-handed symmetry, overblown symbolism, and scene after scene of beautiful actors falling to pieces. But it's hard to deny the magic of the soundtrack, where Mann reasserts her position atop the hierarchy of singer / songwriters. It's well worth the twelve bucks you'll spend, if only for "Deathly," which director Paul Thomas Anderson claims is the lynchpin of the movie.
