Only Lovers Left Alive
As an auteur with impeccable music taste, the laconic director Jim Jarmusch is no stranger to providing his films with memorable scores and moments. For his post-modern tale of vampires trying to find purpose in their immortal lives, he employs his own group, SQÜRL, to provide the brooding score for dead lovers Adam and Eve (played by Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton) to explore what is a romantic paean to the bohemian artistic underground. Providing the doom-fuzzy riffs of Adam's band in the movie, Jarmusch crafts his epic score primarily with Dutch composer Jozef van Wissem, who in turn churns out atmospheric stoner riffs, gliding minimal orchestral strokes, and bewitching vocal chants. The likes of Zola Jesus and Madeline Follin from Cults make appearances, with the latter contributing to a wonderfully hazy and skuzzy version of Wanda Jackson's "Tunnel of Love," which encapsulates the film's "hipsters through the ages" aesthetic to a T. ~ Aneet Nijjar

I'm sure the album is great, but BN doesn't actually have it and cancelled my order, in spite of my request that it remain open. (Unlike some reviewers I did have access to a confirmation button, and was able to request the order stay open. It was closed anyway.)
Please be advised. This is not a review of the product. I would really like to purchase this album but B&N has not shipped and has indicated that my order will be cancelled if I do not click the Ï still want it" box that doesn't exist... Like previous reviewers I have to wonder about B&N practices.
**Please be advised, this is not reviewing the actual product. The soundtrack itself is fantastic. This rating is based on the actual ordering process for the product on the B&N website.** I tried to order it a month ago. Shipping was set for about 3 weeks after ordering. I received an email that they could not ship at that date and it would be delayed. In order to keep my order I had to go and confirm that I still wanted it by following a link provided by B&N. I went to the link and there was nowhere to do this, so my order was cancelled. Based on previous reviewers I am assuming it is not in stock any longer. Please update your inventory B&N. I was really excited to find this, I wish their inventory actually backed up what they have advertised.
Similar to previews reviewer, I also ordered this album almost a month ago but yet to receive it. When the order was received, I was given April 15th as the ship date. Later, B&N apologies for the delay and sets May 6th as the new ship date. I don't understand B&N's inventory management and order processing system.
I ordred this LP one month ago. No shipping until now. I just cancel this order. Totally awful.
