The soundtrack for Season One of HBO's Westworld has been released. The 34-song compilation, Westworld: Season 1 (Music From the HBO Series), includes original music by composer Ramin Djawadi along with his covers of Radiohead, the Rolling Stones, the Cure, Amy Winehouse and others. The set includes previously released covers of Soundgarden, the Rolling Stones and the Cure, which appear on an EP featuring selections from the series. A reworking of Radiohead's "No Surprises" hails from the EP as well and the new soundtrack also features Djawadi's interpretations of "Motion Picture Soundtrack," "Fake Plastic Trees" and "Exit Music (For a Film)." Other covers include Nine Inch Nails' "Something I Can Never Have," Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" and the Animals' "House of the Rising Sun".

Remember when artificial intelligence was supposed to be a good thing? When we thought we would, in our old age, each be tended to by a personalised robotic nurse? When we thought that all our jobs would be made obsolete, allowing us to live lives of unbroken leisure? That glorious future might still be on the horizon, but for now AI is rubbish. We live in a world where stupid robots and gormless algorithms are incompetently conspiring to make our lives much more difficult than they need to be.
