Our take

by Angus

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are amongst the most fun–natured and easygoing of the Marvel cinematic universe. Helmed by director James Gunn, they function as both rollicking sci–fi adventures as well as adroitly written comedies that just happen to be backed by red-hot collections of rock music.

If you’re in the market for a traditional film score, this 2 x LP set goes both ways. What makes the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtracks such an essential part of the film is that Gunn chooses the rock tunes prior to writing the script, and then writes scenes around them. We can’t name another film soundtrack in which the songs are so essential to the fabric of the film, with Gunn combining tracks from his musical idols with more obscure cuts that might’ve been hits on his regional rock radio stations as a kid.

Since many of our visitors are at the beginning of their vinyl voyage, we thought it'd be helpful to have a starter's compass.
