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

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 King...to 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.
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!Read more ›
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.
