I knew before I picked up this soundtrack that I was getting the classic Title Music for my money – an epic of the cinematic big-beat variety, and sheer heaven for tasteful crate diggers and samplers the world over. I was delighted to discover that there were more goodies to unpack besides. From the Wiki:
