Actually I rate this a 4.5, but no choices for half stars. Anyways, this is an overall nice cd with some pretty good melodies/riffs/singing that I love to listen to again and again. I really like about half the songs, but the other half are pretty mediocre (they kinda sound the same to me). My absolute favos are Lacuna Coil's Our Truth (one of the main reasons I bought this cd), Chester Bennington's Morning After, Slipknot's Vermillion pt.2, and Atreyu's Her Portrait in Black. My least favo is Mendozza's Eternal Battle. And I prefer MCR's original version of To the End to this remixed version. I think this soundtrack is as good and maybe even better than the first Underworld soundtrack.

I'm a huge fan of all things Underworld. I love all three films, and all of the soundtracks that accompany them. Haslinger's original is a darkly elegant score that plays more to the films post modern sensibilities. Haslinger's third score "Rise of the Lycans" takes the post modern textures of the first score, and layers them on top of larger orchestral ensembles for a more "period drama" sound. Beltrami takes the second score, with a full on tour de force orchestra score.

I'll say upfront, this is the most organic score out of the three (by far) and you'd be missing out if you didn't buy it. I'm not going to say that it's any better than Haslinger's amazing work, but it certainly has a voice and a use of it's own. Beltrami loves experimenting with odd time signatures, wacky ensemble mixtures and classical piece structures... (in fact, a couple of pieces on this soundtrack could hail from the golden era of Hollywood.)

Highly recommended!

Usually I don't go for soundtracks. This one, however, is absolutely irresistable.

What it reminds me of is the kind of music my friends and I would listen to when we'd go clubbing in the early 90s... music reminiscent of NiN, Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, and the like. It's dark music, absolutely suited for this movie.

Since someone has already done a track by track breakdown, the only thing I can add is that if you're a fan of hard hitting music, and remixing/reworking, you'll enjoy this CD. It kind of reminds me of some of the songs on the "Queen of the Damned" soundtrack, one of three soundtracks that I own (present company included). My favorite song from that one is "Slept So Long" by Jay Gordon of "Orgy". The tone of that song reminds me of a lot of the songs on this one.

Purchase with confidence! :)

Man, I thought they couldn't top themselves after the killer soundtrack to the first Underworld a couple years ago. But, daymn, did they pull it off again!

The premiere solo track from Linkin's Chester, first new Maynard track in 2 years, My Chemical Romance remix by Danny from Nine Inch Nails and Wes from Limp...the list just goes on and on! In fact, every song I hear is exclusive to this record. Kudos to the producers and all the artists that stepped up and recorded some of their best 'ish for Underworld:evolution!

This soundtrack was ok but the main reason I purchased it was due to the theme from the first movie soundtrack by Haslinger track named eternity and a day. There are 2 specific scenes in Underworld Evolution that contained a more extended version of this theme. First in the love scene and last the very end of the film a pivitol revelation and the music was great but when I listened to this album it was totally missing. Now the composer for this soundtrack is different from the first so maybe that had something to do with it. But I was very disappointed. I actually gave props for the first movie score because the song played through the trailers not in the film was added to the soundtrack which I rarely see so I was shocked when I got this album and those segments were missing. I still strive to get those segments but if you are looking for that theme beware it's not.

*** 1/11/07- I wanted to add some reviewer commented the music that many have heard as a theme that is not on this soundtrack mentioned it can be found on the first soundtrack. YES it is on the first Underworld soundtrack called "Eternity and a day" but in Underworld evolution it was EXTENDED and more instrumentation and it is NOT on this soundtrack and not the same version in the first album.

Composer Marco Beltrami (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines; Hellboy; I, Robot (Score)) picks up where Paul Haslinger (the composer from the original Underworld movie) left off, and lets the audience have it. With his penchant for melodic themes amidst complex action cues, Beltrami soars to new heights and plummets to new depths. Track 12 "Truckin'" is the cue to sample, with its orchestral assault and fantastic seven-beat charge. The album adds two original songs at the end, including a cover of Nine Inch Nails' "Something I Could Never Have" by up-and-comers Flyleaf.

the movie set the tone, the soundtrack delivered the energy. when i first previewed the album on the underworld evolution myspace website, i was blown away by Atreyu's "Her Portrait in Black." that signifies everything the film is and captures the image of the lead character, Selene, in all her glory. there are some songs that shouldn't have been touched up or remixed. like MCR's remixing of "To The End," it's just an abomination. the overall mood of the album is directed towards gothic influenced/inspired music. not to say this album is a goth album, it's just driven that way because of the film. the opening track is hauntingly effective. the final track differs so much from the opening, that you can basically tell what's in the middle. this album was produced like a good book. the first and last tracks show you what the content it wraps around is going to be like. regardless of if you like screamo/metalcore/darkwave, this album will suit all your needs. Lakeshore Records released their best soundtrack to date.
