That's really the point, though. Tarantino wrote the film to be a "struck down woman exacts revenge on her would-be assassins". What more do you need? The lyrics to the other songs are really pointless, except for The Rza's Ode to Oren Ishii, but the small background music makes it easy to understand.
There's a little bit of rockabilly that only Elvis people can appreciate: Charlie Feathers' "That Certain Female" and "Woo Hoo" by the 220.127.116.11's just make you want to get up and boogie.
Those of you who noticed the yellow tracksuit should be pleased to know that the Theme Song to "The Green Hornet" is on this CD. Yep, this is all about Lee exacting revenge on Carradine.
Besides the Sinatra and Kaji tracks, the other two that really set things off are The Lonely Shepherd by Zamfir and The Grand Duel by Luis Bacalov. Both feel like they belong in a Sergio Leone film, except they borrow from other styles: The Lonely Shepherd has a Mexican/SW flavor as it builds, and The Grand Duel starts off with an Asian flavor.
The cool thing is you can almost see the carnage, smell the blood and hear the steel slice through flesh when listening to it, especially after watching the trailers.
The number one reason to own this CD: the theatrical trailers. There's the teaser that played before Gangs of New York as well as two full trailers that you can only see on this CD and in theaters. (The Full Trailer at Quicktime is much different than either of these.) The kicker: the "Quentin Tarantino Bootleg" trailer uses similar shots to what one would see in the trailer to Sergio Leone's "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". It seems like a shot-for-shot remake of that trailer, except they use Kill Bill footage.
This cd, as a packaging of that 5+ star sheer joy, is lacking and imperfect, not up to the standards... Read more
