Product Description

Amazon.ca

Godzilla's return to the big screen mixes old and new; this monster of a flick infuses '90s special effects into the classic tale of a lizard gone awry. In effect, the movie's soundtrack embraces a similar resurrection: established artists either breathing new life into well-worn tunes or showcasing exclusive tracks and new lineups. And, like the movie, the soundtrack only succeeds on certain levels. The Wallflowers' recording of David Bowie's "Heroes" (the album's single) is hardly groundbreaking, and the predictable Puffdaddy treatment to Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" drags on. The Foo Fighters, here in their first recording to feature new guitarist Franz Stahl, take a mellow pop tromp. Ben Folds Five's "Air" and Green Day's "Brain Stew," the latter remixed especially for Godzilla, are the album highlights. As the saying goes, sometimes bigger isn't better. --Jason Verlinde

By Mike London TOP 100 REVIEWER

This review was written in late 1998 or early 1999. I posted the review back when it was originally written but the review never appeared. This should have been one of the oldest, if not the oldest, review of this product on Amazon. It was issued on Amazon.co.uk on January 21, 2001. So, over a decade (twelve years in fact) after it was completed, here is my review of GODZILLA: THE SOUNDTRACK. It should be known that I have not heard this soundtrack since the late 1990s with the exception of "Come With Me" which is on my iPod. I have NEVER seen the movie. I remember "Undercover" being a somewhat funny, rather ridiculous song. I still stand by what I said in the original review though, even after over a decade of not having heard the album, that this was a soundtrack caculated slowly at reaching as many different type of markets as possible, and the record feels disjointed and does not flow. Very bad album, though the individual songs themselves (most of them) are actually pretty good.

Godzilla: The Album Review
[There's a lot of great music out there with high integrity]...and this ain't it. Good album ... from the commercial standpoint. This album is pure product, nothing more. (Which, by the way, is what is ruined about Beatles for Sale). A few people have praised it for the variety of music contained therein. Sorry, on this record, not a strong point. It was just a blatant cash-in. Wallflower's cover of Heros costed $500,000. That is how much they paid the band. This was widely criticized in the recording industry.

ANYWAY, THIS IS A VERY GOOD SOUNDTRACK. I AGREE, THE MOVIE WAS TERRIBLE. BUT, THE SOUNDTRACK HAD SOME GOOD MUSIC ON IT. THE BEST TRACKS ARE P. DIDDY'S ''COME WITH ME'', FUEL'S ''WALK THE SKY'', GREEN DAY'S ''BRAIN STEW'' REMIX, AND THE FOO FIGHTERS' ''A320''. FORGET ABOUT THE MOVIE, BUY THE SOUNDTRACK TODAY. TRUST ME, THERE'S PLENTY OF GOOD MUSIC TO BE FOUND ON HERE.

3.0 out of 5 stars One big green mess of genres Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
GODZILLA was the biggest disappointment of 1998. THE ALBUM isn't much better, sporting a variety of genres - most of which are tracks that have nothing to do with the film.
The album opens with The Wallflowers' "Heroes", which has nothing to do with the film (see?!) and isn't that great. Then we have beat-stealer Puff Daddy's "Come With Me", a very good song with a heavy beat stolen from Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir". One of, if not the, greatest song on the album is Green Day's remix of "Brain Stew", a terrific song with a cool sound that sounds like the story of some stoned teen waking up for school. My favorite song of the CD, however, is Ben Folds Five's awesome "Air", a great song that starts off calmly, then goes to a cool, casual beat, and finally to a pumped-up rock beat.
Overall, if you like those songs or are a fan of the artists on the CD, pick it up. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars one of those soundtracks... Dec 28 2003
By Matt O.
Format:Audio CD
Every once in a while, there comes along a soundtrack that is exponentially better than the film it is featured in. This is one of those cases. Read any of the reviews here, and you'll know how terrible "Godzilla" was. But the soundtrack is a different story. Granted, it has bombs of its own. Joey DeLuxe's "Undercover" is still one of the worst tracks I've ever heard. It also has weak moments like Puff Daddy's "Come With Me", which I thought was hardcore when I was 16, but now fully realize as trash (and I feel eternally bad about being such a loser).
Aside from these, the only issue I have with the album is a bit of inconsistancy. Radio-friendly hits like the Wallflowers' cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" conflict terribly with anti-establishment pieces like Evil Empire era Rage Against the Machine with "No Shelter". Beautiful piano rock tracks like Ben Folds Five's "Air" and Michael Penn's "Macy Day Parade" just don't quite fit in with the Godzilla remix of Green Day's "Brain Stew" (though all of them are great songs).
Also contributing solid songs are Jamiroquai, Days of the New, Fuel, and fuzzbubble, with two sections of score by David Arnold. Plus, there are two incredible songs found on this soundtrack, courtesy of the Foo Fighters and Silverchair. Both "A320" and "Untitled" are such amazing tracks, that you can't help but wonder what the heck they're doing on a soundtrack to a movie like this. It easily makes the cd worth the purchase, as long as you never touch the film.
