Australian Version Including an Unlisted Bonus Track: 'this is Not a Dream' by Apollo 440 and Morphine. Also features Alternate Cover Art.
In a bordering-on-brilliant idea, the overseers of The Spawn soundtrack proposed an idea to a host of bands that went something like this: "you metal kids go play nice with the electronic geeks and maybe you'll make beautiful music together." Well, guess what? It happened. From the sexy, screamy sounds of the opening cut "Can't You Trip Like I Do" (courtesy of Filter and The Crystal Method) to the funkified "One Man Army" (Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello mixing it up with The Prodigy), the disc is as hot as the Spawn's home and twice as heavy as the monster himself. If you like the CD, rent the video; the soundtrack is front and center in the film, kind of like MTV with a plot. --Denise Sheppard

In this record, the blend of styles is seamless: it does sound like a whole new style altogether, a development from the mid-90s industrial stuff. This is the future, and the trend does not stop here: Living Colour and Radiohead, among many others, have been doing a similar blend of rock and eletronica which deserve attention.
The album's finest tracks are Tom Morello and Prodigy's, Slayer and Atari Teenage Riot's (the noisiest thing I've ever heard!), Marilyn Manson and Sneaker Pimps' (even though the pimps should have imprinted their brand a little more, I think), Metallica and DJ Spooky's (a strong candidate to the album's best one) and finally the hidden song: This is Not a Dream, a mix of Morphine and Apollo 440. Like anything those two artists put out, it's simply GREAT, moody, a song full of textures.
The reason why I don't rate it 5 stars is that the album's songs don't really stick in your head. But you can't help but to be affected by them, every time you hear it!!!
and i am not one of thoose types of peoples that throws
out perfect scores because there are a few good song or
it is their favorite artist. First off, i am a HUGE fan of
Metal, Electronica and Rave - so of COURSE i am going to like
this album. But the team-ups are simply awesome. Metallica
and DJ spookey - excellence. Manson and the Sneaker Pimps?
Simply, utterly, astounding!
(Can't You) Trip Like I Do (Filter & Crystal Method) is one of the best songs on the CD, and a truley great song.
Real catchy, and haunting. The vocals supplied are simply awesome, real haunting and eerie. Loving' the techno-remix .
But the best song on the disc is the song that follows, Mansons 'Hard Long Road out of Hell'. Really realy catchy. I LOVED this song when i saw the movie, and was the reason i went to get this record. A real cool song. The vocals are the best part, but the guitars are nicy and fast paced and crunchy - really really great song. Stabbing Westward was awesome, supplying the song featured during the motocycle chase in the film. A great DarkRave-Metal song, real real nice. Honorable mentions go to Korn (and the Dust Bros.), Moby (and the Butthole Surfers) and Slayer (And Teenage Atari Riots). All in all, this is an AWESOME cd. I demand you go get it, it simply rules! Its one of thoose CD's you can listen to all the way through without skipping. Really really great album.
Part of what makes this album successful are Walters' choices for rock artists. More than a few of the rockers make industrial rock, and thus many of them are accustommed to working with electronic beats. Even those who don't make industrial often bring useful experience to the project: Soul Coughing has always been sample heavy, and Tom Morello is essentially a hip-hop DJ who uses a guitar instead of turnables.
There are quite a few tracks that are worthy of being singles ("(Can't You) Trip Like I Do," "The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell," "No Remorse (I Wanna Die)"), but like most compilation albums, it falls short at times. Korn and The Dust Brothers turn in a song feels a bit too minimalist, and the contribution of Henry Rollins and Goldie is almost too experimental to be enjoyable. Nevertheless, these are very slight blemishes on one of the most original soundtracks of all time.
