    Editorial Review

    Any movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is bound to have a soundtrack designed to match his brawn at every turn. The big hype here is the first Guns N' Roses track since 1993 (if Axl Rose alone can be GNR). While the track "Oh My God" alone probably isn't solid enough to distinguish this soundtrack, unreleased cuts from Korn and Limp Bizkit and notable contributions from Sonic Youth, Rob Zombie, Prodigy, and Creed make this an impressive collection of hard rock at the millennium's end. For those interested in subtler moves, Everlast contribute the previously unreleased "So Long," which was allegedly written before the Columbine High School shootings in 1999 and serves as a haunting premonition of the tragedy. Its moody introspection is a suitable counterbalance to the over-the-top rhythms and rage sported throughout. Rapper Eminem is incredibly heated with the aptly named "Bad Influence." --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gave me faith in Chinese Democracy.
    I don't care about the other songs. Limp Bizkit, Rob Zombie, Eminem, Everlast, Sonic Youth - fine artists but that's not why I paid attention to this soundtrack (or anyone else for that matter). There's a reason a special preview is included on the DVD just for the soundtrack.

    There's a reason the preview features the NEW Guns N' Roses song "Oh My God" whilst scrolling text across the screen: "NEW MUSIC BY GUNS N' ROSES."

    There's a reason fanboys were drooling on the Internet before the MTV Movie Awards because they knew there was going to be a 15-second clip commercial for End of Days featuring...yep, you guessed it..."Oh My God" by Guns N' Roses.

    Wow, a dream come true. At the time (1999) it was the first original song in eight years.

    Before then everyone had been speculating as to whether Chinese Democracy was in the works at all.

    Well, it is. It's 2005 now and I truly, firmly believe it will be released soon. Geffen isn't going to waste their $13 million + by throwing out the tracks. And after a while they're going to make Axl cough up his material. I'm betting they won't pass $20 million.

    The good news here is that "Oh My God" is one of the best Guns N' Roses songs ever recorded - ironic considering the departure of Slash, Matt and Duff.

    However if you're not a GN'R snob and not completely against Axl, try opening your ears and really listening to this song. It's great. No, it doesn't have an awesome guitar solo. But it's really hard and gritty - what Appetite for Destruction would sound like had it been processed in the day and age of Manson and Reznor.

    I think this is better than most of the stuff Manson's done and a helluva lot better than anything Trent's done. "Industrial rock" tends to give me a headache - just lots of noise. However this song proves Axl is not only still able to write good lyrics (read the words - pretty deep all considered!) but still able to sing, which I doubted after hearing him perform "Madagascar" and other songs in Rio. (His voice sounded awful then, but if it's any consolation the edited Oh My God track sounds like he did back in '93, only a bit edgier given the nature of the song.)

    This is GN'R/Axl once again showing us that they/he are able to be more than "just" rock musicians. They did hardcore metal, they did rock, they did country-western, they did rap-metal, they did rock ballads, soft ballads, and now this.

    I love Guns N' Roses.

    4-0 out of 5 stars MUSIC TO A MOVIE I'VE NEVER SEEN
    I don't know anything about the movie this soundtrack is based on, but this collection of songs is like a great late '90s hard rock mix tape, full of gloomy, ominous, hopeful and deadly, high profile artists and songs. The Frankenstein experiment gone wrong in Prodigy's "Poison" is dramatic and fun listening, Everlast's "So Long" got some bad publicity as allegedly being a song obsessed by a certain high school killer, it is truly less menacing,being a beautiful rock ballad about the results of bullying, Guns N' Roses' "Oh My God" successfully fuses old school rock with a nu metal heartbeat,Eminem's cocky "Bad Influence" attempts reverse psychology in an anti-suicide social statement, the more alternative Sonic Youth breezes along in their traditional rhythm and guitar chaos in "Sugar Kane", Korn's big production in "Camel Song" is like an upheaval of late '90s radio, Limp Bizkit's "Crushed" leans on funk, pop, and The Steve Miller Band in a weird jangle song structure, Rob Zombie's "Superbeast Girl On a Motorcycle Mix" sounds like a high school marching band fully geared for war. Twelve tracks in all, these songs sound like they belong together, hard rock with a heart, a halo, and a gun.

    4-0 out of 5 stars NEW GUNS N ROSES! NEW GUNS N ROSES!
    this is a very good cd with a buncha cool stuff from recent metal bands however the one thing that really is incredible is there is a NEW guns n roses song on here! NEW GUNS N ROSES! after hinting at a comeback forever it finally is starting to happen.for those of you who don't know guns n roses was a incredible band in the late 80s early 90s but had a falling out around 1993 and no ones really heard anything about axl or the rest of the band since. if u really like the guns n roses song buy appetite for destruction which is best guns n roses album and wait for the new GNR album "Chinese Democracy" to come out. ...

    Editorial Review

    Oleander take their name from a highly poisonous shrub. A spin of February Son makes one wonder why they didn't decide on a more straightforward name like The Bastard Sons of Alice in Chains. The opening cut "Why I'm Here" is a wholesale clearance on grunge staples: the subdued verses, the Stone Temple Pilots vocals gaining speed as the chorus, wavelike, rises and crashes on the same ears that grew bored with this sound years before. At times the boys in the band stretch in a more interesting poplike direction, but not enough to reach into that part of the brain that remembers strikingly good music. --Jason Josephes ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I could listen to this disc for hours on end!
    I could not keep this CD out of my stereo.It is constantly in rotation with my music collection and typically gets a few more plays than the rest. Since this was their major label debut it was important to come in with a bang and they accomplished that task.This band is exemplified by heavy guitar work, but the unrefined vocals of lead singer Thomas Flowers stick out as one of the most unique things about the group.If you need a disc to listen to all day long everyday, this is the one for you.Here is a track breakdownÉ

    1.YouÕll Find Out:A mysterious guitar intro leads into a straightforward rock track.This song is a great set-up for the rest of the album, good enough to get you interested, but holding back a bit on what they can do.8/10

    2.Stupid:Yeah, this song is the weakest on the CD.Not bad, just not as good as the others.The weakest lyrics on the album could have been saved by great music, but a modest guitar solo leaves a bit to be desired.6/10

    3.Down When IÕm Loaded:A good song overall that got some radio play.Decent guitar hooks combined with lyrics that actually have a meaning lead to a well put together song.8/10

    4.Why IÕm Here:The first ÒslowÓ song on the disc shows the versatility of the band.Strong vocals push this song through with just Òthere enoughÓ guitar and a placid drum part that tie the song together and push it through to the end.10/10

    5.I Walk Alone:Catchy singing with nice string arrangement leads into one of the best songs on the disc.No one item in this song sticks out; everything melds well into a song that most people can relate to and is fun to listen to.10/10

    6.Lost Cause:My personal favorite, high-energy guitar work drives this song from start to fake finish to starting again to the actual finish (listen to the song to see what I mean).Fantastic lyrics and a slamming drums top this song off.11/10

    7.Where Were You Then?Not a bad song, but you can feel the formula of the band really develop in this song.Not a bad thing, you just really start to recognize what you are in for.8/10

    8.Shrinking The Blob:Starts out with a great guitar intro, but then it falters.The music overall is good (especially in the chorus) but the lyrics are really weak and this song leaves some to be desired.6/10

    9.How Could I?Time to slow it down again, which is a nice change of pace.With an album of driving rock sounds, hearing a ballad with string accompaniment and good lyrics was just what was needed.9/10

    10.Boys DonÕt Cry:Every once in awhile a cover hits home with the same energy and passion as the original and this cover (originally by The Cure) does just that.An all out drive to the finish, this song rocks.Turn the stereo up when this tune hits.10/10

    11.Never Again:The final song really encompasses the whole CD very well.From the slow melodic intro to the driving middle, and the reflective end, this song leaves you wanting more. Throw in the best lyrics on the disc and you have another winner.10/10

    This CD is a winner and I would recommend it to anyone.It gives you a great combination of fabulous lyrics, grinding guitar, driving drums and enough fun that you want to listen to it over and over.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A band that is definitely paving paths for future pop/rock
    What can you expect from a CD which has a little robot in a flower field on the cover?A WHOLE lot.Oleander have their instruments tuned (and distorted at the same time) to perfection.They can also play with a superlative amount of talent, with lead singer Thomas Flowers' distinctive vocals.To many people, this album is a breath of fresh air over " Shrinking The Blob", which some found to be inferior.
    Here is a track breakdown:

    1. You'll Find Out- Excuse me, but did someone see or hear an alien UFO land on the beginning of this song?Very different and distorted.Hence, does this recall the opening style or sound to Nirvana's "Stay Away?"-4/10

    2. Stupid- Better than the first; completely listenable.Ends a little bit too abruptly, though.-5/10

    3. Down When I'm Loaded- THE BEST FRIGGIN' SONG ON THIS WHOLE DAMN ALBUM!!!This was also a radio hit a while back.Perfectly paced song, with excellent alternative guitar hooks.-11/10

    4. Why I'm Here- Just ONE step down from the previous song.This has Nirvanaesque hooks to it.Hence, the beginning of "Heart-Shaped Box."-9/10

    5. I Walk Alone- If I could squeeze in my rating between "Why I'm Here" and "Down When I'm Loaded"-well I actually can, making this song a 10/10.I can also REALLY relate to this song.

    6. Lost Cause- Ummmm...I don't know.I think they could have put a little more time and effort into this song.The guitar choruses are also annoyingly repetitive.-3/10

    7. Where Were You Then?- A very fine song, but the guitar riffs this time on the solo sound random and contrived.-6/10

    8. Shrinking The Blob- SUCKS.-1/10

    9. How Could I?- A beautiful, beautiful ballad, and very ,melodic.Slow and relaxing.I think that every rock album should have a cool-down song like this.-10/10

    10. Boy's Don't Cry- This song seems like a filler, but I have to admit it IS good, although a LITTLE bit fast.-7/10

    11. Never Again- The closing song on this CD, and also a very promising one!It seems like Thomas is talking about breaking some of his bad habits on this song.Role model?You be the judge.-8/10

    Well, that's it.Hopefully this information will guide you to a classic CD.In other words, February Son by Oleander.Buy it now.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Throw Back
    Some say that grunge ended metal forever. Evidently unaware that grunge was itself metal; Oleander set out to disprove the elusive myth. They are a throw back's throw back, representing the leading edge of metal before it descended in the self indulgent clichés of the hair bands. Hard, edgy and only slightly screechy, Oleander will doubtless please old Dio fans who are looking for a return to the good old days, when Devils were devils and rock bands thought that loud meant good. To anyone weaned on the alt craze of the nineties, they will just seem dated. ... Read more

    This album means so much to me...you wouldn't believe.When I first picked up this CD, I was at the absolute lowest point in my life.Every song on this CD was an almost exact reflection of what I was going through at the time.At the time that I bought this CD, I knew next to nothing of Stabbing Westward or their music.I was looking for something new to listen to, and it was really cheap.I've never regreted that purchase.If you're at a really low point in your life, pick up this CD...it will be like having a friend who understands everything that you are going through...because they've been there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most Underrated
    This Album deserves so much more air time.It doesn't get anything on any local radio stations.This music does not seem to age.Audiophiles eat your heart on this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect to listen to during your 'darkest days'
    If you have been through a hard time once, well, I wish you would have had this album during that time.

    But if you're like the rest of the human race and go through hard times more than once, get this cd!

    It's not just 'hard times' or 'darkest days' or 'depressed' it's a great cd to listen to for when you're bummed or just upset. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This 79-minute disc documents Rammstein's live shows from mid-1998. The band's performances include powerful theatrics and pyrotechnics (lead singer Till Lindemann even sets himself on fire), but even without the aid of visuals, this CD is a faithful representation of their explosive energy. Songs "Rammstein" and "Sehnsucht" receive appropriately raw and straightforward readings, while "Bueck Dich" comes gloriously alive with audience interaction and additional electronic rhythms. Also benefiting from the fiery live setting are "Du Hast" and the beautifully mournful "Engel," where the audience enthusiastically joins in on choruses. Aggressive drama is the most obvious feature of this recording, but quieter moments such as "Wilder Wein" provide effective dynamics and pacing. Flake's creative keyboard work, one of Rammstein's most distinguishing features, is generally more prominent in these live versions. The guitar licks of Richard Kruspe and Paul Landers are thick and tight, while drummer Christoph Schneider thrashes away with loose precision. --Mark McCleerey ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid performance
    This is a great live album-it shows you that rammstein is one modern band that doesn't lose all their musicality live. The sound effects from all the visuals work well with the music too. The concert is good from start to finish, even the little sound bites in between songs.

    We open up with Spiel Mit Mir, an odd choice for opener, but a good one. For this one, Till seems to shy away from the mike a bit, so the vocals crack a bit, but it's still good. Next is Bestrafe Mich, which has good crowd interaction and the solo sounds better than the album version. Overall, this track is better than the album version. We follow up with a rather lackluster performance of Weisses Fleisch and then an awesome performance of Sehnsucht. THe crowd noise sounds good here too. Asche zu Asche has better vocals by Richard than the album version, but the part without distortion is a bit out of tune. We then follow with a beautiful song which, sadly, didn't make it to an album. The beautiful Ambient song with acoustic guitars really calms things down... only to have them kicked up again by Heirate Mich after the slow introduction, which is very clean, although the Album version is better. Same with Du Riechst So Gut, which spaces things out too much. Du Hast, however, kicks @$$ live. The vocals aren't quite as good, but the keyboard has an awesome echo and the guitars just sound awesome. This is followed by a good performance of Buck Dich, though not as pounding as the album version. The performance of Engel, however, is amazing. The reverb on the bass makes the song sound awesome.
    Rammstein becomes the climax of the show-and sounds awesome live despite being a mediocre studio track. Laichzeit, however, sounds a bit better on the album. Now we go into the final two songs- Wollt Ihr Das Bett In Flammen Sehen?, which, despite the fact that the intro is missing, is a lot better than the studio track (if such a thing were possible). An awesome song is made much better. And Seemann provides a perfect closer-much more beautiful than the album version, however the keyboards at the end aren't very audible (they're there tho, just listen closesly, and they sound great). This ends one of the most awesome live shows in music history.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Hate!
    This is pure garbage! I hate Rammstein! Warlock and Doro are better! Much better! "Du Hast" is a quee* song!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Amazing Album!
    This is my favorite album by Rammstein.It's a compilation of many of their hits, but most of the tracks are from Sehnsucht.They are absolutely amazing live, and it really comes through in this album.I have Sehnsucht, but I actually perfer this album, "Live Aus Berlin" to the Sehnsucht album.

    Don't think twice about purchasing this CD; it's worth every penny! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful score to a wonderful movie
    Alan Silvistri returns once again to reprise the music that he did from the first film in the trilogy. The soundtrack doesn't disapoint at all. All pure orchestra music full of Back to the Future themes, exciting moments and tempos to fit the moment as if you were watching the movie all over again on your stereo.

    The main title starts off with the familiar Back to the Future theme and seems even more polished and full of life then it was in the first movie.Exciting scores like the Hoverboard chase which has Marty skateboarding around a future Hill Valley on a Hoverboard while being chased by Griff and his gang is a very exciting moment that will get you into the action that was going on in the movie. Another great selection would be the Tunnel Chase towards the end of the movie where Marty has to get a sports almanac off of Biffs car as he is being chased into a tunnel. The music perfectly fits the moment. He's triumphant at certain points and in big trouble at others.Alan really sets the tone well for every moment of these action scenes almost bringing you right into the movie with every horn and string instrument that plays its notes.

    The soundtrack is not just full of action moments though. It has very good building up the moment pieces as well . Burn the book when Marty finaly gets the almanac back and everything is restored is just well performed and Alternate 1985 sends chills down your spine to fit the new environment they find themselves in. Every song on the album is unique but still has that Back to the Future touch to it to keep things familiar with the trilogy score.

    I highly recomend this album to any fan of a good movie soundtrack and especialy one who loves the Back to the Future trilogy. This is an album that won't disapoint and it definitely is Alan Silvistri at his best.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for a myriad of uses.
    I purchased this CD just after a trip to Sri Lanka, where I saw the film in a camel drive-in theatre with cous-cous beverages and olive-leather blanket seats. It was one of the greatest decisions I have made since moving all my underclothes into a tiny red wastepaper basket. I listen to it now while I wax my car with 'I Can't Believe It's Not Car Wax'. Do not ask me for details - simply allow me to say that this CD will change your soul for eternity. Dr. Brown is quite the delectable dish, no? Hhee hhee hhee.

    Editorial Review

    Having scored a massive hit with their debut album, Core, Stone Temple Pilots returned to the same sludge-filled well for Purple, only to come up with an album that's harder, more concise, and filled with thunderous, punishing riffs. Headbangers will rejoice over the grinding guitars of "Meatplow," "Vasoline," "Lounge Fly," and "Unglued," but the album reveals far more than one dimension. They back off the throttle for the hushed (though still intense) "Pretty Penny," "Big Empty" puts a respectable spin on the phrase "power ballad," and the catchy, hook-filled "Interstate Love Song" asserts itself as one of the most memorable alt-rock singles of the '90s. --Daniel Durchholz ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars The classic album that immortalized the group
    Stone Temple Pilots (AKA Purple) (1994.) Stone Temple Pilots' second album.

    Classic nineties alternative rockers Stone Temple Pilots came onto the musical scene in 1992 with their debut album, Core. The album scored Scott Weiland's band a number of alternative rock hits, and both the album and the group that had released it became very popular. It's not surprising that the group wanted to follow the album up, and try to top it. They released their second, self-titled album in 1994 (the album is also known as Purple.) Read on for my review of this album, and see if it tops Core.

    Does this album top Core? The short answer is yes. Core ws an excellent album - one of my favorite alternative rock albums of all time. But, the band's second album improves on the Core formula in pretty much every way imaginable. Much like Core before it, this album had a number of big hits. There's the classic, melodic rock of Interstate Love Song and Vasoline, along with the alternative rock power ballad (if you could call it such) Big Empty, and the straight-up, all-out hard rock assault of Unglued. These hits are some of the band's best of all, and it doesn't surprise me in the least that they still get played on most alternative/hard rock radio stations. But as with any album, you've got to go beyond the hits to fully appreciate this one. The opener, Meat Plow, is one of the group's most underrated tunes. Other underrated works include Kitchenware And Candybars and Silvergun Superman. But the most underrated tunes on the album are the acoustic ones. Beign the kind of group they are, it shocked me how well the band could do songs of this styling - but they more than succeeded, in my book. Most fans of the group call this the band's strongest album. I'm not really the type that likes to play favorites, but if I had to choose a favorite, this would probably be the one I'd pick. It's a must-own for nineties alternative rock fans.

    There's only one version of this album readily available in America, and it's not likely there will be other editions available here soon - this version does the job just fine. I DO have a huge complaint though - THE PACKAGING DOES NOT HAVE THE TRACKLIST (or the name Purple) ANYWHERE ON THE OUTSIDE. If the album is ever reissued for some reason, I am hoping this will be corrected. In addition to the twelve normal album tracks, there is a hidden bonus track - just keep waiting after Kitchenware And Candybars ends, and after a few moments the (rather comical) bonus track will begin playing. There's also an import version with bonus tracks, but it costs so much more than the domestic one that it's not worth shelling out the extra money for. That's all I can really say for edition notes.

    This album made the Stone Temple Pilots into a household name, and appropriately so. This is the band in their prime, doing what they do best. It's not surprising in the least that so many people call this album their favorite work from the group, or that so many radio stations still play songs from it. Like alternative rock? Buy this album.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A driving, deep rock album from a great band--STP!
    With purple, Stone Temple Pilots again return to the scene of the crime, and do more dirty work than ever:This album is full of hook-laden songs.Deep lyrics and an occasional dark or sad slow song are here as well.Fans of 90's rock or STP in general will love the rockers MEATPLOW, Vasoline, and Still remains.I had this on the shelf for a while and when I put it in and listened all the way through, I was amazed at how much more I respect it now. A great rock album that you should give a try when you get the chance!

    5-0 out of 5 stars STP completely revamp their entire sound
    Nothing like their 1992 release with Core but equally as good, the distorted riffs are toned down on this album and Weiland sings in a totally different style, a true testiment to his abilities as a vocalist, often agreed by many to be their best album, Purple is an alt-rock classic and one of the most creative records of the 90's, songs like Vasoline and the always amazing Interstate Love Song, which everyone likes, fan of the group or not remain radio staples today, even the lesser known songs easily could have been singles. How the beautiful "Still Remains" never became a single will continue to baffle me ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    This is exactly what Tipper Gore feared. Expose your bored daughters to the toxic combination of heavy-metal death fantasies, punk-rock nihilism, violent rap misogyny, and fuck-me feminism, and Kittie is what you get. This band belies the notion that the only rock from Canada is either by hollow-voiced sirens or is over-intellectualized prog-rock. The fact that all of the band's members are still in high school is almost incidental, as Spit contains a maturity and insight, not to mention a musicianship, not usually ascribed to the under-21 set. Consider the lyrics to "Paperdoll," which addresses stereotypical images of women: "They try her on for size / She fits nice / One size fits all...." All four members are strong musicians, but special notice must be paid to lead singer Morgan Lander, who whispers kitten-soft one second and lets loose an ear-shattering howl the next. Kittie's aggressive, full-bore music, in the grand tradition of Babes in Toyland and L7, pulls no punches and makes no compromise. --Genevieve Williams ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars I like there other albums better...
    I first heard of the band Kittie after they made their third cd "until the end" because they werent played on the radio or anything where I lived. So after listen to the cd "until the end" I loved the band quickly. Then I went to buy their other two albums. They only had the "spit" cd. So I bought it and listened to it at home. You can tell they are much younger in this album. They tend to have no idea where to put some screaming into certain areas of a song. The song "Johnny" I can't stand at all. But I wasn't to impressed with this album. I recamend "Until the end" a lot more.

    3-0 out of 5 stars At Least It Isn't Evanescence, The Biggest Poser Band Ever
    Kittie, in my opinion, is a very underrated band that proves that not only men can play good music. However, this is definitely not their best album. This tends to fit in more with the rap-metal scene of 2000. Fortunately, this is a billion times than any Limp Bizkit album OR Linkin Park album. Unfortunately, this album is just another "fit-in-the-scene" album. It's not horrible, that's why it gets 3 stars. "Brackish" is OK, and "Charlotte" is possibly the best song on there. "Paperdoll" sucks. "Spit" is good, but "Suck" needs to lay off the F-bomb.

    However, this isn't that cheesy Wal-Mart trash by Evanescence. ... Read more
