As much as I love the work of James Lavelle (of UNKLE), I sometimes fear that many of the things he lays his hands on nowadays begin to sound slightly overly similar. Luckily, this works perfectly with Sexy Beast. His dark melodies and beats reccur in variations throughout the film and album, yet they are different enough not to sound too samey and dull. This man really captures the essence of Sexy Beast. The orchestral tracks are beautiful, and the Stranglers, Dean Martin and Henry Mancini tracks the perfect anditidote to the Lavelle work. Overall, the musical competance and brilliant soundbites from the film make this an album worth owning for anyone with an interest in cult films, or intersting music.
