There are some great covers, sung by movie cast members, and a couple of good original songs too.

I had to wait to see this movie on DVD, and was so impressed with the match of the music to the film I got the soundtrack right away.

Never been a Tyler Bates fan but the soundtrack to Sucker Punch not only captures the spirit and themes of the film brilliantly, it's a krusher from start to finish! Though it feels more like an Emily Browning vehicle- in addition to being the star of the movie she performs three of the nine songs- it doesn't detract from anything. She's got a light, airy voice and can actually carry a note. Beyond that, every cut here is a solid groove; there's not a weak one in the bunch. This one was made for cranking up the volume!

Track Listing:
1) Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This): Mostly electro-acoustic version sung by Emily Browning to a slower, more atmospheric tempo with some nice beats in the background.

2) Army Of Me (Sucker Punch Remix): Bjork teams up with Skunk Anansie for a new take on the old joint. Gets progressively harder as it goes with some action oriented mashing dropped in before coming back to the remixed style.

3) White Rabbit: What's an over-the-top psychedelic sci-fi/fantasy movie without this one? Hot bassline, great drums, nifty guitar, layered vocals and synths- this one's a jam. Plus Emiliana Torrini's accent makes me all tingly...

4) I Want It All/We Will Rock You (Mash-Up): Never been a fan of rap metal, and not really a fan of this one. But the mix is pretty entertaining and Brian May drops a nice little riff in the midst of it all.

5) Search & Destroy: Fast, furious and fun, Skunk Anansie delivers a left hook! Somewhere in a trashed hotel room Iggy Pop is smiling.

6) Tomorrow Never Knows: An impressive rendering of a Beatles classic by Alison Moorhat and Carla Azar. Definitely finds its own groove while keeping the spirit of the original.

The best thing you can say about any movie soundtrack is that the songs all mesh together -- even if they are from different artists.

And from the look of the movie "Sucker Punch," it needs a butt-kicking soundtrack -- something girly yet tough and wild. So that is pretty much what you get in the soundtrack: one part rousing rock'n'roll, one part ethereal floating pop, and one part psychedelic wildness. It sounds like it shouldn't fit together at all, but it does.

It opens on a grand note with Emily Browning's cover of "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)," which begins as a soft pop anthem but quickly becomes tangled in dark twisting guitars and epic washes of electric violin. After that we get a strong serving of rock and pop music, with the lines between them blurred with fiery guitars and soaring epic melodies.

There's the sizzling, yowling "Search and Destroy" by Skunk Anansie; the slow-swirling psychedelica of Yoav's "Where Is My Mind?"; the sensual jazzy "Love is the Drug" by Carla Gugino and Oscar Izaac; the wildly energetic, epic remix of Bjork's "Army of Me"; Alison Mosshart and Carl Azar's hauntingly expansive rock anthem "Tomorrow Never Knows"; and Emily Browning's bittersweet, violin-soaked lullaby "Asleep."

The ultimate highlight: Emiliana Torrini's trippy, blazing cover of "White Rabbit," which basically sums up the whole concept of the movie. The only downside is "I Want It All/We Will Rock You," which is basically hip-hop artist Armageddon (formerly of the Terror Squad) rapping over Queen samples. It just... doesn't fit with the rest of the music.

The "Sucker Punch" soundtrack is one of those soundtracks that you can enjoy independently of the movie.

This soundtrack is brilliant. Psychadelic rock tunes abound, and all have been expertly produced to fit the movie's dark mood. The cast does an amazing job at performing these songs (Emily Browning sings three and some other cast members sing another). It also includes some brilliant remixes of songs by their original artists. Throughout this very short soundtrack album I can honestly say not one track is skippable. All of them are mesmerizing! In particular, however, "Army of Me", "White Rabbit" and "Tomorrow Never Knows" are very notable.

This is definitely a soundtrack worth checking out!

First off, let me say that this album is well worth listening to for fans of any genre of music. You don't even have to like the movie to like the album, although being familiar with the plot of the movie only makes it a better listening experience. Although many have debated the quality of the movie (I for one absolutely loved it), the soundtrack is definitely worth experiencing for anyone who has a passion for beautiful music. The soundtrack starts off soft with Emily Browning's awe-inspiring, beautiful voice with "Sweet Dreams," and it continues on with the awesome techno bass beats of "Army of Me." "I Want It All" is just an epic song, especially when you're imagining the Mayor smoking his stogie while listening to it. Skunk Anansie's "Search and Destroy" has one of the best recent guitar solos I've heard. Carla Azar's "Tomorrow Never Knows" pays proper homage to The Beatles while putting a new spin on the song. Yoav and Emily Browning perform "Where Is My Mind" exceptionally well, with tons of emotion. Emily Browning's beautiful performance of "Asleep" is almost guaranteed to make you tear-up with it's emotionally-charged tone. I literally almost cried listening to "Where Is My Mind" and "Asleep" for the first time. They are probably the most beautiful, emotional songs I have ever heard. Overall, the Sucker Punch Soundtrack is worth buying and listening to multiple times for anyone who likes to listen to great music of any type.
