Pulp Fiction

Artist: Various Artists
Format: CD
Rating: 7/10

By 1994, having become bored with most of indie rock I had been listening to as a college student, I had immersed myself into surf rock. I remember sitting in the theater watching Pulp Fiction on opening weekend and being thrilled by all the surf instros I recognized. Really there are only about 4 surf tracks here but it sure felt like more. Even so, this soundtrack was largely responsible for the great garage/surf boom of the 90's (and the subsequent surf crash of '97). Although the rest of the record is not really my cup of pizza, there is plenty of dialogue interspersed to make this a good listen from beginning to end.
