So I was really surprised when the film and the soundtrack made me fall in love again. There are a few obligatory nods to the first soundtrack but mostly not. The retro feel doesn't feel like pandering to part 1; it appropriately captures the backwards looking theme of nostalgia-obsessed adults trying to reconcile their youth and their present which is epitomized early in this album by "Silk".
My only complaint is not of the content, but that I had to buy the CD and rip it myself -- no mp3 or autorip options available.

1) It fit so incredibly well within the film that you couldn't think of it being any other way.
2) It worked as a stand alone CD, the selection of music was classic.
There's nothing wrong with the music in Trainspotting 2, it's great when accompanied by the film, but it doesn't really work well as s stand alone CD. I'm not too keen on the music on here, save for The Prodigy's remix of Lust for Life, The Clash's White Man In Hammersmith Palais and the superb Slow Slippy!
Not great but not terrible either, one for the collection!
