So, I can't gush about the film for a few months, as it's still in the cinemas, but there is a release valve - the soundtrack also happens to be very, very good.
First and foremost, for all zombie fanboys, the tracks lifted from the original Dawn of the Dead ARE included here, which is a real bonus. May you never walk through a shopping mall again without humming THAT muzak.
Of course, a couple of clips from a 25 year old film don't suffice, so it helps the rest of the soundtrack keeps up the quality with a combination of classic tunes (be it White Lines or Ghost Town, and both Queen tracks are included as well) with the film's score and, best of all, a fine selection of soundbites from the film itself. And, on occasion, a combination of the three - a track using every utterance of the word "zombie" from the film being one. Also, channel surfing between the news and Morrissey's Panic stick out - although the whole bit isn't there, which would've been good.
However, there is one hidden gem at the end of the CD that is pure comic genius. You'll just need the film to get the joke, and that's all I'm saying, apart from Keith Chegwin was never this amusing.
One of those soundtracks that does justice to a film, and is worth listening to even if you aren't interested in the best British film since Withnail & I. If so, there's something wrong with you. I just plugged the film again, didn't I?
