The omission of GSYBE is a crime. The scene that includes East Hastings sets the tone for the entire movie and would not have been the same without it. I felt it was the perfect marriage of music and cinema.

Brian Eno is one of the greatest composers ever. Did you know that the track that features in 28dl ("An Ending (Ascent)") was originally composed for a NASA documentary? If it's good enough for NASA, it's good enough for a zombie movie! ^_^

BTW the reason the GSYBE track is not on the soundtrack is because they are hardcore anti-capitalists, in fact Boyle had to fight with GSYBE to get the song in the film but after he showed them a later draft of the screenplay they let him use it (or so I've heard). That doesn't make it any less of a depressing ommission though. Pure beauty in audio form.

Great soundtrack. I was hooked on it for a long ass time when I first got it. "In the House(In a Heartbeat)" is my favorite of the whole album.

Definitely a good soundtrack - just the thing to have on your ipod when walking through empty streets. Altho the absence of GSYBE is a real disappointment coz it set the whole tone of the movie, it still works without it.

Unusually, the soundtrack to the sequel is just as good, even if the film was far inferior to its predecessor.

Who the hell are you talking to testtube?

Also I've really liked the music in this movie but I never knew where you could buy movie soundtracks.

On a side note, Grandaddy's contribution, "AM180", is also the theme tune for Charlie Brooker's Screen Wipe. Mr. Brooker is a super hilarious, snarky tv personality in England who rips on everything bad in the media, on tv, or in the news. He also did a zombie flick for Britain's Channel 4 called Dead Set.

Protoclown, please consider reviewing "Dead Cities" by Future Sound Of London sometime.
