    We were somewhere around Barstow, when the drugs began to take hold...

    Like a lightening bolt, this soundtrack, like the film, launches you into an all-out world of madness. I would have to say, that like the film itself, which is my Personal Favorite film; this is my Personal Favorite soundtrack. For many years, since I was a kid, Soundtracks have been very important, especially since I wanted to make films when I was just a kid. Music is essential when it comes to film, just as much as the acting, direction, cinematography, sound, etc...Martin Scorsese and Quintin Tarantino are usually leading the fore-front when it comes to music and film, especially since the music takes on a story of its own. With this soundtrack, which is beautifully constructed, you get sort of a great review of the film and even Thompson's novel. Like Tarantino's soundtracks, this little fella has the same pattern with an assortment of wonderful blazing dialogue that gives you flashbacks of the wild times throughout the film with Duke (Depp) and Dr. Gonzo (Del Toro). Also similar to another great, critically acclaimed, cult status soundtrack "Pulp Fiction;" this album begins with dialogue, then music of the scene follows, sometimes the two are synced together. Now for the music, which in my mind has an excellent selection of tracks that suits the film perfectly, from 60s psychedelic popular music (Big Brother, Jefferson Airplane, Buffalo Springfield), to folk (Dylan), to even Pop-Standards (Perry Como, Debbie Reynolds?)...there is even some beautifully composed music as well which ignites the heavily psychedelic indulgent sequences which is composed by Hotei Tomoyasu. I picked this up years ago and it is one of those rare soundtracks that will stay with you and the tracks make you want to keep listening to the album over and over. This is definitely a must-have for any Gonzo nut, such as myself. So Turn On, Tune In, and Hold On...
