What used to be a sport that has been largely ignored is all of a sudden the next "cool" thing. The movie "Men With Brooms" is definitely o­ne of the reasons for this. The soundtrack is a collection including eight previously unreleased tracks by an all-star Canadian line-up. Sarah Harmer teams up with The Tragically Hip o­n "Silver Road", a soft pop-rock tune. Her usual charm sets the pace for what's to come. Kathleen Edwards voice and singing style is similar to Sarah's o­n "Hockey Skates." But this particular song seems to lack emotion. The Tragically Hip takes center stage o­n "Throwing Off Glass." Fans of "Our Lady Peace will enjoy their interpretation of "Life." Sean Macdonald gets spiritual in the song entitled "God," a fast paced rock tune with the harmonica and guitar riffs pounding through the speakers. Big Sugar struts their stuff o­n "Diggin' A Hole." Tom Wilson's raspy voice is just plain annoying o­n "Planet Love." Acclaimed Canadian band Matthew Good Band get heavy o­n the guitars in "Hello Time Bomb," which is very different compared to their songs that have been playing o­n the radio. This song is much more edgy. The multi talented Chantal Kreviazuk sings her heart out o­n "Leading Me Home," which she co-wrote with her hubby Rain Maida (lead singer of Our Lady Peace). Even the lead actor of the film, Paul Gross gives singing a shot o­n "Kiss You Till You Weep" and surprisingly gives a pretty decent performance.
