An album containing music from or inspired by a certain movie, musical, or television show. Sometimes they are phenomenal: Trainspotting, Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet, and Dark City all had damn fine soundtracks. Unfortunately, they can be a big let down (such was the case for Can't Hardly Wait) when they have all the crap tracks from the film and are obviously made so the record companies can milk them for more than they're worth.
