State Of The Nation.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry: OST (Audio CD)
Luke Haines has always been above his peers in the way he uses Britain as his muse. Indeed here he goes so far as to propose a new national anthem.
This soundtrack to the film based on the novel of the same name is compelling. The sound is similar to The Auteurs' last album "How I learned to love the bootboys" but more melodically assured. The songwriting varies from Sakamoto like instrumentals to the final track, a hypnotic, mantra like techno pastiche. In between are sumptuous slices of the writers wit and imagination.
Now we can only hope that the film gets a UK release so we can appreciate these sounds in context.
