Beneath the familiar red and black dragon head logo on this rare CD is an "excellent" set of 10 techno tracks dedicated to the stars of the world-renowned video game, Mortal Kombat. The music sounds very much like the electronic soundtracks used in racing games like Ridge Racer and Wipeout in the late 1990's, but it's overlaid with rapping, singing, chanting, and narration to create an adrenalin-charged cacophony of awesomeness sure to make you want to either get up and dance, or put on your ninja outfit and beat up a four-armed giant!

1. Johnny Cage (Prepare Yourself) - Crowds cheer as an announcer introduces "the blue-eyed actor from California," Mr. John Carlton, better known as Johnny Cage. Synthesized beats pulse as a male voice raps: "Be tough! Shoot your green fire! The shadow kick we all admire, is strong! Fight for your life! Mortal Kombat at the speed of light!"

2. Kano (Use Your Might) - The second track starts off with the voice from the game saying "Kano wins." Then, as the fast techno beats kick in, a woman's voice sings the praises of the victorious kombatant. "I'm on your side," she tells him, "You're the bad guy, but I feel for you." She even goes on to call him a "fallen angel." She must not have seen the Mortal Kombat movie.

3. Sub-Zero (Chinese Ninja Warrior) - This ode to the blue-vested ninja starts and ends with some gentle piano notes, with the hard synth beats in the middle. Slow singing of the words, "Ooooh, Chinese ninja warrior, with your heart so cold," is interspersed with a woman's voice screeching, "Freeeeezing vibrations!" The odd combination of serious sentiments and crazy game music makes for an interesting tribute to the mysterious masked iceman.

This Mortal Kombat CD has some of the best Techno around. I can't really compare it to any other CD's except for the Tempest 2000 soundtrack, only with more singing. Very upbeat. I recommend.

This is quite an intriguing CD. For one thing the songs are based off Mortal Kombat Characters, the first gaem mind you. Each has it's own unique style and overall it is an enjoyable CD. The tracks flow well, 4 characters than what would later be the movie theme Techno SYndrome. Than it's the last 4 (#8 being Goro) and than a techno syndrome remix.
Overall the top three tracks in my opinion are
1)Sub-Zero
2)Techno SYndrome (of Course)
3)Scorpion.
That doesn't mean the rest [aren't good], because quite frankly this is one of the few CD that you actually want to listen to all the tracks while most it's like 1 or 2 songs and thats it.

Simply put, while this is an old cd now, it is still the best techno music in the world! There isn't much else to be said about it except that it is awesome!

This album has some cool jams on it, but the some of the singing is a bit cheesy though. The Immortals can make some very good techno music, but they definetly aren't the best singers around. I still like this album though. The main Mortal Kombat theme "Techno Syndrome" is cool and makes a good workout song. Johnny Cage's theme "Prepare Yourself" is also cool. It's the perfect movie star theme. Rayden's theme "Eternal Life" was very cool and 'electrifying'. Sub Zero's song "Chinese Ninja Warrior" is slightly moving and O.K. Not my favorite though. Goro's theme "The Outworld Prince" was kind of tight. Scorpion's theme "Lost Soul Bent On Revenge" was fair. Kano's song "Use Your Might" is O.K. Lui Kang's theme "Born In China" was cool but the sound fx of Lui Kang fighting in the background is silly. The last song on the album isn't that good. But this album is good. If you like techno then you might find yourself liking this. Mortal Kombat - The Movie Soundtrack - is ten times better than this though.
