The soundtrack to Searching for Sugar Man—the record that finally landed Rodriguez on the charts—is a best-of compilation that highlights his taste for soulful melodies, sparse arrangements, and unorthodox aesthetic choices. The opening track, "Sugar Man," is a standout, balancing a taut string section and erratic squeals of feedback atop a simple acoustic-guitar hook—and leaving enough room up there for Rodriguez's solemn, sighing croon to soar. —Leor Galil, 2012
