Director Todd Haynes's celebration of the sex, drugs, and rock & roll of the British glam era of the early 1970s, Velvet Goldmine, would be nothing without the music that inspired it. A few unusual absentees (no Bowie, Iggy Pop, or New York Dolls?), but folks such as Brian Eno, Roxy Music, Lou Reed, and T-Rex are represented. Several covers from the glam era are performed without much deviation by two supergroups: the Venus in Furs, featuring members of England's elite--Bernard Butler, and Thom Yorke of Radiohead; and Wylde Ratz, featuring Mark Arm of Mudhoney, Ron Asheton of the original Stooges, and Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth. Strongest are the originals submitted to the film: Shudder to Think tame their own experimental excesses to put forth two glam-worthy originals with "Hot One" and "Ballad of Maxwell Demon", and Pulp deliver "We Are the Boys", which runs amuck with the dramatic stage power of the finest glam. --Rob O'Connor

'Velvet Goldmine' is a collection of glam rock songs by glam-influenced bands, both past and present. Shudder To Think wrote one of the album's highlights with 'Ballad Of Maxwell Demon', especially for the film. My favourite tracks are three songs performed by the movie's fictional band Venus In Furs: 'Tumbling Down' (a beautiful song that you could listen to over and over), 'Ladytron' and '2 HB'. Songs that we associate with the era and that everyone will be more familiar with include T-Rex's 'Diamond Meadows' and 'Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me)' by Steve Harley.
If you enjoyed the movie, you'll love the soundtrack. A great introduction to glam-rock!
Now, I don't usualy go for soundtracks, but I kid you not, this is the real McCoy. Many great artists of the day (Placebo, Pulp and even Thom Yorke) have come together to provide excellent music, sounding as though it was made in 1974. This record will be loved by Bowie fans alike and those who have seen and loved the movie. Otherwise, this may not be for you. I classed it 3 stars instead of 4, as the general track arrangement of the album was disapointing.
