4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack Feb. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
Proof that director John Carpenter's metal-esque influence on the musical scores to his films is ever prominant; the soundtrack to his 1996 film Escape From L.A. further illustrates this point. White Zombie's "The One" is a ripping track that makes this compilation an absolute must have for White Zombie fans the world over, while Stabbing Westward's "Dawn", Tool's "Sweat", Gravity Kills' "Blame", Clutch's "Escape From the Prison Planet", and the Deftones' "Can't Even Breathe" are all standout tracks. Sugar Ray's "10 Seconds Down" is a must hear just to hear that this band was actually half decent before they succombed to the world of pop radio, while Ministry's "Paisley" finds the band at their sludgey "Filth Pig" era stage. Tori Amos is an odd artist to be featured here to say the least, but her "Professional Widow" cut is a good listen. All in all, the Escape From L.A. soundtrack is definitely worth picking up for metalheads and industrial buffs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better June 30 1998
By emcgarvie@curtin.edu.au - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off - this isnt a soundtrack CD. No sir. What it is, is a group of songs 'Inspired by' Escape from LA, and a collection of 3 or 4 that had 3-4 second bits in the movie.
When I bought this CD - I had seen LA the day before - and all I wanted to do was listen to the theme that plays at the end when the satellites go off... that theme that just gets under your skin...
But was it on the CD? No... which is VERY annoying - and since half the songs werent even in the movie... very dissapointing...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album July 6 1998
By Bryan Schingle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It is true, this album may not have too many songs from the movie (there is a second album with the title song, etc.), but it still has some great tracks. White Zombie's "The One" is excellent, followed by Sugar Ray's "10 Seconds Down", which is another good song. My advice, preview the album before you buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some bright spots, some cloudy. Nov. 1 2000
By sc_demandred - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ironically, this soundtrack fails in the same way that it succeeds. A paradox? Maybe. Here's the breakdown:
I'm a huge White Zombie / Rob Zombie fan. When this soundtrack was released, there was only one song on it that I really cared about: "The one". I had heard it live at a Zombie / Pantera show in SF a month prior, and the song just ripped up the audience.
To my delight, the record contained a bunch of songs by some of my favorite bands; Tool, Ministry, Clutch and Sugar Ray. Sadly, not enough of these were new or very good tracks. "Paisley" is indicative of the turgid sludge that Ministry has become, no fire or wit or power. "Cut me out" shows little of the catchy yet ominous style that made "Possum Kingdom" a hit. I already had "Sweat" (tool) "Escape from the Prison Planet", "Professional Widow" (Tori Amos) and "Fire in the Hole" (orange 9mm) on CD, so this stdk was really a re-hash. The tracks that stuck out for me were "10 Seconds Down", a monster rock track by Sugar Ray at the height of their rocking-ness, "The One", a classic Zombie track, and "Foot on the Gas" by a band I had never heard of before and have never heard from since called Sexpod. the Deftones track was OK. The Stabbing Westward song was as weak as all of their post-UNGOD material.
I think soundtracks succeed most often when they include rare tracks or good remixes of songs we already know. All the people who were likely to buy this soundtrack probably already had most of the songs on it, and that never works (you can tell by the wealth of reviews on this page!). I'm sure it didn't help that the movie tanked royally, and most people will miss a couple great songs.
4.0 out of 5 stars pretty decent soundtrack Nov. 12 2005
By Drain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
this soundtrack is one of those soundtracks that stands out just a bit better than the movie. for me, this cd is pretty good with only 5 tracks that are kinda weak. i thought the ministry track "paisely" was great. going into this really deep depressing sound that ministry rarely ever visits. "the one" shows white zombie ultizing a rare keyboard usage that is fantastic. "10 seconds down" while already previously released on sugar ray's debut "lemonade & brownies", it's nice to have it without the tie-in to "danzig needs a hug". "dawn" is just one of those stabbing westward songs you'll either love or hate, personally, i love it myself. it's slow and at times hard and pounding. and then theres the deftones track. a gem that was unjustly left on their b-sides album. if anything, this warrants a buy for that tracks alone. i could on forever singing the praises of the songs that i thought were good that make this a rarity worth buying...but i won't. it's better to get a taste and decide for yourself.
