Interesting looking soundtrack. Was expecting more of a selection of different artists but Christopher Young has done some excellent scores in the past. Most notable however is the contribution from Depp and his friend Patti Smith. That I was not expecting.



UPDATE: It appears that one of the songs in the movie is not actually on the soundtrack. The song in question is After All by Frankie Miller

    I thought the music backing was really moody and wonderful – so is this mostly Christopher Young? Some of the instrumental stuff reminded me a liitle of INXS – saxaphone and mouth organ and other instruments made it very atmospheric and memorable. Thanks!

    I watched the movie the other night. Loved the soundtrack. Never heard of Christopher Young. I could have sworn the music in the nightclub scene was Howlin’ Wolf. Gonna dig around and find out who this guy is. Thanks for the blog.
