Mission Impossible ~ M:I-2 : Music From And Inspired


This is quite an impressive list of today's modern rock heroes. Limp Bizkit incorporate a sci-fi space groove into their patented rap-metal and deliver the Mission: Impossible 2 theme, "Take a Look Around." Former Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell contributes the Led Zeppelin-influenced "Mission 2000." Pink Floyd's 1975 anti-record industry classic "Have a Cigar" is replicated and then augmented with hard-rock screams and heavy-metal guitars by the Foo Fighters and former Queen guitarist Brian May. Tori Amos's atmospheric "Carnival" nicely complements the straightforward hard rock of Buckcherry. Powderfinger's "Not My Kinda Scene" captures a lazy desert vibe, while Biff Butler navigates the generic industrial-metal wasteland with his band, Apartment 26. For over-the-top mayhem, Rob Zombie's got the market cornered with the sonically impressive "Scum of the Earth." And there's even the rarely-heard-from-these-days Butthole Surfers coming back with the restrained (for them) "They Came In." --Rob O'Connor

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but.... June 27 2001
Format:Audio CD
...what is Unkle Cracker doing on here, and why does Kid Rock have to meddle in just about everything? (it was bad enough he butchered Metallica's "Sad But True"). Speaking of Metallica, I really wish James and Lars would have written a song a lot heavier (by the way, this isn't their first time on a soundtrack, check out the Spawn soundtrack for a remix of "For Whom the Bell Tolls"), but besides these minor gripes, this album is pretty sweet. Limp Bizkit offers their version of the Mission: Impossible theme song, and I am no fan of theirs, but they do a good job. Rob Zombie's first new song in two years is pretty good too, and the team up of the Foo Fighters and legendary Queen guitarist Brian May doing Pink Floyd's "Have a Cigar" is pretty good too. The songs by Chris Cornell, Godsmack, Buckcherry, Karma, and Apartment 26 are pretty good as well. All in all, it's a pretty good soundtrack, but nowhere near the best (Heavy Metal 2000).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Soundtrack I've Come Across Jan. 8 2002
Format:Audio CD
When I saw the movie, I knew it was going to be a great soundtrack. I listen to a lot of music, and this soundtrack is truly a piece of art. It's one of those cd's where every song is great. It's really nice to have a cd that I can pop in and listen to the whole way through. I'd recommend it highly to anybody who likes a little heavier touch; it's good stuff!

In its own respects, Mission Impossible 2 came supplemented with a really good soundtrack. There's a bunch of really good songs on here. The downsides, however, are the songs that came on the radio. "Take A Look Around," while nice and hard (something I like), is unappealing to me mainly because they murdered what used to be a great TV show theme. Also, I DETEST "I Disappear." It's an obvious leftover from their worst cd, and usually I'm not that fond of songs that do the same thing over and over again. Also, I must say that I've heard both the version of "Have A Cigar" on the cd AND the studio version. The studio version is a million times better. And a minor complaint I have is that while Tori Amos' song is really good and easy to listen to, she just doesn't belong on a hard rock cd, which is what this is. However, there are some highs in my review. Rob Zombie's contribution (thank GOD he wrote a new song!!!) is actually the only song I've ever liked by him, and I like it a lot in fact. Butthole Surfers is a pleasant surprise to this cd. Buckcherry's and Godsmack's new material towers over all their previous songs, and I found a new artist I like in Apartment 26. It's worth 12.99, but not 14.99 (I'm stingy).

3.0 out of 5 stars Good album, but less than you'd expect March 31 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album has a strong start thanks to Limp Bizkit's smash hit "Take A Look Around", a rap-metal cover of the classic Mission Impossible theme. It is followed by two other great songs that really rock: "I Disappear" by Metallica and Rob Zombie's "Scum Of The Earth". It's a pity that the next tracks can't compete with their predecessors. "Have A Cigar" by Foo Fighters and Bryan May was a big disappointment to me, since the Foo Fighters have released some great songs in earlier days. The only good songs in the second half of this soundtrack are "What U Lookin' At" by Uncle Cracker, which is very much Kid-Rock-style and the more quiet "Carnival" by Tori Amos. The rest is fairly average.
So, if you're looking for a rock/metal compilation, this CD is for you. But then again, consider buying the "End Of Days" Soundtrack first. It features songs by Limp Bizkit, Everlast, KoRn, Rob Zombie and Guns N Roses. Its style is similar to m:i-2, but the collection of songs is much better there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gets 4 because of Metallica Feb. 21 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought the CD because I saw that the Metallica song, "I Disappear" was on it. Though I hadn't heard the song, I'm a fan of their music, so thought i would be good. It was, in fact, the best song on the entire CD.
The first track, "Take a Look Around" by Limp Bizkit is also very good. I liked how the Mission: Impossible theme was included, and besides, Limp Bizkit is a good band anyways. Rob Zombie provided a new song--unlike another remake of an older song such as on "The Matrix" soundtrack.
From there, the CD got...okay. There were a few good songs on the disk, but nothing truly amazing. "Rocket Science" was a pretty good song, I guess, but the rest were mediocre. I expected more from the Kid Rock song. The lyrics were good, but that main verse was just annoying.
Overall, I give this CD 4 stars for the first 3 songs. There are a few throughout the rest of the soundtrack that are worth listening to, but if you like Limp Bizkit, Metallica or Rob Zombie, you should pick up this one. I wasn't disappointed at all after listening to the CD from start to finish--but I was still probably riding the excitement from Metallica and Limp Bizkit. If you liked "The Matrix" soundtrack, you'll enjoy this, too. I didn't like the movie--it was too James Bond-like for a Mission: Impossible film--but the soundtrack is among my favorites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Performances July 5 2000
Format:Audio CD
I must admit that when I first bought this CD I was a little let down by it. But after giving the CD a few spins I started to enjoy it. Though most of the songs are forgettable there are still some good ones. Limp Bizkit's "Take A Look Around" was decent but not groundbreaking, I enjoyed the metal interpretation of the Mission Impossible theme. Metallica's "I Disappear" was pretty good, but is certainly not one of their best songs. Rob Zombie's "Scum Of The Earth" was great, it's the main reason this CD keeps spinning in my stereo, it was heavy and powerful. I also find The Pimps "Rocket Science" pretty good too, it is a good rap/metal song. Most of the remaining songs are forgettable until you get to Apartment 26's "Backwards" which is actaully quite a good metal song. That is followed by Diffuser's "Karma" which is a very well done rock/metal song, I would like to hear more of their work. Finally Buckcherry's "Alone" was a decent rock/metal performance. The other songs are forgettable, but the CD is still a good buy.
