Since watching the film Only Lovers Left Alive I bought the soundtrack, which complements the film. Film and music generate a dark mood and atmosphere. The music is psychedelic/Gothic and creates a unique and distinctive sound.

Only Lovers Left Alive is a must see for those who are seeking an intelligent and thought provoking Gothic tale and mood piece. It’s not a traditional vampire story that relies on blood-sucking horror and violence to sustain an audience. The mood, tone and music create a film that relies more on atmosphere rather than drama. It’s a thematically complex piece as well as including traditional Gothic themes, such as the romantic outsider. It also interweaves modern concerns, such as urban decay and climate change. I gave this film a five out of five. Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston’s performances were impressive.
