Editorial Reviews

The Transporter, the movie, was a Top 5 box office action smash. In the sequel, Jason Statham returns in his signature role as ex-Special Forces operative Frank Martin, aka "The Transporter." Now "retired" in Miami, Frank makes a living as a driver for a wealthy family, including their young son, with whom he has unexpectedly bonded. But when the boy is abducted you just know Frank is going to take action. He uses all of his special skills to bring the boy to safety and discover the kidnapper's master plan.

Musically, the soundtrack to Transporter 2 features just the sort of driving music you'd expect to propel a top notch action flick. First up to kick some ass is cast member Kate Nauta, who checks in with the funk rocking "Revolution." From the UK, the Servant first got attention in the U.S. via the much demanded instrumental for the "Sin City" movie trailer. That song, "Cells", was unavailable on the "Sin City" soundtrack and is present here in its vocal version. It combines a moody trip hop instrumental track with upbeat Oasis/Electric Light Orchestra type choruses and joins a second song by The Servant, "Body," on this cd. From France via Indonesia, beautiful songstress Anggun contributes "Saviour"--she's been an international music lovers favorite since her consistently superb 1998 cd, "Snow On The Sahara". Next it's off to the Isle of Skye, Scotland where electronic dance music wizard Mylo hails from. "Paris Four Hundred," from 2004's "Destroy Rock & Roll" release, showcases his diverse influences which range from Daft Punk and Prince to the Scissor Sisters. Refusing to stick to one basic style, the mid-20s Mylo was called "Scotland's answer to Royksopp" by England's "The Face" magazine. Perhaps the best known artist here is France's acclaimed "abstract hip hop" DJ Cam with "Voodoo Child Starring Afu Ra" remixed by Gangstarr's own DJ Premier. And Sin bring the almost mandatory industrial track with the appropriate "Painful".

Rounding out the TVT Records soundtrack are two bonus tracks from new artists, The Strays and The Cinematics. Tiny Dingwall, Scotland is the home to the Cinematics, who bring their Stephen Hague (Blur, New Order) produced big pop/rock sound on "Chase." The Strays came from Athens, London and Los Angeles to record the rocking "Life Support".

3.0 out of 5 stars commercial song January 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Actually, the song on the commercial IS "The Slam" by Tobymac. I just saw the commercial and came to see if it was on the soundtrack. Unfortuneately its not. But i just thought i'd let you know, that it is Tobymac not POD even though it kinda sounds like POD, the part in the commercial says..."this is the SLAM this is the one..." so there ya go

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing July 21, 2006
By Hsmog
Format:Audio CD
First, the positive aspects of this soundtrack. Unlike the first Transporter soundtrack, for the second movie there is only one, not two separate soundtracks (a "music inspired by" and the original soundtrack) and results in less frustration. Unlike the first soundtrack ("music inspired by", the only one sold in the US), this one actually contains some of the score that the composer used in the movie and isn't all hip-hop. Most of whom bought the original "music inspired by" soundtrack for The Transporter felt highly disappointed because they thought it contained the score, which it didn't and had little to do with the feel of the movie. You can only get the original soundtrack for The Tranporter online (it isn't sold here in the States).

Secondly, the cons. The sequel differed dramatically from the original in terms of overall style and feel. This was carried over to the soundtrack. Unlike the score by Stanley Clarke that sounded like a James Bond movie and the fantastic beats by DJ Pone & Drixxxe found in the first movie's soundtrack, the sequel's soundtrack is less instrumental when compared with the original, and there is only one DJ track with lyrics. The Transporter 2 soundtrack instead has more rock like tracks (pardon me if it isn't exactly rock or hip-hop, I find the neverending classifications of music nowadays to be overly complicated). You should also know that 3 of the songs in the Transporter 2's soundtrack was played during the credits, which felt irrelevant. Watch the original movie, and Nadia's "Life of a Stranger" fits in with the movie perfectly at the end, unlike the sequel's, which felt like it couldn't wait for the movie to be over with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Soundtrack! December 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the most satisfying soundtracks I own. It's great for driving and working out! If you like the Transporter series, and you like hard-rock music with a bit of alternative and techo flavour, then you should love the Transporter 2 soundtrack.

This is an interesting video soundtrack and has been listened to a lot by me, Dave, Brinda's husband. I got tired of it and threw it away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't find a song from movie November 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am looking for the orchestral song when he is on the chase on the highway above water. It definitely has a signature sound to it and I may have heard it before? It only plays for a little bit and I cannot seem to find it! Other than that, this disc has about 2 other songs that are good to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Little-known songs November 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The CD has songs that do not appear in the movie ... and those that appear are very short. I would have liked the instrumental music was more extensive.
