5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, July 4 2004
This review is from: The Matrix (Audio CD)
I dont hate ANY song on this album. In fact I love just about every single song, most of my favorite bands from the electronica/metal scene are on this album. From Ministry's "Bad Blood" (which will wake you up, I can assure you) to Rob Dougan's modern masterpiece "Clubbed to Death" this soundtrack will give you engery!
1. Rock Is Dead, Marilyn Manson- (metal) Not his best song by far, still not bad, we know what he sounds like... 8/10
2. Spybreak, Propellerheads- (electronica) the music from the goverment lobby scene, very upbeat with a bit of spy thrown in... 9/10
3. Bad Blood - Ministry (metal) takes some getting used to, but once you get used to the noise its good... 8/10
4. Clubbed to Death [Kurayamino Mix], Rob Dougan- (classical, electronica) Beautiful, a masterpiece, i have never tired of this song, one of my favorite songs of all time, Rob Dougan is a god, check out his CD and you can hear him sing! also known as 'The woman in the read dress song'... 11/10
5. Prime Audio Soup, Meat Beat Manifesto- (elcetronica) just the name of the band rocks, good example of early 90's dance scene... 10/10
6. Leave You Far Behind, Lunatic Calm- (electronica/ techno) this song is used in many soundtracks, energizing and fast... 10/10
7. Mindfields, The Prodigy- (electronica) awesome song, awesome band to be sure to check out there CD, The Fat of the Land, perfect example of late 90's British dance music... 10/10
8. Dragula [Hot Rod Herman Remix], Rob Zombie- (metal/ industrial electronica) PURE ENERGY, this song packs quite a punch, insanly good... 10/10
9. My Own Summer (Shove It), Deftones- (electronica i guess) I never really liked Deftones, the song sorta drags, with no real structure, not my favorite... 7/10
10. Ultrasonic Sound, Hive- (industrial electronica) another song with bite, can really lose yourself in this song... 9/10
11. Look to Your Orb for the Warning, Monster Magnet- (electronica (?)) strange song, very dark, grundgy, me like! 8.5/10
12. Du Hast, Rammstein- (Metal/Elecetronica) wow, another one of my all time favorite songs, its in German of course, first time i heard it the voice made me jump, this will really get the heart pumping!... 10/10
13. Wake Up, Rage Against the Machine- (metal) not a big fan of rage, but I do like this song, the guitar of this band is amazing, but i dont like the singer very much, its a great ending to the movie and soundtrack! ... 8/10
all in all it gets alot of my favorite artists, but it's a shame bands like Crystal Method (who really deseveres to be on this album (if u like this album be sure to check out Vegas)) and Chemical Brothers arent on here...and of course a dozen metal bands...
its worth the money, almost every song is worth the price of the album!

Finally something new for the alt rock/ nu metal scene! So hard to describe, the singers are sort of like RATM but not half as annoying and Chevelle but better, the guitar is awesome
a but like RATM but better, and stranger, they are very different some songs are heavy and then go to a echoy creepy almost tropical sound...its strange but cool
1. All Of The Above - 4/5 pretty good, not a huge stand out
2. Backlash - 5/5 cool chorus, nice raping, its good
3. Inside Joke - 4.5/5 very heavy, but the bridge is a sort of slow, break hard to describe
4. Swing Harder - 3.5/5 a weird song, not my favorite but its heavy and quite
5. Build - just a short building block thing to Adriana
6. Adriana - 6/5 i agree this is a 'misleading' single but i must say its a great song, not so heavy but awesome
7. Do What You Feel Like - 4/5 short fast paced song, good guitar and cool singing
8. I Am For Real - 4.5/5 weird song, the versus are heavy and i dont like them much, the chorus is cool, weird, and the bridge is echoy trippy and creepy
9. Get In - 4/5 this song is okay, heavy
10. Hoodies & Hoods 5/5 cool song, has some sort of spy quality to it, or something
11. State - 4/5 sorta reminds me of RATM but better, less annoying :)
12. Open Season 3.5/5 another RATMish song, probably my least favorite
all and all pretty awesome CD, different and cool, if you like this band check out Reville, they are the sortof rap/metal good stuff, but sadly they broke up
