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.

7) Where Is My Mind: A Pixies remake that features another appearance by Emily Browning, accompanied by Israeli guitarist Yoav. Starts slow but steadily picks up steam. It's ok, but more for atmosphere than anything.

8) Asleep: The third Emily Browning performance, this time doing The Smiths. A little slower and more acoustic than the original, but good.

9) Love Is The Drug: Oscar Isaac and Carla Guigino do a good job performing this one cabaret-style ala Liza Minelli and Joel Gray. Obviously they were cast as much for their vocal talents as their acting.

Gotta admit, I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. Only thing missing is some of the orchestrations from the movie to make it more complete. This is more a 4.5 than a 5-star, but... what the heck. You'll like it!

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. And even though most of the songs are from different artists (ranging from actress Emily Browning to Icelandic pop stars), they all have a unifying sound -- very gritty around the edges, with lots of fiery rock'n'roll, but also with softer ethereal edges.

So expect lots of fiery electric guitars, psychedelic riffs, violins and blazing bass, usually woven into melodies that sound.... well, epic and action-packed. Some of the songs are pretty much instrumental, but the vocals are amazing as well -- Skunk Anansi's raw yowl, Torrini's chilly accented voice, and Browning's sleepy girlish soprano ("Some of them want to abuse you/some of them want to be abused...") all mesh easily.

Regardless of whether you love or hate the movie, the "Sucker Punch" soundtrack is a delight -- an intense, uncoiling barrage.

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.

This movie's special effects are phenominal. The plot is captivating (if you even try to follow it), because it flies back and forth in time and reality/fantasy.
I just HAD to buy the DVD and have never regretted doing so.

Great cd! Now while there is some previously released material on this album, don't let that discourage you. The remixes are dead on. Here's my thoughts on each track:

1. Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) - 5.0 Emily Brown, what can't she do? Act, and now sing? Yes she does a heck of a job on this song. A classic reworking that hits on all cylinders.
2. Army of Me (Sucker Punch Remix) - 4.0 Don't get me wrong, the song fits perfectly in with the movie. And the remix is cool. But not too special. Bjork screams some, and that's about it. Still though it doesn't detract from the rest of the album.
3. White Rabbit - 5.0 A song about Alice In Wonderland. It rocks. Emiliana Torrini's voice is perfect here. A dreamy rock/pop song.
4. I Want It All/ We Will Rock You (Mash Up) - 1.0 Ugh, this doesn't work with the rest of the cd in my opinion. It's a fist pumping mix of rap and classic Queen. But it sticks out like a sore thumb when compared with the rest of the dreamy rock and punk songs.
5. Search and Destroy - 4.5 Ah here we go. Jumps right back into the album's theme. Good song
6. Tomorrow Never Comes - 4.0 A very memorable song (on the movie it's the train scene/kitchen scene). This song get's stuck in my head every time I hear it. It is not dying....argh! See!
7. Where Is My Mind? - 4.5 Emily Brown sings backup to this song as well. Will stick with you long after the song ends.
8. Asleep - 4.0 Yet a third Emily Brown song! And she rocks this one as well. Slower and haunting.
9. Love is the Drug - 5.0 This song is from the final credits in the movie. And it fits in so well. Once you get done the movie you are kind of in a dark place by what you have just seen. This song is the perfect touch to bring you back up. It sounds like a big grand production. Great song and a great way to conclude the album.

Final Score: 37.0 out of 45.0
Not too shabby! With the exception of song number four this soundtrack doesn't miss a beat. I personally recommend it.

Was only a little disappointed in and aggravated at having to purchase the whole album for one song. I suppose it was worth it. Most of this soundtrack grips you; but not all. Reminds me a lot of the Cool World soundtrack for some reason. The "I Want it All" mash up is awful.

The music is as good as the movie was - made a great birthday gift to myself! I think I might skip the digital booklet next time, though it was only a fifty cent difference in price: it's basically just a pdf. And each page was essentially just the CD information with a different image from the film each time. Not terrible, but not great either. I'd have at least appreciated the lyrics and info for each track if I was going to have the booklet. Then again, more images of Babydoll and the rest aren't a problem :)
