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".

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.Read more ›

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.Published on January 14, 2013 by Brinda Chiddix

First off, no, the song in the trailers is not on this album. The album, however, isn't a total waste. I'd say slightly more than half the tracks are pretty good. Read morePublished on January 17, 2006 by Scott D. Nelson
