EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s not much dialogue in this installment of the Mad Max franchise, but Junkie XL more than makes up for it with this adrenaline-pumping soundtrack. The Dutch producer plunges the listener straight into this dystopian world on opening tracks “Survive” and “Escape,” with thundering drums and relentlessly sawing strings reminiscent of Bernard Herrmann’s work on Hitchcock films. Things settle down to haunting effect on the grandly orchestrated “Immortan’s Citadel” before overdriven guitars and pounding rhythms return to drive the movie home at top speed.
