5-0 out of 5 stars Stuff 'n' movie gags
This is one of the best cds ever recorded!!!! If you wanna look at some gags from the film go to: for this film is http.mksecrets.com/mktm/eng/mktm-moviemistakes.htm and for MKAnnihilation go to http.mksecrets.com/mkannihilation/eng/mkannihilation-moviemistakes.htm

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Music for Working Out.
I loved the movie and I have 4 out of the 5 available CD's.I've never played the game since I don't own a Playstation or an x-box (gasp)but the soundtracks are great.My favourite tracks are Utah Saints on the theme from Mk and The immortals mix.I often listen to the cd's while I'm working out....and it makes me really work up a sweat.So go ahead and buy....I don't think you'll regret it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Headbangers And Aerobics Instructors Unite!
The perfect blend of techno, nu metal, hard rock, and dance music, "Mortal Kombat" is a soundtrack that covers many bases.First of all, we are given some nice techno/workout music from groups like Gravity Kills, KMFDM and the Utah Saints.The best songs of the first part of this album are "Goodbye" and "Jukeboint Jezebel."The second half of this album gives us a dose of Type O Negative's "Blood & Fire" and Sister Machine Gun's "Burn."Then, everything is wrapped up nicely with some George S. Clinton and the sounds of the Immortals.

There isn't much to say about this album other than the fact that there are some really good songs to do aerobics to and then, once you've warmed up a bit, you can headbang on through the night.

If you're into techno music or enjoyed the music of recent soundtracks such as any of the "Blade" flicks or "Resident Evil," you're sure to like this collection. ... Read more

Editorial Review

If you're going to pitch a movie about cyber-revolutionaries to plugged-in audiences, you'd best mind your MP3s and BPMs when choosing soundtrack selections. The cynical wireheads who flock to such high-tech conspiracy flicks as Brazil and Hackers are thrillseekers of the highest caliber, and The Matrix soundtrack meets this challenge faster than a speeding cyborg. The opener, Marilyn Manson's anti-consumerism rant "Rock Is Dead," paints an aural portrait of urban decay. Ominous sirens permeate the Propellerheads' drum 'n' bass track "Spybreak!"; mournful piano alternates with hard shiny beats on Rob D's "Clubbed to Death"; and Meat Beat Manifesto fills "Prime Audio Soup" with enough bleeps to make one imagine being trapped inside a motherboard in Hell. It may sound dismal, but the friction permeating this compilation of techno, grindcore, and heavy metal is energizing enough to make fans of these genres feel the same unity as a clandestine community of hackers. --Kristy Ojala ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Could be better
Ministry's "Bad Blood" is the best song on the whole album. But could have added some techno like, Orbital, Aphex Twin, Chemical Brothers, And Fatboy Slim.



They should have added "Come to Daddy (pappy mix)" to the album. Or maybe "Head Like a Hole"

5-0 out of 5 stars frenetic and pulsing electro-metal that matters
this stuff rules because it flows extremely well, and represents the tone and attitude of the movie really well.This was actually the first cd I ever got, back in middle school I was introduced to the greatness of Rammstein, Deftones, Prodigy, and Rage Against the Machine through this cd.I highly recommend this to anyone who likedthe movie or likes kick butt electronica metal.This is a cd that will always be around in my collection for repeat listens.

Editorial Review

The Blade soundtrack matches up with expectations for the film pretty well: there are a few artists who have done some consistently good work, most of whom seem to be slumming it here (KRS-One, Gang Starr); there are a couple trying to change their image and prove that they can be relevant in another context (New Order); there's a completely unexpected appearance by someone you'd completely forgotten about (Mantronik); and there are plenty of forgettable turns by wannabes, could-bes, and should-bes (Mystikal, Kasino, P.A.). The album finally picks up toward the end, with Mantronik's club-hopping EPMD remix, New Order's techno turn, Expansion Union's dance track, and DJ Krush's lounge vibe. --Randy Silver ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Did you read the CD Before you bought it?
Everyone who rated this album poorly clearly state they aren't into Rap or Hip-Hop. That's fine, but did they read the back of the CD to see who was on it? If you didn't know that Mystikal was rap and not techno then you shouldn't have rushed out to the store and bought the cd.

It is Inspired by the movie, with Wesley Snipes' oversight.
Some tracks, such as Gangsta Bounce, are so fabulous you'll be very disappointed when you can't find anything else by them.
With vocals about the supernatural, good vs evil, and fat beats, you can't go wrong.

With the addicting New Order's song Confusion also on the track waiting to get you hooked, to Junkie XL, this is one album that's truely Dealing with the Roster, with style.

The cd can appeal to those of us who have a wider variety of taste instead of "just" Techno or "just" rap.

5-0 out of 5 stars From the wonderful thoughts of The one and only, Music Tyke
Yo, I like the tracks. I mean, yeah, some of what I WANTED wasn't on the CD but I'm one of the go getters who doesn't mind searching for what I want. I like the CD for what it is. It is a rather well compiled cd of Techno and Rap. Not a lot of people could have pulled that off. My favorite tracks are 4, 6, 7, and 11-15. I especially love Tracks 12 and 14. Very nice. All of you that want to dis, thats fine. You feel you wasted your money, ha, well next time, go to amazon and sample the songs before you buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad stuff.
Rap. That's what you will get out of this soundtrack. Unfortunately I wasted my money, not only on this CD, but the Blade II CD as well! Take it from me folks, if you don't like rap, don't buy this! It is total junk! Considering the movie was very good, the soundtrack is absolutely AWFUL!!!!!!!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Everything about crypt crawler Lara Croft is fake: her boobs, her archaeological background, her identity. The ass-kickin' chick is a game boy's dream come to life, so it's fitting that the video hottie should get an equally synthetic soundtrack in time for her big-screen debut. U2 reel out the album's strongest track, a glossy remix of "Elevation" that skids all over glam-rock terrain and is just sexy enough to make it work as a single (as well as a scene-stealing video featuring Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie). Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor works himself into a fit on the grinding "Deep," but his tirade sounds outdated with its dumb lyrics and clunky, hookless programming. Speaking of computer blues, Groove Armada's wordless snoozer "Edge Hill" is about as far from shakin' that ass as a dance act can get. Thankfully, club reliables like the Chemical Brothers and Moby can still get it done; the former brings out the funk with a writhing dance tune that's as tireless as the film's heroine, while the latter's fuzzed-out big beats explode into a giddy freak-out that helps tighten up the album's blah midsection. Oddly, the only ladies in the house, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliot and young 'un Nelly Furtado, are the ones who get Lara Croft's modus operandi right; no matter how perfect she may be, she still needs to get her freak on. --Kristy Martin ...

5-0 out of 5 stars My two cents
Great soundtrack overall and individually. I think you all need to just stop being so picky about music. Who cares if it sounds the same as a song on a previous album? A good song is a good song. Get over it. :)

1. U2 - Elevation: Instant classic. Great song, will stay in your head for weeks and make you think you can sing.
2. Nine Inch Nails - Deep: A good song. Very deep lyrics, if you forgive the pun.
3. The Chemical Brothers - Galaxy Bounce: What's there to say? A great song, catchy and carrying.
4. Missy Elliot ft. Nelly Futado - Get Ur Freak on: Not a bad song in any way. It's a rap song that I can actually stand, which is saying alot. A nice new kind of voice adds to the song.
5. Outkast - Speedballin': Again, a rap song I can stand. Good beat and sound to it.
6. Moby - Ain't Never Learned: Moby never fails to deliver, and this is no exception. Flowing, changing, and with great substance.
7. BT - The Revolution: A bit of an odd experience, like listening to a preacher during a rave party. It ends up working together somehow, making a good song.
8. Delerium ft Aude - Terra Firma(Lara's Mix): Very, very good song. It definately has Lara's personality, you can just picture yourself in the back of her mansion watching her run the course and shoot the butler.
9. Basement Jaxx - Where's Your Head At: One line is all it takes. Good song, the returning melody of the main line pulls the beat together around the verse in an energizing away.
10. Fatboy Slim ft Bootsy Collins - Illuminati: Nice song, good guitaring. Could do without the woozy-sounding guy and his improper grammar, but it kind of adds to it.
11. Fluke - Absurd(Whitewash Edit): Look up the lyrics for this song sometime. I did, and almost spilled a TV dinner over myself. This song is great, innovative and sounds good.
12. Leftfield - Song of Life: Good combination of soft and tech here, overall good song.
13. Groove Armada - Edge Hill: This song is definately feelin' the groove thing. Relaxing or energizing depending on how you want it, an anytime song.
14. Bosco - Satellite: Words cannot express my love for this song. The melody and beat and everything is really good, but what really makes it for me is the vocals. Definately a must-hear.
15. Oxide & Neutrino - Devil's Nightmare: Nice variety in this song. It definately takes you through the storyline of the Tomb Raider movie, and makes a good ender.

1-0 out of 5 stars for the collectors
my review is written here only for seekers of obscure nine inch nails songs. for a full review of the soundtrack in its entirety read elsewhere-there are many other reviews.
i have all 19 halos, and exclusive and unreleased remixes and demos, and i love all of it, including the entirety of the fragile, fixed, perfect drug versions, still, further down the spiral v1 and v2, the deluxe edition of the downward spiral, on and on, everything....
except deep.
deep is truly the only nine inch nails song not worth having.
painfully uninspired and recycled, musically, lyrically, and visually (the video was an embarassment- again, the only one in a catalogue of otherwise disturbing, beautiful brilliance), DEEP is a song and phase trent himself has admitted to wishing to forget entirely.
my advice: take it as a mark that he is, after all, human, but leave it here on the tomb raider soundtrack, unpaid for, for it will never show up on an official halo as burn (originally for natural born killers), dead souls (joy division cover originally for the crow), and the perfect drug (originally for lost highway) all have in time (the former two on halo 8 DE and the latter on halos 11, 12, and 15 in extended form).

2-0 out of 5 stars Not very good
1.Good, the best here. 5/5
2.Meh-too weirdishly rocky/punky/technoey. (2/5)
3.Same as #2.
4..........wtf is this? Nelly Furtado's attempts at rapping are embarrassing and painful to the eardrums. God, she sounds SO weird. Leave the rapping to the rappers, honey. I swear to God....when will this girl go away? She's a one-hit wonder, just like Natalie Imbruglia. If they had used the original with just Missy, it would have been great. But with Furtado's fumbling raps, this track just makes me laugh. (0/5)
5.It starts out excellent, but then gets a little too frenzied. (4/5)
6.O.......kay. (2/5)
7.Not too bad. Sorta fun. *shrug* (3/5)
8.O_o very very weird. It sounds like a bunch of priests chanting. (0/5)
The rest of it is well just average. Way too much grunge rock and techno fizzles. This soundtrack has two good songs, a large handful of horrible songs and a few so-so ones.

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 The suitable soundtrack
The Crow is my favorite movie of all time, hands down.The moving love/death/life/revenge plot coupled with Brandon Lee's exceptional performance and very talented supporting cast is more than enough than for The Crow to stand the test of time.However, probably the strongest point of the movie lies in its truly awesome soundtrack that captures the mood of the movie perfectly.

As great as the movie is, the soundtrack almost matches its caliber just by itself.A great compilation of independent, some unreleased, alt-rock tracks that add another dimension to the movie.Tracks like "Burn" from The Cure, "Big Empty" from the Stone Temple Pilots, "Color Me Once" from the Violent Femmes, the sentimental "It Can't Rain All the Time" from Jane Siberry, and my favorite, "Slip Slide Melting" performed by For Love Not Lisa.

Truly, a great movie will have a great soundtrack, and The Crow's amazing collection of songs make it one of the best of all time.

5-0 out of 5 stars i cant speak!
words cannot describe how this movie and music has touched my life. when i first heard about lees death i was shocked but coming to the realization that i might not see him in any more films came to this one. the soundtrack is purified to the brink of being probably the greatest soundtrack ever its has to intertwine with the movie and this does. raw voltage of energy and hard metal is the reason why this is a success. the cure , henry rollins rage and stp have made this album feel like your in the movie a great array of music combining with melody at the end.
everyone should own this album a great tribute to brandon lee and the movie thats spawn it a cult classic.

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the best
this collaboration set the mood for the crow perfectly. each and every one of the crow soundtracks are good in their own, but this one takes the lead. i love nine inch nails and dead souls (track 4) is one of their best. golatha tenement blues was a great song from a band i have never heard of called machines of loving grace (track 2). ghost rider is a decent song from the rollins band (track 7). after the flesh from my life with the thrill kill kult (track 11) sounds like something ministry did. over all great soundtrack. ...

Editorial Review

An album even the technophobic couldn't ignore, The Fat of the Land made Prodigy one of the first U.K. rave acts to infiltrate pop culture. Hard-core hip-hop-derived breakbeats, layers of unabashed (but creative) sampling, and meaningless shouted lyrics struck a chord beyond the electronic-music community. The inclusion of "Firestarter" and "Breathe" (both previously released hit singles) certainly aided the disc's widespread success, but it was the ferocity (and controversy) of "Smack My Bitch Up" that caught the world's attention. Guest Shahin Bada's Indian vocalizations convey the sense that dance music has come a long way from "Pump Up the Volume"! "Diesel Power," featuring Kool Keith, and "Funky Shit" set a wicked groove; the cover of L7's "Fuel My Fire" recalls the energy of the Sex Pistols. In fact, the dark aggression of The Fat of the Land bears closer resemblance to both rap and punk than the hedonism of techno. Leader Liam Howett simply gives up 10 solid songs with bombastic production values, transforming dance music into the art of noise. --Lisa Ladouceur ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best dance album ever!
This has to be one the best albums I have ever listened to, the thing that makes this album stand out from most other dance albums, is that The Prodigy have drawn back on a variety of influences including Hip-Hop, Rock and Punk. Listening to this album just makes you want to get up and move, there is not one weak song on this album, each song has its own unique essence whilst still maintaining the aggressive, upbeat, energy which the album is all about. My personal favorites are Smack my Bitch up, the vocal solo just leads you into a trance, Breathe this is a typical Prodigy song, with heavy beats, aggressive chords and vocals from Keith Flint and Fuel My Fire, which is very different and has a great punk edge to it, I just love the opening drums to this song. I can't speak highly enough of this album, if your looking for an album full of energy and excitement, then I highly recommend this album, even if your a rock fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars Firestarter
may i point out two things...actually three...
1. firestarter is very catchythat is if you're into this kind of music.
2.it was also used in Charlie's angels full throttle...but it was not on the soundtrack...bummer...and #3 this particular song (if you wanted to know) was the main tune used in Wipeout XL for Paystation and nintendo 64. and to close on a final note, i have yet to hear the rest of the album...but i tink it is absolutely 4 star material.

The addition of hardcore/thrash metal guitar god Gizz Butt proved the best idea this dance band ever had,creating a dense (dance ?) and heavy music plagued with killer,hypnotic heavy riffs even an old harcore punker like me (43) can relate to.Everything about this record,the drummining,the synth loops,the bass playing,transpires sheer agression giving you the adrenalin rush of your life !!!

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.

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

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 ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Grab-bag with select highlights
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

5-0 out of 5 stars This CD is EXELLENT
This CD I really love.I wanna say that I was the first to get this CD because I was able to get this CD before the movie came out in the theaters.The new and improved version of the Mortal Kombat theme was a lot better than I expected.It has many techno tracks that are well put together.The Lunatic Calm track is very nice as well.Even there's a rock song "Brutality" which is a nice touch to the album.I have all 5 CD's from the MK score to this CD.If you like MK,techno,and the video games...GET THIS CD

5-0 out of 5 stars Way Better Than The First!
This might just be the best soundtrack ever made.The Main Theme is absolutely fantastic! It's definatly better than the first one, it's faster, and really dancey.The 2nd song, "Fire" is also tons of fun. And then the 3rd one is fantastic! Oh gosh, what am I saying? Every single song on here is better than the last!With the exception of the Kill Bill: Volume 1 soundtrack, I don't think there's one finer.Even if you think you aren't into the Techno/Industrial type music, give it a shot.I've had a lot of my friends listen to it, and I've yet to have one say, "oh my gosh, what is that CRAP?" most of them ask if they can borrow it!I've recorded it off to tape for so many people I've lost count!

4-0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER GREAT SOUNDTRACK
LIKE THE SOUNDTRACK FOR THE MOVIE THAT CAME BEFORE IT, IT OUTSHINES ITS MOVIE. THIS TIME AROUND, THERE'S A LITTLE LESS ROCK AND A LITTLE MORE TECHNO, BUT IT'S STILL A HIGHLY ENTERTAINING CD NONETHELESS. THE ONLY DISSAPOINTING SONG IS THE REMIX FOR THE MK THEME, WHICH IS THE VERY FIRST TRACK ON THIS CD. AMONG THE HIGHLIGHTS ARE KMFDM'S ''MEGALOMANIAC'', PITCHSHIFTER'S ''GENIUS'', CIRRUS' ''BACK ON A MISSION'', URBAN VOODOO'S ''BRUTALITY'', AND THE REMIX TO FACE TO FACE'S ''I WON'T LIE DOWN''. IT'S FUN TO LISTEN TO AND IT REALLY HAS GOOD MUSIC. TOO BAD THE MOVIE FOR THIS CD TURNED OUT TO BE A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT ... Read more

Editorial Review

The rap-rock-electronic collaboration has become a mainstay of the industry. Yet as cool as it is to hook up artists from disparate genres, sometimes these fusions look better on paper than they actually sound. Not so this project, which finds A-list rappers (Busta Rhymes, Bubba Sparxx, Rah-Digga, et al.) joining forces with topnotch electronica heavyweights like Crystal Method and Roni Size. There's much to dig here, but there are a few glaring missteps. Witness "Cowboy," in which the flamboyance of Fat Boy Slim's rubbery funk only underscores Eve's lyrical weaknesses. Also iffy is "Getting Aggressive," which reduces Mystikal to background noise underneath Moby's intrusive onslaught of rhythm. Better balance is found on Mos Def and Massive Attack's intense cover of Bad Brains' "I Against I"; a ghetto-fab but gritty partnership between Jadakiss, Fabolous, and Danny Saber; and Gorillaz and Redman's giddy "Gorillaz on My Mind." Credit everyone involved for delivering a soundtrack album that is much more than tie-in product. --Amy Linden ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars RE: Missing Track
The club scene song is actually Voodoo and Serano's Blood is Pumpin'. You may be right about the fight scene, but that is the name of the song for the club scene. They have their own disk which is really good, I own it:) And you can find Blood is Pumpin' on a number of compulations as well. I hope this is helpful to anyone that likes that song as much as I do although I knew about the song before it was in Blade 2.

2-0 out of 5 stars The missing track
Like other reviewers I liked a lot of the music from the film.but having listened to samples of the album I couldn't find that one stunning track that was used in the film (night club or fight scene ?).So I didn't buy it :(

Have since found the track though, it's called Clubbed to Death by Rob Duggan - Fantastic. :)

2-0 out of 5 stars I own it, but not a huge fan
Like most, i was looking for the more electronic side, and most the music on the album has nothing to do with the movie. Everyone wants to know the song from the club scene, but im curious as to what the song from the big fight scene is? any help? ... Read more

Editorial Review

This is quite an impressive list of today's modern rock heroes. Limp Bizkit incorporate a sci-fi space groove into their patented rap-metal and deliver the Mission: Impossible 2 theme, "Take a Look Around." Former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell contributes the Led Zeppelin-influenced "Mission 2000." Pink Floyd's 1975 anti-record industry classic "Have a Cigar" is replicated and then augmented with hard-rock screams and heavy-metal guitars by the Foo Fighters and former Queen guitarist Brian May. Tori Amos's atmospheric "Carnival" nicely complements the straightforward hard rock of Buckcherry. Powderfinger's "Not My Kinda Scene" captures a lazy desert vibe, while Biff Butler navigates the generic industrial-metal wasteland with his band, Apartment 26. For over-the-top mayhem, Rob Zombie's got the market cornered with the sonically impressive "Scum of the Earth." And there's even the rarely-heard-from-these-days Butthole Surfers coming back with the restrained (for them) "They Came In." --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The mission was half possible
I got this CD because I wanted to figure out what kind of music I wanted to listen to, and basically discover more bands.I got this when I was in 7th grade I believe so that makes sense.Well what I got here was a mixed batch.Half good music, half crap.Most of the great music lies in the first half of the CD.Now I shall go into the classic breakdown of the record.What I noticed though was that barely any music from here was played in the movie at all (except the Limp Bizkit song)

1. Take a look around by Limp Bizkit: 7/10 In all honesty Limp Bizkit suck, and this song was played constantly throughout the movie, (which bored me bay the way) but this is definitely one of "Da Bizkit's" better songs.
2. I Disappear by Metallica: 9/10 A good song released by Metallica before they released St. Anguish.
3. Scum of the earth by Rob Zombie: 9/10 Great Rob Zombie song, but get his album instead.
4. They Came in by Butthole Surfers: 10/10 This is the song that really got me into the BHS, Now one of my favorite bands of all time, this song is the only song released from their Unreleased Album After the Astronaut so its quite nice to have it as a gem.
5. Rocket Science by the Pimps:8/10 A nice, cool song, but technically nothing special.
6. Have a Cigar by Foo Fighters and Brian May: 8/10A nice Pink Floyd cover
7. Mission 2000 by Chris Cornell: 5/10 I can tolerate this
8. Going Down by Godsmack: 10/10 GREAT!!!!!!
9. What U Lookin' At? By Uncle Kracker (produced by Kid Rock): 0/10 WOW BOTH THESE GUYS SUCK!Why they throw Rock's Name on there is simply for eye candy and it doesn't matter, Uncle Kracker is much like a one hit wonder.
10. Backwards by Apartment 26: 10/10 This song introduced me to Apt. 26 and they rocked.Their Hallucinating CD absolutely Rocked (Unfortunately they seemed to have broken up).
11. Karma by Diffuser: 7/10 it's a fun song but nothing more.

Tracks 12-16 I don't care to talk about or even title them because they are all 0/10!

So there you go.Normally this should earn a 2 star rating but I have to respect it because otherwise I would have never found out about Apartment 26 or been convinced to listen to more Butthole Surfers.Now as for you buying this record, I would suggest just going out and buying the CDs of the bands you like that are on here.If you are looking for a place to start in the world of music like I did, then I would avoid this as it is a mixed bag and no one here seems to like ALL the songs.Hope this helped.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not the bestMOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.
O.K. I bought this album about four years ago. To be honest, I don't like this one that much, to be honest, I don't like any MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK at all. I've got two soundtracks: this one and "BATMAN & ROBIN". After I bought both of them, I decided to stay away from these motion picture soundtracks.
The only good songs on this album are the first three and a couple more, don't worry 'cause I'll state them, the rest of them are pure garbage:

1.- "Limp Bizkit: Take A Look Around (Theme from "M:I-2)".- I think for everyone, this one is the best on this album. I'm not that much of a LIMP BIZKIT fan, but I like a couple of songs from them. But if you want to listen to this one, then I suggest you buy the album "CHOCLATE STARFISH AND THE HOT DOG FLAVORED WATER", that album is way better than this one and it includes on of their best dongs ever including this one.- 4/5.

2.- "Metallica: I Dissapear".- The other great song on this album, not that great, but one of the best.- 4/5.

3.- "Rob Zombie: Scum Of The Earth".- For me, the hardest rock song on this album. Better than "I Dissapear". I like this band more than LIMP BIZKIT. But if you want to listen to this one buy their album "The Sinister Urge". It is way better than this album.- 5/5.

4.- "Butthole Surfers: They Came In".- This song SUCKS.- 0/5.

5.- "The Pimps: Rocket Science".- O.K. Not as bad as others, but I don't like this one that much.- 3/5.

6.- "Foo Fighters and Brian May: Have A Cigar".- I don't like this one at all. Baaad.- 1/5.

7.- "Chris Cornell: Mission 2000".- This one sucks big time. One of the worst.- 0/5.

8.- "Godsmack: Going Down".- Not as bad as others either, but still I don't like it.- 2/5.

9.- "Uncle Kracker produced by Kid Rock: What U Lookin' At".- Probably this one is better than "I Dissapear"...but...I don't know.- 5/5.

10.- "Apartment 26: Backwards".- Another one that SUCKS. Damn. This album kinda sucks too.- 0/5.

11.- "Diffuser: Karma".- Good. Doesn't suck that much as others.- 3/5.

12.- "Buckcherry: Alone".- Don't like it at all.- 1/10.

13.- "Tinfed: Immune".- Another one I don't like.- 2/5.

14.- "Powderfinger: My Kinda Scene".- The best in this album. I love this one. Finally.- 5/5.

15.- "Tori Amus: Carnival".- SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS.- 0/5.

16.- "Hans Zimmer featuring Heitor Pereira: Nyah".- Bit of a Mexican song. I like it.- 4/5.


See. This soundtrack SUCKS. Now...speaking about the movie...I went to the movies to watch this one, it was full of action and smart scenes. I give the movie: 7/10. But the first one was...WOW...I loved it even though I had eight or nine years when I watched it, I understood it perfectly. The scenes are truly very smart, it has a great content and story, great dialogue and enough action, for me. I know it is abvious tha the second movie has alot more action and chases, but I liked the first better. I give Misson: Impossible a 10/10. I loved that one.
Remember...don't buy this crap, you would be doin' a very very big mistake like I did, if you only want this album because of the theme song from LIMP BIZKIT, buy the album CHOCOLATE STARFISH AND THE HOT DOG FLAVORED WATER instead, that album is way better than this one. If you only want this album because of ROB ZOMBIES's "Scum Of The Earth", which I love by the way, then buy the album: "The Sinister Urge". But whatever you do:


DO NOT BUY THIS ALBUM!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars The soundtrack is better than the movie
I wasent a huge fan of the movie M:I-2, but the soundtrack is good. There are some great bands on here, including Rob Zombie, Metallica, Foo Fighters, Buckcherry, etc. There are even some non mainstream bands on here like The Pimps and Butthole Surfers(whens the last time you heard about em? Years ago?). Its overall a good soundtack, and even the Limp Bizkit song is decent. Not every song is great, but thankfully most of them are and there isnt really anything on here that is horrible. Some tracks are only found on this soundtrack too(like Metallica's 'I Dissapear'). This is a good soundtrack thats better than the movie. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars I only bought it for the Rancid track.
I only really picked this cd up because it was cheap and had rancid on it and glad i only payed a few bucks for it.Its made as a Live show in south park with chef being the Host.I only really like 3 of the tracks on here Rancids brad logan,Mase/puffy/lil kim and SOAD and Ozzy.ODB and DMX.The rest of the tracks are just random artists (Master P,Elton john,meat loaf,joe strummer and a few other celebrities) probably only worth buying if you are a big south park fan or if you have spare change.

5-0 out of 5 stars Kick A$$, dude!
The SouthPark album is very good, running at a wopping 1H17M, it's crammbed full of songs. There are maybe 3 songs I don't really like, but all the others range from pretty good to great. "Huboon Stomp" by Devo is a really good song, as well as "Nowhere to Run" performed by Ozzy, DMX, and Ol' Dirty Bastard with music by Crystal Method with Fuzzbubble, which is a pretty awesome tune. "Brad Logan" by Rancid is awesome, and "Hot Lava" performed by Perry Farrell and D.V.D.A. is, in my opinion, the best song on the album.So, awesome album, if you're a fan of SouthPark take a look and see what you think, it's quite worth it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Funny as hell!
From Cartman's sailing away, to Chef's Salty Balls, to Wyclef Jean & the kid's Bubble goose, all tracks are awsome... Any South Park fan would laugh thier @$$es off just like I did at this CD, I wish they would keep making funny CD's like theese. ... Read more

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

Befitting the film's hip goth vibe, its accompanying soundtrack is suitably dark and sexy, with a strong mix of new songs and nü-metal hits. In an interesting move, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis collaborated with composer (and former Oingo Boingo keyboardist) Richard Gibbs on 5 of the CD's 14 tracks, though Davis doesn't sing his songs. Instead, taking those duties are Static-X's Wayne Static on "Not Meant for Me," Disturbed's David Draiman on "Forsaken," Linkin Park's Chester Bennington on "System," Marilyn Manson on "Redeemer," and Orgy's Jay Gordon on "Slept So Long." Most of the Davis-Gibbs collaborations are akin to more atmospheric, dramatic Korn tunes, lent a distinctive personality by each singer, with Manson's being the creepiest-coolest and most aggressive entry. While these adroit alliances make the soundtrack a must-have for each of the band's fans (not to mention the Korn faithful), the previously released cuts are also winners. Deftones' creepy "Change," Papa Roach's angry "Dead Cell," and Disturbed's memorable rage "Down with the Sickness"--in addition to lesser-known, but sinister and titillating offerings from Godhead, Kidney Thieves, Earshot, Tricky, and others--are all worth the price of admission to this "damned" stellar soundtrack. --Katherine Turman ...

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best soundtracks (4 1/2 stars)
i agree, the movie pretty much sucked (though stuart was very good), but i think the soundtrack makes up for it. The best songs on this cd are the following:
Forsaken,(wow)
System(i honestly think chester's voice is MUCH better here than in LP despite what other people say)
change(so0o0 sexy)
Down With the Sickness(though his ranting is seriously hilarious)
Before i'm dead (i love the kidneythieves)

The OK ones:
Not meant for me(eh, his voice could be better. jon does it better)
Slept So Long ( his voice is sort of annoying. again, jon does it better)
Redeemer ( i HATE manson doing it, jon's version would make this a favorite)

The sucky ones:
Dead Cell (i hate papa roach)
Penetrate(annoying)
Cold( wow... how boring lyrically and musically)
Headstrong ( eh...)
Body crumbles (eww)
Excess( eh...)

4-0 out of 5 stars Introduction to nu-metal
The movie was horrendous, but I fell in love with the cathartic voice of jonathan Davis and decided to purchase this cd...only to discover that he's not on it!!! So I bought `untouchables' and never looked back...until I was browsing amazon and decided to throw my caution to the wind and try to appreciate the artists that took his place. Here is my low-down on the tracks:

Not Meant for me- hmm...okay, Wayne of static-X, you can't sing period. Jon was sooooo much better...ahhhh!!!

Forsaken- As much as I enjoy the voice of David Draiman, he just can compare to the original heartfelt wailings. Oh well, he sounds great on his debut cd, `The Sickness'. I really enjoy most of the tracks, they remind me of bondage games.

System- I'm not a linkin park fan as I can't stand rap and rock together but I didn't think Chester Bennigtons voice was that bad...until I heard this! He sounds terrible, been straining the vocal cords much? I played this song to a huge linkin park fan and even he was embarrassed by this weak performance.

Change- Great song, got me onto to deftones. Buy white Pony, its sensational.

Redeemer-Well done Marilyn Manson! You're the only one that has managed to do these songs any justice. I love you...

Dead Cell- Ahh papa roach...your song stinks, don't mix rock and rap com-padre!!!

Penetrate- The lyrics to this interesting song by, umm, Godhead are as stupid as the bands name. I like the song though, who knew!

Slept So Long- Okay jay Gordon you might have a nice voice and I am sure your 80's sounding band Orgy goes with this kind of singing but show some emotion man! Jesus your supposed to be a miserable vampire forced to walk alone for all eternity! Where's Jon when you need him?

Down with the Sickness- I like you Draimen I really do, but when I heard the ranting I cringed in embarrassment, which turned into rolling off my bus seat with laughter. It wasn't fair, was it baby.

Cold- snore...

Headstrong- Hey its Maynard James Keenan from tool, why the devil did he...Oh no, sorry its his imitation band, Earshot. Original name...

Body Crumbles- Atrocious song by dry cell.
Excess- Not a bad beat but the lyrics are laughably bad

Before I'm Dead- Great song by the kidney thieves. I must get round to purchasing their album.

Anywhoo! That's my opinion of the tracks. To be honest instead of this cd, I recommend purchasing in its stead: `The sickness' by Disturbed (don't buy `Believe' unless you're down in Christian whack), `Mechanical Animals' & `Antichrist Superstar' by Marilyn Manson. `White Pony'-Deftones, `Mer de noms' by A perfect circle, with songs sung by the lovely voice of Maynard (give it up Earshot) and anything by Korn, though `issues' is the style which he uses in the movie. But ya know, don't let me bias your opinions. Buy this cd as an introduction to nu-metal, if you are unfamiliar with this genre. It may help you define your tastes and introduce you to some great bands. I hope you found my review helpful or at least...mildly entertaining.


5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!
This album is totally impressive. I love the film and the music in it absolutely captivated me, so I got it.

1. 'Not Meant For Me' - this is one of the songs that Lestat performs at his concert, the second one. It is really powerful and the vocals are impressive. 4/5
2. 'Forsaken' - this is really really good. I love the music in it, and the lyrics are very well written. 5/5
3. 'System' - it's nice to hear Chester Bennington away from Linkin Park and the rapping. He carries this off really well and is played during the club scene where Akasha attacks. 5/5
4. 'Change (in the house of flies)' - one of the best songs on the album. It gives me goosebumps, and the vocalist has a beautiful sound. Interesting lyrics though.. 5/5
5. 'Redeemer' - Manson is the man! He brings a so-so song to life with brilliant vocals and a modern sound. 4/5
6. 'Dead Cell' - this is during the scene where Jesse is trying to get a chance to see Lestat. It's pretty good for Papa Roach, but not the best song on the soundtrack. 4/5
7. 'Penetrate' - I don't really like the verses of this song, but the chorus is really catchy. 3/5
8. 'Slept So Long' - this is the first song that Lestat sings in the concert scene. It's definitely the better of the two. 5/5
9. 'Down With The Sickness' - Disturbed at their finest, this song is a masterpiece, and when it plays at my favourite club The Cathouse, everyone goes mental. 5/5
10. 'Cold' - I'd never heard Static-X before, but this song is one of my favourites. 5/5
11. 'Body Crumbles' - this song is really cool. 5/5
12. 'Excess' - most people don't like this, but I think it's really good, with an interesting sound. Is Alanis Morrisette doing backing vocals, or am I just hearing things? 5/5
13. 'Before I'm Dead' - this song introduced me to a brilliant band. This is an AMAZING song, one of the main reasons I got the album in the first place! It sends shivers down my spine it's so good. 5/5

BUY THIS ALBUM DAMMIT! :P ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great childhood memories
Anyone in the 19-24 age group will definitely remember a time when you couldn't walk down the Middle School/High school without at least seeing someone wearing an Asto Creep 2000 t-shirt with one of Rob Zombie's twisted artwork on it...It almost brings a tear to my eye remembering the days of memories past.

White Zombie had everything going for them. They were a band that pretty much threw the whole Horror Movie/50's Dragster magazine/tattoo-parlor-come-to-life image in everyone's face, and guess what? Everyone loved it! "More Human than Human" did not help drive "Astro Creep:2000" to double platinum status (I'm pretty sure it's gone at least triple since then) all on its own. White Zombie was just a kooky camp of kids that lived for cheap thrills, horror movies(you're going to hear a lot of this in the review), and whatnots. Their music was a genius combo of Sludge Metal, Doom, some semi-Thrash influences with a flavor of Disco's up-beat Pop sensibilities. Add into the factor of the most brilliant(and sometimes heavy) usage of Sci-Fi and Horror movie audio samples and you definitely have a new Frankenstein-like monster brings a new definition to the saying 'WHAM! BAM! Thank-you mam!'

Rob Zombie was at the top of his game as far as writing lyrics and arranging the music to fit his voice(he lost this with his sub-par solo material, which disappointed me as a long-time WZ fan). He knows his limits and doesn't see the usage to over-step those boundaries. Next to Rob's genius is bassist Sean Yseult. Any male fan of White Zombie knows how much of a mythical goddess Sean Yseult, golden curly locks and all, was in our early days of puberty, but none the less a rather excellent bassist and laying down a thick wall of extra 'crunch' to WZ's sound. Drummer John Tempesta(of ex-Testament fame for us Metal heads) and guitarist Jay Noel Yuenger also in turn throw in their bit of the help in helping "Astro Creep:2000" become one helluva album. Must I not forget the Horror/Sci-Fi movie samples? If I did I would be missing-out on a huge part of "AC2K". The samples were just brilliant in giving is that fun edges to it, in that you can easily take this as a good party album and nobody would notice the difference.

"Astro Creep:2000"'s track list is like a Halloween mixed bag of treats for us. Few of them the average music fan knows, or has heard on the radio, the instant classic that is adored by everyone. Some are our personal favorites, and then there are the couples that stick-out but later grow on us over time.

1. Electric Head Prt.1 (The Agony) - Starts out with a warped old movie sample, going into some reverse organ piano playing and then some doomy-sounds before hitting that main sludge-like verse riff that just gets you into the head banging spirit.

2. Super-Charger Heaven - OH YES! This is definitely a Hot Rod racing anthem. I can just imagine racing a rust-covered, Army olive green 69' GTO with 450 HP engine, pumping-out green flames from the exhaust. Definitely faster in the sense of adding a dash of 50's Rockabilly tones to it. The little Latin rite of excommunication-sample before the last verse is a little tweak that will have you screaming "Devil Man running in my head!" all day long.

3. Real Solution #9 - "And I remember her saying I'm already dead!" Ooooooo! How creepy! Definitely laying-down the mood for this track in a slowed down mid-tempo song. It's almost on automatic and the lyric "Who will survive and what will be left of them?" taken from the infamous Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie poster.

4. Creature of the Wheel - Ugh! Sludge, and more sludge! More or less a continuation of "Real Solution #9" but even ten times more heavily. Adding even more weirdness is another scary Hellfire & Brimstone preaching sample that has 'And oh brothers and sisters, I ask you to look at him.' There's also some weird orchestration noise in the background, but that may be due to guitar feedback.

5. Electric Head Pt. 2 (The Ecstasy) - "I just said 'Up yours baby". With an intro like that, it brings up into the stomp-heavy riff fest of the second part of the 'Electric Head' duo. Not as fast as the first, but still does the job in making one want to head bang.

6. Grease Paint And Monkey Brains - Oh man. I don't care what was creepier before this song, but that twisted Circus carnival noise just does it for me. Nothing is as scary sounding as Carnival noise. This one is a snoozer with Rob's whispering

7. I Zombie - Starts off with a church choir quickly turned into horrifying female screaming then BAM! Downward-spiraling chainsaw guitars and Rob's voice even more downward descending. A great wake-up after the snooze-fest of 'Grease Paint and Monkey Brains'

8. More Human Than Human - As I said previously "Astro Creep:2000" did not exactly go double-platinum on its own. The infamous MTV Buzz Clip(god I'm really showing my age now) helped make this song probably the most recognizable singles from the 90's, amidst the rest of the mainstream crud (remember, this was released a year after Kurt Cobain bit the bullet) that was going on. A funky-little bass line by Sean Yseult, some techno influence and Rob's rap-like Disco edge made this song a fun anthem for the Replicants from the movie 'Blade Runner'(Watch the movie and you'll find out what I mean)...A lot better than most of the

9. El Phantasmo & the Chicken-Run Blast-O-Rama - What a killer song title! I must admit whenever I bought my first copy back in '95, I just remember looking at that particular song title and thinking "Now that's the key to selling albums...great songs titles". This song while having a good riff at the beginning quickly turns into one of the more groove-style down tuning (probably a drop-C)...the song continues with really creepy Horror Movie samples that sound like they came from the 'Night of The Living Dead' or a really obscure 70's Grind house flick.

10. Blur the Technicolor - Oh yes! Definitely my favorite. The intro has some interesting tribal samples(could have easily came from 'Cannibal Holocaust'...Rob has expressed quite a love that that movie). The groove riffs really exceed where they sounded limited in the previous song, plus with a more warped sound to them and not to forget Rob's excellent showcase of quasi-hard rhyming.

11. Blood Milk and Sky - Back into the sludge we are! Starts off with an Indian chant played backwards, this song is given a dream-like atmosphere. Rob just gargles, mutters, and deeply moans the lyrics...really brooding and drone-like. There are some really nice female sing-along vocals during the chorus that just make it even more mysterious.

And there you have it. For those who missed out on it whenever it was first released...shame on you. Shame, shame, FOR SHAME on you poor pitiful souls. You have not lived, until you have experienced 'Astro Creep:2000'. By far one of the most entertaining and original Mainstream Metal albums of the 90's. This album deserves to be in every music collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolute, undisputed, inimitable metal classic...
Recently, while going over some records i havent listened to in quite some time i gave spin to "Astro Creep" again. Not that i expected it to be otherwise but i loved it just as I did almost a decade ago when i first heard it. White Zombie really reached their peak with this album and in doing so they created one of the top-10 metal albums of all time.

Sure, a lot of water has flown in the river since then, loads of crossover bands released their music and even more metal bands tried, most unsuccessfully, to copy Zombie's music. Even when Rob Zombie went solo he didn't come close to reaching the stunning metal assault of this album.

White Zombie were incredibly daft when they released Astro Creep. Incorporating electronic beats and effects, some of which were downright techno was not exactly what the average metalhead was willing to swallow. But the blending of all the elements in a masterful way produced a mix that was instantaneously addictive. It got you banging along without a second thought. Actually, if this album wont get you moving i hardly see what will.

The reason i consider this to be among the very best metal releases of all time is because of its boldness, its ferocity and its surreal grooviness. It's no accident that ten years later it sounds as fresh as ever and were it to be released today it would still make for a massive and a very influential rock album.

Sometimes i think that White Zombie's masterpiece was in a way "lost" in the wave of grunge releases back then, especially when i consider that yes it didnt sell bad, but at the same time it still remains undiscovered -mysteriously so- by quite some music buffs even among the metal scene itself.

A friend of mine claims about this album that it is the definitive album to listen to while driving.She's probably right, allthough i could think many instances where Astro CReep would be a perfect fit.
An adrenaline charge of the highest order if i ever heard one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Astro Creep 2000
This is a real good album. I haven't heard much from La Sexorsisto or The first one (Amazon says there's a first one before La Sexorsisto that not too many people know about and it's real heavy) but this alone makes White Zombie a great band. It's real trippy metal, their guitarist is awesome. The album starts with Electric Head Pt. 1. It's a real good opener that starts off slow and real wicked and trippy kind of putting you in a trance for a while waiting for what's next, then builds up into a mess of guitars and drums. The drums sound awesome and real fast. Super-Charger Heaven is great. it starts out with a cool sample and goes into a heavy mess. The guitar is great. This song is such a great example of how great this band is. Real Soulution #9 starts up with some crazy Charles Manson related sample. Rob uses his voice in such a way that sounds great in this song. It sounds like someone who smokes too many cigs and has a high voice through a harmonica mic. There's a crazy sample along the music on the bridge that goes with the instruments in such a great way. Creature Of The Wheel is classic. It's such a band heavy song. This song gets itself into my head it's so cool. Electric Head Pt.2 is another classic. It's got Shaft samples. It's such a pimp some. The Drums are used the same way almost on Electric Head Pt.1, alot of fast cymbals bass kind of driving it real fast from sample to sample and verse to verse. Grease Paint And Monkey Brains is a crazy assed song. Not my favorite but I still love it. I, Zombie is crazy too. It's one of the album's heavier. It starts off with a smaple of someone sniffin' coke or something and has a little sound symbolising euphoria and then kicks your butt. Everyone has heard More Human Than Human on the radio. It's got bunches and bunches of the guitarist using a slide. The bass line is crazy. I think it inspired Trent Reznor to use his crazy bass in Closer, It sounds like it's going through a wah or a filter of some sort. El Phantasmo is absolutely a crazy trip or something. The opening part just beats the hell out of you it's so heavy and beyond that it's just crazy tripped out metal. it winds itself down and gets slow towards the end. Blur The Technicolor is okay. Not my favorite but I still love it. It's got cool almost tribal drumming with the bass. Blood Milk And Sky is killer. It's slow and trippy. Kind of has an indian flare to it. In all this is a mighty great album. Instead of wasting money on anything new Rob's put out get this and play it loud. I have yet to here White's others but until then this is it's best. Most certainly heavy. ... Read more

Editorial Review

In a bordering-on-brilliant idea, the overseers of The Spawn soundtrack proposed an idea to a host of bands that went something like this: "you metal kids go play nice with the electronic geeks and maybe you'll make beautiful music together." Well, guess what? It happened. From the sexy, screamy sounds of the opening cut "Can't You Trip Like I Do" (courtesy of Filter and The Crystal Method) to the funkified "One Man Army" (Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello mixing it up with The Prodigy), the disc is as hot as the Spawn's home and twice as heavy as the monster himself. If you like the CD, rent the video; the soundtrack is front and center in the film, kind of like MTV with a plot. --Denise Sheppard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing...
This soundtrack is hands down, the BEST soundtrack ever produced. I am a huge rock and techno fan so this was like a dream come true for me. The heavyweights of rock collaborating with the techno kings...pure bliss. Honestly, it's hard for me to select an outstanding track because all the tracks are equally awesome. I have listened to various soundtracks from many many movies and none of them come even close to this...highly recommended!

4-0 out of 5 stars One hell of an album
Spawn: The Album is probably one of the best Movie Soundtracks ever created.It has some really great songs with some very popular bands like Metalica, Stabbingwestward ect.One of the best songs is from Maryln Mansion, this is also one of the finest piece of Elektronica(Ithink that's what you call it)music ever made in an album.

I won't go into detail except that this is a very underrated album and has some great songs and some very popular bands.It also has a song from Incubus that is acctually pretty damn good.

The guys who put this Album together did a terrific job and I must say that the Spawn Album is one of the only thing that wasn't a dissapointment about this film...

Go get it..

5-0 out of 5 stars My First CD
Like my review says, this was the first CD that I bought.It helped guide me into the direction of music that I wanted to listen to.It seems that there is a rule that bad movies have good soundtracks.This is supported here.(The movie was god awful) But this is different.The spawn Soundtrack is no ordinary Soundtrack.Every song is made by an industrial group and a metal group (most the time).Every song is different and every song is unique.One of my favorites here is Filter and Crystal Method's (Cant You) Trip like I Do.Unfortunately it seems it's the only good song I have heard out of either of these guys.The songs that take the cake are Marilyn Manson & the Sneaker Pimps' A Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Korn & the Dust Brother's Kick the P.A. and Slayer & Atari Teenage Riot's No Remorse.There is also a bizarre remix of Metallica's For Whom the Bell Tolls (with DJ Spooky?).The song Tiny Rubberband was the first song I had ever heard by the Butthole Surfers (With Moby) and I'm glad of it because they have become one of my favorite bands, it's a slow weird eerie song that most people here don't even mention but I like it.The song Spawn by Silverchair & Vitro is great and somewhat disturbing.

I wouldn't say that there are any bad songs at all with the exception of T-4 Strain by Henry Rollins & Goldie and the song Skin UpPin Up by Mansun (NOT MANSON) with 808 State.It also took me a while to get used to track 14.If your looking for an excellent industrial/metal compilation (or something along the lines of that) then I suggest you pick up a copy of this.But don't see the movie!Watch the Animated Series instead.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing beats the original version
I confess...I like Orgy's version of the New Order classic "Blue Monday". I like that booming techno/industrial sound that the group gives to the '80s classic. Still nothing beats the original version which is vastly superior to Orgy's rendition. I bought this single a few years ago because I had no desire to buy the entire album. It is just as well because the follow up single to "Blue Monday" sucked big time. Although I do like Orgy's cover of "Blue Monday", I thought (and still do) that the remixes on the single were pretty terrible, except for the Club 69 remix but otherwise I didn't like the rest of the remixes. "Blue Monday" does not sound good as a drum and bass song which you can hear on the Optical Vocal mix. Secondly including the Green Velvet mix of "Stitches" was pointless and also sounded terrible. I don't care for dub remixes. They just bore me. Other than the single mix, the only remix I really did like was Club 69 and that is because Club 69 didn't try to re-work the song completely like drum & bass artist (or group) Optical.

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than the 'Stitches' single, that's for sure
I'm in a good mood right now, so I'm not going to be as critical of the 'Blue Monday' single as I was 'Stitches'.For starters, with the exception of the first track (the single mix), if you just blindly pop this CD into your player without looking at it, you'll be hard pressed to figure out what you're listening to, which isn't necessarily bad, as some of these songs come off really cool.

We start the CD off with the single version of Blue Monday... if you've got 'Candyass', you've heard this; if you have a radio, you've heard this.The second track is the Optical Vocal Mix, which is pretty much your straight-forward drums 'n' bass mix of Blue Monday, and while only 6:37 long, it feels longer than most songs on here.Track three, the Green Velvet Mix of 'Stitches', it blows.For the love of God, stop trying to remix this song, it's not possible.It's basically six minutes and eleven seconds of... looped over a monotonous tune.Just terrible, I can't say enough bad things about this "song".

My patience has paid off!Track four and five, the Club 69 Mix and Club 69 Dub, respectively, are REALLY good.They must have samples from the original New Order 'Blue Monday', because the beats from this sound IDENTICAL to New Order's version.The songs have this 80's feel to them, almost like a New Order/Orgy hybrid song, but at the same time they sound very cutting-edge, and are my personal favorites from the single.The Club 69 Mix clocks in at a whopping 8:40, while the Dub is half a minute shorter, but you'll wish both of them were longer, they're that good.Track six is the Optical Instrumental Mix, which is the Optical Vocal Mix without, you guessed it, vocals!Moving on, for track seven, we get DJ Dan!If you've read my 'Opticon' review, you'll know how much I love this guy ;-).While his 'Stitches' remix was an abomination of remixes, he does a good job of remixing 'Blue Monday', so much that you can actually recognize the song he's mixing!

Overall, this is a MUCH better buy than the 'Stitches' single.You also get the video for 'Blue Monday' in QuickTime format... while I wasn't impressed with any of the videos from 'Candyass', it's still a nice addition to the CD, and makes this a worthwhile purchase.Orgy should let Charlie Clouser, Trent Reznor, Josh Eustis or Troy Van Leeuwen remix some of their stuff, and then I'd be REALLY happy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff - makes me wanna dance, among other things
I bought this single long after I had both of Orgy's albums. They always get great people to remix their stuff, and I listen to the Blue Monday remixes several times a week. If you like this song and dance music, then this would be a good buy for you. The original music of the song is not very prevelent on most the remixes. There is also an excellent remix of Dissention on here that I like even better than the album version. You can hear the background lyrics better and, on this remix, unlike most Orgy remixes, they left in a lot of the original music. Great beats on the whole single - and heck, the band themselves admitted to listening to the thing for four nights straight when they first heard it (they weren't involved in the remixing for this single). And the Club69 track is aptly named. Pay attention to the beat... ... Read more

It might look and sound like it, but this really isn't a collection of songs used in the movie "Mortal Kombat" which didn't get onto the first soundtrack album. A better title for this one might be "Mortal Kombat: Music Inspired By the Motion Picture."

Of course, "More Kombat" does have its good points: "It Has Begun" by Psychosonik and "Fatality" by Loaded use sounds from both the movie and one of the video games. But like the first "Mortal Kombat" soundtrack cassette tape, "More Kombat" has more of the same split between techno and metal, though there are far more metal tracks.Yep, these bands are definitely ready to rumble.

5-0 out of 5 stars Too cool !
This cd has more heavy beat then the second of the trilogy and it's makes little different but i enjoyed this cd..

5-0 out of 5 stars Pulse-pounder
Unlike the other CDs from the first MK movie, this CD is more akin to the MK:Annihilation CD in that it has a variety of self-contained songs with heavy techno-beats (mostly).I listen to this CD in my car now and again,and I never get tired of it.Track #2 is a great song, and track #8 iseven better (with the Scorpion's "Come Here" yell in thebackground--it's awesome).A lot of the other tracks are simplyoutstanding.I think the MK:Annihilation CD surpassed this one, but it isnevertheless a memorable CD.I highly recommend it. ...
