Product Description

Product Description

Matrix Reloaded boeasts one of the most anticipated soundtrack albums in years. Its predecessor, the soundtrack to 1999's blockbuster The Matrix was Grammy nomminated, platinum and Top 10, remaining on the pop chart for more than a year. Now Matrix Reloaded: The Album, featuring all new recordings from Rob Zombie, Deftones, Rob Dougan, and Marilyn Manson, as wall as today's heavieast acts, including Linkin Park, P.O.D., electronica superstar Paul Oakenfold, and rock favorite Dave Matthews Band.

It would be impossible--and unfair--to expect The Matrix Reloaded to surpass the dizzying special effects, philosophical mind-twisters, and wicked sci-fi mayhem of the first Matrix movie. The same holds true for its soundtrack sequel which, like the original, sets an ominous atmosphere with industrial beats, in-your-face metal riffs, and supersonic computerized techno. Highlights include Linkin Park's swirling morass of scratches, stutters and keyboards; the grooves thrown down by Oakenfold and Fluke that party with the gloom of a burned-out factory; and Rob Zombie, P.O.D., and Marilyn Manson's explosive, brain-bending digi-rock. Unfortunately, for the most part, the dark patches of Reloaded plod rather than soar (the Deftones' murky "Lucky You"), and rehash tired ideas instead of creating new frontiers (an Oakenfold remix of Dave Matthews Band that sticks out like khaki pants at a goth club). Surprisingly monotonous, Reloaded is unfortunately yet another second act that pales in comparison to its predecessor. --Annie Zaleski

"What if tomorrow this war could be over? Isn't that worth fighting for? Isn't that worth dying for?" Stirring stuff from the lips of Morpheus as he rallies the people before the final battle at the beginning of Matrix Reloaded.

'Matrix Reloaded' followed in the present trend of Hollywood movies, where the sequel is better than the original. (Although I must admit to the plot being a bit too confusing for my associates Lang Reid and Dear Hilary, both of whom had their feathers thoroughly ruffled in the confusion of who was what, and where and when, Hilary kept on swooning over Neo though.) Harry Potter's magical second movie certainly outstripped it's predecessor; the Lord of The Ring movies just get better and better; Charlie's Angels get sexier and sexier, and Terminator gets more rowdy by the minute. Perhaps the only one not managing to keep up with the trend is the Star Wars pre-quells, but then that was quite a hard act to follow. 'Matrix Reloaded' was a huge seminal step forward from the first movie, setting the bar even higher for the others to follow. The same can be said for the double C.D. collection that goes under the collective title 'Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture'. Knocking the soundtrack from the previous movie into a cocked hat.

The music is split between the two discs into inspired by and actual soundtrack. The first coming under the various artist category and the second mainly coming from the pen of the wonderful Don Davis.

Opening song is 'Session' by 'Linkin Park', one of those bands that perhaps us old metal dogs have been a bit sniffy about in the past, because of their cross overuse of sampling and rap vocals.

Let's get one thing out of the way: I'm a Matrix fan. Okay. With that taken care of, I can now tell you what I think of this soundtrack. To be perfectly honest, it is fairly good. Not great, but not bad either. There is a song to please everyone on disk one which is a good idea. But being the metal fan that I am, I don't like a few of them.
Sessions: Not a fan of Linkin Park, but this is okay due to no lead singer.
This Is The New S***: Not one of the best songs on here.
Reload: Now that's more like it! A great song for everyone!
Furious Angels: A fair song.
Lucky You: I'm not a big Deftones fan, and this song doesn't really make me want to listen to them much.
The Passportal: Another okay song.
Sleeping Awake: Like everyone else who has reviewed this, I'm not a P.O.D. fan. But this song is one of my favorites on the album.
Bruises: This song is pretty powerful. But that is a good thing in my book.
Calm Like A Bomb: Another okay, but not a favorite of mine song.
Dread Rock: For being techno, this is actually a good song.
Zion: Another techno song, but still good.
When The World Ends: This is a great song, but it is a remix and this makes me sad. Don't skip it though, it's good.
Disk Two is a collection of the original music from the movie. I personally love this cd even more than the first one. Now you may not, but hey, that's your opinion. I can't change your opinion, only you can do that. I suggest giving this cd a chance, especially if you are into techno or metal.

I bought this soundtrack because I liked the movie and I always like to collect soundtracks from the movies I like.
Well, the best track in here is "This Is The New Sh*t" from Marilyn Manson (it's nothing new, but it's a great song). The second best is "Sleeping Awake" from P.O.D. (the videoclip is also great).
The first CD is full of heavy metal, rap and techno tracks, and the second CD includes some classical songs featured in the movie. My favorite is "Main Title", because it reminds me more of the movie. The greatest thing about the soundtrack is that you can get extras in the second CD such as Matrix Reloaded Trailer, Final Flight Of The Osiris Trailer, Animatrix Trailer and Enter The Matrix Making-Of. If I can say so, this is already enough to buy the soundtrack, if you are a Matrix fan you can't miss this soundtrack.
Unfortunately, I couldn't get any wallpapers on my iMac, I don't know why I couldn't acess the Desktop Folder, so you iMac users out there might know that you can't acess that folder. Buying the soundtrack you can also get a code for the Enter The Matrix videogame (these guys know how to sell their franchises or what?).
Overall, it's not a great soundtrack, but it's worthy if you are a soundtrack collector or a Matrix fan, mainly because of the trailers.

This soundtrack is much better than the first, both in that the two CDs come together, and that Don Davis is getting some help now. It follows the tradition of the first matrix in that there's hardly any score included. Don Davis does well with the first two tracks, both of which we've already seen in the first movie. Then Juno Reactor, a pretty lame synth band, clomes in and shines with a taiko drum track, "Teahouse." Wish it'd been longer, though. Rob Dougan's genius comes out again in "Chateau," and then, the song that shadows the rest of the album, "Mona Lisa Overdrive," which combines Don Davis' orchestral cues with the Juno Reactor Synth, with some insanely fast strings ripping in minor jazz keys behind it, as well as some incrdible percussion. "Burly Brawl" is a great piece as well, but wuold be a lot better if the break in the middle of the song was removed. As for the OST, other than some really bad techno, it's quite good. Rage Against the Machine and Rob Dougan, as in the first album, really take the cake, but Rob Zombie's "Reload" and Marilyn Manson's "This is the new s**t" are pretty good too. Also enjoyable are th songs by Unloco and P.O.D.
