5.0 out of 5 stars Don't fear the Man Without Fear's soundtrack!
Let's start with a little background. I'm a huge Daredevil and Marvel Comics fan. Basically? I'm a Marvel Zombie. To say the least, I had a particular idea of what a Daredevil soundtrack should be like. Unlike Spidey, this cd didn't disappoint.
1. Fuel - Won't Back Down (9/10): Strong opening track, that was clearly written for the movie, by the lead guitarist Carl...

2.0 out of 5 stars not so good
OK so I bought this mainly for the evanescence song. Bring me to life. On the cd was another excellent (but really slower) song by the same band. 2 1/2 of my 3 stars are awarded because they really made me discover (and appreciate) this new talent.
as for the other songs, well,the calling, nappy roots and moby are BAD. Fuel's song is good and autopilot off's raise...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Solid,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)This overall was a good soundtrack, and had some great songs on it. There were although, as there are to all soundtracks, just a few clunkers. Ill rate all the songs on here out of 5 stars.
1)Fuel-Wont Back Down. 5 Stars, a very solid outing, good lyrics and strong vocals. Great way to start, and really fits with the movie.
10)Chevelle-Until Youre Reformed. 3.5 Stars, Its a pretty good song, by Chevelle standards it could be better, but a breath of fresh air after Moby.
17)Evanescence-My Immortal. 5 Stars, Amy again shows her amazing singing voice. Starts slow and then picks up, A truly incredible ballad. Lyrics, vocals, and the instruments once it picks up, were all great.
So, overall there were a few that you may want to skip, but it definetely does have its high points, and I would say its worth buying.

Fuel's song is good and autopilot off's raise your rifles was greatly surprising. well-known bands were deceiving (saliva, seether, nickelback, chevelle, hoobastank, finger eleven and 12 stones), we know they can do much better. and lesser known bands (except evanescence and autopilot off) were not so great discoveries. I had waited for this cd with great expectations, bought it as soon as I could and it deceived me a lot.
1.0 out of 5 stars Typical,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)What began as an almost bearable movie became ridiculously disgusting once the meat of the soundtrack started to spin. The popular "artists and bands," all of whom merely sound like their inspirations--with different lyrics and barely noticeable changes to melody--provided a touch too much "mainstream" for the taste of the experienced music appreciateur. Sure, there were lots of good heavy tracks - good in the sense that they're full of distortion and display an abhorrent lack of musical/lyrical talent. Where's the unique sound? Where's the talent? A song by one of the industrial or rock gods would've made this soundtrack weatherable. Heck, even the movie xXx had some good ol' Rammstein to keep the sound original. This had plenty of ambience, with the addition of Moby, etc... but this ambience = beat mix/loops right off the shelf. Where's the taste in that? This soundtrack is disgraceful - not only to what could have been an almost decent movie, but to the industry of music as a whole. This CD goes on our "Garbage Hall of Shame" list...
Final Rating: All thumbs down
5.0 out of 5 stars Don't fear the Man Without Fear's soundtrack!,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)Let's start with a little background. I'm a huge Daredevil and Marvel Comics fan. Basically? I'm a Marvel Zombie. To say the least, I had a particular idea of what a Daredevil soundtrack should be like. Unlike Spidey, this cd didn't disappoint.
1. Fuel - Won't Back Down (9/10): Strong opening track, that was clearly written for the movie, by the lead guitarist Carl Bell.
2. The Calling - For You (10/10): Written by the lead vocalist and lead guitarist, this is a fantastic, beautifully sung song that has all kinds of movie references. This is what Spidey's 'Hero' TRIED to be.
3. Saliva - Bleed For Me (9/10): Strong track written by Josey Scott that, again, ties in with the movie. One point off for slight repetitiveness.
4. Seether - Hang On (9/10): Another strong track, cowritten by bass guiterist Dale Stewert. One point off for slight repetitiveness.
5. Nickleback - Leard the Hard Way (6/10): The first disappointment. It has nothing to do with the movie, and I'm not a fan of Nickleback. Still a decent song.
6. Drowning Pool & Rob Zombie - Man Without Fear (8/10): Fun track by the vocal god himself. It's obviously for the movie, with some fun lyrics, but is pretty repetitive.
7. Nappy Roots - Right Now (0/10): I hate this song. It's rap, with no correlation with the movie.
8. Moby - Evening Rain (0/10): I am not of fan of Moby, and he's a "love/hate" artist, unfortunately.
9. Evanescence - Bring Me To Life (10/10): I've been a huge Evanescence fan for years, ever since their first indie cd, and seeing them find so much success is wonderful. Buy the DD soundtrack for this song alone if you have doubts, because this is the only place where you can get this version of it with Paul McCoy.
10. Chevelle - Until You're Reformed (7/10): Not the strongest track, and Evanescence is hard to follow, but decent nonetheless.
11. Hoobastank - Right Before Your Eyes (9.5/10): Great song, that fits with the movie. Nearly a 10!
12. Paloalto - Fade Out/In (7/10): Good song, with a strong chorus, but with a few weak spots.
13. Revis - Caught In The Rain (8/10): Great song! It's overshadowed by other tracks, but well worth a listen.
14. Boysetsfire - High Wire Escape Artist (9/10): Fantastic! This song made me a fan of the artist. One point knocked off for the out of place death metal screaming near the end.
15. Autopilot Off - Raise Your Rifles (7/10): Short and feels out of place, but it's a fun song the nonetheless.
16. Graeme Revell - DD Theme (3/10): As a musical score fan, this kind of butchering ticks me off. From what I can hear of the actual score, it doesn't sound that great anyway, but it's hard to tell. Very disappointing.
17. Evanescence - My Immortal (10/10): Absolutely and utterly stunningly beautiful. I've loved this song from their indie cd, but nothing prepared me for the new reworking of it. Amy's vocals are breathtaking, and the new strings to go with the piano are heart wrenching.
18. Finger Eleven - Sad Exchange (9/10): Fantastic song that, if the movie plays out the way I think it does, will definately reflect on a certain part of the film.
19. Endo - Simple Lies (8/10): Another fantastic song at the end, and should relate to the film. Two points knocked off for the unnecessary death metalish parts near the end.
20. 12 Stones - Let Go (9/10): Strong track to close the album. It pales in comparison to My Immortal, but it's great in it's own right.
To sum it up...run, don't walk, out and buy it. NOW.
5.0 out of 5 stars Nu-Metal Primer,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)This album is truly like a long nu-metal sampler, and, frankly, has exposed me to some bands I had never previously heard of, but now are in heavy rotation in the old CD player (Autopilot Off, Revis).
While not an overly eclectic mixture, the contrasts of Rob Zombie's techno-metal with Nappy Roots rock-rap make for a good listen. Its rare when you find a soundtrack that will play from beginning to end, but here it is - buy it.
4.0 out of 5 stars A decent collection of Modern Rock,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)No matter how awful the movie "Daredevil" is, its soundtrack is definitely a nice CD. It consists of a lot of great songs perfromed by many popular bands now, such as The Calling, Nickelback, Saliva, and last year's brilliant newcomer Evanescence.
Listening through the CD makes me in high spirits. The P.O.D's song is a little too noisy to me, though, and I usually skip the track. Other than that, you can rock with the songs for more than one hour! Evanescence's "My Immortal" is the only ballad here, and it has gotten a lot of airplay these days so you know how beautiful it is. The theme song without lyrics is also uplifting.
In sum, the CD is composed of great rock music. If you're a rock addict like me, it surely won't disappoint you.
5.0 out of 5 stars To May Day and/or Your Mom,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)First things first, May Day...you are attacking people for being stupid for reading a review for a soundtrack and also for listening to and/or purchasing soundtracks. May I ask how stupid that makes you for taking the time to write a review for something that you have never heard and obviously know nothing about since you "would never listen to a soundtrack"? Also, may day and your mom, you are really really out of line in attacking people for buying a cd. Honestly, you're like the grunting, stupid bullies that plague my school! You are making fun of people and making them out to be idiots for something that they personally like and you have never even heard! Honestly, think these things through before you continue to make idiots of yourselves...I'm out, cover me folks.
Oh wait, this cd rocks hard, all the tracks are solid except the anti-christ rantings of boysetsfire, which sucks!
Now I'm out, respond if you have any bal*s, but prepare to be blasted.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good in a lame sort of way,
This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)I am not a fan of "pop rock." What is pop rock you ask? "Pop rock" songs are songs from bands that have more of a pop sound than a rock sound yet they end up in the "rock" section of music stores anyway. More or less all of the "rock" bands that aren't metal rock bands are "pop rock." I (as much as I hate to admit this) like the pop rock songs that are on this album. They are really good if you are not too embarrassed to buy a CD that is mainly pop rock. "For You" by The Calling is awesome. I listen to this song a couple of times a week. "Bleed for Me," and "Bring me to Life" are also good. This is, overall, a great album. I (as a snob music fan) hate to buy pop rock but this CD was well worth it. The first three tracks are so good that they make this CD worth buying. I hope they will re-release the album someday so they can include the two songs from the film that were cut from the soundtrack. (They cut the song that plays in the background when Kingpin is shown for the first time and they cut the song that is playing in the pub when Bullseye is shown with the darts.)
5.0 out of 5 stars Bullseye!,

This review is from: Daredevil (Audio CD)Quick one for all of you.. The song in the pub, when Bulls Eye is throwing darts. What is it??
