Donwill's "Don Cusack in High Fidelity" (2010)

As I was finishing up my coverage of the tenth anniversary of the 2000 film High Fidelity, I received an unsolicited, but very polite, email from Dan Friedman, the Online Marketing Manager of Audio Treats, a marketing company. He alerted me to the existence of the new album by Donwill, a member of a hip hop group called Tanya Morgan (made up of Donwill, MC Ilyas, and Von Pea). This album, apparently, is an homage to High Fidelity like no other.

Some Googling later, I find the official site for Audio Treats, and its entry on this album, which notes:
Don Cusack In High Fidelity is Donwill’s musical representation of the movie from which it took its name. Not only is High Fidelity Donwill’s personal favorite film, but he identified with John Cusack’s character, Rob Gordon, so much that he created an entire album inspired by the movie. Donwill incorporated personal stories of falling in love, fearing commitment, hating his job, and learning life lessons, to create a clever and deeply personal musical interpretation of the film. Skillfully and artfully crafted using direct subject matter and quotes from the cult classic, the 16-track personal odyssey will resonate not only with fans of the original movie but also with anyone who has spent time trying to figure out the opposite sex. "The album is based on being in a state of perpetual pre-mid-life crisis," says Donwill. "Nothing in life will give you all the answers, but this album will help people find some of the answers they might be looking for."
Apparently, I'm not the only one with a great fondness for the film. But I'm not certain that I'm as confident as Donwill about the solutions to the problems presented in the film. Oh, well. (You can hear some of the tracks from Donwill's new album at his MySpace page here.).
