If you've already seen the film, then you will know what to expect from this CD, if not, read with interest.
From the first track onwards the listener is confronted with a selection of Drum and bass and progressive dance tracks that go from being almost soothing and calm (Gus Gus, 'Anthem') to just being outright rude (Orbital, 'P.E.T.R.O.L').
Clint Mansell did an amazing job when he composed the score to the almost unknown film, his own entries to the CD are most welcome, with the 'pi' tracks starting and ending the CD as is appropriate.
Quotes from the film are scattered around the CD, those unfamiliar with the fim will be stumped with the relevance, those who are may find themselves reminiscing back to when they first didn't understand what was going on in Darren Aranofsky's directorial debut.
I would strongly recomend this CD to anyone who's seen the film, or even people who are looking for a compilation with a bit more "guts" to it than, say, "Ibiza sunshine cheese chill-choons 7 2002".
To those who are not fans of dance music, then you may well find this just as unpalattable, which is hte only reason I do not give this title a full score of 5, being a democracy and all
