At this point, we know just about everything there is to know about Sound City Studios and the Dave Grohl led documentary that chronicles its life, the only thing left to do is hear the music inspired by the Van Nuys studio.

The collection of songs, a jaw-dropping collection of collaboration tracks among some of the biggest names in music (tracklist below) is due in stores on March 12th, but while the Sound City Players are shutting down Hollywood Boulevard to put on a free show this week, you can listen to their original soundtrack in full over at NPR, or down below (via Antiquiet):

Topping out a few minutes short of a solid hour, the eleven song soundtrack seems to have something for everyone, including a few pleasant surprises. Famous names do not necessarily overshadow their lesser known companions. It's worth a listen. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the album on iTunes now.

    Saw the movie the other night... Dave is.awesome! This is a great movie for music fans!
    Album got some ups and downs. It's the matter of taste. But I was hoping that that whole analogue craziness will give us a huge depth of layers of sounds, a meat in bass, a punch in drumms, melodies in guitars and vocals on our faces. I'm far from being an audiophile. But the mix is too..hmmm...flat? I know we're an car-audio and iPod generation. But I was hoping that this album will Fuc* The System! But I'm still waiting for CD/Vinyl. I like 'A Trick With No Sleeve' (Alain Johannes, Dave Grohl, Joshua Homme)
    Sounds like a great mix to me, listening to it through some Sony MDR-1R's and can hear a punch in the drums.
    What you're listening on and the quality of the media can have a huge impact on sound quality. I wouldn't guess the stream was at a remarkably high quality, and I wouldn't normally assume you've got much into your computer's sound system. I've seen Sound City twice - once at home on my tv with big box speakers that sound great and once at a friend's house on those thin little strips of speakers they put in most flat panel tvs. Needless to say, the difference in sound quality was remarkable, coming from the same source material. On my tv, it almost felt like I was in the studio; the drums were so full and crisp, as well as the guitars and the vocals and everything else. At his house, it sounded like we were listening to the speaker on an iPad. The only major difference was in the speakers, but it made all the difference in the world.
    Everything is a matter of taste and mood, so for the first listening i prefer tracks 2,5,6,7 and eleven. The whole thing is a little disapointing and thats my fault...to high expectations!
