I’ve figured out why it is only now, years after seeing the off-Broadway show and subsequent film, that I am convinced the “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” soundtrack is a perfect fucking album. It’s because the god-awful story has all but faded from memory and I can just enjoy these songs as songs. Go download a few of them (especially Midnight Radio, Wicked Little Town [Gnosis version] and Tear Me Down) and you’ll see what I mean.
