Overview

The original soundtrack to Stephen Norrington's The Last Minute, a dark comedy about a young, washed-up British actor wrapped up in London's underworld, seems inspired by the soundtracks to recent, like-minded British films, most notably Trainspotting and Snatch. Sleek electronica like Leftfield's "Song of Life" and Spacer's "The Beamer" dominates the album, giving it a cool but slightly dated late-'90s patina. Indeed, the film was shot in 2000, premiered at the 2001 Cannes Festival, and ended up as a straight-to-video release in the U.S. in 2003, so it's possible to see the soundtrack as sort of a time capsule of that era in electronic music. Despite the lengthy buildup to its release, the album still includes its fair share of good-to-great tracks, including El-P's "Deep Space 9MM," Amon Tobin's tensely atmospheric title track, and a pair of cuts from Aphex Twin, "Disc 2 Track 3" and "On." Songs by Luke Vibert, Bogdan Raczynski, Supreme Beings of Leisure, and Radio Zumbido round out the album, adding to its worthwhile but slightly anticlimactic feel.
