Product Description

Godzilla's return to the big screen mixes old and new; this monster of a flick infuses '90s special effects into the classic tale of a lizard gone awry. In effect, the movie's soundtrack embraces a similar resurrection: established artists either breathing new life into well-worn tunes or showcasing exclusive tracks and new lineups. And, like the movie, the soundtrack only succeeds on certain levels. The Wallflowers' recording of David Bowie's "Heroes" (the album's single) is hardly groundbreaking, and the predictable Puffdaddy treatment to Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" drags on. The Foo Fighters, here in their first recording to feature new guitarist Franz Stahl, take a mellow pop tromp. Ben Folds Five's "Air" and Green Day's "Brain Stew," the latter remixed especially for Godzilla, are the album highlights. As the saying goes, sometimes bigger isn't better. --Jason Verlinde

Customer Reviews

Loved the movie and most of the musical score.
William D. Cox
Although you don't get a very good dosage of the music on the disk, a greater sampling can be heard on the movie or the rare "sneak preview soundtrack".
"drevil4934"
Foo Fighters and Green Day also have good songs, and this makes this CD all together, a pretty darn good soundtrack!

Godzilla: the movie wasn't that great of a film. Likewise, Godzilla: the album isn't that great of a CD. It has a mix of orchestrated instrumental (the last two tracks on the CD, taken from the movie itself), light-sounding alternative (Ben Folds Five), rap/metal (Puff Daddy and Rage Against The Machine), punk rock (Green Day, Silverchair, Foo Fighters), and hard rock (Days of the New, fuzzbubble). It's a fairly worthy effort, all things considered. However, this album is good - but it isn't great. The only songs worth listening to are "No Shelter," probably the most intelligent song on the album - indeed, one of the only intelligent songs on any soundtrack nowadays. This hard-driving burst of rap-core might be enough to satisfy those Rage fans that are eagerly awaiting the new RATM album to be released, but it lacks the pure intensity of Rage's other songs. Nonetheless, it's still an excellent song and one of the few I actually listen to more than once or twice.
Another notable track is the remixed "Brain Stew," penned by Green Day. This song was originally off their "Insomniac" album, which I consider to be their best effort to date. This song, like all the others on that album, is hard, heavy, and fast (although, not as fast as the others). It's a great song, and the remix is exciting and refreshing to listen to. I'm a big fan of Green Day, and this is one of my favorite songs of theirs, but the Godzilla remix has a certain...quality to it that keeps me listening to it over the original. The other notable tracks on this album include "Come With Me," rapped by Sean "Puffy" Combs A.K.A.

This soundtrack doesn't really capture the spirit of the movie. Thats one of main reasons for not liking it too much. Some of the songs are worth owning just because they are good. "Untitled" by Silverchair is perhaps their best song and IS the best song on the album. Rage Against the Machine's "No Shelter" is another good standout. Its pure Rage! Puff Daddy's remake of "Kashmir" now titled "Come With Me" is a heck of a song. It was also nice to see Jimmy Page playing guitars on this track. "Heroes" by The Wallflowers is okay, but only if you are a big Wallflower lover. Jamiroquai's song "Deeper Undergroud" is like all of his other tracks, annoying! Why they even put the remix of "Brainstew" by Green Day on this record I will never understand. The other songs on the album are a big disappointment. Even the Foo Fighters' song was a flop. Like most soundtracks this is just an attempt for a band to put out their b-sides with only a few good gems thrown in the mix. Its not that good, but its better than having to sit through the movie!

The Wallflowers, Green Day, Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page, The Foo Fighters, and Jamiroqui are just half of the great songs on this soundtrack. Get it!

It's one thing for a band to cover a lesser known song of one of their influences, or to reinvent a famous song for their generation, whatever. Its another thing entirely for some no-talent hack like Sean Combs to lay some "Oooh-yeah"s over a tune as immortal as Kashmir (twisted into "Come With Me") and call it a song. Combs wouldn't know a good song if it hit him in the face, or, more accurately, if someone else wrote it. Puffy's cover is nothing more than a limp-wristed marketing grab. Musically, it is a complete waste.
The same goes somewhat for the Wallflowers shoddy attempt at Bowie's "Heroes." Bowie is a god, and as good as Jakob may one day be, the younger Dylan is simply not yet worthy of touching this brilliant piece of Bowie/Eno work.
The rest of the album is typical soundtrack fodder, with the notable exception being Rage Against the Machine's invigorating "No Shelter," almost strong enough on its own to justify buy! ! ing this album.

The reason I got this CD is because of all the artists on here. The Wallflowers, one of my favorite bands, does a great cover of David Bowie's 'Heroes'. Puff Daddy and Jimmy Page pull off a great song, I think, with 'Come With Me'. Jamiroquai, who I've always liked for his disco-funk style, does a good job on 'Deeper Underground'. Rage Against The Machine does an okay job, although I think most of their songs all sound the same, with 'No Shelter'. Ben Folds Five is not a band i'm interested in, they're too boring. Days of the new isn't bad but I don't know too much from them so I couldn't really tell you. Same with Michael Penn. Fuel, another one of my favorite bands, does 'Walk The Sky', which is probably one of this albums strongest songs. Foo Fighters and Green Day also have good songs, and this makes this CD all together, a pretty darn good soundtrack!

ok. now i know that basically everyone hates this cd, but it's really not all that bad. the puff daddy song is cool because it has jimmy page in it, jamiroqui really sucks, but his song on here is actually pretty good. rage against the machine is always good. ben folds five is good in their own little quirky ways. days of the new provides some good acoustic work. then you have some silverchair. a very good silverchair song at that. fuel rocks, so expect good. foo fighters put a good song here, with their new guitarist. then you have green day, which is always good. but probably my favorite song on this album is "out there" by fuzzbubble. there's not really much i can say about these guys except for the fact that they kick ass. and that is my review of the good cd that is the godzilla soundtrack.

It just shows either:

A: Amazon is retarded and doesn't know how to link reviews properly

or

B: The majority of the people giving the reviews are retarded and can not read for comprehension.

Your choice, either of these are plausible.
