Lakeshore Records release the various artists soundtrack for The Infiltrator. Based on a true story, federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu and Kathy Ertz, a rookie agent posing as his fiancé, Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino. Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of more than 100 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world...
The soundtrack to The Infiltrator contains 12 various artists songs (49 min, 59 sec) from such iconic artist as The Who, Rush, the Violent Femmes and Leonard Cohen. The music does a good job of encapsulating the time period of the movie and anyone who lived through the '80s will love the opportunity to grab a little slice of nostalgia.
If you've seen the movie then you know what to expect here, it all comes down to whether this musical period is something you're a fan of and even more importantly if you enjoy the songs included. While I lived through the '80s none of the tracks here were already in my music library. It was interesting to hear them after all these years, but it's doubtful I'll listen to this album again in the future.
