Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ganda Suthivarakom
Like the exquisitely attractive but overwhelmingly repulsive antihero at the center of the film, the AMERICAN PSYCHO soundtrack reflects our love/hate relationship with that era of excess: the '80s. The songs on AMERICAN PSYCHO can be separated into three '80s-centric groups. There are heavy reinterpretations of the era's classics, such as Dope's goth-industrial take on Dead or Alive's Hi-NRG classic "You Spin Me Round Like a Record"; coked-out new-wave tracks, like Information Society's "What's on Your Mind Pure Energy Mix"; and post-millennial cuts from '80s heroes like the Cure, who contribute the spacious bleaktronica cut "Something in the Air."

Barnes & Noble - Ganda Suthivarakom
Like the exquisitely attractive but overwhelmingly repulsive antihero at the center of the film, the AMERICAN PSYCHO soundtrack reflects our love/hate relationship with that era of excess: the '80s. The songs on AMERICAN PSYCHO can be separated into three '80s-centric groups. There are heavy reinterpretations of the era's classics, such as Dope's goth-industrial take on Dead or Alive's Hi-NRG classic "You Spin Me Round Like a Record"; coked-out new-wave tracks, like Information Society's "What's on Your Mind Pure Energy Mix"; and post-millennial cuts from '80s heroes like the Cure, who contribute the spacious bleaktronica cut "Something in the Air." In their new context, these songs reveal the decade's dark paranoia beneath its volume and gloss. A couple of the songs sound a little out of place on this soundtrack. The Tom Tom Club's candy-pop track "Who Feelin' It Philip's Psycho Mix" feels decidedly un-psychotic, and Racket's cover of Eric B. & Rakim's hip-hop classic "Paid in Full" sounds thin next to the brilliant original, which is already on the soundtrack. Despite a slight pause in the album's momentum, AMERICAN PSYCHO is still an ominous and fun little trip down memory lane.
