There are a lot of reasons HBO’s Westworld is awesome, but the soundtrack is a very big one. Now you can jam those old-timey cover tunes all day long.
Ramin Djawadi has been putting together some killer arrangements for the series, featuring covers of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It, Black,” Radiohead’s “No Surprises” and the Cure’s “A Forest.” They’re fantastic and give the show a modern, but haunting, vibe that is truly unique to this series.
Now HBO has realized people want to own these songs, so they’ve dropped a five-song soundtrack. It’s great, and is almost certainly the best thing you can buy for $4.99 today. Go ahead, you deserve it.
