The first season of HBO's Westworld had a lot of standout qualities, but one of the coolest style tricks it regularly used was placing unexpected versions of pop songs in key scenes - such as an orchestral version of "Paint it Black" during a shootout, or the player piano plinking out "Black Hole Sun" as Maeve prepared to start her day at the saloon. The new trailer suggests we can expect even more of this in season two.

Some of us on staff - the ones with correct opinions - love Ramin Djawadi's arrangements for Westworld. Others - hereafter known as the wrong ones - do not. Here's what I know: There are only five tracks on the just-released Westworld soundtrack, and I will be listening to them on repeat for days.
