While most of the best songs featured in John Cusack's black comedy Grosse Pointe Blank were on the original soundtrack album, Grosse Pointe Blank -- More Music from the Film is nearly as enjoyable as the first collection. With cuts from the Specials ("A Message to You Rudy"), Echo & the Bunnymen ("The Killing Moon"), Tones on Tail ("Go!"), Siouxsie & the Banshees ("Cities in Dust"), the Pogues ("Lorca's Novena"), and Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel ("White Lines [Don't Do It]"), it effortlessly captures the spirit and sound of '80s collegiate rock, as well as the movie itself. It's a thoroughly entertaining album.
