The marriage of head Devo spud, Mark Mothersbaugh, as producer with the music of lounge gods, Combustible Edison, produced this kitch child of easy listening. Once again, Quentin Tarantino stacks the alternative cards in his favor, masterfully joining modern retro-trend music to alternative acting faves (Iona Skye, Marissa Tomei and Lili Taylor) at the hip. Fun and fabulous, Esquivel is slipped in for the pinch of the past and a crossover for those who know him from MTV-land. This is the soundtrack to eat TV dinners to with the wife or for the local lounge where you and your gal can throw back a couple of Manhattans and talk about marriage and heading for your honeymoon in the Pink Champagne Room at Niagara Falls.
