Product Description

Amazon.ca

Everything about crypt crawler Lara Croft is fake: her boobs, her archaeological background, her identity. So it's fitting that the equally synthetic Tomb Raider Soundtrack should arrive in time for her big-screen debut. U2 reel out the album's strongest track, a glossy remix of "Elevation" that skids all over glam-rock terrain and is just sexy enough to make it work as a single (as well as a scene-stealing video featuring Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie). Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor works himself into a fit on the grinding "Deep", but his tirade sounds outdated with its dumb lyrics and clunky, hookless programming. Speaking of computer blues, Groove Armada's wordless snoozer "Edge Hill" is about as far from shakin' that ass as a dance act can get. Thankfully, club reliables like the Chemical Brothers and Moby can still get it done; the former brings out the funk with a writhing dance tune that's as tireless as the film's heroine, while the latter's fuzzed-out big beats explode into a giddy freak-out that helps tighten up the album's bland midsection. Oddly, the only ladies in the house, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliot and young Nelly Furtado, are the ones who get Lara Croft's modus operandi right; no matter how perfect she may be, she still needs to "get her freak on". --Kristy Martin

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Raid Sept. 1 2003
By AMP
Format:Audio CD
Having bought this album off the shelf without listening to any of it at first, I was pleased by the intense techno and the chaotic rap that this CD contains. Most of it is techno, hip-hop, and rap, but most of it is worth listening to:
-"Elevation" by U2. Unlike the rest of the album, this is a rock song. It's melody and lyrics makes it memorable, and is probably one of the best tracks here.
-"Deep" by N.I.N. Heavily synthesized instruments and loud drums, followed by loud singing. It's somewhat intense, but not too much. It's quite good.
-"Galaxy Bounce" by the Chemical Brothers. Rapid-pace techno track with repeating lyrics. Unlike other Chemical Brothers songs, it's not wholly irritating, and is actually cool.
-"Get Ur Freak On" by Missy Elliot. Others may enjoy this track for some reason, but to me, it sounds like some annoying music from the streets of Bangladesh.
-"Speedballin'" by Outkast. High-paced chaotic rap song. It's pretty phat.
-"Ain't Never Learned" by Moby. A dreary techno song that's not too fast or too slow. The lyrics may be irritating to some, but I like it.
-"The Revolution" by BT. Synthesized vocals dominate this rock song. It's really cool.
-"Terra Firma" by Delerium. Techno with choral singing. Gives the feel of being in a Cambodian jungle or something.
-"Where's Your Head At" by Basement Jaxx. One of the most chaotic songs on the album. Still a cool song.
-"Illuminati" by Fatboy Slim. Cut-up techno beats with cut-up vocals. It may be annoying in some ways, but unlike other Fatboy Slim songs, I found this one all right.
-"Absurd" by Fluke. Fast-beat techno. It's absurdly good.
-"Song of Life" by Leftfield. Downbeat techno track with some choral vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Money but Somewhat Dissapointing Aug. 5 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack boasts some excellent songs and is a perfect compliment to the movie. "Deep" by Nine Inch Nails, "Terra Firma" by Delerium, and "Song of Life" by Leftfield were my three favorites and all the other songs were fair to great as well, excepting the two which I will mention next. "Devil's Nightmare" by Oxide and Neutrino is a horrid sounding mix which I don't even recognize from the movie. It just didn't seem to fit in and it in no possible form could have passed as decent on its own. "Satellite" by Bosco is also horrible. They have this high-pitched squeaky voice that sounds like its been helium induced which makes it revolting and, again, I can't find the connection from within the movie. These two tracks change the feel of the album and forced me to lower the rating to 4 stars, but other than those atrocities, the tracks are all decent. I was dissapointed that four of the tracks had lyrics when in the movie versions they didn't. I fell in love with the music from "Deep", "Galaxy Bounce", "Illuminati", and "Absurd" when I heard them played in the movie, but they all sport either lyrics or voice effects which messed with them. I was able to accept the lyrics in "Deep" and "Absurd" because the talent was good in combination with the music, but "Illuminati" (in this version) sports a line or two of speech which I found disturbing. It's not too bad, but I think the track's quality would have improved without it. Also, "Galaxy Bounce" has these sporadic additions of a singing-type noise which I absolutely hate and I therefore gave up listening to that track for more than the thirty seconds or so it takes to reach that point. Sad, but true. Overall, this album is worth the money if you noticed the music from the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it, just be prepared for a setback or two as you listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars someone who's actually a fan of electronica Oct. 5 2002
Format:Audio CD
the 'official' review is BS.. she doesn't know what she's talking about. Elevation is, easily, the weakest track on the album, with the exception of Missy Elliot's song. Groove Armada's 'Edge Hill' is absolutely beautiful, and it's NOT TRYING to be a dance track. Electronic music is not always made to dance to. I don't understand why people have such a hard time seeing this. I am a Moby fan, but personally I found 'Ain't Never Learned' to be very bland, with the exception of the acid bits. 'Galaxy Bounce' is somewhat standard fare for the Chemical Brothers, it's not bad, but pick up their new album and you'll quickly see it's nowhere near the level of their other stuff. And also, Nine Inch Nail's track 'Deep' is a great track! not only is it fun to listen to, the lyrics are not stupid, and the bassline permeates your body. it'd be a great track to play as a color/flavor tracin a dj set. Then she refers to the 'bland midsection' of the record.. frankly i have no idea what she means. BT's track is very well done, very cinematic. Delerium's track, Terra Firma, slides you in and out of awareness, and into pure bliss. then she actually dared to leave out Leftfield's 'Song Of Life' from her review.. this song is quite the classic, and it deserves all the hype, it's simply stunning. Fatboy Slim's track 'Illuminati' is nice, but not really top notch stuff for Norm. Fluke's edit of 'Absurd' is a mixed bag- while both this edit and the original are amazing, this focuses more on percussion, while the original focuses more on the vocals. Basement Jaxx's 'Where's Your Head At?' is actually their only song I can stand to listen to, and I really do enjoy it.. it would be excellant in a house set.
all in all, it's an excellant soundtrack, and I'm considering buying it again because I lost the cd and I miss it. all it needs is some IDM, and then it'd be an excellant diverse collection of electronica. Buy this cd asap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lara's Party Mix--not a bad little CD
The opening scene of Tomb Raider shows Lara Croft foxing some kind of computer-controlled death machine by feeding it "Lara's Party Mix" --a cd of her favorite music. Read more

Definitely a keeper. The beat is non-stop. The re-mix of "Get Ur Freak On" is great, which is unusual enough in itself. I can see myself wearing out this CD!
