Product Description

Review

There's something fascinating about Puff Daddy's crass remake of Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," here called "Come With Me." As remakes go, it's so over-the-top and unexpected that it takes on an audacious appeal--and what better riff to represent mass urban destruction? If only the rest of Godzilla matched it. Lumbering through it is music as murky and joyless as the movie itself, from the likes of Silverchair and Days of the New. It's telling when the best cut on this mostly pop soundtrack is an orchestral one--David Arnold's theme, which shivers with monstrous anticipation. -- Entertainment Weekly

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

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.

I mean, this album is okay. But its got 7 songs made for the movie! I don't get it. 4 songs were music video songs. I mean these songs:
1. Heroes - The Wallflowers- A pretty good song. Fits the movie if you think about it.
2. Come With Me - Puff Daddy/Jimmy Page- Really, this must've been the worst track on the album. A rapper gets together with the leader of Led Zepplin to remake his song. Does anyone see anything wrong with that? Puff Daddy=Rap Led Zepplin=Classic Heavy Metal.
3. Deeper Underground - Jamiroquai- A great jazzy funk song, although the movie could've gone without it.
4. No Shelter - Rage Against The Machine-Great band, great song, fits the movie.
Then they got a stupid remix:
10. Brain Stew - Green Day (The Godzilla Remix)-They screwed up a perfectly good song. They should've remixed another song other than this.
Then, 2 songs that belong on a different album:
Opening Titles & Looking For Clues-They belong on the Godzilla score. I doubt that anyone who'll like RATM and Green Day will like these songs.

"Godzilla: the Album" begins with a lesson in bipolarity as it opens with The Wallflowers' majestic cover of David Bowie's "Heroes" in a version thats slightly rougher than the original. Next is a textbook example in how not to cover a song: Puff Daddy's "Come With Me." This time Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" gets the Puff Daddy plundering, I mean treatment. We should be thankful that he didn't decide to write new lyrics for the rock classic. Other high points include Foo Fighters' balladic ode to flying, Green Day's "Brain Stew" that comes complete with Godzilla grunts, and Joey DeLuxe's jazz-lounge number "Undercover" that somehow manages not to seem out of place. fuzzbubble's "Out There" is a rote "let's-write-a-song-about-a space-creature" number and Ben Folds Five's "Air" is just dull. And how can you have a "Godzilla" soundtrack without a remake, if not the original version, of Blue Oyster Cult's ode to the beast?

definatly pleases those fans of Puff Daddy, The Wallflowers, Jamiroquai, Foo Fighters, and Green Day. Although I haven't heard the original, Puff Daddy's remix "Come with me" is off beat and lags on for a long time. Jamiroquai's "Deeper Underground" is a cool song, and "Brain Stew" by Green Day is awesome. The only complaint aside from a few doozers (i.e. silverchair's "untitled", fuzzbubble, Macy Day Parade, and FUEL), is David Arnolds (gasp!) terrible score. Although you don't get a very good dosage of the music on the disk, a greater sampling can be heard on the movie or the rare "sneak preview soundtrack". The score is, well......bad. "Opening titles" starts off menacingly enough, only to dissapate into a muddled mish-mash of choir and off beat roars of trumpet and drum. A queer piano-sounding instrument plays the movie's main title over and over again towards the end, then blends into the seamless track "Looking for clues" which is just about as exciting as milking a cow. The peice is a basic collage of the weird piano mixed against a backdrop of pointless strings. The CD is a good buy for some of the catchy tunes but is a waste of money if you are looking for another INDEPENDENCE DAY.

1. Heroes-Wallflowers-Just the classic Wallflowers stuff, mellow guitars. Nothing great, but a good song. 2. Come With Me-Puff Daddy-Almost as good as the original by Zeppelin. A little long though, but awesome sounding with the orchestra and Jimmy Page from who else but Zeppelin. 3. Deeper Underground-Jamiroquai-Cool dance song with a lot of bass and synthesysers(however you spell it) 4. No Shelter-Rage Against the Machine-Tied for first. Awesome guitar effects. 5. Air-Ben Folds Five-Cool song after about a minute, just listen 6. Running Knees-Days of the new-never listened past :10 7. Macy day parade-Michael Penn- same as 6 8. Walk the Sky-Fuel-great intro and lyrics. tied for first with no shelter. 9. A320-Foo Fighters- ok 10. Brain Stew-Green Day-The remix makes the original better by adding synthesysers and a weird techno break in the middle. 11. Untitled-Silverchair-ok also 12. Out There-Fuzzbubble-pretty cool song, some cool guitar sounds. 13. Undercover-Joey Deluxe-Very hip swing sounding song with some neat organ sounds. Listen to it. 14.-15.-David arnold-Orchestra stuff, boring after a while.
