Loved the movie and one of the main reasons was this soundtrack. Sound tracks, in my opinion can make or break a movie. In Bullet you feel like you're in New Awlins and the atmosphere, set primarily by the hard edged delta blues, grabs you and puts you there. The great taste of the Bulleit Bourbon also helps in this regard. If you haven't tried this nectar you should.

Mazzaro's capturing of the stoic nature of conflict between a man of honor versus opponents lacking values is Cajun flavored Creole musique de gumbo. It's hypnotic, controlled tempo is constantly laced with a call-to-arms like cry demanding an answer. Much as Eric Serra's "Leon" gave us Marseille's flavored exotic beats with hints of North African calls to dance with the demons of NYC Mazzaro has wrapped his themes around the protagonist who stalks his prey. The repetition is as unrelenting as the hunt. The tempo is as driven as is the protagonist without wavering from doubt nor troubled by fear. This Zen-like composition of brief brush strokes is unified by these components into a flowing mood to accompany this unique journey thru Orlean Parish & thereabouts to its conclusion. This piece can easily stand with John Carpenter's iconic works supporting a character and exceeds them in its captivating power & focus of purpose. Like good rye bourbon it is savored straight-sipped without a chaser.

Mobs, hit men, murder…what else would one expect with a title like Bullet to the Head? And let’s face it, Sylvester Stallone isn’t exactly known as a gentle dramatic actor. While director Walter Hill could’ve easily chosen a more predominant or popular composer for the musical score to an action thriller in this vein, he decided upon Steve Mazzaro. Having worked as a sequencer on The Dark Knight Rises with Hans Zimmer, and as a composer assisting Lorne Balfe on Assassin’s Creed III, Mazzaro was awarded the chance to score his first feature with Bullet to the Head. All in all, his work turns out to be a refreshing take on modern scoring for similar films.

Opening track “Here’s the Story” immediately introduces the resounding theme to be used throughout the score, and its sound is somewhat unexpected: a slow, bluesy, southern rock akin to a stripped-down Lynyrd Skynyrd or perhaps George Thorogood sans horns. It’s very unexpected and pleasing, really digging itself into the listener with its prodding drums and tradeoff guitar and harmonica solos. Second track “Staying in the Game” maintains a similar template while introducing the other primary musical element of Bullet to the Head: soothing guitar reverb with scant melodic guitar plucking and strumming. The blues/rock and reverb interplay is used very consistently in later tracks, but in spite of its only slight lack of variation, the revisiting of either element is surprisingly welcome.

The pattern shortly deviates in a few places, like in sixth track “The Fox and the Hound,” where the pace of the percussion quickens a bit but soon jumps into the more typical fare of the score, before breaking into an interesting tango structure.

very disappointed. not worth the money. there's really only maybe three songs on the cd. at least that's what it sounds like. loved the movie and in the movie the music grabbed me enough for me to buy the CD - which i do not do anymore. but...not worth it as a stand alone.

I am very impressed with Steve Mazzaro's soundtrack for this film. Definitely picked the right sound for the film. This rock-like sound really pulls out the "badass" aspect of Sly Stallone.
