    'Big 'Ol Scardy Pants' from Spring Breakers soundtrack is great<3, also Drive, Only God Forgives and Contagion soundtracks are perfect.

    ah thanks. the way it's always tagged it has (proud) like its a translation of the title. rippers need to step up their game. it's not like anyone tagged Drive with "Martinez ft Lovefoxx"

    @deathnaked, this song is not Cliff Martinez' one. This is 'You're my dream' by Proud.

    While Spring Breakers is lacking pretty much everything Only God Forgives is again an extremly superficial story told with incredibly scored powerful imagery, I guess Cliff balanced himself out this time

    Only God Forgives is my favorite movie of 2013 so far. The soundtrack is very impressive.

    À L'origine - I don't know how good the movie is, but the soundtrack is very good.

    How come people think Only God Forgives is so bad? Are they too accustomed to the Hollywood standard mix or are they just scared off by the vibrating intensity of this film?

    Only God Forgives is by far the best score since Drive. Cliff Martinez did it again.
