It's been observed that there's a lot of variance in the music, but I do think it's held together by a certain theme, a depiction of a way of life - squalor (Mile End, 2:1), desperatley sincere attempts to find some happiness or amusement (Lust For Life, Atomic, For What You Dream Of), an underlying and understandable sense of desperation (Sing and Perfect Day, the only songs which I thought perfectly matched their respective scenes in the movie), made bearable by the occasional glimpse of real, innocent sweetness (Temptation).
Taken seperatley, the songs are again very strong; there are great commerical hits like 'Temptation' and 'Born Slippy,' and more obscure but excellent tracks like 'Sing,' which I don't think can be found on any other album, but which I think is one of Blur's best songs, ever. The instrumental tracks are also good, particularly 'Trainspotting' itself.

A tremednous animus underlies this album, and it's long enough past that many of its songs feel classic, embedded in cultural lexicon. Read morePublished on July 5, 2014 by JB
If you like electronic beats, this would be an album worth getting. I'm surprised that Orbital wasn't on here since they did the opening theme song to this movie. Read morePublished on January 31, 2014 by SouthernBoy
