If you can't tell from the track listing, a lot of it is actually not electroclash music, and contrary to popular belief, "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" is NOT on the soundtrack, thank goodness.
A lot of the music sounds like Kraftwerk-era old school techno when the beats-per-minute were still well below 140. For example Mannequin's "take me to the club" is bored-with-the-world down tempo dance music. Ladytron's "seventeen" and Miss Kitten's "Frank Sinatra" are Emperor Norton tracks which both leave you feeling that the vocalists are jaded, louche and stoned. "Frank Sinatra" has been described as "merciless" and it's very apt. Happy Thought Hall's "Get Happy" and W.I.T's "Inside Out" are also mindless, mild techno. Again, the female vocalists sound spacey, like they've been hit in the head with a hammer.Read more ›
Directed by lovers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, Monster ostentatiously exposes the nightlife of early 1990s New York, with its decadent club scene and depreciating drug network, through the eyes of one of the epoch's most controversial party promoters, Michael Alig (Culkin). Alig, along with his entourage: a drag queen debutante, James St. James (Seth Green), a drugged-out drag singer Christina (Marilyn Manson), a sexually adventurous disc jockey, Keoki (Wilmer Valderrama), and an imprudent club owner (Dylan McDermott) move to take New York City by storm with fetish-oriented soirées and drug-oriented midnight bashes.
As Alig begins to experiment with his newfound popularity, he takes advantage of the substance abuse permeated within the culture, and ultimately aspires to gain a place in society as a famous "party kid". But, as one would like to remember, all good things must come to an end. Monster moves from the garishness of a party culture to the depreciated moratorium that becomes Alig's life; drugs have become a common pleasure/goal, his relationships dwindle, and his life finally spins out of control in a climax that is both heartbreaking and disturbing.Read more ›
The nightclub undergrounds past , present , and future combine for the big hollywood mash up! So get on your over the top platforms, ultra-vivid-makeup and and uber-huge-eyelashes while playing this energetic club music compilation where it all gets thrown together for the great SOUNDTRACK to PARTY MONSTER! It has the feel of modern electro'clash' and great new electronic tracks with a few classics thrown in as well. >unable to see the NEW film yet<
I cant believe I have this soundtrack now!
My mom phoned Music World and they had one and saved it for me and now I own it-and Im so happy to finally own a piece of Party Monster merchandise!
All the songs are great-but my favorite is money success fame glamour-its the coolest song!
Of course in every Seth Green movie the soundtracks are way cool!
I THINK ITS SO IMPORTANT TO BEGIN WITH A BANG-DONT YOU?!

This is such a great CD. I was never really a fan of dance/techno music before, but now I am hooked. These songs match the film so perfectly, it's insane. Read morePublished on July 1 2004
-it doesn't represent early club culture in the least
-its more like a representation of the dying electroclash fad of the late 90s/early 00s
