Editorial Reviews

What do Paris Hilton, Sarah Brightman, Clown from Slipknot - Paul Sorvino, Steven Perkins and Bill Mosley have in common?

REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman
Produced by Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate
Written by Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich
Starring Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton, Anthony Head, Bill Mosely, Ogre, Terrance Zdunich and Sarah Brightman, (cameo by Joan Jett)

In the no-so-distant future, a worldwide epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GENECO, a biotech company that offers organ transplants...for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by THE REPO MAN. By fusing ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and BLADE RUNNER, this futuristic tale of horror modernizes the rock opera genre with original music and rich, dark production design.
This rock opera boasts an entirely original soundtrack that blends equal parts goth and punk rock to form an eerie and powerful musical narrative. All of the actors performed their own songs, and the music was provided by an all-star lineup that features performances from Richard Patrick (Filter), Steven Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Clown (Slipknot), Ray Luzier (Army of Anyone), Brian Young (David Lee Roth's band), Richard Fortus (Guns & Roses), Sonny Moore (First to Last), David J (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets), Daniel Ash (Love & Rockets), Blasko (Ozzy Osborne), Tommy Clefetus (Rob Zombie's band), Melora Creager (Rasputina). Also lending her voice to the soundtrack is the edgy pop star Poe. Japanese musician and composer Yoshiki Haysahi (of the legendary rock band X-Japan) co-produced the music with Joe Bishara to create one of the most diverse soundtracks in movie history.

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Know You Want It Baby Geneco's Got It January 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Seriously, why are you even reading this review. Obviously you have seen this movie and love it. You find yourself singing Zydrate Anatomy in the shower. Just buy this CD. Seriously, stop reading, scroll up, press the Add To Cart button and buy this. Then listen to it. Heck, create a religion and worship it. Our children will be asking us about this movie one day. Show them the light....

5.0 out of 5 stars REPO rocks hard. October 7, 2008
By Holly
Format:Audio CD
I've been excited about this movie since I first heard of its existence, but I never could have predicted such a rocking, intense, glorious set of songs to accompany the film's originality. I expected good, but I got brilliant.

The soundtrack plays alternately like a gothic/industrial album [Legal Assassin, Zydrate Anatomy], a quirky piece of novelty comedy [Mark It Up, We Started This Op'ra S**t], and moving musical tragedy [Gold, Genetic Emancipation]. The elements of traditional opera somehow manage to mesh with hardcore guitar riffing. It's an eclectic music fan's dream. All the players, especially Terrance Zdunich [and even Paris Hilton] deliver vocally, and the production is nearly impeccable. [It's easy to see why Yoshiki jumped on this project, since it plays essentially like Violet UK: The Musical.]

I don't normally rave so consistently about records - let alone soundtracks - but I have nothing bad to say here. REPO is amusing, moving, and deliciously dark. Like Dexter with sopranos, or Sweeney Todd discovers distortion. Beauty meets degradation in a truly fascinating way.

TESTIFY.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fusion of gothic rock with some operatic qualities October 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Repo! The Genetic Opera, with the trashy Paris Hilton, the unintelligible Sarah Brightman, the washed up girl from "Spy Kids" and the director of torture-porn fame Darren Lynn Bousman does sound like a formula for failure, however, after listening to the Soundtrack several times it may not turn out that bad after all.

Courtesy of Sarah Brightman and (especially) Paul Sorvino little operatic phrases fill otherwise Gothic-style Rock/Pop Rock tracks which offers a unique experience we haven't seen in musicals before (not that it is unheard of in music in general, think Nightwish). But at times it's hard to tell whether shifts in genre are intentional or the result of poor arrangements. A strange transition from the gothic (albeit ringtone repetitive) "Things you see In a Graveyard" " to "Infected" comes to mind which would not sound out of place in a typical teenage girl pop-rock band - although it is quite catchy and here Alexa Vega proves she can sing. Perhaps if I saw them within the context of the film (and in the correct order), I would appreciate the tracks even more - but it doesn't appear Lionsgate thinks the movie is commercially viable to have a wide release.

Still, even without the movie there are many notable tracks: "Legal Assassin" is a great rock number performed very well by Anthony Head, the rhythmic "Mark it up" and the deepish "21st Century Cure" are also among my favourites. "I didn't know I'd Love you So Much" and "Genetic Emancipation" are contrasting and (especially the former) moving tracks that hold their own, even if a little pop-ish.

The two bests tracks are though, in my opinion "Zydrate Anatomy" and "Gold". Paris Hilton is actually not that bad either and I feel without her the former would lose something (not that she has a big part).

5.0 out of 5 stars Did you see the movie? June 7, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Do yourself a favor- watch the movie before you buy this. This movie is definitely not for everyone, but if you like it, you'll like the soundtrack.

<rant>
I don't understand why people buy soundtracks if they haven't seen the movie. I further don't understand why people buy soundtracks if they HAVE seen the movie and dislike it.

This movie has a huge following of underground lovers, and RHPS(Rocky Horror Picture Show) enthusiasts, as well as independent movie lovers. If this doesn't sound like you, then OF COURSE YOU WON'T FALL IN LOVE WITH THE SOUNDTRACK! It's a fricken musical, people! You don't go buy the soundtrack to Rent or Spring Awakening without understanding the plot and think it's the best **** ever, what makes you think that will happen here?
</rant>

Some people will not like this movie, or the soundtrack. Fine. Some people bought either or both without knowing what they were buying. I say, it's your own fault for spending your money without knowing what you were buying. I for one, loved it. 'nuff said.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it... BUT February 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay I got hooked on Repo via the new Musical on DVD. Anthony Head is perfect. Ms Vega is outstanding. Paul Sorvino was a complete surprise, wonderful job. Even Paris was good in her role.
But back to the cd after watching the movie. So when I bought the cd I was certain I'd be completely happy. While I love the songs still I am vexed by the way the cd was cut. The songs are not in the order of the movie, very dissappointing. And worse they cut out so many perfect song moments!! You get 2 or 3 songs not shown in the movie but what's the point. I would have rather they extended the other songs and left those off. Like 'Bug a Needle'. Without seeing what this song was supposed to be about, it made no sense at all! They left out the start of the Night Surgeon where Rotti is forcing Nathan to remember. Come on guys that was beautiful work!!! Why wasn't it on the cd?? And why wasn't Gravdigger's last song on the cd. It was a very important message. The 'dummy's' part is not included in Thankless Job, I can deal with that better. Because I just end up singing that part. hehe
Either way this is a phenominal musical and if you haven't given it a try you should. But warning you will either LOVE IT or HATE IT!

IS this a burned cd?
Yes- right now it is only available online because the parent company of the movie is giving it such a limited release. (Hopefully if enough people buy the ST and go see the movie, it will get a wider release.)

So according to Amazon their CD is "manufactured on demand using CD-R... Read More

I knowwwww. I wish it was getting a bigger release. I'm in love. I'm smitten.

I'm jealous of places hosting the release. Grr and persnicket.

So . . . What's worse?
I think the whole thing is silly. I mean, I guess I can see it from both sides.

Torrenters don't believe they should have to pay for something; if they don't know if they are going to like it. Which does make sp,e sense. I would hate to buy a movie on impulse only to find out I hated it. But... Read More
