The Dust Brothers are best known as the production duo that everyone from the Beastie Boys to Beck and White Zombie have turned to for help behind the mixing board (and to great results). With the soundtrack to Fight Club (the movie based on the Chuck Palahniuk novel), we finally get a glimpse of one of the duo's original creations. Filled with dark techno and sparse industrial passages, it's a bleak though interesting listen. Sinister funk gives way to medieval chants on "Homework," but the bulk of this disc is all about samples and synths. Don't expect to find the quirks of Paul's Boutique or Odelay here, but in terms of good movie mood music, the Dust Brothers have done it again. --Jason Verlinde

That said, I still give it five stars, hands-down.
Some tracks take a while to get used to , but when you listen to the CD as a whole and think of what the movie is about, it works very well. A nice combination of edgy, abrassive tracks and the truly somber. Like the movie, it's sobering (if not a little scary).
I normally don't care for industrial or "electric grunge" music, but this is something different. Something more carefully crafted than anything I've ever heard in a dance club, anyway. You may not listen to it all the time, but I think most people would be glad to have it in their collection if they listen to other genres that are similar. Definitely Recommended.
