Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack to a great movie March 20 2004
Format:Audio CD
I recently watched "The Crow" on the Sundance Channel and although I knew about the movie I had never really seen it. I really liked the movie and ordered the soundtrack. I admired the tragic story esp. with the death of Brandon Lee in the making and the stylish filmaking, but there was something special about the movie and the soundtrack really takes you back to the movie. The soundtrack rocks and I am so glad I got it. Even without the movie this collection of early 90's rock really stands out.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best soundtracks out there Dec 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
this sountrack is wonderful. just listening to the album takes you through the movie itself. the frist track by The Cure is great. being the first track, it really draws you in and keeps you curious about the rest of the album. overall i think its just plain great.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The blueprint for alternative music soundtracks. Oct. 29 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
I remember when this came out it seemed custome made for my musical tastes at the time, and still does really. I mean the quality of bands here is great. Of the first five tracks alone you got "Nine Inch Nails", "Rage Against The Machine", "Stone Temple Pilots", and one of the best "Cure" songs ever, and that's saying alot. Plus in the middle of the album you get a 1-2-3 punch from "Rollins Band", "Helmet", and "Pantera". Then it ends with cool tracks from "The Jesus and Mary Chain", "The Thrill Kill Kult", and a soft finale from "Jane Siberry". I'm sure the point of the music here was to reflect the feeling of the movie, and it succeeded much better than other soundtracks have. The other "Crow" cd's have some good stuff too, but overall they don't even touch this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Crow Soundtrack Oct. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
When was the last time you scored a quality cd? The kind of cd that would be an essential addition for your collection. The kind that makes you glad that you purchased it. This one does !!! With an allstar cast and a genuine effort from each and every artist, this album is stuffed to the max (from start to finish) with songs that will definitely alter your emotions. Just like the movie, these songs border on the realm of "Spirituality". Just listening to it enhances my senses to want more. Too bad more albums weren't made this way. This is one soundtrack worth owning !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great soundtrack to a great movie Sept. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
Watching "The Crow" and listening to its soundtrack will live in my mind an experience that marked my late college times. Its dark appeal, the fascinating theme of love beyond death and Brandon Lee's enticing performance prior to his death while shooting the picture could not have been better framed musically. The soundtrack provided a perfect background against which the scenes that evolved on the screen were simply perfect, as if choreographed.
But three songs did the most for the movie and transcended it: Jane Siberry's fascinating "It Can't Rain All The Time" along with the final credits, Nine Inch Nail's "Dead Souls" and The Cure's "Burn". Years later, I can still see Lee on my mind, putting on make up, crashing mirrors, and trashing everything around him and as his transformation was under way with The Cure in the background, sounding at their best: one vibrant moment in movie history!
