AllMusic Review by

This soundtrack to the edgy Tarantino-esque British film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels consists largely of vintage punk rock (the Stooges' "I Wanna Be Your Dog"), R&B (James Brown's "The Boss" and "The Payback"), and reggae (Junior Murvin's "Police and Thieves"), along with a few other oddities, such as Dusty Springfield's rendition of "Spooky," a song that was a hit for the Classics IV in the U.S. The songs are interspersed with obscenity-laced snippets of dialogue from the film that indicate its sarcastic, low-life nature. There's nothing wrong with the music, but minus the film the album is just another random collection of tracks, not cohering as do, say, the soundtracks to Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, Trainspotting, and The Full Monty (the films to which this one's been compared).
