Editorial Reviews

Director Michael Mann's gritty urban thriller revolves around a Los Angeles cabbie (Jamie Foxx) taken hostage on his late-night rounds by charming mob hit man Tom Cruise. Mann's penchant for uniquely eclectic film scores has previously encompassed everything from the electronica-suffused world beat of Ali to the brooding, ambient post-modernism of The Insider. Here Mann effectively cobbles together an even more far-ranging musical landscape, one that echoes LA's rich multi-culturalism (the savory, nouveau Latin rhythms of Guero Canelo's "Calexico," Destino de Abril's sultry "Green Car Motel") while simultaneously paving its mean streets with a tough, urban groove. That mood is variously enhanced by producer Tom Rothrock and Antonio Pinto's alternately pulsing and brooding electronic soundscapes, the soul variations of The Roots and Groove Armada (the latter's "Hands of Time" featuring vocals by vet Richie Haven). Audioslave's "Shadows of the Sun" imparts a contemporary rock edge, while the standout "Spanish Key" from Miles Davis' fusion breakthrough Bitches Brew deliciously underscores the film's uneasy tensions. Masterfully stitching it all together are the nervy, rhythmically charged cues of composer James Newton Howard. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember 'Miami Vice'? August 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a great soundtrack as it perfectly evokes the up-all-night feel of the movie. Its breadth of artists--Audioslave, Groove Armada and Miles Davis, for instance--all fit the mood in different ways. I used to work a job where I got off at 1 AM and would flip through the dials for different sounds on the way home. Same vibe here.

And when I heard a song called "Rollin' Crumblin" I couldn't help but think of the first time I saw the episode of Miami Vice with Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight" (yeah, I'm that old).

Great movie; well-done soundtrack/score; a little skimpy with the tunes (at 52 minutes, could have gotten a few more good songs on here).

COLLATERAL is such an excellent movie and one of its many plusses is its urban, evocative soundtrack. It is marvelously captured on this CD with all the variety and intensity you enjoyed while watching the film.

Definitely a superior film score to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Urban Landscaping in Sound August 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Just watched the movie last night; it's one of those joints where you remember the music as much as the cinematography. I haven't purchased it yet, but I think it may be in order. Actually, I already own some of the stuff, so I may just wait for iTunes to list it.

As an aside, I'm not sure who else might have noticed this, but as Max is giving Annie the initial cab ride, she asks him to turn up a song that's playing on the radio. He replies, "oh, you like the classics?" I couldn't help but chuckle, given that the song he was referring to was "Hands of Time" from Groove Armada's 2002 album, "Lovebox". A classic indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Movie Soundtrack of 2004 December 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you haven't seen the movie Collateral, then just buying this will make you want to see it. The music evokes such a lush imagery that you almost feel that you're in the scenes, experiencing the traumatic rush & excitement of each scene as they're acted brilliantly by Jamie Fox, Tom Cruise and the excellent support cast.

My favorite track is....well nearly all of them but definitely the memorable & haunting "Destino D'Abril" (the taut scene where Max is in the Mexican club pretending to be Vincent) by a band called Green Car Motel. If you've tried to find music by Green Car Motel and couldn't it's because their official name is actually Act of Faith. The band has 4 members: Rick Garcia - Lead Vocals, Rene Reyes, ex bass player for Oingo Boingo John Avila, and current Goo-Goo Dolls drummer Mike Malinin. Get their album on Amazon today! [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in all Ways. July 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Usually when I see movies, the biggest thing for me is the music. Music helps create the atmosphere for a film, and without good music, the film might as well go straight to the shame awards, because it won't be nearly as good. Fortunetely for Collateral, the music was great in every single aspect.

This soundtrack is definetely one you listen to in a car, at night, through downtown. Micheal Mann chose the music brilliantly, covering all aspects of downtown at night. The beats in all the tracks are great, particularly Ready, Steady, Go, by Oakenfold, and The Hands of Time by Groove Armada. Great songs to listen to when driving, at any time.

Anyway...This entire soundtrack is incredible, and I love it. This is one soundtrack that you really should make a part of your music collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tracks not included August 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This was a good soundtrack, but there were a couple of tracks that were not included on the release. When Tom Cruise's is leaving the jazz club, the track playing is the "Heat" soundtrack, entitled "Steel Cello Lament". Also, the track playing when the FBI agents are loading up and preparing to get Max is from the soundtrack, "1492", entitled "Moxica and the Horse". Just thought I would drop a line for anyone that was interested in knowing. I thought it was a really good movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than HEAT! September 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I saw "Collateral" in the theatre...twice; the thing I remembered the most about it was the music. It was an attribute that is common in all of Michael Mann's films especially his crime dramas. I was floored by Antonio Pinto's "Requiem" which played at the end was reminiscent of "God Moving over the Face of the Waters" which played at the end of "Heat"-one of my all-time favorite movies. They both displayed humanity and sadness even in the case of the bad guys getting what came to them. Every track was different from each other which displayed the ecclectic urban vibes which fit in perfectly with the events in the movie. I especially like the instrumental tracks James Newton Howard wrote for the score. "Vincent Hops Train" and "Max Steals Briefcase" were great moments of intensity. I play Green Car Motel's "Destino de Abril" over and over, I love the mixture of rock and Spanish guitar which enlivened Max's meeting with Felix. All in all it's one of the few soundtracks that has everything in it. A lot of variety, intensity, and drama to go with it. To be compared with the Heat soundtrack it's better and faster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collateral February 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I originally bought the soundtrack because of one song I had heard in the movie. However, when I received the CD I was surprised to find I liked nearly every song on the CD. Good choice.
