4.0 out of 5 stars great tracks but in a new order, 6 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Control (Audio CD)
'Control' the CD is not a soundtrack. At the time of watching the film I thought 'what a great soundtrack'. It's what you'd hope to hear (Bowie/Roxy/Iggy/Velvets/Kraftwerk/.....Joy Divison) if you already knew the story. But the CD soundtrack completely reconfigures the film tracklisting.

The first sequence cementing Curtis and his pre-band outsider/music-love is accompanied by Bowie's Drive In Saturday, this comes 11 tracks in on the CD. Jean Genie doesn't even figure on the CD, tho' it does in the film.

If a soundtrack is designed to give you an aural sense of the film and its progression then this one doesn't. The CD is reorganised as an 'All Back to Ours' with Ian Curtis'... (?). That's not such a bad thing musically, 'cos the New Order one's great, but this one is supposed to be a soundtrack and it's not what it says on the tin. Lovely music though!
