Product Description

Product Description


Based on the hit comic book about a man who returns from the dead to avenge his killers, the film adaptation of The Crow suffered a cruel irony when star Brandon Lee (son of martial arts superstar Bruce Lee) died during production after a bizarre onset accident. That event only deepened the film's aura of death and gothic unease, moods that are brilliantly underscored by this well-chosen collection of stark alt rock, dark metal, and industrial dirges.

The opener, the Cure's typically angst-ridden "Burn," is about as sentimental as this album gets, bookended by Jane Siberry's wistful "It Can't Rain All the Time." Sandwiched in between is a virtual primer on powerful mid-1990s alt and industrial rock, from Nine Inch Nails hammering Joy Division's "Dead Souls" into its own image to the blistering snarl of Helmet, Pantera, and the Rollins Band. So-called pop-song scores often have a cheap afterthought feel to them; this one, a refreshingly integral part of the film itself, stands as a great album in its own right. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Moody Soundtrack for a Moody Movie Nov. 27 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"The Crow" soundtrack (which is dedicated to the memory of the late Brandon Lee who died while filming the movie and will always be remembered by the part he plays, whether he likes it or not) opens with a spellbinding, quintessential "Crow" song: "Burn" by The Cure, a song linked to the transformational movie scene where Eric Draven (Lee) decorates himself in white foundation, black leather and lipstick after revisiting his trashed apartment. Machines of Loving Grace's "Golgotha Tenement Blues" (#2) and Nine Inch Nails' "Dead Souls" (#4) follow in this same ambiance, keeping with the dark moodiness of the film. The heavier, more aggressive side to this soundtrack can found in tracks like [#9] "The Badge" by Pantera, [#10] "Slip Slide Melting" by For Love Not Lisa, and [#11] "After the Flesh" by My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult--all favorites of mine. After this last song, I generally turn the CD off before the remaining three sappy tracks, which wrap up with the Jane Siberry tune that's titled after the words in the movie: "It can't rain all the time." If you're a fan of this 1994 dark fantasy--or you just like the majority of alternative rock bands/artists on here--then this soundtrack is certainly worth owning. It's a great piece of "The Crow" nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything a soundtrack should be April 25 2003
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Crow soundtrack not only reflects the dark mood of the film, it actually did much to create that dark mood in the first place. One is hard pressed to say which came first, the movie or the music; that is how closely linked both aspects of the production are. Jane Siberry's It Can't Rain All the Time will forever be identified with The Crow in my mind; this hauntingly beautiful track makes this album worth buying all by itself; I know of no other song I could even compare it to in terms of its depth of feeling and quiet intensity. The other 13 tracks are pretty amazing songs in their own right, serving up a sampler of styles from rock's slightly darker and heavier side. Stone Temple Pilot's Big Empty is immediately recognizable to anyone who ever listened to a radio in the early 1990s, but I most enjoyed hearing some offerings from bands I am less familiar with. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult is a band I have never heard of outside of The Crow soundtrack, and I'm really surprised this group has not received more attention over the years. For Love Not Lisa is another group that impressed me, especially with the "I would die for you" refrain that forms the heart of their song Slip Slide Melting. I know Pantera only be reputation, and I'm glad I got to hear a sampling of their work here. Nine Inch Nails and Rage Against the Machine are two bands that have never captured my attention, but their contributions to this soundtrack have me thinking I ought to take another look at them. Rollins Band's Ghostrider came as a bit of a shock to me because the lead singer sounds remarkably like Jim Morrison, and this song really has the sound of a modernized Doors song. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars By far my favorite soundtrack Nov. 17 2002
Format:Audio CD
Naming my favorite soundtrack wasn't a very hard choice, but it's a very close call between this one & Singles (mainly cuz the musical vibe was more consistent in The Crow), which are both equally good movies. I don't even own very many soundtracks, mainly cuz there's usually only a few good songs, or I already have the songs I like on the artist's albums. This one is a rare exception that someone else pointed out that actually GOES WITH the film, not just a cash-in with mediocre songs. Another problem with soundtracks is the variety is usually too diverse, which is why people only like a song here & there. This one does have a diversity of songs by different types of rock, but they're not all that mainstream (STP prolly the only exception). Most people who don't go for mainstream as easily are usually more appreciative of other types of styles & actually enjoy exploring other bands they're never heard of. These diverse songs somehow go together to paint a dark picture for the whole film.

The Cure's "Burn" is a great start for the album. The thing that bugs me is that people who ordinarily don't like The Cure really like this song...& what a shame too, cuz they're missing out (they're my favorite band)!! If you haven't heard Disintegration, shame on you!! It has a similar driving bass vibe that "Fascination Street" has. MLG's "Golgotha Tenement Blues" is a WAY cool creepy song, I can't believe some people don't even like it!! Also check out another cool song of theirs, "Butterfly Wings". "Big Empty" is definitely my all-time favorite STP song, mainly thanks to the drastic dynamics from the mellow verse to the intense chorus, & an interesting bass line.

The One "Must Have" CD, Especially If You Plan To Have 10 - 100 of Your Closest Friends Over To Party!
"The Crow: Original Motion Picture Sound Track" remains on My personal "Top 20 Albums of All Time" list and rates as one of the best Sound Tracks ever made. It was recorded in 1996 for the picture "The Crow" starring the ill-fated Brandon Lee, only son of Martial Arts Film Legend, Bruce Lee.
Brandon, who died in a bizarre on set accident, starred in this film about a dark hero who comes from the afterlife to bring justice to those who would do evil. His death reinforced the dark mood of the film and as recent legend would have us believe, fulfilled the curse of his father for bringing the ancient art of Kung Fu to the masses, as the film about Bruce Lee's life hinted at.
This recording showcases a diverse community of talent and even groups I would otherwise never have listened to, make an impressive effort. From it's haunted opening strains by The Cure, it takes you on a visceral musical journey. The second track by The Machines of Loving Grace set a dark metallic feeling that fits with the movie perfectly, though a one hit wonder, this is the hit that put them on the map.
Then with the third track it takes an Earthy, melancholic turn with The Stone Temple Pilots. Next on the list is a remake of the song "Dead Souls" by Nine Inch Nails, which is as angst filled as any Modern Alternative battle cry but with Trent Reznor giving it an edge lacking in most of the songs of the day. The Fifth track on this Masterpiece is a song called "Darkness" by the ever rebellious Rage Against the Machine.
