Description

SNATCH is an infectious mixed bag of a soundtrack that expertly provides the mood for Guy Ritchie's roller-coaster ride of a movie about London's gangster underworld. Like his American counterpart Quentin Tarantino, Ritchie has an eclectic ear for music that comes up with a mix of well-known tracks by the Specials (the ska classic "Ghost Town") and Oasis (the clattering instrumental "F**kin' in the Bushes"), and lesser known rock songs and cutting-edge dance music.

Highlights include the baroque psychedelia of the Stranglers ("Golden Brown"), the spot-on reggae of 10CC ("Dreadlock Holiday") and the shuffling New Orleans R&B of Huey "Piano" Smith & The Clowns ("Don't You Just Know It"). Ritchie even includes new spouse Madonna ("Lucky Star") and an underground UK club hit by her French electronica collaborator Mirwais ("Disco Science"). British DJs also get their due, whether it's a darkly hypnotic chill-out track by Massive Attack ("Angel") or the psycho-tropic sexual instructional tape of The Herbaliser ("Sensual Woman"). Elsewhere, Maceo & The Macks, with "Cross the Tracks (We Better Go Back)" and Bobby Byrd, with "Hot Pants (I'm Coming, Coming, I'm Coming)" considerably ratchet up the funk quotient.

What the critics say...

Entertainment Weekly (1/19/01, p.86) - "...Plays like a cool mix tape of left-field delights compiled by a music-savvy buddy..." - Rating: B+
Melody Maker (9/19/00, p.50) - 4.5 stars out of 5 - "...Splutteringly brilliant modern classics, spanking gorgeous old-skool classics...and general soundtrack-heaven..."
