This album really is a treat! The film is great in itself but being a lover of soundtracks I really wanted this one and I was very impressed! Personal favourites include the complete one off that is 'Within you' and the beautiful 'As the world falls down'...I also love the title track 'Underground' A must for any fans of the movie! Lovin it!
