The ‘Westworld’ Soundtrack Is A-Maze-Ing

Are you a fan of mazes? Will you be visiting a maze anytime soon? Are you in a maze right now? Are you dead set on finding the center of the maze? Have you lost track of how much time you’ve spent in the maze? Are you wearing a black hat right now? And would you like to hear some cool tunes? Then WaterTower Music has a collection of jams for you. As Pitchfork reported, the Westworld Season 1 soundtrack has hit the shelves. The five-track Westworld EP that dropped back in October went and blossomed into a 34-song album, and you better believe the full-length soundtrack is nothing short of excellent.

Now, I haven’t actually tested this out, but I can only imagine how awesome it would be to pump this soundtrack into your headphones while shopping at IKEA. You can pretend like you are a robot who is on a quest to find the center of the labyrinthian store. Naturally, the IKEA cafeteria is the center of the maze. And yes, eating meatballs is achieving consciousness. And yes, every person who leaves their shopping cart in the middle of the walkway while they thumb through a pile of area rugs is a total Logan. Ugh, classic Logan move.

The Westworld OST features Ramin Djawadi’s instrumental covers of beloved records like “House of the Rising Sun,” “Exit Music (For a Film),” and “Back to Black,” plus a bunch of original songs featured throughout the sci-fi/western series. You can find the soundtrack over on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon now.

Here is a gift idea for the black hat-wearing Westworld aficionado in your life: give ‘em this album, a maze puzzle book, and a nice pen. And no, a pencil will not do. The Man in Black likes to live on the edge, and using an erasable writing implement is the opposite of the edge.
