I really enjoy the way this soundtrack features all the music from the movie along with extra remixes. I felt like I got my moneys worth from this CD and highly recomend it.
One thing that the tracks on this CD carry off perfectly is the integration of vocals with the techno sound. While many techno artists seem to think that voices have to be distorted beyond recognition to fit in to techno, in this case the lyrics come through clearly. This is especially true with Franka Potente's contributions on the first track "Believe" which is worth buying the CD for just on its own.
By the way, if you haven't seen the movie, I recommend it - it's now out on video.
Wow. I first heard the music from this soundtrack when I downloaded a legendary Anime Music Video made for it's first track, Believe. The video was fantastic, but the song was what fueled it. Believe is an incredibly inspirational song about not giving up and believing in yourself, and I can't count how many times I've listened to it (the part at the end is just transcendant (you know, like when you're running so hard and so long that you don't even feel the pain anymore)). Later on I downloaded Music Videos to two of the other songs (Running Two and Running Two Remix). I enjoyed the videos and the music so much I decided that I had to own the soundtrack.
From what I understand, only the first 7 tracks are actually from the movie. That's probably the only reason I could give this awesome soundtrack less than five stars. The first seven tracks are all great. Believe is awesome, the introduction is the music I used to listen to while getting ready for work every morning (the ultimate wake-up music), Running One gets the blood pumping, Running Two puts you into overdrive (and whenever I'm REALLY tired I hear the words echoing in my head "Never never never never letting go, never giving up, never saying no. Just go go never stop and never think, just do do do do the right thing"!), Running Three is the big finale, and Casino is a great drum piece sure to keep you moving. The other tracks are kind of hit and miss.
Many of the remixes lack the polish of the music from the movie (and one even features a spine-rippling scream and breaking glass at it's start). I did enjoy the Supermarket Remix, the Running Two Remix, and the last track, Rock Me.
Overall I consider this to be an essential purchase if you like German Techno, Techno in General, or this movie's music. It's worth buying for the first 7 tracks for sure. The rest is just extras.
I wish I was a stranger who wanders down the sky..../I wish I was a starship with silence flying by..../I wish I was a princess with armies at her hand..../I wish I was a ruler who'd make them understand!
I wish I was a rider who sees what's yet unseen..../I wish I was a prayer expressing what I mean..../I wish I was a forest of trees that do not hide..../I wish I was a clearing, no secrets left inside!
Those are the (English) lyrics to the song "Wish". After I saw the FANTASTIC movie "Run Lola Run", I knew I had to get its soundtrack. I was pretty much dancing to the background music in my seat while I was watching the film! It is really impossible to sit still while listening to this soundtrack. I especially love the introduction, "Wish", "Believe", and "Supermarket". If you like loud, fast, pulsating techno music, you MUST get this CD. And if you have seen "Run Lola Run" and you don't have the soundtrack yet, you're probably just waiting for Amazon.com to deliver it!
One minor warning: The second half of the soundtrack is mostly made up of remixes of the songs of the first half. So if for some reason you don't like the first half of the soundtrack, you won't like the second.
