Tracks 4 and 5 don't fit on this album, though they may be in the movie, they really ruin the mood if you are just listening to it. I never really liked Bush, but Institute's track "Bullet-Proof Skin is good. Not great, but I don't skip it when I'm listening to it in the car. Kasabian's track, as another reviewer already mentioned, is annoying. I like the "Clubfoot" song they have going around, but this track is a skip.
Dredg is awesome. Buy their album. "Bug Eyes" is great, but there are so many others on their new album Catch Without Arms. Definately worth a listen by everyone.
The Fray, Trading Yesterday, and Acceptance all have great songs with Trading Yesterday being the surprise. "One Day" is a really good track. Track 12 is garbage. Skip. The last Incubus song is pretty cool, even though it isn't new, I've never heard this one. It has a weird Asian feel, that is just hypnotic.
Overall a good album. With 9 out of 13 tracks being worthwhile, it is definately worth a listen. The Incubus tracks alone are not worth the price of admission in my book, but the Dredg, Trading Yesterday, and The Fray giving really good tracks as well, this is a definate buy.
I'm a big Incubus fan, so I had to hear the new stuff. Hell, I wasn't even aware they were recording anything new these days. I figured they were on a break! The three new tracks, although not breaking the mold, are a pleasant surprise. You've probably heard "Make A Move" on the radio, and it's standard Incubus. "Admiration" and "Neither Of Us Can See" are a little different than normal, and seem to make less sense with this movie than any of the other songs. Likewise, "Aqueous Transmission," from their 2001 album, "Morning View," is an especially peculiar choice (albeit, an amazing, underrated song). However, Incubus aren't the only ones making worthy contributions. Dredg's new single "Bug Eyes" is nice to hear on here, as the group has hardly had any promotion in the past. The Fray also fight for what is arguably the best song on here (even better than the Incubus material) with "Over My Head (Cable Car)." You might not know these guys yet, but I get the feeling they are gonna be huge soon. I saw them open up for Weezer this past Tuesday, and let me tell you, they had me hooked from the first note. Very interesting, honest, and emotional pop-rock. Trading Yesterday's track, "One Day," was also another pleasant surprise, but one track that doesn't live up to expectations is Institute's "Bullet-Proof Skin." You may not know it, but this is Gavin Rossdale's (ex-Bush) new group, featuring Chris Traynor of Helmet fame on guitar (and Paige Hamilton, also of Helmet, producing). I wasn't a particularily big Bush fan, but the involvement of Hamilton and Traynor had me intrigued. Sadly, this song is a bust. Also, Kasabian's "L.S.F." is just annoying. Sorry, I just don't understand the big hype with these guys. This song sounds like something Fatboy Slim would do. Pass.
So, overall, a great little collection. If you don't get it for the new Incubus tracks, do it just to hear Dredg and The Fray (if you haven't already). It's quite an eclectic mix, there's something for everyone, really. As far as the movie goes? Eh, not really interested. A plane with a brain? As good as this soundtrack is, it doesn't make me wanna see the movie anymore than I did before.
