Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Cult-hero film directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez have teamed up for Grindhouse, their double-feature homage to the 60s, 70s, and 80s B-movie exploitation genres. Reviving original tracks from those decades and more, the soundtrack reaches back with the same hip, offbeat attitude that has helped make Tarantino and Rodriguez two of the most admired auteurs of the MTV generation.

Amazon.com

Directors Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez spent $53 million to pay loving tribute to the vintage hundred-thousand-dollar exploitation fare that inspired Grindhouse's two-movies-for-the-price-of-one thrill ride. Tarantino's half of the exercise (which also includes Robert Rodriguez's self-scored Planet Terror) features another effusive slice of the director's eclectic musical sensibility to underscore its manic tale of stuntman/psycho-killer Kurt Russell and his muscle-car-fueled exploits. Tarantino works from a familiar formula that variously mixes evocative, semi-obscure Italian film cues from Morricone and Dinaggio, contrasting slices of '60s catalog from the great Jack Nitzsche and Brit Invasion also-rans DDDBM&T and some '70s fodder from both ends of the Top 40 via Smith and T. Rex, also stirring in a savory mid-disc run of R&B that stretches from PG&E's upbeat read of "Stagger Lee" through more familiar fare from Joe Tex, Eddie Floyd, and the Coasters. The director also serves up a couple of those deliciously off-kilter obscurities that have come to be his musical trademark as a coda: Eddie Beram's thumping "Riot in Thunder Alley" and April March's infectious ditz-pop take on Serge Gainsbourg's loopy "Chick Habit." --Jerry McCulley

When I discovered that the soundtrack for Grindhouse was split in two, I was honestly very pleased. This meant a complete set of songs for both films (and each is certainly long enough to qualify as a feature film) and therefore another complete Tarantino score to add to my collection.

Tarantino has made a misstep or two in his career like most filmmakers, but his soundtracks have never, ever missed the mark. Death Proof is no exception. Regardless of how you feel about this one, the soundtrack is fantastic. As per usual, it is a collection of quasi-obscure 70's rock and R&B, interspersed with film dialogue you're likely to smile to, and some vintage Ennio Morricone.

In my opinion, this is in close competition with the Pulp Fiction soundtrack (which I feel is a benchmark for good scoring), and makes for excellent listening in the car, as it flows quite well, genre-jumping around a little less than the former.

The verdict... Buy it!

Any time a new Tarantino movie comes out, I'm amazed at how much I love the music. Even though the music is rarely in my preferred genre. I'm a hard rock lover, and Tarantino's tastes lie more in the field of pop/rock. Usually older, lesser-known pop/rock. He has an amazing talent for plucking these forgotten songs out of obscurity and using them to stunning effect in his films. Death Proof is no exception. As usual, it contains of wide variety of musical styles. The soundtrack features the likes of T. Rex's Jeepster, Jack Nitzsche's The Last Race, Ennio Morricone, and a wonderful pop song from forgotten '60s pop group, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich called Hold Tight. The real gem on the soundtrack, in my opinion, is April March's Chick Habit, which appears over the end credits. As one reviewer previously stated, once you hear it this song will remain with you for a long time. But that's okay, it's a great song. Where does Tarantino find this music? He's a great filmmaker and a genius with soundtracks. Check out this music, it's the perfect companion piece to Tarantino's excellent film, Death Proof. The better of the two Grindhouse features in my opinion. One of the reasons that Death Proof is so good is this wonderful, distinctive soundtrack. Fantastic from beginning to end.

I must admit before purchasing the soundtrack, I tried to hunt down a way to download two or three songs from the C.D., but true to Quentin Tarrantino, you have to take the whole package. (Even though his tenacity hasn't prevented 'Kill Bill' from being divided into two volumes, and the double feature 'Grindhouse' project has been split in two with 'Death Proof' and 'Planet Terror' respectively. For me it's a good thing for the latter development that I didn't have to buy the score of 'Planet Terror,' too.)

Anyway, I digress. We're here to share the merits of the soundtrack, so lets get back on track and not dilly-dally around like in the movie! The two most coveted tracks cover the movie's two climaxes. So top honors go to the big and bouncy "Hold Tight," with its especially dizzying crescendo. (Can't you still picture those pretty girls smiling and nodding their heads to the music in my favorite scene before it all turned ugly?) Then, there's the infectious and delightfully irritating "Chick Habit" by April March. (Now who was the agent who thought of that name?)

Don't expect the rest of the C.D. to be as exhiliarating. Yet, T. Rex's "Jeepster" and Willie DeVille's rollickin' roadhouse blues number "It's So Easy" come remarkably close.

Most of the rest consists of good, slow, and obscure blues (including "Stagolee," The Coasters' "Down in Mexico," and Eddie Floyd's "Good Love, Bad Love") It's also nice to have a late sixties version of Burt Bacharach's "Baby It's You". As far as instrumentals go, "Riot in Thunder Alley" is decent, as is the opener "The Last Race," which adds tension to the proceedings. For variety, the ride slows down for a while on the truly beautiful piano instrumental "Sally and Jack".

Once again, director Quentin Tarantino brings us a collection of forgotten treats for his latest movie's soundtrack. Opening with the throttle filled Last Race from composer Jack Nitzsche, I felt that I was going to be in for a ride. I don't find all the tracks to be pure gems, and the usual dialogue spots sort of get in the way, but some of these are worth ever penny and more. Eddie Floyd, a Stax regular, and Joe Tex bring the soul during their joint-juke scene, making you want to cry out your love's name. Smith's cover of Baby It's You outdoes the Shiriles' standard, and is the real hard-to-find long-lost track. The Dave, Dee, Dozy... track, Hold Tight, is great english mod, and lives up to its introduction from the movie's sexy DJ. The movie's closing track, April March's Chick Habit is a swinging, sleezy french-pop gem that borrows itself into the skull (at least mine)like the first time I heard the 5,6,7,8's (until Vonage started using it in their adds, ruining the insanly fun go-go tune). Although I don't enjoy the whole thing, these tracks make-up for any disappointment, and will become a favorite in my library.

"Tarantino's half of the exercise (which also includes Robert Rodriguez's self-scored Planet Terror)" - This is from the Amazon.com review on the previous page claming that this song is on the Death Proof soundtrack. Where is it? Is this a fact?
