Directed by the prolific Rob Zombie, The Devil's Rejects is the sequel to 2003's successful House Of 1000 Corpses, and picks up several weeks after House left off. The music featured on the soundtrack plays an integral part in the film, including the shocking ending featuring the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic 'Free Bird'. Hip-O. 2005.
Top Customer Reviews
Here you have a new film (2005) set in the 1970's with a relevent 70's country, rock and rock-a-billy soundtrack assembled by Zombie himself. If you've seen the movie you know what I mean... With Great actors of that era's horror/slasher and grindhouse films appearing and a dialouge right out 70's gridehouse buddy/road movies and the use of grainy film effect you believe that your watching something filmed in the 70's and not just something set in the 70's!
The same goes for the soundtracks all three The Drop-in music like Free bird or Rock On or Midnight Rider soundtrack or the score soundtrack or even the Banjo and Sullivin compainion disc of the fictional duo that gets on the bad side of the Fireflys' (if you catch my meaning).
I will never be able to listen to Free Bird again with out thinking of the accopanying scene from this film.

"Rocky Mountain Way" was used to perfection in the movie with it's sleazy guitar riff, "Free Bird" works really well also. The three Terry Reid tracks are standouts. Hearing these songs back to back and with sound bites, you can feel the heat of the summer and the reckless abandon depicted in the movie.
The album closes with a few tracks from Banjo & Sullivan who also have a complete album out (Banjo & Sullivan are the fictious country band in the movie). What's interesting though is that although they are on the soundtrack and have a "Hits" album, you don't hear any of their songs in the movie.
I like this album, I liked the movie. If you're a fan of 70's classic rock you'll probably like this album as well. It's a great album to play while going for a summer drive.
The soundtrack for House came out a few weeks before the movie, and I'm sure there was a lot of confusion about the choice of tracks, from cuts by Buck Owens, Helen Kane, and Slim Whitman. But I don't think anyone can deny the power those songs had in the final work. I know I'll never listen to "I Remember You" in the same way again, after watching Otis, in painful, deliberate pause, delay the shooting of the cowardly police officer.
Rob's use of music is brilliant and visceral. It hearkens to Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. I'm sure nobody will forget the sinister tone "Stuck In the Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel took during the torture of the police officer.
And now, we have the soundtrack for The Devil's Rejects, and it's deja vu all over again. The only review for this CD so far is by a person who dislikes cuts from the 70's, and wonders why Rob Zombie didn't cut any new tracks for this CD.
Rob has explained this himself, in many interviews. The reason is simple- Rejects is going to be more serious, more driven, more dark. It's a different movie than House. Rob says that he is driving for the more 'documentary' feel of 70's horror, and since Rejects is set in the 70's.....well, you figure it out.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this CD. The audio cuts from the movie only tantalize me with thoughts about what Captain Spaulding, Otis, and the rest of the Firefly Clan will be doing in this movie. And....listening to these great songs makes me wonder what I'll be thinking AFTER I watch this movie.
MIDNIGHT RIDER- The Allman Brothers Band
SHAMBALA- Three Dog Night
BRAVE AWAKENING- Terry Reid
IT WASN'T GOD WHO MADE HONKY TONK ANGELS- Kitty Wells
SATAN'S GOT TO GET ALONG WITHOUT ME- Buck Owens
FOOLED AROUND AND FELL IN LOVE- Elvin Bishop
I CAN'T QUIT YOU BABY- Otis Rush
FUNK #49- The James Gang
ROCK ON- David Essex
ROCKY MOUNTAIN WAY- Joe Walsh
TO BE TREATED- Terry Reid
FREE BIRD- Lynyrd Skynyrd
SEED OF MEMORY- Terry Reid
I'M AT HOME GETTING HAMMERED- Banjo & Sullivan.
The use of these songs is fitting and correct. They will only add to the style of the movie. If you still don't get it, go rent The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Dawn of the Dead....
With the sequel, this talent has grown even more. This time out, Zombie decides to ditch any of his own music and instead favoring southern rock type songs. Joe Walsh, The Allman Brothers Band and Lynard Skynard provide perhaps some of the biggest rock anthems in this collection. And though I'm a little weary of "Freebird" it played well in the movie and I suppose it should be in anyones well-rounded music library just as a staple. There are a couple of old-style country and blues which I have a real soft spot for. "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky-Tonk Angels by Kitty Wells is a great track. It makes me want to go to a dank, smelly bar and drink Pabst out of a dirty glass. My real favorites here, however, were the tunes by Terry Reid who I had never heard of before and released only one album I believe. These are a few of the best songs I've heard in a while, and they really played well in the movie. I have to thank Mr. Zombie for making these otherwise forgotten songs available. Also I should mention the song by the ill-fated country duo, Banjo & Sullivan singing "I'm At Home Getting Hammered While She's Out Getting Nailed". You can't forget that one.
Of course on this soundtrack we are treated with a nice number of sound clips from the movie. There really are some funny moments in this otherwise brutal film. And the Dual Disc features a twenty making-of documentary which has a few clips of the movie, comments from the stars and behind-the-scenes footage during filming.
So if you like southern rock, 70's music, and violence and mayhem, buy this CD and crank it while you're barreling down a hot dusty highway with the heat on you're trail.
