inglourious Bastards Soundtrack

As far as I know, this this is the first soundtrack without dialogue excerpts from the film. The genre range is exactly what you expect— a great mix of American funk and European pop and folk music from between World War II and present day. To be fair, it's got some great tracks of course, but overall this is definitely not "essential on vinyl" or "a must own on reel-to-reel" for serious QT fans. Perhaps it could have used some film samples and another track or two more. But it's hard to knock a great movie soundtrack for being exactly that, a great movie soundtrack.

The version I bought on iTunes includes a 15-minute video interview with Elvis Mitchell which explains all the musical choices Tarantino made for the film and the thought process behind them. That was a nice bonus.
