Until the End of the WorldThis was a weird film, and it deserves a weird soundtrack, and did it ever get one. There are tantalizing snippets of a wonderfully low-key, cello-drenched Graeme Revell score, but the rest of the album is comprised of an eclectic list of “various artists.” The best entries here are those by the Talking Heads, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, REM, and U2. Also represented are Depeche Mode, T-Bone Burnett, Daniel Lanois, and a rather dull cover of “Summer Kisses, Winter Tear”s by Julee Cruise of Twin Peaks fame. If only for the 3 out of 4lovely tidbits of the score, I recommend this one.
