Customer Review

If you're like me and have been a comic book fan since childhood (especially Marvel comics), you were at the edge of your seat from beginning to end of "The Avengers." Let's face it, that movie is hands-down the greatest comic book movie ever made. Each and every movie preceding the greatest superhero team-up film in history was well worth the wait, and the movie hit the ground running up until the very end.

Now, I'm mentioning the greatness of the film to get a little perspective here. If you see a movie that absolutely blows you away, you'd expect the soundtrack that claims to have "music inspired by the motion picture" to blow you away as well, right? Sadly, such is not the case with this collection of songs. Chances are, if you bought this CD, you bought it for the first new Soundgarden song in years and for no other reason whatsoever. It's okay to admit it; they were a pretty big deal for a good long while, and they're an amazingly talented band. Unfortunately, "Live to Rise" is not nearly good enough to save this sorry collection of songs.

The only songs worth listening to on this soundtrack are Soundgarden's "Live to Rise," Shinedown's "I'm Alive," Scott Weiland's "Breathe," Bush's "Into the Blue," Evanescence's "A New Way to Bleed," and Cherri Bomb's "Shake the Ground." Rise Against's "Dirt and Roses," Black Veil Brides's "Unbroken," Redlight King's "Comeback," Pusherjones's "Count Me Out," and Buckcherry's "Wherever I Go" are simply mediocre, and Papa Roach's "Even If I Could" and Five Finger Death Punch's "From Out of Nowhere" are just terrible. It also doesn't help that the collection of bands on this soundtrack are mediocre themselves; I'm surprised, though, that Nickelback was too busy to contribute a song.

All in all, if you're considering buying this soundtrack, take my advice: Don't. It sucks. Spend your money on something else.
