Shouldn't it be:

AIR – The Virgin Suicides - Original Motion Picture Score

Like:

Dust Brothers, The ‎– Fight Club - Original Motion Picture Score
James Horner ‎– Aliens (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
John Williams (4) ‎– Amistad (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
Danny Elfman ‎– Batman (Original Motion Picture Score)
Karen O And The Kids ‎– Where The Wild Things Are Motion Picture

And so on... Especially because it says so on every cover?

This album is the soundtrack and score to the film 'the virgin suicides'. The first track 'playground love', is astonishing to say the least. In fact I think the first track and the album cover are worth buying alone. The rest of the tracks are basically instrumental reinterpretations of the first track. Very relaxing. The cover of the album is one of my favorite album covers of all time. A friend of mine even blew the cover art up and framed it as a house warming gift. Anyway, 'playground love' is hands down one of my favorite songs ever.

If you really want to know why this piece of jazzy, soft, melancholic and sad music is that magic you must have seen the movie.
The whole story, which in fact isn’t that important, is being told by one of the boys who are vaguely friends with the girls. And that’s the beauty of “The Virgin Suicides”. To the boys, the Lisbon girls are a mystery, a fascination, an obsession. No one understands them, neither do we, the audience. Cause of this perspective there’s always a 'gap' between the audience and the teenage girls.
That’s what makes the music from 'The Virgin Suicides' really beautiful. If one band manages to put together instrumental harmonies with well-placed and well-played synths, from time to time adding lyrics as well, it is Air.
'The Virgin Suicides' is the band's best release in my opinion! The main theme is repeated exactly on the spots of the CD where you long to hear it again. Beautifully introduced with 'Playground Love’and ending in the somber 'Suicide Underground' which will bring back memories to those who have seen this poetically sad film.
If you like the movie – like I do – this CD is more than a soundtrack. Sofia Copolla definitely knew which band she had to choose to express the poetry and sad story of the Lisbon girls.
The only critic that I have is that some of the tracks are way to short, but nevertheless, a timeless masterpiece
