At this point in his career I feel Tarantinos' soundtracks have became almost as famous as his films, and I feel this newest release fully justifys this!
The movie itself would be far less enjoyable without the soundtrack, and as such fans of the film will immediatly recognise most titles from the album, where some directors use songs as backround music Tarantino activly includes the music in the narrative, meaning many of these songs are also important sections of the film. Dave, Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch's Hold Tight for example holds a certain new irony for fans of the movie. However as with all good soundtracks, is still enjoyable to those unfamiliar with the narrative and the meaning behind this song.
Basically I find fan or not of the movies, Tarantino's soundtracks can completly stand on their own merit as perfect collections of brilliant sixtees and seventees rock, and allow for some brilliant tunes that otherwise would never be heard by most a position in modern culture. Smith's Baby it's You on the soundtrack for example has encouraged me to buy more of her music.
And of course, April March's Chick Habit should stand as reason enough to purchase this product. For fans of the film, this is the final song before the credits, and also the perfect summation of the movies message!
As is typical to soundtracks nowadays, there is the inclusion of some dialogue from the movie, however this is kept down to only three and all are short enough so as not to damage the enoyability of the music. In fact I have found the dialogue to help remind me of the feel of the film, and therefore reflect into the feel of the soundtrack!
