“Suicide Squad: The Album” is a Terrific Showcase of Music & Film Co-Dependence

A+, A, A-, B+, B = Great | B-, C+, C, C-, D+ = Average | D, D-, F+, F, F- = Bad

The soundtrack to the highly anticipated movie “Suicide Squad” includes many high-profile artists such as Eminem, Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots, Panic! At The Disco, Skrillex, and much more. The album features 10 new songs recorded exclusively for the movie, which two, Heathens and Sucker For Pain, are already Top 40 Hits in the US.

SUCKER FOR PAIN: A-

Melding a peerless and versatile beat that brilliantly shadows Imagine Dragons’s and X Ambassador’s chorus and the four rapper’s verses, Sucker For Pain captures the feel of “Suicide Squad”‘s vicious, sultry tone.

This striking single separates itself from generic rap collaborations by capitalizing on each rapper’s strengths, notably Logic’s catchy and off-beat verse that steals the song. Wiz and Lil Wayne both fire back at each other, resulting in a mirrored sentiment that reverberates through the track. All of this is completed by an infectious and poignant chorus that Imagine Dragons boasts after each rap verse.

HEATHENS: A

The breakout rock act of 2016 Twenty One Pilots releases their first single since “Blurryface” debuted in 2015. Featuring a conflicting lyrical identity that blurs the line between sane and the insane, Heathens is a brash, space-pop infused rock hit that only Suicide Squad could inspire.
