ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK Lara Croft Tomb Raider (2001 UK 15-track CD album featuring music from the motion picture includes Elevation [Tomb Raider Mix] by U2 Deep by Nine Inch Nails Wheres Your Head At by Basement Jaxx and Edge Hill by Groove Armada. Great Angelina Jolie Lara Croft picture sleeve)
Everything about crypt crawler Lara Croft is fake: her boobs, her archaeological background, her identity. So it's fitting that the equally synthetic Tomb Raider Soundtrack should arrive in time for her big-screen debut. U2 reel out the album's strongest track, a glossy remix of "Elevation" that skids all over glam-rock terrain and is just sexy enough to make it work as a single (as well as a scene-stealing video featuring Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie). Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor works himself into a fit on the grinding "Deep", but his tirade sounds outdated with its dumb lyrics and clunky, hookless programming. Speaking of computer blues, Groove Armada's wordless snoozer "Edge Hill" is about as far from shakin' that ass as a dance act can get. Thankfully, club reliables like the Chemical Brothers and Moby can still get it done; the former brings out the funk with a writhing dance tune that's as tireless as the film's heroine, while the latter's fuzzed-out big beats explode into a giddy freak-out that helps tighten up the album's bland midsection. Oddly, the only ladies in the house, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliot and young Nelly Furtado, are the ones who get Lara Croft's modus operandi right; no matter how perfect she may be, she still needs to "get her freak on". --Kristy Martin
Top Customer Reviews
-"Elevation" by U2. Unlike the rest of the album, this is a rock song. It's melody and lyrics makes it memorable, and is probably one of the best tracks here.
-"Deep" by N.I.N. Heavily synthesized instruments and loud drums, followed by loud singing. It's somewhat intense, but not too much. It's quite good.
-"Galaxy Bounce" by the Chemical Brothers. Rapid-pace techno track with repeating lyrics. Unlike other Chemical Brothers songs, it's not wholly irritating, and is actually cool.
-"Get Ur Freak On" by Missy Elliot. Others may enjoy this track for some reason, but to me, it sounds like some annoying music from the streets of Bangladesh.
-"Speedballin'" by Outkast. High-paced chaotic rap song. It's pretty phat.
-"Ain't Never Learned" by Moby. A dreary techno song that's not too fast or too slow. The lyrics may be irritating to some, but I like it.
-"The Revolution" by BT. Synthesized vocals dominate this rock song. It's really cool.
-"Terra Firma" by Delerium. Techno with choral singing. Gives the feel of being in a Cambodian jungle or something.
-"Where's Your Head At" by Basement Jaxx. One of the most chaotic songs on the album. Still a cool song.
-"Illuminati" by Fatboy Slim. Cut-up techno beats with cut-up vocals. It may be annoying in some ways, but unlike other Fatboy Slim songs, I found this one all right.
-"Absurd" by Fluke. Fast-beat techno. It's absurdly good.
-"Song of Life" by Leftfield. Downbeat techno track with some choral vocals.Read more ›
1. Elevation, U2: A good groovy rock tune made slightly better with a remix. U2, as usual, does not disappoint (complete with good video). Getting some radio airplay.
2. Deep, Nine Inch Nails: An average song; good beat. Lacks originality; could have easily been on The Fragile album. Getting limited radio time.
3. Galaxy Bounce, Chemical Brothers: A decent track; more jazzy than their usual songs. Hope their new album sounds like this. One of the soundtrack's better songs.
4. Get Ur Freak On, Missy Elliott: I don't know if this remix gives the song anything, but a good song can't be messed up, even with Nelly Furtado. Wierd video to boot. Original is getting a lot of radio play.
5. Speedballin', Outkast: An average song. Sounds remarkably like BOB from their most recent album.
6. Ain't Never Learned, Moby: A bad song. Sounds like Moby was trying to be Fatboy Slim and gave up halfway through production. I love Moby to death, but this song is not his best effort.
7. The Revolution, BT: Gets repetitive after hearing more than once. Lyrics could have made for a great song - and the beat falls short!
8. Terra Firma, Delerium: The best song on the album. Finds a balance between ambient, world, and big beat that must be listened to. Sounds like Enigma with more substance.
9. Where's Your Head At, Basement Jaxx: If this song is representative of their upcoming summer release, they might be in trouble.Read more ›
It starts out with U2 on the TOmb Raider mix of "Elevation". Most of it sounds like the radio, but I don't really know a good description for it. NIN's "Deep" song took a couple listens to like, but it really isn't the best from the album. It sounds so much like "Where Is Everybody?" from The Fragile but with more of a melodic chorus. It's finally growing from alternative DJs. Missy "missdemeanor" Elliot's song "Get Ur Freak On" is now mixed with Nelly Furtado for this soundtrack. I still like that beat for some reason. I'm pretty sure you know this song. Those are the radio singles.
It has one of hip-hop's greatest artists, OutKast, and they still forget of any failure on "Speedballin'" a song I can picture being played on the movie. There's also great techno from "gods of techno" Moby and Fatboy Slim, as their seperate tracks are no failure. It's too good for a fair review, there.

Hey, I don't care what anybody thinks. I give this CD 4 stars. Why 4? because there is only one song I don't like that much. Its the song Moby did. Read morePublished on Feb. 6 2003 by JediGryffen21
the 'official' review is BS.. she doesn't know what she's talking about. Elevation is, easily, the weakest track on the album, with the exception of Missy Elliot's song. Read morePublished on Oct. 5 2002 by J. Tyson
The opening scene of Tomb Raider shows Lara Croft foxing some kind of computer-controlled death machine by feeding it "Lara's Party Mix" --a cd of her favorite music. Read morePublished on June 13 2002 by Joanna Daneman
Definitely a keeper. The beat is non-stop. The re-mix of "Get Ur Freak On" is great, which is unusual enough in itself. I can see myself wearing out this CD!Published on April 6 2002 by Robin Cappello
