Overview

As with Edgar Wright's other movies, the apocalyptic pub crawl World's End has a witty, fitting soundtrack. The film follows a group of friends as they try to top an epic night out they had 20 years before, and the bulk of these songs recapture the very best of Brit-pop, indie, and pop that the late '80s and early '90s had to offer. Along with stone-cold indie classics like Suede's "So Young," Pulp's "Do You Remember the First Time?," the Sundays' "Here's Where the Story Ends," Inspiral Carpets' "So This Is How It Feels," and Teenage Fanclub's "What You Do to Me," the set also digs deeper into the era with slightly lesser-known cuts such as the Housemartins' "Happy Hour" and the Beautiful South's "Old Red Eyes Is Back." A good chunk of World's End's music exists in the intersection between indie and dance that led to trends like baggy back in the day, and the party-hard sounds of Primal Scream's "Loaded," the Soup Dragons' "I'm Free," and the Happy Mondays' "Step On" make the perfect contrast to the dire situations in which the film's characters find themselves. World's End isn't just more entertaining than your average soundtrack, it's also a lot more fun than most compilations of '90s music, making it a worthwhile listen for those who haven't seen the movie but love the sounds of that time.
