Review by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck
4 stars out of 4

The cult classic film "Pulp Fiction" had a soundtrack that was as big as the movie itself. As Quinton Tarantino suggest in his interview on disc two, "The opening track "Miserlou" (which isn't the original by Dick Dale) says right up front that you are watching a big picture, something that will get your attention." That is putting it mildly to say least. With all of the graphic blood and guts, incessant foul language, and overall provocative sexiness, this is surely not a movie or a soundtrack for people under the age of 18. There are excerpts from the movie included sandwiched in between the songs. Its wonderful music, but you must beware that there is explicit language used, so if you have children consider yourself forewarned. Tarantino hardly comes up for air in the interview, he talks very quickly but he keeps it interesting, when it is all over though you have had your fill, even though music is the topic of conversation. I found it interesting how he explained his creative process. He puts on some music before he creates a film to inspire himself and think of characters.

The way the soundtrack plays out, it uses surf-instrumental and pop in a very clever way to fit each scene. Even if you have not seen the movie, I know you will love this soundtrack. Personally, I thought that the movie was horrible. I do remember the scene at "Jack Rabbit Slim's," I thought that it was cool with the Ed Sullivan look alike as the MC. Regardless of my opinion on the film, John Travolta and Samuel Jackson were brilliant badass scum's.

The music won me over, no contest. Being a big surf music fan helped for this to fall into my good graces. This is all classic rock 'n' roll that will bring you for a walk down memory lane. An additional four tracks added to this set brings it back in all its glory to the original uncut form.
