Headphones could well be the way to go on initial spins, simply because Oakenfold's mix is spiced with the sort of celluloid nuances and attentions that are big enough to make this different from, say, Perfecto Presents Another World, but smooth enough to be enjoyable once properly processed. It's stealthy, imaginative, and more varied than a single listen might suggest. --Steffan Chirazi

It's "High Voltage" by Frank Popp.
If you can forgive the preceding lengthy tangent, my point is to clarify that "Swordfish" is not one of those annoying 'marketing tools'. Furthermore, it capitalizes almost entirely on modern musical technology to score the film, and most effectively. The guy in charge may be a newcomer to motion picture work, but he's certainly not unknown by any means. Paul Oakenfold is the biggest DJ on the planet. He's remixed and produced some of the most prominent names in music, and his Perfecto record label has been a goldmine, both musically and financially, for over a decade.Read more ›
This has happened to me many times, the most recent being the lack-luster 'The Fast and the Furious' soundtrack. Fortunately, Paul Oakenfold's "Swordfish - The Album" does not fall into this pit. If the thought of buying "The Album" to a movie is making your skin crawl, don't worry. I felt the same way too, until I popped this disc in and pressed play.
Though the voice-overs thrown into the CD make absolutely no sense (they made little sense in the movie, and even less on the CD), they sound 'hip.' Fortunately, there are only two on the CD. The rest of the CD however, is a mixed bag of underground electronica. A few of the tracks are remixes dance/disco tracks, and sound rather strange when thrown up there with the new pseudo-trance/house tracks that Oakenfold worked up for this project. But fear not, because his shadowy and effective sounds shine through in this CD, with some strong songs, and several simply awesome tracks. Paul Oakenfold's remix of Jan Johnston's "Unafraid" is simply mind-blowing, and really accelerates the feel of this CD. It then jumps into Oakie's "Dark Machine", a dark and deep piece that almost feels like electronic jazz in it's movement. I would love to go into detail on all of the excellent tracks on this CD (Speed, Get Out of My Life Now, The Chase), but boring the reader to death is not my intention, so i'll quiet myself now.
Perhaps the only flaws on this CD are the strange voice-overs, the occasional song that truly breaks the flow of the CD (Lemon Jelly's song, and the equally strange "Lapdance" really should not have been included on the CD) and the lack of Oakenfold mixing.Read more ›
