This is a phenomenal soundtrack album - superbly varied with stonking classics and many changes of mood. Highlights include the Velvet Underground, Boards of Canada and Ween, with a couple of cracking tracks from Can thrown in. Totally and utterly superb.
The perfect compilation is something I've striven after through the years; to suprise and enchant, to lift yet lower, to tease and toy with - but still, above all, deliver. The boys and girls at Warp have done it here with beautiful whimsy. This album offers a wondrous and mystical soundscape journey the film can't possibly live up to...
Personally, I was intrigued by the Can and now ex-Can man Holger Czukay offerings as I'd heard snitches of their stuff before. If that's your tack then here's a cheeky little starter for you; I somehow expected only instrumental stuff - WRONG!! - spool straight to Holger Czukay's Cool In The Pool and lay back to some kooky popfunk that's frighteningly addictive...
If you're an Amazon-junky like me - hopelessly dependent on this SuperPortal to stop the musical rot known as provincial Europe - then this album did what a good compo should: led me straight back to QUICKSEARCH to check out my new findings: check it!
Let's get cool...
the quality of the tracks on the album is brilliant, but it would have been nice to have greater variety. for example, it features two of the most well known tracks by can, as well as 2 tracks from can member holger czukay. the other gripe is that not all of the music used in the film is featured on the disc; ie, the gabba track played in the nightclub, and the mamas and papas track used at the end. however, any album that features the gorgeous broadcast track "you can fall" and any stereolab track, although edited, is welcome. it would have been nice if there was a vinyl edition, but you cant have it always....
while i appreciated receiving this as a gift im not sure if i would have bought this. while an excellent compilation you are quite likely to own much of the material present on the disc, or be disappointed by the lack of new material. if youre a warphead you may also be disappointed by the relative lack of warp type stuff on here.
The CD is both enjoyable and challenging, with some stranger (and funny) tracks by Holger Czukay sitting next to the cheesey pychedelia of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood, plus the dub blow out of Lee 'Scratch' Perry.
Well worth buying.
