Product Description

Blade ~ Blade 2

Amazon.com

The rap-rock-electronic collaboration has become a mainstay of the industry. Yet as cool as it is to hook up artists from disparate genres, sometimes these fusions look better on paper than they actually sound. Not so this project, which finds A-list rappers (Busta Rhymes, Bubba Sparxx, Rah-Digga, et al.) joining forces with topnotch electronica heavyweights like Crystal Method and Roni Size. There's much to dig here, but there are a few glaring missteps. Witness "Cowboy," in which the flamboyance of Fat Boy Slim's rubbery funk only underscores Eve's lyrical weaknesses. Also iffy is "Getting Aggressive," which reduces Mystikal to background noise underneath Moby's intrusive onslaught of rhythm. Better balance is found on Mos Def and Massive Attack's intense cover of Bad Brains' "I Against I"; a ghetto-fab but gritty partnership between Jadakiss, Fabolous, and Danny Saber; and Gorillaz and Redman's giddy "Gorillaz on My Mind." Credit everyone involved for delivering a soundtrack album that is much more than tie-in product. --Amy Linden

This soundtrack fits Blade 2 quite well. Some of these songs are so well integrated into the movie that it's easy to think the song was designed around the scene.
I definitely esteem this album as a higher quality and better value than the soundtrack to "Queen of the Damned," "Swordfish," "The One," et al.
I was tempted to give this album 3 of 5 stars, for two reasons:
1) I would rather not have "Cowboy" or "Gettin' Aggressive" on the album. I don't feel they contribute toward a better album, but rather work against it.
2) There are two songs that never made it into the soundtrack, songs that I feel were better than the two aforementioned songs. The consensus that these songs were good and should be included combined with the consensus that they are better than a couple of songs that did make their way into the album only goes to show you how much better this album could have been.
Songs from Blade 2 that were not in the soundtrack:
"Cold Blood" (Voodoo & Serano meet CJ Stone) -- From the vampire rave / club scene.
"Name of the Game" (The Crystal Method) -- From the Blade vs. prod-wielders scene.

The best part of this movie is the dance club shootout, and before the actual shootout they play the song Blood is Pumpin(Cold Blood Remix) which is one of the best techno songs ever, and it's not even on this CD!! Disapointment!

The concept behind the soundtrack to BLADE II is simple: take some high-profile hip-hop artists and some equally high-profile electronica artists, and have them make music. This idea is nothing groundbreaking, since the two genres frequently mixed in their early days (listen to Afrika Bambaataa if you don't believe me). However, if you think about it, the intricacies of their genre mean that electronica artists are probably better viewed as bands than merely producers, which is something most hip-hop artists aren't used to dealing with.
I say "most" because that description obviously doesn't apply to the Roots, whose lead rapper Black Thought knows how to divide the listener's attention between his rapping and the music of the rest of his band. It should come as no surprise, then, that his collaboration with BT, "Tao Of The Machine," is far and away the best song on the soundtrack.
Similarly, all of the songs that succeed do so because there is a sense that the rappers realize that they are working with fellow artists who have talents that at times deserves the full attention of the listener. Redman does a great job with "Gorillaz On My Mind," which is the best remix of Gorillaz' "19-2000" out there, and Bubba Sparxxx & The Crystal Method's "PHDream" is a pretty interesting take on a track from TCM's 2001 album, TWEEKEND.
Unfortunately, the flaws that do exist on this album are rather obvious. None of the tracks are bad, mind you, but some of them sound no different from ordinary hip-hop tracks (most notably "The One"). For someone who expects a departure from standard hip-hop soundtracks, this is a dissappointment.
Still it's a reasonably good deal, since only one track is taken directly from an album ("Right Here, Right Now" is available on Oakenfold's BUNKKA), and the good tracks are really, REALLY good.

As it turns out, I was one of many looking for "Blood is Pumpin" (the track played in the club scene before the shoot out), and it's not on the sountrack. Why would they leave one of the best hard-house songs off of this CD?

The only songs I like on the whole CD where 1, 4, and 5. As for the CLUB SONG everyone is looking for it is "Blood Is Pumpin" by Voodoo & Serano. The version that is played in Blade 2 is the FUTURE MIX.

Like other reviewers I liked a lot of the music from the film. but having listened to samples of the album I couldn't find that one stunning track that was used in the film (night club or fight scene ?). So I didn't buy it :(

Have since found the track though, it's called Clubbed to Death by Rob Duggan - Fantastic. :)

Tweaking the formula of the earlier Spawn soundtrack album, which featured rock artists collaborating with electronic music artists, this soundtrack features rappers collaborating with electronic music artists. The songs, even the ones not used in the actual film, were a good fit to the darkness of the movie itself.

I personally think the rap-techno mixture has a lot of potential and hope to see a great deal more of this in the future. Up until now the only tracks that spring to mind as good examples of this genre cross-over are Snap's 'rythm is a dancer' from the early 90s and some of Leftfield's work including 'Dusted' with Roots Manurva. This is perhaps the first album that presents a decent array of such tracks. Hopefully it will lead to more in the future. The album does suffer from having on it a few poorly chosen tracks. Some tracks lack the atmosphere that is naturally created when rap meets techno. Fatboy Slim is not a techno artist in my book and his summer-bouncy party tune does not work well with an overrated cliched rapper like Eve. I couldnt work out why the gorillaz track was here either- good though it is- it doesnt really fit in with the album's mood. I was also a little unsure about Buppy's bonus track. Luckily there are some real gems. I love 'I against I' and 'Tao of the machine' the most, while all the rest of the tracks make for some great, interesting listening. Its just a shame there is no congruity.
