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

Despite what the movie may say about buying products to make your life better and make you a better person, buying this CD WILL make you a better person. Why? Because you're giving your ears something different to listen to instead of the same old, same old that gets repeated without remorse on the radio. You'll be expanding your mind; you'll be opening it to new experiences in creative music.
When listening to the "Fight Club" soundtrack, your mind will conjure the scenes of the film, placing the events to the music that intertwine to please your mind. It's most certainly a different arrangement of music than most film soundtracks, but "Fight Club" wasn't most films.
Beware before you hit any "purchase" button or trek off to your local CD store: the US release of the "Fight Club" soundtrack does not feature the 16th track "This Is Your Life," featuring music by the Dust Brothers and spoken dialogue by Brad Pitt; the Australian release contains that track. If you loved the movie, you don't want to pass that little factoid up. Also, the song that closes the film and accompanies the closing credits in a "Dr. Stragelove"-type fashion cannot be found on this CD. The song featured in the closing credits is "Where Is My Mind?" by The Pixies. Look for it on The Pixies "Surfer Rosa" release.
Buy this CD.
Your ears will thank you.

AWESOME. The Dust Bro's do a wonderful job adding to the layers of dementia, dark humor, sensuality and catharsis in the film. Those guys sampled everything. I even heard a smidgen of music from the game "Starcraft," one of the creepy Zerg background themes: it echoes during the scene where Norton not-so-subtly threatens his boss with disgruntled attention...

now tehn, everyone points out the Pixies omission; "Where is My Mind," from their second album, Surfer Rosa. It closes the film brilliantly when the buildings are collapsing... Great tune, excellently used, ends the movie perfectly! BUT. No one seems to recall the use of Tom Waits' "Goin' Out West," fom the scene where Tyler, jack and Co. are walking through the bar (steady-cam?), down to the basement. Great song, from his '92 album, Bone Machine. Both songs would have been nice for the mix, as would some of the great dialogue. This is, afterall, a film that positively overflows with classic quips and one-liners. And the one-liners are more like Zen koans than one-liners! Looses a star cuz it could have been better, more comphrehensive...

That said, this is a great collection of ominous beats and weirdo-freaked out, instrumental funk. Great Cd to work out to. Even though, as the man says, "Self improvement is masturbation..." Yeah, but that's easy to say when you're Brad Pitt, and you've got Brad Pitt's abs...

There's something about Fight Club that says that a traditional, classical score wouldn't quite fit in with the whole atmosphere of the movie. I guess that's part of the whole anti-corporate message of the movie. One thing that the soundtrack will make you do is make you go back and watch the film afterward you listen to it to see where all the music fits in. The best was the Corporate World track, which was from the scene where they go through Jack's apartment and point out all the Ikea furniture, catalog style. It's also in the menus on the DVD. Also, Homework was another good track from my favorite scene in the movie. As is Raymond K. Hessel, from the scene where Tyler holds the convienience store clerk at gunpoint. You wont recognize the whole songs, only because snippets of each song are are played throughout each. Though, the song titles tell you where each of the songs are in the movie. What's interesting is the fact that the soundtrack doesn't follow the movie from start to finish.
On this soundtrack, the Dust Brothers prove that electronic music CAN be good, unlike corporate-contrived electronic music like Prodigy. I don't own too many soundtracks, but this one is awesome. I bought it after practically memorizing the movie. And, yes, I will point out that the track from the closing credits is not on this. They should've included it, maybe at the end of the soundtrack, or on a bonus disc. The track is "Where Is My Mind" by the Pixies. It's an awesome song, and it fit right in with the rest of the soundtrack.

While throughly enjoying "Fight Club" in the movie theater, the urge to immediately buy this soundtrack once the movie ended was on the forefront of my mind. Especially for the final track at the end of the film, what I was to soon learn was the elusive track 16. My thrill of purchasing the Dust Brothers CD (which is brilliant, mind you) was suddenly dampened by that haunting track obviously missing from the lineup. Some quick searching on the internet, on an unoffical website no less, turned up that this same song was used in some of the film trailers, and was called, "Where is My Mind" by the Pixies. It is from their album "Surfer Rosa", and I had to special order it because it was from 1986 or something. But that is where you will find that incredible song! Now back to the Dust Brothers...I listen to this CD in my car ALL THE TIME...so much in fact, that I know each track by heart - Corporate World, Medula Oblongata, and Marla would have to be my ultimate favorites on the CD (the Pixies song of course being THE BEST!) Major Peeve...don't you just hate it when a song used in the movie or in the movie trailer, is missing from the released soundtrack? Well, fortunately...you can now locate track 16! Enjoy this soundtrack, even if you can't locate the Pixies!
