First, to clarify a couple of things. WWF Agression is a rap-oriented CD. If you detest rap so much that you refuse to buy rap music, this is not for you. If you are expecting rock music of any kind, go somewhere else. Agression is also not the original themes of these wrestlers. If you want those, they can be found on the various WWF: The music CDs.
What we do have are numerous remixed themes of various superstars by big-time rap names, with a mixed bag result.
Here's the good: Run DMC brings in an excellent remix of the Degeneration X theme, which is probably the strongest selling point on the album. Kane and the Undertaker's themes also get star treatment, with the original elements of the songs not suffering from the addition of the rap. Big Show's theme was always a disappointment, but the remix actually improves it. "No Chance," the remix of the MacMahon family theme, was not bad, and Jericho's new theme is interesting, though I prefer the original.
And, of course, the bad: Wreck? Mankind's theme could have used some touchups, but clearly this was not the way to go. The Rock's theme is boring, though it was not completely without merit. Austin's theme gets the treatment from Snoop Dog, with a song best left for the wolves. Ice-T's version of the Godfather's theme was better live, and had little merit on the disc.
All in all, there are several songs on here that are worth it, even years afterwards. The remixes of the themes for DX, Kane, and Undertaker are by far the best on the album, but may not be enough to pique your interest.
At the other end of the spectrum, Method Man's version of The Rock's music is a lyrical masterpiece. Sure, Method Man had a lot to draw from (considering The Rock's many catch phrases), but it still represents how good a song can be if thought is given to the lyrics.
