In the wake of Britpop's messy demise, Trainspotting carved out its own place in the psyche of youth-culture, providing the must-have poster, the must-have soundtrack and the wasted, gaunt allure of heroin chic. The skeletal look falls in and out of fashion and the posters are long faded, but it's the soundtrack that still resonates with the defiance of youthful rebellion. No simple mid-1990s period piece, Trainspotting pitches the cold-turkey pangs of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day" and the casual decadance of Iggy Pop's "Nightclubbing" against more contemporary hymns to inertia; Blur's "Sing" stands its ground, as does the behemoth rumble of Underworld's ubiquitous hedonist's anthemn "Born Slippy". Only a few tracks grate; Sleeper's cover of Blondie's "Atomic" is utterly pointless, and Elastica's "2:1" is unspectacular Britpop fare. Still, that's drugs for you, kids--you've got to take the good times with the bad.

 




A fantastic soundtrack and even better on vinyl.
The sound quality is first class,I originally bought the cd version way back when the film came out and this vinyl version has more depth and a 3 dimensional sound that the cd lacks.Perfect day by Lou Reed sounds particularly good on this format....a real joy to listen to.
The vinyl is orange(same colour as the trainspotting banner) and looks super cool playing on my black Linn LP12.
Do yourself a favour and buy this Lp,you'll love it!!
