Halt and Catch Fire was a show that completely embraced change, filled with vibrant and fully realized characters who gave themselves up to the fires of creation and progress and reinvention… -Joshua Rivera, GQ
We aren’t the only ones who did not want “Halt And Catch Fire” to end! The AMC series, which aired the finale a week ago, features score by Paul Haslinger, who knows a thing or two about music of the PC era (he is a former member of pioneering electronic music band Tangerine Dream). In an interview with Consequence of Sound’s Michael Roffman, who calls the score “exceptional”, Paul revealed that his work on the series began almost exactly 30 years after his stint with the band. “This album is the closest to an actual release of electronic music that I’ve come to since leaving TD in 1990. I’ve had a lot of fun making it, hope you enjoy it!”
Music played a significant role throughout the series, and period-correct songs placed throughout, moving from the ’80s to the ’90s (thanks to genius Music Supervisor Thomas Golubiç) were some of the highlights. In fact, the scene featuring Cameron and Joe dancing to the Pixies’ “Velouria” (episode 309) was called one of the “10 Best Musical TV Moments of 2016” by Vulture.

The outrageous comedy is now available on iTunes Movies, so consider your FOMO conquered! Check out our previous update about the various artists soundtrack.
The compilation has just ten songs, but all of them play an integral part in pushing the movie’s stalker narrative forward. After all, how can you cover millennial angst on screen without a little dance pop? The soundtrack is an eclectic mix of genres that range from the aforementioned dance pop to new wave and even all the way to 70’s soul. Also, if you’ve seen the film, you know just how important K-Ci & Jojo’s ‘90s ballad “All My Life” is to the tone of the film. – Jordan Ruimy, The Playlist
