This a strange and seductive collection from Jozef van Wissem & SQÜRL (the band of Jim Jarmusch) which floods your ears with a delightful mix of uneasy but embracing music. It does help immensely if you have seen the movie, but if not it will still leave its emotional thumbprint, just without the haunting images it conjures up.

The music is a mix of lightly blended guitars, some exotic instrument I don't know, drums and more heavy electric guitars. It is both heady and enticing but with a harsh metallic undertow. In a way it evokes the two distinct continents that the movie is set in. The rock sounds of Detroit and the more earthy and rhythmic music of North Africa.

The pace is slow and heavy and can make you feel somewhat drugged by it, almost like being a bit hungover but in a good way.

The album is split into halves, the first being the music from the portion of the film set in Detroit and the second part when they move to Tangier.

I won't go into a track by track review but I will comment on a few of the highlights. The second track is a remix of 'Funnel of Love', it is slowed down to almost be hypnotic and given a grungy flavour. Feeling almost as if it is an old LP set to play on a clapped out and slow turntable with something altogether different playing in the next room. It works well though and as the opening track of the movie it sets the tone of the album perfectly.

As the tracks progress they start to drift from the Motown/Detroit/Rock infused offerings and begin to morph towards the easier listening latter tracks, The pivotal track is 'Spooky Action at a Distance' which you could happily slow dance to in a smoke filled dive, feeling very 'cool' whilst doing it.

I love Jim Jarmush and his films. Only Lovers Left Alive is no exception. Partly because of the music. Music is one of the most prominent aspects of it. And there is a very good reason for it. It's simply brilliant. Hypnotic, atmospheric and moody. I bought this soundtrack immediately after I came back from the cinema. It is great to listen to in its own right. Highly recommend it.

It's a soundtrack so it probably works best if you've seen the film - but dim and ost are both so hip you'll walk differently for a while after.

Having recently seen the film at our local independent cinema and loved it, I 'needed' to get hold of the music - music is such an integral part of the film, and creates much of the atmosphere. This is an album of experimental sounds, guitars and electronica, evoking the spirit of a broken-down Detroit or Tangier at night. The soundscapes are broad and atmospheric, but not so obscure that you can't dance to them... There is also one song, Hal by Yasmine Hamdan (a Lebanese singer who is briefly featured in the film performing the song), which is as beautiful as the rest of the soundtrack and fits alongside it perfectly. Most of the music is by the film's director, Jim Jarmusch's band SQURL, often in collaboration with Josef Van Wissem. I highly recommend this album in its own right to anyone who loves experimental and atmospheric music with great dynamic range, rhythm and soul, and for anyone who has enjoyed the film, this is a must-have!

Amazing blend of contemporary lute with grunge-rock, not like anything else I've heard. The film is good too, but this soundtrack stands on its own.

Absolutely one of the best original soundtracks around, and the best aspect of the film. It's a slow sort of spaced-out blending of eastern music and fuzzed, grunge/shoegaze style guitar sounds that produces an oddly calming effect in a white-noise kind of way.
Each track is beautifully and hypnotically crafted, i remember leaving the film with my ears just buzzing! Jim Jarmusch's other music with his band SQÜRL is also great - i recommend listening to it whilst out in public places, like the Underground, to get that my-life-is-a-film-with-a-dramatic-soundtrack kind of vibe going!

I fell in love with the music in this film and I had to have the soundtrack. I was not disappointed. Each piece of music is wonderful in it's own unique way.

Starting from the sleeve, the blood-red vinyl and up to the mystery-evoking music, this is a complete aesthetic experience. I play it again and again.
