Violence, verbosity and killer tunes are the three cornerstones of any Quentin Tarantino movie.

Whether you enjoy his films or not, his soundtracks are always essential listening.

Each one plays like a lovingly-compiled mixtape in the key of whichever genre he’s working in, be it neo-noir, blaxploitation, kung-fu, war or spaghetti western.

This mixtape is a tribute to acclaimed director and writer Quentin Tarantino’s fine musical taste.
