8/10 falkel Customer review, 4th February 2014
This is as wonderful and bizarre as the film, and feels like as much of an adventure, with a great sense of narrative, there being no breaks between tracks (other than flipping over the cassette!). Folk and traditional touches, or outright translations of old songs, as in "Baloo my Boy", combine with immense electronic soundscapes bordering on the demonic; all carried from one end of the album to the other by haunting seventeenth century-esque cord formations and rhythm.
10/10 Justin Customer review, 20th December 2013
This film is outstanding. A dream come true. It's got hallucinations, magic mushrooms, strobing camera effects, the blackest of British humour... I could go on, but beneath the veneer of the historical action, superb direction and confounding storyline there's the jewel that is the dark nebulous heart of this independent British cinema masterpiece. All of this however, would be meaningless without the masterful cues by Jim Williams collected here on this soundtrack. At times lo-fi, sparse and dry as a funeral drum and at other moments dense and impossibly dark and synthetic. A faint hint of Giorgio Moroder's 'Tony's Theme' from the Scarface OST can even be detected amidst some of the more melodic tracks. Absolute GOLD! Then of course there is Blanck Mass' 'Chernobyl' to forever remind you of the horror that is the infamous 'tent scene'. The fulcrum of the film and a masterstroke of modern cinema. I'm gushing, but if you're ready for this journey, it will take you to places you've never been and this is the one and only soundtrack.
