Product Description

Product Description

The first film in six years from acclaimed writer-director Quentin Tarantino, Kill Bill Vol. 1 is certain to create a stir. As with all of Tarantino's films, music plays a major role. For Kill Bill Vol. 1, a martial arts flick about an assassin who seeks revenge, The RZA from the multiplatinum-selling Wu-Tang Clan takes centerstage, surrounded by the sort of vintage, quirky tracks that made the soundtracks to Tarantino films such as Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown such fan favorites.

Amazon.ca

Fashion be damned: Pop culture is just one big Hometown Buffet for writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Nowhere has that sensibility been more apparent than on his hand-picked soundtrack choices, and this oft tongue-in-cheek tale of a female assassin's revenge (his first film in six years) is no exception. With dizzy, almost palpable glee, Tarantino evokes the international hall-of-mirrors influences that energize martial arts films and much of Asian pop culture in general. Thus the hip-hop of Wu Tang's RZA (who, along with composer Charles Bernstein, concocts what passes for the score's traditional cues) somehow finds itself but one ingredient in a heady souffle that includes vintage TV and film cue rarities (Al Hirt's main title from The Green Hornet, Bernard Herrmann's haunting theme from Twisted Nerve, the spaghetti western melodrama of Luis Bacalov's "The Grand Duel," Isaac Hayes in full blaxploitation mode on "Run Fay Run"), Charlie Feathers' vintage rockabilly and a pan-kitsch sensibility that encompasses Zamfir, Nancy Sinatra's angst-in-the-pants take "Bang, Bang" and Santa Esmeralda's disco-era workout of "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." Tarantino's contemporary Japan-Pop selections are no less giddy, ranging from Meiko Kaji's sultry "Flower of Carnage" to The 5.6.7.8's loopy "Woo Hoo." It's everything we've come to expect from a Tarantino score (including dialog excerpts and a few sound fx stingers), with a madcap trip around the pop music world thrown in for good measure. -- Jerry McCulley

Format: Audio CD
Curiously, the liner only has lyrics for "Bang Bang" by Nancy Sinatra and "Flower of Carnage" by Meiko Kaji.
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 5.6.7.8'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.

If you have seen the movie, you know that the audio component is a sheer joy.
This cd, as a packaging of that 5+ star sheer joy, is lacking and imperfect, not up to the standards of the movie.
Here is what makes it flawed.
A: It is missing at least 2 standout tracks that I very much want to listen to separate from the film:
1) the Chinese Battle Music that plays during the Bride's fight with the Crazy 88's. The timpani, strumming, and crazy asian chanting are just absolutely delicious. this should not have been one of the first things to go if they needed to make room.
2) Missing the "angelic" music that plays during the scene where the Bride views the collection of Honzo swords. A very pretty songs that I would have liked to have on the cd.
Other gripes:
B) The rapping by RZA (who generally did a teriffic job composing here) on "ode to Oren Ishii" is not good at all. The score as it is in the movie would have been fine. Instead, they changed the track, and it actually is painful to listen to him rap over the beautiful bit of music. I have nothing against rap, it's just not good. I feel like I can hear him trying to think up rrhytms and rhymes and missing a number of them. Someone should have noticed this and said, "tis isn't up to par, either do another rap or we'll leave it isntrumental as in the movie."
I have no other real gripes except that the sequence is not chronological and it doesn't sound especially wonderful in the sequence they have it, so I'm not sure what the point of putting it out of seuqnece is. Also, the dialogue tracks are not really necessary. If they were to be icluded, this should have been chronological and they should have been inserted at approriate points.

First to answer a question:
The song for Oren's entrance is 9- Battle without honor or humanity. I love this one too. Perfect replacement for graduation's Pomp and Circumstance, ugh.
Now to rip Quentin. What the heck are you smoking?!?!
This CD could have been so good. No Urami Bushi, my fav. song
in Vol. 1. Then this guy puts it in Vol. 2. Except he F-it up
by putting this stupid RZA guy rapping on crap into that same
track!!!That's right folks, a beautiful Japanese song, appended
with "..my japanese..b***, sucking ***, giving ****" in Vol. 2 soundtrack.
The whole reason for the excplicit lyric is that RZA.
Now I have to re-cut Urami Bushi. Thanks Quentin!!!
And if you want a preview of RZAcrap, he's also in Vol. 1 talkin
nonsense.
And if the excuse for vol.1 is "there is not enough time in the CD", well..why the heck did he put a 10min version of
Don't Let me be Misunderstood? This track breaks the whole CD.
This CD could have been a 5star for me, but this is total screw up.
I'm not dissing the songs, just the coke head making the decisions. and yeah, lose RZA. I know he's your friend, but please. it's totally out of place.
Here's my advice.
Get the music, one way or another. But don't buy this CD if you can. Download the songs you want. Borrow from a friend. Or just rip the songs off the DVD. It'll be much better. And you'll remember it just the way it was in the movie. (...)

Quentin Tarantino returned in October 2003 with his martial arts masterpiece "Kill Bill - Volume 1," a film that was more ground-breaking and visually pleasing that anything seen all year. After an absence of six years from the film industry, Tarantino returned bigger than ever when the film thrashed its way into cinemas around the world and broke all records imaginable for a film with a kick-ass female lead. Tarantino's original plan was to make this a 4 hour epic, but decided to split the film into two volumes. There are many advantages of this for him: twice as much money at the box office, two as much money from DVD sales, twice as much hype for the second volume and two stunning soundtracks...
Tarantino is well known for his love of popular culture, and his soundtracks to the films he directs are always painfully and methodically planned out to ensure worldwide appeal. It is often said that a soundtrack can make a film, and in the case of Kill Bill, they sure are right! The soundtrack to Volume 1 of Kill Bill is the ultimate and you are left with a feeling that Tarantino surely cannot top it with his soundtrack to Volume 2 by the time it finishes. On this soundtrack we get some of the film's most memorable music all contained on one disc for your listening pleasure. Take the opening track, Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" which instantly brings in themes of old Western films. A true classic, revived for this soundtrack. Someone's been listening to too much Elvis on Charlie Feathers' "That Certain Female," whilst the instrumental qualities of "The Grand Duel - (Parte Prima)" by Luis Bacalov make for one of the most visual and atmospheric tracks on offer here.(...
