CD Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you know this movie, then you are probably aware of how important it is. Not many movies have the ability to change ones life. This is one of those few. The sountrack thus automatically becomes something of a soundtrack to one's life. Whether you're just waking up after a particularly long night and listening to the opening track (searching desperately for your cigarettes), or if you're driving through the countryside and enjoying the plantive piano tune of Monty's Rolls, you'll have no choice but to smile at the luck that you've had: you're one of the desperate few who have gotten a hold of this elusive soundtrack, a soundtrack to one of the most elusive-but-rewarding movies of all time."
A quintissential English soundtrack
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A CD worthy of laudation. This must be the soundtrack for a lost generation of English students. Beaten up by Thatcher, swept up by Labour. Each track is solemly attached to a more-than-memorable scene from Bruce Robinson's film. Read the screenplay and loose yourself on an autumn afternoon. From the brassy introduction of King Curtis cover through to the tea-time jazz of gramphonic delights, if you're lost then this has to be bought."
Joy of the north and the end of an era
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This soundtrack captures an indefinable and a wonderously depressing Englishness, the essence of rain, grey skies, grey cities and green lands. From the first opening smoke filled days to the creak of leather along the watch tower there is an underlying rythmn to each piece that not only makes this film what it is but unites each track in a lazy but precise way. Music for indolents indeed."
