Product Description & Reviews

With pop song-collection soundtracks becoming an increasingly popular way for artists and labels to market new music, the connections to the films they're supposed to be supporting becomes increasingly tenuous. Witness Trainspotting #2;. Inspired by the success of director Danny Boyle's bleakly hilarious tale of a band of smacked-out Scottish louts and the strong pop collection that underscored it, #2 is nearly as thematically compelling, if artistically suspect. These are songs that, as the producers put it, "inspired the filmmakers or (have) been inspired by the film." Thus we get star Ewan McGregor's memorable "choose life" monolog sampled and looped over the dance music of PF Project or Joy Division's "Atmosphere" simply because the director "always wanted Joy Division in the film." What's next? Gone With the Wind featuring Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Free Bird"? --Jerry McCulley
