Since its release in 1998, The Boys has firmly established itself as one of the great Australian movies of recent times. This soundtrack album (originally released on the Wild Sound label) consists of more than just the music that's heard in the film. It's an album that draws upon all the material the group composed for the soundtrack.

Nominated for Best Soundtrack Album, ARIA Awards and Australian Guild of Screen Composers Awards.

"Haunting stuff...Highly recommended" (4 stars)
