Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There are four good reasons to pick up the Fantastic Four soundtrack. The first three are kinda buried in the middle of the CD--and they all happen to be new songs. First, there's "I'll Take You Down," a nifty rocker by a combo called T.F.F. Never heard of them? They're an ad hoc supergroup featuring the Distillers' banshee Brody Dalle, Yeah Yeah Yeahs' guitarist Nick Zinner, the Datsuns' singer-bassist Dolf de Datsun, and Jet's drummer Chris Cester. Second, Joss Stone's "Whatever Happened to the Heroes" is a lot better than its obvious title suggests; it's a rollicking, old-school rock-soul track namedropping Joe DiMaggio (a hero in Stone's native Devon?) and Marilyn Monroe. Finally, there's "Everything Burns," which sees former Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody collaborating with Anastacia on his first solo outing. It looks like an odd-couple combination but somehow it works--probably because Moody knows how to write bombastic power ballads. (It's certainly less icky than "Hero" from Spiderman.) The fourth good reason is the very last track: "Kirikirimai" is a hyperactive rock/hip-hop hybrid that introduces Japanese band Orange Range to the American market. The rest of the CD, which mixes new tunes and recycled ones, is surprisingly solid with muscular but melodic contributions from Velvet Revolver, Sum 41, Simple Plan, and Lloyd Banks's infectious "On Fire." Just try to get its organ riff out of your head. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Four September 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
1. Come On, Come In-Velvet Revolver-3:59-10/10: Great opening song. It's hardcore rock. I didn't really know who Velvet Revolver were, but now i'm going to have to look them up. Great guitar solo.

2. Error Operator-Taking Back Sunday-3:09-10/10: This song has a really great chorus and the verses are really well written. I really like the instrumental part right before the final chorus.

3. Relax-Chingy-3:31-10/10: I don't usually listen to rap, but this song really makes me sing along. Great uses of the Fantastic Four's names.The beat makes it sound like a video game.

4. Whatever Happened To The Heroes-Joss Stone-3:56-9/10: This is the first song i have of Joss Stone and i was amazed. She is a really good singer and the lyrics are really good. The ending is really good and i like the second verse where she names certain people that could be her heroes.

5. Waiting (Save Your Life)-Omnisoul-4:02-10/10: Great opening to the song and all together a great song. I am really anticapating their album thats coming out next year. It has a really great beat and will make you a fan of theirs once you hear it.

6. Always Come Back To You-Ryan Cabrera-3:33-10/10: Ryan was one person i didn't expect to see on a soundtrack like this, but once i heard this song, it became one of my favorites on the album. It has a great beat and the chorus makes you want to sing along.

7. Everything Burns-Ben Moody feat. Anastacia-3:41-10/10: This is the lead single off of the soundtrack. I didn't know if Ben could pull it off, but he did. I like anastacias voice in the begining, but i don't like in the end when she starts screeching. The begining had great acoustic guitar and the end becomes a great power song.

8. New World Symphony-Miri Ben-Ari feat.

4.0 out of 5 stars mmmm...not bad July 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well this is wind-ups second soundtrack release in 1 year, in January the soundtrack for the Elektra movie was released, now we get another Marvel movie soundtrack.

Wind-up have released Daredevil and The Punisher previously to Elektra which I was both huge fans of, amazing selection of songs. Now we come to the Fantastic Four album, a few rock songs and a few rap/hip-hop songs which I ain't too keen on one bit: this is my track-by-track review anyhow:

1) Come on, Come In - Velvet Revolver - 9/10 - Not bad really, pretty good introduction, nice guitars, worthy of a single release perhaps

2) Error Operator - Taking Back Sunday - 8/10 - Ok verse's, the chorus are a joke though, repeatings "We can't go back" about 6 times over which I think is pretty bad, but the rest of the song is brilliant

3) Relax - Chingy - 4/10 - Not my cup of tea one bit, never liked this genre, never will

4) Whatever Happened to the Heroes - Joss Stone - 7/10 - Suprised they chose Joss for this soundtrack, the song actually isn't that bad, fits for the movie I reckon, not my favourite, but not my least.

5) Waiting (Save Our Lives) - Omnisoul - 10/10 - Very good song, fits perfectly on the soundtrack and on the movie too, should of been the lead song from the CD but oh well.

6) Always Come Back to You - Ryan Canbrera - 8/10 - Again like Joss Stone, this one suprised me, but again not a bad song at all, fits the CD nicely

7) Everything Burns - Ben Moody feat. Anastacia - 10/10 - Nice combanation between the two, the lead single from the CD, one of my favs from the CD

8) New World Symphony - Miri Ben-Ari - 5/10 - Who the hell?

4.0 out of 5 stars Multiple Genres Result In So-So Soundtrack April 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Like many others have stated, Marvel has had great success with the soundtracks of their recent comic-turned-movie characters. "Daredevil," "Elektra," and the wonderful "The Punisher" soundtracks have all fared better than their respective films as far as dollars go. With "Fantastic Four," I believe that Marvel and producer Wind-Up have attempted to create a mixture of sounds as unique as the four heroes from the film. Unfortunately, this alienates every crowd out there by only offering a few songs from multiple genres. There's hard rock from bands like Velvet Revolver and T.F.F., faux punk from Sum 41 and Simple Plan, hip-hop from Lloyd Banks and Chingy, pop from artists like Ryan Cabrera, pop soul from Joss Stone, a shameless plug for a seemingly Amy Lee wannabe called Megan McCauley and a whole mixture of other artists.

While this is a mixed bag, there are some highlights. VR's "Come On, Come In" opens this album with the hopes of a rockin' good time. Joss Stone's "Whatever Happened To The Heroes" is excellent. Sum 41's "Noots," an infectious, high-energy tune, makes this band sound a lot better than they really are. Ben Moody and Anastacia's "Everything Burns" proves that Moody doesn't need Amy Lee to stand out. Taking Back Sunday's "Error Operator" and the very unique (even for this album) "Kirikirimai" from Orange Range are also stand out tracks.

Overall, this album is hit-and-miss. The good outweighs the bad, hence the four star rating. Still, I'd sample this album before buying it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the Movie Soundtrack
I mistook this piece of trash for the movie soundtrack. Loud, obnoxious heavy metal that has nothing to do with the movie. If I could return it, I would. Buyer beware!

2.0 out of 5 stars More pop than action score
Unfortunately, this soundtrack is kind of like the movie - a bit disappointing. It's a lot of hip hop, pop, etc. Don't except anything much like X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

If you like the music from the movie than go for it! A nice balance of ballads and rock out music. Even a japanese rap song. : )

4.0 out of 5 stars A great movie soundtrack!
Along with soundtracks to the Spider-Man trilogy and Daredevil, the soundtrack to Fantastic Four is awesome. I bought this from eBay. I'm glad that I did. It is a great CD.
