Trainspotting’s soundtrack was one of the more impactful in cinema history: it introduced a generation to Iggy Pop and formed a perfect document for UK music’s twin signature movements in the ‘90s: Britpop and rave. Much like its celluloid counterpart, the stars return here (The Prodigy hand “Lust for Life” a colossal do-over and Underworld rewire “Born Slippy”), but it’s the new talent that takes center-stage. Wolf Alice’s sublime “Silk” connects to the movie’s pulse and Young Fathers’ three contributions capture its jagged, uneasy atmosphere.
Haven't seen the movie yet but judging from the soundtrack it's gotta be just as good as the first one. Great tunes!
CONCOCTED & CONTRIVED - NO THANX!!!!!
I have never "canned" a record on iTunes, but this one deserves littl else. It is a shameless conjured, manufactured CASH-GRAB to try to look super cool and groovy by doing such a disservice to these trax and artists. Sure, it will sell, but it is so CONTRIVED until one thinks it is more of a REALITY RECORD than anything else. Trainspotting's soundtrack was legendary for its unique-ness. This attempt to recreate descecrates the original. At least that's how I see it .....
It's not bad!
Despite similarities to past glories, it's not that bad listening to the thing. Dare I say some songs are really good, even. It will probably make more sense once I see the film and how the songs work there.
