A review of the soundtrack album from

Before they WEREN'T rock stars - January 15, 2003
By "omdroparebop" (Cleveland, OH USA)

Never mind "best soundtrack;" this is one of the best records, ever. Back before Randy Newman became a Hollywood hack; before Mick became a recycled old ponce; before Ry Cooder (God bless him) became a full time archivist; before rap became an industry; before Jack Nitzche became, well, dead; this is what they were capable of. (Remember; the film was made back when Anita Pallenberg looked good ...). Every cut on this disc is masterful, rip-roaring, full of dark ecstasy. Not a throwaway in the bunch. Jack Neitzche stitched together this mad, joyous, terrifying collection. I don't think anyone has done a better job since, painting a soundscape of acid,[and] bad whiskey .... A recent quote from Charlie Manson could apply: "I was crazy back when crazy meant something."
