5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best!!!
I HAD to give this CD 5 stars since it is one of the VERY FEW cd's I've bought over the past decade where I like every song (one of four actually, the others being AC/DC - Live, Weird Al - Bad Hair Day and Gravity Kills self titled album). I bought it when it first came out and still listen to it today. The songs blend well together and carry the emotion of The Crow legacy with them. I rate this album the best in the series.

1-0 out of 5 stars I didn't like it
It's not great music to dance to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this!!!
I'm probably one of only a handful of people who would say this (then again it might just be me and my brother), but in my opinion, this is the best of the three Crow movies/soundtracks.I'm currently listening to the cd and it's just wonderful.I've had the cd since the movie came out, and the longer I have it, the more I enjoy it.Although, I think the two rap songs kind of ruin the mood a little bit.My favorites include the first five tracks (I could just sit here and listen to Bush's "In A Lonely Place" until my batteries die), NY Loose's "Spit', Korn's "Sean Olson", and Iggy Pop's "I Wanna Be Your Dog".All in all, this is a great cd and I'm glad I bought it. ...

Editorial Review

This soundtrack to City of Angels has a mighty tall order to fill. The film is a remake of Wim Wenders' Wings of Desire, and the German director is known for his effective use of music. But where Wenders can call on his friends such as R.E.M. and Elvis Costello to contribute songs, City of Angels feels more like a marketing device. No less than half the selections are by Warner Bros. artists, including some new music by Alanis Morissette, her first since Jagged Little Pill. That song, "Uninvited," is the album's highlight, a restrained modal ballad in the mode of Zeppelin's "Kashmir." The rest alternates between other female stars such as Paula Cole and Sarah McLachlan and bluesy selections from Hendrix, John Lee Hooker, and Eric Clapton. --Steven Mirkin ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Alanis Morissette Rocks!
Most of the songs are pretty good and worth getting, but Alanis Morisette's "Uninvited" is an excellent song. It is one of her best songs and is by far the best on the album. I recommend buying the album just for her song.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favourites
This is a great compilation. So much variety as you would typically expect of a good OST but at the same time each song a class of its own. Bends more towards light rock, pop, alternative. Very well done.

5-0 out of 5 stars Eclectic and heavenly
You've got everything here from Hendrix blues on "Redhouse" to Sarah McLachlan's "Angel."This is an inspiring soundtrack that keeps you listening and interesting.I'd actually rate this higher than the movie. ... Read more

Editorial Review

While The Professional marked the American breakthrough of populist French director Luc Besson (and his long-time composer, Eric Serra), the ambitious, futuristic sci-fi adventure The Fifth Element proved to be Besson's stateside sophomore jinx at the box office.Still, Serra's score shouldn't be overlooked. Easily the composer's most digitally daring studio concoction, The Fifth Element offers up a brave stew of synth beats, orchestral flourishes, and ethnic influences ranging from Middle Eastern modalities to Italian operatic arias. --Jerry McCulley ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Khaled's famous Taxi Chase scene is not included here!?
For all of those who suffered the hardships of looking for that song, I finally discovered that it's called "Alech Taadi", Arabic meaning: "Why run away?", which fits the taxi chase scene perfectly. This song belongs to a world-famous Rai artist known as Khaled. It's part of his "N'ssi N'ssi" album (Arabic meaning: Forget! Forget!). I thought that this song (like most of you) would be included in this Serra's album. Khaled's famous 5th Element Taxi Chase Scene is available at Amazaon.com. I rate Khaled's N'ssi N'ssi album at 5, but this Serra's collection at 2.5 for failing to include Khaled's track, Alech Taadi.

Best regards,

Editorial Review

The first of two Trainspotting discs is a prime example of the contemporary rock soundtrack, functioning as a useful keepsake of the 1996 British film smash and as a cohesive, eclectic listen in its own right. Iggy Pop's booming, Bowie-produced 1977 anthem "Lust for Life" sets the boisterously ambivalent mood for a transatlantic, trans-generational cross-section of alt-rock. New Order's seminal 1982 dance hit "Temptation" and Lou Reed's hauntingly bittersweet 1972 tune "Perfect Day" shares space with tracks by such esteemed mid-1990s Brit-popsters as Blur (whose frontman Damon Albarn also contributes a solo number), Pulp, Elastica, and Sleeper. Elsewhere, the album dips into dance rhythms (Underworld, Bedrock featuring KYO) and ambient grooves (Brian Eno Leftfield, and Primal Scream's ten-and-a-half-minute title song) without breaking the spell. --Scott Schinder ...

5-0 out of 5 stars a great soundtrack to an equally great movie....
i think that trainspotting wouldn't be one of the best films of the 90s without the excelent music that served as background to the story of mark renton and co.. the selection of tracks is excelent all the way thru..from iggy pop's lust for life to underworld's born slippy, this an amazing musical journey, that mixes old and for that time, new songs from some great bands...this is a really electic soundtrack, were techno, pop and rock mix to give you some aural pleasure.. so listen to this soundtrack, see the film and read the book..or is it the other way around? it doesn't matter.. this is good..
thanks for reading... ps: there's also a second volume of the soundtrack that's also great...

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than the movie...?
When I started listening to this, it had been a year or so since I had seen the movie (which I liked), and I couldn't remember which scenes correponded to which tracks. Therefore I enjoyed it as a completley seperate work of art. When I re-watched the movie recently, I was almost dissapointed; the music actually seemed weakened in the context of the scenes. Don't get me wrong, Trainspotting is excellent, but the soundtrack stands indepedently and possibly even above it as a pop-culture watermark.

It's been observed that there's a lot of variance in the music, but I do think it's held together by a certain theme, a depiction of a way of life - squalor (Mile End, 2:1), desperatley sincere attempts to find some happiness or amusement (Lust For Life, Atomic, For What You Dream Of), an underlying and understandable sense of desperation (Sing and Perfect Day, the only songs which I thought perfectly matched their respective scenes in the movie), made bearable by the occasional glimpse of real, innocent sweetness (Temptation).

Taken seperatley, the songs are again very strong; there are great commerical hits like 'Temptation' and 'Born Slippy,' and more obscure but excellent tracks like 'Sing,' which I don't think can be found on any other album, but which I think is one of Blur's best songs, ever. The instrumental tracks are also good, particularly 'Trainspotting' itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have for any lover of music.
I finally bought this CD after putting it off for years. I mainly bought it for Underworld, but this whole CD is cool. I'm not into Iggy or Lou, but I don't skip any tracks on this CD. This came out in 1996, but sounds so fresh and relevant to today's culture. My least favorite track is, Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," and my absolute favorite is, Blur's "Sing," which barely beat Primal Scream's "Trainspotting." The track that A track that surprised me is Pulp's hilarious "Mile End." Brian Eno is always good, and "Deep Blue Day" will give Eno more record sales. Blur's lead singer has the last track called, "Closet Romantic," which is a more of an electronic song. If you like emotionally charged tunes then go get this album. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The soundtrack to Road Trip veers away from the contemporary practice of hiring third-string alternative bands to cover classic rock tunes. That fact alone gives this entertaining collection a leg up on its filler-happy brethren. Road Trip--a cross-country, hormone-heavy romp featuring Canada's favorite headcase, Tom Green--boasts cuts from the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Kid Rock (featuring Uncle Kracker), Buckcherry, and even Minnie Riperton. The underrated "Voodoo Lady" by Ween gets a second chance, as do Run DMC's "It's Tricky" and Twisted Sister's "I Wanna Rock," which sounds awfully quaint several years after frontman Dee Snider's ugly mug scared a nation. The shifting gears--from rock to rap to pop to soul--make this vehicle work as both a film soundtrack and a great disc for a road trip of your own. --Jason Josephes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything a score should be
Serra is majestic. Hands down great soundtrack. With a perfect mix of instruments, chorus, and techno sound, "The Messenger" score is perfect. The tracks are evenly cut, and the chorus pieces are great. The best track hands down is "The Messenger of God" which combines perfect harp and symphony instrumentation. The music is so noteworthy that it takes away the whole "find the dauphin" scene. Truly excellent by far, and a stand alone score. If it even wasn't a score, I'd buy it.

4-0 out of 5 stars I hate most of Serra's music, but this score shines brightly
It fits the movie perfectly!The movie was great and the score only made it greater!Eric Serra combines awesome choir, orchestra, and synths to charge this wonderful soundtrack."Angelus In Medio Ignis" shines as one of the best film score pieces I have ever heard in terms of not only quality and power but in terms of fitting the movie scene (in this case, when Joan is being burned).This movie and score made an impression on me that no film or score have done in a long time!Bravo, Mr. Serra!

Editorial Review

Film scorer Hans Zimmer, who helped pioneer the seamless technological merging of electronic and acoustic instruments in film scoring, has long had an interest in musical fusion. But in scoring director John Woo's action-sopped Tom Cruise star vehicle, Zimmer has concocted a wildly uneven stew of electronica, flamenco, rock, medieval, and world music that's about as subtle as Cruise's career ambitions. There are moments of surprising tranquility (Zimmer's duet with Heitor Periera on the Spanish-guitar-driven "Nyah") amid the pulsing beats and blaring samples, and even a few passages reminiscent of his other summer 2000 blockbuster, Gladiator. But as a musical stew, this one could use another dollop of simple meat and potatoes; it's certainly a long way from The Lion King, The Thin Red Line, As Good As It Gets, or any of his other best scores. --Jerry McCulley ...

5-0 out of 5 stars best score ever
This is one of those cd's that you never seem to forget. this is my favourite score ever. it has a chilling sence of emotion and gives me goosebumps every time i hear it. close youre eye's and listen to mano a mano. it has an amazing sence of emotoin. anyone who is a fan of the movie or just likes scores should go and buy this masterpeice right now. it's that good!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Different, fresh, and exciting Zimmer...
For starters: I wrote a review for this score (along with numerous others) here on Amazon.com about 3 years ago, and if you look carefully, it's like #25 here... As I laugh (or cry) at my naivete (and poor, poor writing skills), I am also bewildered at how I actually gave this score 2 stars. My guess is I never went in with an open mind and gave it a chance.

This is a hugely entergetic score that offers a bit of everything and is probably one of Zimmer's best albums of the 90's. I despised the film when I first saw it (and haven't since), but nonetheless this is a great listening experience. It contains explosive synthesized action tracks like "Hijack", wonderful Hispanic flavored beats and guitar work in "Zap Mama" and "Seville", awe-inspiring choral work as heard in "Bare Island" (the first half of this track is probably one of the best pieces of music Zimmer has ever written), and some completely entrancing music heard in the likes of "Injection", which absolutely soars. In short, a totally diverse musical selection that sounds inspired and exciting.

These past few years haven't been very kind to Zimmer, and, now that I think of it, he hasn't really written this good 'a score since... Well, OK, Black Hawk Down, I suppose, but that's it (and even so, it didn't make for quite the successful album transition). Anyway, if you want some genuinely tasty Zimmer funk, dig in!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Score..
I was amazed when i saw the movie..but i was shocked when i heared these soundtraks!!the movie is so great..& hans zimmer also is a great composer that can touch our feelings with his scores...i like him so much!!

Editorial Review

The soundtrack for a film with no music? Yes, it's true. Josh's Blair WitchMix takes the high concept of "music inspired by the film" to new extremes: this isthe mix tape found in Josh's car on the fateful night the "documentary" was filmed.Whatever the case, Josh's is filled with the doom-and-gloom sounds of vintagegoth and industrial tracks and the occasional "scared silly" movie sound bites. It's astrong compilation with classic tunes byLydia Lunch,P.I.L.,Bauhaus,the Creatures,Front Line Assembly, and others. The included enhanced CDvideo snippet contains footage not found in the actual film. Ironic: one thing that makesThe Blair Witch Project so believable is the fact that it lacks the typicalclichéd horror-movie sound effects. Luckily, this "soundtrack" is far fromclichéd and every bit as creative as its movie counterpart. The only thing creepierwould be if Josh had been listening to a tape of smooth jazz.... --Jason Verlinde ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Not a Soundtrack, but a Companion Piece
A Soundtrack to a movie with no music?No, this is not some shallow attempt to cash in on a successful film (surprisingly), but rather a very good goth-industrial compilation disc.In the context of the film, one of the doomed kids put together a mix tape to put them in the mood as they headed out to the woods to make their ill-fated documentary.This CD is that mix, and it couples with the movie and the website (blairwitch.com) very nicely to create a true multimedia experience.Even if you haven't seen the movie, the CD stands on its own as a great goth- industrial sampler if you want to know more about that kind of music.Also, the film's haunting closing credit music is included.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent CD!
I had never heard of any of the artists on this CD, but I'd listened to a few songs before on the movie's webpage. I bought the CD on a whim, and soon began to listen to it at least twice a day. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite. Lydia Lunch's haunting voice and screeching saxophone (maybe?) starts the CD in a strangely beautiful way. The Order of Death is also one of my favorites--it has energy and excellent instruments and gets your adrenaline going, then the CD slows down for Skinny Puppy's sad song full of strange sound effects. Then the beautiful acoustics of Bauhaus reminds us of prophecies long ago and ends rather suddenly after the phrase "The Sky Will Open!", leaving us with a void filled by The Creatures. The strange ungendered voice and minor chords of the guitar put me in the mind of Nine Inch Nails, and the song is creepy as well as wonderful. Then Laibach suddenly picks up the pace with the operatic tone combined with scratchy prophecies about the power of God. The Afghan Whig's sad, slow melody comes next with a warning about the people you think you know and a yearning for love in his voice. Front Line Assembly fills the air with weird sounds of people talking and laughing while forcing out grated phrases about abuse and fear. Then, the climax of the whole CD is "Haunted" by Type O Negative, which begins slowly and beautifully, then becomes minor and dark, then has a man talking about his spirit lover and all the poetry she brings out in him, then goes on again to the dark, deep voice and minor chords about hating the morning and ends somewhat slow with the humming. Very, very inspiring. "She's Unreal" is somewhat repetative but neatly picks up where "Haunted" abruptly ends, and includes some interesting experimentations with sounds. "Movement of Fear" starts to slowly wrap up the CD with the feeling of slow panic, but also like you have to give in. Then CD ends with "The Cellar", a track of the noises heard in the movie that slowly ends, leaving you wired and ready to listen again. All in all, it is much more of a masterpiece than the movie, which was pretty bad. Had they made the movie revolve around some of the ideas these songs represent, it would have been wonderful.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks made
This is a great listen.Everything in this is dark and gloomy, which Ilike, and of course if you're going to have a "gothic"soundtrack, you have to include Bauhaus, and this is one of Bauhaus's besttracks.Everything on this is haunting and spooky, like "She'sUnreal", that song made me feel creeped out for some reason, maybe itwas the lyrics, but I love that song too.I didn't like the movie thatmuch, and the clip that came with this CD was just more of the same stuff. This CD is reccomended to anyone who likes dark rock music. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Is a Marilyn Manson studio album like thunder without lightning? The name Manson is synonymous with stage theatrics, and studio albums aren't designed to capture such flashing, ephemeral excitement. That being the case, a live Marilyn Manson album is one step up from a studio disc and one notch down from a concert. This powerful 14-song, 70-minute set actually ends with one studio track, "Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes" (also on the Celebrity Deathmatch album). Featuring such Manson concert favorites as "The Beautiful People," "The Dope Show," and the band's breakthrough cover of Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams," The Last Tour on Earth is incendiary, expletive-strewn, and darkly irresistible. Manson is a commanding performer, though not one for the young or upright, as he spews on about LSD and sex with cops, performs "Antichrist Superstar," and has the audience chanting "We hate love, we love hate!" prior to a particularly raucous rendition of "Irresponsible Hate Anthem." That said, The Last Tour on Earth is an exhilarating outing from one of the '90s' boldest personalities. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The next best thing to actually being there...
First off, I am not a Manson fanatic. I do listen to his albums occasionally and found them to be interesting. Although I don't agree with everything this guy says, a few things people should realize is...Marilyn Manson is talented and intellectual. I have read excerpts of his book and seen some interviews, don't be fooled by that freako look of his...this guy knows more than you think. Anyway, on to the review of this CD....one word, AMAZING! Living in Malaysia, there are many forms of censorship...heck, even Linkin Park were asked to tone down their act. So, basically chances of seeing a cow fly is higher than Marilyn Manson performing here. But good for us, we have this CD. Rarely have I seen a CD capture the intensity and power of a live concert. Right from the opening "Inaugaral"...you can imagine Manson slowly creeping his way to the mic. And what follows is a cacaphony of blood-curdling screams, killer guitar riffs and massive crowd cheering, which gives you the excitement of being there. The best part of this album is, I love most of the songs here...yet each is given a new sound, something like an update to reflect playing it live. And it sounds better than ever. Twiggy's skill is definitely prominent in this album, check out the guitar skills in "Sweet Dream" and "Lunchbox"...I was in awe. In short, if you like Manson, this is a must-buy. If you like rock, this is a must-buy. If you're intrigued with Manson but too scared to see a live concert for fear of seeing him do some of the f*cked up things he is rumoured to do on stage...this is the perfect way to appreciate the music without being there. Highly recommended!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best rock live albums to grace my speakers
If I had one complaint about this cd it would be the equalization, as it's kind of bass heavy, but it adds a rawness to the recording, and does contribute to the live feel. So that being said, on to the rest of the review.
This was such an amazing tour, it was the first Manson show I ever attended and I've been a devout fan ever since.

"Inauguration of the Mechanical Christ" : Manson in the smoke and lights starts to rise from the floor on a cross made out of flashing tv's as we hear "This isn't me, I'm not mechanical". The lights are flashing, Twiggy's bass kicks, John5 compliments him with nice guitar phrasing, Pogo throws some effects in for good measure and after another minute, the squealing guitar of the first actual song begins.

"The Reflecting God" : Other than "The Love Song" on the most recent Against All Gods tour, this was by far the best song to get the show started, and it's just as amazing as the studio version. When Manson says "I'm tired of dying for your f***in' sins" in the middle of the song, you feel like you're there at the show. The band is at it's tightest during this tour, and they all lock up on "Shoot, Shoot..".

"Great Big White World" : Great version of this song, as close to the MA version as a live recording can get, John5's guitar parts shine in perticular on this song and listening to it now makes me even sadder that he's no longer in the band.

"Get Your Gunn": Probably the fastest version of this song that I've heard, man, do they haul through it. This song sounds alot more aggressive here and it rocks.

"Sweet Dreams": Complete with crowd clapping and a recognition roar as the guitar intro begins, the first hit for the band and though by now I'm sure they hate playing it, but it always sounds great live. We also have the hell outro on this one too, taken from the end of "Long Hard Road Out Of Hell" which brings it to a big climax before the announcement of Omega and the Mechanical Animals...

"Rock Is Dead": Tapping into the Omega persona, I remember Manson rocking out with this shiny cape, female backgroud singers and confetti blasting as it started and it was amazing
to see. the energy the band had on stage during this song was phenominal.

"Dope Show" : Not much different except that we have the said female singers singing the harmonies along with Manson and the typical altering of city name for the lyric "the drugs, they say..."

"Lunchbox": I'm convinced that since Daisy Berkowitz wrote this guitar lick, that he is the only one that can play it in the right tempo. John5 plays the opening riff with such speed that I'm suprised that band can come in on time.
On this version we also get the arena singalong, with Manson dividing the crowd from left to right and down the center for the "I want to grow up, wanna be..." chorus and it's cool to hear even if you weren't there to participate.

"I Don't Like The Drugs" : Manson tells about his drug dream(which is worth the price of the cd by itself) and then the big DRUGS neon sign appears, the female singers come back out and they groove through the song.

"Antichrist Superstar" : Once seeing him live, you can't listen to this without seeing him up on the podium, in all his glory, directing the army of hands in the air on every, "hey".
This is one of my favorite tracks and comes across even better with the live feel envolved, they've chosen to omit the ending (the time has come, it is quite clear) on the recent tour, but it's here, and it's so powerful and intense that the disc could've ended here.

"Beautiful People" : "How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people? he asks, before going into the classic beat that could only be song. It brings down the house and then some.

"Irresponsible Hate Anthem" : I love hearing the chant of "we hate love, we love hate" just as on the ACSS cd, and the scream of "f*** it" before the explosion of music assaults our ears.
Ginger's drumming on this song impresses me every time, he is indeed a technical musician and a major force behind the band.
This is the most energetic performance on the disc and it brings the show to an end that leaves us wanting more.

"Last Day On Earth": Apparently this was one of the only performances of this song and it is definitly memorable.
All acoustic and stripped down of the digital vocal effects on the chorus, it makes this song that much better then the version of MA. I prefer this one, because it's a lot more emotional, not to mention how rare it is to hear.

APOTET" : The only studio track on here and a excellent song at that. One of the best non album tracks to surface and one of the most industrial sounding since "1996". The lyrics are great and the music is tight, even reviving a part from ACSS in the middle.

The bottom line: no matter if it's on disc or live and in person, Manson rocks and this is another must own.



5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Thing better is seeing them live!
Wow, definitely a must have.After Mechanical Animals was released, people might not liked it and may have been worried, that Manson lost it and went soft.Well, this was probably released to win them back, what at the time could have been considered a Live Best of.The only thing missing really is Angel with the Scabbed Wings.One thing that matters when it comes to live shows is quality, and that's what this baby has.Quality is clear crystal.But it still has that little different sound that you can tell it's live, and it sounds different but in a good way.

Manson and friends also make the show interesting by having a clever intro called Inauguration of the Mechanical Christ (I imagine Manson slowly approaching the mic at this point), Playing Get Your Gunn noticeably faster, Sweet Dreams with The amazing Hell Outro, The interesting Lunchbox medley, Manson talking about his hilarious dream as an intro for I don't like the Drugs (But the drugs like me), and an Acoustic version of The Last Day on Earth which actually outdoes the original.Plus it has the amazing Astonishing Panorama of the End Times as a bonus track.It's a personal favorite of mine.

Just hearing Manson announcing songs like "how does it feel, to be one of the Beautiful People?!" just stirs up emotion, anger and the urge to shout "Hell yeah!" That it just flat out rocks.If you haven't seen Marilyn Manson Live before this is certainly something for you.If you have seen Marilyn Manson Live, then the same thing applies, as it will certainly bring flashbacks.I have seen them live before, but unfortunately the bass was too loud and the mics were not that good, but the show was incredible all together.The energy and artistic skill they are able to bring is amazing.This disc is certainly something not to pass up.You love antichrist, Portrait, or Mechanical?Do you dislike one of those records?You will love this baby either way.Hoped this helped, buy, buy, buy!

Editorial Review

Love 'em or despise 'em, you've got to give Korn props for kick-starting a new metal movement that blends aggressive hip-hop rhythms with roaring hate-metal riffs. In the wake of the band's 1994 debut, many like-minded groups cropped up, including Deftones, Snot, and Limp Bizkit. But with the release of Korn's disappointing 1996 sophomore effort, Life Is Peachy, the imitators seemed likely to usurp the innovators. Maybe that's why Follow the Leader is so crafty and inspired. Instead of continuing on cruise control, Korn have diversified their formula, experimenting with mood and dynamics while intensifying their melody and noise thresholds. "Got the Life" blends a seductive disco beat and vocals reminiscent of "Epic"-era Faith No More with oppressive guitar chimes and squawks. "Children of the Korn" features a propulsive rap beat, throbbing bass lines, and angry guest vocals by Ice Cube. But just when Korn's groovin' psychedelic fury starts to make listeners see red, the band lashes out with "All in the Family," a hilarious rap-metal diss-fest duet with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, that proves Korn are much more than the sum of their rage. --Jon Wiederhorn ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Korn's Last Great Album
Korn was a great band.This was their last five star albums, afterwards the radio popped them into the spotlight and has practically killed them, thou while they cans till make good music, they can't replicate the atmosphere and perfection they had on the first 3 albums.This is the last of those three.Jon's emotion is great on this album and I am one who can relate to him.This album was the height of their nu-metal days and is really the only true "nu-metal album" that I have and enjoy.By true nu-metal I mean evolving rap and rock and this has the most of that, out of all their albums and pulls it off the best.The days of Nu-metal are practically dead, so Korn trying to do any more rap songs, like Play Me from TALITM is just flat out wrong.The only songs I do not like here are Cameltosis and Reclaim my Place.By the way Earache my Eye (the hidden track) is with Cheech Marin as guest and is a Cover of a Cheech and Chong Song.Though Fred Durst appears on All in the Family as it is quite funny and they basically rap and insult each other,I don't detest it like some others do.What makes it even funnier are the insults themselves, they really reflect the days of 1998 with references to Hanson and Austin powers.

Follow the Leader isn't for everybody, either you love it or you hate it.There is no way around it.One problem I feel is that on My Gift to You (one of my favorite Korn songs but still flawed) is that Jon Davis doesn't break down at the end and lead to crying like in the past 2 records though he comes close to it.Ever since then, Korn hasn't been able to replicate their sound.They lost their edge as soon as they got too much into the Radio.Korn was once a great band, but now they are drying up, Jon's gotten fat, and guitarist head has run off to find god, la de da.

People should remember that Korn was once a great band, truly great and had a huge fan base for a reason.Now People are constantly bashing Korn for a variety of reasons.One of which is because it's easy to just say "Korn Sucks".Their old stuff is all Gems and since Issues there has been the smell of filler in the air.Now when people think of Korn they think of the new Korn and not the old Korn.This actually surprised me once I found this out, as a younger friend of mine was shocked when I played the song Blind for them.They were shocked that it was the same band.That's how out of touch people are now, it's quite sad.Once you hear a radio song you assume that the rest of their stuff sounds like that.It's quite wrong, either the rest of the CD is really good or it's really bad, and the record companies are ONLY interested in money, not in the music.That's the situation of today.

Korn was able to express something that no one else could replicate.And now they themselves can't even replicate it.They might as well release a B-sides and rarities collection from that era (which they have plenty of material from), as that would definitely earn the 5 stars that they once earned from me and would make the world turn their ears again, but perhaps we wouldn't want that.Korn is best staying underground or hidden or whatever they were back in the good old days.

Feeling bored by my length review?Well it's not nearly as long as the two for the self title and Life is Peachy (my personal favorite), which I had to shorten as they were more then 1000 words.If you liked this review and album I suggest checking those out as well, but you may have to do a bit of digging through my reviews to find them.But as to my main point here; this is good Korn and a good album, buy it if you like it, remember it's either hit or miss.

1-0 out of 5 stars korn are a bowl of peaches
and a mixed sort of other fruits. tra tra tra transvestite. follow your idol the one in korn who's bisexual. he is the next michael jackson. he's going to molest all his boy fans. he'll make you guys hardcore after you suck him off. tra tra transvestite. and then as korn's roadies, you can be korn's sex slaves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another exellent korn creation
This is definatly kick ass album.
Where do i start.
all in the familly is a classic metal/rap song.
probably the best Fred was ever in.
children of the korn is a great colaboration between metal and hip hop.
2 of my favorites korn and Ice cube.
cameltosis is another great colaboration.
This album just tops off korns great albums.
it's a must to have. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars perhaps it's Abba, it's Abba, it's Abba..
The song "Perhaps", which sounds like a collage of songs is actually half (gasp) Abba's Fernando! I'm wondering what other 70's treasures are hidding in this Cake..

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great
I have all the Cake albums, and I think they are all wonderful. However, despite my partiality to Prolonging the Magic, I really like this album. The songs are the weirdest (with the most bizarre lyrics) out of the four albums, but the musicality can speak to anyone. I especially like "Friend Is A Four-Letter Word" because it's so lyrically simple, but musically complex.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best CD in my collection hands down
You've probably heard the radio tracks: I will survive & The distance, for example.And they are great.But what this album offers is 10 or so other tracks that are genious...the horns, the lyrics, McCrea's deadpan voice...Cake's other two offerings are awesome, but this is the one that hasn't left my CD changer for 4 years.Not a bad song on the album.Check out Open Book, Stickshifts, and She'll come back... ...

5-0 out of 5 stars DEEP PURPLE deserves better than this!
In my opinion, the greatest hard rock band of them all is DEEP PURPLE...and they deserve better than this! Rhino records MUST be putting together something more in depth. Something comparable to the recent double disc Black Sabbath anthology. If you must own some "best of" Deep Purple right now, go ahead and buy it. How can you go wrong with 70+ minutes of Purple. But, I suggest opting for the Rhino 4 disc box set "Shades 1968-1998." With a great band like DP, you'll find that nearly all of the material is high-quality.

5-0 out of 5 stars My first Deep Purple album
Even though i'm only 13 years old, Deep Purple is one of my favorite bands. Everyone keeps talking about how good they are, so I decided to try to get my hands on a copy of this. I've already heard "Smoke on the Water" prior to that (and who hasn't heard SOTW?) and I liked it. After getting this as a x-mas present, I say DP became one of my favorite bands, and I got a good overview of their carrer. The booklet, as far as single-disc compilations go, is very helpful. It gives you the history of DP, shows you the different lineups, givesyou song information, and shows the band's completee discography. After buying this album, all I have to say left is this: I WANT THE REST OF DEEP PURPLE'S ALBUMS!!!! *Starts singing* Smoke on the water, fire in the sky.

5-0 out of 5 stars ****1/2. Excellent Rhino compilation
Rhino Records usually know what they're doing when they assemble compilations and box sets, and this one is no exception.
It's a bit of shame that the David Coverdale-sung numbers "Soldier Of Fortune" and "Might Just Take Your Life" have been omitted, but that's the way it always is with compilations, a lot of people's favorite song is bound to be missing. And besides, there are seventy-nine minutes of music here, so no room for complaining there!

And while diehard Purple fans will probably complain about all the great songs that are missing, more casual listeners should be perfectly happy with this handsomely packaged, well annotated compilation which includes almost all of Deep Purple's best-known songs. "Highway Star", "Woman From Tokyo", "Strange Kind Of Woman", the epic "Child In Time", and of course "Smoke On The Water" are all here, and all of them rank among the absolute classics of early hard rock and heavy metal.
Designed to complement, not compete with, the four-disc box set "Shades", released in 1999, "The Very Best Of Deep Purple" is one of the very best Purple compilations. It is a terrific introduction for the unitiated, and a great pick for the casual listener who just wants one Purple collection on the shelf. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Wish You Were Here is a song cycle dedicated to Pink Floyd's original frontman, Syd Barrett, who'd flamed out years before: two grimly funny songs about the evils of the music business ("By the way, which one's Pink?"), and two long, touching ones about the band's vanished friend. The real star of the show, though, is the production: sparkling, convoluted, designed to sound deeply oh-wow under the influence--and pretty great sober too--with David Gilmour getting lots of space for his most lyrical guitar playing ever. And, though the album is big and ambitious, even bombastic, it somehow dodges being pretentious--the Barrett tributes are honest and heartfelt, beneath all the grand gestures and stereophonic trickery. --Douglas Wolk ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Oops
Sorry for the scathing review I wrote, I've decided to stop judging other peoples music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazon needs better rating scale!!!
Why can you only rate an album 5/5? This deserves 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, etc., etc./5

Okay, so this album may not be the perfect match for all... but for me, it is WICKEDLY AWESOME!!!!!

First off, in response to those who have dissed this album and called it "uncool" and "bad". They have bad taste. And that's right, if you have bad taste don't buy the album, because those with bad taste won't like it. Why should they like it? It's only one of the GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME!!!!

But if you have good taste, keep reading...

In response to thos who have whined about "oh... only 5 tracks?!" Again, bad taste!!! If you are going to judge an album by how many tracks it has regardless of how good they are, you, my friend, have BAD TASTE!

But, if you still are in the good taste category keep reading...

For those who have complained about the cover being innappropriate, you should be the man who is on fire because you honestly don't deserve to live a live not appreciating good music.

Wish you were here is AWESOME, and if you say otherwise, you might as well go and listen to Britney Spears while getting ready to jump off a bridge.

Okay, now for those who actually like good music...

Wish you were here starts off dedicating itself to Syd Barrett, former guitarist and founder of Pink Floyd. It tells a sad story about how he once was a genius writer and guitarist but went mad once involved with drugs. Now, tell me this isn't a sad story... Syd was kicked out of the band to seek mental health after showing signs of insanity. He was replaced, with screaming guitarist, David Guilmore, who played guitar, while Roger Waters, bassist, took Barrett's place as the main "creative drive" of the band...

Pink Floyd as you see in Wish You Were Here was born...

So, in conclusion, folks... If you like good music, buy wish you were here, remembering that if you do not like it, there is always room for one more in the Britney Spears fanclub. But, if you immediately appreciate what Pink Floyd has done, listen to the lyrics in "Shine on you crazy Diamond" and find out how Syd Barrett "Shone like the sun."

Goodnight, Ladies and Gents, and remember, If you don't like this album... you don't have good taste...

1-0 out of 5 stars Clearly Capitalzing on Syd
In this album Roger Waters is just taking advantage of the fact that Syd was a really eccentric guy and making a bunch of god awful retarded music and adding some electric special effects. The group would probably call it "abstract" but it's just a bunch of crap. Buy Piper at the Gates of Dawn or the Dark Side of the Moon, thier alot better. ... Read more
