Product Description

Product Description

Scorpion King ~ Soundtrack

The track listing reads like a who's who of the nu-metal genre, with brand-new songs from chart toppers including Godsmack, Creed, and Nickelback. Especially strong are System of a Down's orchestrated-meets-intense "Streamline," Sevendust's fervent and unique "Corrected," and Nickelback's raucous, edgy, raw rocker "Yanking Out My Heart," while Creed's typically musically morose five-minute ballad "To Whom It May Concern" will certainly delight fans. New band 12 Stones show promise with their straightahead, guitar-heavy "My Life," while Flaw's layered, soaring, and mesmerizing "Only the Strong" sounds hit-bound, as does Injected's vibrant "Burn It Black." As with Godsmack, Mushroomhead's contribution was penned specially for the movie, the suitably "soundtracky" audio track "turned down" to suit the onscreen action. If the flick--the third of the Mummy series--fades from memory quickly, its musical accompaniment is well equipped to stand the test of time. --Katherine Turman

First off I will say that the obly reason this soundtrack came into my posession is because of Godsmack's smash hit single "I Stand Alone". That song is one of the band's best (even if it is a single and got overplayed on the radio) songs and is an adrenaline pumping theme that only leaves you wanting for more. The rest of The Scorpion King soundtrack is a typical who's who listing of mainstream post modern grunge sensitive rock and nu-metal. Out of all the other tracks, Mushroomhead's "Along the Way" and System of a Down's "Streamline" are the only ones worth any time, while tracks from Nickelback, Creed, Drowning Pool, Hoobastank, and 12 Stones are instantly disposable. The disappointing colaboration between Rob Zombie and Ozzy Osbourne (from Rob's equally disappointing "Sinister Urge") is featured here as well as a throwaway track, and the rest of the featured songs aren't anything special. All in all, mainstream rock listeners will love this, but those craving something heavier (or something which displays what is called talent and originality) are better suited to look elsewhere.

Suppose that Rob Zombie writes the most scorching hard rock song he's penned since "Thunderkiss 65." Wouldn't it be cool if he got Ozzy to sing trade-off, dueling lead vocal on this great new song? Well metalheads, that's exactly what has happened here...the song is "Iron Head", and if you haven't heard it yet, you need to pick up the "Scorpion King Soundtrack" right away, because this song kicks MAJOR [rear] and it's not to be missed!!
Fortunately, "Iron Head" is not the only worthwhile song on this compilation (although it's head and shoulders above all the other songs). Godsmack's radio hit "I Stand Alone" is getting the most early attention (you've heard it, unless you've been in a cave somewhere). New tracks by Lifer and Injected are also on the airwaves, and Mushroomhead's song, written specifically for the movie, will soon be on rock radio as well.
The album contains fine tracks by Nickelback, Hoobastank, Coal Chamber, and Creed that aren't available elsewhere, as well. I'm assuming that Creed fans will like the track from Scorpion me, it was one of the weakest songs on the disc. If you've heard Creed's latest, "Weathered", you won't be surprised; this song is consistent with the material on "Weathered."
This CD has plenty of blistering, head-banging quality music, from the first note to the last. It's a great addition to any hard rocker's collection.

This CD is probably one of my Favorite CDs of all time.
Godsmack - "I stand alone" - I'm learning the guitar part for this song. Definitley one of my favorite songs on the CD. I'm a new fan of Godsmack's work because of this song. 10/10
P.O.D. - "Set It Off [Tweaker Remix]" An OK song. Don't ge me wrong, I'm a big P.O.D. fan, but this version of SIO is not as good as the album version. 6/10
Drowning Pool - "break you" Pretty cool. I'm not a drowning pool fan. This isn't great, but is listenable. 5.5/10
System of a Down - "Streamline" - Its System of a Down, need I say more? This version is better than the one on Steal This Album, heavier and awesome! 10/10
Creed - "To Whom It May Concern" - Many people hate Creed. Many people love Creed. I love them, personally. This song is really quiet and kicks up at the end. 9/10
Nickelback - "Yanking Out My Heart" - I'm not a Nickelback fan. but this song is really catchy. The guitar part is pretty cool. 8/10
Hoobastank - "Losing my Grip" - Hoobastank is one of the best bands today. This song is one of their more mellow songs. Its awesome. 9/10
Flaw - "Only the Strong" - Flaw deserves MUCH more recongition than they get. This is the 1st song of their I heard. I love the guitar part, its VERY catchy. I've bought their CD, Through The Eyes, because of this ong, and I wasn't dissapointed! One of my favorites! 10/10
Rob Zombie & Ozzy Osbourne - "Ironhead" - I'm a big fan of both artists, so why wouldn't I love it? Its a really heavy song with some cool demonic noises, a signature move by the Zombie. The only downfall is that it CAN get annyoing if you overlisten it. 9/10
12 Stones - "My Life" - Never heard of 12 stones, but maybe I'll check out their stuff. This song is awesome, again with awesome guitar riffs!

This soundtrack - arguably the worst recorded by supposed nu-metal artists in history - fell way sort of my expectations. A flick through the track listing would suggest a good CD - with the likes of the melancholy Coal Chamber (whose new album "Dark Days" is awesome considering its genre), backed up by the strong vocals of Sevendust and the politically motivated lyrics of System Of A Down. However, as a whole the album is slow and lethargic - lacking the vigour which sustains such soundtracks as "The Matrix" and the best metal compilation "Route 666 - Volume 2". The lack of energy can easily be attributed to such acts as Creed and Nickleback (who are soft rock bands and nothing more), however I was also disappointed by the performance of Flaw who in their first album were "Flaw"less but have recently fallen into the world of soft riffs and melodic vocals.
To put it simply, with the likes of the rapish P.O.D. present, this album is not recommended for those who wish to experience hard hitting music, and are up for a decent mosh. The Scoprion King soundtrack would perhaps seem to promise this with the likes of System Of A Down present, however their track Streamline fails - like the rest of the album does - miserably through its gentle nature and sluggishness drums. The album recieves one star only because the last track by Coal Chamber "Glow" kept me interested enough to download the lyrics.
Don't buy this album - if you wish to utilise your money wisely purchase "Earth Crisis" - 1991-2001 album, which is effectively a collection of their best metal hits.
Alternatively, if you are tired of the tedious, repetivie nature of the nu-metal scene check out some strong brutal metal in the form of Meshuggah or even the softer Skinlab. Yet even this can be somewhat monotonous - so look to the skies of Sweden where death metal reaches its pinnacle with bands such as "Witchery" and my favourite "The Haunted", whose killer tracks include Hate Song and Hollow Ground.
