This is an amazing soundtrack, with some of the best metal and hardcore bands out there today. However, if you're a big fan of this genre of music, then you probably have most of these songs on cd already, because the majority of them aren't new tunes. That's the only reason it gets 4 stars...I would just liked to have seen more new stuff by all these great artists, because the songs that ARE new are amazing, and totally worth buying the album just for them alone. And even if you're not a fan of Creed, you must admit they did a pretty damn good job of putting all these artists onto one album. Personal faves of mine are the songs by Finger Eleven, Incubus, SOAD, Static-X, Slipknot, Powerman5000, and Full Devil Jacket. So, if you have most of these artists on cd already, buy this soundtrack anyway, because the un-released material is worth every cent, and if you don't have most of these artists on cd, then you're missing a whole lot of talent, so AT LEAST add this one to your collection. You definitely won't regret it.
