4.0 out of 5 stars RATM and Green Day save this album October 18, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Long Lost Godzilla Review has finally arrived December 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This review was written in late 1998 or early 1999. I posted the review back when it was originally written but the review never appeared. This should have been one of the oldest, if not the oldest, review of this product on Amazon. It was issued on Amazon.co.uk on January 21, 2001. So, over a decade (twelve years in fact) after it was completed, here is my review of GODZILLA: THE SOUNDTRACK. It should be known that I have not heard this soundtrack since the late 1990s with the exception of "Come With Me" which is on my iPod. I have NEVER seen the movie. I remember "Undercover" being a somewhat funny, rather ridiculous song. I still stand by what I said in the original review though, even after over a decade of not having heard the album, that this was a soundtrack caculated slowly at reaching as many different type of markets as possible, and the record feels disjointed and does not flow. Very bad album, though the individual songs themselves (most of them) are actually pretty good.

Godzilla: The Album Review
[There's a lot of great music out there with high integrity]...and this ain't it. Good album ... from the commercial standpoint. This album is pure product, nothing more. (Which, by the way, is what is ruined about Beatles for Sale). A few people have praised it for the variety of music contained therein. Sorry, on this record, not a strong point. It was just a blatant cash-in. Wallflower's cover of Heros costed $500,000. That is how much they paid the band. This was widely criticized in the recording industry.

if you are a fan of late 90s music then this has a great cross section of the time. If you like a good beat and dance music that engages you, get this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad movie Good soundtrack
Although the film was a horrible attempt to bring the Japanese legend to American cinema, the cd was decent. P Diddy should do more rock.
