Dredd

I have spoken of the 2012 movie Dredd before, about how I thought it captured the feel and texture of the Judge Dredd universe quite well.  My opinion on the film does need to be tempered by my lack of experience with the source material, but I've enough to realize that it done good.  Karl Urban in particular needs praise for his performance of the title character, particularly because he never takes off the iconic helmet during the film... when was the last time you saw a movie star do that?... and is still able to bring life to the role.  What I'm saying here is that if you like a good action film, or you're a fan of Judge Dredd, go watch it immediately.


However, that's not really why I'm here today.  Nope, today I'm here to expose y'all to the MUSIC from Dredd.  I never really noticed the music the times I've watched the film, but the soundtrack was pointed out to me by one of those "Everything Wrong" style yootoob viddys.  And brother, were they right to say that the music is great!
Now I can see how people may not like the industrial/krautrock/synth/whatever aesthetic of the music.  I can't define what genre it is, not really.  But then, I don't much care either: I just like the music.
A lot.
Enough that I've got the soundtrack lined up on Amazon for digital purchase, that's how much.
Okay everybody, enough music.  Go back to work now.
