So nice seeing Oneohtrix Point Never featured here! He’s been one of my favorite composers for a decade now and his work on the Good Time score is some of the best synth accompaniment to any movie since the original Blade Runner. In fact, the track “6th Floor” seems to explicitly reference the opening track on Vangelis’ score with its huge drum sounds.

Also, I know it’s not a popular view, but Good Time was the best film of 2017.
