This novel expedition encapsulates the life and times of the Romantic poets, as never captured before, revealing the transcendental woes – the forbidden loves and vehement hates and a soundtrack that illuminates the fervent minutiae of even the shortest of existences. Opening with Jay Z & Rihanna’s eclectic mashup of Bach’s Toccata in Fugue lights sets an immediate atmosphere and creates a lasting parallelism between the contemporary composers of the time and the modern pop idols of today which is a constant theme in the whole of the soundtrack. It is difficult to surpass the astounding magnificence of Soulja Boy, an intro into the rock operatic score mixed by the M Night Shyamalan of modern movie composers, and brilliant additions by notable experimental musicians like Igorrr and further works from Garbage, and glam rock idol David Bowie leaving the listener with a taste of the pièce de résistance that is the Baz Luhrmann’s “Romantics” — Editors’ Note
