In 1996, a cult film entitled "TRAINSPOTTING" was shown here in MANILA. I was very much interested to see the film on the big screen because of the reviews I read before it was shown here in MANILA. "TRAINSPOTTING" was indeed a deep film about life on Heroin Addiction. It stars EWAN McGREGOR (young Obi-Wan Kenobi on STAR WARS episode I,II,II) as Mark Renton. The film was based on an Irvine Welsh's novel which depicted on the life of Mark Renton as a drug-dependent person who struggles through life. It was directed by Danny Boyle. A great cult film indeed with a great soundtrack!!!
Listening to the music on the film made me bought the ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE soundtrack which includes music from NEW ORDER, IGGY POP, PRIMAL SCREAM, UNDERWORLD,etc. Definitely a great score for music enthusiast like me who loves this kind of music. Then a follow-up SOUNDTRACK was released due to the success of the first one. WOW!! Indeed another great collection of tunes from DAVID BOWIE, JOY DIVISION, HEAVEN 17,etc so I have to buy it. This second offering includes cuts which weren't included on the first one and also some songs that didn't appear on the final film, but were included at earlier stages or were used as inspiration by the filmmakers.

Definitely two great CDs for your collection!!! ANG GALING!!!
