I was nervous about the music as well, but I think it was fine IMO. When taking into account the main theme of Gatsby's life at the end of the book, wanting the present to recede into the past, it makes it actually kind of work in a weird way.
If you have no appreciation/understanding of the book, you will not enjoy it. The rotten tomato critics I've read so far have been pretty damn ridiculous. I understand the music critique, but mod of those people have very obviously not read the book. The movie stayed surprisingly a lot closer to the book than I thought it would.
