4.0 out of 5 stars Surprise, Surprise, May 26, 2003
This review is from: The Matrix Reloaded (Audio CD)
The soundtrack obviously fails to measure up to the original (which kicked musical arse!), but the score is magnificent.
At first sight I couldn't believe they'd put Linkin Park on here. The song, after a listen or two, is actually decent, with a cool mix of dark industrial beat and churchlike organ which gives it a heavy sci-fi mood. Linkin Park fans might feel the band is misrepresented, but I like the choice.
The Marylin Manson song made me laugh. It's explicit but funny.
Rob Zombie's contribution is horrible. It's shallow and repetitive, and not half as good as his previous work. "Lucky You" by Deftones is equally disappointing.
"Calm Like a Bomb" and "Bruises" were good choices.
The techno songs..."Passportal" and "Dread Rock" seemed old and probably took no effort to make. Fluke's "Zion", however, is atmospheric, sexy and fits in perfectly.
"When the World Ends" and "Furious Angels" are by far the best choices on the album. They're haunting and beautiful. These songs make the album worth it.
The score is AWESOME and extremely creative. Stomping electronic beats smash into enormous, soaring orchestra along with freaky sound effects and big, fast-paced sound. The tribal drums in "Teahouse" lend an exciting, action-packed beat. "Chateau" is a familiar revisit of the exact same chord sequence from "Clubbed to Death". "Burly Brawl" and "Overdrive" will knock your socks off. Don Davis outdid himself. If you liked "Spybreak!" from the Matrix fight scene, you'll enjoy the heck out of this score.
I gave it 3 stars out of five, but the score gives it that extra star.
