Dare I say that I'm a little disappointed? The Kinks song in the trailer got me all excited for another great Wes Anderson soundtrack, but I'm not so sure about this one. Did I really want him to make us another British Invasion mix tape? The answer is yes.

It looks like most of the songs are actually from other films. So maybe he's using the soundtrack as a way to introduce people to new things, and that's fine. I'm sure movies from India will be soon clogging hipsters' Netflix queues everywhere. Quick, add them now!

I must say, I'm a little dissapointed with this tracklisting as well. The soundtracks from The Royal Tenenbaums and Life Aquatic were much, much better.
