Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The soundtrack for a film with no music? Yes, it's true. Josh's Blair Witch Mix takes the high concept of "music inspired by the film" to new extremes: this is the mix tape found in Josh's car on the fateful night the "documentary" was filmed. Whatever the case, Josh's is filled with the doom-and-gloom sounds of vintage goth and industrial tracks and the occasional "scared silly" movie sound bites. It's a strong compilation with classic tunes by Lydia Lunch, P.I.L., Bauhaus, the Creatures, Front Line Assembly, and others. The included enhanced CD video snippet contains footage not found in the actual film. Ironic: one thing that makes The Blair Witch Project so believable is the fact that it lacks the typical clichéd horror-movie sound effects. Luckily, this "soundtrack" is far from clichéd and every bit as creative as its movie counterpart. The only thing creepier would be if Josh had been listening to a tape of smooth jazz.... --Jason Verlinde

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Soundtrack, but a Companion Piece July 23, 2001
Format:Audio CD
A Soundtrack to a movie with no music? No, this is not some shallow attempt to cash in on a successful film (surprisingly), but rather a very good goth-industrial compilation disc. In the context of the film, one of the doomed kids put together a mix tape to put them in the mood as they headed out to the woods to make their ill-fated documentary. This CD is that mix, and it couples with the movie and the website (blairwitch.com) very nicely to create a true multimedia experience. Even if you haven't seen the movie, the CD stands on its own as a great goth- industrial sampler if you want to know more about that kind of music. Also, the film's haunting closing credit music is included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible frightening...just like the movie... July 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I saw the movie and found it to be a chilling psychological terror that I think sets a standard for horror films and films in general (if only it really was a true story like some people still think...it's not in case you don't know)...The music is a perfect blend of some of the best gothic rock and industrial music ever written. Lydia Lunch's goth-jazz "Gloomy Sunday" is a great way to open the album. "The Order of Death" by Public Image Ltd. (a.k.a. the Sex Pistols go electrogloom) is a great reminder of the advent of synthesizers in goth music, while Skinny Puppy is just a great way to remember how bands like Nine Inch Nails got their ideas from. The same can be said for Laibach sounding like Rammstein (Laibach had been doing that kind of music before Rammstein ever did, so expect to hear accents and hard pounding germanic metal). Bauhaus and Tones On Tail (they may as well be the same band) also provide some great eighties goth that fits the mood of the movie really well, and Siouxsie Sioux's vocals on The Creatures' "Don't Go To Sleep Without Me" is a great clincher for the movie (i.e. Alien's "In space no one can hear you scream."). Type O Negative's epic "Haunted" is by far not only the best song on the soundtrack, but also one of the finest moments in electronic/industrial music...a true masterpiece. Meat Beat Manifesto's "She's Unreal" almost sounds like it could be the Witch's theme song, while the Front Line Assembly's "Laughing Pain" sounds a little like Circle of Dust...but again, they did that sorta stuff first. Afghan Whigs' song didn't impress me, but the last track did. Antonio Cora's "score" piece for the movie is nothing more than five minutes of creaks and scary noises... Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy.....very creepy. July 31, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Ok. The movie was ultra-creepy. I just saw it. I know. The website is quite creepy. And this soundtrack (even though it has only one or two selections actually FROM the movie) is yes...creepy, very creepy. All goth bands and coffinrock (hmmm Coffin Rock, that's a place in the movie....) and sound bytes from the film, it delivers the chills even after you have left the movie theater. Long after. Lots of weird songs and sounds here. Perfect for reminiscing or just mood music when you're playing an eerie game like Doom. I personally like this kind of music and am already quite fond of the CD which features the likes of Skinny Puppy, Bauhaus, and Type O Neg. However...If you don't like Gothic music or the movie, you probably shouldn't get this CD. It isn't going to appeal to everyone, so I gave it a 4 out of five. It's a must-have, though for fans of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, albeit miscategorized. September 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The CD on itself is excellent- true, it was a marketing ploy to say it was "Josh's Mix" but hey, we can't go around pretending money doesn't make the world revolve. Would I buy this CD even if it weren't labelled "Blair Witch"? Probably, if there had been a way to know about it. Let's face it, connecting the movie to the CD was a way to get exposure. If you like bouncy-prancy Top 40 Hits music, you're going to most likely despise this CD. With wonderful classics like Bauhaus and Skinny Puppy, if you're into the electronica/"goth" genre you'll love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lets all calm down about the obvious merchandising....... December 13, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Having Skimmed through the 50-something reviews for this album , one thing that becomes immediatley apparant is that the reviewers (you know who you are)focus far too much on the concept of the album , as opposed to its content. All of us who have seen the film , and many more who haven't , do realise that there is no music within the film and , yes, that the idea of an 'insired by' album is bound to have more commercial undertones than artistic production , but what many people seem to be missing is that the album is in fact quite good. Its not brilliant , but its lack of prescence in the movie doesn't merit giving it one star. The majority of the tracks represent an adequate enough expanse of gothic and industrial rock , highlights being Lydia Lunch's gloomy ballad , and Bauhaus , downsides being Laibachs ridicuously overwrought 'God is God' anthemn and Skinny Puppy. Its not superb , but its not terrible either. Its all about the music remember , not the packaging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent selection of tracks October 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I loved this CD at the first listen. The tracks by PIL, Meat Beat Manifesto, Front Line Assembly and Lydia Lunch are excellent. The soundbytes of the movie placed between some of the songs really make you shiver! Try listening to this one with the lights out.
