While there may be a lot to quibble with when it comes to Quentin Tarantino‘s slavery/vengeance pic “Django Unchained” (it split The Playlist so much we gave it three reviews), once thing almost everyone can agree on is that the soundtrack is aces. Only Tarantino would have the presence of mind to put Ennio Morricone and Rick Ross in the same movie, but believe it or not, it works (and in fact, it’s one of Best Soundtracks Of 2012). So forget trying to track down the songs all over the place.
The whole shebang has dropped online for your listening pleasure, with the full 23-song tracklist ready for your ears, featuring all the selections from the various films that Tarantino drew inspiration from, new tunes by John Legend and Anthony Hamilton, dialogue clips, and much more. It’s a nicely flavored stew of songs, well worth the time. After that you can spend 12 minutes watching B-roll footage of the shooting of the picture, but be warned, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, spoilers abound, so you might want to save it until later.
