While I think the film warranted a double-disc set with more music on each disc (they could have maxed out the length of the discs) I'll take this. And the 2 different discs definitely have their own flavors. I prefer the green disc as it mixes some good gothy rock (Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Pogues), ska (The Specials) and then some fun faves (A-Ha, Grandmaster Flash). One complaint: while it's great to have a track of the Joe Strummer score (the pulsing War Cry) it would have been nice to hear the entire score on disc, as it was a nice element to the film. Ah, who knows, maybe they'll put out a disc 3.
Nevertheless, this is a fine, fine disc.
Oh yeah, the version of "Blister In The Sun" (track #1) by the Violent Femmes on this soundtrack is not the original version from 1982 which appeared in the film. Instead, we are treated to a fine remake (I'm not talking about "Blister 2000"). Does anybody know why the original isn't here?
