Baby Driver Vinyl Soundtrack Review

A look at the Vinyl Soundtrack for Baby Driver.

“Was He Slow?”

If you drifted into theaters, you probably noticed the soundtrack to Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver was pretty jam-packed. Filled with selections from the director’s own music collection, it’s safe to say that the soundtrack is a winner and will be an instant edition to your own series of tunes.

It’s a great mix of modern and classic, with gems like Queen, The Beach Boys, and The Commodores. For those of you who have seen the film, you also get Baby’s own mix of “Was He Slow?”. The only thing better would be an extended edition with other tracks of Baby’s own design.

Fitting along with the theme of the music in the film, the soundtrack comes in a vinyl format that is a must for any music lover. It looks slick and plays like a charm.

Edgar also gives you a glimpse into the origins of both the film and the music, giving you a real personalized feel. What’s important to know is that the music you hear in the movie is a central character. Each melody is hard hitting, pulling you into the scene and building itself into the heart of Baby’s struggles, triumphs, and silly moments. It’s the perfect reason for jumping into your car and going on a road trip.
