Editorial Review

The splicing together of nu metal, rap, funk, and sterile electronica laced with dark melodies as infectious as anything Britney has to offer inspired 6 million people to purchase copies of Limp Bizkit's Significant Other. With Chocolate Starfish, they perfect their formula. From the electro-infused "Intro" through the contagiously chugging "My Generation" to the straight-up rap of "Getcha Groove On," Chocolate Starfish is a slick, clinical, and flawless platform for Fred Durst's effortlessly savage--and occasionally unintentionally comic--sociological rants geared toward disaffected youth. Ultimately, though, it's that undeniably intelligent musical backdrop--the brooding guitar sound that gave the Mission Impossible 2 theme haunting new life and menace, and that defines "Hot Dog," "Full Nelson," "My Way," "Rollin'," "Boiler," and "It'll Be Okay"--that makes this a seething work of genius. The fact is, with rap and rock saying pretty much the same thing, Limp Bizkit have plenty of competition. They just do what they do better than everyone else. --Dan Gennoe ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Limp Bizket has lost their touch
The best Limp Bizket album of all time is by far 3 dolla bill. All following albums have been mediocre and satisfy nothing more then the pure MTV neo hardcore audience that want to be with the "in crowd" at junior high school. Just attend a Limp Bizket concert and you will see amazingly young people running scared from the mosh pits with wild eyed fear. Lord knows they then go home to tell their friends that they had "a BLAST" at the show, "moshed the entire show" and "almost got into a fight with a two ton gorilla." The CD does show some effort however with catchy guitar work and reasonably decent mixed backbeats, but thats about the extent of it. Fred Durst is in with the whole Carson Daily, Kid Rock, Eminem TRL crowd that everyone seems to love today. In other words Durst is the Christina Aguilera of hard rock/rap core and it was quite fitting to see them together on stage at this years MTV Video Music Awards. If you want a truly innovative CD I recommend Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory, any Deftones CD, Taproot - Gift (Fred Durst doesnt much like Taproot for some reason *shrug*), or any Pitchshifter cd. Hope this helps.

3-0 out of 5 stars I dunno about this one
There is no doubt that this album will have heads banging all over America and from what I have seen, the UK. The band have selected to smash out a heavier more metal sound on many of these tracks, ie. full nelson, hot dog and rollin' (air raid vehicle). Any Bizkit fan will love these. They have also put in there mellow but heavy bass tracks, ie. livin' it up, my way, and the one. However, the lyrics to these tracks stay typically Limp, rapping and singing about how damn f'ing good they are at partying and rockin'. Now i am not against this but maybe a change in lyrics might be nice. But my main complaint of this album is there move into DR. Dre type rap, not what Bizkit are about at all, no better example than 'getcha groove on', which is very cheesy and typical. Almost gangster rap.

My main worry about Bizkit is their future. It is plainly obvious that they are goin' to sell out. I bought this album in a supermarket alongside the new Spice Girls CD. Not what i would expect. BIZKIT, FOR THE REAL FANS, PLEASE DON'T SELL OUT.

Editorial Review

"Hey Man, Nice Shot" may have been a fluke hit, but Filter's Richard Patrick has spent four years working on the follow-up album, mastering enough sonic variety to ensure that Filter stick around the moshpit. Programmer Brian Liesegang is gone, but Patrick continues on, picking up the slack and yielding nothing. Crowd reaction is impossible to anticipate, but at 70 minutes, Title of Record is an exhaustive collection of hyperkinetic guitars, subliminal melodies and thunderous dynamics--which is to say, it sports plenty of hard rock aggression, but is firmly rooted in the pop experience that keeps the songs in your head. "It's Gonna Kill Me" has a stalker's vibe in its techno-metal roots, while "Take a Picture" and "Captain Bligh" are radio-friendly unit shifters that suggest that underneath the technology rests a beating, and often bruised, human heart.--Rob O'Connor ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An incredible, emotion-filled experience.
I almost find it hard to belive that Richard Patrick, the head hauncho of Filter, was the original touring guitarist of Nine Inch Nails. While there still are touches of NIN-styled industrial-rock, in truth this band is really very different from Trent Reznor's. First off, Filter is much more subtle in its music, with much more varying elements than Nail's blatent, dark pounding. While this album is still dark, occasionally very much so, Filter chooses not to make it so painfully obvious, and instead uses undertones that the music creates to set the mood. And if you can unfold the music, you realize that the tone of the album tends to be one that is rather depressing; even the softer songs like the acoustic hit single ' Take A Picture ' and the soft closer ' Miss Blue ' have a haunting aura about them. But another difference between this album and a Nine Inch Nails work is the type of darkness that it portrays. While Reznor is content to continuously scream and moan about Hell, violence, God ( or the lack there of ), and self-hatred, Patrick paints pictures of, and occasionally even sings about, lost love, emotional betrayal ( ' Captain Bligh ' talks about a lawsuit filed against Patrick by a fan of the band ), self doubt, and even environmental damage. And to accompany this, Filter uses a wide variety of styles to augment their music that makes their vision that much more varied then Reznor's. While they still have songs that could be called industrial rock similar to Nine Inch Nails ( the most obvious example being ' Welcome to the Fold ' ), they somehow manage to sound different, at times very much so, and the results are stunning.

I want to make this clear: I have absolutely no problem with NIN; in fact, I own some of their albums. I am mearly using these comparisons to give people who don't know what to expect something to use as a gauge to see if they might be interested. Not comparing the band, or the album to anyone else, I can say this: the album is amazing. Patrick has an amazing ability to put his emotions into cryptic songs that are on all sides of the musical scale, all of them with incredible results. Every song is excellent, and the album as a whole is well worth the buy for those interested.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Utopia of Auditory Sensations
Finally, a CD that you can listen to without having to program in a few select tracks first, because the entire CD is simply mind blowing. After hearing the new record I have recieved a whole new outlook on the musically inclined group Filter. Sure, "Short Bus" had it's few choice selections (Hey Man Nice Shot, for one), but it lacked the quality and essentials of a great recording; however, the new album easily dominates the bands debut album with its variety of sound and brave experimentation with some melloer acoustical instruments (Take A Picture and Miss Blue) and also with the explosive sounds of "Welcome to the Fold" and "It's Gonna Kill Me". And I am further impressed with the electronica sounds of the track, "The Best Things". Richard Patrick has unquestionably better defined himself as an outstandingly talented musician with the creation of this release. Through the departure of Brian Liesegang, former co-programmer, Patrick has been given the freedom and ability to reveal his musical ingenuity. Some may feel that "Title of Record" is a step down from "Short Bus" due to the lack of industrial-like sounds and the reduction of the, sometimes repititiuos, heavier instrumental playing; however, the bands musical talents are portrayed much better due to the use of some of the lighter sounds (acoustic guitars) and also through a variety of other sounds utilized by the improved group. And if some listeners are distraut over Patrick's so-called whining in a couple of the tracks, remember that music is an artistic way to express oneself; music is an escape for the oppressed feelings which one develops from this sometimes overwhelming life, in other words, he's just getting somethings off of his chest through his musical gift. Besides it sounds great anyway. I would also like to add that Richard Patrick's voice is nothing less than amazing. I feel that it is essential to add the second album (in order not in ranking) to your collection. And it is my hope that Richard Patrick and Filter continue on in the production of such fine musical perfection as this.

1-0 out of 5 stars In response to John
When I write a review, I "call 'em as I see 'em". There is no denying Trent Reznor is was very talented at what he's done. His songwriting was more impressive than Filter or Marilyn Manson and on that level I agree with you. However, NIN is not in a competition with Filter but rather with themselves to always top their previous work. For a band to release only once every 5 years is inexcusable. ... Read more

Editorial Review

It may be too cynical to assume Hybrid Theory changed its name to Linkin Park in order to appear right next to Limp Bizkit in your local record bin. But rock-rap workouts like "One Step Closer" and "Papercut" do make Linkin Park a comfortable fit with Fred Durst and his ilk. Producer Don Gilmore (Pearl Jam, Lit, Eve 6) and twin vocal threats Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda serve up industrial-strength rap and rock melodicism with equal aplomb on this woulda-been-self-titled debut effort. "Points of Authority" aims to sound like Trent Reznor wanking it up with Lars and company, whereas guitarist Brad Delson's Edge-y harmonics help "In the End" and "Pushing Me Away" evoke a dark romanticism akin to A Perfect Circle. Curiously, the band gets by with no bass player, while sample-happy DJ Joseph Hahn's step into the spotlight on the instrumental "Cure for the Itch" suggests a potential for eclecticism that could help Linkin Park outlive its seemingly transient genre. --Bill Forman ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Move Over Limp Bizkit
You can stop waiting for the next best thing in rock n roll. The debut album by Linkin Park is the best I've heard in a long time. These newcomers combine rock, rap, sampling, scratching, and a variety of other genres to create a sound fusion that's all their own. The first single, One Step Closer, is as angry and sonically powerful as anything Limp Bizkit or Papa Roach has ever released. The vocal tandem of Mike and Chester provide a perfect balance in order to come at the listener from all directions. Finally a band has released an album where all the tracks don't sound like the same song. Especially of interest is the band's DJ and resident sampler, Big Bad Mr. Hahn, whose influence can be heard dramatically in such songs as Papercut and By Myself. Mr. Hahn adds another layer to the music that most bands are missing. His skills serve the complement the resounding bass and drums that are the backbone of Linkin Park's unique sound. The band really excels in mixing up the tempo of each song and surprising the listener with each passing minute. Don't be fooled by the ballad-like beginning of Crawling (one of the album's finest tracks), the band raises and lowers the intensity enough to get a strong point across. Hybrid Theory is a very beautiful yet intense debut album. Although not an instant classic in the rock cannon, the album shows the kind of promise most new bands at this time are lacking. If Hybrid Theory is any indicator, Linkin Park will soon be known to rock fans throughout the world.

5-0 out of 5 stars sO fReAkIn' kEwL!
I think "sincerety" and "creativity" are just getting SOOO played out. It's time for something new. It's time for Linkin Park.

As the late, great Kid Rock once said, "If music is good, you'll FEEL it." And, while Linkin Park is no Kid Rock, I really FEEL this breathtaking debut. Every single track makes me want to call my parents sell-outs and squeeze Noxzema pads into my mouth until I get really smashed.

Even though the cover art may be the highlight of this album, I can't forget the actual songs. There's the smash hit "One Step Closer", which, in my opinion, perfectly depicts stereotypical teen-angst. "Papercut" sorta sounds like an echo of everything that has been done in rock n' roll history, but it's still really sweet. "Forgotten" has some of those most beautiful and poignant lyrics to come along in weeks - "Taken far from my safety/The picture is there/The memory won't escape me/But why should I care?" That is almost better than the material in Jewel's book of poetry.

I could prolly go on for days about why this is the most subversive fun I've had in 13 years but I really need to get a pair of JNCOs before the store closes. Buy this if ur kewl!!!!11

5-0 out of 5 stars Some of the best hybrid music
As some might know, the band was called Hybrid Theory before their commercial breakthrough, and that name gives you a hint of what this band is like.
No, this band is not Heavy Metal. A lot of people are busy complaining that the guys are a disgrace to Heavy Metal, but really, they are not a Heavy band. They use some metal elements (very well, I might add), along with rap and electronica, which is why some like to label them as Nu-metal. This label might be the most accurate, but their sound is unlike most other Nu-metal bands.
They have a knack of creating very catchy songs, which, of course, explains their commercial success.
More, they really are a bunch of talented artists. Chester sings really well, both aggressive and emotional, even though his voice is a bit untraditional and maybe boyish, but he does it well, and it adds to their distinctive sound.
Mike raps with routine, and complements Chester well, while Brad and Phoenix on guitar and bass does the groundwork in most songs, even if they don't give off any flashy solos. Rob is, in my opinion, one of the best drummers out there, and Joe Hahn - well he is on of the elements that adds to LP's distinctive sound. LP wouldn't be the same without his intelligent understanding of scratching and electronica.
The lyrics are well written and the band keep them universal, so they are easy for everyone to relate to.
Some are annoyed by their heavy use of angsty lyrics, and most of them are about alienation, and yes, they may not be very original, but still well written.
Hybrid Theory is one of the few albums in my personal collection where I can listen to all songs at all times without skipping any of them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars No Vampires at Possum Kingdom
OK, first things first: This album rocks. Heavy melodic riffs and a great moody singer. Great first album, too bad the second was so mediocre. Todd Lewis, the singer, is currently with Burden Brothers, a Dallas area band who puts on a great live show.

On to my point: "Possum Kingdom" is not about vampires, despite what goth fanboys want to believe. (...)

"The kids have been coming up and telling us that the song fits with all this Vampire stuff, but we didn't even get that. We actually have gotten these vampire-looking people at the shows. I think that we were oblivious to vampire references. Actually, it's just a ghost story. "Possum Kingdom" is a lake by our houses in Texas. You know, in Texas you hang out with your family and tell these ghost stories that are kinda, almost true. People believe those folk tales, and that was one of them. Or, it was based on one and we just took it somewhere else."

I think by "ghost story" she's referring to one of those "this guy raped and killed a bunch of girls here" stories told around a campfire.

Anyway, buy this album. I've had to buy three, since I keep lending it out and not getting it back....

3-0 out of 5 stars One-Hit Wonder?
Rubberneck is Toadies' debut album. It is a little more blues sounding than most of what was released at the time, but still sounded a lot like the rest. It is a worthy effort from a band that just seemed to disappear as quickly as they exploded with their hit song "Possum Kingdom". In case there's anyone who still doesn't know: "Possum Kingdom" is about a vampire.

Rubberneck contains three really good songs and the rest is either okay or a little immature lyrically. Two songs in particular, "Happyface" and "Velvet", are nothing more than the mindless rantings of a teenager.

The three real quality songs on this album are "Backslider", "Possum Kingdom", and "Tyler". "Possum Kingdom" especially will likely go down as one of those rock station staples that you get from bands that are better than one-hit wonders but don't ever seem able to capitalize on their initial success. (Living Colour: "Cult of Personality" is an excellent example of this)

I'm interested to see what Toadies manages to come out with after they've been doing something other than releasing an album for the last six years. Maybe they can capitalize on "Possum Kingdom" after all.

Editorial Review

The latest installation of the Crow saga features a slew of impressive names contributing exclusive material to the film's soundtrack, including Kid Rock, Filter, Rob Zombie, Hole, and Monster Magnet. Filter and Rob Zombie cheat a bit with "exclusive remixes" of "The Best Things" and "Living Dead Girl" respectively. But Hole cover Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue." Courtney Love sings it like she learned it from '60s garage rock legends the Chocolate Watchband (a good thing). Monster Magnet are charged with a wall of guitar for "Big God." Among the previously available material, Tricky delivers his usual mix of mood and general psychosis with a new mix of "Antihistamine" in which he sounds like a mentally disturbed subway rider cursing to himself. Pitchshifter deliver the life-affirmation anthem "Everything Sucks (Again)." Even actress Juliette Lewis takes a turn at the mic with the Infidels on "Bad Brother." At 71 minutes, it's an epic.--Rob O'Connor ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting and Very Cool
It's odd that a new soundtrack would feature so many "old" songs. Rob Zombie and Filter offer new remixes of their popular songs, and Hole offers a remix of "It's All Over Now Baby Blue" which was available as a B-side on the "Malibu" single. The Tricky Track is a barely remixed version of antihistimine, and Kid Rock's contribution "Warm Winter" dates from 1995. So if you are a fan of these bands looking for new material be forewarned! However, the soundtrack is a great compilation of some of the best artists in the alternative rock scene. THE CROW has always featured great soundtracks, and this is no exception! I enjoy the music better than the films in most cases, and I was not disappointed this time around. Definitely a must-have CD for all you alt-rock fans because it gives you a good mix of great bands. The perfect solution for "what do I play" while cruising around this Summer.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Remix Soundtrack
I was surprised by this cd. First off it is mostly remixes of older songs by these artists which wasn't surprising. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this album. Kid Rock, Static X, and Filter's tracks are all pretty good and i don't usually like those artists. Rob Zombie's remix of "Living Dead Girl" is something to note. I was a little dissapointed with Stabbing Westward, one of my favorite artists, but there remix is all right, the original is better though for "Waking Up Beside You". Overall the albums seems to portray the movie well (if its anything like the previous Crow movies). There is a lot of techno-industrial stuff and the lyircs to most of the songs capture the Crow well. The best track overall has got to be Danzig "Underbelly of the Beast", a remix of "Belly of the Beast" off the new Satan's Child cd. It rocks and is probably better than the original and the chorus portrays teh Crow almost perfectly "Down in the belly of the beast I lay, all I save is my pain." Definitly worth your money!

1-0 out of 5 stars Salvation: Save me from this CD!!!
Without ever seeing the movie, I can still tell you that this CD is horrible, especially when comparing it to the first Crow CD. The only good song on it was Static X's cover of Ministry's "Burning Inside." It's an incredible cover with lots of intensity, distortion, and the lead singer of Fear Factory as a guest star! However, I never thought I would see bands like Kid Rock or Filter on a Crow CD. I've never seen the movie, but don't buy the CD. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first, but worth a listen
An eclectic mix of artists is what make up the lineup for The Crow: City of Angels soundtrack, but those looking for the same type of remorseful, atmosphere driven songs that made up the first soundtrack will find a testosterone driven mix of songs here. Hole covers Fleetwood Mac's "Gold Dust Woman" and the cover is surprisingly good and makes Hole actually sound like a talented band. White Zombie offers a cover of KC & The Sunshine Band's "I'm Your Boogieman", one of WZ's last tracks recorded before their breakup. Filter's pre-"Title of Record" song "Jurassitol" is solid, and proof the band once actually rocked. Bush's rather depressing "In a Lonely Place" sounds like a throw away track, and Iggy Pop (who was also in the film) offers a live version of "I Wanna Be Your Dog" which adds a nice edge to the album. Korn and the Deftones offer "Sean Olsen" and "Teething" respectively, both of whom making appearences here before they got big, although I found Korn's song rather repetitive. However, Tricky & The Gravediggaz "Tonite is a Special Night" and Above the Law & Frost's "City of Angels" seem so out of place its not even funny. All in all, the good pretty much outweighs the bad, and at least its better than The Crow: Salvation soundtrack.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best soundtrack ever!!!
I've got so many soundtracks, such as Titanic, City of Angels, Days of Thunder, D2 : The Mighty Ducks, Twister, The Faculty, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and others. A lot of these soundtracks are very good, but they don't compare to The Crow : City of Angels. I've had this soundtrack for quite some time and even though I still buy other soundtracks I just can't get bored of this one. Hole, Bush, and Deftones have some good songs on there. Though the reason why I keep listening is because of "I'm Your Boogieman" by White Zombie, "Jurassitol" by Filter, "Sean Olson" by Korn, and "I Wanna Be Your Dog (live)" by Iggy Pop. These songs are the reason why I never get bored with it. If your a hard rock fan like myself then this soundtrack is perfect for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Some REAL original metal.
Max Cavalera, the man behind Soulfly has done some great innovative things with his band. Soulfly has kept the tribal sound from Max's former band Sepultura. The guitar work by Max and Mikey isn't the greatest but it is consistant. Probably the most outstanding thing about Soulfly is the percussion. The tribal beats in Soulfly's music are virtually unheard of in today's metal(except for Sepultura). That is what sets them apart from all the other "Nu-Metal" bands. Max Cavalera has one of the most brutal, aggressive voices I have ever heard in my life. His voice isn't as brutal as it was with Sepultura, but it is still brutal. There is also a number of guest appearances on this album that also help to improve the quality of the music. "Pain" is a quite impressive song featuring two of Sacramento's most talented singer's: Chino Moreno and Grady Avenell. "Terrorist" is another outstanding track featuring Tom Araya from Slayer. My favorite song on PRIMITIVE is "Jumpdafuckup" with guest vocals by Corey(#8) from Slipknot. The song has given me new respect for Corey as a singer. I think that he sounds better when he is backed by Soulfly than he does Slipknot. Another favorite of mine is "Soulfly II" which is an instrumental track that is mellow with some cool beats. So, if you want some really original sounding metal, pick up PRIMITIVE quick. If you like this, check out Sepultura's CHAOS A.D. and ROOTS.

5-0 out of 5 stars brazilian hardcore
this is an excellent follow-up to their debut cd. with soulfly, max cavalera has expanded upon the experimentation with brazilian style drums and chanting that he began with sepultura. this isn't some boring world-music, though. this is a hardcore cd. the guitar sounds are immensely heavy (he takes off the top two strings), and the bass is a constant rumble underneath the tunes. there are several guest appearances, chino from deftones, sean lennon, and tom araya from slayer most notably. the songs they appear on are still soulfly songs, though, the guests never upstage the band. the reason to buy this band's music as opposed to all the other metal bands out there is the tribal sounding percussion, and their willingness to innovate. i only wish the album was longer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Oh boy.
Well I just bought this album and im very impressed with soulfly.Iv just recently started to become a fan of Metal and let me tell you c.d's like this are gonna keep me hooked on the metal scene for a while. Iv listened to lots of metal and none are as emotional or as musicaly talented as Soulfly. Anyways This C.D wont be for the Nu Metal fan , more for the industrial fan , and if you dont like MOBO influlences then just forget it as its got Hip Hop & R&B in it. If you like bands like Fear Factory/Slipknot/V-Mob/ ect ect ya'll dig this c.d alot. ... Read more

Editorial Review

It's fitting that a movie about gun-wielding Elvis impersonators should boast an original soundtrack that's so criminally unoriginal. 3000 Miles to Graceland opens unpromisingly enough with the watered-down, depoliticized Rage Against the Machine-isms of (hed) Planet Earth's "Killing Time," before moving on to the post-Nine Inch Nails butt-rock of Filter's "It's Gonna Kill Me" and Nothingface's "Bleeder." As for electronica, the Crystal Method's 1997 "Vapor Trail" bests BT's more recent "Smartbomb," while Hardknox deserves credit for its blatant recycling of Fatboy Slim tricks on "Come in Hard." The result is an album so generic that reasonably inspired tracks like A3's "Mansion on the Hill," and Hednoize's "Loaded Gun" feel as out of place as Kenny Wayne Shepherd and the King himself. --Bill Forman ...

If you saw the movie '3000 Miles To Graceland' then you know what kind of music to expect from its soundtrack. However, if you didn't see the movie, you'll be wondering what bands like [Hed]P.E. and Nothingface are doing on the same album with Elvis. And there's really no answer to that; other than that they were trying to boost the album's appeal. Most of the songs are featured on the band's full-length CDs and therefore only become enjoyable if you haven't heard them yet (i.e. Spineshank, [Hed]P.E., Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Crystal Method, etc.). The real gem on this soundtrack is the Elvis Presley classic "Such A Night", which you can now call a 'classic' thanks to its appearance here. "Such A Night" really should've been the movie's theme, in place of the lackluster "Franklin's Requiem" (George Clinton). And since it's not featured on ELV1S 30 #1 Hits, this CD becomes a must-own for the diehard Elvis fan.

Of the 14 tracks, we could've done without about four: "Smartbomb" (BT), "Come In Hard" (Hardknox), "Loaded Gun" (Hednoize), and the aforementioned theme song. All those songs are nothing compared to The Crystal Method's "Vapor Trail", which is the only techno song you can call good. But since they were featured in the movie I guess you're forced to include them. Hah. The few great songs are "Killing Time" by [Hed]P.E., "In 2 Deep" by Kenny Wayne Shepherd and the epic "Such A Night". But as I said before, the fact that they are featured on the artist's earlier albums make them only great to the uninitiated. The one track that really jumped out at me is Bender's awesome "Angel Dust"; which fit in very nicely with 'the van scene' (as I like to call it). That song might've actually spawned my liking of them. Sadly, on another down note, Uncle Kracker's "Who's Your Uncle?" is an edited version of the song; which is kind of odd considering that "Killing Time" isn't. And also, Uncle Kracker's smash hit "Follow Me" was featured in the movie and is NOT on the soundtrack. Go figure?...

The music on this soundtrack is either nu-metal, techno, blues, or classical; in the case of Elvis. There is great diversity from song to song and I think that allows for a better-than-average soundtrack. But still, there are a few aspects that keep it from being perfect. As I said, "Follow Me" wasn't included here when it was in the movie; and the same goes for the Elvis tracks "My Way" and "Trouble". It's hard to believe they didn't include Elvis songs when the movie was loosely based on The King himself. And, again, as I said, Uncle Kracker's track is edited; which in turn makes it unmemorable and annoying to listen to. Without those inaccuracies, this soundtrack would've been awesome. Even so, I highly recommend it if you saw and enjoyed the movie. And even if you haven't seen '3000 Miles To Graceland' yet, the soundtrack is still beneficial and worth frequent listens. So if you enjoy nu-metal, techno, blues and Elvis--and can handle them all at once--then certainly buy this album.

5-0 out of 5 stars A soundtrack that is doing better than the movie?
I got this soundtrack as a Christmas present and this is one of the cds I wanted because of Such A Night by Elvis Presley was on the cd, and if the soundtrack didn't have the song on it, then I would not have wanted this cd. At looking at the 8 presious reviews, everbody that listened to this cd, liked it. But a whole lot of people didn't like the movie. The cd has two soundtracks, first is Vapor Trail and the 2nd is Franklin's Requiem. The soundtrack has various singers like (Hed) Planted Earth, Filter, Elvis Presley, Bender, Uncle Kracker, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Here is the tracks

1 Killing Time
2 It's Gonna Kill Me
3 Bleeder
4 Mansion on the Hill
5 Smartbomb
6 In 2 Deep
7 Who's Your Uncle
8 Come in Hard
9 New Disease
10 Angel Dust
11 Vapor Trail
12 Loaded Gun
13 Franklin's Requiem
14 Such a Night

I'm sure you pretty much know what the movie is about. If you don't know who the two guys are that are on the cover, they are Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner. But if you are a big Elvis Presley fan and want a soundtrack that has more Elvis Presley songs on it, I will reccomend to you Lilo & Stitch. This soundtrack is the soundtrack of one of the viloent movies that came out last year. This is one of the soundtracks to buy and please watch the movie if you have not seen it yet. It is kind of hard to believe that this soundtrack is doing better than the movie. And getting better reviews too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Praiseland for Graceland
This soundtrack is one of the best yet. Extremely good mix of music that correlate nicely with the contents of the film. The song that really makes the soundtrack incredibly, however, has got to be the song "bleeder" by nothingface. This is a band that, in my opinion, should be getting a lot more recognition than they have in the past. It's nice to see them finally get at least some recognition. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Though a well-publicized marriage did much to raise his celebrity profile, Guy "Mr. Madonna" Ritchie's claim as one of the world's most promising young filmmakers was already secure. Extending the gambit he began on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the English director's handpicked collection of pop songs for his jewel heist romp Snatch is a dizzying delight that eschews era and genre concerns in favor of flavorful character and loopy fun. Though his musical sense is one of the elements that have inspired Tarantino comparisons, Ritchie is clearly a league of one here. With a little fresh input from musical ally Klint, this anthology score ranges from the electro club mixes of Overseer and Mirwais to the vintage R&B workouts of Maceo Parker, Huey "Piano" Smith, and Bobby Byrd, with some pop kitsch of the 1970s (Johnston Brothers' "Hernando's Hideaway") and '80s (the missus's "Lucky Star") to keep the proceedings ever fresh and askew. Ritchie's pop choices are no less inspired, from Oasis and Massive Attack to the Specials' classic, "Ghost Town," and The Stranglers' own underrated jewel, "Golden Brown." --Jerry McCulley ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Musical Madness... but oh how wonderful it is!
To start, You really should see the movie before listening to the soundtrack, for, while not required, it will help you understand why pieces like "F**king in the Bushes" are on the same album with "Hava Nagila".

Now that the minor disclaimer is out of the way... this is one of the strangest and greatest collections of music of all time. Ritchie's selections range from classic Broadway ("Hernando's Hideaway") to reggae ("Dreadlock Holiday") to Irish folk ("Golden Brown") to hard rock ("F**king in the Bushes") to DJ techno remixes ("Angel", "Sensual Woman"). It's a collection to make the head spin, but not only does it all fit one one album, it does it wonderfully, combined with strings of dialogue from the movie ("Nemesis" and "Declaration" being my personal favorites). Without question the best piece on the album is "Golden Brown", a slightly off-kilter drinking song that is more than capable of standing on its own. Along with it is Oasis's hard-rocking "F**king in the Bushes", one of the few good performances by the pathetic "We hate the Beatles so much we want to be like them" band. "Cross The Tracks" seems to blend New Orleans style with modern music's beat, making it a definate keeper, while "Don't You Just Know It" is a 50's beach party, and, following the incredibly intense "F**king in the Bushes", seems to break the sound in just the same way "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" blasts into "Here Comes The Sun" (That's on The Beatles' Abbey Road, for all you nonbelievers). This could go on and on through almost every song, but there just isn't enough room. It's an album for all ages - I'm very much a classic rocker and found even the modern techno entertaining, although Ritchie does plug his wife ("Lucky Star"? Please, God, no!), marring the album, but, hey, that's what the 'skip' button is for.

Once again, this is a motley collection of music that somehow manages to fit together into a coherant and funny soundtrack to a coherant and funny movie. A must-have for fans of just about any music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great movie....GREAT soundtrack!!!
I saw the movie last night and thought it was just tremendous! Brad Pitt was hilarious in it (for the most part) with the thick accent of GIBBERISH that you can't even understand a word he is saying. The plot was tremendous and very funny! And another thing struck me when I was watching the movie...THE MUSIC! They mixed nearly 30 years of music in one movie. And each song served a purpose and it was outstanding. My favorite track, by far, is Oasis' song...lets just say its called (something) in the bushes. After that, the song Golden Brown by the Stranglers (must be an English band because I've never heard of 'em, which is sad to say that I haven't heard them before here in the U.S. cuz they rock). Other than that, the dialogue tracks are part of some of the funniest parts of the movie. I don't want to give anything away, but if you haven't seen the movie, think about what Avi says on track 20 and when you see the movie you'll see what I'm talking about. =P This is a must-buy soundtrack for 2001 with all genres included!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I ADORE this film, and I remember liking the music in it. So when saw the soundtrack was on sale, I just grabbed it. I love it. It's great for when company is over because it's a mix of different style - something for most everyone (or at least most everyone that I know!). I took a star off my rating for selfish reasons: "Lucky Star" (blegh! I know it was in the film, but it brings the CD's groove to a screeching halt) and because there weren't more quotes from the movie! Looks like the import has more quotes - since I got my U.S. version cheap, I might by the UK version... ... Read more

Editorial Review

Based on the hit comic book about a man who returns from the dead to avenge his killers, the film adaptation of The Crow suffered a cruel irony when star Brandon Lee (son of martial arts superstar Bruce Lee) died during production after a bizarre onset accident. That event only deepened the film's aura of death and gothic unease, moods that are brilliantly underscored by this well-chosen collection of stark alt rock, dark metal, and industrial dirges.

The opener, the Cure's typically angst-ridden "Burn," is about as sentimental as this album gets, bookended by Jane Siberry's wistful "It Can't Rain All the Time." Sandwiched in between is a virtual primer on powerful mid-1990s alt and industrial rock, from Nine Inch Nails hammering Joy Division's "Dead Souls" into its own image to the blistering snarl of Helmet, Pantera, and the Rollins Band. So-called pop-song scores often have a cheap afterthought feel to them; this one, a refreshingly integral part of the film itself, stands as a great album in its own right. --Jerry McCulley ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent soundtrack
The Cure's opening track "Burn" is perhaps one of their best songs (and very appopiate for the Crow...and well placed in the film). "Golgotha Tenement Blues," "Big Empty," "Dead Souls," and "After the Flesh" are also well placed in the film, and are great songs that carry both the action and emotion of the film perfectly. Medicine's "Time Baby III" is a cool song too, but the gem is the end piece "It Can't Rain All the Time." Jane Siberry sings it beautifully, and is is just the sweetest song in the world (actually made me cry). Rage Against the Machine is not all that bad here, though I felt both it and Rollin's Band were inappropriate (I think Rollin's got confued between the leather-clad skull-heade spirit of vengeance and the crow). Pantera's song works in the movie, but on the soundtrack...it's just stupid. Jesus & Mary Chain's "Snakedriver" is a good reminder of the eighties, as is Violent Femmes' "Color Me Once" (after all that's when the Crow supposedly takes place), and "Slip Slide Melting" is an okay addition. Overall, this is one of the best soundtracks ever produced for one of the best movies ever made.

5-0 out of 5 stars my "trapped on a desert island" cd
There's so much to love about this soundtrack. It's dark, but it also has its tender parts, like the movie did. The cure starts the cd with "Burn", a tortured, haunting, strange kind of love song befitting of Robert Smith on a bad day. The Machines of Loving Grace come next with a breathy, sinister vocals and minimal guitar. Stone Temple Pilots' Big Empty is reflective and powerful, and is one of STP's easier songs to sing along with, as you'll no doubt be doing. Nine Inch Nails' cover of Deads Souls is up to true Trent Reznor form, screaming about torment, in the beautiful way. Rage Against the Machine, Rollins Band, Helmet, Pantera, and My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult add acid to the mix while the Violent Femmes, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Medicine, and Jane Siberry mellow it for just the right amount of contrast. Perfecto.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack to a great movie
I recently watched "The Crow" on the Sundance Channel and although I knew about the movie I had never really seen it. I really liked the movie and ordered the soundtrack. I admired the tragic story esp. with the death of Brandon Lee in the making and the stylish filmaking, but there was something special about the movie and the soundtrack really takes you back to the movie. The soundtrack rocks and I am so glad I got it. Even without the movie this collection of early 90's rock really stands out. ... Read more
