As J.R. Jones put it, the creators "couldn't be more determined in their courtship of cult status," though they do so without bogging down the story. Despite the peculiar cast of characters who fill the movie, the music by Frank's band, the Soronprfbs, is not that odd. I expected the fake group to sound really bizarre—for one thing, the members' references to the public's distaste for their music suggested it could be really out there. But I still took to much of what I heard even though the Soronprfbs music isn't exceedingly strange—that is with the exception of a short, jarring ditty that Frank calls "his most likable song ever."
My favorite of the songs and half-realized musical ideas from Frank is "I Love You All," a moody indie-pop number propelled by mellow Krautrock bass and a lovely, haunting, and simple chorus. "I Love You All" is today's 12 O'Clock Track; if you're like me, you'll play it at least once a day every day for the foreseeable future.
