Hedwig And The Angry Inch (Soundtrack)
Released: Jul 2001
Label: Rhino Atlantic
If you're already a fan, chances are the novelty of Hedwig -- a transsexual rock star from East Germany who ended up with an "angry inch" and a mean string of broken hearts after a botched sex-change operation -- has worn off. (If you've yet to see it, my God! Get thee to a Netflix queue, posthaste!) But even if, like us, you've seen the movie more times than you've seen your mother, the soundtrack still stands the test of time: rock-star cynicism meets high camp, glam metaphors and gut-twisting pathos to the tune of tremendous, blistering rock. A true classic.
